You know how much I love a pair of printed pants, don’t you?
Well it seems that this trend is also appealing to Nina-I-prefer-skinny-jeans-Proudman.
Nina Proudman style
Her second outfit on the show last night featured a pair of printed silk pants from French label Mes Demoiselles (for Australian stockists contact distributors Sharrock), worked back with a black top, pale blue cropped jacket and … wait for it … wedges, not boots.
Do you know how much it pleases me that Nina has shoes other than boots in her wardrobe? A lot.
I also love that this outfit was very wearable and translatable for us all.
Nina’s third outfit featured one of her favourite labels – Johnny Was – in one of her favourite styles, a kimono top over a tank tucked into belted jeans.
Johnny Was is not a budget label but if you are a lover of silk and beautiful design then it’s worth a look. There is a large and extra large available at Zambezee Boutique. To find a boutique near you that stocks Johnny Was, visit the stockist locater for International Fashion Group.
Johnny Was kimono $279
Baby Zoe (missed the interview here on SY with the mum of the twins who plays Zoe? Catch up here) featured a lot in last night’s episode – as well as her baby accessories.
The pram itself is a Baby Jogger city mini GT and the extra bag on board is the Noosa Amsterdam mid-brown shopper we first saw in episode 4.
Nina’s fourth and final outfit was a Nina classic too – loose cream top, skinny belted jeans and a colourful floral scarf. I do love that the scarves are back around Nina’s neckline. You?
The de-brief (spoiler alert)
Words to describe last night’s episode? Gut-wrenching, waterworks-inducing, poignant, humourous, romantic.
Yes, in typical Offspring style we had it all but with an episode underpinned by a very sick little Alfie and his parents’ distress at watching him be so sick and being unable to do anything about it, it was always going to be an episode that had us on the edge of our collective lounges.
Thanks to Geraldine’s “exquisite” liver that the doctor also declared a “medical mystery”, Alfie got a fighting chance at life.
Geraldine’s pending surgery to facilitate this saw Darcy arrive home filled with love and Phillip go the pash until Geraldine reminded him of his marriage and her morals. Her sly humour didn’t suffer at all with her preparing a picnic of liver pate for all the Proudmans waiting for news on her’s and Alfie’s surgery.
Clegg’s been sleeping behind his desk at the hospital because he’s over-donated to too many causes in a grief-stricken response to Patrick’s death and now has to rent out his house to pay for his “philanthropic outlays”.
Billie stepped up and helped Jimmy out at the Tacorias before serving up a slice of Lawrence that she described as “uncommonly good”!
As for Nina’s potential beaus, Thomas politely kept in contact but kept his distance during the Alfie crisis but Nina ended the show suggesting to Thomas that maybe dating was worth a try. Meanwhile Leo also showed his potential – just like Nina when under pressure in a work situation he’s got it all together and is incredibly thoughtful and caring.
Time will tell how that all pans out. Time will tell.
