Nina Proudman and Offspring were BACK last night. I tell you. BACK.
Scroll down for the de-brief but let’s just say this was the episode I’d been waiting for. Pity there are only two episodes left of this season.
My secret squirrel on the ground in Melbourne did tell me that she saw them filming in her ‘hood … maybe they’ve started on season 7? Are you keen for more?
Anyhoo, to the task at hand: Nina’s wardrobe.
Episode 8 yielded two Nina outfits and her silk pjs look. I give a big thumbs up to all three.
Whenever Patrick is “around” her wardrobe seems to revert to the style we know and love.
This was also one of those episodes in which Nina gives us a non-boho, oh-so-slick evening look – always a treat.
In this case, it was her best “man” outfit for Martin and Cherie’s wedding.
She wore designer threads from head to toe – Yeojin Bae suit, Bianca Spender shirt and Jimmy Choo stilettos – but I’ve put together an alternative if this is a look you’d like to play along with at home.
1. Bird Keepers shirt $89.95 @ Birdsnest
2. Rock Finders Keepers earrings $99 @ Voult Collection
3. Hardy Amies silk tie $89.95 @ David Jones
4. Saba jacket $299
5. Verali heels $79.95 @ Styletread
6. Sportscraft pant $189.95

The de-brief (spoiler alert)
Oh, where do I begin? A wedding episode is always a good one, isn’t it? TV weddings are never without some kind of drama or tension.
An Offspring TV wedding has that and a whole lot of laughs too.
I really felt that emotional rollercoaster thing as I watched this episode – the most I’ve felt all season. That rollercoaster ride was what got me into Offspring all those years ago and it felt good to feel all those feels again.
From Martin’s instructional wedding dance video, to Cherie nearly pulling the pin on the whole deal, the pre-marital special cuddles being overheard by all the guests, to Jimmy and Will doing a nudie run through the reception, Zara getting smashed and Kim telling her to “shut your stupid doctor face” before both destroying the wedding cake, Nina and Harry’s obvious chemistry and Nina and Billie’s frank conversation, this wedding had it all.
Nina put herself in the poo with Billie and Harry after both found out about her egg harvesting and embryo making. I can’t blame either for being upset with her but that doesn’t mean I like what went down.
I feel Nina is still weighed down by grief. Imaginary Patrick showing up again looking all dreamy doesn’t help matters.
“Patrick, I don’t want to be in the real world any more.” (COME TO BED!)
But what if Billie doesn’t want Nina’s help? Has Geraldine called Billie on the whole Brodie/baby situation?
As for Geraldine’s secret romance, is this all about a new phase for Geraldine – a more stable, less flighty phase.
What if Harry and Nina could be a thing? If you’d asked me three episodes ago, I wouldn’t have been keen on this romance. Now I am and I want some kind action on this front before the series ends.
Please tell me I’m not alone with all these thoughts? Spill your thoughts on last night’s episode (and the outfits).
