Ok, so don’t get mad at me. Please.
I had promised you a Billie Proudman style post but last night Neens went and pulled out a trifecta in the Offspring wardrobe department that could not be ignored, could it?
I can assure you that I’ll have Billie’s style dissected and sorted for you here on the blog very soon.
First up Nina Proudman rocked her classic jeans, knee-high tan boots and tank with an amazing floral kimono. I’m a huge fan of the kimono jacket and have many in my wardrobe. You need to keep your shopping wits about you and stock up during spring and summer. I blogged about them here.
Tracking down kimonos locally is pretty tough at the moment (unless your budget stretches to Camilla) … you’ll need to wait for the change of fashion season or head on over to overseas stores and go shopping. There are a few options at ASOS like this one pictured.
I’d been waiting for this outfit, as had the team at Binny, Australian designers behind this striped maxi skirt. They did not know for sure if the skirt was going to get a run on Nina but the costume designers had called it in as an option and confirmed to me in this post that it was on the show.
In a clever move, Binny managed to secure more of the fabric and as of last night was still taking orders on this skirt (it has previously been sold out). I love it, I do. The drop waist is flattering on most people but you need to keep your cami tucked in and top, cardi or jacket cropped up top to balance out the volume.
So, Nina is 16 weeks pregnant. I suspect her regular jeans are busting at the seams and that’s why we’re seeing some dresses and skirts added to the mix … before she pulls on the maternity jeans.
This is a maxi dress from Australian designer Natasha‘s collection last summer. There’s a heavy ’70s influence, made even heavier by Nina’s addition of the tan tie belt and boots. It’s a style that wouldn’t be as easy for most people to incorporate into their wardrobes but I’m sure there are more than a few willing to give it a try.
Which outfit did you like best?
Funniest moment from last night’s episode?
And who else melted just a little with that final scene when Patrick is telling his father about the baby?
