I know it doesn’t make for good TV but couldn’t we just see Nina and Patrick stay happy without any emotional speed bumps on their path to parental bliss?
Apart from loving the Nina/Patrick interaction – and by interaction I mean INTERACTION – I very much enjoy the sisterly banter between Nins and Billie. They seem to revert to child-like versions of themselves.
The cafe scene between them in this episode had me in stitches. Nina seems to crumble to a blithering, insecure mess in Billie’s presence, leaving Billie to come out with such gems as:
She’s a red, hot dibber dobber. You’re on Team Patrick.
This hot on the heels of Billie repeating like a three-year-old, “tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me” … until Nina did just that.
More’s the pity she didn’t tell Dr Patrick straight away, though.
I’m sorry, but what game is Elouise playing out. And Dr P for that matter (although he is a little forgiven thanks to him sharing with us a jeans, towel and tux triple treat). Outpouring all your “stuff” to a stranger then said stranger texting you in the middle of the night with a cryptic message.
Be on full alert, Nina. Full alert.
There were two Nina Proudman outfits in this episode. The second I liked very much. Regulation jeans and tan boots with a loose white silk tank, blue kimono jacket (sorry, I’m not sure where it’s from. Looks very much like a Johnny Was but if so is not current season stock) and multi-coloured scarf worn with two layered necklaces and a decorative shoulder bag. This is the first scarf we’ve seen Nina in this season as the costume designers have made a conscious decision to drop them from her maternity wardrobe, instead concentrating on layered necklaces around the neck.
I’m going to tackle Nina’s first outfit as it was my favourite. The white lace kimono jacket over a floral and lace top and THOSE BLUE BOOTS .. what’s not to love?
The white blouse worn as a jacket is believed to be by Alice McCall and not currently available.
1. Blue Bungalow tunic $59 | 2. Johnny Was cover-up $319 | 3. Design Studio earrings $12.95 @ Myer | 4. Cat Hammill necklace $79.95 | 5. Uberfine necklace $185 | 6. Wittner navy boots $199.95 | 7. Mavi jeans $139.95 @ Birdsnest | 8. Nancybird bag $250
If it’s ok with you, I’m going to look at Billie Proudman’s style next week. I find with my multiple wardrobe personalities I swing between the style elements of both sisters … and quite a few readers have been asking for a Billie style breakdown.
Let me know whose style you most like: Nina or Billie?
PS. It’s my birthday today … I’m giving myself the day off (number one advantage of being your own boss) but if you have questions, leave them in the comments and I’ll get back to you tomorrow.
