Do you love it when Nina Proudman dresses up to go out – instead of to work or play?
It is a reminder that her wardrobe is not filled with only kimono jackets, embroidered tunics, jeans and boots.
We get an insight into stepping-out Nina and I do like what I see.
Remember the Wheels and Dolls Baby dress from three years ago? Or the frock she wore two years ago to the Tuff Muff lesbian night club?
The 2014 version of Nina’s night-time outfit is one that we can very much replicate at home. Perfect for a girls’ night out, a date night or, as in Nina’s case, a 20-year-school reunion.
Nina Proudman style
I’ve re-created the look here for less (well, except for the shoes).
Earlier in the show, Nina was back in a green Johnny Was embroidered top. You can browse a selection of current Johnny Was here.
Did you also notice Nina’s red silk kimono jacket? Of COURSE you did. Unfortunately you won’t find it in store or even on eBay. It was custom-made for her for the show. Le sigh.
Her new bag, though? That’s another story.
It’s a Noosa Amsterdam mid-brown Shopper bag with five “chunks” added to personalise Nina’s look. For an online stockist of Noosa Amsterdam, click here or add in your postcode here to find a stockist near you.
The de-brief (spoiler alert)
This episode was full of some historic Proudman family interesting facts, don’t you think?
Turns out Nina and Billie were actually at school together for three months. Nina had been accelerated up a grade, Billie kept back a grade.
Then Zara putting two and two together (in her own special way!), matching up that exact time with the time that Billie spent in juvenile detention.
The magical formula for a school reunion. NOT.
Debating champion Nina did persist and Billie did show up after Lawrence rejected her invitation for sex … and in between tears and Billie’s emotional laughter releases, we saw again the strong bond of sisterhood between these two.
“I’m so grateful you look after Zoe and you look after me. You are her other parent. I couldn’t have done any of this without you,” Neens admitted.
We also had our fair share of topless men. From ghost of Patrick under the sheets, to hunky dad at the pool and outside the school reunion. Wonder if that will go anywhere?
Over to you. Best bits/worst bits of last night’s episode? Which Nina look did you like best?

PS. It’s my birthday tomorrow so I’m taking the day off. Monday is a public holiday so I’ll be back on the blog Tuesday.
