Every week Offspring dishes up for us a virtual wardrobe feast. I think it’s important for us to remember that getting the Nina Proudman look … or the Billie … or Zara … or Kerry … or Geraldine look is just that – virtual.
Each week I get asked about specific pieces from the show and where to buy them. In more cases than not, what each of the cast members is wearing is no longer available. So many of the pieces this season are vintage – so very much not available. Others have been custom made; others are samples from previous or upcoming seasons.
That’s just how a wardrobe department works for a TV show – plus they are filming in advance. Check out my interview with the Offspring chief costume designer here to get a clearer picture on this.
What we have had available matches on this season is a number of the jewellery pieces, a couple of frocks and most of the jackets/trenches Nina wears. Aside from that, exact matches have been few and far between.
Recreate the Nina Proudman look
This week’s episode was no exception. The scarf and earrings were vintage. The top Thurley (not current), pants were Chanel and the boots Seed from a couple of seasons ago. The trench? That’s available here.
I’m coming around to Nina’s neck-tie wide-legged pant look. I would still prefer to see it without a boot but I guess a doctor has to be a teeny bit practical in the footwear department.
This was a sophisticated day look for Nina and out of the box for a job interview – but like all things Nina Proudman style, she can do no wrong.
1. Imonni top $119.95 @ The Iconic | 2. ASOS pant $56 | 3. Nicole Fendel earrings $20.30 | 4. Love Fairley necklace $230 (exact match) | 5. Django & Juliette boots $219.95 | 6. Milana scarf $99.95 @ David Jones
Nina’s second outfit in this week’s episode was a silk-goddess take on formal wear. Only Nina can wear a wide-legged silk pant to a cocktail party and get us all thinking and wondering how we can re-think traditional occasion wear. The pant is available on sale at Flannel but the top has sold out.
The de-brief (spoiler alert)
Except for Ray’s 10th birthday party (and even that came crashing down), Zoe’s “good uck” cupcakes baked for Nina ahead of her interview, and Jimmy and Zara’s reconciliation, there weren’t a lot of FUN happenings.
Things I did like: Nina really coming into her own in the interview. Oh Nina, even though you missed out on the promotion, you couldn’t have handled it any better.
I think the writers will long be dining out on the “party pash and a prod” love “hexagon” between Kerry and Will and Jimmy and Zara. It just offers such good material … particularly when there is a gathering of the entire Proudman clan.
Are you just as confused as I am about the whole Billie and Dan situation? Oh GOOD. I thought it was just me. What was that stunt with the fancy drinks and a whole bunch of lies? I think we haven’t seen the last of Dan … or is that just wishful thinking on my part?!
So tell me, what was your highlight from last night’s episode. Favourite outfit?
