Sam’s Women: The Blonde Bombshell

If you recall from the first Sam’s Women post about Season 1, Episode 2, Diane believes that Sam only dates big-breasted airheads. This is the blonde bombshell (in a cashmere sweater dress) that leads her to that conclusion:

Sam: Do you think there’s a chance you and I could go somewhere and laugh together?
Brandee (“with two e’s,” she said): My mother told me to watch out for guys in bars.
Sam: Well then let’s get out of this bar so you don’t have to work.

(Apparently that was a good line in 1982.)

What my mother always told me, wherever I was headed, and especially if I was wearing a dress, was to “bring a sweater.” Thus, the sweater dress:

Pilot: Carla Tortelli

Image

Alright, alright. So Carla Tortelli’s outfit in the 1982 pilot episode of Cheers isn’t the best example of her sharp style. But if you can look past the (brillo pad) haircut and unfortunate (mom pant) pleats, this can be easily reimagined as a cute modern outfit. The bones are all there: a chunky oversized knit sweater, an embellished red tee tucked into high waisted colored denim, and a skinny black belt. Update the proportions and it doesn’t feel like the 1982 recession is just beginning. It feels more like, well, the current recession.
