S2E8: Diane, Kimono Top

Damn, I miss Carla. But unfortunately, Season 2 is primarily centered around the relationship between Sam and Diane. So, we get more of Diane. More pastels, more lace, more priggish high-neck sweaters, more boring shin-length skirts. But once in a while she finds a little sartorial backbone. As with this kimono sleeve sweater and oversized pendant.

Once again, we find that even Diane, in 1983, could pass for a modern woman. As evidenced by Zara and Bottica:

S2E8: Carla, Hawaiian Prints (Again)

Having grown up on Kauai with a hula teacher mom and ukulele-collecting dad, I am a sucker for anything Hawaiian kitsch. So imagine my pleasure when Carla pulls out yet another Hawaiian print shirt in Season 2.

8.2

It’s a given that nothing beats a vintage Hawaiian shirt. But these aren’t too shabby:

S2E4: Carla, Vertical Stripes

Vertical stripes. You rarely see them, but when you do, they always look good. Kind of like zebras.

S2E2: Carla in Menswear

Boyfriend jeans don’t look great on those of us with Carla Tortelli’s stature. We 5’3″-ers and below don’t need any help looking short by wearing oversized cuffed pants. Boyfriend shirts, on the other hand, are universally flattering.

Maybe her sleazy ex-husband left it, maybe she found it in the bar’s lost & found. Either way, Carla’s men-at-work tee-shirt look fits her masculine (and emasculating) personality to a tee (pun intended).

Season 2!

Forty posts later, we’ve made it to Season 2! Carla kicks it off with a plaid shirt, a go-to look she returns to time and time again throughout the season.

It’s incredibly satisfying to find near-identical modern versions of Carla’s clothes. Below are shirts that correspond almost perfectly to Carla’s above, if I do say so myself.
