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:

S1: Diane in Silks

Though she appears stiff in comparison to Carla’s loose tongue and tomboyish style, Diane’s wardrobe is a testament to her character and, in a way, bravery. Who of us would continue to wear silk “pussy bow” blouses despite their hideous name (and look)? Who of us would dare wear granny sweater vests and pilgrim shirts?

Sometimes, though, she reeled it in, trading her signature over-the-top prudishness and girliness for a simple silk shirt. Phew.
