Sam’s Women: The Best Friend, Part I

In this installation of the Sam’s Women series, we focus on Season 2, Episode 11, in which Diane receives a visitor:

Diane: “Hello, everyone. This is Heather Landon, my oldest friend.”
Carla: “Meet her this morning?”
Diane (to Heather): “That’s Carla. She likes a little witty repartee, she just isn’t capable of it.”

They may have met in fourth grade, but Heather is grown woman by the time she walks into Cheers. And I mean grown. And she looks good.

Unfortunately, Sam notices. And Heather starts flirting…

Below are expensive and inexpensive modern versions of her day-to-evening outfit. Rag & Bone vs. Uniqlo, Kelly Wearstler’s vs. Topshop’s takes on cupro pants, and two nearly identical black ankle boots for two very different prices.

S2E6: Diane, Red Sweaters

I know, I know. Too much Diane, not enough Carla. But since Sam and Diane started dating, every episode in Season 2 is Diane-saturated and Carla-thirsty. So, we have to make do with what we’ve got. Thankfully, even Diane’s dullest outfits always have a few redeeming qualities that keep them interesting. In this case, it’s the embellished neckline of her red sweater.

Sheer, polka dot, cutout, two-tone, and cropped, here are a few red sweaters with eye-catching details.

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).

Carla’s Nikes #2: Pink

We’ve seen Carla’s white Nikes (and the list of eBay keywords for finding the vintage Nikes Carla may have actually worn). This is installation #2 of the Carla’s Nikes series. And I’ve seen every episode ever made, so I can tell you now, that there are going to be plenty of these, spanning over ten years of Nike production.

When Carla does pink, it’s not in the silky pastel-y lacy frilly girly way that Diane prefers. Nah, when Carla does pink, it’s pink Nikes.

NIKES3

Nike still makes a pink Oceania and a pink Cortez, two of the shoes that Carla possibly wore. Don’t blame me, 80s shows on Netflix are pretty pixellated. But a bunch of other companies are making pink kicks today too.

S1E9: Carla, Oxblood and…Piglet?

I keep saying that each new Carla outfit is my favorite, but this one’s modern alternatives are so darling, I can’t help it. It’s my favorite.

If the color of these sweaters is known as oxblood, then the color of the blouses must be…piglet. And yes, that is a leather t-shirt.

1. Topshop Textured Knit Sweater. 2. ASOS Leather T-Shirt. 3. Forever 21 Pointed Collar Chiffon Shirt in Peach/Hot Pink. 4. Acne Patti Tape Pink.

As a longtime vegan and sister to Ruby Roth, author and illustrator of “That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals,” there are a million things wrong with this post. First, I love the leather shirt. I’m sorry! It’s incredible. It’s not like I’m personally buying or selling it, nor did I invent the color name “oxblood,” nor did I refer to the pink color as pork chop (though I did used to watch reruns of Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop as a child), but rather “piglet.” But I digress. Don’t buy the shirt. Or do, I might get a commission. But really, don’t. Do it. Don’t do it…

(I do realize that there is much hypocrisy present here, seeing as I have, and probably will continue to, post leather shoes. There’s just something about it being on a shirt that makes it more…leathery. And I’ll leave it at that, as I’ve now probably lost any readers I had by mentioning the word “vegan.”)

Here’s to the ever-present issue of fashion’s moral compass!

Cheers,

Chloe, lapsed vegan, traitor to my love of cows, soon-to-be-recipient of my sister’s scorn
