I’m not sure where Sutton developed her style or her extensive wardrobe. It certainly wasn’t through the influence of her mother.

What is that? A nightgown? A tribute to Karen Carpenter? I don’t even know.

 

She does try a little for luncheon, but of course, colour and a nice cut is just too much for this lady who lunches. %image_alt%

Sigh. A grey dress on par with the colour of milk after you finish your Lucky Charms. Lady, you need to step it up real soon or the YKYLF staff room is going to start writing strongly worded letters on your behalf to the costume department.

 

Fortunately for the costume department, Moms Mercer finally gets it right with her formal wear. Probably because it’s a black and white ball.

But on the kind of embarassing side, our wee little lollipop Mads wore the exact same dress.

%image_alt%

The poor little lollipop is taking it with all kinds of grace. Besides, everyone is going to be staring at how her giant hair makes her even more of a lollipop.

 

But how do you even deal with that kind of social faux pas? Do you politely say something? Offer one of them a coat? Or stare in shock and horror?

%image_alt%

 

Apparently shock and horror is the reaction Justin went for. Then again, that reaction could be because no one ever expected Moms Mercer to grow a pair and yell at anyone, ever, let alone golden boy turned d-bag turned Revengefan (!!!) Justin. Dude did not have that family figured out at all.

Nice pearls, Moms Mercer. But that hair combined with the pearls is making you look ultra matronly. I know this is your Ladies who Lunch Society event, but I bet the other ladies know that doesn’t mean look ten to fifiteen years older than you acutally are.

 

Overall, its been a bad day for Justin. Not only does he get yelled at, but he gets confronted by the doctor who he came to get revenge (!!!) on and he just can’t get things worked out with sweet and adorbs Laurel. Who appears to be waging a war against her breasts.

Kitten, this is the second week in a row you’ve chosen a dress that separates and lowers your boobs. What is up with that? You’ve got lots of time when you’re older to deal with boobs that aren’t naturally perky, so live it up while you can.

 

Laurel is also making up for lost Char time by dressing as though she were going to a cocktails event. Future politicians of the world will be pleased to know that this high school in Arizona is raising a league of women ready for all of their public events.

And she could maybe scale back on the bag a bit. A good rule of thumb is to choose a bag that isn’t the size of your torso. But then, these teens of Arroyo love their bags big and not really coordinating.

 

Her rack is probably stoked by her choices of lunch and evening wear as it gets to be displayed in a fashion that is both tasteful and flattering.

My favourite thing about Laurel, other than being as cute as a button, is her knack for accessorizing. Check out day-to-night Laurel.

Day:

Night.

Perfect. I especially dig the ferny like bits hanging from her evening necklace. Even when she’s heartbroken, she knows you need good accessories.

 

It’s things like that which keep me going through the lull in the fashion on the show. Because inevitably a dude shows up (with a shirt on…yawn) and tries to bore me into a fashion coma.

Apparently, today was chambray day at Arroyo.

%image_alt%

Sheesh. Y’all need to text ahead and see what the other is wearing.

 

Let’s get back to the fun. Like Mads’ luncheon wear that is totally the sort of thing you’d wear to a lunch at the club. So long as you mean “vodka and an eight-ball at Studio 54” when you say “lunch at the club”.

I’m not sure what the fabric growth on her shoulder is, but she should get it checked out.

%image_alt%

The shoes, however, are straight up fierce. Still more midnight at the discothèque than mid-day at the country club, but what the hell else are you going to wear with that dress? It’s not like you can wear ballet flats or loafers at this point.

 

Let’s end with Alec’s new ladyfrienemy Rebecca. She had made such a splash in the first episode (maybe literally? I feel like it’s no coincidence a car went in a lake on the day she showed up. Partly because this is the Town Without Coincidences – every single thing is somehow linked to one thing or another. Or to an Alec and a Ted). Sadly, Rebecca has managed to make even a glitter cocktail dress look kind of frumptacular.

%image_alt%

 

How did you do that? Did you really need the dress with the crew neck? At least she pulled it from the fire with a killer up do and great earrings.

%image_alt%

Her and Alec are going to be so good together. Bitch looks straight up evil. I love it.
