This week, we learn a bit more about Chloe’s background… namely, that her father is a bike-riding middle aged crisis-ing hottie, and her mother is in a wheelchair. And they aren’t really separated. Although, we (and June) only learn that after Chloe’s set up her Dad with June, bringing a whole new creeptastic meaning to this episode’s title.
Before we get to the Oedipal creepy times, we see Chloe’s so fabulous that she prioritizes accessorizing over proper dental hygiene:
Peppermint Shnapps is, apparently, “a whore’s toothbrush.” Life lessons from Chloe. Also? She’s downgraded last week’s 90s-inspired outfits to this early 80s look, featuring an off-the-shoulder tie dyed tee emblazoned with the words Boys Boys.
I can’t be hating, though. I used to rock a similar tee that said Dance Dance Dance… in the mid-80s. When I was like, 8.
We also see Chloe sporting this Desperately Seeking Susan style dress in the elevator:
Krysten Ritter is beyond gorgeous, which is the only thing selling this look.
Things pick up when she slips into an LBD with contrasting red belt for her house party:
Yeah, I don’t know what to wear when setting up your father (who’s still married to your mother) with your roommate, but this looks cute.
My fave outfit this week, though, is this cray cray DIY-style sweater:
Knowing Chloe, she didn’t knit this herself, but probably bribed someone into making it for her. I’d totes wear this, and not just because red is my fave colour and I’m kinda obsessed with French.
Her final outfit this week includes this cerulean leather jacket. Jewel tones look amaze with her fair colouring and dark hair, and this coat knocks it out of the park. I also like Dawson James’ look here…
His inspiration was 1) to show up James Franco by being a better acting teacher and 2) to look like Indiana Jones in his teaching outfit. This leads me to ponder…
1) I’m sure his lessons were at least on par with whatever James Franco’s been teaching and 2) how did they not cast The Beek, instead of Shia Labeouf, in the fourth Indiana Jones film? He’s got the look down. Pat.
This is just a basic henley, but I couldn’t not include this picture. I was never a Dawson fan (Pacey Witter 4 LIFE!) but I’m kinda crushing on grown-up James. It didn’t help that he chopped off that floppy bleached Dawson ‘do.
The other main piece of man candy this week was Chloe’s Dad, Scott, who we first see in spandex biker gear:
Not gonna lie. I don’t fault June at all for flirting with him.
Buut, the next time we see him, he’s wearing… well… see for yourselves:
Yeah, that’s a sweatshirt inside of what looks like a felt blazer. And suddenly, Chloe’s Dad or no, June has grounds to break up with him ASAP.
Oh, June. Sweet, idealistic June. Her outfits this week were definitely sweet, starting with this laidback red tee:
And her hair? That’s some Pretty Little Liars level magic wavy hair. How bad can her life be, really, with hair this perfect?
Her Lululemon-style biking gear is absolutely adorable, although I wouldn’t personally flaunt that much cleavage while biking.
And I need to know where she got that helmet, thx. Probably at the same place she got that pretty laptop skin from last week.
Seriously, whose hair looks like this after biking, going to a party, and hanging out all night with a DILF? I mean, there’s no frizz, her curls are perfectly shaped… the small town she came from is surely Rosewood, right?
This housecoat is adorbs. The flower detail gives it just enough of a sweet girlie twist.
She also carefully coordinates a yellow cardigan with her green work apron:
See how the yellow picks up the yellow in her apron’s logo? If she added yellow nailpolish, she could give Peggy from Mad Men a run for Matchy-Matchy Queen.
This is a good shot to contrast June and Chloe’s styles. June’s classic black trench is sweet with her red purse and brown booties. Chloe opts for violet platform heels and skinny jeans with her Tres Cool sweater.June is more cautious and conservative, whereas Chloe’s clothes perfectly capture that she’s a girl who doesn’t give a damn. Who’d have thought those shoes would go with that sweater? But on Chloe, it works.
June has the best facial expressions, seriously. I love this ruffled top – in this outfit, it’s impossible to forget June’s a small-town girl way out of her league. But she gets a round of golf snaps nonetheless for the way she sees through Chloe’s shizz.
I bet by the end of this season, June will be a force to be reckoned with, just like her b****y roommate.
