Episode Synopsis: The girls are in final preparations for Alison’s memorial and look back on some more of the happier times they shared, so you know what that means - Alison’s Flashback Camera Filter! History just looks prettier with overexposed lighting. Jason, Alison’s older brother, comes back to town looking pretty damn fine and reaches out to Jenna. Cue the usual dramz. In other news, Hanna discovers Ebay, Aria misses Ezra, Emily and Maya have another not-so-secret make out, and Spencer confronts Jenna is a Harrison Ford-esque manner. Basically it’s just another week for the PLLers.
I shouldn’t have a problem with what Hanna’s wearing, I really shouldn’t. I hate it. Maybe “hate” is too strong. I have an intense aversion to the colour palette that Hanna’s mixing here and it’s only exacerbated by that notebook. Or maybe it’s the lapels that could double as landing pad for small aircraft. Aria is fine but a little more subdued than I prefer.
Now this is classic Aria style: a t-shirt that implies travel and quirky accessories. If I was only able to give her one piece of advice it would be to actually fasten the suspenders. I know it seems tricky but if you follow me on this, I guarantee you’ll appreciate them in a whole new way.
“Who me? I’m just a doe-eyed slip of a girl who likes bows. I’m definitely NOT having an affair with my high school English teacher.” - I just noticed that Aria can be such a little tartlet when she wants to. A woman after my own heart...and stealing my thunder.
Great purse? Check. Bouncy, voluminous hair? Obviously. Sleeves made from the severed wings of a thousand butterflies? Well, maybe. Don’t get me wrong, I love the look and Aria makes it work but is it lace? Are they feathers? Does it come in men’s small?
Eat it. Just eat the pizza. You look like you weigh about the same as a unicorn’s birthday wish. Again, Aria, you’re wearing some mind bending pattern of questionable fabric and yet you still look awesome. EAT THE PIZZA. I hate when television characters leave food on their plates.
Sure, it was a memorial and not a funeral service, but this is just such a stark contrast from The Vampire Diaries funeral-ish thing I wrote about this week. My issue? Nothing to do with clothing but the fact that because Aria is the bookworm of the group, she has to give the most introspective, heartfelt speech. Lady, I was always the bookworm and realizing my drink needs to be replenished three times before last call is about as introspective as I get.
So, while Spencer, Emily and Aria are struggling to carry a solid steel birdbath in an enormous crate into the Hastings’ house, Hanna is just chilling on the chaise in purple satin. Hmm...yeah, seems about right.
Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love-Hewitt have some serious competition in the Marins. I would buy them so many drinks - and it’s not weird to say that about Hanna because the actress, Ashley Benson, is 21. Don’t judge me.
Girl, I’d be making that face too if I bought a L.A.M.B. purse (or any purse for that matter). Other than poor fashion history, Hanna looks superb right here. Gold and white are always a little too Barbra Streisand meets J-Lo for me but I believe it in this shot.
There’s a lot of Grecian overtones in Hanna’s wardrobe which I would much rather see on Spencer. What do you call this colour? Melon? Coral? Peach? Actually, who cares, just never buy anything in it ever again. The short-shorts can stay.
Remember that girl from high school who always dressed just two shades over the line everyday? As in, she had an awesome outfit and then, just before she left the house, she added a scarf or hat or whatever to make herself “fashionable”? She’s back.
Aww, what a nice family shot. Pretty, fashionable girls who are super best friends for life. Wow, I would have hated these broads in high school.
