This week in #23, June proves her Gen-Y resourcefulness by coming up with a creative, DIY way to help pay her half of the rent. Chloe decides to help and...well, we know by now what happens when Chloe decides to help with things, right? Um, yeah. June also gets in touch with her Korean roots (or was that Christian?). Meanwhile, James decides to become a...double-threat by starting his own line of jeans; jeans that are so snug I am pretty sure half his sperm may now be dead. Cheeks in a beek, indeed! Also? We are starting to learn more and more about the supporting characters (Robin, Luther, Eli, Mark) and they are even weirder than originally thought, yet also more normal. Fake people are funny that way, huh?
June decides to start making jam and selling it to cover her half of the rent. Good idea June, however it looks like you live in a $3,000 a month apartment. Methinks you will need to sell A LOT of jam to make it worth your while. Still, you gotta admire the girl's spunk. I wouldn't say I admire her outfit though:
Yeah, it's a little sad isn't, June? Ok, so yellow is my fav colour and I do love me a stripe but this is just a little boring. Not a bad sweater, but not great either. Although, I guess Junebug can be forgiven a bit for having a bit of a sorry wardrobe since she makes like minimum wage and she did just get home from slinging espresso and foam. We can't all escort world dictators and run rent scams for a living!
Just as I was falling asleep, Chloe swooped in with her "Oh-So-Chloe" ensemble of a striped body-con dress, motorcycle jacket, envelope clutch and sunglasses:
She always comes in the apartment so dramatically, like she had the most exhuastingly fabulous day ever. I love it! The outfit is all black, but really, what's more chic than all black? And it's slimming - not that Chloe needs that, the Amazon.
And a motorcycle jacket always looks chic too. The whole effect is very Downtown Ladies Who Lunch.
After swooping in like a black swan, Chloe decides to "jam" with June (see what I did there?) in a super-cheesy, super-awesome montage of kitchen shenanigans!
Cute pose, but again with the boring clothes! I will go a little easy on you because you are making jam and I imagine that is messy, but Chloe you are wearing a white top! How is THAT practical for jam-making? June, I like this colour on you so you get one point for that, but there will be no points for the lack of pizzazz here.
Now this is more like it! A lovely coral (or is it salmon?) on June and a vibrant teal on Chloe, paired with a fun floral print. I don't even care that the floral print is on an apron - at least there's finally some colour up in hurr.
But yeesh, June has no idea what's coming, poor thing (I'm speaking of the projectile strawberry, of course, but also the fetish site that Chloe ends up making by filming them making jam and splicing the footage to make it all hot).
Anyway, the splash of colour above recedes quickly and Chloe is in black again for pretty much the whole rest of the episode. Like here:
Aaaaaand here (although I must say this is a FAB coat):
See, another moto jacket! Chic for both sexes! You do look chic most of the time C, but why the aversion to colour?
Just look at Robin and Luther here:
Yes, they are a little weird (ok, Robin is A LOT weird) but at least they have a little fun with their wardrobes.
Chloe DOES inch a little bit back into colourful territory at James' party, in a dress (body-con, duh) with a burgundy purple mixed print:
It fits her like a glove and I like the simple belt, spangly earrings and chain-strap bag. And apparently June cut up and cinched her lime green t-shirt from before, Maria Von Trapp-style, and made a top/dress out of it! Again, resourceful - and I like the colour - but you are at a party at the Beek residence. Shouldn't you step it up a little?! You never know when Pacey might show up! (Although, who am I kidding - Diane K would be on his arm and she would show all y'all b****es up in the fashion department I'm sure).
June does redeem herself in the colour department with this nice blue cardigan and floral shirt. "Nice" is the operative word though. We've not yet verged into "awesome" territory. And "the girls" look a little stifled in there:
"Look, I'm going to dress like those mannequins in the Old Navy ads if I want to, and there's nothing you can do to stop me!"
Anyway, it seems like everyone's trying to make money this week, which means WE get hilariously awesome pictures like this:
21st Century female version of Twins, perhaps? Lets make this happen, people!
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go find this Ellen chick on Twitter - apparently she's hilarious.
