Part 1 of 2 - Girl, I Must Warn You
It has been far too long since I’ve been to Rosewood. Thankfully, these girls never really change; they just amplify their neuroses. With A back and cattier than ever, our girls have been on their toes more than Channing Tatum in “Magic Mike”. Emily back on the wagon, seems to have reverted back into the quiet, shy liar who dependable and stuff. Boring. But, with Paige in the picture again and itching for some alone with Emily, the dramz can’t be far behind. Meanwhile, Aria is doing her best Sydney Bristow impression by “infiltrating” Jenna’s party (even though she was invited) and “sneaking” into a photographer’s studio (even though she would have been invited into the office on Monday). Nice work, girl - maybe just stick to emasculating your boyfriend? Speaking of boyfriends, Hanna doesn’t have one anymore so she... I can’t even say it... wore sweatpants. UGHx1266, you guys. Sweatpants? This calls for an intersweation because no one ever does that when they’re sad, right? Oh, in other news, Spencer is still working her way to having a heart attack or stroke before age 20 and Jenna’s ready to party cuz’ the bitch can see.
Season Three and we’re still working within the confines of the characters. At least they all seem to have upped their game. Yeah, Spencer is still working her New England prep look with a cardigan/shirt combo, but the polka dots are nice distraction. Pattern makes simple pieces pop, y’all. Aria’s oddly cut sweater is just not working for me. It looks too low cut to be comfortable and the black & white stripes are giving me some serious flashbacks to “Beetlejuice”. Emily continues to shop at Bag, Bland & Beyond which seems par for the course.
Now this is a nice change for Spencer. It’s beachy, summery and pretty devoid of personality. What’s that old saying - “clothes make the man”? In all honesty, it’s a great outfit and totally works for semi-formal or casual wear. Emily’s hiding behind her binder so I’ll ruin the surprise: she’s wearing a black dress. Killer bracelets, though.
Simple, loose fitting clothing? Hair pulled back into a simple pony? Crunchy hippie tendencies? Oh yeah, you were born to be a barista, girlfriend.
Now, I haven’t done much serving in my life, but I’m pretty sure that elaborate serving tray would be an absurd request for a party. It has a bloody topiary... I mean, that’s not good decorating, that’s just being irresponsible.
Remember Spencer’s adorable beach number from above? Well, check out the embellishments on the collar. Oh my stars and garters, that’s just precious.
I’m not really sure I’m into this pattern. Maybe it’s the frenetic pace, but it’s just turning me off. What did y’all think?
BURN FELICITY’S VILE SWEATPANTS!
The whole “I need everything to have pyramid studs” trend is not my scene, but I had to admit that Hanna’s purse was working it out in this scene. I wouldn’t tangle with this girl.
Remember when Kate Moss was everything to everything? Well, that’s what I’m seeing Hanna channel right now. Her top is super cute, and a nice throwback to wallpaper at sun resorts in the early 90s.
Three things about this outfit up close:
- The fact that it’s backless and she wore a hot pink tank underneath
- Those nails, girl.
- That ring, honey.
“But where’s Aria?”, you say? Oh, she’s right her slaying the competition with a gorgeous pink dress. Perfectly accessorized by silver bracelets with a similar texture to the dress embellishment, Aria took this Stepford Style to church. And to be real, there’s a lot happening here. She’s mixing fabrics and textures and other baubles, but it all works. I blame her illustrious hair.
Damn, even during the party she’s killing it. Heavy, industrial pieces tamed by feminine fabrics seems to be her M.O. this season. Which is fine because I was getting mighty tired of the feathers. Plus, when you’re boyfriend is Ezra Fitz who can wear a navy cardigan 50 different ways, you’re pretty set.
