Lady Sings the Blues

How nice of Serena to lend Theresa one of her 9,000 cobalt blue dresses for her baby-retrieving trip to Italy!

Is Salem really some kind of clothes-sharing commune? At least she isn’t wearing a burgundy button-down belted at the waist, I suppose. And I know that when I have a sleepless night in a foreign country, terrified that the local authorities won’t allow me to take my kidnapped infant home with me, I always make the time for a side ponytail.

(Side note: my mother threw a baby shower for my sister-in-law last weekend, and when my mom emerged for the party, she was wearing a dress in that exact same shade of blue! She looked wonderful, but I almost screamed at the sight of it. If her gift for the mother-to-be had been elephant-related…)

Fashion follies aside, this Italy caper has been surprisingly great. Smart choice to have Kristen’s “final” (come on, she’s only dead until they need her to pop up again) showdown be against Marlena. And if James E. Reilly were writing the show, you can bet Marlena would’ve become Days‘ answer to Amanda Knox, detained and railroaded by Italian authorities in the midst of all sorts of shenanigans.

One more fashion-related note from this week:

How nice that Nicole hasn’t yet run out of hideous prostitute garb. Will someone please help this poor woman?!

    Theresa would NEVER wear an belted oversize burgandy TBD uniform but, Melanie certainly would. 😄

    I’m still smh about Marlena presuming Paul would be in Italy; Marlena knew Paul went home to his family in San Fran there have been convos about it was Marlena’s brain on holiday? I real there was a mix up when Will told Marlena Paul’s address was on Victor’s desk; Victor already took Paul’s San Fran address to Sonny at TBD by the time Marlena go there to screen shot the adress with her trusty Galaxy. Well needless to say, much like the “good old Days” it’s refreshing to see ‘worlds’ collide and more of them involved in adventures together although this adventure was in a redecorated Dimera living room with a painted background of the Appennine Moutains and forest outside the window.

    Will disgusts me even more now he seemed so nonchalant about sending his Grandma went 7000 in the wrong direction to help him. Also, Will’s reaction to Justin having an affair as well as Lucas and Adrienne having an affair was “does your Dad feel as bad as I do?” What?! That’s Will’s only reaction? I thought it was pretty silly how Justin showed up at Paul’s park/back yard which looks like all the parkette sets with added bonsai trees. We have yet another parent involving themselves in their adult children’s marriages/love life (as if there wasn’t enough of that already). Justin WAS in Dubai a year but, he’s in no hurry to see his family as he makes an unexplained stop in Hong Kong and then stops to see Paul in San Fran. *sheesh* I guess the Narita’s must have a butler like Harold…

      The whole thing about Marlena thinking Paul and John were in Italy doesn’t make any sense to me. We all knew Paul was going back to San Francisco, he indicated that to everyone, so why would he be near Rome? I mean obviously the whole point was so Marlena would see Kristen, but they could have done it in a much better way.

      • mykleraus Says:

        It was so sloppily handled. They could’ve at least had her ask Victor for the address and have her tell her, annoyed, “It’s on the desk” before walking out, not realizing he’d given her the incorrect address. Who walks into someone’s house, sees an address written down, and automatically assumes it’s THE ONE you need?!

      • Dylan Says:

        Too bad about Nicole’s dress.. How many leopard prints does this woman have? These days I want to puke any time I see a leopard print. Remember that one time when Hope (!) wore one blouse with the same pattern?

      • mykleraus Says:

        Marlena and Maggie have worn similar prints, too! It can work as an accent, but it tips into trashy REALLY fast, and a mini-dress certainly doesn’t help matters.

      • Andie Says:

        I suppose leopard has been a theme…I think Nicole’s dress meshes well with her character as an ex-porn star desperately chasing after a judgemental, emotionally unavailable d-bag like a cat in heat–come on Nikki 😒

      • mykleraus Says:

        They do seem to dress her (and Eve, to a certain extent) for the characters rather than just trying to look nice/glamorous. I appreciate the effort, but the stuff they pick for both of them is so often hideous.

      • otherweb1 Says:

        Judgmental, emotionally unavailable D-bag. HAHAHAHA. They should have that engraved under his name on his office desk plate.

  2. otherweb1 Says:

    The only thing that could have been more hideous than Nicole’s dress was her nailpolish. Because sky blue is the obvious polish color of choice to match leopard print??????

  3. otherweb1 Says:

    OK, so the one time EVER that Theresa is not dressed like a slut just happens to be the moment she takes her baby home with her? I mean, both hair and dress was so matronly! The whole outfit was about as bad as any of the poorly written stating-the-obvious dialogue we’ve seen lately.

    • mykleraus Says:

      That definitely felt calculated to be like, “Oh, I’m a good mother!” Which I guess was smart of Theresa, knowing the authorities might be biased against her.
