Uh, Wardrobe? We Have A Problem.
And that problem's name is Jessica Brennan (yes, that's still her name and you can't make me stop using it!).
It's... I don't really even know what to say about it. It's not that it's so awful, and I won't sit here and pretend to know anything about current-day fashion. But I do know a thing or two about character, and this really makes no sense on an insanely wealthy mother in her thirties, does it?
I really don't get it.
And it's not like this is a one-day aberration. This is Jessica's look now.
Okay, most days. Sometimes we get the cropped red hot pants for seemingly weeks on end.
I'm just not sure what she's going for here. I guess it's supposed to be part of the integration? Like the semi-Tessification of Jessica to better suit her for a (gag) pairing with Ford or something?
And really, the age-appropriateness is really not the issue. I'm not really one to talk as I'm pretty sure nothing I do would be deemed age-appropriate by whatever council sits and decides on such things. It's that I'm so hung up on trying to figure out what these outfits are all about because I really have no idea who this character is anymore. Her alters all have personalities, but what about Jessica herself? She's not the sweet, sugary princess anymore. She's not the overly wholesome do-gooder. She's sort of mad and sort of bitter and sort of cynical but sometimes sweet and sometimes corny and... she's just kind of whatever serves the function of a scene and nothing else. What kind of mother is she? I don't know. Is she still writing for The Banner? I don't know. If she did, what would she be writing about? I don't know. What does she think about her father's house arrest? I don't know. Does her history with Ford really not skeeve her out at all anymore? I don't know. Did she ever do any digging to find out what happened while her alters were out and she married Cutter and turned into a completely new alter? I don't know. Could she please get a haircut and bring her sister Natalie and her Uncle Todd with her? I don't know!
All I really know is that she thinks her Aunt Tina is a completely insane person who rings doorbells with her mind and invents young women who claim to be dead people with amnesia. I mean, y'all, after several minutes of discussion about it, Jess totally walked the ten feet to the door and there was no one there! So obviously Tina was just having some sort of episode in which she pretends dead women who she's never met or heard of have come by to find out if they lived there. Seriously, Jess just wrote the whole incident off as something that "got into [her] Aunt Tina."
On the other hand? Y'all just don't even know how warm and fuzzy it makes me feel to just be casually mentioning Tina in a post about a pretty low-key Tuesday episode. You know, just like it's no biggie.
