Aired: 1990

This episode is definitely Melanie’s best moment. LOL, jk. So as usual, she’s dressed for the 5th grade sock hop, with scarves in her hair and the usual 50s-inspired ensembles. For the slumber party, she wears PJs of pink stripes. And then she just destroys Kathleen’s life with one sentence. And giggles about it. Not one of these girls was a cool pothead. Except Diana.

First, Melanie wears a kinda 50s? short sleeved cardi thing that’s brown with lace on it. It’s pretty cute, but then she throws on this brightly colored, practically tie-dye headscarf thing that doesn’t really match. But then, I’m not very adventurous. And we wrap it up with a grey fuzzy sweater and a pink scarf around her half-side-ponytail.

Melanie wears a peachy shirt, a patterned sweater cardi, and a colorful headband. Her hair is thick as hell. I really like it long.

Melanie in jeans? This is weird!! Um okay, so here is Melanie in jeans, a white sweater, and a headband. I can’t stop staring at this enigma. Next, she’s back to her old self, wearing green on green.

DH S1E8: Little White Lies
Aired: 1989

Melanie shamelessly dresses like a full on 1950’s woman. It’s not even subtle. It’s just BAM in your face let’s go to the sock hop. Honestly those scarf-tied side ponytails kind of get on my nerves, but I’m trying to appreciate. She definitely delivers variety to DH. First, we have a light blue cardi, pearls, a freakin hot pink hair scarf, and a floral skirt. Then we do see her wearing a floral top from junior high. Then for the party, Melanie gets a little wild, ditching the cardis and exposing her arms. And finally, just a green patterned shirt, a blue pencil skirt, and a mad hangover. (It always annoyed me how she had to make a point “I am never drinking again, I felt SO BAD on Saturday.” Like, yeah, yeah, writers, we get it, drinking is bad.)

I’m not sure what to say about this orange dress. I’m not sure if I love it or hate it. I guess it’s really not that bad… so maybe I love it. Melanie is staying true to this 50s vibe still. I’ve gotta say, the dress is pretty bold for a regular old day at school. But maybe not in the 80s. And then, Melanie joins the Have Nots in the streets for a movie night. It feels like we don’t ever get to go out into the city with the kids. I personally am completely fascinated by it because I’ve never lived in a city, and scenes like this just trip me out. Melanie wears a grey sweater and a floral skirt, and I’m kinda diggin this outfit; it’s not too annoying. Finally, she is still living in this retro fantasy land in this blue cardi and pink pedal pushers.

Melanie just looks like some sort of 1950s housewife in these muted colored dresses and cardigans. Complete with that side half ponytail.

Melanie’s 50s-inspired style is in full swing. I mean, this style kind of gets on my nerves. But that’s just my personal opinion. Here’s an assortment of dresses, cardigans, and side-half-ponys.
