Carrie wore mostly the same things this week, but that won’t stop me!
First, Ashley already commented on this but what the actual hell @ Claire Danes’ abs???? I don’t have anything else to say except “how?” I guess I find it really comical that Carrie… MATHISON… has the female equivalent of washboard abs?
Carrie doesn’t have time for a shower and can’t even change her shirt so it’s back to the same clothes she’s worn the last two episodes. Why is this shirt so comically large? The placket is likely meant to go to her breastbone but here it’s basically at her navel. WHY??!?!?? I hate this. F.
Thankfully she covers up the comically large placket when she takes a ~ride~ to Yevgeny’s. Carrie wears a lot of sexually frustrated looks in this scene and this nice lil’ scarf. Carrie should wear more neck scarves because she looks great in this one. Sometimes I just stop myself, like, wow, Carrie can tie a scarf really nicely and then I just sit with that fact for a while.
Look at these ankle boots! I really have to admire the skinniness of these pants because, while I love to whine about Carrie’s sartorial choices, there was a time when the thought of Carrie in a skinny pant was actually unimaginable. When set photos from Berlin first surfaced in 2015 it was an actual shock to see her in a semi-skinny pant. Now look! We’ve come a long way, baby! I am obsessed with Carrie’s black socks here. This is such a fucking specific choice to me and I know it’s like, duh, what other color would she wear and you’re RIGHT but still….
A few people have commented on Carrie having a Hamilton watch, which is a brand I’d never heard of, despite being a lover of wristwatches (I guess just superficially?). Anyway, these things are really expensive! This is a new watch for Carrie, as I noted two weeks ago.
I can’t find this exact model on the Hamilton website, but it looks very similar to this one, except with a black leather band.
It’s called the JAZZMASTER for crying out loud! Too perfect. £765 is about $880 for all you American dollar-spending people. Do we believe that Carrie would spend $880 on a wristwatch? No! Then again, Carrie doesn’t really have hobbies so maybe she just spends all her leftover money on wristwatches and a steady rotation of leather and suede jackets. The show also established and then promptly forgot about the mountain of credit card debt Carrie found herself in (like $30k???) so we already know she’s “not great with money.”
Carrie decides to change for her
planned escape with Yevgeny commercial flight. I know we’ve seen that cropped black suede jacket before this season, and I think the army green collared blouse (which I hope is collarless just for nostalgia reasons) is a repeat. The point is I’m too lazy to confirm any of this, but I don’t hate any of it. It’s all very fine. She’s wearing a $900 wristwatch so what does she care?
One of you astutely pointed out that, for no discernible reason, Carrie decided to change her earrings as well as her outfit. I’m pretty sure these are new – round with a little divot in them? Anyway I like them. I was growing very tired of the cat food earrings. I give her a solid B for effort considering she had to get her shit together and plan a legendaric escape with Yevgeny in half an hour. We stan an efficient woman!
IN CONCLUSION: JAZZMASTER
