Trademark attire from the early years

Recommended Posts

Pippa's long and horribly unfashionable dresses/skirts become a trademark of her character. IIRC there is even a storyine where she takes up riding a bike and falls off because one of those dreadful skirts gets caught in the bike's gears.

I think it might have been Shane Parrish who took the mick out of Pippa in shorts. Yes Sally did wear some funny outfits. There was a red and white striped all in one (or onesie as they are called these days).

It was odd, when Pippa started working at the school, she suddenly got quite tasteful with navy suit jackets etc... I think it was just at home she just didn't see the need to make an effort, and I think it was very in character, the Mum that was always up to her eyes in laundry, baking, advice giving, of course she didn't have time to dress up, unless of course she had to.

^Haha and even when she did get dressed up it looked like she was wearing nightwear (Angel and Shane's wedding).

I'm glad they didn't change her to make her more 'fashionable'.

Not to mention her own wedding dressing dress when she married Michael (which Debra said in 2007 she hated!).

Yes even though her clothes were horrible, they fitted the character and I'm glad they didn't make her fashionable.

It is funny looking back at the early years now, when ALL the characters are now unfashionable, trying to tell the difference between characters who dress "normally" and those who don't. For example Marilyn's current storyline worrying about the way she dresses being weird, it is not that noticable now because all the characters are wearing out-of-fashion clothes. Whereas at the time she stood out like a sore thumb.

not sure how old Pippa was in the 60s though. Tom was 40 in 1988 and Pippa was about four years younger would you say? So I guess she would have been a teenager.
