Seven episodes into the first season, I realize that Melrose Place isn’t the show I remember.

I also realize that, as the wheel of fashion turns, there will come a time when crotch-snap bodysuits will roll back into style. Not the ugly 70’s leotards, because those are already back. American Apparel’s got ’em, but I prefer the jazzy versions down at Leotard of the Month. No, no, this is the (even more) sinister and hideous evolution of the leotard–accompanied by high-waisted jeans and an oversized belt. Vest optional.

See what I mean within the first few seconds. Red and white stripes. Can’t miss it.

It’s only a matter of time until Sunset Junction is crawling with Fly Girls. Wish I’d kept my babydoll dresses.
