Days of our Lives: Fashion Column!
After a long weekend, most of you just want to sit back and relax, while reading Soaps.com news! I get it. That’s why I waited until today to post my newest wardrobe column. Feel free to get yourself a coffee [with Bailey’s of course] and find out if I’ve answered your burning fashion questions!
Sharon S asks, “Where can I buy the beige leather jacket that Kristin Alfonso had on, it was either the Monday 5/5 or Tuesday 5/6 episodes?”
I didn’t get a shot of this jacket and when I asked my contacts, they said, “Got us there. Might have been a personal item.” Sorry, Sharon. If you scour the leather shops, you may find something suitable and similar.
Annmarie V asks, ” Do you know who makes the floral dress that Sami was wearing on Thursday, May 8th? Thank you!” And, Donna W says, ” Love, love, love the wardrobe column! Trying to find the dress Sami wore on May 9th when she kissed EJ!”
Wow, they didn’t expect that people would be asking about this floral piece. It was actually from Forever 21!! I thought she looked gorgeous in it! I’m happy that you love the column, Donna! Good to hear feedback of any sort. Course, I’m partial to the positive!!
Debbie S and a few others asked, “This week (May 5) on Days the episode where John and Sami could not sleep. Sami had on a cute pajama set. Any idea where it is from?”
Yes, Debbie! Those pink PJs were designed by Natori and from Neiman Marcus!
Kathy G asks, “Hi Christine… Just wondering… where can I find a top like the one worn by Lexie (red with smocking/pleats) in the May 9th episode. She had it on when she was talking to Dr. Dan.”
She looks great in red, that Lexi. Too bad she has to cover most of her cute outfits up with that white lab coat. You can find that piece, by C. Kiko, at Nordstrom!
Esmeralda V asks, ” Hi as long as I can remember there are these earrings Hope wears, I’ve also seen Sammie wear them before… but most recently on Friday May 9th when hope walks in to the Police Department and gets assigned the investigation of Ava’s doctors murder she has them on again… I can never make out what the shape is… but if you can please let me know where to find them… thank you in advance for your help.”
Hi Es, (can I call you Es?!) you may have guessed…. Those hoops come from Kristian Alfonso’s site, ‘Hope Faith Miracles’! They’re quite chic on her. What am I saying, anything’s chic on Kristian! Look for them on her site Hope Faith Miracles.
Karen B asks, “Hi. Can you tell me who made the purple shirt/top that Sami wore on May 2, 2008 to the immigration hearing at the police station with EJ, Marlena and John? I LOVED it and been searching on the web for the answer but can’t find it. THANKS!! :-)”
I dig the smilie, Karen! Good taste. That was a personal fave of my little friend at DAYS and it comes from Bebe! Dang, and I was in there a few weeks ago. I didn’t see it.
Kathy W asks, “Hi! I am loving the cute tank shirt that Chelsea has been wearing the past few episodes May 8th and May 9th, 2008. Any information on where she purchased this top would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help!”
Hi Kathy, that piece was from Free People at Bloomingdales. Ah Bloomies. Have fun shopping.
Dana V asks, “Christine, on Friday, May 9th Sami and Hope had on outfits that I absolutely loved. Where can the black, floral print dress that Sami had on and the plaid jacket with mauve trim and matching top that Hope wore be purchased? Thanks for your help and keep up the good work, Dana”
Thanks Dana. I feel really bad, actually, because during the Emmy hype, I was so horrendously busy (but loving it) and I didn’t get to write up my column until now. I’m so sorry that you and everyone else had to wait such a long time for an answer to their questions. Between the wardrobe being busy for Emmys and me, it took some time to get these answers. At any rate, Sami’s dress, as stated above, was from Forever 21 and Hope’s jacket was from DKNY. I absolutely died when I saw that jacket. I snapped a few photos of her wearing it because I knew I wouldn’t be alone. I’m gazing at it now, lovingly!! My eyes are averted to a photo nearby in the same date on my computer of Daniel Jonas in a towel. I have to shake my head and wakey wakes… uh, anyway, you can purchase DKNY (Donna Karan New York) items, including that jacket right online at Donna Karan (I’m not going there… but you can check the site out for locations. I know you can find some of her stuff at The Bay.
Keli C asks, “Hi Christine! There is an episode during the week of 5/5/2008 when Sammy was wearing a 2 pc. white pajama set that had English Roses on them. She was having a talk with John at the mansion. It was beautiful. Do you know what store they are from? Keli C”
Hi Keli C. See, I found her whole outfit and glasses deal to be very unattractive. Poor EJ… or Lucas… or EJ… Sorry – not my thing but I’m alone…. everyone and their sister would like this set! I’ll tell you where they’re from if you promise me never to wear these PJ’s under the sheets (if you have a partner – romance killers are usually comfy!) “Pinky swear?” And make sure this isn’t a Nicole pinky swear, either! I’m on to that! Ready? PJS are by Rachel Ashwell – you know, ‘Shabby Chic’?! I’m a fan of Shabby Chic, Keli and you’ve forced me to go to their website to find those. An hour later and a lighter pocket book and oh, yes. I didn’t find it, but check out This site and click on “Loungewear” and you may find it or something similar. If you’ve no luck, try going to google and typing in “Rachel Ashwell loungewear”.
Regan P asks, “I was wondering where I could purchase the necklace and the shirt that Hope was wearing on today’s (5/13/08) episode.”
Regan, that shirt was from Dari. Dari, you ask? It’s a little store on Ventura Blvd in Los Angeles and don’t quote me on this but I believe William Shatner’s daughter, Melanie runs it. The necklace, of course is from (say it with me) Hope Faith Miracles!
(The shirt – I wanted to add the details that Monti C so kindly reminded me of that made me know just where to look for this photo. “It came down mid-thigh, sort of a light brown with belled type sleeves, it had a hood and some sort of pattern (almost southwestern looking). I know she was wearing it in the scene where she and Kayla get back to her house from Kayla’s doctor apt. and also in the scene where she and Bo are down at the docks helping Steve and arresting one of Martino’s goons.”
I remembered it well from your description, Monti! Thanks.
Rose D and Kimberly B, and loads of other gals asked, "Sami from DOOL wore a tie dye workout jacket around May 15. Where can I get it or what brand is it?"
Hey Rose, she wore that at the gym and everyone loved it. It was a black and white hoodie. It's actually from American Budda and is from Nordstrom. Pretty fancy. I get my work out duds from Winners!
Kurt M asks, "I was wondering where the striped shirt Philip was wearing on May 12 in his interactions with Chloe can be purchased. Thanks for your help!"
Kurt, a guy! I love when guys ask these questions. I didn't notice the shirt as much as what was under the shirt, wink wink, nudge nudge… but I digress. The shirt was designed by Sy Devore It's on Ventura Blvd in Studio City. If you're not in California, try the website.
Donna B asks, "On the Days of Our Lives episode in which Sami and John had the middle-of-the-night talk and walk down memory lane, Sami (Alison Sweeny) was wearing eyeglasses. Who made the frames, and is there a style name or number? They really are lovely! Thanks!"
Eep, sorry Donna. Those were Sami's personal eyeglasses. She has two pair so far that we've seen her wear on the show from her own collection. Unique frames. May I just add that it's best to go with an honest friend to pick out eyeglasses? The purchase of eyeglasses should be determined by the shape of your face. I wouldn't want you to leave the house looking anything but gawgeous, my friend. *steps off my soap box* PS I liked the title of your email : Wardrobe Finder I feel like a warrior or something, now!!
BJ B asks, "I am looking for the blue dress that Stephanie wore on the show may 29/30. She looked fab in it. Thanks"
Hi BJ. That was from Black Halo. Never heard of it, so I checked it out. It's found online (Black Halo and if you check the site, you can scout a location close to you!
Lynne G asks, "Stephanie was wearing a sheer green blouse on the show 6/3/08 where can I find it?"
That green blouse was her colour and can be found at French Connection!
Sometimes I get generalized questions about where the costumer purchases items for individual actors and actresses. Kristen D asked me about Kayla's clothing on DAYS. My pal at DAYS tells me, "Our costumer, Richard Bloore, shops at a variety of stores for the latest fashions you see on DAYS." So, you see, they can come from anywhere. I'm really not much of a shopper, but I'd love to spend a few hours with Richard, shopping for the characters. (There's a blatant hint.)
Ginny B asks, "Could you please tell me where the wardrobe that Max wears is purchased? I am sure it is many different stores but even a list would be great."
You're right, Ginny, the clothes are from many different stores but there is no list, unfortunately. That's not the way they shop, but instead they shop with 'Max' in mind. If there is one shirt in specific that you like, I can probably direct you to where to find it. Otherwise, it's more of a style that they look for when scouring for 'Max clothes'.
Sharon D asks, "I would like to know where to buy Nicole's blue dress. She wore it today, May 12 and also last week. Many times I see things on the program that I love and think there should be a place or site that you can visit to see the name of the item and where it is sold."
Hi Sharon, you found it. Soaps.com is the place to find the name of the items worn on DAYS and where they're sold! The dress Nicole wore was a spaghetti strap dress, blue, and was made by Guess! Find the store at your local mall, or shop online at Guess!
Rebecca D asks, "I would like to know where to get the dress that Chloe ( Nadia Bjorlin) sported on Monday's episode with Philip 5/12. It was black and had a white band around it. It was STUNNING on her!! :)"
Rebecca, that dress that the wardrobe dept. had Chloe wearing on May 10/12 was another dress from Guess. Gotta love Guess! It was a cute party dress!
Suzanne W asks, "Hi, I LOVE the shirt that Sammy was wearing on the May 23rd episode (beige with black). I was wondering where I could find it?"
Hi Suzanne. That black and beige shirt Sami wore May 23 is from designer, Joie and was found at Neiman Marcus! I loved it, too!
Susan L and Sandy L ask, (two different emails) "I would like to know where you can buy the blouse had on in the show on June 5, 2008. It was beautiful and I would love to get one like it. It was white and had light blue and green in it. [Sandy calls it "Green and white 3/4 sleeve length peasant blouse". It was sheer and have a tank under it."
Chloe's white and blue blouse was designed by Polecti and was from Nordstrom. Susan, sorry - didn't get where the pendant came from that Nicole wore. When in doubt, I say, try Kristian Alfonso's site for it!! It could be that it was a personal piece. Usually if they don't know where it came from, that's what the reason is!
Please send in your own wardrobe questions by using the contact us link that you see to your left, under the navigation column. Please ensure you send as much details about the item as you can, and ensure you have the correct date for the wardrobe department, otherwise they may not be able to find it!
