Sometimes I think that shows get symbolic of things. Cleaning out a closet isn’t just about cleaning out a closet, it’s symbolic of cleaning out your life. Changing things. Making things better.
And this episode of Dollface feels symbolic.
It’s the annual Madison Mandatory Clean Out. She has everyone cleaning out their closet once a year.
Madison tries to build them up, telling them that they need to focus on the future, turning 30. Jules doesn’t want to be reminded of turning 30. It seems as though it is something that scares her, versus making her okay with what is.
Aging isn’t a bad thing, people of the world. Sure, gravity will make things head south and sag, but whatever. There are a lot of things that are positive about aging. Don’t ask me for them now, it’s early and I can’t think. But I assure you they are there.
Stella’s cleaning out her clothes, getting rid of more of her “sexier” clothing. After all, she’s not seeing a lot of clubs these days as she’s’ with Liv and they’re staying home with Bruno.
One thing that I love about Madison is that she tries to be a therapist for all of her friends and though that can be annoying, it shows that she cares. Stella doesn’t like it and she’s not afraid to tell her that, but hey, Madison cares.
This whole time that this is going on, Izzy has arrived. She’s facetiming with Liam, who was sweet enough to call and ask if she needed her charger. He was going to bring it back of she did.
One thing that I feel sorry for Izzy about is she doesn’t realize her greatness. She doesn’t see that she’s good enough for Liam and always is waiting for the other shoe to drop. When Liam says that he doesn’t know if they’ll be going to Big Bear, cause his friend booked the wrong place and he’s not sure about plus ones, she spirals to her friends and thinks that he’s breaking up with her.
They try to tell her that she’s over reacting and make her see just that. But Izzy’s anxiety is making her spiral and it’s not a good thing. She needs constant reassurance which is a lot for anyone to take on. But Izzy’s friends are willing to take that on.
One has to love a good Wellness Summit. Sure, the only one that I hear of lately are POOSH’s but apparently WOOM is part of one, and Jules is running it. Izzy and Jules are off to deal with the day.
But when they get there, they run into an old foe. Allison is there and has taken over the booth that was assigned to WOOM. Allison isn’t willing to give up the booth, something about an outlet. It’s a stupid reason, but Jules doesn’t want to fight.
Instead she’s allowed them to intimidate her into a booth into the corner that smells like trash.
This show is kinda weird sometimes because you’re like rooting for someone and you see their strength and then in the next breathe, you’re wondering why you’re rooting for them because they seem to never grow.
Jules is one that you go back and forth with. Sometimes she’s like this badass and the next moment she’s backing down. Then again, I think that backing down isn’t a bad thing, because you have to pick and choose your fights.
Jules makes the booth amazing, people listening to everything. But when Allison gets angry, Jules lets her get in her head. Izzy lets her get in her head. And that’s worse to me that backing down from a fight. You don’t let other people define who you are.
It’s just not something that any of us should do.
TIME TO MAKE TIME
Though I would have a hard time giving up a lot of free designer clothing, this isn’t about me and so one has to admire Jules actually actualizing. She reminds Madison that she said just that morning that they need to make space for what comes next and that she can’t just replace millionaire Colin with billionaire Colin. It’s not possible, even more than it is possible for her to be Celeste.
Izzy heads over to Liams in order to spend the night, but has gathered the courage to talk to him about how she is feeling. He’s in the bathroom, and she tells him that she knows that he lied to her and doesn’t want her to come to Big Bear.
I feel for Izzy. I know what it is like to be insecure and to feel not good enough. And it breaks my heart that Izzy doesn’t feel good enough. Even when he tells her that he booked a cabin right down the street to make sure she was there. And that they were together.
Liam tries to leave the bathroom, but she keeps him in there. She says that when she’s with him she feels sick. She tells him that she’s terrified that she is messing things up and feels completely unworthy. He wants to come out and talk to her so that he can fix it.
But you have to admire Izzy, because she tells him this isn’t for you to fix. He asks if she wants to break up and she realizes that she does. That can’t be easy for her, but I am proud of her for putting herself first and realizing that she deserves to find strength in herself and find that she’s worth it.
We all deserve that.
Madison and Jules are finding out the same thing. They’re on a double date and it’s going well, but they decide to call it a night and head home.
Madison and Jules are the best of friends. The two of them have an honesty that they don’t have with anyone else. And It’s important, because it drives both of them to be better people. And if drives both of them to focus more.
Their double date is a good but what made it great is the two of them see that it is a sign that they need to live and not just exist. They need to stop with the one days and do the things that tehy always dreamed of.
They need to stop putting it off.
And personally, I can’t wait for them to get there.
- Can’t hate on Jules for loving Celestes designer clothes. Who wouldn’t love free clothes?
- Stella towering over Madison – damn she tall.
- Allison truly is the worlds oldest mean girl.
- The meditation thing – totally cool. I felt calm watching it.
- Stella’s sex night getting cancelled cause Bruno’s Dad drops him off. I feel bad, but I also wonder if there is a part of her that is changing.
- Madison’s handsome billionaire – I really would love for her to see him again. Even if he looks like Colin.
- Anyone else curious to know what number seven on Stella’s list was?
- The linguistics lesson is amazing
- BFECAE (Best friend eye contact American English) 4ever
- Jules being vulnerable with Fender – I stand
- I’m afraid that Stella isn’t gonna be able to deal with a calmer life
