Thank you for not seeing it as disrespectful because that was not my intent. To me, it is just remarkable that daytime shows in the 1990s thought nothing of styling the wife of a small town doctor in Italian silks with an asymmetrical hair cut. As you said, anyone with money could buy those outfits, but the sophisticated styling was what stood out to me. My amusement was derived from the idea that they valued urbane glamour over authenticity of the setting, but who could blame them, given their access to such high end designer clothes, jewels, and stylists. And it is stark contrast to the costumes of the later years of the show.
