Best Dressed: The Pavao Sisters
With every comment, there was a humorous argument. They interrupted each other various times during the interview, and it was quite entertaining. I quickly noted just how close these sisters were.
Carla Pavao, the “much, much older” sister, moved out of the house when Judy was just starting to pick out her own outfits, so they never shared clothes. And although they now live together, they still don’t. “Judy is a terrible sharer,” Carla said.
“We work together, we live together, so to look alike is just too much. We can’t do everything together. We already have similar haircuts! I want to have individuality. I share a lot of aspects of my life with her, so the clothes have to be my dividing line.”
Because of the age difference, copying one another was not an option. The sisters were very much their own characters. “Like she [Carla] said, she’s much, much older.”
“Take it easy,” Carla interrupted.
The sisters are very open to each other’s opinions. “We’re very honest,” said Judy. “I value what she says. I wouldn’t ask her if I didn’t, and I trust her. She’s not somebody who’s trying to blow my head up; she’s gonna tell me the truth.”
“Depends on what it is, if she’s [Judy] telling me something looks bad on me, yes.”
The only thing Carla won’t wear from Judy’s closet are “cropped shirts that are really wide. I don’t wear those.” But for the most part, the sisters do have very similar taste.
“I try to buy things that are original, more than mass market, and I try to buy things that I only really like.”
Shopping together can become a game of Survivor when one finds something the other likes. “I hate going shopping with her [Judy] because what if she finds the same thing?”
“Why do you ask me to go shopping?” Judy responded.
“I like to go shopping with you, but when I’m in the store and I’m like ‘darn, she found that before I did.’”
All the arguments were lighthearted, and the sisters do, in fact, appreciate each other’s company. “You need to have a friend that you shop with, that will tell you like it is, and she [Carla] will.”
