To sort of expand on what you said, PWS - I think Pam's wardrobe is just so incredibly perfect for her character. I've spent the last 20 years of my life as an office slave and I've known many Pams - attractive, smart young women who are just marking time at their day jobs, waiting for something to happen to them. The lack of effort in dress and hairstyle reflects how they feel about their jobs (oh my, sounds like all this hits home for me, eh? ). I've always thought the best all-around character was Pam.
