First, Jimmy wears a red long sleeve, a windbreaker vest, baggy jeans, and white shoes. On his birthday, he wears a navy and grey sweater. I also threw in a picture of a picture of Jimmy in a blue jersey. He actually seems like a really good boyfriend. And finally, he gets un-broken-up-with in another dark sweater, with the tee underneath peeping out. Not much to write about in terms of individual pieces, but Jimmy’s overall silhouette is really cool imo – baggy and sporty. And as I’ve said before, I think anything baggy is already cool, lol.

Oh man, here we are! The episode where Emma suffers PMS and starts her period, woo-hoo! First, she’s actually sporting the criss-cross part in her hair, and wearing a shirt with a horse and clouds on it, and a big chunky watch. I mean, it’s really kind of sad to sit and analyze this outfit. This is the outfit of a sweet carefree child. She’s about to cross that threshold into raging PMS, pain in the boobs, back, head, abdomen, and managing difficult bloodflow for the next few decades. I know Paige’s message is “You’re still a kid, just with a mini-pad” but it’s still sad for a kid to have to do all these things. I’m more period-positive these days but when I was twelve, HELL NO, so I sympathize with Emma here. So yeah she’s PMSing, so Spike takes her shopping, and Emma gets this new turtleneck sweater of brown, green, and blue horizontal stripes. She wears it with a khaki miniskirt. And come to think of it, I think this is the first time we’ve seen her wear something so womanly. Regardless, it gets destroyed in a puddle of blood and she’s then forced to wear XXL gym shorts to deliver an oral report. But she reports to school the next day with grace and dignity in a tan jacket and black pants. Thanks for the advice, Paige.

New episode!! This is a great one. Emma becomes a woman and Ashley grows tired of Jimmy. First Ash wears, what is this? a duster sweater thing? with a matching blue top and khaki pants. I can practically feel the physical discomfort of wearing khakis as I look at this. She embarks on her school day with her old faithfuls too – the half-ponytail and the cross body bag. The next day, as her “I actually hate Jimmy” secret has become known to Toby, she genuinely is dressed suspiciously – like she’s hiding something. She wears a drab hoodie all zipped up to hide her actual outfit. And finally, for our final outfit, the deed has been done. Ashley dumped Jimmy’s ass. She wears a cowl-neck sweater (I love her in red), a headband, and I got you a closeup of her red nails too. And don’t worry, in case you forgot, the breakup didn’t last long. I remember how it feels to suddenly be repulsed by your boyfriend. Thank goodness it’s different when you’re married I guess, because I don’t feel suddenly repulsed by my husband.
