Ew, what do you think of Spinner and Manny as a couple? Weird as hell, right? Somehow much weirder than Spinner and Paige. Anyway, he’s still looking the best he’ll ever look right now, with that haircut. He wears a tee, ball bearing necklace, and also has that skateboarder black strap belt that hangs down the front leg. He’s also seen in his Dot uniform.
I have a few group shots of random extras to serve you today. First is just a classroom shot without much worth singling out. Then we have everyone at the assembly, featuring a rarely-seen hijab. And finally, this shot outside at the picnic table showcasing some low rise casual khakis, baggy jeans, and flares.
Wow… I wasn’t anticipating doing such a heavy post here and now. These are Raditch’s last moments at Degrassi. And unfortunately he kind of ducks out of the school and the show in a very anticlimactic way. But we have to acknowledge that this is the end of an era. Raditch has been with us since 1987. This is the beginning of the show phasing out the original characters. All things must come to an end. But my heart is tied so strongly to the original series, to our roots, to everyone and everything that inspired all of this. And although this TNG Raditch was not necessarily a “good person”, I believe that in DJH, he was. And we must give him credit there. It’s sad and a shame to see him not only leave the school, but leave on kind of bad terms. Sure, one could say his character brought it on himself. But it’s still bittersweet. He leaves… Caitlin leaves.. Joey leaves… Spike leaves… we don’t get any more surprise visits from anyone… and the kids forget there was ever an OG crew. Oh, except Snake. Snake stays forever.
Anyway, Raditch wears a suit like always, representing the fact that we never really got to know the true him. And he’s trying to act happy but really, he’s pissed. Goodbye Raditch, we hardly knew ye.
Yeah, so it’s sweetheart week or something, and Paige is absolutely DETERMINED to lock in Matt. What was that even about, ya know? He was clearly a slob. It seemed like she only liked the way he looked? Anyway, on to the fashion. I love Paige in pinks and pastels, and she really delivers in this episode. First she wears this floral cami layered over a pink cami. Then she’s in yoga with a high pony, pink halter shirt and yoga pants. And, Paige is, in my mind, known for her ponchos. Wait, or is this a shawl? Whatever, I’m not googling it. Paige wears another ponchi. It’s pink and floral and paired with jeans.
Marco is Manny’s companion in this episode. I kinda like them as friends but it never really gets to take off, due to Paige. So he’s rocking the long hair with the side part, which I probably compliment every time I post it. He first wears a tee under a button down and with jeans. Then in yoga he wears his man capris, a tank, and a bandanna. At the assembly he wears a tee and a beanie. But come on, let’s get to the REAL outfit here. For the dance, he wears this amazing red fedora with a matching red tie and a black longsleeve. It’s really a cool look. It’s like he took some inspo from Manny here.
WOW, tons of Manny today, and she is SO stylish I couldn’t stop screenshotting. We have an awesome color palette form her this episode – it’s a valentine’s day episode so we get red, pink, yellow, and orange.
The first outfit is this kinda athleisure-lululemon-looking zip-up top with a yellow cami underneath. This top matches perfectly to her bright ass pink fedora. It’s so offensive, I love it. She’s wearing a ponytail with what I call “face-framing tendrils” left out. We also see her low-rise jeans and pink plastic watch.
Then, she’s in… this is almost like a track suit, but it’s got a skirt with it. It’s a super weird athletic looking set without actually being athletic-appropriate. It’s a nice creamy orange color and she wears a pink cami under it. Her hair pulled half back this time, but the face-framing tendrils persevere. She is showing Chester around and falls in love pretty instantly.
Next, we see her looking super flirtatious on the TV announcements at school, wearing a short sleeve track jacket in red. Are y’all liking this straight hair? I guess I like Manny’s hair in all its forms tbh.
I for some reason really like this next outfit. Just a blue tee with hoops and a ponytail, but for some reason she really pulls this off and makes it look so cute. It says “Babe” on it, similar to those like, “90% Angel” shirts and whatnot. lol. I love it, where can I get one? Actually, I could never pull off clothing with “pet names” on it. Reminds me of that time I tried to wear a choker that said “Bitch” on it but didn’t even last the day.
Now we have this outfit here in the school assembly that we hardly get to see. It’s like, some kinda halter with grommets and a zigzag lace front. Looks pretty 70s, it’s a shame we can’t see it better.
And finally, at the dance, Manny wears a tight red halter, a matching red newsboy hat, giant heart earrings, a jean skirt, and some wedges. Ah yes and when she goes out into the cold to cry to Spinner, she adds a jean jacket. Hey wait a minute… February in Toronto has GOT to be colder than this! Oh,… maybe it’s just a sweetheart dance and not a Valentine’s dance? Eh, whatever.
Wow, so many people are just low-key yoga certified around here! Kwan has taken over Mr. O’s yoga class, much to the chagrin of the female students. It’s weird seeing her in fitness attire, but it’s cute.
Ms. Hot Sauce’s hair has gone crazy. It’s almost like a shag except every layer has been flipped outward and texturized to hell with hairspray. It’s, uh… crunchy. But ok, do your thing. AND she’s principal now. Oof. So she has ditched the lab coat for a suit full time.
