I’ve got pages of Paige to share today (ha)! First she’s in a sky blue, which has got to be one of her best colors! Also she’s got very matte makeup, almost grunge-like eyeshadow, and nice skinny 2000s eyebrows. Oh yeah, and when she realizes Snake might have seen her out in public with Mr. O, she hurriedly dons this pink cowboy hat which I LOVE! Then she’s in class in a dusty pink top which has some ruffle detail. Actually, this might be better describes as a “tunic” because this thing is long, going down past her hips. I hated that era of clothing, the whole “is this a shirt of a dress?” thing. Ugh. She also wears a messenger bag and flare jeans. And this is the outfit that she wears while fighting Manny. I hate that such an iconic moment lasted like 7 seconds and was never spoken of again. When Paige stalks Mr. O and finds his apartment, she wears a burgundy 3/4 sleeve graphic tee. We get a work uniform moment as well… and finally, a peachy paisley blouse with cuffed flare jeans and stilettos.

Nurse Paula is Jimmy’s hospital crush. She is in a wheelchair, too. I wish Jimmy had let himself be a bit more inspired by her. But hey, it’s really early. Anyway, Nurse Paula is a 2000s specimen, sporting skinny eyebrows and scrunched hair with straightened bangs. She’s like a time capsule! She also wears a tight lavender 3/4 sleeve shirt and some casual khakis. Is she off duty or something? Anyway, that’s it – hello and goodbye to Nurse Paula.

Kwan has let her hair down, which looks beautiful! And she wears a classic Kwan shirt, a v-neck 3/4 sleeve blue top. I keep saying this, but I know I have transitioned from the age of the students to the age of the teachers when I realize Kwan is actually super hot.

Ashley time… First she’s wearing this 3/4 sleeve boatneck shirt with like, cowboys on it? Low-rise jeans with no back pockets, a grommet belt, a leather bracelet,and this tiny backpack with purple spikes. Then she’s in skirt and leggings – I never liked this type of look where the leggings don’t go all the way down. And here in Ash’s case, she has this blank spot of leg after the leggings and then some tall socks almost reaching up to the leggings but not quite. Weird. Red converse too, to match the red skirt. Spiked belt, and a grey skull and crossbones tank over a black tee. This was almost completely an outfit you would have seen me in at this time as well. I WANTED to dress more like Ellie but ended up dressing more like Ashley if we’re being real. I also featured a closeup of her nails, which look natural, and her minimal makeup. And this image of Ashley spreading her legs on the hotel bed is just… burned into my mind, an ugly, eternal memory…

Hazel is just a bystander like always. Hey, I’m curious – how DOES she feel about the whole Rick situation? She seems to be a bit of a bandwagoner here. Anyway, the first Hazel outfit is great – I LOVE this orange color on her. The next outfit is this 3/4 sleeve tee with diagonal striping. And lastly, she’s wearing a ponytail which we don’t too often see! she’s got a cute white blouse with ruffles the tie detailing.

Paige wears a maroon 3/4 sleeve tee with some sort of graphic design on it. She tucks her sunnies into her shirt like always, and wears that blue bag like always. She has some flare jeans on as well. We briefly see her in a pink sweater before she struts the hallway with Hell Hath No Fury.

Wow, it’s Emma time. And I captured a LOT of Emma for you today. This is the episode where she’s so hung up on Sean that she uses Chris to try to get over him but ends up just using Chris as a tool to attack Sean. Her first ‘fit is an entirely pointless scarf with a pink blouse, jean skirt, headband, and her low-hanging purse.

The next outfit includes that same headband – which, actually, she wears the entire episode. I’m not sure why she needs that headband because her hair is already pulled half-back. But anyway, I digress. She’s wearing that LOVE tank which I’m sure a lot of us recognize from promo pics. I’ve got a closeup shot of that hippie necklace as well. At school, though, she puts on a beanie that she stole from Jack. She wears some kind of skirt that I might describe as a hiking skirt. It appears she tied a knot in her low-hanging purse so that it’s no longer past her knees. And her shoes look like Merrells or something. Next, a simple PJ & ponytail shot. And then, she’s going a little kooky at school, with a green plaid shirt under a jean jacket and over a white tee. She actually wears this with casual khakis. Wow, these just keep going don’t they? Next, we are at Snake’s birthday party and Emma wears a green 3/4 sleeve v-neck layered over more green, and she also wears some kind of patchwork skirt. She dons the jean jacket to go find Chris at the mall, because you used to have to like go to a store to listen to new music. That’s crazy. And wow, all she has to do is drop some cheesy lines and BAM, got Chris back. The end!

First Manny is briefly seen in a pink tracksuit, but the real fashion focus this episode is this tropical, pink and yellow, one-shoulder shirt. I love this, such a 2000s vibe! She wears it with, what I’m going to classify as “casual khakis” though they could be dress pants. Regardless, this is still more examples of the kids casually wearing more dressy pants!

Kwan is an English teacher but I guess she teaches drama too. I’ve never wondered too much about it honestly. First she’s in a neutral button down with a skirt. Next in a heathered blue v-neck. And lastly in a red v-neck with 3/4 sleeves. Her hair is pulled back all the while. Now that I no longer think she’s old, she’s truly foine.
