This Charming Man
Aired
2003

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!

 Never Gonna Give You Up
Aired: 2003

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.

 Whisper to a Scream

Oh right. We see so much Terri in this episode because her story is the B-plot. Toby and Rick are both creeping on her. First she’s wearing drawstring sweatpants, white shoes, a blue 3/4 sleeve top, and her hair up. Next, she’s literally wearing that skirt from the dance in SEASON ONE which is amazing. But I’m sure Paige had something to say about that. Next, she’s in a dark blue kinda peasanty blouse with a khaki midi pencil skirt, and hoop earrings… and this, my friends, is the beginning of the end.

 Whisper to a Scream
Aired: 2003

Wow, this may be the most images I’ve ever included in one post. But, this is an Ellie episode, and I’m a sucker for Ellie fashion, so we’re doing this! This episode is really heavy material but we are just going to “skirt” around that and talk about fashion only, okay?

Ellie is known for combining various elements together and putting an edgy twist on them. So first we have a lace shirt under a leather vest, paired with arm warmers and a choker that feature pink detailing. And her braids will be an Ellie staple for a while. Honestly this ‘fit is a little clumsy to me and doesn’t quite work.

Next up, is an Ellie ‘fit for the ages. The white 3/4 sleeve tee with splits and buckle detailing. This is 100% something I would have worn, not that anyone’s asking. She accessorizes with spiky, chainy, chokery necklaces. She wears a red plaid pleated skirt that has some kind of suspender or strap hanging off. We also have fishnets and these amazing chunky wedge boots. It’s an amazing look and a real shame that Paige spilt something on it. She dons a big yellow raincoat for her interview with Caitlin.

Next, a brief glimpse of casual Ellie in a PJ shirt. And at school, another ensemble I love to worship. More chunky boots. Black leggings. Mesh. And a piece that I’m like 90% sure is by Tripp NYC.

Next, that white and bloody shirt over a black long sleeve with exposed seams of green. And then… AAAAH the red and black stripes, just soooo 2000s mall goth and I am living. We see a couple more outfits very briefly just to show that time is passing. So let’s skip ahead to…

The camo outfit. Cargo skirt. Grommet belt. Camo vest. Black long sleeve and arm warmers. Again, quite strange, but somehow, I’d like to say that this one works. Also featuring Ellie’s backpack which is not alt-looking at all.

 U Got the Look
Aired: 2003

Time for the random catch-all post! First we have a gal sporting highlighted hair, a 3/4 sleeve tee, and a blue mini skirt. And, also, a weird neck scarf. Sully’s type, apparently. Then, a super cool girl on a scooter with an unfinished ponytail, hoop earrings, and flare pants. And finally, just a couple of group shots of boys ogling Manny.

Emma, oh Emma. This is the part where Emma is no longer the main character. It’s interesting, you know. At first she’s like, trying to be supportive of Manny’s rebranding campaign. Like, oh cool, you look great. But eventually she’s like “I’M CONCERNED”. What do you think? Do you think Emma was really concerned about “how Manny was acting”, or do you think Emma was jealous?

First she’s wearing a tight, green tank – with a scarf, cuz, you know, when it’s cold, you go sleeveless and just wear a scarf. She’s also got her low-hanging purse, and khaki flares. At the mall, she’s got a jean jacket over top. Also, she says she doesn’t think they should sell thongs at the mall. I never really understood what she meant by that. All these years, never understood. Like, why not? Where should they be sold instead? The grocery store? Do you find them dangerous, Emma?

Next she’s in a pinkish mandala 3/4 sleeve boat neck top with some drawstring cargo pants, slowly becoming more salty. And finally, for the day of the big blowout, she wears flare jeans, and some greenish/blueish layered tops.

Manny’s not doing a lot. We see her in a blue baseball tee and tiny braids. Then in a 3/4 sleeve pink turtleneck and, of course, the same hair, because I’ve caught on to the TNG filming pattern.
