 Whisper to a Scream
Aired: 2003

Ashley is wearing a jean jacket, a jean skirt, and a band tee. And hello, yes, I would like you to know I am such a sleuth I was able to figure out what shirt this is. Bob Seger, American Storm. You’re welcome. And lastly, Ashley’s hair is very texturized and very much flipped out. I think I always struggled with accepting this hairdo because I feel like by 2003 people weren’t flipping their hair out anymore. Maybe I’m wrong. They were definitely still putting product in it to make it look as crunchy as possible, so that’s on point.

Snake here, has also fallen victim to Spike’s “fake labor” test, the poor thing. He’s wearing a Foreigner shirt, which is awesome. But it’s also his painting shirt, so maybe he doesn’t really like Foreigner that much, so that’s not so awesome. I think it would have been cooler if he was painting in an Iron Maiden shirt, like we used to see him wearing in junior high. Oh yeah, and there’s also a shot here of him in a blue button down.

In my mind, this episode, for Spike, and her fashion, has always been a big deal. So let’s break it down. First, she wears like, this high-low crop top with a grey skirt, and freaking spiderweb leggings, which I am living for. Then, is THE getup, which I couldn’t grab a full body shot of, which is why you see this in segments. Let’s start with the top, okay? She’s got these clip on extension things in her hair that add so much length, her hair reaches her butt. The extensions have a curly-crimp texture with straight ends. Actually, I think she just has this piece attached to the tie of her half-ponytail. Anyway, it’s super bold and daring and very like, high-schooler, so I love it. She wears a blue tee, grey pinstripe vest, a multicolored striped skirt with a giant belt, and black oxfords with black shoes. And a lot of ear jewelry. And finally, she has her heart-to-heart with Liz wearing a classic Gourmet Scum shirt.

Edit: Commenter David cleared something up – the last shirt of this gallery is not a Gourmet Scum shirt, but a SCUM shirt – a real life band! hah thanks David.

Move aside, Gourmet Scum! Simon dresses up his Savages shirt by cuffing the sleeves a bit, layering over a white tee, and sporting a black necklace. And then, may we all bask in the glory of the holy football player dressed in his royal attire.

Dwayne is still looking like the ultimate bully, wearing band shirts with his school jacket, and those red and white hi-tops. Let’s not forget his dangly earring, wiggling with every taunt.

Sorry Claude haters, it’s Claude time. In one of his worst shining moments. He’s sporting the half-shaved ponytail, a dangly earring, and a leather jacket decorated in buttons and painted with Bauhaus. I also got a little shot of the Chucks he wore on the vandalism night, good shoes for sneaking. And then, the aftermath day at school, his look is less bossy, and a little more apologetic, in a simpler button down. Instead of getting angry at all these social problems constantly, Claude could have taken some breaks to dance off his frustration at a goth club.

Oh yes, this is a nice SLAY session here with Spike, the queen of fashion around here. Let’s just forget how dang awkward this whole dating-Patrick thing is, and look at the clothes. First, she’s just wearing her Pogues shirt all by itself. Then for the date, she wears her Billy Idol shirt. She’s done a bit of DIY to the tee by tying the sleeves up with little red ribbons. And let’s not forget this…. skirt. It’s like, you think it’s gonna be jeans, but suddenly it turns into a ruffly skirt. And it’s not just any skirt. It seems to have pockets deeper than you could imagine, holding a giant pocketbook inside. And for the final outfit, I really really love it. She wears another band tee (The Mission) with a skirt, spandex shorts, and a vest. This is sooo comfy looking yet so cool. I never know how to style band shirts. I’m just like, “here’s this shirt” and put some jeans on with it.

Yes, so much Spike for us today! Even though her life is really not that exciting.. like… EVER – except for when she finds out she’s preggo – her outfits are almost always exciting.

First she wears a cropped grey long sleeve shirt over a t-shirt. I can’t make out what’s on the shirt but I do see the words “support”, “animal”, and a picture of a dog I think. She also wears a colorful skirt of many tiny vertical stripes, and some leggings that end under the knee.

The next outfit is her “The Mission” shirt under a vest. I think what’s happening underneath is a grey skirt and then some spandex shorts, some cool layers there. And then some chunky boots to finish it off. I remember the first time I heard this conversation between her and Heather, it really spoke to me. Spike’s a smart lady. IDK why she didn’t say that during the class debate last episode, though. Instead she was just like, “yeah, Liz, you’re right! go Liz!”
