Accidents Will Happen Part 1

It’s unclear whether Paige is really a friend or foe to Manny at this point. She’s wearing a strange woven/crocheted type of tank and has her hair clipped back with some of the classic face-framing tendrils.

Melanda Fashion 3.9

 Against All Odds
Aired: 2003

So this is Chris’s girlfriend Melanda, who up until this day I thought was spelled “Malanda”. Anyway, apparently she’s a total b-word from the looks and sounds of it. But hey, Chris is awfully friendly to any girl that walks by. She’s wearing a red one-shoulder dress (or top) and has her hair pulled half back. Sorry for everything, Melanda.

 Whisper to a Scream
Aired: 2003

Of all the people that could have discovered Ellie’s bad habit, it was Paige. However, it was so interesting to see compassion between two people who don’t like each other. First, Paige is wearing a full on business suit with these bedazzled fake cateye glasses. Next she’s looking smug in class, wearing a spaghetti strap shirt with cropped jeans. And finally, she walks in on Ellie, wearing a pink flare-sleeve top, sunglasses tucked in the front as always, with low rise flare pants and some beige heels.

I was never a fan of crocheted tops, but somehow, everything Paige wears increases in legitimacy. To the beach she wears this pink crocheted top and an updo. Then she’s seen at school in a Canadian tuxedo – flared jeans and a jean jacket which has a strange yarn fringe. And at the dot, you can’t really see what she’s wearing, but it’s some kinda light-colored tank.

 U Got the Look
Aired: 2003

Paige is seen after cheering at the soccer game in her spirit squad uniform and a ponytail complete with “face-framing tendrils” as I like to call them.

Father Figure Part 1
Aired: 2003

If a pregnant woman is not wearing overalls, is she even pregnant? Well, here’s Spike again, preggo by accident again, but she’s taking it quite well finally. She’s still sporting her choppy hair cut with chunky highlights and even throws in a zigzag part. Featured ‘fits are a blue collared tank, and orange and pink tank, and a red tank. We also got a glimpse of a throwback from the yearbook; this is the one that inspired Ashley to say “maybe that should be my new look”. Yeah, you can try, Ash.

Tears are Not Enough, Part 2
Aired: 2003

Terri is such an angel in this episode. I love her role here of comforting Craig as she has also lost a parent. First she’s wearing her white peasant top with a periwinkle hoodie. Then she’s wearing her hair back with the “face-framing tendrils” as I call them, and leis and florals and floral print and she’s just wonderful.

Dressed in Black
Aired: 2003

Paige wears her hair up in some kind of pigtail updo, with the signature face-framing tendrils, hoop earrings, a pendant necklace, frosty eyeshadow, and a ribbed blue turtleneck sweater. The next day, she miraculously has the same hairdo, and a peachy textures off-shoulder shirt, jean jacket, flare pants, platforms, and her cool tinted aviator glasses. I REALLY love those shoes. Oh yeah and for skit class, she puts on a crown of ivy.

Message in a Bottle
Aired: 2003

Paige is telling us about how she’s going to the spa with her mom this weekend. Her hair is rather fluffy and it’s pulled half back. The blouse is quite interesting. It’s like a Ms. Frizzle dress, showing space and planets and stuff? Well I think we’ve seen her wear this before actually. Not gonna go back and check though. It’s a button down, 3/4 sleeve, and worn with low rise jeans. She also has one of those purses that’s like, a mini trunk. As usual, Paige doesn’t disappoint.

Don’t Believe the Hype
Aired: 2002

Terri is mentioning she is Scottish, wearing a grey hooded vest over a pink tee and her hair all done up in twisties. She miraculously has the same exact hairdo the next day while wearing a pale button down. And lastly, we get a closeup of her listening to Hazel’s speech, wearing a headband and some kind of white top.
