This is just downtrodden Manny being constantly pursued by and disappointed in JT. It’s kinda sad that we don’t actually get to SEE if anyone is harassing her about her pregnancy or subsequent abortion. This was to coddle the US audience I’m sure, but I wonder if anyone really would have bullied or shamed her? What kind of things might be said in the halls? First she wears this Asian-inspired blouse with a zip-up short sleeve hoodie which is kinda hilarious but also really realistic in that our outfits back then really weren’t very put-together. Next she’s seen in like a racing jacket of some kind. The next shirt is a floral ruffly bell sleeve blouse which is super cute. And finally, the famous patchwork fur jacket with casual khakis. Manny wears her hair in a resigned low bun throughout, symbolizing her shame and penance.

A new episode is already upon us. This is a fun one too, because we get to hang out with the baddies! And we kick off with Alex, one of my favorite characters ever. I love early Alex too, because she’s so intimidating and mysterious. We haven’t yet seen her living situation or her vulnerabilities. She’s got this stacked hair cut and wears a lot of plain tees, tanks, zip up hoodies, and hoop earrings. Also the headphones necklace. What are all these baddies listening to, anyway? Oh yeah, and get a load of these baggy khakis. YES. Okay, I do want to say that we see a little snippet of vulnerability when Alex is very upset about Amy passing out. I also think it’s kind of weird that like, the next school day Alex (Jay actually) is asking how Amy is? Come on. I think Alex would know. I really don’t believe Alex would avoid seeing Amy in the hospital or whatever.

Wow, one of Terri’s very last moments here on broomheadz. What a bummer! She wears a half unfinished ponytail, a zip up hoodie over a flowery tee, and a jean jacket. On the fateful day at the park, she wears a horizontal-striped polo, a jean jacket, some weird looking pajama pants, and white shoes. And unfortunately the last outfit really isn’t an outfit. It’s a hospital gown. Terri really would have been a continued asset for Degrassi. I would have liked to get to know her better, ya know?

Alex is too-cool-for-school as always, rocking the short hair, hoops, a zip-up hoodie, a jean skirt, and some boots – which admittedly aren’t really her typical style. I guess she got dressed up for double date night.

Hazel isn’t dressed in the most interesting outfit for detention, unfortunately. But she still landed a boyfriend anyway I guess. So she wears this button down that’s got some kinda weird design on it. She wears her hair down with a headband, flare jeans, and her usual platform shoes. Then back at school we see her for a minute in a similarly-patterned v-neck and her cross body bag.

Terri’s color palette isn’t my cup of tea today – a grey tee with a tan overshirt. But her earrings and hair are cute, and I must say, she has quite the positive attitude about Manny’s pregnancy announcement. “I’m jealous! Babies are bundles of love!”

Manny is not dressing sexily for the moment, but things ARE looking up. Briefly. Craig is suddenly interested in her again. Her first outfit is a lavender top and a toned-down low bun in her hair. The second outfit is a significant one in the files of my brain. Underneath is a long sleeve pinky-red shirt, and over top is an awesome red jean jacket and those square hoop earrings. And finally, she’s dressed for an abortion in a nice track suit.

Spike is Manny’s confidant, when Manny thinks she might be pregnant. I always loved this connection. Spike is wearing a pale green boat neck tank and hoop earrings.

We only get a little Alex moment here but I’m loving the enormous hoops as always, and the bandanna is a nice touch too. So much headwear in this shot.

Ah, Manny. The Other Woman. She’s reached the point of ultimatum here. UGH. Let’s not talk about everything that’s wrong with this triangle. Instead let’s talk about the style. First, she’s calling Craig from home, wearing some orange thing and looking especially young. Then, she’s wearing her ice skating outfit. I always liked those when I was little and would watch ice skating. Then, she’s hanging in Joey’s basement in a purple ski jacket. And this next jacket, this patchwork fur jacket in black, browns, and red is kind of iconic in my mind. It just stands out in my memory. And the very last fit is this feminine, frilly, multicolored pink and purple blouse paired with these super low-rise jeans and probably no underwear.
