This is an interesting little episode, where Paige really starts to wear Manny down, making her life miserable. Manny tries her best to fight back but I think Paige holds more power here. I wish this saga could have been drug out a little bit. Oh well! First Manny is seen in Spirit Squad practice. Then she’s wearing a matchy-matchy velour set over a tube top with those square hoop earrings. And that pink plastic watch still, lol. She’s also still wearing her VEGAS necklace, which I still love. And unfortunately she has picked the same dress as Paige for the dance. I love it – pink, ruched, and super ruffly strapless with a dropped waist. However, the length of the dress is kinda weird, cutting off at like mid-calf, which doesn’t seem like something someone would wear during this period. Next we return to school and see the Spirit Squad uniform on her, and later those famous low-rise jeans paired with a red athletic-inspired top. Her hair looks amazing here btw. Next… Manny is being tortured in the mascot outfit. And then she returns to the dress store – I guess Paige chased her out last time – and tries on a funeral ensemble. Ultimately, though, she decides on the pink because she broke Paige’s leg and decided she deserved a treat. That’s where you can see the odd length of the dress – it kinda makes her legs look ultra-short. The shoes are odd too, like, kitten pumps. Aaand, uh oh – Paige shows up at the dance, and they have the same dress! So, Paige rips Manny’s off, and here is her underwear. Never seen a teenage girl wear underwear like this before. Finally, she’s in the locker room in a hoodie. We don’t really see Manny in hoodies, do we?

Yippee, we enter the year 2005 with a new episode and Alex! She’s wearing her usual, a white tank with hoop earrings, casual khakis, and her bra straps hangin out. Then she classes it up a bit, with her hair clipped up and a brown tee. It’s a totally different look. She’s also sporting her cross-body bag and tucks her shades into her shirt just like Paige does. Probably because your hair will get stuck in the nose piece if you wear them on top of your head.

I love this episode and I love that we get to start off with Alex. Alex is being quite the social butterfly, playing cards with her classmates. She is still dressing colorlessly, sporting the long black bob, hoop earrings, a brown zip up hoodie, baggy casual khakis, and Timberland-lookin boots.

Manny is glad to be the one not suffering sexual consequences for once. First she’s wearing this awesome pink velour track suit, low as it can go, with hoop earrings. Then she’s in this cute Asian-inspired top while she screams gonorrhea. We also get to see her in a couple of costumes from the play. I wish they’d gone ahead and made a special episode where they showed the play in full!

We’ve moved on to Part 2 of Secret where stuff goes crazy. We get to start out with Alex. I know this first picture looks more like an Emma shot, but if you look to the left you will see Alex’s shoes, which we hardly ever get to see. She’s wearing baggy Dickies, a white tank, big hoop earrings, and her hair is dyed black. She also socks Amy right in the jaw in this episode, which is awesome.

Manny’s in the play because “she’s gonna be an actress” and everything. She wears a tight tank with a rainbow on it, hoop earrings, low rise jeans, and a petticoat for rehearsal. She’s trying to get through to Emma with suggesting a cozy girls’ night, but Emma wants other stuff.

Alex is looking SUPER pristine to be such a ruff-n-tuff gal, isn’t she? Glistening skin, sleek hair, glossy lips. I dunno, it’s getting hard to buy it these days. I mean, she looks hot though! Here she is in a brown tee, big hoops, and isn’t even exposing her bra straps today!

Manny’s role here in this episode is to push JT and support Toby. It’s a solemn time so she’s not wearing the most attention-grabbing attire at the moment. She has big hoops, her hair pulled half-back, and wears an Andy Warhol-lookin tee with lips all over it. Oh yeah but this tee is very cropped… or is it that her pants are VERY low? These are the lace-up jeans with no button or zipper. Dude, could any of us still wear things like this anymore? Are bodies even made this way anymore? Manny’s funeral outfit kinda cracks me up. She wears this like, idk, Ferrari/race car looking jacket? And those extremely low pants showing her lower abdomen. It’s wild looking now but I guess it was a standard sight back then. I also love her hair down and straight with that middle part! A rare look from her.

A new episode! We made it through Time Stands Still, let’s all release a sigh! Sadly though, the shadow still lingers over us for this episode. Here is Alex, in her tank, cross body bag, and hoops, showing a bit of a more sensitive side. However, the only inkling of remorse I believe we EVER get from her about the Rick thing is “I want to talk about what happened”.

My god, that happened fast. Honestly I guess I didn’t really ever think about the fact that the shooting episode is only the 6th one of the season. Brutal, heavy, and hard. These next many posts are gonna be a doozy. But despite the subject matter, we are here to keep things light and talk about clothing. And we get to kick off with Alex. Her hair is just a’growin but she still dresses the same – tanks, crossbody bag, headphones, low-rise baggy pants, hoops, and those sunnies tucked into the front of her shirt.
