Paige Michalchuk Fashion 3.10

 Never Gonna Give You Up
Aired: 2003

First, Paige is wearing a light blue tank with some casual khakis. Then, she’s wearing this asymmetrical multicolored tank and, the bottom of this outfit is bizarre. A midi pencil jean skirt with these brown wedge boots it looks like she swiped from her mom or something. Then, she’s in the bathroom in a tiny tee with a floral design and raglan style sleeves, again with those casual khakis. She wears a dark jean jacket outside. Also, enjoy the blue Paige sunglasses because I’m not quite sure when they disappear. And lastly we see a nice blue and yellow blouse with a blue shirt underneath.

 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.

Manny Santos Fashion 3.7

S3E7:
 Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Aired: 2003

New sexy Manny has gotten everything she ever wanted. Sully… and then Craig. The first ‘fit is like, gosh what do you call this? It’s like a track suit, but it’s cropped – shorty shorts and a matching cropped zip up hoodie.. complete with a fuzzy hat, hoop earrings, and white tennies. Then she wears an athletic-inspired cropped tank that looks like it says “SUPER” on it, with low-rise jeans and her hair pulled half-back. Then, her sex-having outfit is a pink long sleeve shirt tied up at the waist, with low-rise flares. And she just, goes for it. It seems kind of sudden, don’t you think? The fact that they did it? Idk, adults be like that but usually teenagers, like, work their way up to that step, ya know? And finally, we are back at school and Manny is a new woman. Isn’t it weird that she doesn’t tell Emma she had sex? That’s also kind of out of character for a teen engaging in such activities. But anyway, I love this outfit. It’s a one-shoulder sunset looking top with a jean skirt.

Emma Nelson Fashion 3.6

S3E6:
 Gangsta Gangsta
Aired: 2003

The beginning of the second end, of Sean and Emma. Weird relationship, don’t really approve of it myself. But in terms of style, you reeeeeaaally are starting to see the separation between the two, as their styles completely clash, reflecting their completely different interests and lifestyles. Look, I’m not trying to say people of different subcultures can’t have a healthy relationship, but you gotta admit that a hippie dating a gangster is a stretch. First Emma wears a burgundy blouse, khaki capris, and cream colored sneakers. Next she cleans the ravine in a blue tie-dye tank and more khakis. I was just mentioning to one of my zoomer coworkers that we all used to wear khakis casually, and she was like, whaaaa? Next is her school picture, which is kinda sad, because it’s like a kind gesture that’s about to get crumpled up. Anyway she’s wearing a pinkish tee with a mandala on it. And finally, Emma is signing the picture and trying to give it to Sean, wearing her floor-length purse, a jean skirt, and a white peasant top.

Dressed in Black
Aired: 2003

Ellie wears a jean skirt, grommet belt, a long sleeve tee with a watercolory print of browns and blues, and a black  tank over the top. She accessorizes with a silver pendant, purple eyeshadow, and crimped hair. Always looking awesome. (Til she gets to college and borings out.)

Terri MacGregor Fashion 2.17

Relax
Aired: 2003

Terri reads palms with a lotta jewelry, braids in her hair, and a grey v-neck under a grey zip-up hoodie. Ashley looking all hard but being all judgey. (I know it’s simply a stereotype that goths are into the dark arts but you’d at least think Ash would be a little more chill about it.)  She wears that bad midi denim pencil skirt and chunky white tennies. Oh yeah, and her prediction is that Paige is gonna die, which is soon disproven but Terri is left in the dark worrying on that. The next day she’s in a horizontally-striped tee and a hooded vest, still sporting the braids. Oh yeah, also the cross body bag. I like to point those out as much as possible till they disappear. Next we see one of those striped, long sleeve polos that are awful. I also had to grab a shot of this Blackberry because well, it’s fashion in its own way right? Next we’re wearing another zip-up hoodie, with sweatpants and those white shoes. Terri staying true to her pajama-chic style.

Terri MacGregor Fashion 2.16

Message in a Bottle
Aired: 2003

First Terri wears a beige hooded sweater, a long denim skirt, a ponytail, hoop earrings, and frosty eyeshadow. To the party, she literally wears the same skirt she wore to the dance in Season 1. I’m sure Paige would have had something to say about that if she were there. She wears it with a black top, dark wash jean jacket, cross necklace, and she took a crimper to her hair, which I always love to see.

Don’t Believe the Hype
Aired: 2002

 

Liberty is all upset because she’s not good at sewing, because she’s supposed to be good at everything. So first she wears her sharp yet casual brown and red collared tee. Her next top is a peachy tee, and she models the jean skirt JT secretly made.. before dramatically confessing she had contracted out her sewing homework.

Mirror in the Bathroom
Aired: 2002

Terri’s got the B plot today! First she wears a coral button down and her hair in a twisty updo. Omg the clasp of her necklace has fallen down to the front. lol. With it she wears like, a midi pencil skirt and white tennies. Not crazy about those long denim skirts personally. Next is more twisty hair, a peachy v-neck, a beige sweater draped over the shoulders all 80s style, jean capris, and her white tennies again. She’s seen modeling a jean jacket, red turtleneck, black blazer, etc. And finally, a darling white peasant-looking button up top with another interesting updo that I don’t know how to describe.

And she tells off Mohammed which is a very iconic moment. I mean I love that this issue of body image and weight is being addressed, but I honestly think it could have been handled a little differently, a little better. I don’t know, I am just left feeling weird with the way Spinner was like “Yeah dudes prefer skinny girls but sometimes we like girls like you.” I mean… like them sometimes for what exactly? Your porn selection? What? And like, that statement was supposed to be helpful.

And the way Terri has to be like “Most girls on the planet look like this [so lower your standards]!” or something, like, you know what I mean? It seems like the main point from the episode was like, don’t worry kids, someone out there will still like you despite the fact you’re curvier! And that was the message, the end. Anyone else, or is it just me?

I don’t know, it was never really about Terri loving, embracing, and accepting herself. It was about her reacting to how everyone ELSE feels about her body. Ya know? Honestly, the main interactions were about how boys feel about her body. It’s so weird. I mean Paige was like “Oh man I would wear that skirt if I was plus size, you’re so lucky” meh but that’s it. We never really got to see Terri come to any kind of resolution. We never saw follow up. We never saw her confidence skyrocket, we never saw her SLAY the next ad campaign, we never saw her look in the mirror and smile, we never saw any change, any evolution. We just learned that some clothes come in plus size only, and some dudes like thin girls and some dudes like “girls with a figure”.
