Holiday Part 2

I did a poll on whether this stupid hat with the stupid bangs tucked in was one of the worst fashion choices in Degrassi history, but a lot of you did not agree. Oh well, I still stand by my opinion that this hat is a big NO. And apparently Craig didn’t like it either because we never see him wear this again. So first he’s all cocky in the mall in that hat and a leather jacket. Then he’s playing guitar in fingerless gloves. At school he wears an Oktoberfest tee and a flannel. And unfortunately he puts the hat back on for our final shot.

Lord, we have a buttload of Craig to go through today. Because his cheating ass is the star of the show. First we see him unloading the Christmas tree. He wears jeans, a leather jacket, and one of the worst fashion items to appear on broomheadz – a backwards newsboy hat. This is atrocious. And unfortunately there’s more. But next we see him taking phonecalls from his mistress, with his usual floofy hair, and a red tee under a denim overshirt. His next appearance is in a raglan tee – try not to get distracted by Joey’s awful turtleneck, we will get to that in another post. Next, oh no – that awful hat is back. He’s even tucked his bangs into it. Who let this happen? He continues to wear this awful thing throughout the rest of these shots. It’s kinda hard to pay attention to his boring shirts, pants, and shoes that I’d otherwise go over with you.

I don’t know why, but Caitlin’s lack of confidence is just, strange to me? I feel like she shouldn’t be so wimpy at this point in life. So yeah in this episode she’s weirdly lingering around Joey’s family, and unfortunately Sydney makes it worse by making Caitlin a babysitter, further entwining her with their family. Anyway, she’s first at the tree-trimming party in a red v-neck, sporting that bleach blonde textured haircut. Then, she’s late for Angie’s… recital? What is the word I’m looking for? In a blue puff jacket and a striped scarf. Next, she’s again, lingering at Joey’s house, in a purple horizontal-striped shirt. Then her best bud Sydney comes to see her at work. She’s wearing a turtleneck and a zip-up leather jacket. Sometimes in the 2000s, we were lost. Lost between the 90s and the future and unsure of what looks good. And finally, she’s doing the babysitting in a grey and pink raglan tee.

Shall we just call this the “Craig just got out of bed” phase, in terms of his attire? Messy hair, baggy jeans, and tee shirts. But, the leather jacket makes it look like he tried. However, can you believe this is what he wore, minus the jacket, to the club? God, he stuck out like a sore thumb. Like bro the coffee shop is down the street. That should have been an indicator right then and there that Craig and Manny were never meant to be.

Wow, this may be the most images I’ve ever included in one post. But, this is an Ellie episode, and I’m a sucker for Ellie fashion, so we’re doing this! This episode is really heavy material but we are just going to “skirt” around that and talk about fashion only, okay?

Ellie is known for combining various elements together and putting an edgy twist on them. So first we have a lace shirt under a leather vest, paired with arm warmers and a choker that feature pink detailing. And her braids will be an Ellie staple for a while. Honestly this ‘fit is a little clumsy to me and doesn’t quite work.

Next up, is an Ellie ‘fit for the ages. The white 3/4 sleeve tee with splits and buckle detailing. This is 100% something I would have worn, not that anyone’s asking. She accessorizes with spiky, chainy, chokery necklaces. She wears a red plaid pleated skirt that has some kind of suspender or strap hanging off. We also have fishnets and these amazing chunky wedge boots. It’s an amazing look and a real shame that Paige spilt something on it. She dons a big yellow raincoat for her interview with Caitlin.

Next, a brief glimpse of casual Ellie in a PJ shirt. And at school, another ensemble I love to worship. More chunky boots. Black leggings. Mesh. And a piece that I’m like 90% sure is by Tripp NYC.

Next, that white and bloody shirt over a black long sleeve with exposed seams of green. And then… AAAAH the red and black stripes, just soooo 2000s mall goth and I am living. We see a couple more outfits very briefly just to show that time is passing. So let’s skip ahead to…

The camo outfit. Cargo skirt. Grommet belt. Camo vest. Black long sleeve and arm warmers. Again, quite strange, but somehow, I’d like to say that this one works. Also featuring Ellie’s backpack which is not alt-looking at all.

Caitlin just walked out of the 70s with this tan and coral suit with an extremely enlarged collar. Not your best work, wardrobe team. Next, she wears strappy wedge sandals, a paisley pencil skirt, a burgundy top, and a motorcycle jacket. Also interesting. And lastly, we just see for a moment that she wears a sheer patterned blouse over a black cami.

Great, a whole lotta Craig. First, I got this shot of him trying to get into Ashley’s pants because we see a brown leather armband. Then we see him in his leather jacket, wide-legged pants, Converse, athletic-inspired tees. For sex night, he wears a gross brown button-down with like an extra large collar. And lastly… an Aquarius shirt? Is Craig and Aquarius? Or is that supposed to be a band?

So here’s Wendy. She wears a red leather moto jacket, but other than that I can’t really tell because of the shadows. Side note though, I went to find the actor’s name for this post, and her name is just “Pip”. That’s it. Pip. Went and watched the ending credits. “Wendy…Pip”. Wow, okay.
