 Whisper to a Scream
Aired: 2003

Oof, Ellie’s mom. Sorry but I think we can all agree, she’s a total b-word, and the alcoholism is not to blame for that. She just is. I find her terrifying. She definitely dresses in a way that shows she may possibly care what other people think, and it’s demonstrated when she tells Ellie not to make a scene, and smile, during Colonel’s farewell. Despite her pearls, blouses, and shades of pink, we can still see she’s a hot mess.


Melanie Brodie Fashion 4.8: Melanie Moment

DH S1E8: Little White Lies
Aired: 1989

Melanie shamelessly dresses like a full on 1950’s woman. It’s not even subtle. It’s just BAM in your face let’s go to the sock hop. Honestly those scarf-tied side ponytails kind of get on my nerves, but I’m trying to appreciate. She definitely delivers variety to DH. First, we have a light blue cardi, pearls, a freakin hot pink hair scarf, and a floral skirt. Then we do see her wearing a floral top from junior high. Then for the party, Melanie gets a little wild, ditching the cardis and exposing her arms. And finally, just a green patterned shirt, a blue pencil skirt, and a mad hangover. (It always annoyed me how she had to make a point “I am never drinking again, I felt SO BAD on Saturday.” Like, yeah, yeah, writers, we get it, drinking is bad.)

Karen Avery Fashion 3.9: Avery Attire

DJH S3E9: Food for Thought
Aired: 1989


Ms. Avery’s outfit is just beautiful today! She rocks the pink suit with a white scarf, a pearl necklace,  white belt, and she’s having an especially good hair day. A+ from the broomheadz curator. It’s almost like what an adult Stephanie Kaye might wear.

Aired: 1988

Aw, this episode is so sad. I really do feel for Caitlin when Joey just stomps on her heart without even knowing he did it.

Caitlin 1 caitlin 2 caitlin 3

Caitlin is wearing a bright ensemble of blue and yellow: yellow skirt and belt with a sky blue tee. She accessorizes with an airplane broach, channeling her inner  flight attendant.

I adore these mom jeans with a peachy oversized tee and cutoff sleeves. I have just noticed that I think she’s wearing an ankh necklace… If that in fact is an ankh, then that’s quite possibly the necklace we even see her wearing on into Degrassi High!

I also don’t know if I’ve taken a moment to talk about Caitlin’s hair. I love that blond streak that almost gives the half-n-half effect that I love so much. Here are a couple of shots of Caitlin daydreaming about being Joey’s date, considering some gigantic fake pearls.

And here’s Caitlin in a dress she tries on for the dance but ultimately decides against. I mean, she doesn’t want to look like she’s trying too hard. Still, I love all the tulle and the blue, complete with little kitten heels.

For the dance, Caitlin decided on a pink tube top, black corset belt, black pencil skirt, fluffy black sweater, an updo, and silver jewelry. She tried really hard and she looks great. Joey was just too blind!

I love this ensemble because it looks so comfortable: taupey combo of striped tee and solid shorts, complete with a brown belt. I’m not sure what you call this kind of shorts. I would just call them flowy mom shorts?

Stephanie Kaye Fashion 2.13

Aired: 1988

Steph seems to have combined her bombshell look with the “more mature” evolution. We will call it sexy professional. Or professional sexy. Business sexy.

Steph’s in her all-pink suit, with her signature butterfly belt, tons of pearls, and a royal blue sweetheart tube top. Not as much skin showing, but still a definite show-stopper.

Here, Steph goes with the usual tube top mini skirt recipe, but to tone it down she’s thrown on this big old floral sweater which I am fairly certain I’ve seen Michelle wear also.

And for the dance: not as skankalicious as the “old” Steph might’ve been, but still with the usual flair we would hope to expect from Stephanie Kaye. She has a red sequined tuve top that is just lovely, with a dark skirt, and finally, the “sparkly pink thing” as it’s affectionately known as in some circles, with, of course – pearls!

Holy crap. I think this shirt might have David Bowie’s face on it? Anyone? For those of you reading this way in the future.

I believe she wore this shirt before and I was unable to make it out. It still fits the monochromatic bill, and looks really cute with a grey headband.

So 80s chic. I love the black and white checkered blazer and the white turtleneck, with black bottoms and rolling eyes.

And this dress again! ❤ I adore this getup. This is exactly what my soul longs for when I’m watching anything from the 80s: the 80s school dance dress. We are so fortunate to be able to have a better look at this white off-the shoulder dress with a v-shaped waistline and lace skirt. I can almost feel the fabric – it looks so soft! She’s accessorized with one dangly earring, loads of pearls, and a black belt. And it looks like someone bought her a corsage!;)

Avery is elegant as always with a half-pony, a grey blouse, and big pearls.

Another way to wear the giant pink shoulderpadded dress – with a long fringey necklace.

And this is Avery’s go-to dance outfit. You may remember this blue floral dress at another dance before. The sweet updo makes it all a bit more formal.

Dang, I’m sure by now that this lady’ character has to have a name. I’ve got to do some digging. This unsuspecting library lady enjoys Colby’s creepy company while wearing a crisp white sweater, a grey plaid skirt, and pearl accessories.
