Emma, the sexual being, is seeming extra mature and confident in this episode for some reason, even though she’s really just there as Manny’s sidekick for once. First she’s in a jean jacket and a floral cami. Then she’s still decked out in Lululemon as she helps Manny try on dresses. And for the dance, she wears a black spaghetti strap dress, which is… not very Emma, I don’t know. And her hair is.. well, it’s curled. I gotta say it does look awkwardly realistic. Though isn’t her mom a hairdresser? Where was she?
We get to spend some more time today with sweet Early Darcy. First she’s here in Spirit Squad wearing a spaghetti strap tank, then she’s also seen in her uniform. Then she’s in a green tee that shows us a little secret… Darcy is a Taurus. I can totally see it. And finally at the dance, she wears a strapless lacy dress with a pearl necklace.
Emma is all recovered from her gonorrhea, but the reputation lives on. She looks really pretty here in class wearing some layered tanks and a skirt. Chris insults her, and then outside, she really truly does look upset. She wears a khaki jacket and looks freaking exhausted. Next we get a closeup of the toes – which is here because nail polish IS fashion, right? And she wears a pink robe, then a large white shirt for tie-dying. Wait, why are we tie-dying in white? Whatever. She’s also got on khaki capris. For ninja night she wears some dark athleisure. And finally, it’s practically all-khaki-everything with this jacket, skirt, and tan shoes. The dynamic between her and Chester was interesting. I love how she was so unintimidated by him, wish we could have seen more.
It’s time for our BJ queeeeen, yeeessss! Ya know… Emma was experimenting. That’s normal, that should be fine, right? Idk why they had to portray it as such a morally bad decision here on the show. But, I mean, I guess her decision to experiment wasn’t coming from the right place. She was in a bad spot. But on the other hand, does it need to come from the right place?
Anyway, she sure had mastered looking dead inside these days, huh? Maybe this was just the thing she needed to bring her back to life! lol. Okay okay, let’s get on with the fashion. First she is in “semi-dress” rehearsal wearing some layered tanks. She looks super tall next to Alex and Emma, right? For all I know she’s about 5’7, so it looks like bad girls club is just super shirt. Emma’s bangs look…ok. And her hair is flat. Her clothes are extremely tight; I do remember those days. And of course, her pants are LOW. I guess this is a really good example of where Emma is in life. She’s still wearing those earthy Emma colors, and she’s still carrying the usual bag, so it’s like she’s still herself deep inside, but her style is drained of creativity. Outside she wears a jean jacket to make it a Canadian tuxedo, and sports these little flimsy headphones. Also had to show you that cell phone, wow. The final few shots are really just more boring Emma clothes, then another dress-like rehearsal, and also a little shot of that infamous bracelet. Oh yeah, the final fit with the jean skirt and the Airwalks is super cute.
I wish the bracelet thing had continued, even if in the background. Like maybe showing people wearing them. It would have been awesome to keep the legacy going too, like having Next Class kids doing the bracelet thing. Or at the very least, Esme having some on her wrists or something.

Here’s a Sally that is not to be confused with Dr. Sally. No, this is Skanky Sally, Ashley’s soon-to-be Aunt Sally. She is a tanning bed goddess with long Sun-In-lightened hair, prancing around in tube tops and talking in her little high-pitched baby voice. I don’t think I really trust her because even though she seems nice and social, she’s likely a bit conniving. First she wears a limey ruffly tank (layered, of course) with jeans. Then to the rehearsal dinner she’s got on a strapless white and pink floral dress.
Ah yes, Charlie. Not to be confused with Fiona’s Charlie who we will meet much later. This is Mr. O’s girlfriend, and she is HOT. She’s way too hot for Mr. O actually. She’s got this golden brown hair, sultry shimmery 00s makeup, and a red tank. And she is suave too – or as JT would say, “swav-ay”.
I recall someone, somewhere – I think it was Miriam herself – saying that these ‘fits, particularly the green one, are Lululemon. So use that information how you will. Ah yes, athleisure is creeping into our lives early. If only we would have known that soon, people everywhere would be going to sit-down restaurants in leggings and tennis shoes. First she’s in this powder-blue, fitted zip up hoodie over a white cami. And we have to talk about the hair. Not my favorite. The bangs are actually something I would have considered 90s bangs, ya know? Kinda thin, kinda long. I never really thought these were actually in style at the time she was wearing them. The next outfit is the green top & jacket set, which she wears with flare pants, and I believe Birkenstock clogs. These were also uncool by 2004, unless you were a hippie. She also is wearing her famous Che Guevara purse. In PE she wears a tiny green tank and little khaki shorts. And the final outfit is a tight blue tee with a tank peeking out, a jean skirt, and these cute shoes that look like Airwalks or Converse or something.

Well, here we are at the star of the episode again. Paige is first just totally let down, understandably, and wears a maroon tank top under a navy zip up hoodie. More casual than we usually see her. I do love the ponytail though. And this next outfit is, in my opinion, one of the more iconic Paige ensembles. Her hair is all done up and her makeup is done. She wears flares and boots. And a tight-fitting long tee under a pink.. shawl? poncho? Well, you see it here. I just love Paige in pink, and I love that she can wear things that are kinda…weird, yet still make them work.
