Emma cracks me up, dressing all stereotypical all the time. Gotta love it. First she wears a brown tank top, bra straps and all, and some rad low-rise khakis belted with a striped brown belt. Eating a bowl of fruit of course. Next she’s in a tee which seems slightly non-Emma. But then I realized it’s probably another World Wildlife Fund shirt because I can see animals on it. She’s going through her B-plot of Snake finding out he has cancer.

Lucy is looking like a proper 90s/00s bridesmaid with baby’s breath in her hair, a spaghetti strap dress, and a matching neck scarf, with metallic lipstick. God I hate this color. But I love and accept Lucy no matter what she wears.

Well this is fun! Here’s Fancy the Stripper’s ensembles to spice things up for us. She crashes the stag party with hair to the sky, black tights and some fierce black stilettos, hiding under a tan trenchcoat. She drops it on the floor to reveal a deep red spagetti strap top and mini skirt, featuring that same straight/square neckline, and a pink feather boa. Isn’t it kind of gross that Mr. Raditch is there? Then she shows up at the wedding in like, a tan?  I don’t even know what color this is.. curvaceous dress with a red shawl, and her her in an updo. It was fun having Fancy around for an episode, but now we must say farewell! Oh yeah, her real name is Connie, but who cares?

It’s really unfortunate this is how we have to look at Emma for such an important moment. Spike marries Snake and Emma looks like crap. She wanders around the streets of Toronto with this hair, a baseball tee, some paper-thin “jacket”, random pajama pants, and some weird shoes. Of course to go spread literal rumors to Snake. So annoying. And then for the wedding, as the maid of honor, she wears a lavender-colored spaghetti strap dress with little frills on the shoulder. It has that straight kind of neckline going on – i want to say square but that’s not the word. Anyway, very 2000s. Lovely color.

First Caitlin wears jeans and a maroon tee. Then, in beautifying herself to serve in the role as bridesmaid, she’s seen in a smock and a towel around her hair. And finally, the bridesmaid dress (which she said she picked out), is a dusty green color and comes complete with a neck scarf. She wears an elaborate twisty updo featuring hair flowers. Personally I hate dusty pink and dusty green. If you’re going to be green, BE GREEN! Like we didn’t see enough crappy colors on Caitlin in DJH and DH. Here’s some more.

Emma is all summery, wearing a blue tank and half-pigtails with a denim skirt and white tennies. Later she puts a matching short sleeve cardi over it and wears her old faithful cross-body bag. Next is a purple spaghetti strap tank and jeans.

Okay sorry for the terrible quality but I had to snag a picture of this girl’s blue spaghetti strap dress complete with platform flip flops and tiny purse. Then a shot of some baggy-clothes boys and pencil skirts and pedal pushers on the girls. Then, some dude with spiked hair getting his picture taken. And then… Dude. Okay, this photographer really reminds me of the creeper who picked up hitchhiking Wheels. DOESN’T HE! And I’m like, perpetually pissed about the main line he delivers – “A girl as pretty as you should never frown.” WTF is that supposed to mean? That if I’m pretty I don’t have problems, or that if I frown you don’t enjoy the view which is me as much? Sit down you creeper. I’m not even gonna describe your outfit.

Manny is always very color coordinated. Her hair ties, necklace, and spaghetti strap tank are all blue in this first shot. Then it’s picture day, and she wears an orange front-tie tank shirt with some dark pants.

Our first episode starring Terri! Often dressing for comfort, she starts off with a white tee, blue zip up hoodie, a ponytail, and a necklace with earrings. And… wait… pajama pants? Okay so here we have Terri wearing pajama pants to school. Yes, yes, I remember this horror. I’ve pretty much always been a little shocked and put off by this since I first saw it in about 2002.

But I do want to take a moment to talk about wearing pajama pants in public. It used to be a thing, I suppose. However, obviously in high school it was banned. I think because you could easily pull them off, and everyone knows that high schoolers are only wanting to pull each other’s clothes off. Everyone could not wait to get to college because the rumor was, you can wear pajamas to class. Hell yeah! Let me state that I was never the type who longed to wear my pajamas to school. But once I got to college, I joined a sorority that also had a rule where you couldn’t wear pajamas to class. Foiled again. But the 2000s have since passed. And to be honest, I’m not even sure if people still wear pajama pants like this even in their own home anymore? Anyway, the battle for public pajamas has ended. Because we have since found a compromise – leggings or similar workout clothes in public. They’re comfortable, and if anyone asks, you ‘just came from the gym’!

But here we are, and Terri did not just come from the gym. She took the time to fix her hair, put in jewelry, but not to put on pants. And that’s just the truth.

Moving on, Paige and Ashley hot Terri up for the dance. She wears a black spaghetti strap top, a pastel piano recital chiffon pencil skirt, and platform mules, which are necessary to create a sturdy foundation for drunken legs. Her hair is also in a twisty formation. What would you call this? Similar to cornrows, but twists. Anyway, we all agree she looks fine as hell. And she gets down at the dance. However, like Stephanie Kaye, the crazy dance puts her down for the count.

The final image is reminiscent to the walk of shame. She’s back in pajamas again. Haha just kidding, all I can see is a grey zip up hoodie, and regret. And that freaking unfinished ponytail. What is it with the 2000s and wearing no color, all pajamas, and sloppy hair?
