Despite the fact we have OGs returning to the Degrassi screen, we don’t really get to SEE them. They’re just passing glimpses that are barely on screen for a few seconds. Sadly this is all I was able to get of Heather, here at Spike’s baby shower. She wears a white turtleneck and a neck scarf.

Paige wears her hair up in some kind of pigtail updo, with the signature face-framing tendrils, hoop earrings, a pendant necklace, frosty eyeshadow, and a ribbed blue turtleneck sweater. The next day, she miraculously has the same hairdo, and a peachy textures off-shoulder shirt, jean jacket, flare pants, platforms, and her cool tinted aviator glasses. I REALLY love those shoes. Oh yeah and for skit class, she puts on a crown of ivy.

Manny’s not doing a lot. We see her in a blue baseball tee and tiny braids. Then in a 3/4 sleeve pink turtleneck and, of course, the same hair, because I’ve caught on to the TNG filming pattern.

Kwan wears an updo, a khaki pencil skirt, a red top, and silver jewelry. Then she wears a grey turtleneck, black cardi, and frosty eyeshadow. Those days of makeup were so simple.

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”.

Terri’s the only one who shows concern for Kwan, wearing a high unfinished pony, a headband, a purple long sleeve, and a hooded zip up vest. Then – SAME IRL DAY BECAUSE SAME HAIR – she wears a deep purple ribbed turtleneck. And then, pajama pants for all i know, with a hoodie and jacket.

Liberty is wearing some dark wash wide leg carpenter pants. I remember when these were all the rage. She wears them with a polo and a zip up hoodie. Then, oh she’s so smug when she tells Sean time is up on the exam in her little flowery shirt. Shut up, nerd. Then, she’s in a colorblock turtleneck sweater.

It’s Ashley time! First she’s just wearing, I dunno, a black polo and blue sweater, and she’s got her hair in those twisty rows. Then she runs around in a blue turtleneck and zip up hoodie telling Jimmy not to fight Sean. He does anyway, so here she is the next day in a tan cowlneck and blue jacket, yelling at him about it.

So first is this babe that Toby is giving away some electronics to. I literally had a sweater just like this. Fleece was all the rage, and I think I actually had a couple of these fleece v-neck sweaters. Next I wanted to capture not only the flare jeans, but the way they are torn up at the bottom. That was inevitable because your pants had better be too long WAY before too short. Flooding pants was the ultimate laughing stock. Also note that the shoes, well, they’re not important. I remember there not being too much emphasis on shoes. Maybe that’s because we were all in middle school and to a certain degree had to work with what we could get. But you know, random chunky tennis shoes usually completed the outfit. I do have to give a shoutout to some of the shoes that would appear in the 2000s, such as Birkenstock clogs, Wallabies, and Sperrys. And skate shoes like Etnies or DCs. But if not any of those, tennis shoes sufficed. Next is a preview of possible cheerleading uniforms. And then a couple of group shots of onlookers. I see another v-neck fleece sweater, a hoodie, a visor, a chain, spiked hair, and a turtleneck, amongst other things.

I’ve got a lot of Queen Bee Paige’s outfits for you today. First she’s in a high-half pony with face-framing strands coming down. And a shirt that says “2 Spoiled”. Amazing. And outside she wears a long brown fur coat. Next, for tryouts, she wears a shirt with “PRINCESS” on it in rhinestones. And lastly, a lavender ribbed turtleneck with a black miniskirt and hose. Also please note the furry multicolored mini backpack.
