 Never Gonna Give You Up
Aired: 2003

I wish we were getting such a huge Terri spread under better circumstances, but as we all know, this is where her relationship with Rick is turning sour. First, Terri is wearing her hair half-up and a horizontally-striped shirt, and that cute heart necklace. Then she’s polishing her acting skills with an open button down and a khaki midi skirt. Ew, no to that skirt. Then, we’re in more of a classic Terri look – pajama chic. Sweatpants with a short sleeve ZUH. Just kidding, I’m not actually going to call zip up hoodies ZUHs. For dress rehearsal she dons a gingham sweater and this is the first time gingham has looked unappetizing to me. (Not because of her, but because of the sweater/color itself.) Next she’s in a gray and turquoise blouse and the heart necklace again. I also wanted to point out her French-manicured nails. Which I’d never noticed were severely out of style. HOWEVER, I think they’re sliding their way back into fashion as we speak. Poor sweet Terri. This is a completely overused phrase these days but, she doesn’t deserve this. Our final ‘fit ia a terra-cotta colored henley top paired with some newfound conviction. Conviction that sadly does not last.

 Against All Odds
Aired: 2003

This is it, folks. Another absolutely iconic Manny fashion episode. Second only to the first appearance of the thong I’d say. She’s on a MISSION you guys – to SEDUCE Craig into loving her. Somehow it worked, for a while, too. First she’s wearing this skin-tight athletic-inspired tee, with low-rise casual khakis. Her hair is so curly and lovely. Let’s move on. The RAVE. The CLUB outfit. Carefully curated by Manny on a mission. First is this pink and yellow crop top with flared sleeves. Then, this immaculate pink thong emerging from her low-rise super-tight jeans. And then hoop earrings, the hoopiest hoops ever. Also, super big hair. It’s really a shame that we don’t get a full view of this ensemble. And finally, we are back at school and Manny is wearing all pink – a light pink athletic set with a satin track jacket and white shoes. And she has a big blowout with Emma that somehow invisibly resolves itself.

Aired: 2003

Oh right. We see so much Terri in this episode because her story is the B-plot. Toby and Rick are both creeping on her. First she’s wearing drawstring sweatpants, white shoes, a blue 3/4 sleeve top, and her hair up. Next, she’s literally wearing that skirt from the dance in SEASON ONE which is amazing. But I’m sure Paige had something to say about that. Next, she’s in a dark blue kinda peasanty blouse with a khaki midi pencil skirt, and hoop earrings… and this, my friends, is the beginning of the end.

 Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Aired: 2003

New sexy Manny has gotten everything she ever wanted. Sully… and then Craig. The first ‘fit is like, gosh what do you call this? It’s like a track suit, but it’s cropped – shorty shorts and a matching cropped zip up hoodie.. complete with a fuzzy hat, hoop earrings, and white tennies. Then she wears an athletic-inspired cropped tank that looks like it says “SUPER” on it, with low-rise jeans and her hair pulled half-back. Then, her sex-having outfit is a pink long sleeve shirt tied up at the waist, with low-rise flares. And she just, goes for it. It seems kind of sudden, don’t you think? The fact that they did it? Idk, adults be like that but usually teenagers, like, work their way up to that step, ya know? And finally, we are back at school and Manny is a new woman. Isn’t it weird that she doesn’t tell Emma she had sex? That’s also kind of out of character for a teen engaging in such activities. But anyway, I love this outfit. It’s a one-shoulder sunset looking top with a jean skirt.

 U Got the Look
Aired: 2003

I CANNOT believe we’re actually here. Manny’s transformation. Manny’s thong. And here we are, a fashion, blog, journeying since 1987, to get here. And here we are. Manny has always been so sweet, innocent, childlike, with pigtails, as long as we’ve known her. But now, following in the footsteps of Stephanie Kaye, she has decided to change her style. She wants to be hot. So first we see her in her spirit squad outfit, being totally overlooked by the man of her dreams, Sketchy Sully.

So the next day, she’s wearing a huge hoodie walking to school, only to reveal a sexy velour tracksuit underneath. Not just any track suit – it’s a tube top complete with low-rise bottoms, in a fresh baby blue. She lets her hair down and immediately everyone is gawking. Later at the mall, we see the full fit which includes a matching jacket and bucket hat and white shoes. I love the look of “excessive color” as my high school called it. My high school banned “excessive color” because it was a “gang symbol”. Oh yeah, and her chain necklace says “VEGAS”. But anyway, now Manny decides she needs a thong, by holding it up to her face.

AND HERE WE ARE! Manny’s bright blue, bedazzled thong, busting out of super-low rise jeans, completely exposed under her blue bell-sleeve cropped shirt. In order to show off even more skin, she lets the top droop off her shoulders, and her bra straps follow suit. Hey eyeshadow is frosty, her hoops are huge, and her hat is suede. Also, that criss-cross tie up the front of the shirt was definitely a trend back then (it’s also made a minor comeback recently). Long story short, the whole school is suddenly in love with her, and she gets apprehended due to her “visible underwear”.

Cue next day. Manny is hiding under a huge jacket again to reveal, NO MORE VISIBLE UNDERWEAR. Because she’s not wearing underwear with those super-low-rise jeans today. She also wears an extremely cropped shirt that says “the most beautiful girl in the world” and a floral, cropped, zip-up short sleeve hoodie. It’s truly a look. She’s last seen at the Dot, and she’s added this pink hat which really completes the ‘fit.

Wow, we did it – we reviewed Manny’s style shift! Honestly I love it. Plus, think about this. This really shows a person’s power of transformation. it’s all about context. you never know what’s hiding under their overalls and pigtails. I mean, just think about Tessa Campanelli! I say all this not to sound creepy, but to say that people can go from 0 to 10, depending on what kind of clothes they have, how they carry themselves, how they position themselves, how they’re feeling that day. We are fluid and flexible creatures, we are masters of illusion and manipulation of appearances. We are an art!

Terri reads palms with a lotta jewelry, braids in her hair, and a grey v-neck under a grey zip-up hoodie. Ashley looking all hard but being all judgey. (I know it’s simply a stereotype that goths are into the dark arts but you’d at least think Ash would be a little more chill about it.)  She wears that bad midi denim pencil skirt and chunky white tennies. Oh yeah, and her prediction is that Paige is gonna die, which is soon disproven but Terri is left in the dark worrying on that. The next day she’s in a horizontally-striped tee and a hooded vest, still sporting the braids. Oh yeah, also the cross body bag. I like to point those out as much as possible till they disappear. Next we see one of those striped, long sleeve polos that are awful. I also had to grab a shot of this Blackberry because well, it’s fashion in its own way right? Next we’re wearing another zip-up hoodie, with sweatpants and those white shoes. Terri staying true to her pajama-chic style.

Aired: 2003

Here’s Liberty’s biggest pain-in-the-ass moment. The episode where she decides to become the Napoleon of floor hockey. This is also a big fashion moment, coming in second only to her red cowboy boots. It starts out innocently enough. Liberty is trying out for the floor hockey team in white sneakers and.. some kind of yellow short sleeve shirt underneath her hockey vest thing. Then she wears a classic Lib shirt, the grey one with red long sleeves, and dark wash jeans. For a little fantasy cutaway she’s seen in a maroon zip up hoodie. I also snagged a shot of the jersey she designed. Next she’s in her little yellow floral long sleeve that has almost a thermal texture. She wears dainty gold jewelry with it, and a light khaki jacket outside. And then, she takes a turn for the worse. She gets her hands on a red cape with gold fringe. And then she never takes it off. She wears it over her overalls, everything. Well, until this last scene, where she’s wearing a green hooded long sleeve, just moments before she gets her very own Jeremiah Motors jersey.

Jimmy wears sweatpants, white shoes, and a grey long sleeve tee. So effortlessly cool. Plus his goodness of character is really starting to show. Next he’s in a bluish checkered button down, sweatband around his wrist as always. And finally he’s in an olive-green tee and red backpack.

For once, Emma is Manny’s sidekick, supporting her through her first date process. First she’s wearing some black and white tie-dyed flares with white tennies, a white tee, and a blue vest. Then she wears a pink tee with a white zip up hoodie.
