Of all the people that could have discovered Ellie’s bad habit, it was Paige. However, it was so interesting to see compassion between two people who don’t like each other. First, Paige is wearing a full on business suit with these bedazzled fake cateye glasses. Next she’s looking smug in class, wearing a spaghetti strap shirt with cropped jeans. And finally, she walks in on Ellie, wearing a pink flare-sleeve top, sunglasses tucked in the front as always, with low rise flare pants and some beige heels.

So, I work with college students, Zoomers as I like to call them as I write this in 2020. I was telling them about how we used to wear khakis casually. Like, wear them to school with Converse and a tee and whatever. I recently noticed that people don’t do this anymore? So I was telling one of my Zoomers about it and she was baffled. In honor of that, I am establishing a new “trends” category on the blog format: “Casual Khakis”. (Unfortunately this means I now have to backtrack and tag all the other appearances of casual khakis.) Anyway, so Paige is first seen wearing her yarn-adorned jean jacket with khakis. Then we briefly see a brownish halter in MI. In the gym, she sees Craig singing to Ashley, and she wears some kind of blue tank. For her not-so-surprise party, she’s got a midi skirt and some clear heels, with a pink tube top and curled hair. I absolutely love this look on Paige. Crazy to think she’s got her life WAY more together right now than people like Ash or Manny. Also, I want you to notice that in Ashley’s house, there are always little red hankies thrown over the lamps. Watch for it, you’ll see it. Anywhere Ashley is trying to set a mood, there are hankies over lamps.
I was never a fan of crocheted tops, but somehow, everything Paige wears increases in legitimacy. To the beach she wears this pink crocheted top and an updo. Then she’s seen at school in a Canadian tuxedo – flared jeans and a jean jacket which has a strange yarn fringe. And at the dot, you can’t really see what she’s wearing, but it’s some kinda light-colored tank.

Oh, the B-plot is that Paige doesn’t like her locker, so Spinner tries to do some bartering to get her traded into a better locker. Kinda dumb. And she looks really mad here because Spinner gets up in front of the class to tell everyone he’s whipped (part of the bartering process). Paige wears a 70s-flower-power-inspired cardi kind of thing over a blue cami with some dark wash low-rise jeans. Her hair is parted down the middle and slightly curled under. And of course, she’s wearing her blue star messenger bag.

I love the back-to-school episodes, getting to see an updated version of everyone, fresh-faced and not beaten down by another year at Degrassi. Paige wears a white corset/lingerie-style top, some low rise jeans, a blue messenger bag with a star on it, and of course her sunnies always tucked into the front of her shirt. Next she wears a reddish kind of tank that we don’t get to see much of.

So I finally remembered what they are competing for – “Luau King and Queen”. But first, she’s wearing this denim jumpsuit which is actually super hot! Next she’s at the tanning salon, wearing her robe and waiting for her turn. And at the dance, she looks like a hot mess and I love that her hair matches her skirt! lol. The festive ‘fit is complete with capris, platforms, and a crop top.

Ah yes, matching your eyeshadow to your shirt. Okay honestly I see no issue with doing so. I like to match my eyeshadow to my shirt and to my shoes. When people make fun of matching your eyeshadow to your outfit I always wonder, “Well what the heck other color am I supposed to pick then?” Anyway, Paige is wearing purple on purple, has her hair pulled half back, and is graciously allowing JT to talk to her for a brief moment.
