It’s that time again, the time we get to gift our eyes with the beauty of the twins. Erica is positively glowing this episode because she’s got a little love interest blooming. (Meanwhile, Heather is dying inside.) First she wears this weird but cute sweatshirt with black design on it, a yellow headband, and yellow earrings. Outside it’s topped with a scarf and jacket. I threw in a little pajama shot. Notice how Heather always sleeps in a shirt and Erica always sleeps in something *a little more comfortable* as they say. Then we’ve got a cute little black and white striped sweater, and finally, AH the dance outfit. I just, adore this black and white polka dotted peplum dream, accented with that cherry red belt.
Heather is having a bit of a crisis in this episode. It’s fun to laugh at her but at the same time I do like to stop and think and understand and empathize. Basically, she feels terribly guilty for “assisting” with Erica’s abortion (by that I mean, being there for her, which was the right thing to do). But I do get it – I get why she is upset. She feels much differently about the abortion than Erica does at this point. Erica has gotten over it, and Heather hasn’t. And meanwhile, Erica is moving on romantically while Heather is filled with some sort of paranoia that this whole thing is going to happen over again. But anyway, I’m here about the outfits.
First, Heather is dreaming nightmares in a Degrassi tee, which I would like to own, thank you. Then at school we see her in a vertical-striped blouse, blue belt, and checkered skirt. For the dance she wears this shimmery, flowy, sheer, black getup and an amazing top pony that cascades down one side.
I think it’s been a white since I’ve appreciated the twins’ hair. Let’s all take a moment and just look at those tightly curled, golden brown locks, with their infinite volume and perfect 80s-ness. First, Heather wears a black and white striped sweater, and then the dons this lovely girly ensemble of a sweater with a cute scalloped collar and what appears to be an overall-skirt.
First, Erica wears a striped skirt with a black belt, and a black tank under a – you guessed it – black and white jacket. She accessorizes with some pink earrings and a pink headband. Our second outfit on display here is a polka dotted top under a striped cardi, this time with blue earrings.
Heather is vibrant as ever – this is HER episode. She’s really kind of experimenting beyond the confines of straight black and white. First she adds pops of oranges and pinks to her black and white outfit. And then, of course, for the party, she reminds me of the Little Mermaid (although I know the green should be at the bottom and the purple up top). I think it’s a really cute and fun outfit, which she tops off with a high pony. As high as her hopes for the purpose of the party – to score Wheels. The next morning she wears a giant easter-egg-purple tee, and then that dreaded Monday, she wears a black tank and a white and black patterned skirt.
What do you think about this situation of Heather’s pursuit of Wheels? Do you think she forced things? I thought the attraction was there. Honestly, I’m really truly unclear as to why Wheels doesn’t like her. Why did he just back out like that? We’ve never even seen him into anybody but Steph. I know everyone doesn’t have to be dating in high school, but come on… I was totally rooting for Wheels and Heather… or, Wheather as you young people would say.
