Omg. This first outfit I am living for. It’s a polka dot sweater, a polka dot peplum skirt, and some red accents. For filming day, Heather wears a black and white top and black pants, and then for the premiere, she wears, yep, a black and white top, this time with an orange headband.
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.
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.
Heather is just darling in her outfits this episode. I really really love the vibe and I would love to dress like this. Right now her thing has been black and white patterned tops, statement belts and earrings serving pops of color, and black bottoms. I also snagged a little shot of those tapered pants and black oxfords, adorable! And finally, how could I omit the other half of the famous underwear scene, Heather in a freaking 80s bra.
