2008 Spring Fashions

Prints Galore

When we say prints, we're not talkin' about those granny-style prints of years past. This season's prints are bold, strong and very flashy, with two of the most popular being stars and flowers. Don't be afraid to mix up your patterns, but be careful you don't leave the house in head-to-toe prints. Try checking out vintage shops to score some fabulous cheap finds. If you're not big on prints, then consider a graphic-printed accessory like a scarf. And now that the snow has melted and the showers have started, put away your winter boots and make a splash in a cute and colorful pair of Wellies! Grab one with a star print, like this one from your local Target.

The New Denims

Although you don't have to say goodbye to your skinnies, wide-leg jeans are makin' an appearance (or should we say, reappearance?) on the denim front. This trend has been slow to start, but we guarantee they'll be spring's must-have clothing! And for anyone who is tired of low-rise jeans, say hello to the high-rise, which trendsetters like Kate Moss and Gwen Stefani have already been wearin' about town for awhile now. Tuck a cool tank or tee into 'em and you'll be stylin' for school.

Bold Color Palette

Ditch the pastels. This season, you'll see an explosion of bright, bold colors like orange, purple, canary yellow, cobalt and hot pink. These eye-popping shades are sure to catch the attention of your crush, plus a few others! If ya can't make up your mind about which color combinations to wear, go the way of colorblocking, which tops our list of favorite spring trends. Big blocks of contrasting colors create the look of colorblocking, and it's seen on everything from tops and dresses to bags and shoes.

    Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)
