Winter Fa-fa-fa-fashion 2012

Nov 14, 2012

So, there’s a beautiful one-of-a-kind snowflake on your tongue and your butt is frozen cold, what do you wear? Something that is both unique and beautiful as the snowflake but also keeps your butt warm. Rolling out on the wintery carpet are a few seasonal gems:

Faux Fur

It’s warm and fuzzy. That might be the only two reasons you’d need to wear some faux fur, but it also adds some amazing texture and it’s usual earthly colors ground any outfit. Particularly trendy: the faux fur vest and faux fur collars. Don’t mess with real fur- it hurts your conscience along with your pocketbook.

Silky Silk:

Silk blouses add a drapey, sheer effect that looks wonderful with a high waisted skirt or pants. Silk is also super warm if you layer ‘er up!

Shorts and Tights:

Why pack your shorts away in summer when you can layer them with funky tights? No really, why would you hid them when they look so cute? Patterned or colorful tights (or both!) look so great with shorts and boots. If it’s a little colder out, add another layer of tights or even leggings. Just don’t suffocate those shorts in your closet!

Brimmed Hats:

Brimmed hats are wonderful for cold days where you need to keep snow or rain out of your eyes and your head warm and toasty. Or they’re also great for just looking amazing. Maybe you think it’s too big of a commitment, but don’t be shy about this one, just go for it, it’ll feel good.

Military Style:

It’s dark, it’s green, it can hide you if you're in the woods, it goes great with bright neons and bulky boots: it’s camo. You guessed it.

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. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
