2004 Back-to-School Fashions

The first day of school is the best time to dress to impress your new classmates. So even though you may not want to swap your sunglasses and flip flops for pens and binders, you can look forward to your trip back to the classroom by going back-to-school shopping! Find out what's in style for fall 2004 so you can head back to school sporting all the latest must-haves!

Wrap Yourself

The poncho is everywhere this season. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns, so you'll never get bored with its style! Plus, it'll keep you warm during the cool autumn months. Pull your poncho on over your favorite jeans and one of the many tanks that you've been wearing all summer. You can even jazz things up by clasping on a big pin with faux gems.

Plaids and Pleats

Plaid miniskirts continue to be all the rage this fall, with cool new details like double belts. Go for the sweet school girl style by wearing it with a knit sweater, or rock it with a graphic T-shirt, funky hat and cool boots. You can also accessorize your pleated denim mini by tying a long scarf around your waist and wearing it as a belt!

Fall Sneak Peek

Once the weather turns cooler, trade in your flip flops for old-school kicks like Pumas or vintage Chucks[kwlink]. These retro-style shoes are definitely cool for school. You can also step out in ballet flats, which will give you much-needed comfort as you stylishly walk to class!

    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. :)

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