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!

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
