Anyone turned off by [kwlink]Abercrombie & Fitch[/kwlink] and Wet Seal should check out Hot Topic, an alternative clothing store where you'll find black platform boots, fishnet stockings, blue hair dye, studded accessories and much more!

Hot Topic - The History

When Orv Madden brought music and teen fashion together, he came up with Hot Topic. This clothing store takes its fashion cues from music videos and mags, concerts and alternative artists like Good Charlotte and Linkin Park, whose styles are sold at Hot Topic.

Hot Topic - The Collection

Hot Topic styles are influenced by rock music. It has its own private label called Morbid Threads, but also carries all the latest in club, lounge, punk, gothic, street, rockabilly and indie wear in cool brands like Kikwear, GAT and Lucky 13. Hot Topic's most popular items include t-shirts promoting alternative bands such as Korn, Slipknot and Weezer. You can also find everything from bags, belts and shoes to make-up, hair dye and Morbid Metals, which is Hot Topic's own line of body jewelry.

Hot Topic - The Shoppers

If ya wanna know which celebs are sporting Hot Topic's fashions, just take a look at any of the alternative musicians out there. Hot Topic sells almost everything they wear, so anyone who wants to copy their look can easily find the clothes at this store!

Hot Topic - The Season's Top Picks

  • Rock t-shirts with vintage style, such as a tee from The Clash or Iron Maiden.
  • Hoodies and tees tied to bands like Rage Against the Machine, Good Charlotte, Misfits and Incubus.
  • Dickies pants.
  • Vans slip-ons.
  • Messenger bags to hold your school books.
Hot Topic - The Bottom Line

Hot Topic is a great place to shop for peeps who don't dig the preppy look and who are looking for stuff that isn't being worn by everyone else in school. You can find Hot Topic in malls across the US and even in Puerto Rico. Head to Hot Topic to check out its online goods and find a store near you!

I'd also shift the blame onto the parents. It's disgusting and appalling to know that parents don't care about their own child's wellbeing.

Her parents didn't tell her do anything with anyone , She did. Her parents isn't involved in this case!!  She's 13. Kids that age base some of their decisions off of what their parents say. Her parents should have told her what's right and what's wrong, which they most likely didn't do since apparently they didn't care.
