2006 Spring Fashions

2006 Spring - The Beatnik

The Beat Generation (American writers of the '50s who influenced the '60s) and Sputnik (the Soviet satellite) spawned the term "Beatnik." The Beatnik look, also known as the New Mod, is influenced by the Mod fashion of the '60s. It's all about monochromes (black-and-white) - turtlenecks, skinny pants, miniskirts, striped tops and dresses, opaque stockings and fishnets, go-go boots and ballet flats. As with any trend, don't overdo the Beatnik cuz you'll look like a zebra!

2006 Spring - The Victoriana

This is an edgier version of the fashion worn during England's Victorian era (1837-1901). With hints of Goth and Punk, Victoriana is soft and romantic without the frou-frou. The trend includes lace blouses, ruffled sleeves and necklines, tiered skirts and ribbons and bows, which are popping up at the waist and back. Pull off the look by pairing a Victorian blouse with skinny jeans and flats.

2006 Spring - The Nautical

The Nautical trend gets its inspiration from sailors - think of the colors navy, white and red, sea symbols like shells, anchors and pirates, and lots of stripes! But stick to one stripey item at a time cuz you don't want to go overboard.

2006 Spring - The Tomboy

If Victoriana is too girly for you, then you'll like the Tomboy look of oversized shirts, vests, suspenders and trouser-style shorts. Don't bother dishing out big bucks cuz you can just dig around in your dad's or BF's closet. Find a big, baggy dress shirt, wrap a wide belt around your waist - not your hips - and wear it with jeans and a vest. If the shirt is long enough, make it into a shirt dress!

    Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumoursspread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

    I've been bullied and teased before. Honesty a bullies opinion means no more than anyone else's opinion does so pay them no mind.

    I've been bullied. I've been teased. But, you really shouldn't pay attention to bullies. If you compare them to everybody I'm the world, they're one tiny thing, so why should their opinion matter?
