How to Dress Like a Punk Princess!

A lot edgier

Princess meets punk!
Punk Princess Fashion

Punk Princess - Pretty in Punk

Punk Princess style is edgy yet pretty, hard yet soft. It's about mixing punk with feminine pieces, like a skull and crossbones tank top with a frilly skirt. It gets its influence from the '80s - lots of oversized shirts, lots of bold patterns and definitely lots of color. So don't stick to all-black, but accent it with neon pink, electric blue and deep red.

Punk Princess - Drop-Dead Gorgeous

Skinny jeans, or drainpipes, are an essential wardrobe item this season. They look great with tees featuring skulls and crossbones and bands like the Ramones and The Clash. More must-haves are colorful leggings, footless tights and fishnet stockings paired with t-shirt dresses, miniskirts and cutoffs.

Punk isn't complete without a cool pair of kicks like bright Converse sneakers (think pink, purple or green), checkered Vans and retro Keds that Mischa Barton sports around town. Mischa's pretty girly - but remember, you don't have to be bad to the bone to pull off the punk princess look.

Punk Princess - Hair to Dye For

When it comes to hair, there are no rules. It can be natural, dyed in every color of the rainbow, straight and long like Avril Lavigne's, short and cropped like Kelly Osbourne's, or cut into a mohawk! If a mohawk is too extreme for you, then try out a faux-hawk (you don't have to shave the sides of your head). Comb your hair over to one side or spike it up - it's completely up to you!

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
