The Goods on Glitter

They used to say, "All that glitters is not gold." But the saying could be, "All that glitters is cool." Lately it seems that if there isn't at least one rhinestone item in your wardrobe, you might as well call yourself a geek.

The lastest trend is towards sparkly and rhinestoned T-shirts and accessories. It started simple enough - a few Ts with glittery words like Rockstar or Brat. Your fave celebs were diggin' the trend - these glittery Ts have shown up on everyone from Britney to JC Chasez.

Nowadays the trend to glitter like the stars (both celebrity and the ones in the sky) has extended to include all kinds of accessories. You can get rhinestone bracelets in just about any color, rhinestone hair clips and rhinestone sunglasses. And the T-shirts are more than just words now - they're funky patterns and psychedelic designs.

If you see a rhinestone T on someone but you can't find it in any store - chances are they made it. Back in the 70s someone invented something called a Bedazzler. It's this little gizmo that allows you to be-dazzle your own clothes with rhinestones and glittery gems. It's making a big comeback now. If you wanna ride the rhinestone craze but want to be more original, check out your local craft store and pick up a bedazzler.

    • A big rhinestone butterfly.
    • A catchy word like Rockstar or Supermodel.
    • All the ones I make myself are the coolest.
    • I think the whole trend is dumb.

    While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.

    I don't even think that legal for a adult to marry a teen I think you should ask that part to make sure my theory is correct

    Do your parents know her parents? Maybe you could get your parents to speak to hers. Or if not, maybe tell her parents yourself that you're concerned. Try speaking to her and making sure she's 100% sure about what she's doing?

    So last year my friend got engaged at the age of sixteen to a guy of twenty-one and they only dated for 5 months at the time. I'm afraid she's making a mistake. They're still together, but her guy seems like he has a temper and might get abusive in the future.  What should I do?
