Hey Fashion Divas!
Sometimes we all take for granted that we are going to the mall, and don't dress the way we should.
I mean, duh
WHO doesn't?? Have you ever had problems with deciding what you will wear to
the mall? I do.
I don't want to feel like a big geek by wearing what I JUST
yesterday. I'll go into the store I bought the clothes in, and feel like
a big dork.
Here are some simple guidelines to mall clothes. Some of them
1) Wear what you JUST got the day before!
2) Dress like you're going to the prom.
3) Wear your brother's big sweatshirt and sweatpants. People
WILL see you! You might just run into that crush!
1) Wear something trendy.
2) Look casual.
3) Look comfy in what you wear.
So, what ARE you gonna wear? Here are some CUTE
examples. Today I was at
the mall. (hey I got paid!!) I was wearing my Lucky Jeans, my
shirt that has a 13 on it and is really adorable, my Dr.
Martins, my pinky
ring and my butterfly invisible necklace. Now that is some
good mall attire!
My friend was wearing her 3/4 length sleeve shirt in red and
with a white shirt underneath since it's button up, and her
her Sketcher shoes. This is also good.
For mall trips, I like
to dress like
I'm going to school, except most of the time I have more time
to get ready,
so I end up looking better. I'm VERY open to questions and
ideas for my next
column. I'll probably turn your question into a column, so
PLEASE email us!!
I'd LOVE to hear from you. I will see ya next time! :-)

Sick of Hair
Hey Sick of Hair,
Well my hair is the same, and baby thin. My bangs
seem to hinder what I
can do with my hair. I have it cut so it's shorter in front
and gets longer
as it goes back. I still can pull it into your basic pony
tail, bun, braid,
etc. but that's SO boring! Plus I have to use lots of hair
like to clip up the sides, or pull some back from the top.
Just clip one
side,and let the other down. Little butterfly clips are still
cool in my
school so I use those. I like the little idea to pull some
from the top and
twist it then clip it. I have hairspray glitter that REALLY
adds to my hair.
Try adding some velcro flowers or whatever looks cute stuck in your hair.
gives you some ideas!
I really admire the way you've handled "How Do I
Make The Guy I Like At School Notice Me?" (Oct 11, 99). I am
average in height and weight--not on the plum side. Even
though I admit that from the waist upwards is my best asset, I
too, share the same lack of confidence for my rear. And also
my legs--I hide my rear and legs in more-or-less loose (not
too baggy) jeans, and long "A-line" skirts. But I feel as if
my wardrobe could only do me so much, and I think I need to
widen my choice of clothes rather than wearing jeans and long
skirts all the time. Could you suggest some wears that I
could get within a minimal budget? Also, what is effective of
obtaining gorgeous rear and legs?
I have a similar problem. I'll just offer you a little
advice. I wear jeans
that are more fitting, but still aren't too tight so Idon't look
fat. I wear
small t-shirts that enhance my upper torso. A belt really
makes you look
skinny in the waist.
