More Audience Questions galore!!
I have decided to post a bunch of audience questions for my column this week. Please
remember that I am very interested in helping you fashion divas if you ever have a question.
Just send your question, and I will answer it and have it posted on my section.
Thanks a lot,
My elbows are ugly. They're dry and black. I've tried
scrubbing them to applying lotion but nothing works. So when I
go out,I have
to wear something that would cover my elbows (the same goes
knees) like a cardigan etc. I'd really like to wear something
sleeved but don't want to bend my arms all the time. Please
Everyone has ashy elbows...don't feel so alone. Have you
vaselene or baby oil on them at night? I know how much of a
pain this can be
because my elbows get the same way in the winter. You could
3-quarter length shirts...they have enough length to where
they barely cover
your elbows but have just enough length to hide 'em. There
isn't really much
to wear to cover your elbows though. Have you seen maybe a
about your elbows? A dermatologist can help you out a lot
with any skin
problems you might have. Give it a try and write me back and
tell me what's
4ever Your Fashion Junkie,
I'd like to find out how I can get a new look. Something that
will turn heads. I'm one of prettiest girls in my class and can turn
sometimes just by my face, but not the right faces.
I need something new. I'm going to America in December
so I also need to find out the winter fashion there as soon as
help with both problems.
Well, right off the bat I'm not sure what you're sportin
now...so I'm not
sure what new look advice to give ya. You said that you turn
the heads you would like to turn. Then I agree, if that's not
what you want
you need to find a new look. You're coming to America in
December? What part?
East coast or West coast? I'm
not sure what
kind of clothes you are into wearing, but I made a list of
the websites you
should check out for the styles that are in around here on
the east coast!

Abercrombie: Naughty or Nice
4ever Your Fashion Junkie,
Please, I am in dire need of fashion help!
I go to a catholic school, so unfortunately I have to wear a
not that bad, but it is difficult to come up with new ways to
be unique when
everybody is wearing the same thing. Our school is not too strict
about the uniform,
so I need to take advantage of that... pronto!
Okay let's see, well what does your school
uniform consist of?
White top and plaid skirt? If yes, then have you tried a
white quarter length
blouse with say maybe a trendy/classy scarf? This may sound
out of date, but
you could also maybe add a tie to your blouse. Beads are in
this fall from
bracelets to daily wear. Many girls even like to make their
You could try making your own nifty accessories and adding
that to your look.
Try finding a cute cardigan or two to go along with your
skirt and blouse duo
in a thrift-shop or designer store. You could even try
looking for a pair of
shoes that stand out but make a bold statement. Search for a
purse that catches your fancy and carry it around with you to
add to your
school's synchronized style.
Dig deep and try to find a pair
of earrings that
you like, that you are certain no one else has. Coordinate
in your uniform with maybe choice of nylons,socks, or hair
4Ever Your Fashion Diva,
My name is Hailey. Here is my problem with the "Body Shape Quiz" that I just
suggested that I should pay more attention to the people
around me that have
the same body shape and to be familiar with what they were
wearing and if I
liked it I could go look for something like it in the store.
Well, I have
been doin that and I personally have a lot of problems fining
jeans. I have asked my friends around me that I know where
they get their
jeans and then when I go to the store and look for those
jeans or any kind of
jeans they are never there. It seems to be that whenever my
friends go to a
clothes store to get jeans they find the right jeans and
those are the people
that wear the same size as me, but then when I go I can't
EVER seem to find
the jeans I'm looking for. I try them on and I don't seem to
in them!!! It's so weird!! If you have any suggestions I
appriciate it soooo much!!!
Thanks for your time!!!!
I hate shopping for the right jeans...don't you?! I
where you are coming from sweets. It gets really tiring after
the 12th pair
of jeans and you can't find the right pair. Sadly, there
really isn't much to
do about your problem. You just have too keep searching for
the right pair,
and hope that your 13th pair will be the right ones:o)
much on the type of jeans your friends are wearing. If you
comfortable, then they aren't for you no matter what they can
do for your
body, or if they coordinate with your body shape. It depends
preference too. If you like snug fitting jeans.....try
boot-cut, flares, or
slims. If you like loose fitting jeans try silver tabs boy
cut jeans, or
