Everyone says that you have to have a Hollister top and leak Abercrombie to be accepted. Everyone has the girl in their grade that walks like she has something to prove, puts others down so she feels less insecure, and hugs you while stabbing you in the back with her designer earrings. Everything about her seems perfect...her clothes her looks her laugh....except one thing...her attitude. The boys gush and the girls roll their eyes. Why is it that they can't see through a pretty mask and a flirty laugh? You may be the nicest girl on the planet with average looks....and they don't care. You cry, reapply the makeup, and carry on.

The constant verbal put-downs on every girl that doesn't leak Chanel when she cries are almost too much to bear. The teachers see, but brush it off like a fly. They know how middle school girls can be, their used to it. But we're still getting used to it. They roll their eyes, hand you a tissue, and tell you to toughen up. 'You'll meet people at work someday who are worse.' 'Go see the guidance counselor, you're disrupting my class.' 'Would you stop fighting??!?! It's not that big of a deal if she has more A.Eagle clothes than you. Cheer up!' So you slip on you favorite tee,not Aeropostale, much to everyone's dismay,and carry on.

Everyone sees the outward shell, but what they don't see is the personality and the home-life. The popular girls don't have either. Their home-life probably isn't the best, and their personality obviously sucks. Their harsh words sting like cold wind. You wish you had name brand to cover up in, or the latest Aerie jacket. Instead, you snuggle up to Walmart fleece...and carry on.

Ends up the girl you least expect will come back to the twentieth class reunion gorgeous and thriving at her new job as a model or whatever. And she had NO friends in middle school! Cause why? She wasn't worthy of friendship because she didn't own Abercrombie jeans, or a pair of UGGS. Why is she thriving? She carried on...and didn't worry whether the popular girl backstabbed her with designer earrings just because she didn't own a Hollister tee.

plus those stores can have some cute stuff! :) I'm just saying that when girls aren't excepted by ppl that believe these are the only brands you can wear to be popular, it gets ridiculous, and that if you are made fun of for that, it won't matter later in life what your clothes looked like in the 8th grade. I hope I helped to clear that up and if you have any more questions/comments/debates ;) please feel free to post a comment (:

I am not saying that all girls that wear these clothes are like this...or trying to be judgemental. I am just trying to describe the people in my article in the best way possible, based on my own experiences. In this article, these girls are popular and have all the name brand things, and think they're above everyone else. Isn't that how it works with a lot of people? Popular people most likely seem to have it all. I know that not all people that wear Hollister/A&F ect are bad, this is just how I chose to portray my characters in this piece.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to.

I don't agree with this article at all. You ask girls not to be judgmental, yet you judge those who wear certain brands. People are going to judge you no matter what, so at least try to be above that. You're sinking as low as the girls you hate.

This article is very true, but keep in mind that thoose girls often wear all theese nice clothes and act a certain way to make everyone think they're better than you, to mask their own insecurity. Just feel good about yourself, the way you are. And lastly, everyone feels insecure, but it reflects on who you are, if you are mean to others just to mask it or not. Great article!

First off...thank you for the feedback. And I was not trying to insult anyone at all. I love those stores, and I am not saying it's bad to shop there. This is just about the girls who have the snotty personality to go with the clothes. I am sorry if I insulted anyone, I did not mean to make anyone feel that way.

I do enjoy your writing, but I think that this article is being a little judgemental. Yes, it does describe accurately a certain percentage of people, but I was kind of insulted- I wear Uggs and Coach, and A. Eagle... but I don't consider myself a bad person- I know I'm not like those girls you describe because yes, I get stabbed to. But not by earrings- by my own judgement to even get myself involved in the petty schemes of those girls!
