Convertible Manual Press
ALL the way.
First... go to a trade show to check out the presses available. You can test them out and ask questions.
The next one is the SGIA show in vegas.
Try taking some fashion risks, things that maybe other girls arn't wearing. I'm 15 also so i understand the whole fashion delema. All the girls in my school seriously all wear the same ****. Slutty shirts, and tight jeans. I wear more of whatever comes to me, i used to be a tomboy, until i started getting into modeling and now i'm a total fashion fanatic. Baggy sweatshirts, leggins and heels are a cute outfit. khaki skinny jeans and a sweater are cute also, sweaters are very in this season. I know you said you don't like sweatpants but they now make skinny sweatpants, that are super cute.
I would try stores like forever21, and h&m. They don't normally have brandname stuff, and they have very unique styles, and they don't really sell sweatpants,sweatshirts with hoods, so try there.
