ok. ive been BEST friends with this girl since 2nd grade. then she moved 2 years ago. but we still talk and see eachother. but after she moved, she started caring about hoe she looked, and she started being mean to me on the computer. but when i talk to her she's like her old self. and the most important thing is now (on the computer) she's starting to tell me that i should dress better, and i should wear brand names. but that's not me. what should i do?

Just ignore it.
The next time she mentions it, just be like,"Eh, brand names aren't me, sorry." And move onto another subject. If she keeps persisting it, though, I would talk with her. It'd sound to me then like she might want you to be "cooler" since wearing name brands is "cool" to most people for some odd reason.
I'd then just mention something to her and see what she says and she why she keeps persisting that you wear name brands and that you should dress better and everything. And once more, just tell her, you're sorry, but that's not what you want to dress like, it's just not you. And she should just accept it and move on.
