my best friend Erica, who I've known since I was 5, has turned into a super prep. being preppy doesn't bother me, since I'm preppy also. wearing abercrombie and dying your hair blond isn't a big deal.
but Erica will now ONLY wear things from abercrombie and if she sees you wearing any other brand she says she's embarrassed to be seen with you.
she went out for cheerleading, not because she likes it but because it's the preppy thing to do. of course it helps with popularity, but she was already popular to start.
she says "like, OMG" all the time in a very annoying high pitched voice.
and she acts dumb around guys with really bothers me because I know how smart she is.
she doesn't act this bad when it's just the two of us, but throw in another girl and she gets preppier, and throw in a guy and all of a sudden she's a super prep bimbo.
should I talk to her about this?

How long has this been going on for?
I can understand how only wearing Abercrombie and be annoying and how its the only clothing brand that's the "coolest". Honestly Hollister, A&E, Abercrombie, they're all really the same. They use the same exact material for their graphic Tee's, Jeans are all the same color dyes etc.
If she started saying OMFG and acting not her usual self when others around, she probably read something or watched a show or movie that encouraged this. I know girls can be easily changed by a magazine article if they don't like their current selves.
I'm sorry to hear she won't act her normal self around you and others. I'm not sure if she's trying to be the bigger person around others to show she's better than you or them, but something happened to her self conscience that's making her do this.
I've seen guys do this, I'm the polite guy, the athletic one, the all around well liked romance guy, then some of my friends act like a d*** to me, making fun of me in front of girls or other people, showing that they have the confidence to be annoying and a prick. I know how you feel, and I normally wear sleeveless tee's just my style since I was 11 years old, and the guy just gives me crap for it when its been a style for more than 7 years. Lol and its not even Abercrombie. So I totally understand how you feel like you want to address your friend on this.
I'd say give her space and time, she may realize that you've become tired of her attitude and just need a little break. If she doesn't realize what she's been doing after you've backed off her a little, then you should address, but telling her you wish she was the regular self around you etc. but then again, I don't know who she really is and all.
But I wish you luck.
