Does it feel the same when she calls your name?

I haven’t turned on my music yet so I’m going to choose whichever song comes first on shuffle for my entry title. Then I am not going to say what song it is but everyone can guess (AKA COMMENT!) and then the person who wins will get a shout out? That’s making me look more important than I actually am…

Yesterday I wore a T-shirt, sweatshirt,  jeans and Converse high tops because it was rainy and crappy outside. Well today I got cute and ready and straightened my hair and stepped outside and it was humid and terrible. And then I walked home around 12:45 and it was pouring! I had a huge blister from my shoes so I had to walk home barefoot. I will probably get an STD or cancer or something from the dirty Mill Street water. Bleh.

Pat: "You're a really great model!" Me: "Thanks, I try." Pat: "I was talking about Matt." FAIL.

Oh, hey there Zac Efron! I didn't see you standing there.

Express cotton blazer. Target tank top. Anne Klein flats. American Eagle Jeans. Forever 21 headband. That is it. The end.

KIDDING, FRIENDS! I think this would have been a great outfit except it’s not very “girly” and as soon as I got home this afternoon I changed into shorts. But I promise that I’ve been trying to wear girlier outfits! I even researched girly outfits by… now don’t make fun of me… but I researched by going to a doll dressing website. Yes, those websites were 10-year-old girls can put clothes on dolls and change their make up and stuff. I really needed some inspiration, okay! Anyway, it was actually kind of fun, like “Cute Chinese Girl and Room” was a fun one (even though there was some rather offensive music in the background). I did “Gorgeous Girl Make Over,” where I was surprised to not see my face there. And then my favorite, the Kristen Stewart make over. She had the scowl and everything!! And I thought it was bad enough that I got to choose her foundation color, etc. but also her accessories. And by accessories I mean TEETH BITES or a BLOODY MOUTH. For real! I chose both, obviously.

Before: Boring, generic Bella Swan.

After: Bella Cullen, vamp(ire).

And on that note I think it’s time to end this post. RANDO FACT OF THE DAY: I read all of the Twilight books. Did I hate them? No. Would I recommend them to readers my age? Definitely not.


He’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar.

Yes, I listen to Taylor Swift. End of discussion.

Okay, I know, I know. I haven’t blogged since last Monday. I bet you’re all thinking, “You’re lazy, Amanda! You suck, Amanda! I’m going to stop reading your blog, Amanda!” WELL STOP WITH THE THIRD DEGREE, PEOPLE! Oh wait, I’m probably being harder on myself than any of you are. Except I just got off the phone with my mom and she was like, you haven’t blogged in a week. Oops 🙂 (Ew, Word Press is going to put an ugly smiley there but I have been avoiding using smileys for so long, it’s time to use one. And my mommy deserves a smiley).

So nautical fashionz was hard for me. My problem is that I am not going above and beyond. Like, I wish I owned a T-shirt with a huge anchor on the front, wide tan linen pants, red patent wedges and rope bracelets. THAT (as gaudy as it sounds) is what I want to be doing. Well I did try it once more, last Wednesday…

Ohhh. Ugh. Denim on denim. *Shiver* When a word is in between two asterisks, that means I'm doing that thing. I'm literally shivering right now. See, I'm teaching you all some cool iNtErNeTz* lingo!

Aimee told me that light denim on dark denim is “in” and that Mary-Kate Olsen wore it once. And I’m like, MKO is 3’8″, rich and looks like a frog. (Is that libel? I should know, I got an A in Comm. Law. Yes, I’m trying to brag about that). And I’m 5’8″, a poor college student and GORGEOUS! So obviously this look wasn’t going to be the same for me. But all jokes aside (gasp) and even though denim on denim sounds gross on paper, I actually felt kind of cute and stuff. And I still love my Ked-like shoes from Urban.

So at the end of the day I sucked at blogging last week and didn’t feel very inspired by nautical stuff. DEAL WITH IT. But at least I know what I should have worn. And now I will be better for this week… 🙂

FFFFF I hate those smileys.

“You think I’m trashy, you think I’m white trash!”

That is a quote from the conversation I’m listening to right now (between Pat and Ben) in the Front Room because apparently I don’t have to go to Media Relations until 11. INSERT EXPLETIVE HERE. (Pat had to sit here and tell me what word to use, how to use it and how to spell it for a good two minutes before I wrote “expletive”). INSERT ANOTHER EXPLETIVE HERE.

I’ve been slacking with my updating again, sorry readers! This week I will be better about updating. Last week was crazy because of exams (okay, 1 exam), homework and the release of the magazine! I know you all read it and enjoyed my story about men’s fashion. If not it’s on page 32, read it now.

So last Thursday I wore an outfit that I deemed “girly on bottom, manly on top.” Well not exactly manly but like, “boyfriend-like.” Whatever, take a look.

The Panda's ears are kind of on my boobs but not really so I promise I have a normal chest.

As you can see, the top part of my body is kind of boyfriend-like and the bottom half of my body is girly with my tight, rolled-up jeans and pointy flats. So I really loved this outfit. A LOT. My boyfriend blazer was a Christmas gift (but it’s from Urban), I bought the Panda shirt from Redd Flock (yay me supporting local Athens’ stores!), my jeans are American Eagle and my flats are from Target. And as you can see I’ve painted my nails. When I cut my hair really short (way shorter than it is now) I told myself that I would have my nails painted at all times, so I still looked girly. But this quarter I’ve been lazy and such, but I finally painted them! They aren’t black, they are dark PURPLE!! I love purple. It’s my favorite color right now. Yes, my favorite color changes. Most recently it was green but now it’s purple. Before that it was red.

AH! Anyway. I felt really comfortable and happy all day in that outfit. And my lovely freshman roommate KATELYNN took this photo of me. Any photo of me that has been taken or will be taken in Scripps’ basement has been taken by Katelynn. (THERE’S YOUR PLUG. JK, love you). So this little paragraph is for my friend Emmy because she likes when I say what I liked/didn’t like about my outfit. What I liked: I was comfortable, I felt cute and confident (of course) and I was able to wear black without wearing all black. Plus the panda shirt like, supports animals or something (World Wildlife Fund).

I support endangered animals.

Why you so obsessed with me?

Like I said in my last post (which I know you all read) I was supporting my fraternity this week by wearing Phi Sigma Pi T-shirts. We had rush. There were a lot of people. We have to choose people on Sunday. I can’t wait to vote and be judgmental! Muwahahaha!

Anyway, I ran into Jamie (THREAD’s EDITOR, bitches!) on the street on Tuesday and I was all like, woe is me, I have to wear T-shirts this week so I can’t be fashionable, maybe I’ll just take a week off, wahhhh… But Jamie was all like, no! Wear your T-shirts in a new way and tell people how they can enhance their T-shirt-wearing selves. And I was like, oh thank you Jamie, you are awesome with your awesome ideas.

Lucky for her, on Tuesday I was already wearing a pretty sweet outfit if I do say so myself.

Wearing glasses inside doesn't make me a tool.

As you can see, I enhanced my power blue rush T-shirt by wearing my favorite Nike dunks. Are these considered drunks? Who the hell cares, they are effing SILVER! And they have yellow shoelaces and are better than any pair of shoes any other person owns! And I paired them with some Mango skinny jeans. Mango, what is that? Oh just some European jean company trying to make it in the U.S. Stop trying to make it happen, it’s not going to happen! And then sunglasses inside because it was so bright I had to wear shades.

I bet you can almost see your reflection.

Wednesday I wore another PSP T-shirt but this time it was my American Apparel one. Ooooh! Ahhhh! It’s very comfortable and I wear it a lot so, yeah… I wore my favorite brown skinny jeans (well, my only brown skinny jeans) that are ripping (AHHHHCKKKK) from Urban Outfitters and to be completely crazy, I wore purple chucks to match the purple in my shirt! Side note: I’m going to be a Big so I had to introduce myself at the rush event that night and I was all like, “My name is Amanda and you should pick me because I’m pretty and good at matching, see my shoes!” And a few people laughed and so I felt satisfied and important.

I progressively become more awkward with each photo.

As you can see I look radiant! The gray shirt with the subtle cursive writing on the side! The skinny brown jeans! The matching purple chucks! The glasses! The hair! The girl! MUWAH! I’d kiss her if I could!

I did not take a photo Thursday. Womp, womp. But I wore a yellow T-shirt with the Greek letters for Phi Sigma Pi (in black) and I paired it with my Old Navy black pants and black flippy-floppies.

So, this is for Jamie, but I learned that wearing a plain T-shirt can be enhanced with the right accessories. It’s easy to roll out of bed and throw on a T-shirt and wear the same pants you wore to bed, but why not take a few extra minutes to put on nicer jeans or fun earrings or cool shoes? (I mainly say that because my Nike’s are flipping sweet!). Your answer: Well Amanda, what if I want to be lazy and put on sweatpants and a T-shirt and not care! Then to each his/her own, I say! Well, I don’t really say that, but this blog is about ME and that is the end.

Oh and now everybody has to give me fashion ideas because like I’ve said (have I said this?): I will try anything and everything. I’m willing to step outside the box, or even inside the box, so let me know all of your ideaz!

I still have a lot of homework to finish.

Although Friday morning I wore workout clothes to class, I spent a spectacularly sweaty hour at Ping before I changed into stripes! (Yes, I just wanted everyone to know that I worked out Friday morning and that I’m active and fun. Date me!). After showering, I put on a striped tank top that I bought in Rome ~* like four years ago. The “~*” means I’m trying to be fancy/brag that I’ve been to Rome – sux 4 u. I also wore a new gray cardigan from H&M. Again, thank you Cincinnati for finally getting an H&M! I also wore skinny jeans (maybe I should find a new material/style for the bottom half of my body) and my black TOMS. Last Thursday I was supposed to go barefoot or wear my TOMS or something to support people but I didn’t (it rained, hello!) and so I thought Friday would be a good day to support people and not be a follower. I’m a leader!

Trying to get cute before spending a day at the library. Yes, boys, I work out and study on Fridays. Call me!

Needless to say I was/am over wearing stripes and am ready for something new. This week is rush for Phi Sigma Pi (the *honors* fraternity I’m in – you need a good GPA to be a member so I’m pretty smart) so I am wearing T-shirts to support/advertise the organization. I will see what I can do this week with all of these T-shirts…

*Note – What TOMS Shoes does is amazing and I really admire the support and free shoes they give to shoeless children! I mean, I guess they aren’t shoeless anymore thanks to me and my *two* pairs of Toms. I’m supportive!

Updating this is better than working on homework.

You know what they say: When it rains, it pours! So who are “they” anyway? Well that phrase isn’t really relevant to my post today because nothing bad happened. That was just a random quote. It’s like we’re in an episode of Family Guy! I don’t really like Family Guy. What? How could I not like Family Guy? Uh… I just remembered it rained last Thursday and I got wet. I guess that was my point all along…

Last Thursday I wore a blue and white striped Calvin Klein blazer. (NAME DROPPIN’). I got it for cheap(ish) at the outlet mall! The material has a special name but I can’t think of it right now. Or I just don’t know the name. Either way, it’s made out of something. EDIT: TERRY CLOTH. No, that’s not right. But if it was terry cloth it would have been like a towel and kept me dry! Along with my Calvin Klein blazer I wore some stains. No idea what food it was (was it food? I hope it was food) or when I acquired these stains but the last time I wore my Calvin Klein blazer was at a Thanksgiving dinner party. I guess I haven’t washed it since before November. I promise it’s in the hamper now…

Along with my Calvin Klein blazer and stains, I wore a basic white V-neck from Target and my new favorite flats (also from Target). They are a caramel-y color and have studs on the back. Super cute!

Hey there, stud.

I also wore jeans. It rained. I hate wet jeans. These jeans got wet. I hated those wet jeans. My Calvin Klein blazer got wet too but I didn’t wear it that long because I had to spend another morning in the Scripps basement and it was HOT. Am I capable of typing HOT without it being in all CAPS? Needless to say I stripped in class once again. Stripped, not striped. And my hair got all frizzy from a horrible combo of moisture and heat. As soon as class was over I ran home and changed into sweats and napped. I watched the rain and listened to Boyz II Men and it was so romantic, me, myself and I, alone in my bed. Oh… well, here’s my outfit:

"Me, myself and I is all I got in the end..." - Beyoncé, a true poet.

Although you can’t really see the stripes in my Calvin Klein blazer from this image, they are there. This was the “subtle” striped look I was going for!! However, I really wish it wouldn’t have rained because I think Thursday would have been one of those “I feel really cute and confident” days. But like I said, I was rocking the frizzy, wet hair look, a dirty Calvin Klein blazer, wet jeans *ughhhh* and I had sweaty feet. Did I mention my flats cause my feet to sweat? Well they do. What I learned that day was to read the forecast but try not to let the weather affect my game. Yes, affect my game.

Times I name dropped “Calvin Klein” in this entry: 7. If that is wrong, don’t let me know. I’m a journalism major! I don’t need to “count.” All I ever need to know about math I learned in Mean Girls: The limit does not exist!

OMG I almost forgot to title this entry!

Wednesday I wore a striped shirt. (WHATTT?!) My roommate wore it on Tuesday. Gross? Maybe. But I bought this really cute striped shirt from Forever 21 and I wore it the weekend before but I dropped O’Betty’s on it!! Hey, YOU try eating O’Betty’s and not spilling it on yourself… well, I guess that is possible but that’s irrelevant! So I washed the shirt and it SHRUNK! And I don’t feel confident enough to wear a belly shirt and it was too hot to wear a striped blazer that I own so there I was, wearing a semi-dirty shirt and not really caring.

I look way too happy for wearing something, ahem, used.

I stuck with my American Eagle jeans that were freshly clean and freshly tight. And also my favorite brown flippy-floppies! They are old but I bought them at the Mall of America and it was the best vacation ever. EVER. So these sandals really bring back the mems.

Matt, my roomie (same roomie who’s said shirt was on my back) wore stripes as well, but in a more subtle way that I had been. As you can see, Matt might look plain from far away but up close you can see he is wearing STRIPED shorts! Nice one! And STRIPED SOCKS! Double nice.

Real men don't smile.

Uneven for a more special look.

His white shirt and Nike’s really pull the outfit together, no? This is what I wish I was doing instead – wearing my theme in a subtle way. I have a whole new outlook on my fashion experiment!
