Center of Attention

I’m listening to “Center of Attention” by Guster as I blog this. How appropriate. Anyway, I’ve got about an hour before I go to Applebee’s with two of my roommates so I thought I’d go ahead add another post today! Applebee’s has the best apple margaritas evahhh. I can’t wait to drink one, mmm.

So this week’s theme is going to be nautical. Oooooh. Ahhhhh. I’m sure that’s what you’re all saying. I researched some nautical-inspired fashions online (I KNOW! Again, this blog is like legit now) and ELLE told me to buy a $6,000 Hermes leather shoulder bag (that wasn’t that cute), a $1,625 Chanel bracelet (that looked like it was made of cheap plastic) and a $33,000 Rolex watch! Uhhh, no thanks. How am I supposed to afford all of these things? OH WAIT! This blog is about me being inspired by these inspirations (that sounded dumb… inspired by inspirations), so I need to be crafty. According to the sites that I researched, I need things that are red, white, have stripes, rope, chains and anchors. And fishies. Uh duhhhh.

So today I wore a cheap (well, not cheap, I’m not POOR okay!) an inexpensive nautical themed outfit.

Look at this cute girl, ready to go clam hunting!

Clam hunting? Clam digging? Who looks for clams anyway unless you’re the stars of “The Deadliest Catch?” I think they catch lobster. WHATEVAH. So this photo was taken by Ben (yes, the same Ben who was called white trash by Pat in the previous entry and the same Ben whose head I stared at a few weeks ago) before our media relations class (except not really because I didn’t have to go until 11 and this was taken at 10. Grrr). I tried a few poses but that freaking horizontal striped shirt made me look wide. *tear* So I had to do this side pose thing so I could hold my ribs and you could all see that I can wrap my hand around my torso. From that angle this shirt makes my boobies look big, ‘sup fellaz? (That was two boob comments in two posts. NO MORE).

Anyway… as you all may know, that is my roommate Matt’s shirt (I did not ask permission, good thing he doesn’t read my blog! Ass. Again good thing he doesn’t read my blog because I called him an ass for not reading it!). It is red striped, just like a pirate or a person who lives in Boston and goes boating. Or something. Those are my new~* boyfriend fit jeans from American Eagle (I know it’s kind of a juvenile brand, but they had a buy one, get one half off sale and so I got two pairs of jeans for $60!) and my new~* shoes from Urban Outfitters. I swear, I look like I should be shell collecting on the beaches of Nantucket (is that place real or just a fairy tale?) and eating crab for dinner.

Other than the fact that I was kind of sweaty from the humidity this morning, I love love love those jeans. And I might have a blister on my heel (no support at all with those shoes) but that’s okay! I felt very cute and like I belonged on the eastern shores of the… United States. (Haha. That was the first joke I actually laughed out loud after typing. Except it isn’t really a joke because technically I would fit right in on the eastern shores of the U.S.). But right now I’m looking at my closet and realizing that I don’t own much nautical-esque clothing. So this week will be a challenge but a fun challenge! Are challenges ever fun? Seriously, who looks forward to a “good challenge” unless you’re trying to look impressive? If you like a challenge, you’re lying. LIARS!

I Believe in a Thing Called Love! Or I’m just listening to that song right now…

HEADS UP, YO: I wrote these past two blog entries BY HAND in my media relations class because it was boring and I’m doing this new thing with my S’s and so I’m really into writing these days to see how my handwriting has transformed. If you are girl then you know exactly what I mean! I try to change up my handwriting at least once a year.

So today will be the last day that I wear skirts/dresses/jorts methinks because I am too lazy to shave. I remember this one time my junior year of high school that I didn’t shave from like, December until the Sadie Hawkins dance in March. Is that gross? That’s gross.

Today my H&M floral dress made another appearance because florals are popular at music festivals. (How do I know this? Because I actually RESEARCHED photos from Coachella. This blog is like, legit now!). (I realize there was no reason whatsoever to put the previous statement in parentheses but I love them, so deal). At first I just threw on a scarf to add an accessory and my sweet/cheap/really loud black boots from Forever 21.

I'm going to start posting larger photos so everyone can enjoy my beauty and class and style.

OH WOW. That photo is big. I might make it smaller so… ah, yeah, big pic of me.

After this photo was taken I had to run to class, but instead of going bare shoulders (because it was slightly chilly again, c’mon April!) I grabbed a gray sweater. As Matt and I walked to class I was like, “Oh, we should take some candid photos of me walking,” but then I whipped out my camera because I was totally being serious. (Remember, I like love attention). So look at this fierce photo of me:

So candid. So cute. So modelesque. Tyra would be proud! Except that I'm eating cherry Pull-N-Peel Twizzlers at 10 a.m. (And, yes, this is now my profile picture. HANDLE IT!).

So there’s a photo of me in action. Walking. Laughing. Generally enjoying life being a cute, single college junior. Seriously… boys… date me! (I need to stop using this “joke”).

PS – Like I said I wrote these by hand in class. I had to stare at Ben Harshbarger’s head all day. He has nice hair. I’m creepy.

I’m actually posting the day I wear an outfit.

That title doesn’t make any sense because I always post on days that I wear outfits. I don’t like to blog naked. My windows are always open and my neighbors would see me naked! That would be weird. And if I were to blog naked and I was laying in my bed, my computer would burn me because it gets really hot! And then I would have weird scars. Scars are not cute, unless they are really cool. One time I got shot point blank with a paintball gun and so now I have a cool scar. So just a heads up for all future and current posts – I don’t like to edit my ramblings so you all will get to hear irrelevant (yet awesome) stories about how I got shot by a paintball gun and have a cool scar. But anyway, today I’m blogging about the outfit I’m wearing today. How strange!

As you can see I changed up the layout. The old one was boring and tan, this one is black but with splashes of color! The links change color with every post! It’s like that HGTV show “Color Splash!” Except I am the hostess of this blog and the host of Color Splash is a really flamboyant gay man. To some that might be one in the same I suppose. I love HGTV.

This week, like I said previously and in the new section to the right (where I will let you guys know my fashion choices for the week), I decided to wear clothes inspired by summer music festivals! Today I wore a pink dress (GASP! because I hate my body… wahh I’m self conscious, join the club Amanda, nobody is super confident… are they? wahhh) with a floral button-up shirt over the dress and my gladiator sandals. I feel like I would fit right in at Coachella, which just ended today. Or yesterday? Who cares.

Everyone keeps telling me that they love my witty captions for my photos and so now I have all of this pressure to be witty and I can't take it. AHHH!

Again, I had to wear my sunglasses for the photo (and that doesn’t make me a tool!) but if I were at a fest then natch I would wear sunglasses. Today lots of people said I looked *2 qT* but I can’t decide if they said I looked cute because the outfit is cute or because they aren’t used to seeing me wear fAsHiOnAbLe clothes. So from now on everyone has to compliment me and say that they like my outfit because it’s cute and not because I don’t normally dress cute! OMG I just figured it out… I don’t ever dress that nicely so now everyone is surprised and complimenting me. You jerks!!

Anyway – the button up shirt is H&M, the dress was originally from Urban but I bought it at Gabriel Brothers for cheap (I’m not sure why it was at Gabriel Brothers except there might be a hole somewhere and what if there actually is a hole and it’s on my butt everyone saw my green underwear?!), the sandals are Urban, the sunglasses are Urban and the belt is Old Navy maybe? I mean it’s my normal belt that I wear but since I’m skinny and beautiful, it fits nicely as a high waisted belt. Man I am full of myself.

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!
