Comfy cozy

Outfit Details-
Dress: thrifted
Pants: Tilly's
Shoes: Steve Madden
Watch: Fossil

I know I've been wearing blank pants and these shoes for the past a lot of posts but I;m just trying to be comfortable lately and they are the first things I go to when I wanna be comfy so yea. I'm kinda stressing with the loads of homework I've gotten already so I spend most of my time in class or doing homework so I just need to be really comfortable, ya know? But anyways I hope you all are having a great week.
This dress I'm wearing is probably the best thing I have ever bought. Especially considering it was only 9$. I found it on my birthday while shopping in a small town with my mom and before I even saw the price I knew i had to have it. It's super comfy and the material is really nice and I dont know i just love it. hehehe =]

home for the weekend

Outfit Details-
Sweater: Anthropologie
Shirt: Forever 21
Highwasted Pants: UO
Bag: Fossil Outlet
Shoes: Steve Madden

So I went home this weekend for labor day. I wasn't originally going to come home from school this quick but everyone was going home on campus so i decided i would visit home. I went home by train and it was quite confusing because I had to take two different ones to get where I needed to go. I got a little lost and it took a little longer than expected but I successfully got home. I met up with zee boyfriend in Philly and we did a bit of shopping. I got this sweater on sale at anthropologie. They had SOO much cute things on sale, winter/fall stuff included so I'd advise you to go to the one nearest to you and take a look.
The second day I was home everyone wanted to feed me (I haven't been eating much here at school due to gross food and lack of food for vegetarians) so Brian took me out for lunch then my parents took me out for dinner. I was so stuffed by the end of the day.

Any way, college has been getting a little better. Im still not completely used to living here but i guess that will just come with time. Thanks to everybody for their supporting comments.

home again

Outfit Details-
Shirt: Free People via Loehmann's
Belt: thrifted
Shorts: urban
bracelet: lucky brand via plato's closet

So I am back from the beach. I had SO much fun even though it rained most of the time. Brian and I went mini golfing then to an arcade the first night we were down. I got three holes in one! But I'm no good at mini golf it was all luck. At the arcade we played deal or no deal except the prize was tickets instead of money. It was so fun. We love to watch that show because the people on it are so crazy and have so much personalty, it's quite entertaining. So we put on a little show for all waiting to play the game and we made exciting gestures when we picked good cases and booed when we picked bad ones. We ended p getting 215 tickets! Which was actually a bad deal because we had the case with the most tickets you could receive which was 400 tickets. I got a mini shoe keychain with the tickets and we had tons more tickets left after that so we gave them away to this little girl. She flipped out when we gave them to her. She ran around the arcade with the tickets draped around her screaming. It was too cute. Then to end the fun filled night we watched Alice in Wonderland and ate peach pie. Fun fun fun.

I didn't take any pictures because it rained pretty much the whole time. I'll try to get back to doing regular outfit posts although it will be hard because I'm getting ready to move away in less than a week!

Outfit Details-
PANADA tank: forever21
Skirt: tanger outlets
Shoes: Payless
Necklace: Juicy
Headband: American Apparel

I woke up feelin pretty sassy today (despite the fact i knew it was a cleaning day). So i dressed the part. As I was going through old CD's to play while I cleaned I came across my beloved N*SYNC. It was their very first album back when Justin still had those frosted tip curls. Haha, oh the hair styles of the 90's... I remember I'd obsess over how cute Justin looked on the bed of the tearin up my heart video as he sang to me through the television screen. I watched this dvd as i was folding clothes of some of their hit videos from when i was little and it reminded me of how cheezy the late 90's were. The best video was the this i promise you. I couldn't stop laughing at first. They had all the boys walking around in the forrest in turtleneck sweaters while singing and playing with bubbles... haha. I think their producers were trying a bit too hard to show Justin's sensitive side. But by the end of the video, oddly enough, I was falling for Justin's charm. HORRIBLE i know... Okay enough with this nsync rant.

But anyways, I wont be posting any time soon because I'll be leaving for the Pocanos tomorow. Wo0o00O!!! I'll probably take a lot of pictures and ill try to do one or two outfit shoots while I'm there. Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!

Outfit Details:
Bandue (spelling?): Loehmans
Dress: Urban, a christmas gift from my step dad a few years ago

So I have not been doing much at all these last few days so I haven't really been wearing much clothes, which is why I haven't been doing much outfit posts. I just stay around the house all day drawing and playing outside with my puppy until my very short work shift at five. I have been enjoying all the time to myself although it's starting to get rather boring. My mom's on jury duty and brian has been preparing for this big show (he's opening for swimming with dolphins) leaving me all alone. Thank goodness I'll be going away soon again. I'm going to Brian's pocano house again. I can't wait to relax and swim in the lake! Hope you all are having a more exciting start to you week than I am!

clouded, originally uploaded by amanda lynn?.

View here please! It looks much better.

I was supposed to do a photo shoot with this dance company today but there was a mix up. Still craving to take some photos, i decided to do a self portrait. As I expressed in my previous post I'm weary about moving away (although all your comments really did help me feel better and I really appreciate you all!). I've been feeling confused, scared, excited, and so many other emotions it's a weird feeling. So the title I thought would be "Clouded" due my confusing and mixed emotions. I used the double exposure effect to create an illusion that my face is clouded. How i did this was I took a picture of myself then of a sheer white curtain and the curtain was fuzed over top of the photo of myself. Then I did some soft focusing effects in photo shop and added a bit of cooler tones.

lovely lovely summer

Outfit Details:
Tanktop- Hand-me-down from a friend
Lace top- target
Skirt- Free People via Plato's Closet
Shoes- UO
Headband- Made by myself
Necklace- Some shop in Arizona

So I went shopping yesterday!! For the first time in a long time, well a long to for me at least which is about a little over a month I'd say. I bought mostly fall clothes so you probably will not be seeing me wearing them for a while due to the horrible heat.

I will be moving out of my house for the first time ever in my life in three weeks and I am freaking out just a bit. It's just a weird thought. And I'm not too sure of how college dorm life will treat me but I have a feeling I won't be to fond of it. I'm most likely having a three person dorm room, which is the same size as a two person dorm but with more furniture and one more person. GAHHH. I haven't even received my roomates yet which makes me more nervous. This summer has gone by SOOO fast. Way way to fast.

Lazzy day

Outfit Details:
Shirt- Jcrew
Shorts- UO
belt- thrifted
Shoes- I forget but they were only 6$
Headband- American Apparel

This is me on a lazy/casual day. I was mostly cleaning and such today. I think I only left my house to go food shopping for my mom and I made a quick visit at my boyfriend's house.

My mom and I are starting a little ebay business to get rid of some unwanted things we have that are worth a bit more money than we can get at a garage sale. So far I'll be selling a coach hand bag and a crazy pair of nike's. I used to love crazy sneakers. Haha, oh have times changed.

Photo shoot!

Meet the lovely Elona, the model for my shoot today.

With this shoot I just wanted to concentrate on lighting. I wanted really bright and natural kind of photos. I'm lacking creative idea's for shoots these days but I still need to practice so I thought that would be a good way to keep up with shooting.
Elona was very easy to work with I barely had to direct her, she is a wonderful model.
And now on to what she is wearing...

Outfit Details:
Cardigan- J Crew
Cami- Express
Skirt- Charlotte Russe
Shoes- Liz Claiborne
Watch- Fossil
Earrings- Old Navy

My next shoot will be more involved and creative. Or at least I hope so. I'm already starting to think of some ideas as I was editing these photo's.

DIY and pandas!

excuse the weird look, the train was coming

Outfit details:
Shirt- Banana Republic outfit for 5$!
Skirt- UO for 10$
Shoes- UO
Necklace- made by myself, better image of it down below

So, the necklace I mentioned in my previous post was actually 175$, not 275$, but expensive none the less. This is the necklace from Free People:

And here is my 25$ version. The neat thing with this is you can change the necklace whenever you want. All I did was simply pin and clip the pendant to the chain and vwa-la! You can change the pendents and ribbon to match your outfit and what not too. Once I get more broaches and things I would like to change it a bit.

I was feeling quite down today. So my boyfriend and I took a trip to Philly and I purchased this lovely thing to perk myself up. I've always been a HUGE panda lover so this fit in well with my collection. Isn't it just so cute =] Panda's could just perk up anyone's day and if they don't you have no soul. Hehe not really, but how could you resist they're cute liddle faces without smiling.

my beloved boots

Outfit details:
Shirt- Hand-me-down from a friend
Dress- Free People, a gift from zee boyfriend
tights- A christmas gift (my mom gave me a HUGE box filled black with tights)
Vintage roper boots- Etsy
Belt- Nordstrums

It's not quite cool enough for tights and boots but I was dying to get back into my boots. They are that one thing in my closet I could never part with. Even if they get so beat up that I could no longer wear them I'd probably still keep them. Im not sure even exactly why. I guess you could say we have been through a lot together. I don't know... Is this weird? Do any of you have odd attachments to a piece of clothing?

kimono love

Outfit details:
Kimono dress- Etsy
Shoes- Benjamin Lovell's
Hair piece- was once my grandmother's
Jade bracelet- a gift from my aunt bought in China
Other bracelet- Plato's Closet, Luckybrand

I just love freely receiving vintage items passed down from my grandmother. It's the best kind of vintage! =]

Today I made a necklace made purely of vintage charms, pendants, earrings, and broaches that I've been collecting for quite some time now. I was inspired but a necklace I saw from Free People. Their necklace was $275. And well mine coast about $25. I'll show a comparison photo later this week.
