You can stand under my umbrella for another 6 years...

Yep, that's right, I've been blogging fashion-y things for six years now.

It's been good. It's been bad. Some of it's been ugly. Things have changed considerably around me and inside of me since nineteen year old Amanda Beth decided to become a fashion "expert." Some of the things I wrote in the past completely embarrass me now. Some of the outfits I wore for photo shoots make me want to hit the the "delete post" button. And six years from now I'll probably wish I hadn't posted these wet, bedraggled last-December shots.

But it's all a part of the journey. We live, we learn, we grown and change. It keeps things interesting.

What I'm Wearing:
  • Dress by R&K Originals - thrifted
  • Belt - hand-me-down
  • Tights from Target
  • Pumps by GUESS from Marshalls
  • Umbrella from Target
  • Necklace and Ring - hand-me-downs

Can I just say a big thank you to everyone who still reads the blog? I know my posting has been less than inspired or consistent over the past few years, but the fact that some people still take time to browse my sporadic posts and leave a comment means the world to me.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for these 6 years.

It's a great day for the Irish!

St. Patrick's Day is one of the best days of the year. I love every holiday, but one tied so closely to my heritage which consists of wearing a fabulous color, listening to wonderful music, and eating a favorite meal is extra special.

And this year, I finally get to celebrate it as a redhead. Life is as it should be.

This is the third shade of red that I'm on... you saw the original tint in a few posts here, then it was vibrant red/orange (which you might have spied on Instagram), and three weeks ago we toned it down to more of a brown/auburn shade. But the more I wash my hair, the more the orange underneath peeks through, and when the sunshine hits it, as in these photos, it's still pretty bright.

At least I won't be lost in the crowd.

What I'm Wearing:
  • Teal blouse by Wrapper - hand-me-down
  • Skirt by teeze me - hand-me-down - was originally a dress, refashioned by me
  • Green tights from Target
  • Nude pumps by GUESS - from Marshalls
  • Earrings from Forever 21 in Times Square (bought them last Tuesday)
  • Shamrock necklace - pendant from Joann Fabrics

What are your plans for St. Patrick's day? I've got school, a meeting with a makeup artist I will be working with, and then corned beef and cabbage for supper with my family. It will be nice and low key... got another full week to rest up for!

Enjoy the day! "May you always have a clean shirt, a clean conscience, and a bob in the pocket." ;)

Vogue China - December 2013


The beautiful Sui He photographed by Mario Testino. I love the 50s/60s vibe of the fashions in this shoot... so classic and feminine.

Stay warm and dress pretty! :)
