i know all the games you play

song of the day: 'faith' by george michael
so i have way more to talk about today! aren't you glad?
first off this little pink number will be making it over to the shop possibly today. it's so cute and fun! i love the layer of tulle underneath to make it flair out a bit. not terribly sure if it was originally meant as a slip or not, but wearing undergarments as regular clothing is all the rage these days so why not, eh? since it's a bit big on me i had to tie it up with a belt, but i like how it gave it sort of a paper bag waist. it's so very cute though.
i am in such a wardrobe slump right now. i don't know what it is but i'm just not happy with most of what i've been putting together and i end up wearing an old standby. that's why i'm cheating by showing you things that are going in the shop. sorry, i know it's kinda lame but i have basically hated all things i've worn over the last few days. you ever get that way? is it just me? ugh.
so, yesterday paige (barefoot & vintage) sent all people running to urban dictionary to find out what your name really means. well, i did it. and for the most part, i found the definition to be fairly accurate.
A women named Amanda is typically very beautiful with an incredible body and nice eyes. They are known to be very loveable. Amandas are envied by other women.
1. Damnnn, Amanda's lookin' fine today, as usual.
2. I wish I was Amanda, shes so pretty and nice!
The most awsome event, person, or place.
That party was so Amanda!
A woman who doesn't take shit from anyone, even her own parents. She does things her way when she wants where she wants how she wants with who she wants
i love lucy's attitude. it's an amanda attitude.
not sure about this one though
Most have a nice and big butt. They grow into their boobs and are really sweet and kind. You could never stay mad at an Amanda. They are loveable and kind. They never miss a chance to say sorry for anything. Everyone loves Amanda.
Amanda's so pretty and kind.
ha! you got to go do this if you haven't yet!

They don't have my name over at urban dictionary :(
Love the pink skirt!
And I think it's just fine you're showing us things from the shop. Everyone goes through wardrobe ups and downs!

"They grow into their boobs" that's really pretty creepy when you think about it.. like someone had watched an Amanda from her prepubescent stage until she matured into an adult and noticed that the ginormous boobs she got early on, fit her body in later years. Or that's just my awkward mind seeing that scenario.

I'm with you on the closet disgust. I would offer to trade items.. but we'd be limited to accessories lol. Still..

veronika, tick tock vintage. said...

i'm a little afraid to check mine. veronika is a pretty uncommon name in the states, not so much in europe - and there's a famous porn star named veronika. whenever i image search my name, i get lots of naked blonde ladies.

You look great. My favorite looks are the ones in which people wear the usual stuff, but in a different color combo or with neat unexpected accessories, I like this a lot. the gray tank, the way u tied the skirt (very creative) and brown booties (unexpected).That's what gets my creative juices charged :)

What an adorable little skirt. It looks so light and airy I just love it!

I did check mine today and it was overwhelmingly positive! I was like, hey, there has to be some bad shit said about my name somewhere, but they were like near the end after like 28 other super nice things and none were very funny except the ones that said I was sort of a whore. but just sort of. this skirt is really cute by the way and I love that paige has us all checkin out names. the examples of how the name is used in a sentence is pretty funny. Amanda is so pretty and kind.
