Who, What, Wear: Everything Is Food

If you haven’t already guessed it by the site of the snow on the ground, this post is a bit late. Not as late as you think… it was actually warm this day, despite the frost. Amanda and I did a few photo shoots since our last style post here, most of them you won’t be seeing… we’re still getting the hang of this. She’s getting used to being in front of the camera and I’m getting used to directing someone to be photographed.

This is one of my favorite of Amanda’s dresses, its perfectly yummy. When she first got it she was a little lost on what to pair with it, but as you can see she’s getting a lot more confident at putting together her outfits. I remember when I met Amanda, back in 2006, she had just graduated high school and always matched from head to toe. If she had on a pink top, her socks were pink… if her top was striped with 4 colors, she had a bangle and earrings to represent each color… she was hilarious. Amanda always looked great, she was just afraid to mix it up.

She’s still a stickler for matching perfectly, she’s just learning how to create teams of colors that go together, rather than all the same colors. This is an important thing for a girl as colorful as Amanda.

Year Four, Month Four. (40/192)

I’d never heard of Foxygen prior to this album, but the moment We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic began to play, I was into it. San Francisco is such a happy and mellow song, it reminds me of that feeling I get when The Beta Bands’ Dry the Rain is playing. Its nothing too in-your-face amazing, but its a solid track. I love it. I’m bobbing my head to it as I type this, you should too.

Also, this video is good times… if not a little seizure-y here and there.
