Grey is the new Blonde.

I found this great photo in one of my favorite magazines, Dansk Magazine. Even though it is from an older issue, it is still one of my favorites. I was so inspired by this shoot that I decided to do my own illustrated version of the photo. I also liked the article that went along with it. If you haven't read it yet, you should. It discusses how glamorous silver and grey hair is and interviews models, editors and the like that sport it [naturally or not]. I can only hope that I too will be able to enjoy this silver shade of hair at one point in my life... Enjoy!




Mags Galore

I have bought a whole new stock of magazines over the last couple of weeks. Browsing magazines is one of my favorite past times and recently I just haven't been able to pass them up! Everything from V Magazine to Bazaar to a random Italian-based magazine that comes out once a year - I've snatched them all up! I will be posting some of my favorite spreads on here within the next day or so to share what I think are the most interesting shoots/clothes from the pile. There may even be a sketch or two to go with - So get excited.


On another note, by now the new website design is up and running so I hope that you have all had a chance to look around and enjoy it. I wanted to go with this more streamlined approach and I think that we really nailed it. I worked with website developer and graphic designer Morris Allison. He was a great help and I think he did an exceptional job. So feel free to give any feedback you have, and be sure to check out his site, MotorWave Designs, for all of your own design needs.


Until next time,



Happy New Year!

I hope that you all had a great holiday season and a Happy New Year! Things have been pretty hectic for me the last month or so but it has finally begun to slow down and stabilize. There are a lot of new things in the works for AmandaVogt.com that I'm excited to share with all of you! And there will be a fresh new look to go along with this new year... but I'll let that be a surprise. So stay tuned and be on the lookout for all of the updates!




Combat ready

It's 100 percent official... I've fallen for and personally adopted the combat boot into my wardrobe. AND, I highly recommend that all of you follow suit. Long have I lusted over the combat boot trend... and recently I have been going back and forth on the idea of buying a pair for myself. Just a few days ago I made the leap and splurged on a pair. I fell in love with them as soon as I tried them on! Even though I'm not the tallest person in the world, the boots still look great and I've gotten loads of compliments on them in just the two days I've worn them out. I decided on a black pair that has a sort of "worn-out" look to them - which I love.

Perhaps what I like most about this trend is that it is so different from what we have been seeing in shoes, especially in women's shoes. I like the androgynous feel, the militaristic inspiration, the ability to wear flat, leather boots with a dress or feminine outfit, and I like the laced up, sometimes slouchy appeal that this trend is bringing to the table. The bottom line is that it's different.

I found my boots at, of all places, Aldo in my local shopping mall. And, to my surprise, they actually had a good selection of combat boots to choose from, for men and women. The great thing about these boots is that they are versatile: whether you want to lace them up, lace them down, get them with studs or contrasting laces, let the tongue of the boot flap over or curl the sides down (on both boots or just one), anything really goes - and all options look great! So far, I have preferred to keep mine semi unlaced with the tongue flapping over on both boots. So whether you are looking for a pair of winter or fall boots, or just something new, I would advise you to snatch up a pair now while you still can... I have a feeling that this trend is about to pick up a lot of speed.
