what would you do if i sang out of tune? would you stand up and walk out on me?

Today so far has been a VERY eventful Friday! Here are the highlights; Across the Universe, Spirited Away, making collages, taking pictures and... DAH DAH-DAH DAH!!! MY DAD BOUGHT THE HAT. AND I MEAN THEEEEEEEE HAT.

He found this magnificent hat, with a pretty little hat box, at GOODWILL. Ok, so here's the fyi, my family and I are simply addicted to Goodwill, like no joke. I'm serious we make a family trip almost every evening after dinner. Any-who, on to the hat. It's vintage and in WONDERFUL condition. So, of course I had to make an outfit.

And here's a close-up of my shoes. I inherited them from my grandma after she passed. I guess their from the 1800's or something!

Alright, I think that's all for tonight. OH and there's an AU update. As you may or may not remember, AU is my parents business. It is a tee-shirt company that features cute little characters and our signature AU on our designs. For those not in the loop AU is the symbol on the periodic table of elements for gold. And since my family lives in GOLDEN, COLORADO it makes sense. Haha get it? AU Golden, Colorado? Yeahh, its pretty clever. Anyway the big news is AU got a new shipment of American Apparel tee-shirts and started to print on them. So the pink shirt I'm wearing in the picture is one of them! For more information about purchasing any shirts, buttons, stickers or other AU items visit the link at the top of the page. Thanks guys!

Remember the talking flowers in Alice in Wonderland??

Well Karl Lagerfeld, you've done it again! This Springs Chanel Couture Collection has inspired me to be a talking flower when I grow up. And I could really pull it off too, I just need to uhhh grow petals, leaves and a stem. Anyway, I love the sophisticated look. The tailored, well-fitting, black and white pieces make me want to go live in a dark, well-dressed city full of men in Prada suits. And the hats! OH MY GOODNESSSS!

So, here's my version. I know it's not exactly the same but I think I put my own flair into it. OH! And I'm sorry about the poor lighting, it was so windy out today the tripod kept blowing over!!

This is a close-up of the flower clip my mom conveniently had and let be borrow! Wellll, actually she doesn't know that she let me borrow it yet, but when she gets home from work I will inform her! Haha, but really she wont mind, the scarf I'm currently wearing is something I bought and she had for like the PAST 4 MONTHS!! Oh the woes of mother/daughter relationships.

First Post!

HEY, it's my first post! Let me tell you guys a little about me. My name is Madeline, I'm a 14-year-old girl from Colorado. At my school you're fashionable if you wear sweatpants tucked into Uggs, so I decided I needed to change things up a bit. Therefore, I'm new to this, cut me some slack. More about me, I play guitar and sing, and my parents own a cute little business called Au, aka Anderson United. On this blog I'm going to talk about Au, my musical career and my newfound style.
