Renee and I have decided to begin making quick profiles of our amazing and super stylish friends. Amanda is our first! She is a good friend of mine who I’ve now known for about twenty years. We went to our first concert together (*NSYNC, who else?!) and shared many sleepover nights together as tweens obsessing over the heartthrobs in J-14 Magazine. We’re all grown up now, but one thing has never changed—envy of her amazing hair! These photos will just act as further proof that she needs to be “discovered” as a catalog model.
