People are so weird

Tuesday, February 22, 2011
This morning was such an awkward day to take pictures. I had two people watch me while Chase took these...not the normal three second stare and then looking away but the awkward one where they keep staring as they walk by then turn their head and stare at you past their shoulder as they walk away. Seriously? Can you be any more creepy?!?

RECAP:  I asked you guys here for two more outfits to justify this cardigan purchase with my three outfits rule and I got so many ideas - thank you! Two outfits down, one more to go until this cardigan can be honorably inducted into my closet. You're not welcome yet, cardigan.

A reminder for the late birds... I've got a giveaway going on right now for $25 to spend at Smashion. It's like an online thrift store but better. Follow my blog with bloglovin' for a gazillion extra points...and by a gazillion I mean one.

  2. They were probably staring because they thought you were a professional model.

  5. This outfit is awesome. It looks killer with the trench. I love that the skirt to your dress has a little body. I always buy dresses thinking they will have that nice flowy body but then they never lay right. I bet the cardigan and belt actually make the skirt seem more flowy. I might just have to try this out. Love it!

    As for those starring, I agree with Jane, they probably thought you were a model.

  13. OMG. I'm so glad you talked about the weird starers! I rarely do outfit photos in populous areas, but I tried this past weekend, and got so many stares! I was wondering how other bloggers did it and thought I was the only one getting weird looks. Nice to know it happens! :)
    PS. I love those shoes!!

  19. I haven't taken pics around other people yet because I'm self-conscious about it still. I don't I could handle those creepers.

    Love those shoes! They are perfect for this outfit!

  23. What a cute dress! And now you know why I'm not taking pictures outside when people are looking! LOL!

  24. You really have the best shoes.

    I'm not brave enough yet to take pictures anywhere but my backyard. Too scared of passersby!

  25. Ugh, people are so annoying sometimes, I really hate it when they do that! In good news, I love this outfit!! It's perfectly styled!

  26. Those mary janes are absolutely presh!!!

    Also, when two attractive people manage to make it out of their dwelling in the morning wearing more than pajama pants and slippers, you're going to have to expect staring. When they see your hubs taking pics of you, they are probably trying to figure out if you're the girl that won America's Next Top Model!

  27. Were these "people" males? Because then it's not surprising they would want to stare at a pretty lady :) This is partly the reason why I don't take outfit photos outdoors - I don't want people looking at me funny haha :P

  28. That dress is too cute for words. So,

  30. thanks for the smashion tip, never heard of it before! i still feel a little awkward taking pics in public I wonder what they think I'm doing...lol!

  31. They were probably just trying to visually memorise your great ourfit. If only they knew that you had a blog, they could have popped by and had a detailed look.

  32. That shirt dress is awesome! I love it, and I can't believe its thrifted, now I'm really envious.

  37. What creepers! On the other hand, they're probably staring because the outfit is so freakin awesome. I really love the cardi over the dress!

  45. I love it! Haha ya people are creepy like that haha! My dad being a people watcher himself :)

  46. I'd probably be one of those creepers. {I'm from a small town, I am practically REQUIRED by law to stare at strangers.} I'd also run up to you, and say something like, "ELAINE!! It's me. Megan! I am always astounded by your resourcefulness....oh, and your dress is fabulous. K, bye."

    ReplyDelete
  47. You can just say to people staring next time, 'Uh, I'm doing a fashion shoot, for my blog'! In a snotty tone of voice. Well, maybe not snotty. But in a why-are-you-staring-at-me kind of tone.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love your belt and your shoes! Sorry about the people staring, weirdo's!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Awesome look - love the cardi & dress pairing - looks great together :)
    I always wonder how little imagination people must have to look so shocked and confused seeing someone take photos. I've noticed it not only when I do outfit shots but also just generally snapping anything even slightly out of the ordinary. Bless 'em. They're missing out.

  50. Love the olive cardigan with the blue dress, perfect!

  51. you look gorgeous§!kiss from prague

  52. haha if I saw someone taking outfit photos I would go say hi, especially to you!

    My photo shoots bring all the bloggers to the yard, and their like "My camera's nikon," and I'm like "Um okay? Thats fine." haha

  53. Cute outfit, I love those shoes so much, adorable! :)
