i'm actually not pigeon-toed by the way

vintage slip (clothes contact in the mission), vintage duffle coat, vintage oxfords

Am I the only person who feels self-conscious about being photographed by another person? I don't think I mentioned this before but I finally bought a remote (along with the aforementioned lens) which I thought would facilitate this whole outfit photo process. Unfortunately that involves limiting myself to areas in and outside of my apartment where I can lug around a tripod without being seen by so many people. Okay, I honestly haven't had the time to try it yet but for the most part, due to my inability to focus well enough with self-timer, I've had to ask my friends to take my photos for me. Half of the time they come out but the other half they're just not good enough but I'm afraid to ask for more. I'll take what I can get anyway.

Even now, however, I can't keep a straight expression when someone else is taking my photo, hence the not-so-fierce goofy expressions that naturally grace my face on a daily basis. You see that second photo on the right? I'd call that a more accurate representation of what the people around me see everyday (rat's nest hair included). What else is there to say? I bought this slip from Clothes Contact in the Mission and layered it over another slip and a crinoline from Anthropologie for a little extra bounce. This remind me of that Rodarte x Target that everyone has, except I wasn't really in love with the original... I don't really know why but I wasn't very motivated to buy anything. I'm really obsessed with mustard at the moment and can't get enough! I love the details at the top, I wish I'd taken a photo without the coat. Today was such a nice day, too.

i love your outfit, and the last picture... absolutely adorable! :)

Rosa said...

What a beautiful smile :)
But seriously totally love your oxfords

Fabulocity in Amish Country said...

You look gorgeous!! :) Love the outfit!

KittyCate said...

Your so-called "goofy" faces always look sweet and pretty to me. Loving this outfit too! x

Lorena said...

Hahah I'm uncomfortable with people taking me photo too, which I suppose it why I very rarely have photos of myself on my blog. I love the color of your slip!

Mani said...

you have such nice clothes! btw i love your goofy face ahaha

Unknown said...

your goofy faces set you apart from the sea of bloggers out there - it makes your blog much more entertaining to visit than those with moody stares off into the distance. love the toggle coat (still) and i like that you took inspiration from rodarte but still put your own vintage twist on it.

Madeline Veenstra said...

So cute :) I'm the same, can never let people take photos of me without pulling a silly face!

Ohh I am very shy when it comes to pictures and that's why I don't have any outside pictures in my blog. I feel soo silly! And I hate people looking at me! But I'm still gonna try to take pictures outside my home! You look super cute! I love your smile!

the desert foxx said...

You are so adorable! And more bloggers need to smile. That vintage slip dress and the jacket are a great match.

I feel too feel awkward asking people to take my pictures-- conceited much?

Tabitha said...

Fantastic pics and I love that jacket. I'm with you on someone else taking my picture. Up until I had ankle surgery I wouldn't even let my husband peek into me taking pictures, but now he takes them for me...I can't wait until I can start taking them on my own again.

Anonymous said...

I just stumbled upon your (really really awesome) blog. Hehe. I love your photos and everything. You're so cute too!

lau-ra said...

love the outfit and these pics look pretty good to me! just wish you'd give up that coat to me ;) if you ever come accross it another one (like that'd happen ^^)... ;) have a good day!

Lisa & Cathy said...

thats such an adorable outfittttttt, well put together. yes it is weird being photographed by someone else! i envy your legs ):

Alex said...

Are you kidding? Your gorgeous hair is actually the first thing I noticed. The light in the 2nd photo gives it a beautiful color

Meg said...

I love your outfit! I tend to look a bit pigeon-toed in photos too.

Emilie said...

This is really cool! I have been searching for find a navy duffel coat but to no avail. Well there was a really cool one at Gap for like forty dollars but unfortunately it was extremely small. Also, aside from liking every piece of this individually, I really like your bag. Where is that from?

Anonymous said...

You look beautiful and the outfit is stunning, especially love the shoes.

Tiny Quirks said...

i'm the exact same way, i feel like i'm sort of being judged and i just get super awkward and shy. but you look fantastic!

angelanace said...

thank you so much for coming back. I felt a little lost without your posts for the past few weeks, haha.

louisiana mei said...

i know exactly how you feel about other people taking your photo. it's just really weird and half the time they dont come out the way you want or arent "blog-worthy" enough.
i love your vintage duffel coat!! i went around japan looking for one like yours but i couldnt find one :(

Kathleen said...

Absolutely love this outfit! It looks amazing and I adore the mustard/peachy/creamy color of the slip!

M. said...

in love with your slip and that coat! so so cute

lovelove, M.

Marla Singer said...

you are adorable!
love the slip dress <3

anon said...

i know what you mean but you look great in your photos. i stand even more strangely when someone else is taking the photo and i don't like to ask for them to re-take it as well!

Sher said...

I feel really self-conscious too when someone else takes pics of me:P

I really love your smile in the last pic, you're so adorable!!


TheMinx said...

monicais said...

Anonymous said...

cute outfit!you look so pretty. i love your hairstyle. you've totally convinced me not to cut my hair and keep growing it out.

Steffi said...

Wow, i love your shoes and your smile is so cute.

Alice said...

Seriously awesome outfit! I love the boots and jacket especially.

I know what you mean about photographs, I can't even look comfortable when it is me taking the picture.

Cindy Van Dyck said...

Fabulous look!


Iulia Romana said...

Love the contrast between the fabrics ~

Release Karma said...

I feel the same way. I'm very awkward and self-conscious when someone else photographs me.
And I don't do outfit blogs, so I can only imagine how awkward it must be to have to do that so often.
I'm glad you do though!
I love the outfit!

Jane said...

Perfect look, as usual! I adore your blog and your pictures... great style, you are really cute!!

Mary Katherin said...

you are such baeautiful and nice)
love your outfit

Anonymous said...

It's alright. I don't like other people taking my photos too. You never really know how it's going to look and none of them are ever photography majors, so. :P

You look cute to matter what though, so don't worry.

Unknown said...

Your STUNNING - such a beautiful smile...
Lovely outfit too, i've got a thing for duffel coats at the mo.
Panda xx
Love your blog!

Sassa said...

i like the shoes :)

Kathryn Sutton said...

I always pull silly faces in photos, I think so that if I end up looking ridiculous at least I can pretend it was on purpose...

Love your outfit :)


Lauren said...

This outfit is so cute, I love that dress.

paulinabelle said...

holly said...

Anonymous said...

Ambypure said...

Love your outfit!

FlashFash said...

I can totally relate about being self-conscious when being photographed by another person. I always look so stiff and faked. But hey, you are totally look cute in those shots taken by other people! Oh, and love your coat, btw :)

Unknown said...

do you curl your hair or does it have natural wave to it? it is so pretty

L. said...

you are definitely not the only one! i feel the same way. i'm in love with the slip. so dainty and adorable.

The Bambina said...

I, too, am a self-concious subject! And my photographer is my mom, for God sake's.
Love the dress. The detailing is beautiful!

beneath the glass said...

Cute outfit! Yeah, I also have problems with people taking my picture, I feel silly and a lot of my pics turn out that way, lol :)

Rita Teo said...

you are so cute!
loving the colour of your dress and your coat button ropey thingo. :D

Adele said...

these are actually really great photos, they look professional. wow.
and you look beautiful, loving your outfit.
don't worry, i'm probably the most awkward-stanced person ever, and i can never be straight faced in photograps without looking like i've just been hit over the head. especially in comparison to me you're doing very, very well.
