Respect the Outfits (Outtakes)

I don't know about the rest of you, but when I put together my outfit posts I will usuall select the best two-three pics from the bunch to use (you know, the ones that make me look as long and lean as my stubby body will allow). The vast majority of the cast-off pics consist of me goofing off or realizing my skirt is tucked into my tights or standing in the one completely dark spot of the house or making a face even a mother wouldn't love - and those suckers usually get deleted straight away.

But as blogging is all about sharing and we're all human, I thought our photo "bloopers" would be a great subject for the debut of my new feature: Respect the Outfits - Outtakes edition. And here in no particular order are the fantastically fashionable ladies who have sent in their great outtakes to share with you:

♦  EE from eek!:

Jeans: Gap
Shoes: B. Makowsky

♦  Tricia from Tricia's Take:

Hat: Sara Felted Wool Clothe by Couture Creations - 2010
Scarf: Anthro's Springing -2009
Shoes: Too Many Cooks Platforms by Seychelles - 2008

♦  Cindy from Closet Comforts:

Top: Kaitlyn Lace
Belt: Urban Outfitters
Dress: Tucker for Target
Belt: Anthropologie High Prairie

♦  Peggy from She Hath Done What She Could:

♦  Lori from lorispeak:

♦  And of course it wouldn't be right if I didn't share some of my own recent outtakes:

Thanks to all you wonderful gals who participated - I really appreciate you all playing along!

And thanks again to Kim, Cat and Aimee for their great reader features and the original inspirations for me in starting this.

I'll be highlighting another subject next week but will certainly come back for some more outtakes later on!


  1. I love this feature! I can get some pretty ridiculous out-takes as well so I'll have to resist deleting them and keep them to the side for your next edition!

  2. I sort of love the one of Jen from vintageglammz. It looks like she's floting a bit.


  3. These are great! I love Cindi's, they don't look like outtakes to me. Good stuff :)

  4. Oh my gosh, these literally made me laugh out loud! Tricia's especially are hilarious! Just goes to show that fashion blogging isn't all glamour and glitz ;). I usually delete my really bad pictures from my camera before I even upload them, so I'll have to stop doing that and send some in to you for the next time - you should really make outtakes a weekly feature, it's great!

  5. These are hilarious - thanks for posting :)

  6. There's no way you cannot keep this going this is the BEST!
    A great way to start the day that is for sure and I am totally willing to participate next go around...just let me know when!

    P.S. This should really be done weekly it is sooo good!

  7. Lisa, The outakes are wonderful. Thanks for incising mine. Lizzy's broken umbrella is hilarious. The look on Loris face is priceless. And the second image of you is goofy to say the least.

  8. LOL - this is great! Please continue. I love Tricia trying to get her little cutie out of the way!

  9. Great feature!!! I'll definitely have to participate next time. Some days I have more outtakes than good photos, although I tend to delete them right off my camera before downloading to my computer!

  10. Hilarious outtakes, and yet everyone still looks so great! Maybe we should start putting outtakes on our own blogs alongside our outfit of the days (: Thanks for including me, and for putting this feature together!! I can't wait for the next edition!

  11. These are so hilarious!!!! I have one to send you for next week!

  12. I LOVE this post! We always see the best pictures, but never see the funny ones.

  13. Oh this is such a fun post! Oddly refreshing! Thank you!

  14. Lisa,

    This is so awesome! and funny. I know I promised to send you my picture but after looking at all these picture I am so glad I didn't!! I could have looked really bad...I mean really.. with all these cute and funny pictures~


  15. Oh I love this idea! I've got tons of outtakes! Yikes!


  16. lol, these are GREAT! I esp love Jen's (vintageglammz)


  17. This is such a WINNER!! What an excellent idea - and what good sports for contributing. When/if I ever get around to taking OOTD shots, I now know there'll be a place for them. LOL ps: Laura? You make me laugh. And the umbrella shot - who knew there were so many funny shots out there? Love this!!!

  18. Too funny!! I can almost hear Tricia saying, "mommy's almost done" as she scoops up her daughter...even though I've never heard Tricia's voice!!

    These are so fun!!

  19. Too funny, these are hilarious!! Please continue to do this it's such a great idea!

  20. Hilarious! This was such a great idea.

  21. Awww Lisa.. I love these "bloopers".. hee hee. I normally just delete mine, so I couldn't find any to submit to you. :( maybe next time.

    I hope you're having a great week so far... and not working too hard.. and finding sometime to play. I'm so ready for the weekend. There's a little festival going on in town, hopefully me and the hub will be able to attend.

    xx Love & Aloha

  22. i love this! makes y'all seem human!

  23. These are so amazing. Thanks so much for starting such a wonderful reader feature. Tricia's made me laugh out loud -- absolutely hilarious!

    I had every intention to contribute an outfit, but when I looked back through my pics, I realized that I must have deleted all my outtakes. Oh well -- I'll be sure to save some for the next time outtakes are featured : )

  24. These are so wonderful and cute! And we do have outtakes here, I really just need to find some, but most of them are not so funny, just outfit stuff completely out of whack or bad lighting. These seem happy though! Which is great! Thanks everyone for sharing and Lisa for putting this together! :)

  25. Too funny!! Love them. Tricia's are a hoot!

  26. Thanks for your great feedback! I appreciate you all liking this feature and really appreciate those who played along!

  35. LOL... I stumbled upon your blog via Anthrosdottir, and this post just cracked me up. I have my share of outtakes, but usually delete them! I'll be sure to save the good ones for the future. Thank you for the laughs, I really needed it today :)
