Can I just say, taking photos for a blog would probably be so much easier if we weren't in NYC?! Granted New York, and more specifically Brooklyn, is a never-ending maze of amazing backdrops just screaming to be photographed, but for someone still getting used to posing in public, it's also really intimidating.

As if the stares from my judgmental neighbors weren't bad enough, the sneers from the local hipsters waiting for brunch at Pies & Thighs was enough to make me want to run over and bark in their faces to give them something to really talk about. Oh, and of course we encountered one guy who actually stepped in front of the camera lens while Micol was shooting and wouldn't move for a whole minute. Not sure if he was drunk or just thought he was really funny. We were not amused.

We did, however, catch the attention of a woman who came over to introduce herself and give us her sister's business card. Apparently, the sister owns a Brooklyn-based tights company and loves collaborating with local bloggers, so we can't wait to reach out to her! In the end, I guess that ounce of positivity was worth all the sneers. 



  1. I know that feeling of being intimidated, one of the reasons why I dont pose in public!


  2. YES i know exactly how you feel. This past summer was the first time I really started taking outfit photos..well making my bf take them for me. We usually do it on our block and now since the sun goes down before we get home from work we usually snap them in the morning so I get the school children watching me and the worst is the garbage man sitting in the truck watching. Along with my neighbors...and the most embarrassing was my fitness instructor who teaches a class I go to spotted me taken photos. It weirds me out.I guess not enough to stop me from taking photos. I think I might have slapped the guy who stood in front of the camera lol OOOO brooklyn.

    LOVE the outfit though! Bright colors are my fav and those tights are awesome!

  3. Very hot combination of skirt and tights!! Thanks for your comment in my blog!

  10. Completely agree with being intimidated in public. Some people seem to just find blatantly staring at someone being photographed/into the camera is normal, and continue doing it for about 10 shots until we finally give up and stare back at them. And then those 10 shots can't be used since their face comes up very clearly and is almost the first thing you notice about the photo. Ahh so annoying!

    Anyway fabulous outfit as always. Love the colours! So fresh and bright. Do you want to follow each other? ^^
