Rejects: The Best of the Best

Faux fur vest (DIY cutoff sleeves). Urban Outfitters t-shirt and jeans. Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties. Stacey Lapidus headband

Nordstrom jacket. Forever 21 dress. Vintage boots. Bebe belt

Urban Outfitters men’s shirt. American Apparel dress. Steve Madden booties

H&M faux fur jacket. Silence & Noise corset and jeans via Urban Outfitters. Topshop boots. Varga necklace

Zara vest. Urban Outfitters top and boots. American Apparel leggings

These old photos are from the cutting room floor.  I thought it would be fun to show you some of the “rejects” among my outfit photos.  I don’t claim to know what the hell I’m doing when it comes to posing, and thus, many go unpublished due to fug/bad/unbearably cheesy facial expressions.  This is the reason I try to smile in most of my pictures.

And apparently, I’m a fan of the ‘cross your legs’ pose.

Hope you’re all having a fabulous week.  Please don’t forget to join in on my virtual ugly Christmas/Holiday sweater party!  Details are HERE.

xoxo, Becs

    I luuurve the boots, especially the vintage ones! I am not so fashionably risky so I admire people who can get away with all sorts of ensembles.

    I gotta say, these are probably some of my favorites! It’s almost like getting to see a behind-the-scenes of your blog 😉
    So, what makes an outfit blog-worthy for you? What makes you want to take pictures and post them?

      Thanks lady!! I’m in desperate need of new pics, so I figured it would be fun to show off some unpublished ones. Most of the time, all the outfits I take pictures in are ‘blog-worthy’ because they’re either creative (IMHO) in styling/accessorizing or show off a new purchase, but due to my crappy facial expressions/poses I won’t post them. If I don’t stand by something 100%, chances are, the pics won’t see the day of light. 🙂

    You look way cute in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ones! Gotta love the American Apparel figure skater dress! xoxo

    Love that you did a reject post Becs! Because I love these outfits…especially the last one.I dont do a lot of outfit posts either because I feel so awkward or cheeseeeeee! I think it just takes practice, silly me. Anyways,if you decided to cut the sleeves off any blazer I think you would totally be able to rock that. I think I might way to do that until spring….unless I wear a sweater..hmm!:)

    You’re too cute! I still think that these rejects are great, but I understand how you feel because sometimes photos just don’t turn out the way you want it to. Plus posing can be difficult sometimes too.

  28. December 19, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    Love your plaid and the cropped jean jacket outfits! I can’t believe these are your REJECT photos, these would be like my best-of photos hahahah
