Ph. Marlon Capuyan || Shot on location @ The Manor, Baguio City

The boyfriend once asked me what is it about bloggers and that looking-at-the-ground thing when being photographed? I don't know with the other bloggers but my answer to that is this: i am too shy to look straight to the camera especially when there are a lot of people (or worse strangers) around. So i just act as if I don't really care. haha 
Everytime I'm in a public place like a mall for example, I just instruct the boyfriend to  click click click then I just move a little, bend a little or pretend to walk away so as not to be obvious that I am being photographed. S&#t! What can I do I am painfully shy like that. 

At nag-fashion blogger pa ako. Eh gusto ko to eh. Whatever! 

How about you guys, what is your explanation to this generic and fail safe fashion blogger pose? :)

wearing:

Floral coat - thrifted 
Black pleated dress - City of Vintage
Opaque tights - SM
Brown wedge booties - F21
Brown belt - bought from a friend 
Crystal necklace - SM 
Sunglasses - Chris and Berns

i get really awkward, too, when somebody else takes my photos. but when i'm alone w/ self-timer, it's easier for me. except i always run out of poses, so i just smile or fake laugh. hahaha.

btw, that coat is a dream, dred!!! <3

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hate that I can sooo relate to your post but mine is the hair-touching and hand-flipping blogger pose! I just couldn't think of any pose other than that! Hahaha! :))
Alone or not, people watching or not, I really don't care! Hihii!
Bongga ang Baguio outfit! Winter na winter!

Dred, thank you for visiting and you're really religious with the wish list. I am serious with filing a leave just so I can sort some photos, blog and blog hop. I love Baguio but wait 'til you get to Sagada.

Also, I pose face down cause it looks way better. I meant my face. Haha! When in public, I don't get shy. KEVS na! I need to blog! XD


Happy New Year! See you this 2012!

Hi Dred! I sometimes look down but most times I look away. Kunwari wala lang coz I get really shy and awkward. I also get this tingly/nervous feeling (di ko madescribe haha!) when being photographed solo in public.

I love your coat! Bug-at sya? Or is it made of light material? :D

@roanjean: hi dear! the coat is super comfy and warm and it's also lightweight. :)

Ellie said...

Haha that too funny! I totally agree. I feel so awkward looking straight in the camera, so looking away helps sometimes! Love your blog and your style. I'm following. Hope to hear from you soon!
