 Gap jacket (last seen here), Gap denim jacket (DIY'ed), H&M tank, Le Chateau skirt (last seen here), 
pashmina & socks, unknown boots, Suzy belt, Aldo necklace & Michael Kors bracelet

I seem to be one of those people that others like to strike up a conversation with.  I'm not sure what it is, but it happens all-the-time.  And I'm so 'nice' I just go with it, and will end up having full conversations with strangers so as to not be 'rude'.  What's up with that?  I mean, if we want to get morbid, typically women can be victimized based on that quality, so it's always something to keep in the back of your head, but, back to what I was saying... so while shooting this outfit, thinking I was in a fairly desolate place, sure enough an older man comes walking out from behind this building with his miniature dog.  First he looked at me, then he was just plain staring, and by the time he got close he must have felt that urge that people feel when they see me, he just had to strike up a conversation.  He started slewing out facts about what the building I was standing up against used to be (a mink farm), and how much they used to pay in rent monthly ($10k), and how this one family owned it for years (since the 1800's).  All the while I politely smiled and nodded and acted very interested.  Meanwhile, I was actually freezing as I'd taken off my overcoat at this time and it was only 4 degrees Celcius.  He finally walked away and I jumped back into my heated car and drove off.  Sheesh.

How fab is this green wall?  I was heading to the graffiti wall and this
is on one end of the same building (freshly painted) so I totally took advantage.

great outfit, head to toe. especially love the necklace. and i'm a big fan of the denim jacket as a wardrobe piece vs. an item that keeps me warm.

i too am a meet-a-stranger-and-end-up-in-a-random-conversation gal. i used to think it was ME but after reading your post i realize that NO, it's actually them.

green wall rocks. just discovered you blog. look forward to reading more...

Very cool, I love these photos, they caught my attention on my blog feed.

I love you outfit, I'm using it for inspiration!

Creepers always feel the need to talk to me too. ugh

Love this outfit, and the photos are awesome!! Too funny about the old man! I hate getting caught taking outfit photos, but it's even worse when they try to strike up conversation!

Not going to lie I am the opposite. People look at me and then run away. I have a perpetual 'death stare' or so I've been told. But in reality I'm very nice.

Love the green wall . . . I am tempted to paint the side of my house a fun colour just so I can get pictures this cool. lol

Also, did I ever tell you that after I saw the belt you are wearing now (in a past post I mean) I went on a hunt for it. I found one at Aldo and it's probably my fave belt. I steal many of your ideas. Please be flattered and not weirded out!

You had loads of wonderful layers on here. It took me a while to work out the order. Loving the wall and that first photo is so fun.

I normally end up with people chatting to me when I'm doing photos. I suppose, for them, it makes an unusual situation more normal. And you get some great information. Although that's not so good when it's almost freezing. The things we do for fashion.

Don't miss my first ever giveaway

Love the green wall. It's the best feeling when you find a great place to take an outfit pic :)

Happy Saturday!!

Schnelle said...

great outfit. I love the necklace!! I seem to be one of those people too. This customer told me the whole story of her and her husband- how they met, their marriage, etc. It was a sweet story but I thought to myself after she left, "wow, does she tell every random stranger this much info."
