My 2019 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes

Not Dressed As Lamb Fashion Blogger Bloopers & Outtakes 2019 | The one where I clearly showed the wind's effect on my skirt

The wait is over – the bloopers and outtakes from the last 12 months of Not Dressed As Lamb is here!

[Reading time: 6 minutes]

This is the post that always, always makes me laugh while I’m writing and compiling it – and I’m not ashamed to admit it. It’s the 8th bloopers post in a row and is as much a part of this blog as the weekly outfit posts are. For at LEAST a month before 1st January I have Keith saying to me, “Nearly time for your bloopers post!”, so there’s no way I could possibly stop doing them even if I wanted to (don’t worry, I don’t).

Plus it seems that you guys rather enjoy them from what you tell me… nothing like a bit of schadenfreude for New Year, eh?!

I think 2019 was a vintage year where outtakes were concerned – though I get the feeling Keith tends to goad me into pulling faces or do things simply so he can get a good bad picture, if that’s not too much of an oxymoron.

It’s a little sad as this will be the last year with bloopers involving Riley, though we have a couple of new ones featuring Suki too, so both of my fluffballs make an appearance. And, as always, for each outtake I include my attempt at an explanation for what on earth I’m doing/what is happening in each shot. Though to be fair, for most I have no explanation whatsoever.

Not forgetting – this is your ‘Heavy On The Photos Post’ warning! (It HAS to be photo-heavy though, amirite?)

It’s kind of the last day of Christmas as many people will be returning to work tomorrow (at least in the UK), so I hope these brighten your day and show that fashion bloggers can be some of the most inelegant creatures out there.

Well, at least THIS one is…

WHICH WAS YOUR FAVOURITE OUTTAKE? TELL ME IN THE COMMENTS (AND HERE’S WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY 2020)!

1. The one where I had a hissy fit about something in my eye

I think I was frantically waving at Keith to say Stop shooting while I sort my eye out, but of course he didn’t, did he… Original post >>

 

Not Dressed As Lamb Fashion Blogger Bloopers & Outtakes 2019 | The one where Riley deserved an ear rub

2. The one where Riley deserved an ear rub

I’m so glad Riley makes an appearance. His wandering-right-in-front-of-the-camera was legendary. Original post >>

3. The one where the wind nearly knocked me off my feet

EVERY bloopers post needs at least one wind outtake, and this is a corker. I actually remember Keith laughing as soon as he took the shot, knowing it was one for 1st January the following year. Original post >>

 

Not Dressed As Lamb Fashion Blogger Bloopers & Outtakes 2019 | The one where I just couldn't cope with the cold

4. The one where I just couldn’t cope with the cold

I think I was just DONE with the (very minimal) snow and low temperatures, and probably regretting my decision not to wear gloves for the shoot. Original post >>

5. The one where I was seeing triple

Yep, by this time the cold had clearly affected my brain. Original post >>

Not Dressed As Lamb Fashion Blogger Bloopers & Outtakes 2019 | The one where Riley stood right in front of the camera lens

7. The one where Riley stood right in front of the camera lens

This one needs some context: Keith goes to take a low, close-up shot and of course Riley ‘does a Riley’ by standing RIGHT in front of the camera. You can just about make out his black and white fur, bless our gorgeous boy. Original post >>

Not Dressed As Lamb Fashion Blogger Bloopers & Outtakes 2019 | The one where I wondered how long till the sun would go back behind the clouds

13. The one where I wondered how long till the sun would go back behind the clouds

I do a LOT of gazing upwards on days where we have sunny intervals – trying to get consistent light is so difficult. Do we shoot in all sun? Or all shade? Which will we have most of?! Aaaargh so many decisions! Original post >>

    The ones with Riley & Suki go straight to my heart. I have my own canine photo bomber. But of the others #6 is my favorite. Iโ€™ve had the urge to do power walk poses. LOL! Really though, they are all funny! Thanks for sharing!

    Such a funny selection of bloopers and it’s great that you have a sense of humour enough to reveal them! Lovely to see Riley there , and of course Suki slinking in at number 34 is sweet…..23 is excellent but my favourite might be the bewildered elves in the last shot!! Thank you and Happy New Year to you all.

    Always such a great post! Honestly, I like the Mary Poppins pose! In fact, I may be guilty of doing the Poppins hands on occasion. I think it looks cute. But maybe it doesnโ€™t and I just look foolish! But add in the Poppins feet and you are really onto something! Thanks for the chuckles! Wishing you all the best in the new year, my friend!

    My favorite post of the year, Catherine! #23 is the winner, hands down, but they are a great collection. It’s also a great collection that what we see on blogs and IG are carefully curated, and NOT what people look like all day, every day. They are for inspiration, and even if we dutifully buy every piece, we are NOT going to look exactly like the model, nor SHOULD we! Thanks for the great work, and I’m looking forward to what you come up with for 2020.

    Another year and another great set of funny photos, it’s hard to pick a favourite as they are all as equally good in their own way. It’s refreshing to see blog posts like this because it’s always good not to take ourselves to seriously sometimes and it’s a great way to make us all laugh. I can’t wait for next years already.

    O Catherine, what a great way to start the New Year. You have given me SUCH a laugh with your bloopers, especially the one where you were seeing triple. It is a classic shot & I am still chuckling over it. What a GREAT sense of humour you possess. To be able to laugh at oneself & not be precious about oneself is a great attribute, which not everyone possesses, more’s the pity. You & Keith are the loveliest couple (& he is gorgeous). I love your sense of colour which chimes completely with mine, except for blue which I never wear as it doesn’t suit me. I love the clothes you model in your blogs, specially combinations of strong colours like purple & orange together, so artistic & striking with your red hair, although, funnily enough, my favourite outfit was the one you wore in Prague which was all creams & neutrals.Go figure!
    I wish you, Keith & Suki a Happy & Healthy New Year & I look forward to all your blogs to come in 2020.

    I love these photos. We are all capable of having bad photos taken of us- phew!
    I just took some straight-on photos of myself and I’m so crooked: my shoulders slant one way, my hips the other way and my head is angled a third way. I thought I was standing up straight, shoulders down, ” tits up”! Now I can laugh at my photos, knowing everyone has are bad photos . THANK YOU!
