My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

It’s January 1st. That means one thing… time for my annual bloopers and outtakes post!

Keith, earlier this week: This will be the first year you won’t have published a bloopers and outtakes post, won’t it?

Me: You’re JOKING, right?! OF COURSE there’ll still be a bloopers and outtakes post! It’ll take more than a pandemic to stop THAT baby from going ahead, pal…

Keith: ⊙﹏⊙

NOTHING – and I mean NOTHING – stops the annual bloopers and outtakes post. Nothing. Unless there were no bloopers, but the chances of that happening is kinda slim, amirite?

 

[Reading time: 3 mins]

 

Despite there being a lot fewer outtakes simply because I had a mini, rather half-arsed semi blog sabbatical during the main part of lockdown and The Year That Was 2020 (and therefore fewer outfit posts), there were still photos that shouldn’t see the light of day.

But just because they shouldn’t see the light of day, doesn’t mean they won’t, does it…?!

I’ll let you get on and take pleasure from my pain, the photos that prove it’s all smoke and mirrors (and often just a case of simply the right angle), as we wave a goodbye/good riddance and stick two fingers up to 2020 – and welcome in 2021 with open arms. This year I promise to produce better (or is that worse?) bloopers than ever before.

Happy New Year everyone!

 

Which blooper is your favourite? Tell me in the comments (and here’s wishing us all a much better 2021)!

 

Stay safe XOXO

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

1. The one where I was afraid you’d see the top of my pop-socks

The dreaded pop-sock slippage! God forbid you see that those things have slipped all the way down to my ankles… Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

2. The one where I was possessed by an invisible demon

Either possessed, or batting away something that made me (literally) need eyes in the back of my head. Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

3. The one where I was lamenting the amount of food I ate at dinner

I never learn: the number of times I run out and do a photo shoot straight after dinner. The necessitation of tummy suckage is inevitable. Original post >>

4. The one where I possibly regretted my decision to bring back the bowler hat

Was this a mistake? Should the bowler hat stay or should it go? Can we pretend like it’s 2011 all over again? Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

5. The one where I was more interested in what was “over there”

Whatever it was, it sure made me look (Keith ALWAYS misses these things, hence my LOOK, LOOK, OVER THERE! face). Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

6. The one where I was just going to give up, because what’s the point

Probably the end of a long day and fading light, I seem to be losing the will to live. I was probably shouting at poor Keith =wince= Original post >>

7. The one where I fell asleep on the job

Not sure how as I seem to remember being FREEZING when I took my coat off, but that’s the face of someone who needs sleep. Original post >>

8. The one where I was Drunk Again

If I wasn’t asleep I was definitely doing my Hur hur gimme another glass of rosé face. Original post >>

9. The one where I was absentmindedly doing my chest exercises

Never mind photo shoots, a girl’s gotta get her exercising in whenever she can. Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

10. The one where I was disgusted by it all

Now that’s a “Nope” face if ever I saw one. Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

11. The one where I was even more disgusted by it all (and walked off)

I take it back: THIS is the ultimate “Nope” face. Plus mic-drop. Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

12. The one where I tried to look as awful as humanely possible

The blank expression. The double chin. The weird hands thing. The terrible posture. It’s all here. Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

13. The one where I was trying to understand the mechanics of my brain

Don’t mind me, just demonstrating how all the cogs and wheels of my noodle work. Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

14. The one where I thought I’d hold my breath and scrunch up my face

Not breathing and screwing up one’s face does not a flattering expression make. Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

15. The one where something about my scarf was absolutely horrifying

I don’t know what on earth could have been so utterly awful about my scarf, but it sure horrified me for some reason. Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

16. The one where I realised my touch screen gloves weren’t touch screen at all

Swipe. Swipe. Swipe. Swipe – SWIPE, goddammit!! Original post >>

 

My 2020 Fashion Blogger Bloopers and Outtakes: Not Dressed As Lamb, Over 40 Style

17. The one where it looked like I was trying to strangle the dog (I WASN’T!!)

Poor Suki was obviously not very happy about being coerced into having her photo taken (I don’t know who looks more awkward here). JUST LET ME OUT THE CAR AND WALK ME, WOMANOriginal post >>

 

Pin for later!

    These are brilliant – so good to see. You normally look so fab it’s funny to see some of the expressions. I think invisible demon is the best.

And you are SO right–there is NO WAY goofy looking photos can be avoided. I have LOTS of them!! Lol! Happy new year! Humor is a great way to face this new year.

      hehe it’s what we’ve always said in our family for someone who’s had their picture taken with eyes half open, Lucy – “mum’s drunk again!” πŸ˜‰

    Haha, so fun, Catherine! I love blooper posts and have some doozies of blooper photos myself, but I never can find the time to compile them all in one place! Perhaps this year I need to start saving the best blooper shots in a separate folder. I love your sense of humor, my friend! For without that, we don’t have much in this crazy world! Wishing you and Keith and Suki all the best in the new year!

      Thank you lovely Shelbee – I add to them a bloopers folder as I edit each photo shoot, so they build up naturally throughout the year. Saves A LOT of work come the end of the year! Sending best wishes back atcha xx

    No 8 (I have a few like this one) and concentrating in no 16 made me chuckle. Happy New year to you Catherine. Let’s hope things begin to improve soon.

    I LOVE these every year! It’s so reassuring that even you have these photos – thanks for sharing, and thanks, as always, for your honesty, transparency, compassion and total Boss-Queen-ness, all at the same time. You’re a big inspiration for me starting a blog in 2020.

      Aww bless you lovely Mary Katherine – thank you!! I guess I’m a hoarder of sorts – even of bad photos – so SOMETHING’S gotta be done with them, lol!

  18. 1 January 2021 / 3:36 pm

    I love the photo of you possessed by an invisible demon. But also the photo of you wondering what’s the point and the photo of… OK! really I just love them all because they remind me that we all look weird sometimes. Hahaha!
