Creepers & Mustaches


You can't really tell in these shots but I'm sweaty. Really sweaty. So sweaty I'm dripping on my forehead. Deliciously attractive, right? I decided to venture outside despite the heat wave. In a housing development nearby my house I noticed a giant pond surrounded by these reeds and I just knew I had to snap some shots with them. I had an urge to poke a few of them but they were too close to the water and the ground nearby wasn't very solid.


Oh, and let me tell you guys, taking pictures near housing developments is a very very very scary thing. You would think it'd be safe, but no. There was this "older gentlemen" taking a walk in the neighborhood. He saw me park my car and he was walking behind me as I made my way over to the lake. He proceeded to watch me from afar. I thought he was just resting underneath a tree for it's shade...but then I realized he was looking in my direction. I pretended to be setting up my camera for the longest time (I snapped a shot of him - see below). Then he moved along, but then stopped at yet ANOTHER tree and continued to stare. Finally after a few minutes he moved along his way. I sighed a huge breath of relief and then started to pose all silly like for photos. I got lost in my picture taking. But then all of a sudden, I turned around just to take a break and HE WAS COMING AROUND THE POND!!!!! Let me tell you, this isn't a pond you hike around. I freaked out and snatched up my tripod without retracting the legs or removing the camera and walked away as fast as I could with my wedges. I didn't want to wait around to see what he had to say. I jumped in my car and sped away in my wedges. I never drive in wedges but I had no time to change into flats. No time.

necklace made by ali)

So, can we talk about this AMAZING MUSTACHE NECKLACE? Yes, we can. A few months ago I gushed over Ali's mustache necklace that she apparently MADE HERSELF? I had been craving one but reluctant to spend the money for one. Because Ali is such a sweetheart she offered to make one for me! It came in the mail a few weeks ago and I've been wearing it as if I actually have a mustache every day. She named it Marvin and I'm quite head over heels with him. :)

Oh, and my best friend who moved to Texas sent me this lovely skirt! She knows how much I love BCBG. I miss her (if you're reading this, Phebe, get your ass back to NJ ASAP!)

  2. Cutie!
    I wish I looked that good in a tight skirt!

    And maybe that guy was going to ask if you wanted him to take the photos for you rather than using a tri-pod. okay, even that sounded creepy!

  5. BAH!!! So creepy. I am way, way too ridiculously afraid of creepy people to the point of paranoia. It's probably because I watch too many horror movies, but still! you can't deny the weirdness of creepers that follow you- like this!!

    I'm glad you booked it! Next time, take off your shoes even and run away with them in hand :)

    BCBG skirts are my favorite and your shirt is precious. I've never been more excited to get a package than I am to get yourss!! I have the most perfect skirt EVER for you!

    xoxoxoxo!

  43. Total creeper. I've heard several stories of bloggers taking photos and being watched and/or followed. Definitely have to be careful and keep your eyes peeled.

    And carry pepper spray.

  44. That is SO scary!

    Does it make you want to dress badly or unattractively just to ward off the creeps? Sometimes that's how I feel! Is that weird?

    You do look amazing, love the outfit and I think the mustache necklace is super adorable! In a, you know, masculine mustache kind of way. :)

  46. bahaha! i love that you got a photo of your creepy stalker dude. you should have gone up to him with your mustache to scare him away!

    also, love the birds on your blouse!

    ReplyDelete
  47. 1) You have MAJA SKILLZZZ. You don't look sweaty AT ALL. I'm taking pictures inside/ at night/ just going nude (not actually) because weather + me = REALLY BAD. And really obviously BAD.
    2) Creepy men. Ew. I love how you took a picture of him! Haha. I wish I had Paint, as it'd be pretty awesome to write "CREEPER" and draw an arrow pointing to him. Next time?
    3) AWESOME NECKLACE. Ali make ME one!? akshdkajshdkahd
