The Unpublished

I thought it would be fun to post some of the outfits that didn't make the cut. For various reasons, the below outfits just didn't seem blog worthy. For those of you who blog, you may understand what I'm saying. With each of these outfits, I left the house with a Meh feeling...I didn't feel excited or non-excited. Just an in between feeling that caused me to later leave them unpublished.

With that being said, it is extremely important for me to feel good about what I'm wearing. If not, then the result isn't pretty...just Meh. So here we are, the ones that went unpublished - until now. Let me know what you think.

With this look, the weather was gray and cold and I was irritated by the change in temperature and didn't feel like wearing weather-appropriate clothing. I also believe that the boots have run their course and need to be retired. What I did like was the scarf. Scarves are always fun!

On this day, I just wasn't in the mood for taking pictures. I remember we canceled the shoot and I went back to bed. I was fine with the look, but felt moody.

I couldn't stand this outfit because of the sweater/dress/tunic. I really don't know what it is. It's too long to be a regular sweater and too short for a dress. I can't stand it and wish I didn't buy it. I have styled it in many ways and it just doesn't work.


I can't recall why I didn't publish this outfit. Now that I look at it, it seems fine. Perhaps I was just tired of dressing for fall and wanted it to be done with.

I am greatly influenced by weather. On this day, it was already 80 degrees in the morning. I don't know why I wore a look with thick knee-high socks. I simply felt hot and wasn't feeling my look.

There you have it friends - my unpublished / now published looks. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you next week, here at So What to Twenty{wink}

  1. I enjoyed this a lot! I totally understand what you are saying here. I don't publish all of my photo shoots either. And I am not crazy about some of those I chose to publish. But then, I have a different approach to my blog. I like seeing them all together, seeing my journey, my learning curve if you will. So I don't consider them mistakes or something like that - it's just my path and experiments, and some of them I will repeat in one form or another, while others won't be repeated. But I just love your honesty. I might do something like this later in my journey too.

    Now, on to your outfits. I actually like #1 very much! Because of the scarf and the boots. They might seem ready to retire to you, but I don't know them very much :) and was glad to meet them. I think it is a very fun look, Glenda!

    I like the one with the tunic/sweater. At least, at this angle it looks fine. I like the contrast of black and crisp white here, the texture of tunic and the shoes of course!

    I think the one with the blue skirt is very Glenda! But I can understand you being tired of Fall and ready to move on! :)

    Thank you, very fun post! Lots of thoughts here! :)

    1. Natalia, it is funny how most seemed to like the look with the tunic and that was the one I liked the least. Go figure. I understand your blog journey, but for some reason, if I'm not comfortable with the look, I am uninspired to even write about it.

      I'm glad you liked the post. Perhaps I'll do this again with my other meh outfits. :)

  2. I think all of the outfits look good but I completely understand that you have to feel good in them too, they have to feel like you. The first one looks good but sort of like it's missing something. I think that the headscarf is great but maybe not working with the black and white. I find I want to see a colourful scarf around your neck with that outfit or even a black and white one, but that would compete with a head scarf. Maybe a cold necklace and leave the headscarf. Not sure those are just my immediate thoughts.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Shawna you are correct, when I wore this outfit, I felt like something was missing. Perhaps color would have been a better choice.

  3. Oh this reminds me I should review my archive :) Nice outfits. I like this post because it shows many ideas, not just one.

  4. I don't blog but I read the fashion blogs because you all put pieces together that I just don't have the "eye" to do. So even though you may not like the final product, it still give me an idea to give it a try. I like the sweater tunic, I have one just like it. And I agree that it is too long for a sweater and too short for a dress. But after looking at your picture I'm going to try it with a white button up shirt and jeans. THANKS! :-)

  6. Been there myself too many times Glenda so I totally understand what you say, I hate this meh feeling :-/ Anyway the one with the cobalt blue skirt should have made it. I think it's awesome! The last one is equally gorgeous and should have made it too! Both outfits are Glenda_ish imho.

    1. Lenya you are so sweet and kind. Thank you so much. Funny you liked the two that were effected by my mood with the weather.

  7. I totally get what you mean and I do the same thing if I'm not feeling a certain outfit.
    I really like the long sweater, dress, tunic outfit. I wish I could see you standing to get a better gauge. Perhaps adding slim/skinny jeans might do the trick and adding boots/booties??

    Have a wonderful weekend! Happy Easter!

    1. Shon I think you're right about the skinnies and booties. Perhaps I'll give it a try if I don't put the sweater in my charity pile :)

  8. I think they all look great especially the sweater dress/tunic, but I know what you mean about not liking a particular outfit after taking the pics. Happy Good Friday and have a Blessed Resurrection Sunday.

  10. I totally get you on this. I usually save those outfits for when I don't have anything really cute. ;-) I like each of your outfits, but my favorite is the sweater tunic over the white button down. So simple yet funky.

  11. Hi Glenda
    Have to agree with most of the subscriber's
    I like them but my fav is the tunic & jeans.
    The one you least like.:O
    but like you said you need to feel right about wearing something. I do the same there are times I have change certain pieces before getting the one I feel most flattering.
    Happy Easter to you & your family!

  12. Actually these are all great but I know you mean about not feeling it. That would be me most days. I have to be really excited to pull the camera out. You are are a great inspiration, Glenda. And I agree, the headscarf is terrific!

  13. I'm glad you showed us these! To me, all these looks look fine. But I get it that sometimes you just feel kinda blah about an outfit, happens to me too. Same thing with make-up.

  14. Funny how we feel about our outfits ourselves. I find them all great (perhaps the last one could use some colour if I am going to be critical). The boots in the first photo are beautiful, don't throw them out. Second outfit: great, nothing wrong with it. Third one: I recognize this... I felt the same about my grey boyfriend jacket. It took me ages to find a decent match for them. And like I always do... you have chosen a picture that doesn't really show how terrible it is. As it is looking fine.
    As you said the fourth one is great too.
    Never mind, we have seen them now. Thank you for the inspiration.

  15. Oh wow, I love them all! It's funny, I think the tunic/sweater and jeans with the sandals is really! Great style.

  16. Glenda,
    I am sorry that I am just getting to this post. I think there are some very beautiful pictures in the slot, but it is funny, I can see in the one photo where you are wearing a striped T-shirt that you don't look quite your self. That is the day I believe, that you did not feel like taking photos, and I can sort of see that. I must say however that you look very pretty. What is also clear to me from seeing these pictures is that you are perfectionist, and that also you are quite the artist. The way you style the shots in terms of movement and composition is really very accomplished. I'm really glad you share these photos with us after all. With love, Elle
