It’s that time of the year again!
So today, we have two very special guest-bloggers here on vincephilosophy.com. It’s a collaborated post on the topic of Outfit of the Day or when abbreviated simply spells OOTD. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Joel of www.leonhart90.blogspot.com and Nicole of www.nicccchang.com!
I think this post should be an awesome piece, since we have two very learned bloggers on the vogue of fashion that contributed to this article. We have a lusciously slim, exquisite-looking sexy blogger who’s not afraid to put on the trendiest outfit and show the world what real fashion is. And I’m not even talking about Nicole yet.
Well, here is Joel’s take on OOTD alongside Nicole, who was gracious enough to loan us her really pretty self in collaboration of this blog post.
Note: DON’T JUST SCROLL DOWN TO SEE PICTURES OF THE PRETTY GIRL!
Outfit of the Day by Joel Wong
When I started Instagramming (because it was mainstream and I didn’t want to be left out), I noticed that most of the girls I followed posted pictures with the hashtag #ootd. I was confused at first because #ootd sounds a lot like what a baby would say, y’know, if babies could Instagram. But no, these were perfectly normal girls who took perfectly normal pictures of themselves. I know because I tend to…er…diligently admire all of their pictures.
So I put this one question in the back of my mind and went back to enjoying their pictures. It didn’t get resolved until I noticed a male friend of mine who started to use the #ootd hashtag as well. Since I didn’t want to get left behind (I’m big on mainstream things, in case I didn’t make myself clear enough), I approached (through Twitter message) the only person I knew who won’t insult me for my lack of knowledge, Nicole Chang. She’s an avid Instagrammer and often uses the #ootd hashtag in her pictures.
“#ootd?” she asked cutely, because I can totally feel the cuteness radiating from the pixelated text on my computer screen. “That means outfit of the day lah.”
It was at that point of time that I decided to be a part of this noble quest to share with the world my #ootd. Of course, I have no idea how to #ootd so I had to ask Nicole for a lot of tips. Below is one week’s worth of #ootd. I must warn you beforehand, it may get a little...weird.
Nicole’s first #ootd is a bit difficult to copy since she has an extra accessory. Hmmm…this may be more difficult than I imagined it to be. I didn’t know you need to bring in your friends as part of your accessories in an #ootd.
This seems relatively simple. Unfortunately, most of my clothes are in the wash so I’ll have to modify yesterday’s T-shirt a little. Also, I have no super short, shorts so I took the liberty to roll my jeans up. Yes, I only have one pair of jeans.
I see the trick already. For a good #ootd shot, you must show your bed in the background. Luckily my room is tiny so I don’t really have a choice but to show my bed. If you notice, again the same rolled up jeans. Since Nicole is wearing layers, I’m just going to follow her example. Just following the sifu.
I don’t know if this is a thing but apparently wearing branded clothing also includes non-clothing brands like Starbucks. What is that? Batman is not-hey buddy, Batman is still a brand okay? Because he’s Batman. Also, I have no idea how Nicole did it but she transformed her mattress bed into a freaking double decker. I don’t have powers like that so I’ll just ignore it.
There you have it guys, give it up for Joel and Nicole! Don’t forget to head on over to Joel’s blog to see my take on this OOTD routine. Be warned that there may be some very disturbing images of yours truly and prior apologies for the nightmares that I’ll be causing in the next few nights.
