Do you notice women on the street? If so, what sort of women do you tend to notice or admire?

I always check out other people.

Even men.

I am not looking at them per se, I am looking at their entire outfit, their gait, their posture, their bearing and how much I like certain parts or all of their outfit.

I’m really only staring at them for their clothes, which can either come off as creepy (unless you have a super cute toddler on your lap), or flattering.

The type of women I admire the most are the ones who look polished yet comfortable.

This doesn’t mean you have to be in high heels and a pencil skirt to turn my head, because I have equally admired women in a t-shirt, jeans, ballet flats and an obviously well-loved but beautifully worn bag.

Just the other day while I was at a cafe waiting for Baby Bun to wake up from his nap in the stroller, I saw a woman in the most perfect dove grey linen sheath dress and these bright deep rusty orange suede block heeled pumps.

She looked INCREDIBLE.


I even stalked her a little with my iPod Touch to try and get her entire outfit but she kept walking and talking.

The only off note for me if I was wearing her outfit, was her blush coloured cross body which looked more like her everyday bag but it didn’t go with the outfit.

I would have finished the outfit with my navy blue bucket thrifted bag to play off the navy & orange.


I was already clocking items in my wardrobe I’d put with her entire outfit and coveting the entire thing.

For others, I tend not to really be interested in kooky or too-revealing outfits for myself, but they do turn my head.

Generally speaking, I stare because I want to break apart their entire outfit and then try to re-create it with my own pieces at home, or to twist it in some way to make it fit to myself.

I have even chased women down to ask them where they bought certain items, or made a note to buy a similar piece if I am missing it in my wardrobe because their outfit was perfectly what I was trying to capture but I was just missing something I didn’t know I was missing until I saw it on them.

I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K.
