    If you do, what do you do with the pictures? Share it on facebook/twitter/instagram? Share it on a blog?

    I take pictures sometimes, especially if I have a few minutes to spare before heading out and I really love my outfit. I sometimes share the pictures on my blog, but usually I don't do anything with my outfit pics. I have quite a few just idling away in my phone. I do enjoy going through other people's ootd pictures though.

    This is my first time I am hearing about OOTD. I have heard about TBT, FBF (flash back Friday), and a few other things like Drop Selfies but not OOTD. I have a couple friends who upload a photo of what they are wearing that day but they don't hash tag it as that. I think its a nice idea and will have to try it. But when I do posts like that, I usually do direct posting to a set of friends and not to the entire group.

    No, not really. I wear clothes to make myself comfortable, not to show off my outfit for people who probably don't really care.

    If my outfit is on point and looks REALLY good, I'll probably take a picture to remind myself what goes with what, but I wouldn't go as far as putting it on social media. Like I said, chances are people either really don't care what you're wearing or think you're being vain, or think that you are so unhappy with yourself that you need validation from others in regards to what you're wearing.

    No, I don't. In fact, I have never heard of the Outfit of the Day pictures project. They remind me of show and tell projects, and maybe more of the things people wear when they are doing work, such as aprons, busser non-slip shoes, workmen's jacket, or doctor's robe. I don't usually have an outfit of the day idea, and I wear basically just the same thing from morning till I shower. I think it's a great idea to have an OOTD.

    I have heard of OOTD, a lot of people are doing it and even posted it on social media. I sometimes take OOTD pictures but I don't post it on social media. If you post it on social media chances are you will either be praised or be criticized. I'd rather have those pictures kept in my private album labeled "for my eyes only".

    Wow, i've never heard of OOTD before! -so no, I don't do it and will probably never do it unless I had a blog. But even still, it's really putting yourself out there and probably opening yourself up for possible abuse. But hey, if you're passionate about it and have thick skin, I say kudos to you. I have a friend who takes selfies every single day, every little thing she does to herself; she has to document on her phone. It takes dedication lol

    What I like the idea of though, is if I'm wearing an outfit I particularly like, I might start taking pictures of it but for MY EYES ONLY. Like someone says, for future reference.

    I never do OOTD but then again, I'venever taken a selfie inmy life. I don't really see the point, I don't look any different than I did yesterday and I'm confident enough in my clothing choices not to need someone else's approval.

    I take pictures of outfits that I think make me look my best but such an occasion is rare. OOTD shots are just beyond me. I usually don't put so much thought into the clothes I'd be wearing on a daily basis so taking OOTD pictures is the least among my considerations on a regular day. I wear for comfort and expression - not really to impress other people.

    LOL!!! I have never heard of an Outfit Of The Day, and was not aware that it was a thing to begin with? However, if I am going out and I feel I look particularly good, I might snap a few shots and see what happens as far as how the pictures come out. I will not post them on Facebook or any other form of social media though. I keep them for anyone that I may want to send them to.

    Nope. I love taking pictures but I'm not particularly a farm of seflies. Groupies yes, but selfies, na ah. I could see why some or most girls would love to post pictures of them online since they're born that way. But when men post things like OOTD kinda gives me an impression that they're not straight LOL!

    That's just my opinion and I may be wrong but I just don't feel like seeing men's OOTD pictures whenever I open my facebook.

    I don't take OOTD pictures because I don't like the attention it would attract, but mostly because I am not a particularly stylish person. I don't think anyone would want to see 7 different pictures of me in yet another jeans and Tshirt combo :/
    I would do it just to be snarky though.

    I don't do selfies, but I have lots of friends who do and to be honest I find it all a bit superficial. Those who work don't get a great deal of choice and I don't mind photos of an outfit for a special occasion, but clearly people who take OOTD are people who have way too much time on their hands. It's fine for teenagers because that what teenagers do, but not for adults.

    Lol, I know some people who do that. And it amuses me when I see their photos on Facebook. Not really outfit of the day, but I'd like to call it "Pose For The Day". There is this particular PROFILE photo (take note, she likes to show it off publicly) of someone I knew and she was topless and braless and her back was facing the camera, but she was facing side view and was heavily covered in make-up. It was funny for me because she wasn't attractive at all and was clearly looking for attention. Of course, her clique liked her photo.

    It's quite funny that the people that I went to school with in grade school and high school are now posing "seductively" in Facebook, haha, it's like they're wannabe porn stars now! :D
