(music) Saifya – Hello, friends, and welcome to another video! Today, I am going to have my outfit chosen by strangers. So, I was thinking a little bit about how I shop for myself, and how I choose outfits. I think that I always do it in the context of what I usually like to wear, and I also don’t really buy, like, full new outfits of clothes very often, I feel like I usually shop, like, item to item. So, I thought it would be fun to go to the mall, meet some new people, and have them pick out a whole outfit for me, without the constraints that I usually put on myself, when I shop. I’m pretty intrigued to see what people choose. Like, who knows if I’ll come out of this with any items I can actually wear? So, I think I’m gonna do it, like, item at a time, so, we can get, like, a few different people’s perspectives. A top, a bottom, some type of accessory– jacket, something like that– a shoe or footwear of some kind, and then maybe like face wear. Uh, an eyeliner, or, like, a lip color, or something to kinda pull it all together. Alright, I’m ready! Tyler, are you ready? Tyler – Yup Safiya – Let’s go to the mall! Today. Ok! We’re on our way to the mall right now. I don’t know who we’re gonna talk to today, but I hope that people want to talk to me. So, I’m gonna try really hard to not insert any of my own opinions, into the mix. I am gonna try and have, like, some type of loose price constraint. I’m just gonna loiter outside of some reasonably priced stores, and then just be like, “Hey! Want to clothe me?” I’m curious, also, to see how doing it, like, one item at a time, will affect their decision making. Will they try and, like, build the outfit? Will they try and misdirect the last item that was chosen and, like, pull it in different directions? I don’t know! Okay, so I tried to wear like, a pretty non-descript outfit, just so, like, people wouldn’t be like, too steered by what I’m currently wearing. Well, I’m gonna start off with the shirt, and then we’re gonna go down from the shirt. The first item will, like, set the mood for the rest of the outfit. So, the first people I met were Mariah and Leo. They are my first subjects. They are going to pick me out any type of shirt that they feel. So, we’re gonna go try and find a shirt right now. (Tyler laughs) We were standing, like, nearby to Hot Topic. They literally beelined straight for this Eevee shirt. Tyler – Oh wow. That’s a good choice. I like that. Safiya – Do I look like an Eevee? They were just like: Eevee shirt. Yes. Perfect. This is what we want. Is this the choice, Leo, you think you guys are in agreement? Yeah? (Tyler Laughs) This is our shirt. You guys are very quick at decision making. Wow. I like Eevee. There’s nothing not to like about Eevee. Eevee’s got a lot of cool evolutions, can go in a lot of different ways. Here it is. It actually fits quite well. I think it looks pretty cute. Number one: fabulous. Number two: fabulous. Number 3: FABULOUS. Same. I- I have no words. Like- It’s- It’s amazing. I love Hot Topic. I feel like I usually buy like, pop figurines, or, like, keychain type stuff from there, but, you know? I’m down for an Eevee shirt. Item number one, down. Good job, you guys. Thank you, Mariah. Thank you, Leo. Shirt, check. Tyler – Thank you, guys. Safiya – Okay. Bye, guys! So, Mariah and Leo were tasked with, like, beginning the outfit, and they really knew what they wanted. So now, everyone else has to kind of like, choose around it. So, it’ll be interesting how Mariah and Leo’s choice like, shapes the rest of the outfit. Who’s next? Okay, so this is Liz. Liz has agreed to find me some bottoms. Alright, so, let’s go. We’re going to Forever 21. Whatever you think, Liz, any type of bottom you like. Tyler – You can go the embarrassing route, you can go the trendy, style, statement route. Safiya – Ooh, that could be fun. We did a decent amount of searching around Forever 21 before we found a pair of pants that she liked. Oh, yeah. I think Liz saw that the shirt was pretty bold, and kind of went for something that was more muted and wearable. I have the opposite problem. Liz – I know. Safiya – Ok, awesome. So, let me try these on really quick, and I’ll come out and see what you think. The dressing room’s right there. Perfect. Here they are, Liz. Safiya – I’m glad you like them. I like them, too. They’re pretty fun. Tyler – What do you think, Liz? Could we maybe put a few more holes in those? Just, like, rip a few more open? Safiya – There was a split second where she thought about putting me in like, pale pink, athletic shorts. Liz -No! Safiya – That turns it into like, a workout outfit, huh? But, mercifully, she did not. Tyler – I think that this is a good one to set up for the jacket. Right? Liz – Oh, yeah.
Safiya – I agree. The jacket and then maybe a shoe as well. So we’ll look for a, a couple more victims. You said victims, too?
Liz – Uh, yeah! It was nice to meet you! You’re gonna go for a hug? I’m going for a hug, too. Alright. Pants: check! So, while we were at Forever 21, once we’ve gotten the jeans, we met Rebecca. Rebecca is gonna pick out a jacket. Some type of, like, layering top to put over my tank top. So, Rebecca, honestly, whatever you feel. Rebecca – Okay. I think Rebecca kind of took a look at the shirt and the pants and was like, “Hmm, why not just go all out?” Safiya – Let’s go crazy. Okay, so we’re going to find some ‘go big or go home’ jackets over there, you think? Rebecca – Yeah! Safiya – She immediately was like, “Oh, I remember seeing some wild jackets, near the front.” So we went and found the, like, very specific wild jacket that she had remembered, while she had already walked through the store. Which was this purple, kind of sheer jacket that says “Roll with me”, on the front and back. Tyler – Oh, I like that. Safiya – And then, on the back, once again, “Roll with me.” Are you into roller skating? Rebecca – No. Safiya – Would you wear this type of thing, Rebecca? Rebecca – No. Safiya – There we go. What do we think? Rebecca – I mean, the whole color vibe is nice. Tyler – And you can zip it up and still see the Eevee. Safiya – Rebecca’s like, slowly backing away. She’s like, “I didn’t do this.” (Rebecca laughs) Tyler – “Why did I sign up for this?” Safiya – I think that we, we’re going with it. Tyler – Is this the one you wanna go with, Rebecca? Safiya – Alright. Jacket, check. Rebecca nailed it, I think. I can’t see anything. I’m gonna go like this. There we go. So, even though it’s see through, I actually can’t see through this. Safiya – Thanks, Rebecca
Rebecca – See ya! Safiya – Bye! Tyler – You’re so colorful right now. Safiya – I feel like now it’s, like, a very festive look. So, next, were Lisa and Isabelle, who I tasked with finding me a pair of shoes. At first, Lisa said that she wanted to go with sneakers. Tyler – Jellies? So, we spent a little bit of time, kind of searching around for some jelly sandals. We walked into Zara, and we almost bought a pair of, like, blue, kind of plastic, like, slides, with pearls on them. Isabelle – I mean, we said jellies, but then when you look at those, you’re like, “Why not?” kind of a thing. Safiya – But, they did not have any in my size, or even close. We found a cool pair of shoes downstairs, but they only had, like, size six and a half, so we’re gonna try again. We were also joined by their other two sisters, who helped in the hunt. Tyler – So, we’re just shopping now. Tyler – I’m having a good time. Safiya – There’s a wide array of shoes over here. So, something’s gonna stick. We found these silver, platform loafers at H&M. Isabelle – Maybe? Tyler – You wanted to go big. Safiya – Is there a slightly larger one? Because, I’m down. Oh, yup. They’re nine and a halfs. Just like clockwork, we found ’em. Isabelle – We didn’t find the jellies, but these are a step up, so… Safiya – Wow Isabelle – For me, that’s the move. What do you think, Lisa? Speechless. Tyler – This is a group decision, I think that we have to go with it, Saf. Safiya – It takes a village. Tyler – All in here. Lisa – All in.
Isabelle – All in. Safiya – Yes. All – One, two, three, jellies! Safiya – Shoes, check.
Isabelle – Best of luck. Safiya – At that point, I had, like, a pretty complete outift, which was made up of, like, a lot of bold items. But, weirdly, wasn’t that weird altogether. How I feel about this whole thing is, I feel like each individual item is a great purchase, for later on. And then, today is just the, the cherry on top of it all, which is that I get to wear them all together at once. Tyler – Once again, you’re in pastels, Safiya. Safiya – How does this keep happening? But, I was wearing like a dark brown lipstick, which was no longer really working with the aesthetic that was going on. I’m thinking that like the, the finishing touch should be, like, a different lip color. I don’t know who will be the finisher, but, I’m excited. Alright, so I’m here with Jessica. She’s gonna pick out a lip color for me and, um, kind of just finish off this outfit. What do you think of my outfit right now? Jessica took one look at the outfit that I had on, and was immediately, like, “Unicorn!” So, she had a really clear vision of what she wanted. What do you think? Maybe a purple? Ooh! I might own this, at home. What do you think? More purple? I feel you. Kind of like, almost like, not to match the jacket, but, like, I got some, like, purple-pink tones happening. I think Jessica’s choice was both easy and hard. I think she had all of the elements together, already, so, she could kind of like see what was going on, and go with it. But, she also had to kind of like find the thing that would bring it all together. So, it was like a decently high stakes choice. So, we did a little bit of swatching, a little bit of perusing, but, finally we found the perfect metallic purple lipstick. Jessica – Yeah. Safiya – Yeah? Let me see if I can find like, a good, fresh spot to swatch it Tyler – I like that. Safiya – Jessica likes it. Alright, I think we’re gonna go with it. I’m gonna get these off my hand and get this off my face. Jessica, do you wear purple, metallic lipstick often? Jessica – No. Safiya – Oh, yeah! I’m into it. What do you think? Jessica’s like devious. She’s like, “Yes! Yes!” Jessica had a vision, came in, killed it. Thank you! And, here, now, is my outfit. It’s alive! I feel like I am wearing a full outfit, that is pretty durn different from what I walked in wearing today. So this is the first full-length mirror we’ve encountered. So, this is my first look at the outfit all together. I think Jessica did a great job tying it together with this lip color. I think everyone did a great job. The thing that cracks me up is “Roll with me.” I would say in general, everything’s pretty, like, out there except for the pants which are more, like, muted. But, I actually think that they all work together, kind of because of the pants. I’m gonna be honest. It’s not- I think it kind of came together in a, in a way. I think that besides the pants, none of these things are things that I would have chosen for myself. But, all together, they were pretty fun. And, also, individually, I really liked them too. Color-wise, it’s pretty consistent. I think that’s somewhat controlled by what’s in the stores right now. Are these kind of like unicorn, frappuccino, like, pastel colors? But, I also think it kind of shows, like, what’s on people’s minds at the moment. And, I think that Jessica, like, took one look at what I was wearing, and was just like “Oh, I know what that is: Unicorn.” I think overall, I was just surprised by how decisive people were, when choosing an outfit for someone else. I’m not sure if that was just people trying to, sort of, like, “Get it over with.”; if they were just tired of shopping with me. Or, it could be, as I think it is, that we are just, like, less self-conscious when shopping for other people’s stuff. We’re just like, “Oh, I like that. That’s cool. You wear it.” Which was kind of a relief for me. It was very stress-free. I was like, “Okay!” And, I came away with a fun outfit. Well, a few fun items, together, that make some kind of outfit.
