Lookbook: Winter Blues

I hardly ever wear blue, it just has never been my color nor have I ever really been attracted to it. However, I have been trying to incorporate more color into my closet, especially for the winter as I always find myself in gray, black or white.

What I'm Wearing:
Blouse: Podoll (from here on sale!)
Blazer: LaRok (also seen in this lookbook)
Jeans: Rag and Bone
Shoes: Bally (also seen here)
Watch: Diesel

It's still too cold to just wear the blouse so I put on one of my many blazers to keep me warm. I'm not the biggest fan of how flouncy the blouse is at the waist, I probably could have tugged it down a little lower, but I liked the color on me. It was a good change of pace.

The best part of the ensemble that day was my hair. I had watched "The City" the night before and fell in love with Olivia Palermo's hair. I mean gorgeous right? The show on a whole is so BO-ring but I will watch it just to see her hair. She is my new hair icon.

So with her fabulous locks in mind...

I tried to style mine similarly

The half smile/smirk may work for those richie rich PYT's,
but I think I shall stick with my smile.

I was needing the perfect accessory to go with my outfit but couldn't figure out what and I said to J that I needed a black watch. He said, "Why don't you wear mine?" And what do you know? It was perfect!

It was big so I wore it more like a bangle than a watch but I really liked the way it looked on my little wrist.

A very Tiffany outfit with a touch of J included equals perfection in my book! Hmmm... now what else of his can I borrow?

If you are wondering, I'm wearing OPI Black Cherry Chutney on my nails. Hands down my favorite nail polish color ever.

Oh and Miss Palermo?
I do envy your big eyes with those eyelids that I will never have.


But those lashes, I can do too!

  2. I love this look (i also prefer your smile to miss O.P's)--are these curls made possible by your digital perm? I have pin straight fine hair...I wish I could pull this off!

  3. I wish I had even an ounce of the self confidence that you obviously have.

  4. lol ...I'll never have eyelids either :)

    I was so wishing for a big black watch for xmas but I didn't get one. Love the men's versions! You look adorable!

  5. Did we ever come to a consensus about whether white girls with fine, straight hair can pull off a digital perm? Because I'm dying with envy of Tiffany's fabulous hair!! Her outfits are smashing as well. It must be exhausting to be so cute! :)

  7. Thanks for all the nice comments everyone! I'm not feeling too great today so it has made me feel better. :)

    Tanya - my digital perm def. helps hold the curls but naturally my digital perm does not look that way (I wish). I actually straightened my hair that day and then pieced my hair with some styling cream and then curled it with a one inch curler. I curled some pieces outward and some pieces inward so that it was kind of a messy curl overall. And then I took two front pieces and pinned them to the back with bobby pins.

    oh that was a long explanation. Hope that helps! Maybe I should do a video or something?

    Daryn - I wish I knew other girls (who weren't Asian) that got a digital perm but I say if you're hair is easy to style and hasn't been through a lot of coloring or previous perms then you should probably be okay!

  9. Your eyelashes + hair = me jealous.

    Are your eyelashes really that long!?

  10. OMG! I was just thinking today how I need to buy a men's watch--it's something I've been meaning to do for a year or more. Maybe I'm just waiting to meet the man of my dreams? It's much more fun to steal a watch from a cute boy than to go into a store and buy one.

  12. I love Black Cherry Chutney as well! It's one of the less talked about OPI colors, but I own 3 bottles of it, just in case it become hard to find!

    I love your look book posts, you are definitely my new style icon!

  15. things are so much more fun when you have a style icon. i absolutely love how your hair turned out! perhaps a lesson is in the works for those of us who are inept at using curling irons? :)

  16. Just found your blog and I absolutely LOVE it! What do you do? Do you work in fashion?

  17. Yesss...a video!!! My hair never keeps a curl successfully. Sigh.

  18. tiffany, you look fab in bold blue. according to my pal who is also a stylist, gals with dark coloring meaning dark hair should stick to bright bold color and stay away from soft pastel colors.

  21. Love the pop of color in the blouse and your blazer. You have totally made me dig all of mine out. And I am so envious of your curls. OPI's You Don't Know Jacques! is the color I am currently obsessed with; I will definitely be picking up some of that Black Cherry Chutney though.
