Lookbook: A little bit Rocker

I'm trying out all sorts of new things this summer, wearing yellow, trying out rompers and bringing back the shorts. This is one of my "experimental" outfits to see how I like it. It's a bit different than my typical style but a fun look for the weekends.

What I'm Wearing:
Tank: Wilifred (from Aritzia)
Bandeau: Forever 21
Leggings: Forever 21
Shoes: L.A.M.B.

I love Aritzia and am sad that they do not have an online shop as I've gotten so many questions about where to get some of my favorite pieces that I've worn in my lookbooks from there. It's predominatly in Canada and we have a few in the US. I think the one near me (in Bellevue, which is not THAT close, you still gotta get on the freeway but it's close enough) was one of the first in the US. Everytime I go in that store I walk out with pieces that are totally different than the rest of my closet but I love to add different elements to my wardrobe. I picked up this gray tank that last time I was there and fell in love with the silk and how it lays so beautifully. It was a bit more expensive that what I like to pay for tank tops but the fit, the cut and the material is what makes it worth it.

When I tried it on in the store I knew instantly that I wanted a bright color to pop out from underneath and searched high and low until I found this bandeau that was the perfect neon yellow.

Jeans didn't look quite right so I paired it with my shiny leggings and hot shoes. After all that I felt like a little bit like a rocker so topped it off with the chain necklace. I'm not used to wearing stuff that is so tight and shows so much skin (it's usually one or the other for me, not both) but it just worked that day so I went with it. It's good to step outside of the box sometimes with your style. It can help you think differently about the way you normally dress and give you ideas to incorporate it into your every day style.

  15. YAY Aritzia!!! That is honestly my favorite store to shop in. :D you're right, it is a little pricey, so whenever I hear of a sale I practically sprint over there.

    and your outfit is crazy hot! laid-back, rocker style is what I try to aim for but i always end up a little too laid back and not very rocker.. e.g. tees, tanks, jeans.

    and thank you for responding about the etsy package. i should be shipping the macaroons out tomorrow. thanks again :)

  17. This rocker look is hott hott hott! I love the shiny leggings with it - I definitely think I need to grab a pair, because it looks great on you!

    I agree that we should step out of our box every now and then...but I like my box, it's so comfy! =)

  18. You look HOT Tiffany!!! I'll bet that J was calling you something other than cute as a button in little little number...lol! :) You seriously look awesome and pull this off without looking the least bit tart-y as only you can!

  19. Wow cute outfit!! I can't believe I only found Aritzia last week and Bellevue Square is so close to me. I have already bought a whole bunch of stuff from there and loving them!!!

  20. Tiffany, I always love your outfits but this is by far my favorite (maybe because it's closer to my style.. ^_~ ) Anyway, I found an Aritzia in Las Vegas! I love their clothes!

    P.s. I love your blog!

  21. As a Vancouverite who's relocated to Seattle, I am so glad Aritzia has arrived. Now I don't get nearly as homesick!

    Iono if I can agree with the online shopping idea, though. I love that I have to get out and go to the store to see their stuff in person, esp when the sales girls rock it, and show me how I can rock it too (I'd be screwed if I had to guess). Pics on the internet can be misleading. Plus, it takes the fun out of window shopping. That's my take, at least.

  22. I agree, those shiny leggings and hot heels really complete the outfit perfectly!

  26. I am loving this look! Grey and neon anything is like, the most brilliant color combination ever. There are a few Aritzia stores in the bay area but I can't believe I don't think I've ever set foot in one! This is definitely inspiration to explore their wares next time I'm at the mall.

  28. I have always been curious on the right way to wear a bandeau and I love how you paired it underneath that tank. It shows off the neon green in just the right amount! I also love the chains and the shoes. Rock on hot chica!

  41. Miss Tiffany - I happened to see rows and rows of shoe racks on my way through Nordstrom the other day and I thought of you... did you have any fabulous shoe splurges beyond your lovely Diors?

    Cheers,
