Lookbook: OTK Boots

I don’t know what I did before Over-The-Knee boots. I love them! They are my go-to when I want to wear dresses and tights but it’s still chilly out. These gray ones I got in Hong Kong are not the most comfortable but I haven’t been able to find any here that fit me as nice as these ones do.

What I’m Wearing:
Blazer: LaRok
Dress: Forever 21
Skirt: H&M
Boots: from Hong Kong

I haven’t been shopping at Forever 21 lately. Just not feeling the stuff. But on a recent rare trip to the mall (we don’t do mall shopping that often) I decided to pop in. My strategy for shopping at Forever 21 is go in, scan, scan, scan, grab what looks good, hold it up to the mirror and then pay. I can only last 20 minutes in that store before I go crazy. And then I go home and hope the stuff I bought fits.

I couldn’t tell if this was supposed to be a dress but if it was, it was way too short for my taste so I belted it and then added the slim skirt underneath. I don’t tend to do funny cartoony prints but I kind of loved the cosmetics print. I think it was the little nail polish bottles that got to me. I added a bigger picture so you can see the print but, I’m self conscious seeing myself so big on the blog. Am I totally in your face or what? ha!

Oh and my hair? I literally just got out of the shower and blow dried it but it was still a little wet. That’s why it’s looking a little bit flat. Gross. So now you see why I spend so much time on my hair! 🙂


Shop the Lookbook:

LaROK Gothic Princess Jacket
I love the ruffles on the bottom of this jacket!

I really want a sequin blazer, so so badly and I love the strong shoulders of this one.

Forever 21 Gingham Belted Plaid Dress
Forever 21 has the fastest turnover for clothes on their website. I just bought my top at the store but couldn’t find it on the website. This plaid is cute and has a bit of a similar shape.

Forever 21 Airbrushed Roses Tunic Tank
But I also love the colors of this one and it would work similarly to my top.

Pleasure Doing Business 5 Band Miniskirt
I love the look of these banded skirts. Always great to have a variety of slim skirts to wear underneath too short dresses.

Cheaper version here or and even cheaper here.

DKNY Opaque Tights

N.y.l.a. Petula Suede Over The Knee Platform Boot
These look SUPER tall, so if you are a shorty like me, these might be too tall.

These Steve Maddens are a pretty good alternative. I’m a fan of flat OTK boots too.


Bow Necklace by Kate Gray Designs
I didn’t end up wearing a necklace that day but if I did, it would’ve been something like this bow necklace. Isn’t it pretty? In love with everything from her shop. I just bought the most gorgeous bracelet… can’t wait to get it and show you guys!

    I love getting boots in Asia even though sometimes it's not as comfortable, but it seems to fit oh so perfectly! Love the color of yours!

    I love this outfit. And I don't think your hair looks flat, I think it looks lovely! Goes nicely with the print dress/tunic . . . at least to me it does. And not quite sure why. 🙂

    I just love how that tunic/dress? looks over the red skirt. And I like the larger photo – not in your face, just more clarity : )

    And thanks for the tip on Soia and Kyo – I'm loving the gray version of that coat – I don't think yours has appeared in a lookbook post yet!

    I still have a pair of boot from Hong Kong from over 3 years ago. I lo e the closer-up pic of you Tiffany! Don't be scared! The details pf what you're wearing are more visible and I think I'd love to have that soft wavy hair like yours.

    Gorgeous outfit! Not only do I love the boots, but I love the dress-over-the-skirt idea as well.

    You look great! So funny, I went to F21 yesterday with some money to burn and just walked around, getting overwhelmed with all the STUFF-good and bad-and just didn't have the energy for it all, I was going insane, so I left and went to other stores. Meaning-I TOTALLY know what you mean lol. Those boots are SO perfect, and the dress I LOVE! I'm going to go see if I can find it…
    TIFF your hair looks gorgeous, srsly. I like you in our faces! lol

    Ooo Tiffany I love this look on you. I agree with F21 dresses, a lot of them are quite short. I love how you paired yours with a mini.. you very own peplum! LOVE IT!

    xx Love & Aloha

    So many great things going on here. I'm inspired to try OTK boots now, even though I've been afraid of them in the past. I also love the idea of the slim skirt under a super short dress. Definitely trying that soon.

    I like how you put the skirt underneath.
    It looks so good that way.

    Oh my this outfit has to be a favourite of mine! (: i've been following your blog for awhile and i couldn't resist commenting on this look. Love, love, love the pop of bold colour of the skirt under!

    This is one of my fave looks of yours! And such a great tip about the skirts. F21's dresses are always so short.

  • MizzJ
    March 6, 2010 at 3:59 am

    Haha yes, F21 can get a little daunting at times – it's just too big!! This dress though is super cute and I like your hair here actually; it's different than your usual look and it fits the cute, casual vibe of the rest of your outfit.

    You are all sorts of cute! Love this outfit, I would have never thought of adding a skirt under the dress, you're so creative! I always love the fact you add links to match the look, you're just plain awesome! Plus, I love the bigger picture, sooo not in my face, just beautiful!
