Lookbook: Plaid About You

Okay, since I didn’t seem to offend anyone with my bigger picture, I’m going to try it out for a bit. A lot of you were right, it does help to see the outfit more clearer so I hope it helps. I’m still not sold on it though. You know, my face, in your face and all! Nobody needs a life size Tiffany coming out of their computer. lol!

Oh and guess what I figured out? For those of you that like to read blogs on your phone, you can finally read my new posts here without all the stuff on the sidebar to slow your browser down.

This top is actually a dress but I felt like wearing plaid that day and didn’t like any of my shirts so just tucked the dress into my jeans. I seem to have accumulated a lot of plaid stuff over the past year and luckily I’m still not sick of it. I love the big checks of this dress.

What I’m Wearing:
Cardigan: J. Crew
Top: Can’t remember the brand but it’s Korean
Jeans: 7 for all Mankind
Shoes: Bally
Headband: Forever 21

Trying out the red lips again. You know my problem with red lipstick? It always gets on my teeth! I feel like an idiot when I look in the mirror later on and realize that my teeth are smeared with red lipstick. Any tips of how to stop that?


I’m a headband junkie, I have so many but don’t wear them that often. I just like to buy them so, lately I’m trying to incorporate my hair accessories into my looks.

Shop the Lookbook:

Threadsence Plaid Flannel Dress
This one is super similar to mine. And thanks to Grechenscodes.com, use the code “Grechen” for 20% off your order. Ends on 3/22

But if you don’t want to tuck in a whole dress into your jeans (a bit annoying and bunchy) here’s a cute shirt.

Civil Smith Addison Plaid Shirt

or this cute ruffle plaid shirt.

J. Crew Perfect Fit Cardigan

Isn’t this cropped one cute? I just put my order in for this metallic cardigan, can’t wait to get it! And I know this would totally not go with this outfit but this little lace cardi/shrug is adorable.

7 For All Mankind Gwenevere Ankle Zip Jean
These are mine but since I’m such a shorty, they fit longer on me. The best part of ankle jeans for regular height people is that I don’t have to get them hemmed!

The same jeans but in gray would look great with this outfit. I really like these Cheap Mondays with zippers all over.

BALLY Women’s Zerene-238 Pump
These look a lot like mine but they don’t have the gray anymore. However, I’m convinced everyone needs a pair of nude pumps and these look great.

I love these Moschino pumps as well. I think that sand color will look fantastic with so many spring outfits. These are a similar gray to mine and with 3 inch heels great for those of you that don’t want to wear the super high heels.

Aldo Derricott
I just love bow headbands. The perfect girly touch.

Wet Seal Chiffon Flower Headband
Isn’t this one totally cute too? And only $6!

    When you apply the red lipstick, take a finger and just slide it through your mouth to get any extra lipstick on the inside of your lips that would get on your teeth. That should do the trick!

    I'm really in love with black and white plaid lately! And I'm DYING for that wet seal headband! Honestly, you don't often show things I can afford without guilt, but that I can do!

    I love the pairing of the sweet headband with the more geometric and clean lines of the black and white plaid. Fabu!
    I agree with the first comment, I have always read to pop your finger in and remove it with all excess lipstick- gross unless you are at home in your own bathroom with clean hands and privacy but it works!

    Love the B&W with the pop of red lips Tiffany! I agree with the others' trick for red lips. My problem is having to constantly re-apply or I'll just be left with the perimeter of my lips with color and the center all gone. I'm such a headband junkie too! Love that Wet Seal one!

    I don't know how to describe it exactly, but you put your finger in your mouth to wipe off any red lipstick that has gone too much towards the inside of your lips!

    I do the finger trick every time I wear bright lipstick. Just put your finger in your mouth, pucker your lips around your finger, and then slide your finger out of your mouth. The excess lipstick is gone!
    DiamondsandTulle – You should apply a lip liner all over your lips before applying lipstick. That should help it stay in the center longer.

    such a gorgeous look. i love the shoes here as well. and you should wear your headbands more if you look this good in all of them.

    I aree with all the lipstick tips as to avoiding it getting on your teeth in the first place; but afterwards? to avoid the reapplying & fading, is to use Covergirl's outlast collection.

    I know that sounds like a plug, but it really isn't. I'm not a huge fan of all of their colours either, but I tend to use their "topcoat" that comes with their all day lipcolour, on my other lipsticks, and it works like a charm [:
