Lookbook: in action!

My first video lookbook!  And I think I’ve figured out the focusing issues so my next vlog will be much better than the last one.  But I do really appreciate you guys still watching that one as I know the quality was terribly lacking.  If you are wondering,  I’m using my Canon 5D mark II which is a dSLR camera with video capabilities meaning it’s not a true video camera.  There’s no handy auto focus like on regular video cameras so everything has to be done manually and when you are self shooting, it’s pretty much impossible!  A lot of people do use the 5d mark II as a video camera (I think it’s the camera of choice for many wedding videographers) but they also have to buy a lot of additional equipment to make proper videos (which I don’t have).  My husband shot today’s lookbook so he was able to control all the focusing so it’s a much better video to watch.  Hope you like it! I thought it was a fun way to do a lookbook and will try to do more in the future.  Let me know what you think!

What I’m Wearing:
Cardigan: Rag & Bone
Top: Madewell
Jeans: Rag & Bone
Shoes: Bally
Necklace: *gift from Diviene.com

Also, thanks so much to diviene.com for my pretty citrine necklace!  I’ve been wearing it so much lately and absolutely adore it.

These gray jeans have a bit of sparkle on them!  Or these jeggings are perfect and a great price.
These JS by Jessica Grace Pumps are a bit of a darker gray and I really like the shape of them. These pumps with a bow are pretty cute too.

I went with a pop of pink with the gray this time.  Having too much fun mixing and matching my nail colors!

    Soo cute Tiff! I can't believe it's warm enough still in Seattle to wear tank + cardi. 🙂 You really don't have to worry about focus so much, I think we ll love your videos regardless. (but I know that's the photographer/perfectionist in you!). P.S. I love the name of the OPI polish "Dim Sum".

    I absolutely love the electric blue cardigan. It seems I can't get enough of them. We wear the same sizes (except for shoes, I'm a 6.5), so I kind of get an idea of how things will fit me from your lookbooks.

    Jessica – thank you <3! And hope you get the YSL ring, it's one of my faves ever!

    DSK Steph – hehe, yes it is. It's a wonderful camera, I don't know what I'd do without it!

    Vivian – thanks for saying that, it makes me feel better 🙂 but yes, it does stem a bit from being a pro photographer and not having things look "right" but I am glad you all can forgive me for the terrible quality!

    CessOviedo – I love all the colors but glad I'm got it in this blue!

    Kinsey – thank you!

    Alterations Needed – thanks darling! and yes, the necklace is just what I needed in my sea of big flashy necklaces. Sometimes simple and pretty is all you need.

    Ohhhh video lookbook. LOVE it. I have seen millions of photos of the YSL arty rings, but seeing it in the video made me realize how awesome it truly is.

    Very cute outfit, great colors on you, and that top is adorable. Tell hubby he did a great job as videographer!
