Lookbook: The quest for pink jeans

What I'm Wearing
*Madewell Soft Silk Boyshirt - as seen in my shopping post.  I went back and got it later.  (sold out online but my store had a ton in stock.  Here's the item info if you want to call them about it.)  This one in "sleek charcoal" is practically the same.
*BlankNYC Skinny jeans - on sale and Madewell is doing 30% off sale items! (and ebates it to get  4% cashback!)  Get them at a great price!  They are true to size and although they fit fab in the legs and the waist, the crotch part is a little baggy and creates a bit of the "wrinkly crotch" effect.  It's not uncomfortable but looks a little funny so now I'm mostly wearing them with my shirts untucked.
*t+j Designs Silver Baubles Necklace - one of my favorite necklaces to wear for everyday.  It looks so much better on, I get so many compliments on it whenever I wear it.
*t+j Designs Silver Edge Bangle and Modern 3 Stone Ring  - take 40% off all Sale items!  use code EXTRA40.
*Miu Miu Bow Bag  - I just saw that Valentino's lower end line RED Valentino has a bunch of cute bow bags!   This is a great size tote, but I'm totally in love with this satchel.  I think I'm going to get it in the nude color.  But after seeing this bow tote, I'm contemplating it as well as I've been wanting a navy blue bag.  For leather, it seems like a good price!
*Christian Louboutin Bianca pump - (also in black)  my gray flannel ones were from last year so they don't have them anymore.  These shoes are one of my top 3 favorite shoes ever.  Every time I wear them, I feel fabulous! :)  Thank you to my husband who got them for me, the guy has great taste ;) If you are thinking about getting the Biancas, one word of caution, they are VERY high and only for the super stable high heel walker.  They can be pretty bad ankle twisters if you aren't careful!

I have been on a hunt for pink jeans for the longest time.  I started with these cute ones from Zara but they ended up quite mishapen and unsightly to wear (super baggy in weird places) after only 2 wears.  I wanted to invest in a pair like my rag and bone jeans that I adore but I couldn't find the perfect pink.  UNTIL!  I went to Madewell and fell in love with these BlankNYC skinny jeans.  They are pink but not too pink and look great with so many colors.  I've totally embraced the whole colored pant trend.  I did a huge order with J Crew when they were doing 30% off everything.  I opened the box and my husband said "woh, color explosion!"  I ended up getting the toothpick jeans in a bright yellow, the Cafe Capri in warm jade and the Minnie Pant in vibrant flame and a few other things.  Unfortunately as much as I loved all the pants, I had to return two of them for sizing issues.  The Cafe Capri in a 0P was huge and the toothpick jeans in my regular size 25 was a size too big as well.  Not sure what's going on with J Crew sizing, it's been wacky lately!  For reference, the Minnie pant in a 0P fit perfectly.

So, where are you guys shopping at?  Any good deals?  Turns out a ton of stuff I ordered during the Christmas sales didn't work out for me so I had to return a bunch of stuff (and ahem Barney's canceling my order 17 days after I placed an order for shoes is so annoying.) so I'm itching to score on some deals since most of my stuff didn't work out!

Two new posts on the smarter blog!  My suggestions for affordable new year's eve dresses and the best dry skin solutions that I've found to help me out in this winter weather.

  3. Love your outfit, perfect colors :)

    I heard about the Barney's mishap, no bueno!

    The RED Valentino Bow Navy Blue Bag is fabulous!

    All the J. Crew pants you ordered I love and want so bad, since I can't use jeans on a day to day basis, I was only able to order a couple Blythe blouses in Neon Azalea (LOVE) and Maraschino Cherry (LOVE).

    I have a budget friendly version of the Grey Flannel Bianca's (Steve Madden) and I was so disappointed when they were damaged on the first wear (*sobs*), there's a huge cut in the front of the platform. Yours were always on my wishlist and I will continue to dream about them.

    running over to madewell tonight...those jeans are adorable!

    btw - i have been away from blogging for a very long time (health) and just realized you had a jewelry line! I made an order last night and can't wait to receive it :)

  4. I love the whole outfit especially that bag (to die for!) I don't think I could pull off those pants but you pull them off flawlessly. You look great!

  5. I am wondering...do you ever work out?

  6. @Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* ooh, I love the Blythe blouses! Sorry to hear, but I'm glad you are back! :) thanks for ordering, I hope you'll love it!

  7. @LLJY I work out about 2-3 days out of the week, in the summer it's more like 3-4 times. Are you trying to tell me I should work out more? :) it's the holidays and I've been slacking a bit but I'm getting back to into it!

  8. What a great outfit, I love the pop of color on the pants. I have been eyeing this trend lately but have not taken the plunge, you have tempted me ;)

    Hope you had a great holiday!

    Come check out my blog for a review of Sharp Hill Designs ;)

  11. Yay for finding the perfect jeans! That's my favorite hue of pink, pairing it with gray was a great idea, a combo you don't see often! Keep enjoying the holidays sweetie!

  12. Hey tiffany, I'm extremely extremely interested in getting a Miu Miu bow bag, but have seen some horrible reviews on TPF. So many complaints about the leather wearing off quickly, and scratches everywhere. Do you find this is true for your bow bag? It's quite an investment for the leather not to be of good quality. It's so gorgeous though! Thanks!

  17. Love these pants! They are so amazing! I just purchased a red pair and I've been getting so much wear out of them! These might have to be my next purchase!

  21. Those are a fabulous pink jean! I got a pair from JBrand but wished they weren't so pink...I often wonder if they are border line Pepto Bismol pink haha!

  22. @Beautygirl24 Hi Noelle! I haven't read the reviews myself so I wasn't aware! Mine has kept in fantastic shape. I haven't noticed scratches and the leather is great, it's getting softer as it ages which I love.

    You are right, it's quite an investment if the leather wears off but I haven't found that with my bag at all! I also don't use my bag more than 3 days in a row, so I wonder if it helps that I don't use it as often? Not sure but like I said, mine still looks great and I do recommend getting it!

  23. @blondieesquire yay! I saw your order, I'm so glad you got it too! The pictures don't do this necklace justice, I think you will love it, it pairs so nicely with so many outfits.

  24. I am in love with that shade of fuchsia, paired with the grey!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Tiffany, I love the color combo too! You actually look like you lost weight. Happy New Year!

  26. dang it. just as I was checking out, the rag and bones were sold out :( I hope you got to them before they were gone!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the shade of your jeans, they look like the perfect pink-purple mix. I have a more mauve shade of jeans from F21 that are pretty

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great pink! Too bad that they are a little baggy at the crotch. I have the same problem with many pants. But an untucked shirt is a good solution. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I heart this outfit so much! That pink looks so good!

    I know you're picky about pants/jeans, but I've recently bought/received two pairs from Target. It's the mossimo brand, juniors sizing, but they fit pretty well. Oddly, one pair fits better on my waist than the other, but I'm not gonna complain too much. They come in bright red, green, purple, coral, cobalt blue...um, I think that's all the colors. And they're around $20.

  30. I like your pink jeans. I got myself a pair of light pink Versace which cost an arm and a leg years ago. Got one wear out of it and I cut it to become shorts. Darker color is better.

  31. Love the pink jeans! Of course I've been on the perfect pink jeans hunt too since I saw Cameron Diaz in a pair in the spring. I haven't been out shopping yet, stuck at home sick actually. But I hope to get out to scope out some after xmas sales!

  35. those jeans are absolutely the perfect shade of pink. i want them so badly! you look amazing in them, tiffany. love how you coordinated the outfit with shades of gray. LOVE! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Those jeans are such a beautiful pink! I kind of see what you mean about the "wrinkly crotch" issue, but I don't think it's all that bad - they're definitely workable!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  38. cute pants! i was looking for the red pants at madewell the other day when the salesperson told me that "pink is the new red".. lol! looks great!

  42. @bevy oh yeah! Last time I was at target, I spotted them and got them in green. I like the color but the fit isn't that great on me. The waist keeps on slipping down but for $20 I can't complain too much. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. @LLJY haha, thanks :). I actually like baking itself more than eating it! Like I ate 1 slice of the pound cake and then my husband and friends ate the rest.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thats such a pretty color on the jeans...matches your blog. Haha I want that top! I would probably be one of the people to twist my ankle in those heels. :-P

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ooh I really like this combo! I've never been a fan of grey, but I like the way your pants' pink color compliments the grey and makes it look more vibrant. Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I LOVE this outfit, by far one of my favorites!

  47. I love the pink and gray. You make me want to run out and buy pink jeans but there is no way I would look as good in them as you do! Gorgeous! -Dreama
