Petite Fashion Challenge #17: Candy Colourized

Yay I’m excited after my slacking to participate in this month’s Petite Fashion Challenge! You’ll notice I “Canadianized” the title swapping “colorized” for “colourized” :P.

This month’s challenge is a really creative one and it’s being hosted by the ever lovely Sew Petite Gal.

The Challenge: Candy Colorized

Take a bowl full of colorful candies (M&Ms, Jolly Ranchers, jelly beans, etc.), close your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces.  Now use those colors (+ a neutral of your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble.

**Extra brownie points if you post more than 1 colorful ensemble or if you add a DIY element (because I love DIYs so much!) :D**

I love this idea! But I have to admit I cheated…I actually don’t eat candy that often and all the candy I like my husband hates LOL! So I thought about what my favorite candies were and at the moment they are mini eggs, jelly bellies and fruit mentos!
Here we go with the cheating – I picked two colours – yellow and pink to be my colours for this challenge. And my neutral is white (finally got white jeans woohoo!)
My failed attempted at channeling my inner Callandra

The shoes are actually more vibrant in real life. I love them they’re so comfortable! Please don’t mind my overall messiness – I’m quite frazzled most days lately :P And yes you see we have no floors. This summer is all about the renovations.

Jacket: Banana Republic Factory 00P
Jeans: Banana Republic Factory 25/0P
Shoes: Calvin Klein from Winners size 7
Bracelets: mark by Avon and Pandora
Huge thanks to Sew Petite Gal for hosting! Be sure to check out all the other participants!

    Ah, I like the yellow & white against each other. Very bright!

  • Cher

    Ha! I did notice the spelling of “colourized”. I do make a conscious effort of trying to “Americanize” all my spelling otherwise I risk being made fun of by my American friends. =/ Love the white and yellow together.

  • Petite LG

    We both cheated…LOL =) Yellow is definitely your color, Elaine! I am drawn to yellow this summer.

    I went a little crazy with this challenge, thinking we were to chose 3-4 candies, I chose 4 and added a neutral. 1 of the picks was yellow!

    Thanks Jessy! At first I thought it would be way too bright for me, but pairing it with dark jeans or black didn’t seem right :)

  • TOBeautyReviews

    LOL Cher :P

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Thanks Sydney! Yes, after I got this jacket my eyes have been drawn to other yellow items :)

  • TOBeautyReviews
