It’s here, it’s here! Petite Fashion Challenge #4 is here 🙂 Every time these challenges are announced I think “oh I have plenty of time to do this” and every time I end up quickly snapping photos the night before. This one was no exception!
Create a holiday party look using festive colours and/or holiday pieces without looking like a greeting card.
I don’t really have many opportunities to dress up and I don’t like buying expensive dresses for one time wear (wedding dress excluded!) so I thought I would work with items that I currently have.
I’ve had this red dress for years – I honestly can’t even remember where I got it from. I decided that red would be my festive colour and I used really “blingy” accessories as my holiday pieces! And what’s more festive than a snowflake brooch? 😛
Dress: Unknown Brand size XS
Belt: Danier XS
Shoes: nine west size 7.5
The earrings are ridiculously huge but I love them all the same:
The pretty snowflake brooch that I got last year:
This bracelet is a bit big on me but I still love it. Makes any outfit special 🙂
The fun wasn’t just for petite bloggers but any petite that wanted to join in on the fun! I had an entry from Design Girl
“…for the holiday challenge, I decided to not go with the traditional colors but to go with a little bling on my shirt and keep the rest simple and comfy. I just got this shirt from Express delivered today and I already love it. It’s a pale pink and is sheer with a black floral pattern and some black and silver bead embellishment. I styled it with a pencil skirt to wear to a work holiday party (tucked in so you don’t see the gather at the waist) and with jeans for a holiday get-together with the girls.”
I mentioned to Design Girl that I can see why she loves the blouse so much! I think it’s so unique and pretty and obviously versatile!
“Oh, and I never could get my shoes in the photo, which is why I am holding them.”
Blouse: Express embellished pleated sleeve Tandori shirt in XS (it doesn’t look like it’s still available online, but I ordered in on Black Friday and think it’s probably still in some stores)
Tank top: Ann Taylor Loft XSP lace tank top, old
Skirt: Express tweed high-waist buckle-back pencil skirt in size 00 (I’m 5’1 and I think I need to get it hemmed 1 to 2 inches.)
Thanks Design Girl for your submission – I hope you start your own Petite Blog soon! 🙂
