SewPetiteGal is a supermom with an knack for DIY on just about anything! From bracelets to necklaces, to even a removable peplum, SPG is so hands on talented. This month, SPF hosts the Petite Fashion Challenge #17 – Candy Colorized.
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
My worst color combo nightmare: Green and Red.
How am I going to NOT look like a christmas tree!?!?!?
Why am I wearing glasses? Because I have pink eye! I got pink eye from my mascara. It was a Sephora sample from Dior. I think I’ve used it only a handfull of times. But did you know that mascara only lasts for 6 months? I did not know that. I have had this mascara for almost a year. Well it gave me pink eye.

April’s Petite Fashion Challenge is hosted by the lovely Megan at Long Live Classy. She has such a vibrant and fresh persona.
This month’s fashion challenge is: Chic Pin-spiration– Find a pic of an outfit you love on Pinterest, and re-create it the best way possible!

I chosed this outfit from Atlantic-Pacific because I have similar items in my wardrobe. I don’t have an all weather military trench like Blair but I do have a field jacket. I do love how casual she makes the outfit yet it’s still polished.
Pinterest is so addicting. I can spend hours on the site and there are so many pictures that just pops out and makes me want every outfit. Thank you Megan for hosting this great fashion challenge. It was truly so difficult to find the right picture and make it one’s own.
This month’s Petite Fashion Challenge is hosted by the cool and sophisticated Couture Coco. I love her blog. She has a sassy fashion sense.
Holiday Emergency Senario
You have a pre-booked dinner date on the first day of your holiday. But the emergency is your luggage is delayed. So this month’s challenge is to style your travel outfit into a special evening look using whatever you carry in your purse and anything else immediately at hand (ie no running out to buy a new outfit!).
Top: Banana Republic Silk Blouse with Mandarin Collar and Side Pleats (similar here), Ann Taylor Loft Sleeveless Tank (similar here)
Jacket: Yesstyle StyleKelly Tweed Jacket (similar here)
Bottoms: A/X Jeggings (simialr here)
Shoes: Ann Taylor Loft Suede Pumps
Belt: Banana Republic Braided Metallic Belt (similar here)
Handbag: Chanel Wallet On Chain in Dark Red (similar here)
Jewelry: Jewelmint Persephone Pendant (here)
When I travel, I travel light, usually one carryon, and my handbag. The senario is if I had lost my luggage or its been delayed, I know that bag would have contained non essentials, like my party dress, dressy trousers, hair tools and products.
What I like about this outfit is that super comfortable. I know that I would have these pieces on hand in my carryon. A pair of jeggings, a loose silk blouse, a blousy sleevless tank, and a pair of heels. Oh and I can’t forget the jacket. I easily get cold, so a jacket is always nearby.
I love doing these fashion challenges because it pushes my creativity to another level. First I don’t think I would have layered at all. But the photos show that layering creates this dimension of color that I really like. I would have just worn the silk blouse, grabbed my coat and gone out. Next is the belt. By belting the loose fitting shirts, I created a waistline. Otherwise the shirts would make my body look like a pillow.
I’m always open to suggestions on how to make an outfit better. I’m learning myself, so I’m in no way saying I’m an expert.
Thank you Annie of ReallyPetite.com for hosting this Petite Fashion Challenge. Her style is so chic and effortless. I adore her Fashion For Less outfits series and I hope she continues to do more posts like that. This is my first PF Challenge! Hope everyone likes my outfit.
