I decided to enter the Petite Fashion Challenge #4 hosted by Curls and Pearls at the very last minute. Not because I have something real nice and fancy to enter, it's mainly because I feel guilty of withdrawing out of the #3 challenge at the last minute. So for better or worse, I'm entering, so please read on.
Petite Fashion Challenge #4: Holiday Party
The challenge:Create a holiday party look using festive colours and/or holiday pieces without looking like a greeting card.
I was sitting at the dinner table last night without any pictures of this challenge. Yes, I'm a procrastinator. When I mentioned it to my family that I didn't know what to do with it, my daughter chimed in, "You can wear a red dress!" she said. I have a red dress. I bought it for my wedding reception in Cleveland, and haven't worn it since. "Do you have a white coat?" My husband didn't want to feel left out. He's always so helpful. "White coat?" I asked skeptically. What exactly can a white coat do? "Well, the color white is very festive and winterish." He explained. I do have a white down coat. Never wore it, still has the tag on. I can definitely try. My daughter then added, "You can wear a green scarf!" I do have a green scarf I picked up from Old Navy a few weeks ago. So I was all set to try it out. Here we go:
While I was uploading my work outfit yesterday, I realized that the outfit was pretty festive too. So I will share it here also:
Shell: JCrew grosgrain gather top. (petite 0)
Cardigan: Loft (old)
Tulip skirt: Theory
T-strap: Charles David (buy it here)
Pearl necklace: Sister's gift
