Petite Fashion Challenge #15: Chic Pin-spiration

This month's Petite Fashion Challenge is hosted by pretty Megan of Long Live Classy. Thank you for hosting this month's challenge.




The Challenge: "Chic Pin-spiration-- Find a pic of an outfit you love on Pinterest, and re-create it the best way possible"!


I love the Petite Fashion Challenge because it forces me to be more creative and step outside of my comfort zone. For this challenge I wanted to utilize the clothes that I already have in my closet.  I am guilty of running to the store to get a new outfit if I am going to an event. =)



I love this outfit from Lucky Magazine. I didn't have a striped top so I used my striped Express dress and folded in the extra material to create a makeshift top. I used my daughter's sash from her dress for the bow tie. 



Wearing Forever 21 Lace dress Sz-S, Express Dress -0, Ann Taylor Perfect Pump 5.5, Used daughter's dress sash as a neck tie, Charolette Russe Floral Bracelet, The Limited Blazer -Sz 0




I can't wait see the what the other participants came up with. Check out the other ladies outfits here

  1. Ohh...I remember seeing and really liking that outfit in my Lucky Magazine too! So brave of you to recreate it! When I saw it, I thought it looked complicated, but now I see it's just a lace dress over a striped tee. Surprisingly simple!
