PFC# 17: Candy Colorize

I apologize for my lack of blogging lately. I haven't blog or been able to read any blogs for a while because I've had so many events that came up recently. It didn't help that during that time my mom, little sister and her husband, and their kids came to visit. I kept telling myself "hopefully I will be able to work on a post tomorrow"...well that tomorrow eventually became 3 weeks later.


There is no greater way to get back into blogging than to do a Petite Fashion Challenge. 




This month's Petite Fashion Challenge is hosted by the creative and talented DIY /Fashion blogger Sew Petite Gal. Make sure you stop by her blog to see the colorful outfits created by the lovely participants. 

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 **



I had a lot of fun with this PFC. It felt it was a very fun way to have someone experiment and step out of their comfort zone.

For this challenge I use Skittles and drew red, green, and yellow. Unfortunately before I got the chance to take a picture of the Skittles my husband and daughter ate them all. SMH. This was a tough one because red, yellow and green were colors that I didn't have much of. I tried to do the best I could with what I had.




First Outfit 
Wearing: Express Blouse XS, Express Skirt O, Forever21 Necklace, Jessica  Simpson Sling Pump -6


Second Outfit 


Wearing: Forever21 Blazer - S, Forever 21 Dress, The Limited Necklace, Jessica  Simpson Sling Pump -6

Thank you to Sew Petite Gal for hosting this month PFC. It was a fun challenge.

  18. Hehe, it's ok to take a hiatus on blogging because there's always Twitter ;)

    LOL @ your husband and daughter eating the SKittles. I think I would get along with them wonderfully, haha.

    Great job with both outfits - I can always count on you for office appropriate ensembles!

    1. Thanks Cee. I really need to step away from my office ensemble. I look to you for causal wear. You're a great inspiration.

  19. I prefer the first outfit bc the skirt looks great on you and it is hard to pull off red and yellow without looking like a Mc Donald's sign ;) I think you'd like my entry too, I chose the same colors and I picked 4 + a neutral! So I'm a tad more rainbow ;)
