Petite Fashion Challenge #4

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!  

The challenge:

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? :P

Dress:  Unknown Brand  size XS
Belt:  Danier XS
Shoes:  nine west size 7.5
Accessories:  Avon

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."

Outfit details:
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! :)

There was a really great turn out for this challenge.  Please check out all the other petite bloggers that participated in the challenge:

This challenge was definitely harder than it seemed!  Can't wait to see what all the other ladies came up with!!  ***(If I've missed you I apologize - let me know and I'll add you ASAP!)***
