The challenge was as follows:
Create a sophisticated work appropriate look that has no more than one dark piece (it can be a skirt, pants, a blazer, sweater etc...) excluding shoes, accessories and hosiery.
So...I'm not sure how I did in the "sophisticated" aspect but I really don't have many bright main pieces! Most of my wardrobe consists of neutrals and I throw in colour with some individual pieces or accessories. My casual wardrobe on the other hand (especially in the Summer!) is a lot brighter.
Anyway, here it is!
Dress: mark by Avon
Necklace: mark by Avon
Boots: Me Too (Winners)
Tights: Ellen Tracy - NOT petite friendly!!!
I honestly don't know if this worked or not. I work in a casual environment and have worn this dress to work before with a cardigan but I do usually wear it in the Summer.
The dress is not a perfect fit on me, but the style of it isn't meant to be fitted. It's actually quite comfortable to wear - perhaps I should make a point to wear it more often!
I also wasn't sure what type of necklace to wear with this dress but I opted for something long since the neck on this dress is so high.
And here's a peak at the back of the dress. This is why I wouldn't be able to wear this dress to work without a sweater or blazer on top! I think the back is a bit revealing for an office. And please excuse my hair, I was having an unbelievably extra frizzy day when I took these photos so up into a hair tie it went!
I must say I'm loving these Petite Fashion Challenges as they are certainly pushing me to think more creatively! Here are my previous entries:
