This month’s Petite Fashion Challenge, hosted by Really Petite, is: Stylish for under $100: Put together a professional outfit (excluding shoes and accessories) for under $100. I had some trouble figuring out what to wear for this month’s challenge – I had originally planned to use a dress I bought back in November or December, but after last week’s Jason Wu for Target pop-up in Toronto, things changed. Instead, I decided to pair the Belize Blue blouse with a skirt I got from while on vacation in Hong Kong (I didn’t remember the exact price of the skirt, but it’s going for $79.90 here). Now, if we were to go with US pricing of the Target blouse, the outfit would be just slightly over $100, but the Toronto special was $20, making the skirt and blouse combo $99.90!
- Jason Wu for Target Pleated Belize Blue Blouse, XS $20 (yes, I know. It sold for less in Canada!)
- Zara Skirt: $79.90
- Belt: H&M, XS
- Shoes: Christian Louboutin Proratas, Size 34
- Bag: 442 McAdam
Of course, when paired with the shoes, belt and bag, the outfit would be well above $100. 🙂
This wasn’t my original PFC outfit. I had planned to wear a blue Zara dress I bought back in November, which was about $80, but I thought that it would be too plain-looking since I don’t really wear accessories (sure, I could have added a brooch or pin to the dress). This dress is no longer available in stores and some places (including online in the US) might still have the checkered version. I think I might want to wear a different belt with this dress. A tighter belt might make the dress look less boxy. What do you think?
- Shoes: Cole Haan, size 5
- Bag: Escada
