A Candy-Coloured PFC 17, a HuffPo Mention and Giveaway Reminder

The 17th Petite Fashion Challenge, hosted by Sew Petite Gal asks: 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.

I don’t really have candy in my house, so I used my imagination, picking a light blue, a green and an orange. so here I am:

  • Dress: Equipment
  • Cardigan: LOFT (really old – they were still Ann Taylor LOFT when I bought it – probably 2008-ish)
  • Shoes: Emyloo Shoes, size 4 1/2
  • Belt: Club Monaco

Thanks so much for hosting, Sew Petite Gal!

By the way, Huffington Post Canada contacted me a few days ago, asking me for some advice on petite sizing.  Here’s the final article, where many petite-favourite brands, including Allison Izu, J.Crew and H&M are mentioned. And finally, a reminder about our Murale make-up case and samples giveaway!  Ends on July 15.

    I love the colors of the dress 🙂 Bright and summery


    •  Glad you like the colours. I had a hard time putting the outfit together!  Wasn’t sure if it was going to work out.

    I’ve never tried an Equipment dress, I wasn’t sure they’d be petite friendly! Did you have to alter it? I looove the color!

    •  No, it wasn’t altered.  I think it was meant to be a tunic top or mini dress on someone taller.

    Congratulations on the mention! The light blue cardigan compliments the orange dress very well.
