Petite Fashion Challenge #7: LBD

This month, Jessy of The Little Dust Princess hosted the Petite Fashion Challenge #7. The challenge was based upon the little black dress.

Petite Fashion Challenge

The Challenge

A little black dress (LBD) is essential in every woman’s wardrobe. It’s always great for back-up if you run out of outfit ideas for a night out. Adding a pop of colour to your LBD will change up its look and make your dress a little less boring.

For this challenge, add a pop of colour (or two) to your little black dress to change up the look. You could add anything from an accessory to a blazer, or even nail polish!

A Refined Scout

Have you ever experienced love at first sight with a garment?

I didn’t think it existed until I saw this skirt on final sale online. It has this utilitarian vibe similar to the military and safari styles that have been making the rounds for spring. Plus, the silhouette is so classic and feminine, it makes me want to twirl endlessly or join a swing dance troupe.

Nothing Quite Like Reality

San Francisco Mission District, Andalu Restaurant. Brunch.

On a brisk Saturday afternoon, I made my way to the city for a blogger meetup. What initially began as a small gathering, swelled to an intimate party of 30+. The energy was upbeat, relaxed, and informal…conversations were filled with talk about photography, new stores, and blog resources. Egos were checked at the door and everyone mingled like nobody’s business.

A Little Help Goes a Long Way

If you’ve read my tweets yesterday, you’d know that I didn’t take these outfit photos. A random dog walker happened upon my ridiculousness with my remote and offered to take some photos for me.

She’s a hobby photographer who takes photos for her aspiring fashion designer friends, so she knew the ropes. I wasn’t prepared to have a photographer, so I was kind of nervous. But she was really kind and the shots turned out way better than my own.

So thank you ASHLEY! You’re awesome!

A Thrifty Metamorphosis

Every so often, I get bored of mainstream stores and I’m unwilling to pay premium prices at the local boutiques, so I head over to the thrift stores to see what treasures can be found with only $20 in my pocket.

Most things don’t come in my size, so I was mainly looking for items with a great style, fabric, or material that can be altered to fit my frame. When I go thrifting, I usually have something in mind so I’m not checking out the entire store. I set my sights on colorful tops, skirts, and dresses so I’ll have “new” clothes for the spring/summer season.

Mistakes and Imperfections are OK

When it comes to blogging, I always want to put my best foot forward. Always look presentable, look alive, and obviously, stay interesting.

But that isn’t realistic and nobody’s perfect. So this post is dedicated to all the goofs and gaffes along the way. I’ve included a few outtakes from my recent outfit posts. Have a few laughs, I know I do.

Unedited and uncut.

Interview: Qi – Ainsley

A while ago, I was notified of a new branch of Qi Designs, Ainsley. This new line was fresh, refined, and had a cool sophistication. The inspiration for this collection were the 70’s fashion icons: Ali McGraw, Diane Keaton, and Bianca Jagger.

I admired the pieces and when you break it down, each item is so versatile and wearable.  So, I emailed Qi: Ainsley and I got an interview with Kosi, Ainsley’s marketing manager.
