The always lovely Jean over at ExtraPetite is holding the first ever Petite Fashion Challenge (PFC):
Create an outfit for weekend brunch with your girlfriends.
The outfit must include one garment that is typically notorious for being a petite "don't".
I chose to do a double petite don't: wide-legged pants (uh-oh) that end at the scary mid-calf length (noooo!). Why? Because I love a challenge! Just kidding... I'm clueless, and this was the only readily available item I found in my closet. And unfortunately, I was playing around with my dad's DSLR camera at the time, and the pics I took turned out pretty terrible in quality since I had no idea how to work the settings. But this was already last minute, so please bear with me!
The offending item in question is a pair of wide-legged white linen carpris, size XS from F21 that I bought many years ago because they amazingly fit my waist/hips. My first thought... throw in a fun print and class it up with some pearls and a pair of neutral, leg-elongating pumps.
I suppose the top is pretty offensive too in terms of length and fit. So I tried adding a belt:
And I guess if all else fails, tuck tuck tuck!
Blouse: LOFT Ruffle Neck Top, size XXSP (post)
Necklace: Nordstrom Glass Pearl Necklace in White
Belt: Ann Taylor Perfect Skinny Belt in Porcini, size S
Shoes: Ann Taylor Perfect Leather Pump in Porcini, size 5
What do you think? Do any of the outfit variations pass muster? Or should I give up on these linen capris?
