Petite Fashion Challenge #1

Here’s my outfit for PAG‘s first Petite Fashion Challenge!

The Challenge:

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.” Such garments include: dresses, skirts, or pants that hit at the scary mid-calf length (not cute, cuffed jeans…I’m talking real capris) or below the knee, maxi dresses, full A-lined skirts, or wide-legged pants.

I do have a pair of wide leg 7 for Mankind jeans but I decided to go with a certain item I havn’t worn out yet because frankly, it’s a SERIOUS Petite “Don’t”.

I was out shopping with my mom last year and found this gorgeous black silk jumpsuit at Macy*s for $15. Great deal! Funny thing was, it was a returned item and the tag had either fallen off or cut out. So I bought it without knowing its actual size…all I know is that it’s from BCBG. I suspect that this is a size Small or Medium.

Anyway onto the pictures!

This is a doozy of a Petite “Don’t” because it’s

  1. A jumpsuit… with a long length like a maxi dress
  2. The pant legs are EXTREMELY wide and can make me look stumpy

I removed the black silk belt that came with it, pulled on a stretchy belt from F21 and wore my nude patent Rebecca Taylor pumps that look good with just about everything. In some of the pictures I look like I’m not wearing any shoes though… it shows how wide the pant legs are. Wide enough to swallow up my shoes and then some.

I’m really happy I did this challenge because even though the pant legs are super wide I feel like I have the confidence to pull it off (as long as I wear some shoes with height!). Silly thing is, I have a black maxi that looks similar when viewed from the side. I shouldn’t have been so afraid of wearing this. Now all I need is an occasion to wear this jumpsuit out! hehe.
