Petite Fashion Challenge #13

Petite Fashion Challenge #13

This month's petite fashion challenge was hosted by www.reallypetite.com   The goal is to created a Stylish for under $100: Put together a professional outfit (excluding shoes and accessories) for under $100  or Bonus points if you can put together a completed outfit includes shoes and accessories for under $100.

I am so excited about this challenge, because that's basically my idea for my everyday outfit.  I tried to find good quality, stylish, and yet not pricy garments. You can still look good withouth going over the top of your budget.

Lately, I am really into color blocking garments.  This simple color blocking blouse fits my daily simple style.  I like how it's only the front that has the colors, and the back of the blouse is plain. 
The knit skirt from H & M is super soft, and is very simple in style can be worn over and over again with many other ensembles. 

    Blouse: $16.99 from Marshall
    Belt: $5.99 from Marshall, purchased long time ago.
    Skirt: $5.95 from H& M ( Recently)  it comes in many different colors.  
    Shoe: Open toe pump $29.99 New Twist from Marshall, purchased long time ago. 

Total: $58.92

Color Blocking Dress

Hi everyone, have a great weekend?

The weather is not totally warm up yet, but everywhere is selling spring/summer items.  I found this really cute color blocking dress, and can't wait to show everyone.  One of the trend for dresses is the short front ,long back hem line.  It creates the feminine, flowing, soft feeling.  I can't wait for the weather to warm up, so I can wear this dress.

Dress: Marshall
Sandal: Ellen Tracy (Marshall)

Lookbook: LBD Part I

Hello everyone:

having a great week?  I had a busy week, and can't for the weekend. : )
Recently, I just get my first LBD.  I know, I couldn't believe myself,too.  From TV to magazines, they all say LBD is a must have in closet.  I guess because of my work environment, I don't really need to dress up, so I never thought have getting a LBD.  I decided to give it a try, so I started with this simple quarter length sleeve LBD by H&M.    I like how this LBD is not too dressy, and also provide comfort.  It's 100% cotton and with tied string an the waist.  You can make it really tie, or leave it loose for casual look.  It also comes in different color.

Lookbook:Complementary Colors

Hello Everyone:

having great week so far?  Finally, the tempertaure is back to upper 70 degree.  Love the nice, but not too warm weather. : )
Spring's hottest hues are Neon, and Pastel colors.  I love the pastel colors, but not too much into neon's.  I saw some bright yellow, and green shoes and just don't really get it.  I picked up this cute scarf with some neon pink in it, and that's pretty much how I can take those neon colors.  ( BTW, I love scarves, and can never have enough of them.  : D  )

Lookbook:Layers with faux fur vest, shirt and trench coat

Hello Everyone:

weather is extremely unpredictable, my best choices is layering.  It went from temp.78 degree yesterday to 63 degree today.  I have my faux fur vest on layering with trench coat.  It's nice and comfortable.

The trench coat is light, has removable hood, and a belt.  The interesting part of this trench coat is the asymmetrical zipper, and the yellow lining which spiced up the trench coat little more.

The Bird-Print Charmeuse Blouses from Old Navy is really really cute.  The material is so soft, and perfect spring time. 

Trench Coat: Kenneth Cole from Ross (Old)
Vest: Faux fur vest (Old)

Lookbook:Black Blazer & Leopard Scarf

Hello Everyone:
It's Friday, yeah!  anyone is doing anything fun?
A classic black blazer is a must have.  You can dress it up , or dress it casual.  I am so lucky to be able to find this nice, good quality blazer at Marshall at $39.  It's quarter length sleeves with ruching details on the sleeves.  I like the small lapel, and the angle cut on the front of the blazer. It elongates my proprotion.  Most important, it fits me perfectly.  I don't have to do anything about it, and I feel so comfortable in it.  I couldn't be happier : )

Tee: Old Navy Ruffle Front Henley Top (Here)
Blazer: Gibson from Marshall (Similar)
Scarf: Marshall (Old)
Jean:Levi (Old)
Shoe:Open Toe Black Pump (Old)
Accessories: 4 Wired Beading Bangles (Old)

By the way, I decided to return both of the Jason Wu dresses.  It's just doesn't fit right, and the quality was not what I was expected.

Maxi Skirt or Pleated Skirt

Hello Everyone:

I had a little time before my class today, I headed to Forever21to see what's new in there.  There are so many items in there, and I don't know what I should  look for.  As I walked around the store, I noticed lots of bright, neon colors.  Spring is almost here, and it might be a good idea to look for skirts.  I know maxi, and pleated skirts are in trend, so it might be a good idea to look for something like this.  Here are the items I tried on.

I like this pleated skirt, because it's an elastic waist.  I can wear it as a skirt or pull it up as a strapless dress with a belt on to show waist.

I like the softness of this maxi skirt, but unfortunatelly, it's kind of sheer.  I don't know if I will be able to pull it off with this type of orange color.

I love the print and the 3D effect flower on this t shirt.  It's super soft, comfortable.  The length of this t shirt is a bit long for me.  If you like longer version t shirt, this will be a cute one.

Lookbook:Printed Blouse With Batwing Sleeves

Hello Everyone:

Recently I have noticed lots of printed blouse coming out for spring.  Besides the regular short/long sleeves.  I found this really interesting "Batwing Sleeves"  printed blouse from Marshall for $14.99



You can see the batwing sleeves better when arms are open.  Another interesting part of this blouse is it has a little botton on the back that pull the waistline in.

 When the button is releases, it will have a more boxy look.

Blouse: Marshall
Jean: Old
Shoe:Black Patent Pump(Old)

Jason Wu for Target Part II

Review and photos of 2 dresses by Jason Wu from Target.   I have to say, I was kind of disappointed on the sizing and the material of this line.  I was expecting a little bit better quality and sizing from this famous designer.

The 1st dress: Jason Wu for Target® Jersey Dress in Red/Navy Stripes  $34.99

The dress has no waistline, and this is in size:XS. It's very very boxy on me.

It looks much better after I put on a belt. 


2nd dress:Jason Wu for Target® Dot-Print Shirt Dress in Cream $39.99

Again, the dress ( size:XS) is very boxy on me, but I do like the pleated details on the front and the back of the dress. 

The dress looks so much better with a belt on. I tried to add some color to this dress by put on a green cardigan ( from Anntaylorloft, purchase couple years ago.) 


Should I keep either of those dresses?  Help!

Lookbook:Jason Wu for Target Part I

Hello Everyone:

hmm...........started with the Jason Wu for Target ............I didn't think it's going to be this big hit, but after reading several reviews from different bloggers,  it's a crazy day for the ladies  : )   I went into one of the close by target this afternnon, and almost everything from Jason Wu is gone.  I went to the dressing room, and looked around the rack, and spot a Jason Wu dress in XS ( wow! am I lucky or what? )  I didn't think the cut, or the print is very cute, but I decided to take it home and give it a try. ( will post the review, and photos tomorrow)

Here is the outfit I worn today!  I love my leopard Shoe : )

Cardigan: Bcbgeneration ( Old)
