Petite Fashion Super Stripe Challenger Person

Or as they say in the biz, PFSSCP. I don't know who they are or what biz, but don't question the PFSSCPness!




Petite Fashion Challenge #6 is hosted by the lovely Jess of Stylepint. The challenge: Dress up your basics. In short (no pun intended), wear a tee and a pair of jeans and dress it all up. My abbreviated description is partly due to laziness and partly a ruse to have you press the pretty PFC button. (But make sure you come back here!)

Here is my attempt:

I thought I'd spare you the pics with the
jacket unbuttoned. They were gut-a-rific!

I have no idea what I'm doing. I don't have flavored lipstuff.

Jen-in-a-cube. Earrings: Little Charm.

I'm wearing a gray Old Navy raglan tee and Kut from the Kloth jeans. These are an older pair but I still love them. I have two newer pairs but they have brown stitching and I thought the blue would match the gray better. These used to be longer but I managed to shrink them, so no super high heels today. I really wanted to wear my one pair of platform heels that I've featured a lot lately to really dress it all up, but it would have looked really funny. I can't remember if Kut offers petites sizes. These are a regular and since I bought them during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, the hemming was free.

I put together this outfit in my head and almost ditched the velvet jacket. I thought it would be too dressy, but that's the name of the challenge. I think it worked?

Check out all of the other PFC participants tomorrow. Yep, believe it or not, I'm early. See, I have a meeting tomorrow where one of the Presidents of our company is speaking, so I can't wear jeans. Well, I doubt we'll make eye contact so he probably wouldn't notice if I was wearing pajamas, let alone jeans. But, my managers will notice. When it's suggested that we dress like we're going on an interview, I should at least halfway attempt. TBC tomorrow . . .

Oh yeah, one more thing: I'm linking up with Jewelscapes, a Taste of T, and probably something else.

  2. I am a huge fan of the velvet blazer with jeans, it's the perfect way to make a really dressy look.
    And the PFSC sounds fun - as a fellow shortie, I should have known about this!

  4. Love this outfit, its a perfect way to "dress up your basics". And I love the shorter sleeve blazer with the longer sleeve tee! Also, I'm pretty sure as a fellow blogger I'm supposed to admonish you for your headline and tell you how beautiful you, but I think it is absolutely hilarious!! :) "because short chubby people who can't afford couture wear clothes, too" Heehee!

  9. This is one of my favorite outfits of yours EVER! I wanted to put like a gazillion exclamation points at the end of that sentence but thought it might be overkill. Seriously tho - the b&w and jeans and grey and loooooong sleeves are way too good-looking on you. Well done, woman.

  11. That velvet jacket is fabulous! It does great things for your figure. Love it!

  12. I think the jacket pulled together the casual tee/jeans to be more professional and more work-appropriate. Now I want a short sleeve jacket!

  13. I'm loving the way you tied the scarf as a tie. A great feminine take on it. I'll have to use this as an inspiration one day!
