Outfit 1 - Petite Fashion Challenge #7 "The Little Black Dress"

Well, I am finally joining in on the festivities! Let this be my first official fashion post!

Petite Fashion Challenge #7 "The Little Black Dress"
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.

The little black dress I chose is of pretty poor quality, but I appreciate the style and wouldn't mind finding something like it with better quality material.  Here, I firstly styled it with a chunky necklace and a pair of blue pumps.  We can hardly see my bracelets though.  Oh wells.  They're not important.  


Next, I added a crocheted vest from my most recent thrifting adventures. 


Now I added a blue clutch to match my shoes.  Royal blue is one of my favorite colors, and that was before this color became all the rage.  =P  I know that nowadays, it's not necessary to match shoes to purses, but does it look lame if we do?  Just something I'm pondering....Hmmm...

Better view of the accessories.

Here's a closeup of the shoes. I thrifted these shoes for $5, made in Spain!  I just love the color to death, and even though they are not my usual fare given the heel height, I just could not resist for the price and quality.

Dress: Ross 
Vest: Thrifted
Necklace: Target
Bracelet: Icings
Clutch: Target
Shoes: Saint Tropez - Thrifted

Well, if you made it this far, thanks for reading! 


  1. So many pretty shades of blue! I like how you kept it in the same color family, but switched up the hues! Cute!

  2. I, too, love the color combo and what a great deal on the shoes!

  3. The shoes! They are so pretty and what a deal! You did a great job with the challenge and the blue shades give it a totally different vibe. =)

  4. I am lusting after those shoes! So cute. :)

  5. Great job! My LBD isn't great quality either but I've had it for years! I love all the pops of colour and the clutch is gorgeous :)

  6. I love all the blues-- very fashion-forward! xoxo kiki

  7. Hooray for pairing the LBD with blue! I think all the different shades of blue here complement the outfit well. I wore blue with mine, too! :)

  8. My favorite is your blue shoes! only $5! I love those electric-blue hue (I'm seeing it lots on the Royal Wedding guests just now). I also think it's awesome your shoes are made in Spain (I'm so tired of all these things made in China right now). You make me want to hit the Thrift stores this weekend :)

  9. I love that turquoise necklace and the blue pieces! You did such a great job with great colours <3 Thank you for participating! : )

  10. Thanks everyone for your kind comments! So many comments regarding my shoes! They feel so loved! :)
