Petite Fashion Challenge #3 is hosted this month by Petite Little Girl! Please be sure to visit her blog to see all the entries by fellow petites.
Who is your celeb style icon? Pick an outfit from your favorite celeb and show us how to recreate that look for less. Usually, your style icon reflects your personal style and also your body type. In this challenge, your style icon doesn't have to be a petite.
My style icon: Alexa Chung
I love Alexa's casual yet sophisticated style. She has a creative fashion sense and has the ability to mix and match different pieces to create a truly unique look.
The look that I'm recreating:
Express Grey Skirt - 0 (similar here)
Guess Buckle Platform Pumps - 5.5
Forever 21 Long Chain Bead necklace (similar here)
Sorry, I had to throw on heels instead of flats. A petite girl's gotta do what she can to be tall! I actually really liked this look, and it was definitely something that I wouldn't throw together normally. As I was putting all the pieces together, a part of me was thinking, "this is such a weird combination. let's hope it works..." In the end, I actually surprised myself by how much the outfit would be something I could actually wear to work! I love me some Alexa Chung even more now! ^_^
And, if this previous look didn't quench your thirst for "The Look For Less", I have a few more bonus looks that I put together as I was struggling to figure out the final outfit that I wanted to use for the challenge.
Second style icon: Carrie Underwood
L.A.M.B. Glance Booties - 5.5
This is definitely not an outfit I would wear outside of the house! I already ditched the tie that Carrie is sporting and switched it out for a long black necklace instead, but even with these changes, I feel uncomfortable in this outfit. It was definitely a fun look to try out, but I certainly don't have the guts to wear this out. Maybe some of you ladies are bolder than me... ^_^
Final style icon: Rachel Weisz
I saw this look and decided that my leopard/snakeskin print dress should come out of hiding. I seriously bought this dress years ago in college and have probably only worn it a couple times. I think this is a look I could possibly pull off if I were going out with friends to a fancy club, but otherwise, it'll probably go back into hibernation.
Here's a quick video of the looks:
Out of all these styles, which look do you guys prefer?
Hope you guys enjoy these looks as much as I enjoyed putting them together!
