    Petite Fashion Challenge # 17: Candy Colorized

    I am a little excited as this is my first time participating in a Petite Fashion Challenge. I still remember when these petite fashion challenges first began, but I never got around to joining in on all the petite fashion fun. So, here’s my first go… The Petite Fashion Challenge this month was hosted by the lovely petite fashionista, SewPetiteGal. The challenge was this: Take a bowl full of colourful candies, close your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces.  Now use those colours (+ a neutral of your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble. My two main colours were light green and purple. I used a minty green blouse and…

    Petite & Pregnant Kourtney Kardashian

    (images FameFlyNet.uk.com, MAP / Splash News)   A radiant Kourtney Kardashian steps out with a full belly and fast-growing Mason on hand. I think she’s looking gorgeous in this billowing black maxi dress with a pop of neon/hot pink blazer and minimal accessories. I’m also glad to see her wearing flats following her near-fall accident back in April wearing her black Louboutins. This petite celeb is perhaps my favourite of the Kardashian sisters, not only because she’s the smallest at 5’0″ (Kim is 5’2″ and Khloe is 5’10”), but she definitely knows how to rock an effortlessly chic look and rarely goes OTT. Love! Ps: How adorable is Mason Disick!…

    Forever 21 Coral Sweater

    During the week I stepped out and embraced the glorious Queensland winter weather. Clear blue skies, crisp sweet air and sunshine. Outings these days rarely exclude a stop over at my new-found favourite cafe for an extremely worthy cappuccino from Brother. Mmm… It was the first time I wore my Forever 21 sweater out to coffee. This is a size S which I found to be a little big in the shoulders. With this looseness up top, I roll up the sleeves to make it look a little less saggy around the arms- It also helps keep the sleeves in place. I love the white collar printed onto the vibrant…

    Petite Coats for An Aussie Winter

    Australia is all behind when it comes to fashion, only because our seasons are half a year behind what seems to be the rest of the world. Not literally, but in terms of fashionable countries Oz is a little behind. When UK and the US are celebrating summer outfits, poor ole’ Australia still has to go through winter. Winter was my favourite when I lived in the UK. It was all about the layers, the coats, the scarfs, the felts fedora’s… the boots! Ah… winter boots from Pretty-Small-Shoes are the best. Anyways, Brisbane winter doesn’t get too cold. It’s currently 17 degrees (or thereabouts) so there’s no need for puffy…

    Petites I Meet: ‘Lena from Sweden’

    INTERVIEW WITH LENA: How tall are you? 5 feet. 150 cm What is the best thing about being petite? People say I’ small and cute, people find me very friendly and not scared of me. What is the worst thing about being petite? Not being able to reach things and not being able to buy clothes and shoes. What is the hardest outfit to find? Definitely pants! I’ve never bought a pair of pants I’ve never had to hem. My mum (who lives in Sweden) would usually hem pants for me or there’s an alterations place in city where I go. I really should learn to hem, as it’s really…

    Petite Peplum, Lady Gaga-Style

    When it comes to all sorts of trends you can always rely on petite super-celeb, Lady Gaga, to take it a step further. Or a million steps. Take for example in this case, the ‘peplum’. Our petite style queen, Lady Gaga, wears the exaggerated shoulders with a wide-fanned-out peplum detail top – not to mention she gets away with wearing no pants, like, all the time! (when would it be OK for me??) – while all us regular fashionistas would opt for something a little more subtle, pretty and wearable – Like the petite peplum skirt on Asos. Although I wouldn’t spend hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on a top that would…

    Oroton ‘Entourage Tote’

    Totally lusting over Oroton ‘Entourage Tote’ (in hot pink, of course!) which I saw in David Jones. In store the tote comes with a gorgeous black and cream satin scarf, however Oroton online it’s not included. For $AUD 295 I’d want the scarf too! This is the perfect sized tote for petites. It’s got that strong structured look, without being overly huge in size. The handle is a good length for hooking onto your arm or holding onto to. There’s plenty of space for all the essentials like… Purse, mirror, lipstick, Lucas Pawpaw, mints and your smartphone. I think this luxury Australian label has come a long way over the…

    Easy Petite Style, Rachel Bilson Inspired

    I’m not shy about the fact that I love the 5″2 Rachel Bilson, I think her style- the boho chic thing, is a lot of fun. I’m a little jealous I can’t pull off a lot of the stuff she wears. I wish I could wear a long maxi hippie skirt and make it look cool and effortless, but I can’t… I just feel extremely wide wearing it and I feel super short. Ohh well… Maybe I’m wearing the wrong skirts?! I’ll investigate this later… I did stumble upon a pic of Bilson leaving Sirius Radio Stations in NYC-  after her show with Regis & Kelly- wearing a simple white eyelet-holed…

Where? I’m not too sure to be honest. Just out and about and discovering things, like, yellow! Seems to be the first colour I look at lately. I never used to give yellow a go. It has a bit to do with my worries of it looking bad on my skin tone. But, with the right hue of yellow, it can look very darling indeed. I find if I am more tanned this time of year (Aussie summer!!…
