Kelly at Alterations Needed is hosting the second ever Petite Fashion Challenge and this time we are asked to pick an item (or a few items) from our closet and create two outfits (one Spring/Summer, the other Fall/Winter) from it.


I chose this F21 lace top and a white kid tutu skirt that I found at TJMaxx. This is the base outfit.

 For the summer/spring outfit I added on this Will Smith lace jacket (similar here and here)


For the fall/winter outfit I came up with two different ones. In outfit#1, I threw on a long hoodie that I have had for years and added some bright-colored Patrizia Pepe pumps. In outfit #2 I wore over the lace top an Aqua blazer(still available here) and Miu Miu suede boots.


I would have added tights but it was literally 90 degrees in my closet and I was sweating like a pig.


My original idea for this challenge involved my favorite J. Crew purple gingham button-down (I have had this for years and it’s held up incredibly well) and since I took the pictures I thought I’d post them here.



Fall/Winter Take I : Pippa blazer from Bloomingdales, BB Dakota skirt, Franco Sarto Napoli pumps


Fall/Winter Take II : Dollhouse faux leather jacket, Allison Izu Denim, and Charles by Charles David Pompadour pumps.


Spring/Summer : cardigan I got in Taiwan, BB Dakota skirt, Rebels sneaker heels (I want these Ash Thelma Wedge Sneakers too)


I can’t wait to see what everyone else has come up with! 🙂
