So I have sort of dropped the ball on Melissa’s October Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge since I have been waking up too late in the morning to properly pick out a work-appropriate pink item to wear. Most of the pink things I own are too kid-like and therefore not formal enough for the series of meetings I have had in the last week.

I’ll be trying harder for the rest of the month, part of the problem with planning for outfits in advance is that I don’t really know what to expect in terms of the weather…it has been so fickle lately, ranging from high 80s on some days to windy 50s on others.

 Blazer: Ralph Lauren, size p2 (similar here and here)

Dress: BB Dakota in XS (looks similar to the Henrietta Pertuz that PAG modeled)

Pumps: Dolce Vita Madison in 7 (alternate)

Sweater: Polo Ralph Lauren (similar here)
Button Down: J. Crew

Skirt: BB Dakota in 0

Pumps: N.Y.L.A. in 7

And this is what I wore shopping the other day. I figured since I didn’t have a chance to wear pink during the week I’d at least work it into my weekends outfits. PAG had suggested wearing this skirt with a blazer so I tried it out.

Blazer: Theory Gabe B in 0 (alternate)
Skirt: Lipsy in 6 (reviewed here)

Pumps: Dolce Vita Madison in 7


And here are some sales that are going on.

20% off on Piperlime, use code STYLE20 (Expires on 10/24/2010, works on sale items)

PetiteXXS said that Piperlime orders with coupons can only be exchanged so it’s sort of final sale-esque!

And there are extra discounts on Macy’s sale items, shipping is 99-cents. Use code 99CENTS. Macy’s has a pretty solid selection of petite clothing even though they cater to the more straight sized petites and not to the very slim petites.

The Rampage dress that I wore in this post and this post are available for $39 in both purple and heather gray.

And I really want to try this DKNY coat in petite…the ruffles are SO pretty but I don’t think I need another coat. 

This Style&Co. Knit Moto jacket in petite sizes looks loose on the model so I have a feeling it runs big. Though one of the reviewers said that it runs small. So tempted to try even though the second reviewer said it doesn’t wash well. Still available in PXS. I also want to try this bandage pencil skirt since it looks short on the model…maybe it’ll be work length for me!
