Petite Fashion Challenge #6

Eep I’m so late! Sorry, folks. I went online after class today and realized that my post didn’t go up last night!
*head smack*
Newbie blogger, right over here!

Petite Fashion Challenge #6:

This month, the challenge is hosted by fabulous Jess of Stylepint.

Dress Up Your Basics: . For this challenge, start off with a jeans and tee basic look (it can be any style or color) and dress it up to show off your personal style with accessories, jewelry, and whatever you’d like to add.

My first petite fashion challenge! I’m all a-tingle!
I wear jeans most days, but I try to pair them with a top a bit dressier than just a t-shirt (unless I’m going to throw a sweatshirt over it… you know those days!)

This is my starting point:

The T-shirt is one of the many super cheap T-shirts from Charlotte Russe that hang out in the bottom of my drawer. (I think they were around 2.50 each!) I have several scoop necks and v necks that I wear for working out or sleeping. As with most super cheap things, the fit is not the greatest! It’s too big in the shoulders, tight around the bust and has no waist definition.

The jeans are one of the four pairs that I cycle though. 28″ inseam, straight leg, dark wash. Very basic as well.

So here’s what I ultimately went with:

T-shirt: Charlotte Russe XS
Cardigan: Forever 21 S
Belt: Forever 21
Jeans: Delia’s straight leg 00P
Bangles: unknown
Necklace: unknown
Black Heels: H&M

Close up:

Omg, I have a waist in there! This is why belts are awesome!

I like forever 21 belts because they’re super cheap and come in a wide range of styles. This is my first time wearing a thick belt and I really like it. Doing the cardigan in an X shape shows off my curves (boobs! I has them!) and allows the vibrant blue of the T-shirt to show.

Normally Forever 21 has really strange and cheap looking clothes, but every so often there’s something in that massive clothing jungle that looks really nice! This sweater is that something. The ruffle embellishment along the placket is fun and kind of classy, and the scoop neck is super flattering. Like most F21 cotton items, shrinks easily in the dryer (which is why I would be careful about buying dresses from there!)

To recap: Boring T-shirt + embellished cardigan + waist defining belt = outfit.

So excited to see the outfits of other petites! (I’m predicting…blazers!)

The Intro Post

I am 21 years old and 4’10″ with my very own furry sidekick, a tolerating fluffy cat that unfortunately does not talk back.
Follow my adventures and exploits through the beginnings of adult life, from a very uncommon adult stature.

FASHION

This blog will probably be 75% clothes. I have a very difficult time find clothes that fit me. Most shirts and pants and dresses were not made with a 4’10″ woman in mind; they were designed for a 5’7″ woman…maybe even a 5’4″ woman.

I’m still 6 inches away from the “average” woman and no, I’m going to grow anymore!

The stats:
4’10″, 85-90lbs, 32-24-32

So like all good superheroes, I need a wardrobe that is a bit stylish and very practical.

A workable crime fighting costume is a necessity. (Regular folks might call it “a wardrobe”) Style is important. You can wear gold and blue color scheme, cut outs and flashy jewelery, giant goggles! Each costume shouts something about its wearer, whether it’s Batman’s “FEAR ME! I AM LIKE THE NIGHT!” or Superman’s “LOOK AT ME, HERE TO RESCUE YOU!”.

While style can sometimes be lacking, (disco Nightwing, anyone?),  practicality is must. Wonder Woman couldn’t move in a mini dress, a sexy cat suit  that’s too large becomes ridiculous leather pajamas, and boots that don’t fit are a safety hazard.  And can you imagine chafing at super speed? Ack!

The one rule of the superhero dress code that Superhero Chic will never break is: NO CAPES!

Follow my (by no means thrilling) adventures in shopping and sewing on the quest for a perfectly sized wardrobe.

FOOD

I love food. Lets’ face it, Everyone should love food. I’ve never met anyone that has said “eh, nurtients….I’m not really a fan of eating or drinking, but I guess it’s alright.” If you find this person, drop me a line; because I’m borrowing them for the week and we are going to BORROW A TIME MACHINE until they find a dish that makes their   sing.

That said (Food. It’s awesome.) I have a confession to make.

I bake.
I bate a lot.
I probably eat about 80% cookies, 20% other stuff. My food pyramid IS a chocolate chip cookie, with the dough being COOKIES and the little chips being OTHER FOOD. (I actually prefer chocolate chunks, but that wouldn’t work for this metaphor) .

Cookies are my Kryptonite, if Kryptonite made Superman pudgy, happy, and prone to making “Mmmmm” sounds whenever he encountered it, instead of making him nauseous, powerless, and prone to getting kicked by Lex Luthor (who couldn’t really kick him otherwise and revels in the rare chance)

So I’ve decided that it is time. There are so many things outside the awesomeness that is creamed butter and sugar, and  I  shall discover them! (although there will still be cookies. There can never NOT be cookies)

ADVENTURE

Like most people (okay I don’t know that for certain but it makes me feel better), I live a somewhat routine life. And routine gets dull. Sometimes you want to do something adventure-worthy, like FIGHT CRIME or FEND OFF AN ALIEN INVASION!

I’ve always wanted to travel and see the world. There’s nothing like the thrill of experiencing something new (and yes, I find it a bit scary too). It helps to take small steps at first and build up to the huge leap. Bruce Wayne didn’t pull on his tights and shout I AM VENGEANCE! at insane clowns until he had roughed up a few cowardly and superstitious criminals first.

Right now, my adventure cry is something like TO THE ZOO! and that’s perfectly alright.

First post!

This post will be a place holder while I try and sort out the layout of this blog.

I realize that most blogs have a focus, food, fashion, travel, certain types of eating. Narrowing down things is hard, so for the first few weeks this blog will have several themes. Over time I may drop one of the them, or several of them, but for now let’s see how it goes.

Shortie Fashion Fiascos!
Food!
Adventure!
and of course, Comics!
