Petite Fashion Challenge # 3

Petite Fashion Challenge # 3 is finally here. I was so behind on this challenge. Thank goodness, I did manage to complete this challenge.  Let’s see how well I did…
 When looking for outfit inspiration, I usually turn to female celebrities . I adore so many style icons such as Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Anniston. The one that stands out the most is Kim Kardashian. There is no denying that she is a beautiful girl with gorgeous curves. She knows how to mix high-end and low-end pieces, dressy elements and casual items. Best of all, she loves her body. She embraces her curves and is comfortable in her own skin.

I am a sucker for reality TV shows. You bet I will be in front of the TV at 10:00 EST Sunday night watching “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. Although she is not petite but I adore her style and fashion sense. I chose Kim Kardashian’s signature look for Petite Fashion Challenge #3. Her go-to outfit consists of a black boyfriend blazer, skinny jeans, oversized bag and statement jewelry. She has been spotted many times wearing her signature look. It’s not hard for me to search for one of her inspired outfits. I found this photo from Google images and immediately in love with her outfit. It’s casual but yet chic and stylish.

Kim Kadashian attended Sony Ericson Open in Miami wearing distressed jeans with a boyfriend blazer and a gorgeous pair of Christian Louboutin lace up heels. She completed the look with a simple cross necklace. To recreate this look, I am wearing:

- Ruehl distressed jeans in 25: RUEHL No. 925 is an Abercrombie brand aimed at post-graduate individuals. Unfortunately, due to the economic condition, all stores are closed in January of this year. I love their jeans and was able to snagged a few pairs before their doors are closed forever. Buy similar here (available in 24) and here (in darker wash)
  - American Eagle boyfriend blazer in XS: I love this blazer. I can pair this blazer with almost anything. Size XS fits me perfectly. The boyfriend blazer is perfect to wear for this time of the year. Buy this blazer here or similar here (love this one)

 - Banana Republic pumps: I would love to have her Christian Louboutin pumps but in reality,  I can’t afford them. Here is a similar version and more afforable version

- Tiffany Somerset necklace: Love this necklace! It is my favorite piece of jewelry at all time. Buy it here
Here is my version of “The look for less” outfit inspired by Kim Kadashian. This whole outfit costs less than
 100.00. I know some ladies have struggled with this challenge including myself. Please show them your supports by visiting their blogs (listed below) and check out their fabulous outfits.

I’d like to thank each and every one of you for participating in this challenge. It’s such a fun way to interact with each other and promote our blogs within the petite community. If you are interested in hosting the next PFC, please confirm with ExtraPetite by Sunday, Oct 31st

I hate missing out on these challenges! :( maybe next time. good job on the look!

Ping said...

Sydney-- you look fantastic!! you pull off the bf jean quite well. i'm also loving your long girly and feminine!

This was a great challenge. Thanks for hosting it :D I thought I was late when I saved the post on Sunday..then I read everyone else's tweets saying they were still looking for someone to emulate! LOL

Kim Kardashian always looks amazing..especially with those curves!! Your version is really good! I love how it's all under a hundred bucks. :D Btw, thanks for your AE blazer suggestion a while back..but their XXS sold out and I wasn't sure if the XS would fit me well. Yours looks fantastic on you though.

Wow, your reader did a great job! I never even thought of Reese Witherspoon!

Oh, and according to the Petite Fashion Challenge Sign-up List, Petite Gorgeous will be the next host!

Elle said...

I love Kim's style and I think you did a great job replicating it! I really like your boyfriend blazer, I wanted to get the one that they offered this season but it was sold out in small sizes so quickly!

curls-and-pearls said...

AMAZING! You did so well, and Soo looks great too - I love Reese Witherspoon too! sorry I was late :(

Kileen said...

Kim Kardashian has an amazing fashion sense and I love your recreation of it! Those jeans look really nice -- if only those stores hadn't all closed down!

Thanks so much for hosting the challenge. This was super fun!


Stylepint said...

Thanks for hosting! You look great in your look for less. Kim's signature style reminds me a lot of Eva Longoria's style as well. Great minds must think alike! =)

Soo did a great job as well using Reese as an chic!

Leena said...

sorry, could you add my blog?

Alterations Needed said...

Oh no! I'm missing!
Alterations Needed PFC #3

You did a great job! Your frame pulls off a long blazer jacket really well!

Em said...

Thank you for hosting! You look great. Looks like blazers were popular this time :)

SewPetiteGal said...

You've definitely embodied the style and chicness of Kim K :) I love the heels with the outfit!

Thanks for hosting the challenge - it was a fun one!

Vicky said...

Hi Sidney. Great copy of Kim Kardashian's outfit! I really admire the work here. I see you have already linked me. Please take the link out. I was not successful in recreating an outfit that works. :( Time constraint and a stupid cold. Will check out everyone's work now. So exciting!

R.L. said...

Love the blazer and thanks for hosting! I'm having so much fun going through all these.

curls-and-pearls said...

Thanks for organizing by the way! We had a lot of participants this time!

Sydney's Fashion Diary said...

Ladies, I'll correct all the links shortly. Thank you all!

Nelah said...

Amazing recreation. That jacket looks almost like the same jacket Kim has on. This challenge is a really tough one for me.

C said...

I love Kim K. Even when she dresses down, she's never completely casual (love her choice of shoes!). The boyfriend blazer fits you so perfectly -- the length is perfect =)

PS - Soo looks great in her Reese recreation!

Kiki said...

Thank you for posting! I love your outfits! Well done! :) Kiki

Callandra said...

Your hair looks so great long, I love it! The outfit is fabulous too, I'm definitely going to have to get a boyfriend jacket now for sure!!

Another great turn out for PFC! Thanks for hosting! Great job on the outfit too, it's definitely very close to the original!

CynthiaC said...

Great rendition of Kim Kardashian's outfit. And she's petite too, I think :)

Sisters Sincere said...

Love Miss Kim's look and you did a great job of pulling it off; super cute blazer!

Another great set of looks! I can't believe I missed another one: I vote for everyone to post the annoucement on their own blogs the day it comes out. Let's build this up!

PetiteAsianGirl said...

Your hair is so long and beautiful! I like your classy rendition of this look and Soo looks great too! How fun that you two got to meet : )

Thank you again for hosting...linking to each blog is hard work!

Jessica said...

You did a great version of Kim K's look! You look gorgeous and I love the blazer with the distressed jeans. I'd never think to do it but it looks great together!

Anonymous said...

Love it! I love her style too, I have several of her outfits in my lookbook. Great job!

Cherie said...

i love how the blazer fits you so well.. the satin lapel is such a nice touch too!

Anonymous said...

I love your take on Kim Kardashian's outfit! I was particularly excited about this challenge to see what other petites came up with.

Erin said...

LOVE it love it love it!!! I wish I could have recreated this look too but my blazer collection is seriously lacking! I love those Kardashians!

Oh also! Kim is actually considered petite! She is only 5'2" or 5'3"!

Anonymous said...

Kim is 5'2'', and it's pretty obvious. She says she shares clothes with her sister Courtney who is 5'1''. How is she not petite?

Sydney's Fashion Diary said...

@ I am Khatu: No worries! There will be more fashion challenges in the future

@ Ping: Thanks, Ping. I love your long hair too

@ TLDP: I was so behind on this challenge too. I am glad you were able to pull it off

@Curls-and-Pearls: Thank you so much. No worries. You were only 10 minutes late 

@Kileen: I wish Ruehl hadn’t closed their stores. I love their stuff. Thanks for participating

@Stylepint: Thanks Jess. She does remind me of Eva. I love your outfit. I know Soo did such a great job on her outfit

@Leena: Sorry. I just linked your blog. Thanks for participating

@AlterationsNeeded: Kelly, I fixed your link too. Your outfit by far is my favorite from this challenge

@Em: Blazer is definitely popular for this challenge

Sydney's Fashion Diary said...

@Sew Petite Gal: You’re very welcome. It was really fun for me

@Vicky: I wish you had time to participate. I am sure you’ll do just fine if you did participate

@Callandra: I really like that blazer. I am sure it’ll look great on you

@PAG: Thanks Jean. It was fun to meet up with Soo. She did such a great job on her outfit

@Erin: I didn’t know Kim is 5’2. She always looks so tall in her photos. So I guess she is a petite too

@Anonymous: She is definitely a petite if she is 5’2. She wears high heels with everything so I guess I was mistaken that she is taller than 5’2

Curvy Petite said...

you look wicked cute in that blazer! It fits you VERY well!!

s said...

Love all those neutral colors, esp the light torn jeans w/the camel shoes! You rocked it well!

Me said...

Oh! I love the look you re-created! You look amazing! What a great weekend outfit!

I love Soo's outfit, as well. Her tights are so cute! I love all these blazer looks!

Thanks for putting in all the work to host PFC#3!

Gracie said...

Thanks for hosting such a fun challenge! I looked through most of the entries quickly and will take a second run through over the weekend.

I like how your shoes aren't as busy as Kim Kardashian's, which I feel cuts her legs off a bit and makes her proportions a little off. Your blazer looks amazing, makes me want to get one as well.

Soo's outfit is super adorable! I love the inspiration photo as well. I love the details on her tights!!

Olyvia said...

I love the blazer look on you and Soo! I feel like running out and buying that exact AE blazer you have on :) especially since the price seems more affordable than most blazers I've seen.

Petite Gorgeous said...

The AE blazer looks very good on you! I didn't know that cuffing jeans can still create a very stylish look.

I am Khatu said...

last minute entry. I didn't wanna miss out. :)

Amanda @ Life with A.Co said...

What a cool idea, next time I wanna join in!! (Even though I'm not petite... err.. is that okay?! :P)

I found you via Khatu.
