Petite Fashion Challenge # 17: Candy Colorized

I missed the last few PFCs due to my morning sickness. This month, I am determined to join the fun =) This month's PFC hosted by the talented Sew Petite Gal who I had the privilege to meet in person. She asked us to "Take a bowl full of colorful candies (M&Ms, Jolly Ranchers, jelly beans, etc.), close your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces. Now use those colors (+ a neutral of your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble". How fun is that!

I am still trying to divert myself away from the neutrals and add more colors and prints to my wardrobe. I have way too many neutral colors in my closet and would love to own more colorful pieces. Being pregnant, my clothing options are getting more and more limited. In order to complete this challenge, I cheated a little – I chose my outfit before the candy colors =) Of course, there is no peach-colored M&Ms so I just had to use the red color instead. I chose a pair of nude pumps as my neutral element to complete my look.



PFC # 17

At the moment, I have a serious craving for peanut butter M&M's. I don't think I have a sweet tooth but these are so good and highly addicting. I can probably eat half a big bag of these M&Ms in one sitting. I would so blame the pregnancy hormones for it! Other than that, I haven't really had any crazy cravings so far.

I know this is not much of a challenge but I had so much fun putting this outfit together. There are so many participants this month. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. For more colorful outfits, please visit SewPetiteGal to see the rest of the entries.

  31. how do you care for a dress like that? i recently purchased a chiffon dress with pleats and dry cleaning it every time i wear it gets expensive. any thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Anonymous For something delicate like this dress, I usually hand wash and air dry (or you can use delicate or hand wash setting on the washing machine). Hope that helps!
