Announcing Petite Fashion Challenge #21: The Fashionators

In the wake of President Obama being re-elected, I should be doing a challenge on ways to wear red, white and blue but all I can think of are big fancy fascinators.

My love affair with fascinators started a few years back when I was planning for my wedding. There was something about these pretty feathery, floral, netted headpieces that made me feel so utterly feminine and elegant. When the wedding was over, I found myself even more drawn to these pretty hair accessories and wish I could wear them more often…Not only can they disguise a bad hair day, they also make a bold statement for any outfit. And fashion is all about making a statement!

This month’s challenge is to create an outfit for an occasion (of your choice: attending a wedding, in a wedding, a holiday party, Kentucky Derby, etc.) and utilize a headpiece as the focal point to make a “fashionator” statement. This headpiece can be a fascinator, a fancy headband, a delicate flower or a big hat. Feel free to get as creative as you like!
