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!
Leave a comment with your blog URL indicating you are going to participate. If you are a non-blogger and would like to participate, you can email me your entry at email@example.com a few days prior to the deadline.
*Although the name of this challenge is “Petite Fashion Challenge,” I’d love for you to participate no matter what size you are! :)
Please schedule your post for Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 5:00PM (PT) / 8:00PM (ET) and link your post back to www.KTRstyle.com so everyone can see the complete list of entries.
Good luck and I can’t wait to see everyone’s outfits!

This is a fun challenge! Please add my name to the list.

Oh no… My heart sank a little when I saw this month’s PFC. I was so looking forward to joining another PFC as I took a little hiatus from blogging. My excitement turned a little bit into stress as this will really be a challenge (hence the name PFC!) But I will take this on as I’ve never really worn and own a fascinator headpiece. Sign me up please :)
Aw I’m sorry my challenge caused a bit of stress for you. The head piece can be anything like a small piece of jewel or a flower, etc. If you feel like getting extra creative, great but please don’t stress over it! :)
Oh that’s cool! I was thinking it was an elaborate headpiece :p Now that definitely makes this easier for me. Thanks a bunch :)
ooops I forgot to add my website
Wow great idea! Can’t wait!
What a creative challenge! I am in!
This would be interesting! Ok, maybe I’ll think of something and try my luck too =D
I’m far from ‘petite’ but I’m in! Btw I just learnt what a ‘fascinator’ is, thank you. I’m sure it will be fun, I have no desire to win, it’s just a personal challenge for me to see if I can make the 5 o’clock deadline. Hahaha
I love your blogging skills!
