Petite Fashion Challenge #14: Holiday Travel Emergency
I’m excited to participate in yet another fun fashion challenge! This month Petite Fashion Challenge #14 (PFC) is hosted by Couture Coco. Check out her blog to see the list of other participants.
The Scenario: I have “formal” dinner plans the same evening I arrived into town. Upon arrival, I was told that my luggage will be delayed until the next day. All the running around left me no time to stop by any stores to pick up a dress.
The Challenge: I need to style my travel outfit into a special evening look using whatever I carried in my purse and anything else immediately at hand! Yikes!!
Thanks a lot AA!
On my last trip, I wore this really old but super comfy Marciano teal maxi dress with flats (we went to the airport last night to recreate this look lol)… My travel outfits are typically combined with a hat, small carry-on, my handbag, a scarf, jacket, a good read and my beloved pet pillow Kathanael.
Lucky for me, I always carry on my makeup, hair brush, a pair of heels and my jewelries.
In case of emergency situations like these, all I have to do is brush my hair, apply makeup, add accessories and get a little creative with what I had on hand… This challenge definitely prove that making something work at the last minute is totally doable if you are just a little prepared.
Dress: Marciano tube maxi (old) (similar here) Denim Jacket: Bebe Sandals: Dolce Vita Archer Flats / Heels: Christian Louboutin Very Noeud Purse: Louis Vuitton Trevi PM Scarf: H&M Hat: Juicy Couture Fedora
Thank you Couture Coco for such a fun challenge!

[…] as this was a true styling challenge requiring resourcefulness and/or creativity (I loved reading ktrstyle‘s entry). The scenario may not be realistic for everyone (I never check luggage when flying), […]

Great job! I love this challenge idea! Definitely have to join for next time.
Great job on the challenge!! I absolutely adore how you transformed that dress from casual chic to elegant night time look. I like the first pic that you re-created, too. It looks like you’re so pissed off that they misplaced your luggage. Lol. :)
Haha, I would be P.O’d if my luggage was lost!
I love that you went to the airport to do this! Extra points for you! Love the transformation! Love what you did with your scarf!
KT you really went above and beyond for this challenge. I love that you took your photos at an airport. You did such an amazing job. I love that you took an casual outfit and transform it into very glam outfit.
OMG LOL I can’t believe you guys went back to the airport to re-create, that is awesome! Talk about taking the challege seriously :P You did a fantastic job, you look so glam!
Thank you Elaine!
I love how you transformed the look! Great job on the challenge …

Great job on the ’emergency’ transition! I love the scarf as a wrap and the addition of the brooch to dress it up!
Absolutely LOVE both the before the after, KTR! Easily my favorite entry of this PFC. The scarf twisted into a wrap and then topped with a brooch? So glam!
ps. the sandals you commented on doesnt hurt at all :)
woah ! you did really well with the “challenge”.. maybe I should start wearing maxidresses on flights just in case if I need to transform an outfit when my luggage is lost lol.. and bright lipstick always does the trick doesnt it ? ;)
Wow, what dedication! Love the photos and your expression at the carousel lol! Fantastic results and how cleverly you styled the shawl – YOu have my dream hair which is so glamorous all by itself!

OMG, only you can make it look fab! I love it! Very clever!
Thanks Lemi-pooh! :)
Wait, you recreated the whole scene at the airport? How did you get in?? Anyway, love the look (and the “lost luggage” pout)…it’s amazing how one can come up with a very sophisticated outfit with whatever they have!
Thank you! We did the whole thing at the airport (except for the mirror pic) and were getting strange stares!
Too freaking cute! Who can dress up a cotton maxi into something glam, it is you! :) Hahaha and I love that Breaking Dawn book! It’s my to-go to book whenever I travel and I’ve read that book 10 times!
Haha, love then sad “airline lost my luggage” face.
What a fun challenge!! You did an amazing job turning your outfit into something really dressy! And you actually went to the airport to do it, you’re so darn awesome!
P.S. I love that pet pillow, it’s the cutuest thing ever!
I love that you went to the airport to take these photos! You really went above and beyond! Great use of the scarf to dress up your maxi. You really did a fabulous job on this one. =)
