Petite Fashion Challenge #12: From Night to Day

Hosted by Khatu @ i am Khatu, Petite Fashion Challenge #12: From Night to Day has us restyling a glamorous look that you would typically wear for a night-out-on-the-town into daytime casual wear. Easy right? Bonus points if you can restyle it for work!

Coming up with three outfits for this challenge was hard. When I think glamour, I picture something fancy, sparkly, black, or a mix. I nixed out styling around my most versatile dress because I've already done that in a previous challenge. I also ruled out a skirt because it would probably be too short for most office environments. That leaves me with some sort of top as the common piece between all three outfits. After rummaging through my closet, a white sequin top it is*.

Night-out-on-the-town look: I chose a classic color combination of white against black. A little bling and (faux) leather adds some fun to a night look.
necklace: Ann Taylor winter sparkle (similar)
blazer: H&M boyfriend (similar)
top: Ann Taylor sequin front (similar; similar)
ring: Forever 21 pearlescent cluster (similar)
skirt: Forever 21 leatherette (similar)
tights: Forever 21 sheer (similar)
bag: Chanel M/L flap (similar)
shoes: Ann Taylor perfect patent (sold here)

Daytime casual look: Continuing with the white against black bottoms theme, I dressed down this outfit with a casual tee and fur vest.
vest: Zara Girl fur waistcoat (sold here; similar)
necklace: Forever 21 leaf accent (similar)
tee: Gap v-neck (similar)
belt: Express wide (similar)

Work-appropriate look: And lastly, I swapped out dark bottoms for a dark jacket up top.
pants: Express Editor luxury stretch (this season's version sold here)

*I've been known to interpret past challenges in my own way, so hopefully I read this one correctly.

  5. Oops, I think I did this challenge wrong - I only did 2 looks *whacks head.*

    Great transformations - they are all very distinct from one another! Sequins are definitely a good way to go :)

  23. I love how you went with a theme (I feel like I cheated a bit by going with a piece rather than a "look"). Your looks are all totally cute and wearable.

  26. @Anonymous - Yes I did! I folded about 5-6 inches under for a cropped look. The pants are too long on me normally, so I always fold a bit under, but just more so this time around.

    @SewPetiteGal - The 3rd outfit was a bonus ;)

    @Elle - I SURE DID. Food in the States is just not the same :(

    @tinymum, @Anonymous (Shy) - I'm wearing a size L in the Zara vest. Jessy also tried on the same vest in sizes L and M, so if you're smaller than me, M might work better. Hope that helps!

    @my mini bag - Thanks :) Doesn't the gray pants look funny when I'm standing straight? Too much fabric on the bottom I think. Alas, it's so comfortable and fits well so it'll stay in my rotation.

  29. Ha! Whether you interpreted it your own way or not, I really love how the looks turned out. I am kind of (completely) in love with that fur vest. And I am very, very sad that I just don't think I could make it work for me. I will love it vicariously through you, I think :)
