Hey ladies! This is officially the first post for Purely Petite and I am beyond excited to share my first look with you. The idea of creating my own blog has been in the back of my mind for a few years now and now its finally here! As I mentioned on the "About"
page on this site, I'm a student at the University of California Riverside and I'm a business major. My super busy school schedule definitely was a factor in the delay of creating Purely Petite but since I'm passionate about fashion and style I figured I should take some time to create my blog. Personally, I think that if you're really passionate about something, you should take time to do what you love because you only live once. I have wanted to create a blog for a few years now but I had mixed feelings about it but I decided to just do it.
The outfit I chose for this post is made up of an All Saints dress, Steve Madden boots, a Michael Kors purse and watch. The All Saints dress is one of my favorite pieces in my closet because I think the print is unique and it makes a statement. The silk dress can be dressed up or dressed down which makes it even more amazing. This dress is perfect for petite women because of its short length so it doesn't have to be altered. All Saints has a lot of unique pieces but I would stay away from the "One Size" tops because they tend to fit like a dress and can be overbearing when worn on a small figure. The Steve Madden boots are a little tall so they went way over my knees because of my height but I like how high they go. However, the boots aren't that comfortable but who doesn't make sacrifices for a cute outfit. Dr. Scholls inserts are essential in these boots so you can walk in them. I thought grey boots and the black patterned dress went well together because of their similar colors. I felt that the boots and the dress alone were a little boring so I added an embossed leather Michael Kors bag so the patterns would contrast. I was concerned that the different patterns would be too much but they worked perfectly together because of the purse being a neutral color. I love this purse because its not actually snakeskin but rather embossed leather and its neutral color makes it a perfect essential for your closet. The Michael Kors watch is one of my go-to accessories because its fun and sparkly but the rose gold is classic and matches with everything. The watch can be dressed up or dressed down which makes it functional for all occasions.
I hope you guys liked my first post! I'll post updates on my social media for the date of my next post!
