PFC #21: Fascinators -- Fancy Peacock

I am very excited to announce that this post is brought to you by a Petite Fashion Challenge that I signed up for a few weeks ago. These PFC's (Petite Fashion Challenges) are hosted by a different style blogger each month. The style blogger comes up with a theme, you sign up if you're interested, and simply follow posting instructions on the host's page. You don't have to be a blogger and you don't have to be petite to join these challenges. For more information visit Alterations Needed Forum to see who will be hosting the next challenge.

This month's challenge was hosted by the beautiful and stylish Mrs. KT Reed. Make sure to check out her lovely blog, KTR Style


The Challenge: "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 “fascinator” 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!"

My inspiration for this challenge was one of my favorite birds, the peacock. I designed and created an oval shaped hat made of black velvet with gold rope trim. I added peacock feathers on the side of the hat to give it the fascinator style. 

The outfit I styled is perfect for a holiday party (Christmas or New Years). My goal was to create an elegant and sexy holiday outfit. To give this outfit a look of luxury, I used a royal blue satin top and paired it with a black velvet mini skirt that has tiny glittery speckles. I added a black belt with a sequined design in the center, which reminds me of the design on a peacock's tail. Sky high gold stilettos complete this outfit and make it extra sexy. Check out the images below and see what I came up with.

    1. Thank you Eliz! I really appreciate your comment. You know, I was kind of worried that the belt was going to steal the show, but I think that both the belt and fascinator hat are equally important in this outfit. I think the sequins in the belt are reminiscent of the peacock feathers, which helps create a balance between the two. : )

  6. You have a creative and exquisite taste to match, blue blouse with skirt is beautiful. Complements are cute, and for my taste the tone stockings gives a role to the beautiful shoes. The hat with feather adds a very personal and original. The clutch looked closely observed how beautiful it is.
    The makeup perfect!

    Many kisses,
