My Hat, My Winter "Fashionator" - Petite Fashion Challenge #21

5:00 PM

I love watching events hosted by the UK royal family, especially the iconic fascinators wore by all the ladies. I remember seeing vendors selling them in DC's Eastern Market right after Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding last year. Then I started to dream about when I can finally participate an event where wearing a fascinator does not make me look overdressed.

Hence, I am here participating the "The Fashionator", Petite Fashion Challenge #21 hosted by KT Reed from KTRstyle (hmmm...despite my height, I do wear petite sizes once in a while...). My "fashionator" is a winter hat that is subtly decorated with three pieces of feather. For someone who has migraine headache, hats have been so important to me that they allow me to stay warm, and of course, stylish, for winters in the East Coast.

"who's the copycat?"
Petite Fashion Challenge #21 "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." Be sure to check out other participants' entries on KT's blog!

  5. Love the hat. Which clothes do you choose in petite? I'm glad you are buying them, too. The more petite clothes that are sold, hopefully the more brands will make a petite line for their customers.

    1. A lot of my tops or work blazers when I need them to be the right length. But definitely not pants/skirts lol.

  6. Very cute! Loving that hat!
