Petite Fashion Challenge #17: Candy Colorized

UPDATE:  PFC #17 post is up - click HERE!


I'm so excited to host this month's PFC!  Pre-blogging days, I was a neutral color addict.  My wardrobe consisted of black, gray, white and navy. With bright colors everywhere these days, there's no better time to incorporate some visual fun.  To make this challenging, how about we add an element of chance? :)



The Challenge: Candy Colorized
Take a bowl full of colorful candies (M&Ms, Jolly Ranchers, jelly beans, etc.), close your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces.  Now use those colors (+ a neutral of your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble.

**Extra brownie points if you post more than 1 colorful ensemble or if you add a DIY element (because I love DIYs so much!) :D**

To participate:
  • Simply leave a comment below indicating your interest as well as your blog URL.

  • Schedule your post for June 28th at 8:00PM EST and link back to this challenge.

  • Non-bloggers can participate too!  Email me at sewpetitegal[at]gmail[dot]com with your photos by June 27th and I'll post it on the day of the challenge. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone's pretty ensembles!

  2. Great challenge, and a toughie for color-phobes! I'll try to get my act together this time and actually participate since I slacked on the last few PFCs. Now...to carefully choose my candy to pick from...hmm...

  43. Candy?, check.
    Pictures?, check.

    Count me in on the challenge!

    PFC signup?, check.

    This is a good one. I was upset at you at first because I was afraid of the rainbow I'd turn into. Then I ate candy and it sweetened the challenge :) Thanks for hosting and coming up with such a good one!
