Petite Fashion Challenge #22

I am happy to host this month’s Petite Fashion Challenge. I appreciate all of the participants who joined this challenge during such a busy month!
Cute cold weather shopping clothes! 

This month’s challenge

“The weather outside is frightful, but indoor shopping is warm and delightful. So, whether you have wind, rain, or snow, show me your clothes when shopping for friends or foes!

…And yes, extra cool points will be granted for pictures taken while shopping!”

Here’s a quick glimpse of my outfit

First, here’s an entry from Nicole (you can find her on twitter @nicology):

I’ve been reading others’ PFC posts for several months and was drawn to participating in this challenge because I recently had this predicament when choosing an outfit to wear while holiday shopping.
Here was my solution.
Petite Fashion Challenge Participant Entry

Theory blazer. Urban Outfitters lace top. Kirkland Signature cami. Kate Spade skinny jeans.
Nordstrom headband. Prada glasses. Pearls gifted from grandmother. Kate Spade iPhone case.
Chanel classic flap m/l. Valentino flats.

A puffy jacket is a burden to carry when shopping.  Instead, I wore a blazer I could easily put on/take off (perfect when trying on items) and roll up the sleeves if I got warm.  The fabric is lightweight enough to stow it away in a shopping bag if I needed to.

To compliment the non-waterproof blazer and combat Seattle’s cold, rainy weather, an umbrella and gloves are essential.  The ones I used are tucked away in one of my shopping bags.  (Nordstrom does a great job of providing umbrella bags to customers so one can tuck their bagged umbrella away without worrying about getting their other items wet.)
At the time, Seattle was having a windy winter storm.  I accessorized my outfit with a bejeweled headband that looks chic while easily keeping my windblown hair in place.

A cross body bag and a comfortable pair of flats are two of my shopping must-haves.  The handsfree aspect makes it easier to scour the racks and carry my purchases. And the flats keep my feet warm, make it easy to try on shoes and quickly navigate through the crowds of shoppers.

I went with a cape not because I am a super shopper, although of course I am that, but because it allows me the versatility of venting by unzipping or shutting the cold out by zipping up the arm flaps.

I collect silk scarves and gloves so I love accessorizing with them in the winter.

In case I’m still too hot with the cape fully on I become a ‘winged’ fashion cape crusader
by letting the cape drop off of my shoulders like an open parachute. 😉
