[PFC #19] Burgundy and Gothic Lace: Inspired by Fall 2012 Trends

I'm excited to be participating in this month's Petite Fashion Challenge (PFC #19), hosted this month by fellow petite blogger Angie from Pandaphilia.  The theme for this month's challenge is Trend Benders: "Pick your favourite Summer or Fall 2012 trend and make it work for you, whether it's going all-out, incorporating it into a professional outfit or using it in moderation."

For my outfit, I've chosen to incorporate two Fall 2012 trends that I'm particularly excited about: burgundy and gothic-inspired lace.     





Talula Blazer from Aritzia (also loving this one from the Topshop/Nordstrom collection)
xoxo Top (old)
H&M Pleated Skirt (other great picks here and here)
ProMod Wrap Watch from Germany (similar here and here)
Shoes by Connie
Unbranded Necklace from Taiwan
Chanel Purse

*****

To channel the rich burgundy pieces and gothic-inspired looks gracing the runways, I'm wearing a burgundy blazer, lace top, and a studded wrap watch I bought during a recent trip to Germany.  I've paired these trendy, edgier pieces with some of my favorite classics: a preppy pleated skirt, gray, buttoned peep toe pumps, and my favorite Chanel 2.55 bag.

Which Fall 2012 trends are you most excited about?

  2. Burgundy is one of my favourite colours, especially paired with black (as I said in my post, I'm still kind of hesitant to pair it with grey as they were my school colours). Love how you made the blazer work with the pleated mini.
