PFC #14: Holiday Emergency

This month’s Petite Fashion Challenge is hosted by Couture Coco.
The Challenge: You have a pre-booked dinner date on the first day of your holiday but your luggage is delayed. Therefore you must style your travel outfit into a special evening look using whatever you carry in your purse and anything else immediately at hand.
If you ladies remembered, this is what Mini-me and I wore to the airport in this post HERE. As a mother I always carry extra clothing for the family just in case. You never know what might happen when traveling with two young children.
So on that particular trip - these are the accessories that I had with me. I didn't realize it until now but this outfit really gives off a Gothic feel, not that that's a bad thing of course, but I didn't want to go overboard. Thankfully I had the pearl necklace to be used as a bracelet to bring it down a notch. I still can't get over how comfortable this dress is and love the way it drapes! 
One thing I didn't have with me was make-up. TSA always make a fuss when you have those liquids, eye lash curlers, foundations, etc. in your carry-on so I put mines in the checked bag. Not a big deal for me since I don't usually wear make-up anyways. 

Hope you enjoyed my 3rd PFC. Check out my last one HERE. Thank you Couture Coco for hosting! Be sure to check out the rest of the Petite Fashion Challenge participants listed over at Couture Coco.

  4. The belt, lace leggings, and change of shoes definitely transformed you into a nighttime look! I always keep my makeup (except for the banned ones) in my carry on just in case my luggage gets lost hehe.

  12. fussing with makeup with the TSA is never fun. I don't carry that much either when I travel! I love the gothic feel of this outfit. That belt is gorgeous.

  13. Great idea to carry extra. I push the boundaries with getting makeup in my plastic bag through security. Can't stand to get to the other side looking jet lagged! Normally just pack an extra sweater or cardigan in my bag.

  48. this is such a beautiful outfit you're wearing with your girl. simple, yet love stylish.

    for some reason, i thought you were on vacation... i guess you're back. going to the conference was kind of last-minute. it would have been nice to see you in boston....

    btw, i saw that you entered both of my last giveaways.... but didn't see that you "LIKE"d my facebook and the sponsor's facebook pages. were you having difficulties getting to the pages? please let me know if you did.

    hope you guys had a great time in florida. love seeing photos of the kids, especially. :)

  53. Yeah, I love what you did here with the pearl necklace & the lace tights. I usually only pack a couple small make-up items (mascara & toner) and I've never really had a problem with the TSA people. But you're right sometimes it's easier to just leave those things at home.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Awww you and the little girl look amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  55. You look great. The pearl necklace did balance the whole outfit out, it ended up looking amazing :)
