To each individual, fashion can have very different definitions. To one person, fashion could mean the trendiest clothes and the most expensive brands. To another person, fashion could mean creating an attire with vintage pieces. What does fashion mean to me? To me, fashion is a medium that I use to inspire petite women around the world to dress and feel amazing about their body.
I started Petite Perspectives as a little venture after I couldn’t enter the modeling world because of my height. I didn’t let rejections from modeling agencies get me down, instead I searched and found an avenue where I could do what I loved. One year later, my fashion blog has helped me meet amazing women from all around the world who share the same passion for fashion as me. My blog has helped a multitude of petite women out there feel inspired through fashion.
A lot of thought goes into the outfits that I feature on my blog. I try and put together looks that are high fashion, yet comfortable. I have always been a fashionista, as a young girl I created outfits from hand-me-downs given to me by my mum and cousins. I still wear a lot of my mum’s vintage pieces.
With autumn just around the corner for New Zealand, I decided to put together this particular look.
Distressed jeans are a staple in my Autumn wardrobe and will most probably make its way into my winter wardrobe as well. It gives your outfit an “edgy” look. Pair it up with some ankle boots and a knitted jumper and you are ready for a perfect coffee date with your girlfriends! The same jeans can even make a fine debut into your evening attire; just switch the boots up with a pair of heels, and the knitted jumper with a blouse and you are ready for a night out in no time.
Details, shape and length are three important things to consider for a dress. Dresses easily become bags for girls with a petite frame. I love details; I’ll wear anything with intricate or unique details in a heart beat. I love my outfits to have a bit of difference to the next persons.
With a heavily detailed dress, it’s always better to go for plain, nude shoes as I have done with this Sherri Hill dress. The whole look works like a package; this starts from your hair and ends with your accessories. Everything needs to be able to compliment each other. It is handy to own a nude clutch and nude shoes, which can easily be paired together with a detailed piece.
My channel aims to provide new, innovative but also a comfortable approach to fashion. My main focus is on fashion for petite women but my blog also features day-to-day looks that can inspire any wardrobe. Follow my blog on Instagram to see all the daily posts of the looks that I pair up. My goal for this blog is to keep inspiring women out there to feel sexy and beautiful in their bodies and always make life your own little catwalk! One day I am hoping to inspire more petite fashion shows and more petite women on catwalks.
By the end of this year, I am hoping to launch a Petite Women’s convention where women can get together and talk about fashion, lifestyle and beauty. From doing this, I am aiming to bring together like-minded women where we can all work together to boost women’s morale through fashion.
