After much deliberation, my pickiness about fit won over. Anyone see something funky about the below pics?

If you guessed that the back fits all wrong, then you're right (but I'm sure no one guessed nor cared...I'm just a fit fanatic lol). Blazers (even cheap $30 ones) should have either contoured seams along the back AND/OR a back vent down the middle. The back on this jacket is completely flat, and no one's back is flat! Hence it is all bunchy at the back waist - sadly a no-go for me. Curls & Pearls got this jacket too so check it out on her.
Too bad about the fit ... the inside is real pretty!
On another note, thank you all so much for your feedback on my last idea. With your encouragement I'm going to start the challenges, but I'd love it if fellow bloggers volunteered to host future ones. I'm kicking off the Petite Fashion Challenges with...
PFC # 1 - "Do a Petite Don't"The Challenge:
Create an outfit for weekend brunch with your girlfriends. The outfit must include one garment that is typically notorious for being a petite "don't." Such garments include: dresses, skirts, or pants that hit at the scary mid-calf length (not cute, cuffed jeans...I'm talking real capris) or below the knee, maxi dresses, full A-lined skirts, or wide-legged pants.
If this is too much of a challenge for you, you can take the easy route too with stuff like horizontal stripes, huge prints, or a gigantic belt, or oversized items. But I'd really love to see you guys push yourselves out of the box. I know I'll be challenged! I have no idea about what to post!
My thought process for this one is that I've never liked the rigid "do or don't" fashion rules that you see in magazines and such. I think that many of the above items MAY work on petites if done carefully (or they just may not work period, we'll have to see!), and I'm looking forward to seeing how you guys incorporate them into your outfits.
How to participate:
1. Leave me a comment here letting me know if you're going to participate.
2. Schedule your post in 2 weeks for the evening of Thurs, August 26th. I'll post mine Thursday at midnight eastern time and link to all your blogs.
