Barcelona Bound - MNG by MANGO Mission

Happy Thursday, readers! I hope trendy ladies across the country are gearing up to enjoy Fashion Night Out this evening. I'm stuck working in a rather desolate state with no hints of fashion, so I hope many of you will have fun for me. I just wanted to pop in today and share a little piece of exciting news with you guys.


Recently, I was invited to be part of the MNG by MANGO Mission, to help spread word about the Spanish clothing & accessories line sold at jcpenney. Even though this line does not offer petite sizing, I thought it would be a fun challenge to seek out possible petite-friendly items from a regular womens line. I'm thrilled to be joining nine other bloggers on this campaign:

Over the next two months, we will receive style challenges inspired by five European cities - Paris, Milan, Amsterdam, London, and Barcelona. I'll be compiling themed outfits for these challenges, and I invite readers and fellow bloggers to participate for fun. At the end of October, after the last style challenge, we will be visiting the MNG by MANGO studios in Barcelona. If you are interested in joining us, please check out the elle.com/MNG sweepstakes. One lucky winner will come along with us on the trip!

Thank you all so much for your readership (and friendship!) over the two years. It's only with your support that I am invited for such neat opportunities. Warm hugs to everyone, and stay tuned for the first European-inspired style challenge in two weeks!

Disclosure: This campaign is produced by Style Coalition and sponsored by jcpenney.

  38. Congratulations! Will there be an opportunity to ask questions about height issues in European branded clothing? In my ideal world, I'd only buy petite sized European (non British) brands!!

  41. Great news! Mango is a beautiful brand, I ordered a skirt this spring which was way too big. Quite a while back though my 4th grade teacher contacted me, asking me if I was still as tiny as she remembered me to be. She adopted a Korean daughter who loves fashion but threw away pieces that still looked perfectly fine, I received a few garbage bags full of hand me downs, of which I kept quite a few items. Among those items is a MNG cardigan I still wear a lot. :D
