Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I will be continuing with the second post for Gambita, a petite online boutique. You can view the first post here. I decided to style my outfit around this skirt. When I saw this skirt on the website, it immediately caught my eye. When it arrived, it was even prettier in person. It is on the heavier side of the spectrum from all the beads and sequins on the skirt. I kept the top simple and continued with colors already in the skirt, blue and silver. This outfit would be great for date night or a girl's night out - that would be a night full of sparkles of course.
*This skirt was loaned to me by Gambita and will be sent back.
One thing that I love about Gambita aside from their slogan is how helpful and informative their product description are. Because this is a petite online boutique, they have fellow petites modeling the products and specifies whether the product is petite friendly or better for petites leaning on the taller side. In the size guide, you will also be able to find the exact measurements of the product. This skirt ran around two inches big on me at the waist, but the length was perfect hitting a little past mid thigh for me. The skirt measures 13 inches on the waist laid flat and 14.5 inches long.
Gambita is offering the readers of Petite Hues a 35% discount on their entire purchase plus free shipping & free returns using the code Gambita4PetiteHues at checkout.
Last week, I had the pleasure of mingling with other bloggers at a DIY necklace event hosted by Olivia from The Corporate Catwalk. If you follow me on Instagram, you might of seen a preview of it here. We made variations of this necklace from Glitter 'N Glue. Unfortunately we weren't able to find the stones in emerald so I stuck with the blue. I thought it would be the best way to get a head start at the Pantone Color for 2014 - Dazzling Blue. :)

I wish I was able to capture intricate hand sewn beads and sequins of this skirt. The details of this skirt is extraordinary.
Thank you so much for reading! :)
