Hello there! I'm Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. I do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, home remodel projects, and cool DIY crafts you totally want to try. I'm super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we're a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!


  1. Danielle Smith :

    You look fantastic (And LOVE that you are vlogging!)

    • Allison :

      Thanks Danielle! I’m taking your tips of not having to feel perfect to put a video up.


  2. Sarah Beck :

    LOVE IT, I am actually wearing my very own jeggings today for the first time, and I think that I am in love! Thanks for all of your great tips!

    • Allison :

      Sarah, they’re pretty great, right? I thought I wouldn’t be able to pull them off since I’m curvy, but they fit really well.

      • Sarah Beck :

        I too am quite curvy, so ibwas skeptical, but I after a day of wearing them, and my daughter telling me that I have never had a better outfit (lol). I am sold! Mine are from old navy, they were under $20!

  3. Camille :

    Yes! I love that you’re vlogging! Having tried it out already, I can appreciate what goes into it. But YOU!…. you’re a natural in front of the camera. Great tips by the way!

    • Allison :

      It’s so much easier for me than regular blogging, I can totally see why people do it! Two minutes vs. two hours!

  4. Vera :

    Looking good!!

    • Allison :

      Thank you! Seriously, coming from the master, that means a lot.

  5. kelleyn :

    Allison, you are no longer curvy. Have you checked yourself out in the mirror lately. You are skinny minnie. Holy Cow ! It must be all the running. In any case you look fanastic. I just bought the cutest jeggings at The Loft yesterday. I love them! Now, I just need to find a top to go with them.

    • Allison :

      It’s an optical illusion. I’m curvy 101. It’s all about the stripes, the lines, the whatever will help.

      :) Thanks though, I’ll take it!

      Aren’t jeggings the best things invented?

  6. LizzieB :

    Okay Allison, can you be any cuter!!! Love that you found that tunic at such a great sale price. Next time will you pick one up for me too??? Keep up the vlogging – U look and sound Fab!

    • Allison :

      Done. Tell me a size and I’m on it! Ditto for all the amazing stuff you find in San Francisco. *jealous*

  7. Jennifer :

    One of my favorite things about buying clothes at Kmart is that I am almost guaranteed not to see anyone else wearing it around here. Where I live it seems to be a best kept secret. Everyone overlooks it.

    One more thing, I feel like I have to keep trying to explain the difference between leggings, jeggings and skinny jeans to my mom! She cant seem to keep them straight in her head :)

    • Allison :

      It’s not the best kept secret around here but, BUT, I do find really cute things once in a while. It takes more digging, but I love walking away with a new shirt for that price!

      Jeggings will remain a mystery to my mother until the day she dies, it’s just one of those things. :)

  8. Trainer Momma :

    I love the quick videos! I need all the fashion direction I can get — so I turn to you, the Fashion Guru! Keep the videos coming…

    • Allison :

      Ha. Well, you give me training advice, and I’ll trade you for fashion tips, how’s that?

  9. Hypnogal :

    Sorry, just can’t go for the barber pole look.

    • Allison :

      It’s surprisingly flattering Hypnogal, but if stripes aren’t your thing, try a different pattern, it’s the tunic that you’re after.
