Petite Weekend Guide: 8/13/10

View from our “new” temporary apartment (I feel like such a nomad!). Del Mar Racetrack. If you look real close, I bet there’s some ponies down there!

Shop:

Ann Taylor:  30% off full-priced dresses.

Banana Republic:  25% off $100 for card holders with code BRFALL25, and free shipping on $50+ with code BRFREE50. I stopped in yesterday, and found this skirt to run small (see my pics in the forum here), but I’m waiting for it to go on sale (the material is kinda sweat-shirty, but I still think it’s cute enough to pick up…for the right price.)

Bloomingdales:  The sale in store is doing pretty good. Additional 50% off already reduced prices. The Bloomies in San Diego (Fashion Valley) is a smorgasbord of Theory size 00 pieces, like the Caprine jacket (post here) (dressing room pic) (on Extra Petite), and this Bindi TS seersucker jacket (dressing room pic). I also saw this seersucker baby in size 00 hanging on a sale rack. I was in 00 heaven!

LOFT:  Free shipping on $125+, and 30% off full-price dresses with code DRESS30. I’m kinda liking this dress in the gray.

    Oh no…why did you have to mention the sale at bloomies and all the size Theory sz 00's sill hanging around! I def. don't need more Theory blazers for now…but I am looking forward to what they will have for Fall/Winter (would love to pick up another classic suit like the Gratian jacket that you convinced so many of us to get!). Thank you for the link and I hope you have a good weekend!

    I still have yet to try on a single Theory jacket… shocking! I know! :P

    Did you find a lot of size 00's at the Century City Bloomies? I'm thinking about making a trip tomorrow.

    PetiteXXS – No way! How have you lasted this long without a little Theory in your life? I haven't been to the Century City Bloomies in a little while, so I don't know what's there. I was in San Diego when I found all the 00's.

    I love that Banana tweed skirt! I will be going to Banana during the week for lots of work clothes…once again! I will have to look for that skirt so that I can try it on.

    This might be old news, but I just saw that 6pm.com is featuring some Cole Haan deals this week (maybe even ending today). I don't have tiny feet, but I thought some of you might be interested since there are lots of size 5 still on there!

    After your post about the Theory jackets in 00 @ bloomies in FV, I had to go! I actually have never tried on Theory either! I never knew Theory jackets ran small til I started reading petite blogs not so long ago.

    Unfortunately, no luck. womp. all too big. story of my life! haha. I even saw your seersucker jacket. so big on me in the rib cage area. bummer. I guess I will just have to admire it on you and PAG in your blog posts.

    Aubrey – Wow…you must be about Jen's size from frmheadtotoe then huh? She's smaller than me and I don't think Theory 00 works for her either. She's had some luck with Lucca Couture kids. Check out her latest fashion post for ideas:
