Petite Weekend Guide: 8/27/10

Shop:

Ann Taylor: AT claims to have changed their pant fits. To get you hooked, they are offering $20 off a full-price pant purchase, and free shipping with the purchase of a pair of pants. But I’ve got a better deal for you…30% off one full-price item with code SEPT30. These look like fun. This jacket is also super cute, but I have the worst luck with AT jackets, so I’ll probably pass.

ASOS: Free shipping and returns for the US through 8/31/10. No code needed. Check out the Lipsy dresses I tried on in this post.

Banana Republic: The Give and Get promotion is back! 30% off your purchase, plus 5% goes to charity!  Use this coupon in store. My pick is this little tweed skirt.

Cinderella of Boston: The fall collection has arrived!

Endless: 20% off select brands specializing in hard to find shoe sizes & widths, orders of $100+. Free overnight shipping on new styles, free 2-day shipping for everything else. To see the qualifying styles, see here.

LOFT: Some new stuff is popping up! I’ve got my eye on this top…and guess what I found…tweed! Plus free shipping on $125+.

Rue La La: Paige Premium Denim sample sale this Saturday (8/28/10), starting at 11AM ET. Theory sample sale on Monday, (8/30/10), starting at 11AM ET. If you need an invite (commissioned), click here.

Urban Outfitters: I just got this knit jacket in the mail in size XS and love it! I also got this lace dress in size 0, and it was so small, I couldn’t zip it up (take note, super tiny petites!).

**Update** I was alerted to a Los Angeles sample sale for Siwy & Raven Denim by Erin over at The Life of Ann James. We think Siwy goes down to size 23, and Erin says the Hannah Crop is the perfect length for petites! Details here.

    Any thoughts on CoB's Fall line? I checked it out this morning. I'm not over the moon on any. There's just always something off about 'em.

    Aubrey – My favorite is the Scarlet b/c I love the tweedy texture. I could do without the Mary Jane strap though…I was never a fan of that style.

    Other than that, I saw the Roman in real life which is actually a very attractive shoe. The photos don't do it justice. The Karen is also really cute.

    so chic! Any clothing that fits well on the person always looks great, that's why i am offering sizes 0 – extra large & offer to cut the length according to the persons desired length on my online store. :)

    I tweeted about it but I thought I'd add it here too. LOFT is having buy one get one 50% off on all full-priced tops and sweaters, which is stackable with an additional 25% off with code AUGUSTAFF25 and free shipping on orders over $125… comes to about 44% off overall!

    I wanted to nab the ruffle front cardigan but they're out in XXSP in both colors grrr. I'm keeping an eye on that tweed skirt too! :)

    I purchased the UO lace dress in size 0 too. I admit it was VERY tight but I decided to deal since it was so darn cute! Hint: don't breathe and use a helper to zip…lol

    Kelly-you read my thoughts exactly regarding the Scarlet. I'm very attracted to the tweed mat'l but patent mary jane straps AND patent detailing?? The shoes would be so beautiful if it was just classic tweed platform pumps.

    Let me know if you end up trying on the Roman. I mentioned this before, but it fits awfully strange on my ankles. I'm thinking I might get the Karen in red.

    Talking about tweed, I wish the LOFT tweed skirt wasn't mini. BR tweed skirt is cute though.

    I'm off to camp out in San Luis Obispo. I hope SD weather will treat you nicely over the weekend. Tonight is cold!!!!

    I ordered this same jacket in Gingham too. I hope it's not too tight on me since you tweeted it fits you perfectly. Thanks for the heads up on sample sales. I'll be checking it out.

    PetiteXXS – Thanks for the info! What a great deal!

    Grits – LOL…even without breathing, I was going to rip right through that dress like the Incredible Hulk! Enjoy the dress! It's adorable!

    Aubrey – I'm really curious to try the mini tweed…maybe it won't be too mini on most petite girls, since the length of the pencil skirts usually hit me below knee off the rack. I also want to head back to CoB to check out the new Fall collection, so maybe I'll have more info for you later. Have fun in SLO!

    PetiteLittleGirl – I think it'll be fine for you because it's knit, so it's stretchy. Looking forward to seeing it in a future post!

    My ann taylor twill cropped skinny pants arrived and they are a keeper…but why why why are all the sizes gone online already? They are so bad with stocking sizes for their popular items…you'd think they would want the extra revenue.

    PS – I'm going to borrow your idea for the google search hehe. I've used it so many times on your blog already looking for elusive past posts on specific items : )

    PAG – Yay! You got a keeper! I hate when we find something good that fits, but by the time we get it in the mail, the small sizes are gone. Such a bummer to talk about something on the blog that isn't even available anymore.

    Oh good…the search is helpful! I wasn't sure if it was helpful, or an eyesore at the top of the page like that.

    Thanks for the rec on the UO jacket. Just snapped it up, it's on sale too! Will you be posting a review or pics? I browsed thru the LOFT bogo and nothing caught my eye. Did anyone find anything worthy? I hate missing out on such a great deal!
