Alterations Needed Forum-iversary & Petite Weekend Guide

Community:

One year ago today, the Alterations Needed Forum officially launched as a place to seek and share petite fashion advice. In that time, we’ve grown to over 460 members, launched a marketplace, and became the biggest petite community on the web! Our petite community even got recognized in a national fashion magazine. I am truly in awe of the mutual support and collective knowledge everyone has shared in the community.

Thank you for all your support, and taking the time to share your experiences and help other petite women dress fabulously. Keep up the good work ladies! It’s been a wonderful year…here is to a fantastic 2011! Stay tuned for more exciting announcements in the coming months…

If you haven’t already, register for the Alterations Needed Forum, and introduce yourself to the community!

and…

Help the Alterations Needed Forum grow! Tweet or Facebook share to other petite ladies.

Shop:

Ann Taylor – Free shipping on $150+.

J.Crew – 20% off all women’s tee’s and knits. Free shipping on $100 with code SHIP100.

LOFT – Extra 40% off sale styles, and free shipping on $125+. I ended up returning the silk tiered DVF jacket (alterations were going to be too invasive), but for a similar look, I’m considering picking up this tiered shell.

LA ladies – The Barney’s Warehouse Sale started yesterday, and runs through 2/21/11. Arrive early for the best merchandise, but hit up the sale in it’s last days for better bargains. NYC ladies, your BWS starts 1/17/11! More info.

    Holy moly…it's been one year already?

    You already know how I feel about you, AN, and AN forum! I would've never felt compelled to share my shopping experiences had I not enjoyed reading your own experiences so much. I love that the forum allows petite ladies everywhere to do the same!

    Congrats again Kelly! Great job on the forum and I'm sure it'll be a vibrant community for many more years to come! :)

    Don't forget code "FEBAFF30" for 30% off a full-price item, works at both Ann Taylor and LOFT I think. It's combinable with the LOFT free shipping and 40% off sales too since no code is needed for that.
