There’s been a few new “petite” lines popping up recently, and while none of them individually have yet inspired me to write a whole post, I figure they’re worth a mention.
Sexy Little Angel by Lupe Fuentes – Marketed as fashions for the “super petite”, this new line by the 4’9″, 80lb porn star (and frequent guest on the Howard Stern Show) comes in sizes “small”, “petite”, and “tiny”. Interesting sizing concept, but…hello tacky! Ugly, spandex pants does not a clothing line make! And can you really call something “petite” if it’s just nothing but spandex? Ick!
Candy Blue Shop - This online retailer of petite clothing features more clubby styles, which are not my cup of tea, but if you do decide to give them a try, beware of their “store credit only” return policy. I hate those!
The 16th Bar - This new designer has been Twittering the petite community recently, so some of you may have come across this site already. It seems to be only a blog at the moment, but a few garment photos can be found in the “Collections” category.
Emyloo Shoes – More petite shoe offerings for the small footed in sizes 2 – 5.5. Founded by Emily Krause, a 4’11″ petite with a size 4 shoe, this site has some promise. From the photos, I see a few styles that I can imagine playing quite nicely with the rest of my wardrobe, but I’d like to see a pair in person before getting too excited.
What do you think of these new petite businesses? Has anyone had an experience ordering from one of them yet?
