    Love coming here every Friday to see what’s on sale! Nothing for me today but I am heading out to Old Navy to check on that black and white sweater you had on several posts back. Wish me luck! Have a great weekend.

    Perfect For Petites

    Thanks for the heads up on all the discounts!  I didn’t plan on shopping this weekend, but now I’m so tempted (I’m already browsing the Loft website).

    Love your  blog. I am 5’1″ and do not blog but I have learned so much by following you and other petite fashionistas, especially the petite fashion challenges.  I have a suggestion: Outerwear can be particularly challenging for petites.  Why not a PFC called OUTERWEAR CHIC.. This would be helpful with the cold winter months approaching…The look could be dressy or casual and must include an outerwear garment appropriate for being outdoors in inclement  weather.

      Great suggestion Janice! I’ll put it in the PFC thread in the AN Forum.
