Dress Pants for Tiny Petites: Ann Taylor

…fit was so bad that my tailor deemed them unalterable. So, I finally gave Ann Taylor a try. Ann Taylor recently changed the names of their pant fit offerings, so I went for the “Modern” fit, which is supposed to be the equivalent to their “Lindsay” fit. The “Modern” has a lower rise and slimmer fit. I really loved the look of these charcoal gray striped dress pants, and ordered them in size petite 00. Petite Modern Wool/Cotton Striped Trousers, $…

In Memoriam: Saks Fifth Avenue Petite Department

…e SHOP40 through today 4/28.** I’m still waiting on one more item from the Ann Taylor and LOFT Friends & Family sale, but the rest have arrived, so here we go! I’m really loving the colors this spring, and LOFT hasn’t been disappointing.

Review: Some More Ann Taylor Petites

…your reviewing enjoyment… First up, the Pearl and Bead Tank in size XXSP: Ann Taylor Petite Pearl and Bead Tank This top is really cute, and if not for the following problem, I would have kept it: Jeans: Paige Blue Heights 14″ Skinny in Winter Solstice, size 23 (hemmed) (similar) You can see the flappy things in the first photo too. I’m not sure if it’s because the armholes are too low, or because the beading is so heavy that it weights the front…

Petite Outfit – My Bosom is Abloom for Peplum Gingham

…olor has lent itself to interesting pairings, like the pale purple of this Ann Taylor floral shell from last year. I wore this for a day trip to LA, and got loads of compliments on it. It’s such an easy, but interesting piece to just throw on. I also figured out the top worn underneath it looks way better tucked in. Lesson learned. The Ann Taylor petite floral front shell has also proven to be a great wardrobe addition. After joking with a friend…

Q&A: Petite Stylist – Trina Gupta

…r petite clients? There are the obvious common ones, like Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, and Ann Taylor LOFT.

The dress I’m wearing right now is actually French Connection and where normally I wear a 0, this is a 2 and fits me perfectly.
