Brand that Runs Small: Armani Exchange

…d to find in store in size p0. Armani Exchange Splatter Print Dress, $120, armaniexchange.com Armani Exchange Splatter Print Dress in size p0 (ignore the liner socks…those dressing room floors are icky!) Overall, I was very impressed with the fit of this dress. I was almost worried I wouldn’t be able to zip it up all the way!

Review: Armani Exchange Shorts in Size P0

…horts a try. So let’s start with my favorite, the striped short, shall we? Armani Exchange Striped Short (now on sale) On me in it’s natural state. Pay close attention to the…um…extra fabric in the crotch…. These sat a bit low on my hips, which means the crotch is way too low, hence the major sagging and bagging. These shorts are pleated, so I expect some volume in that region, but the poof is too much for my liking. Also, because the crotch is so…

Mid-Week Sale Bonanza

…ve ordered this pair (I love the stripes!), and this pair, in size p0 from Armani Exchange, which will be coming soon so I can review. I also tried a few H&M pairs which were pretty awful, (but PAG has found luck) except for a ridiculously short pair that I ended up buying as beachwear.

Secret Santa Reveal

A few ladies and myself had a mini Secret Santa exchange this holiday season, with the bloggers among us posting a reveal of our SS gifts today. Here is my very thoughtful gift, from my lovely Secret Santa, Elaine! I couldn’t be happier with the delicious teas she picked out. They’ve been my favorite treat on chilly days. And how did she know I was in dire need of a teaball? This one comes complete with an adorable teacup charm. =) The best part…

Online Shoe Repair – Cobbler Concierge Review

…red for Louboutins) and sole color (black or natural), a prepaid shipping label, and two pieces of tape to secure the package shut when you’re ready to ship them off. I made notes on the form about repairing the toes, and choose a natural colored rubber sole, since I do so much walking in these, and rubber gives better protection. I packaged the shoes in the supplied tissue, taped up the box, and slapped on the prepaid shipping label. I dropped t…

Brand that Sometimes Runs Small: Banana Republic Petites

…in P00 that have worked me, and each one has had the word “stretch” on the label. Go figure, since the stretchy fabric garments are cut smaller right? Look for things that say “stretch”, and there’s a chance it’ll fit. Pants: Just like with the jackets, the P00 pants that have the word “stretch” somewhere on the label have worked for me in the past. However, I still have needed the waist taken in just a bit, but this is an easy alteration, and not…
