Free Worldwide Shipping at Duo Boots

…only applies to the shipping when ordering, and does not include return or exchange shipping. If you’re not familiar with Duo Boots, they make calf-fit boots in narrow and wide calf sizes. I bought a pair a few years ago in size 30cm calf, and they hug my wimpy 11 inch calves with skinny jeans. They are the only non-super-stretch boots that have ever fit like this! Read my full review of Duo Boots. My advice…the pair I got was baggy in the ankle,…

Secret Santa Reveal!

…of us organized in the Alterations Needed Forum to do a Secret Santa gift exchange. After much secret question asking, shopping, packing and sending, we all shipped out, and soon afterward received, our Secret Santa gifts. It wasn’t until the package arrived in the mail that I learned who my Secret Santa was…Annie! My Secret Santa certainly did a good job! I love the color red, and the cardigan and socks are a delightful shade of purpley-red, whi…

Bangles for Small Wrists: Alex and Ani

…. Let’s see if you can fit my freakishly tiny wrists”. After a brief email exchange where I was assured these bangles could accommodate the tiniest of wrists, I agreed to give them a review. I picked a color (Rafaelian Gold), and waited for it to arrive. When the package arrived, I was surprised to not only find two bangles (I was only expecting one to review), but one of the bangles was even personalized with a little charm of my first initial (a…

Perfect Petite Trench Coat – Fit Review Friday

…e coat is lined with what I believe to be polyester (I forgot to check the label! Doh!), which has a really soft, smooth hand to it, similar to silk. For petites, note the shorter length (my Burberry comes down lower on me, close to the top of my knee, which I’ve always though about having shortened by my tailor), nice sleeve length, and waist belt that actually hits…get this…at my waist! It’s nice and slim, so it looks great left open with the be…

Shopping The Kids Department

…reton tee from Saint James. The famous Saint James “Meridien” tee is often labeled unisex and marketed to both genders; great for that slouchy cool look on average sized women, but bad for petites who may be swallowed whole by that unforgiving sizing. In the comments of a post from last year about classic Breton tees, a reader (thanks Eveange66!) noted she buys kids Saint James for a petite fit. Genius! As it turns out, Saint James kids tees are h…

Fit Review Friday – Mango Drapey Trench vs. Banana Republic Petite

…store for returns and must make them by mail. Mango sends a pre-addressed label with your purchase (which the postal worker promptly declared printed incorrectly, scribbling things out with a giant black marker), but you are responsible for postage & insurance coverage. To return this trench to Mango cost me $15 in shipping and insurance charges…a pretty hefty charge to try something on that, given my history, probably won’t fit. The approximate…
