Glamour Magazine Picks Dresses for Petites – March 2011 Issue

…looser style if that’s what you fancy. =) Draping? – Why are they telling petites to wear dresses with draping? I’m not sure what that’s supposed to accomplish. Only one “petite” brand? – LOFT got a nod for their petite dress in this article, but the other brands (White House | Black Market, Michael Michael Kors & Gabby Applegate) are not listed in petite sizes. Micheal Micheal Kors does make petites, but maybe not in that particular dress? Come…

…of treasures there too. And now there’s one more reason to love tjmaxx.com…petites! Just launched in early April, the petite offering is available exclusively at tjmaxx.com with selections from a diverse range of styles and brands you’ve grown to love and expect from the retailer. I saw some petite well-known designer denim on there the first time I popped in, but I see some lucky petites already snatched those up! Things can move quickly! I eager…

Fit Review Friday – Banana Republic Petite Fall Arrivals

…or comparison here. First up…the double-breasted long vest: Also in black: Banana Republic Petite Double-Breasted Long Vest // Size Petite 00 $110 This vest is one of the reasons I’m excited for Marissa Webb at the helm of Banana Republic. A very similar style is available through her namesake line, but at Banana Republic, petite sizing can be had!

Navy Pinstripe Dress – Nordstrom Petites

…navy pinstripe dress with a collar and half-button placket from Nordstrom petites. It’s a nice classic piece with a menswear slant, but I wanted to do something a little different with it. This teal sweater (which was scored at Nordstrom last year) looks lovely paired with navy blue, so out of curiosity, I popped it over the dress to break the dress into pieces. I like how it makes it look like separates, and I really love the little peek of pins…

Mail Monday – Shrinking Silk & Linen and Best Skirt Lengths for Petites

…ts about how I shrink clothing. It seems like the best skirt length for us petites is ABOVE the knee, even if just a little – would you agree with that? A: My short answer is: yes, generally the best skirt length for petites is above the knee, even if just a smidgen so. My long answer is: your best skirt length is which ever one you feel most comfortable in, and works best for your lifestyle. Also, your body type plays a big role, which can effect…

Dresses That Run Small: BCBG Max Azria Petites

…ind the petite sizes in BCBG boutiques, and I have never seen separates in petites, so it looks like dresses are my only option for now. Lots of people tell me BCBG runs small, and stress the fact they have a tiny size XXS. Well, they aren’t quite that small because I have never found a size XXS at BCBG that has fit me well enough to justify purchasing it. However, the BCBG petite dresses at Nordstrom are pretty tiny, and I plan to keep my eye on…

Dress Pants for Tiny Petites: Ann Taylor

…ve failed me. The petite J.Crew suiting in size 0 was WAY too big, and the Banana Republic Martin Fit in petite 00 was not only too big, but the 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 rea…

Q&A: Petite Stylist – Trina Gupta

…s to shop for your petite clients? There are the obvious common ones, like Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, and Ann Taylor LOFT. Some other ones I really like that are perhaps a little less commonly frequented are French Connection, Theory and Mackage. 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. These brands run smaller all around, not just in the length, so it’s bette…

Adventures in Alterations: How To Choose Pants That Can Be Altered for Petites

…uld make it go away. Run away from these as soon as possible. These Banana Republic Petite Martin Fit pants in size Petite 00 tricked me. The waist wasn’t that big, and I thought with an easy waist alteration and leg/thigh slimming, these would work. However, my tailor took one look at these and said, “no way, the fit in the front is all wrong”. If you take a look at the front/crotch and inner thigh area, there is a bagginess and wrinkling that ac…
