Review: Banana Republic Camille Jacket

Banana Republic Camille Jacket, size ooP :: Ann Taylor Factory shell, size xxsp :: Paige jeans, size 23 (hemmed) :: Christian Louboutin Simple 85 Pumps, size 35 :: Ann Taylor Perfect Patent belt, size xs This little knit jacket caught my eye early on when fall arrivals started popping up online.

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…

Review: Maggy London Petites

…up, this stretch satin sheath dress in size 2P: Extra fabric: Maggy London Petites Stretch Satin Sheath Dress, size 2P Last, this ruffle trim dress in size 2P: Extra fabric, and wow, those ruffles are overwhelming: Maggy London Petites Ruffle Dress, size 2P Verdict: Based on fit, the knit dress was the best.

White, Blue & Tangerine

…ude undies). Decently priced at $88, I got these on further discount using Banana Republic Rewards on Piperlime. The sweater is a recent purchase from Banana Republic. Sadly, this sweater isn’t available in petites online, but I saw them in petites in my local BR stores. This means size xxsp isn’t available (since it’s not sold in stores), but I found a size xsp to work in a roomy, slouchy kind of way. The mix of khaki, cream, and tangerine tango…

Banana Republic Asymmetrical Tee in size XXS petite. The neckline is ill-proportioned on someone so short. T…

Jersey fabrics are stretchy and drapey, so they are easier to fit into than more structured material. I love wrap dress…

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…
