Dresses That Run Small: BCBG Max Azria Petites

…n the Burberry website or boutiques…where you will find them is on nordstrom.com or in Nordstrom stores…weird huh? Well, the same goes for the BCBG Max Azria petite dresses that I tried on recently in my local Nordstrom store. The labels actually say “petite”, so these have even smaller proportions than the regular BCBG sizes. You won’t find the petite sizes in BCBG boutiques, and I have never seen separates in petites, so it looks like dresses ar…

Fit Review Friday – J.Crew Denim Jackets in Size Petite XXXS (& Comparison to AEO Version)

…missing an x!), I’m pretty happy about it! I’ve definitely found myself swimming in J.Crew’s smallest sizes in the past, so if this new size pans out, I can see myself shopping J.Crew petites much more often! I’m an monstrous fall shopper, so I’ll be anxiously awaiting the fall lineup to try more in this size (a commenter from another post (Hi Suz!) praised the fit of this size in pants. Whoohoo!), but for now, I picked up denim jackets to see how…

…go wrong. If you call customer service or talk to a sales associate in store, they should be able to find a pair of these and get them sent to you. These are so incredibly cute!

…Kendall Farr suggests trying a tailor that advertises specializing in custom menswear. A tailor skilled in menswear tailoring will be more likely to be able to handle your most difficult alterations. —– Of course, very few women will fall perfectly into one category, shape, type, or whatever you want to call it.

Fit Review Friday – Petite Leather Jacket

…was pleasantly surprised to see it now comes in petite sizes down to xxs! Immediately in the cart she went because I had to give it a try. It’s rare to find leather in petite sizes, especially in decent styles. It arrived yesterday and I have to say I’m pretty impressed…I think it looks better on than it does on the model. There is a slight hourglass shape to the torso, so it ever so slightly defines a waist, while still maintaining a biker/moto a…

Review: Ann Taylor Petite Goodies

…ike: The print could be a tad smaller. I would also like to see the top slimmer, and shorter. Of course this can be altered, but there is a side zipper that makes things a bit tricky. The zipper would have to be removed, the top slimmed, the zipper replaced, and cut. Here’s a visual of the how the top could potentially look with different alterations: It would look so much better slimmed, and maybe not quite as short as I have it in the picture, b…

Spotted: Size Petite XXS at Banana Republic Factory Stores

…n! I haven’t been in a Banana Republic Factory Store in a few months, so sometime after my last visit, they started carrying size petite XXS! Pant offerings have also changed, with sizing now going down to petite 00. This is interesting in part because even regular Banana Republic stores are not carrying this size. Their petite sizing only goes down to a petite XS, with petite XXS only available online. I didn’t try any pants while I was there, be…
