Review: Banana Republic Petite XXS and 00

…in real life, aside from the color this top is a bit ugly. I wouldn’t recommend it. Next up, the Linen Sorbet Dress in size P00: Petite Linen Sorbet Dress, size P00 The stock photo showed a beautiful coral color…but this dress is PINK! I was not expecting this bright of a color! What I like: The fabric is nice and crunchy like linen should be, and it has a boned corset top. A sturdy back zip cinches you in. There is also a little stretchy elast…

ASOS Petite Mustard Skinny Jeans

…e bottom of this post for measurements). Petites who require a longer inseam may find themselves flooding in these pants. There is a slight waist gap on me, but nothing worth altering. Pretty good from the rear, although I dislike those little folds of fabric at the top the back pockets. I tend not to know what to do with my hands, so in pockets they go! I kept messing up the little flaps of fabric in the back pockets, which makes them look unsmoo…

Petite Sized Accesories: Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag Mini Mini

…was way too big for me to pull off. Then came the Morning After Bag Mini (MAM), but the dimensions were still a bit too bulky for me, and I figured the bag was just not for me, purely based on my size. Then, this year, the Morning After Bag Mini Mini was introduced, and I knew I finally had my chance to officially own the Rebecca Minkoff I’ve had my eye on for so long.

…ront Shell, size PXXS Jeans: Paige Blue Heights 14 inch Skinny, size 23 (hemmed) Shoes: Cole Haan Carma Suede Pump, size 5 (same style) (similar) Bracelet: Vintage sterling silver and turquoise children’s cuff I tend to like classic items that have a weird twist, like maybe an unexpected color, or a fun lining. I think that’s why I kept thinking about this sweater. It’s a classic cardigan, in a functional color, but the rouching detail gives it so…

Review: Ann Taylor Spring Tops (Size PXXS)

…ans: Paige Laurel Canyon in McKinley, size 24 (waist taken in and length hemmed) Shoes: Cole Haan Genevieve Open Toe Air Pump, size 5 The good: Nice drapey fabric that falls nicely and doesn’t swamp my shape. Cute front ruffle that I loooove. The bad: Armholes could be smaller, as they show a bit of my bra from the side. Armholes are also a little wide towards the bottom so they flare out a bit (but they also flare a little on the model, so I gues…

Body Proportions and Petiteness: Why Do Some Petites Look More Petite Than Others?

…looked the smallest. However, I was always shocked to hear other people comment on how tiny she was. It didn’t make sense, I was the smaller one, and I wanted recognition for how awesomely petite I was! What was happening? I think the reason lies in the differences between our body proportions. As I’ve mentioned before in past postings…I have a short torso body type. What this means is, in comparison to the rest of my body, my torso is short, and

…em). Length aside, this dress is fully lined through the body, and has side pockets which are always a plus in my book. I wish it came in more colors, because I could see this being a really nice airy summer dress if it were white. The approximate measurements of size Petite 00 are as follows: Shoulder: 14″ Bust: 15″ Waist: 12.5″ Hip: 16″ Sleeve Length: 16.5″ Overall Length: 36.5″…

Grey and Tan (+ Petite Cashmere)

…nd are now packing and prepping to move. Phew! I’m happy to finally have a moment to put a blog post together! Cashmere, like Paris, is always a good idea (unless of course you are allergic to either, in which case, my heart goes out to you). For that reason, I’m always on the lookout for petite or petite-friendly cashmere to add to the collection. Luckily, the petites at Nordstrom are quickly becoming a go-to when it comes to petite basics (like…
