Fit Review Friday – J.Crew Fall Arrivals in Size Petite 000 & XXXS

…’t take photos until the very end of the day and natural light was scarce. J.Crew Campbell Blazer in Wool Flannel – Black // Size Petite 000 $198 As J.Crew seems to be phasing out the Schoolboy Blazer (although I’m hopeful it’ll come back deeper into the fall arrivals), I’m happy to see a new blazer design debut for fall that isn’t another iteration of the Regent (I’m not a fan of the stand collar, it’s just asking to get makeup rubbed all over it…

You Had Me At J.Crew – Petite Size Wool Skirt

…letter got a sneak peak at this already… =) Let me start by saying, I love J.Crew. I love the styles, I love the fabrics, I love the colors…if I could, I would dress in J.Crew every day. However, J.Crew does not love me. Rather, J.Crew does not love my tiny petite frame, because J.Crew sizing is wacky. Even the J.Crew petites I’ve tried have fit me awful, and way over-sized, so when I found this J.Crew wool skirt in size 00, and it fit, I pounced…

I wanted to catch it on sale, but it slipped through my fingers when 00P sold out quickly in the color I wanted (peony). Then I thought I might be able to find cheaper in a better fit elsewhere, so the search continued. What I found was I really lov…

In Memoriam: Saks Fifth Avenue Petite Department

…left hanging on those racks was boxy and matronly, in fabrics that are poor in comparison to the items one can find on the contemporary floor. I guess it comes down to the fact the offerings in the petite department just aren’t what petites want to buy. That’s why so many of us are pawing through the “regular” sizes to find those elusive XXS’s and 00’s. Does this make you sad? Or are you as apathetic about it as I am?…

Petite Fit Guide: Improper Fit of Regular Size Jeans on a Petite Woman

…ery guilty of this improper fit offense, because I’ve yet to find a fit in petite jeans that I like better than the fit of my regular size Paige Premium Denim, so I deal with this, but it still bothers me. I think it’s important for petite women to know how regular sized garments are not meeting their needs, and let them choose to be concerned about the fit or not. So…here are my Paige regular size 24 jeans that I’ve had hemmed and the waist taken…

Fit Review Friday – J.Crew Petite Swing Trench & Sale Sweaters

…-hum. The color Petrol Blue Navy is grey leaning towards blue, and true to J.Crew sweater form, features tight fitted sleeves and a boxy torso. Being petite, I find the shorter length flattering, and great for layering on top of longer shirts. Some reviewers complained of itchiness, which I could certainly see if you have sensitive skin. It felt fine to me, but my skin is a pretty tough cookie. Collection Cashmere Cardigan – Size Petite XS On sale…
