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

…l 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). The Campbell looks a lot like the Schoolboy at first…

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

…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 on it instantly. Walking past J.Crew, I glanced at the window display, and did a double take. My “spidey-sense” (or maybe I should call it my “petitey-sense”) went off, and I had to take a closer look at what appeared to be a teeny tiny ski…

J.Crew Gingham – Boy’s vs. Women’s Petite

…option in a decent fit, albeit, not perfect. The first time I tried the J.Crew Petite Perfect Shirt in gingham, I was concerned about the extra fabric around the torso, overall length, and shoulder. 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 loved…

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

…zes 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 the sizing runs in person. The verdict…size petite xxx-small is pretty awesome! If you like fitted styl…

In Memoriam: Saks Fifth Avenue Petite Department

…looks, clothing executives said, never made the leap from regular sizes to petite. So the very word petite became synonymous with many women who shopped there — working women over the age 50. Petite Saks shoppers were outraged, and responded by bombarding Saks management with complaints. The result was Saks re-instated it’s petite department in a select number of stores…one of which is the Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills, which happens to be th…

Petite Cashmere Smack Down – J.Crew vs. Ann Taylor

…pon code. Still a bit expensive, especially since it’s $30 more than the J.Crew. J.Crew sales make me smile + 1 Final point tally: J.Crew: 3 points Ann Taylor: 4 points And the winner by decision…Ann Taylor! Now for the important question…should I keep it? It’s expensive at $104…but it’s quite nice and chic isn’t it? And, gosh, do I love cashmere. Worth it? Does the color suit me? Yay or nay? Disclosure – Clicking or purchasing through the links i…

Fit Review Friday – J.Crew Pants in Size Petite 000

…al, you can find my measurements for comparison here. On to the reviews… J.Crew Petite Ryder Pant – Weathered Spruce // Size Petite 000 First up is the Ryder Pant in size petite 000. I choose this pant to try because I like the trouser styling, including side pockets, and welt back pockets. The silhouette also looked pretty slim, which is usually a more flattering look on my frame. The fabric on these is super stretchy, but substantial, like a thi…

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

…ans I recently tried on: Fading on regular sized jeans tailored down for a petite woman Fading on petite size jeans (not tailored) on a petite woman Do you see the difference between the fading on the regular jeans and the fading on the petite jeans? Fading on jeans should end a little below the knee, around the spot where the jeans would see sun fading when you are sitting down. Because the petite size jeans are made for petite women, the knee ha…

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

…waist. I’ll add here that I also tried size petite xxs, but opted for the petite xs instead. The petite xxs was very, very snug, and I feared I wouldn’t be able to pull it over a sleeved shirt if I wanted to layer. I also like to give my cashmere (and other wool sweaters) a little wiggle room in case of shrinkage. I also took size pxs for the merino v-neck cardigan, so these cashmere ones seem to running about the same size. Japanese Poplin Swing…

J.Crew Petite Coats – Lady Day and Stadium Cloth Peacoat

…same boring outfit underneath. =P When this coat was highlighted on Extra Petite, I had to take advantage of the sale J.Crew had going on and give it a try. I love the look of J.Crew coats, and would love to add a few to my wardrobe. I’ve also come to the realization that I need more casual coats to survive the winter, especially now that I have little Clinton, who needs to be walked, rain or shine, even if it’s unbearably frigid outside. So, I c…
