Brand that Sometimes Runs Small: Banana Republic Petites

…etty close to my person style, so it has been a great resource for me. The petite XS and petite 00 items either fit just right, or seem to be about 1 size too big. Here is a rundown of what the fit has been for me so far: Tops/Blouses: I put the tops in 3 categories: silky, button down, and rayon/stretchy. Silky tops in PXS always fit about 1-2 sizes too large on me. This includes the bust, waist and sleeve. I suppose a tailor could make one work,…

Review – Short Story Petite Clothing Subscription Box

…– petite size XSP (fits like XXSP) Kyle High Rise Slim Fit Ankle Skinny – petite size 0P Same petite jean, but now let’s look at this cardigan. Also in a petite size, this fitted cardigan follows my figure and hits at the perfect spot on my wrist. After so many years of wearing loose and oversized top layers, it’s nice to have something a little more fitted and short to pair with this season’s wide and baggy bottoms. In fact, I already wore this…

Online Shoe Repair – Cobbler Concierge Review

…red for Louboutins) and sole color (black or natural), a prepaid shipping label, and two pieces of tape to secure the package shut when you’re ready to ship them off. I made notes on the form about repairing the toes, and choose a natural colored rubber sole, since I do so much walking in these, and rubber gives better protection. I packaged the shoes in the supplied tissue, taped up the box, and slapped on the prepaid shipping label. I dropped t…

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…

Petite Haute Couture Fashion House Carven Gets a Modern Makeover

…At this point in my life, I certainly can’t afford a high-end designer wardrobe, but I would love the option to buy a few special pieces in petite proportions that would hopefully not need invasive alterations. A girl can dream… Is there a retail market for high-end designer petite sizes? Would you splurge on high-end designer items if they came in petites?

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…

…ual, you can find my measurements for comparison here. On to the review… J.Crew Petite Icon Trench Coast // Size Petite 000 If I didn’t already have a trench in a similar color, I would have kept this trench coat in a heartbeat! This thing just FITS, and feels nice to wear with it’s thick, heavy cotton construction. I’m always a big fan of classic, traditional details because then an item will live on in your wardrobe as a “classic” vs. become dat…

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 – Mango Drapey Trench vs. Banana Republic Petite

…nd insurance charges…a pretty hefty charge to try something on that, given my history, probably won’t fit. The approximate measurements of size xxs are as follows: Shoulder: 15″ Torso Width: 20″ Sleeve Length: 24″ Length: 35″ Here’s how it compares to the Banana Republic petite version: Review of Banana Republic Drapey Trench // Size petite xxs I know it’s not a perfect comparison, but I hope you can visually see there is just less fabric all arou…

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…
