Fit Review Friday – Banana Republic Petite Fall Items

…ve you an idea of fit. Also in pink: Banana Republic Petite Multi-Zip Moto Jacket // Size Petite 00 You saw this jacket worn in a post already, but I figured it was worth a mini fit review anyway. This jacket is more of a structured knit, constructed in a thick ponte fabric. I found the structure in the torso to give it a nice swingy fit at the back, typical of cropped moto style jackets. The sleeves are nice and slim, and the shoulder is narrow (…

Petite Bras: The Little Bra Company

…n my girls so…um…well, you know what I mean. =) It’s amazing what a proper petite fit can do for a petite woman. I also tried their t-shirt bra, but found the cups to be too small for me, which is amazing, because very rarely do I ever find anything too small! The list of retailers in the US and abroad carrying The Little Bra Company is expanding, so see if a store near you is carrying them so you can try them on in person. If not, they are offeri…

…usual, 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.

Making a Mini Statement – J.Crew Mini Pearl Supernova Necklace

…ilar) | Chanel handbag I’ve been secretly eyeing this little necklace from J.Crew for weeks, and when it finally went on sale last week, I pounced! Then it went on extra 30% off with code MUSTHAVE, and now I’ve officially over-paid…oh well. I still love it and wanted to share it’s adorableness with anyone else who might want to pick it up for less than what I bought it for.

J.Crew Sizing From Days of Yore

…, I’d be lucky to find this kind of fit in a size petite 00. I didn’t shop J.Crew back in 2006, so I’ve had nothing to compare current offerings to, but I’ve read plenty of comments in blog posts and forums from others who used to fit a certain size in J.Crew’s old sizes, and now find themselves wearing several sizes smaller. These creeping sizes aren’t exclusive to J.Crew…it just so happens I have an example in my hands, so I may be perhaps throw…

J.Crew Silk Blythe Blouse

…e J.Crew holiday sale, but apparently that was the “Lucinda”, and I got my J.Crew mixed up. I picked up the Lucinda in “rust” (one of my all time favorite colors) after seeing it look fabulous on Chloe, but on me it looked more like a rust colored, pleated potato sack, so I didn’t even bother taking photos for the blog. A few weeks ago, I got a hot tip from Wendy that the Blythe blouse worked for her in a regular size 00, so I figured the petite 0…

Review: J.Crew Petite Perfect Shirt in Medium Gingham

…order because I’ve had gingham on the brain, and realized I’d never tried J.Crew’s button down shirts before. So why not give it a shot, right? Here she is in size 00P. View from the back: View from the side: The shirt lays pretty flat from the front, but the views from the back and side show just much extra fabric there is. This shirt would definitely need a side slimming on someone my size. The fabric is nice, thick and crisp, and I appreciate…

Petite Fashion Challenge #12 – From Night To Day

…Where I added “glam” was with a sequin shell, which I just picked up from J.Crew recently (more on it later). I know what you’re thinking…sequin shells are glam? Since I’ve never owned sequins before, this little shell feels incredibly sparkly for my wardrobe, which is typically full of tweeds and collared shirts. I finished off the outfit with long, dangly necklaces, and Loubies. It’s not “oh my” glam, but I’d certainly feel sparkly sipping on a…
