Tiny Cashmere: American Eagle Outfitters

…Not to mention only $80! For cashmere, this is a really good price. And, really…you can never have too much cashmere. Also of note, there is a little embroidered eagle on these cardigans, but it is the same color as the sweater, and hidden at the bottom and off to the side. This is good, because no petite woman wants to advertise she shops in stores for teens, right? Another cashmere option at AE: American Eagle Sexy Scoop Cashmere Cardigan, $79.5…

Altered Pearl Bracelets

…little reminder that not only clothing, but accessories can be altered for petite frames as well. My favorite sterling silver ball bracelet was shortened by me a few years ago, but I recently discovered it’s too-big-for-me sister in my jewelry box. Nevermind…just took a closer look and it’s a box chain underneath, and can’t be shortened without the ability to weld sterling silver back together. Darn! Does anyone do their own bead/pearl restringing…

Presenting The Alterations Needed Forum!

…mers and constant updates were a huge problem), and fortunately, many more petite-centric communities, bloggers and resources started to become available, so the AN Forum wasn’t as necessary as it was when we started. Thank you again, and happy shopping! =) – Kelly Hands down, the best thing about writing this blog has been the community of readers that have grown around and supported it. When I first started this little blog, my only hope was tha…

Adventures in Alterations: Taking in a Jacket

…a good fit was eluding me for so long, that when I found this one in size Petite 00, and it fit semi small, I got so excited I bought it right away without really taking a good hard look at it. Did I mention it was also on sale, which quickened my response to whip out my credit card? Double offender! To make a long story short, this jacket has been sitting in my closet for over a year, and each time I pull it out with the intention to wear it, I…

One Girl’s Madewell Tunic is Another Girl’s Shirt Dress – Fit Review Friday

…Shirt with Pockets in white & Blue Stripemix // Size xx-small The perfect petite shirt dress has eluded me season after season. I want it to be made of cotton poplin shirting fabric, have a straight “men’s shirt” shape to it without being too overwhelming, a pointed collar, full button placket (so it can also be worn completely unbuttoned as a top layer) and side pockets. This seems to be a rather tall order! So when I saw this tunic from Madewel…

Ann Taylor: In Store Only Coupon, Useless for Size 00P and 16!

…s an “in stores only” coupon, Ann Taylor has essentially ignored it’s most petite and most plus size customers. The Ann Taylor official Facebook page announcing the discontinuation of 00P and 16 in stores. Thanks to Shorty Stories for first documenting this. How strange that a store that specifically made the decision to only offer certain sizes online, would then turn around and use “in store only” promotions. If certain sizes are only offered on…

Barneys Warehouse Sale: August 2009

…Diane von Furstenberg dresses and tops in sizes 0, XS and P (the P is for petite). Last time I found a very tiny Rag & Bone skirt in size 24, so keep an eye out for them as well. There are no dressing rooms, so wear a tight fitting camisole and either leggings or a skirt to make trying on clothing in front of mirrors in public view a little easier. I forgot this and wore jeans last time, but grabbed an extra-large elastic waist skirt to cover up…

Adventures in Alterations: Taking in the Sides of a Shirt

Remember the Banana Republic petite size xxs top that needed the sides to be taken in? I got it back from my tailor! Here it is before alterations: Untied Tied The shirt was cut a bit generously, and even though there is a tie in back to pull in the waist, there was so much extra fabric that it bunched too much when tied. After alterations: Tied Cost of Alteration: $18 Taking the sides in removed the excess fabric that was bunching around my shou…
