Some Picks From Ann Taylor Loft in XXS Petite

…e neckline is too low, just take up the straps. Easy and cheap! Ann Taylor Loft Petite Sleeveless Dress with Ruffle V-Neck, $19.99 on sale from $39.50.

Why Must They Put Petite Jeans on Tall Models?

…s sales on the site!! Thank you for the response Gilt Groupe! I still wish petite models could be used to model petite clothing, because ultimately, I want to see how the garment will look on short little me, not cropped and awkward on a taller model.
