In Memoriam: Saks Fifth Avenue Petite Department

…rated into two different buildings in BH…and the ugly step children of the fashion world, petites and plus sizes, have been swept aside to occupy a single floor in the menswear building. This means, to even get to these special sizes, you have to leave the safety of high heels, handbags, jewelry, cosmetics and everything else feminine…trek across the street and navigate through the ties and tweed to find your size…WTF? When I finally got there, I…

Petite Haute Couture Fashion House Carven Gets a Modern Makeover

…ng history. It began as a PETITE haute couture fashion house in Paris! Yes…PETITE! Fashion houses in the 1940’s and 1950’s catered mostly to older women (oh, how the tides have turned). Madame Carven, at the ripe age of 25, was frustrated with the lack of clothing offered for young women, and started the House of Carven. What makes all this even more fascinating is at 5’1″, Madame Carven not only set out to make clothes for young women…she set out…

Petite Fashion Challenge #8 – Spinning the Favorite

…not! I am actively trying to break myself of this bad habit, and took this Petite Fashion Challenge as an opportunity to address the problem on the blog.

Not the most “springy” of outfits, but it’s Jun…

Petite Fashion Challenge #7 – The Little Black Dress

…iginally I thought I would do something a little “Jackie Onasis” with this Petite Fashion Challenge, by adding some pearls, a brooch, and some fun heels. I started with the simple sheath dress, tossed on some pieces of jewelry and the red heels…but something just didn’t feel right. It wasn’t quite…me. I stared at my closet, and my eyes kept resting back on the seersucker blazer. But seersucker and a LBD? It just didn’t sound right! Out of other id…

Q&A: Petite Stylist – Trina Gupta

…ylist? I opened my business a couple of years ago primarily because I love fashion, and as a petite woman, there were a lot of designers whose clothes I loved but that were obviously not produced for women my height. I felt I had fewer choices in fashion retail than average sized women. I had done styling part-time for other companies and I knew I could contribute a lot more if I opened my own styling business, so a couple of years ago I started m…
