…real estate in my luggage. It also gives me more pockets in which to stuff essentials like snacks, ear buds, tissues (airplanes do a real number on my sinuses) and small electronics.

Petite Closet Essentials – Little Black Blazer

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.
