Where To Shop Size 4 Shoes and Smaller

…e missed in the comments. Do you know where I can find small size shoes in size 4 (or size 3, or size 2)? Do you know where I can buy small size shoes that ships internationally? How about small size WIDE shoes? – questions have been edited for brevity or clarity. A. As a shoe lover who can wear anything from size 4 shoes to size 5 shoes depending on the brand and style, I know fully well how difficult it is to find small shoe sizes. Below I’ve co…

Tiny Bras: The Elusive Size 30 Bra Band

size 32 bands for quite a while, even though I’ve always suspected I am a size 30. But the size 30 band bras are so hard to find, I could never find one to try on. I am in the market for some new underpinnings, so I did some online searching and figured I’d give nordstrom.com a try, since they usually carry a wide array of sizes, and there was a chance I could actually try them on in store. Sure enough, there were some size 30 bands, and a quick…

New Size: Burberry Size 0

…o the Beverly Hills Burberry boutique I went, and lo and behold…they had a size 0! This is the Buckingham in “honey”, in size 0. The sleeve fits a little wider than my two size 2 Burberry coats, but roughly the same length. The real difference is in the torso and shoulder. As I buttoned up, I was shocked at how fitted the torso was! It’s difficult to accurately compare shoulder width with my size 2 coats, but it looks from the photo that the size

Review: Ann Taylor Spring Tops (Size PXXS)

…hed up because there was too much fabric. Next, the Petite Silk T-Shirt in size PXXS: Top: Ann Taylor Silk T-Shirt, size PXXS The good: Great concept, great fabric, great color. This shirt would probably drape better if it were shorter. The bad: Again with the crazy length! I think the length on this ruined it, because the weight of all that fabric made it drape more like a tent than along my curves. I played with folding it up and it looked bette…

Review: Emyloo Shoes

…reviewed Pretty Small Shoes a while ago, and simply ordered my normal shoe size, size 35 (US5). That didn’t go so well, so for my second attempt, I measured my biggest foot, which indicated I was a size 34 (US4) in PSS. This seemed weird to me, but I went with it, and after multiple attempts to wear the size 34’s, I’ve realized they are just too small and we’ll have to part ways. I measured my feet according to the Emyloo instructions: pencil stra…

Sample Size: Tiffany from My Fashion Epiphany

This week’s Sample Size interview is a new-comer to the blogging scene. Tiffany from My Fashion Epiphany had me with her stylish, yet wearable outfits, and pretty, scenic photos. When I found out she was 5’1″, I liked her style even more and couldn’t wait to introduce her to the petite fashion community. Be sure to check out her fabulous blog! ______________________________ Tiffany’s stats: 5’1″, 125 lbs, 32 bust, 26/27 waist, 36 hips. Tops, I w…

Size 5 Shoe Phaseout?

…elusive prey. I’m told more shoe manufacturers are starting their lines at size 6 and have dropped size 5 completely. For people like me, it’s a dark night of the sole. It’s challenging to keep my jealousy in check at the other huntresses who easily choose among a slew of size 7 sandals. Or those who can take their pick of dress pumps in size 8. Me? I’m reduced to scanning boxes, any boxes, for the magical number – 5, 5, 5 – ooh! Here’s one! But i…

Bangle Bracelets for Thin Wrists (and How to Measure What Size Bangle You Need)

…to measure for my bangle size, I got 2 1/4 inches, so by this chart, I’m a size small (that’s a no brainer…I’m a size small EVERYTHING!). When I measured the bangles my mom gave me, they came in at somewhere between 2 1/4 and 2 1/2 inches, which seems about right because the bangles I own are still just a bit big on me. This also makes sense because most “one size fits all” bangles you’ll find in stores are about 2 1/2 inches, hence why they fall…

Review: Gap 1969 Jeans in Size Petite 00

…e Sexy Boot Jean, in Saturated Wash, size Petite 00: Jeans: Gap Sexy Boot, size Petite 00 Top: H&M, size XS Shoes: Cole Haan Genevieve Open Toe Pumps, size 5 These were the best fit out of the whole group. The waist was decent, the rise was nice and low, and the length was perfect on me (I have REALLY long legs for my height, so I luck out with petite length pants…they’re usually perfect with heels). What I didn’t particularly care for was the fit…

Fit Review Friday – J.Crew Denim Jackets in Size Petite XXXS (& Comparison to AEO Version)

…happy about it! I’ve definitely found myself swimming in J.Crew’s smallest sizes in the past, so if this new size pans out, I can see myself shopping J.Crew petites much more often! I’m an monstrous fall shopper, so I’ll be anxiously awaiting the fall lineup to try more in this size (a commenter from another post (Hi Suz!) praised the fit of this size in pants. Whoohoo!), but for now, I picked up denim jackets to see how the sizing runs in person….

Blush Spikes – Sam Edelman for the Small-Footed

…retailers. Nordstrom did small-footed ladies a solid by ordering not only size 5, but sizes 4 and 4.5, which I really, really appreciate from a company at a time when most stores are discontinuing even a size 5. Thank you, Nordstrom. Not only do you carry small shoe sizes online, but also in your stores, and I really appreciate that. I bought my first pair of designer shoes from you, and many, many more since. (Special-sized ladies – it’s importa…

Aritzia Talula Exeter Shrunken Blazer

…Heights jeans, size 23 (hemmed) :: Ann Taylor Perfect Patent Skinny belt, size xs :: Cole Haan shoes, size 5 After being disappointed by the J.Crew Petite Schoolboy blazer, I forged ahead full speed in my search for a grey, nicely detailed blazer. Fall merchandise is hitting shelves, and tales of the tiny fitting Talula Exeter blazer from Aritzia began to re-surface. After seeing the size 00 fit snugly on some of the tiniest of petites (on LaLaaL…
