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…

Life Lessons From the Shortest Kid in Class

…ou’ll be great at fashioning makeshift stools and reaching devices, like a petite MacGyver. Or you’ll invent an amazing new underhanded shooting strategy that catapults you to be the queen of H-O-R-S-E. See…you can do it too…just differently! Life lesson – you’ll probably never outgrow the need for step stools (or really tall romantic partners) to reach those high shelves. And you’ll probably never realize your dreams of being on the Olympic women…

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…

Short Story: The Day The Last Shoe Dropped

As a petite, I often learn the hard way that I am wearing the wrong size. One of my most memorable stories is the day the size 6 shoe dropped…literally… I was a fresh college grad, eager to join the workforce and had just scored an interview at a large company, for which I was completely unqualified. I needed to dress to impress, but I was 22, and my closet was still suffering from “I-don’t-know-how-to-dress-myself-itis”. Luckily, I had one ugly…

Guest Post on The Demoiselles

…sing such injustices, she started a blog documenting her adventures in xxs petite fashion and building a wardrobe, as well as a community for like-sized women to share their shopping experiences. I am the human equivalent of a teacup chihuahua. I conveniently fit in most overhead storage compartments. I never complain about inadequate leg room. I have been lifted, without permission, off the ground by complete strangers, but I’m usually quite nice…

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…

A Bit Overwhelmed

…lmed by clothing. I tried on this dress the other day by Calvin Klein in 2 petite (the smallest Calvin Klein has available in petites), and it was so bad, I laughed out loud, and wanted to share. It was a wrap dress, so I thought it might work, and I liked the ruffle detail down the front. But when I tried it on, there were a lot of things that just do not work for my small frame. The picture doesn’t completely capture the awfulness…so just trust…

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 sho…

Great for Tiny Petites: Wrap Dresses and Tops

Wrap dresses and tops are a petite girls best friend! The genius of a wrap is that…well…it can be wrapped around the tiniest of waistlines! Wraps allow tiny, thin petites who usually can’t fit into a brand or clothing line, find something that works for them. I love wraps, and look for them wherever I go. That’s why Diane von Furstenberg is on my list of designers to check out in every store I go to…she’s the queen of the wrap dress! Some of my…
