Ankle Booties For Petites – Rag & Bone ‘Margot’

…etite person, I’ve been especially picky. In my opinion, ankle booties for petites should have four requirements: have a comfortable-to-walk-in heel (my ideal heel height is around 3 inches). have a streamlined and non-clunky profile (chunky or busy styles can visually shorten a leg line). dip down in front to give presence to petites and a more leg lengthening silhouette. sized to comfortably fit any small and/or narrow shoe size you may have. Fo…

Peek-a-Boo Leather (and Ann Taylor Fall Arrivals)

…lightly, which is my favorite part. And of course, all these items come in petite. =) Also…how cool is this patent leather tortoise clutch? The attached chain is long enough to wear crossbody, in yet another way to take something from dressy to casual. How cute would it look crossbody with an oversized stripe shirt and slouchy denim on the weekend? Thank you to Ann Taylor for sponsoring this post (and letting me play with new fall arrivals)! — Out…

One Girl’s Madewell Tunic is Another Girl’s Shirt Dress – Fit Review Friday

…Shirt with Pockets in white & Blue Stripemix // Size xx-small The perfect petite shirt dress has eluded me season after season. I want it to be made of cotton poplin shirting fabric, have a straight “men’s shirt” shape to it without being too overwhelming, a pointed collar, full button placket (so it can also be worn completely unbuttoned as a top layer) and side pockets. This seems to be a rather tall order! So when I saw this tunic from Madewel…

Travel Outfit Essentials

…blanket if you get cold. I’m a fan of J.Crew blazers because they come in petite and often have hidden inside pockets…great for storing your cell phone, photo id, or jewelry/watches you need to take off as you go through security. Slip-on shoes – makes going through security way faster, and are easy to slip off during the flight when I want to switch into socks (my feet get cold easily, so I always bring a pair of socks with me in my carry-on). R…

Equipment Brett in New Size XXS – Fit Review Friday

…r area that pleasantly surprised me was the bust button placements. Fellow petites will probably be familiar with the phenomenon of awkward button placements on non-petite shirts. One button feels a little too high and stuffy, but the one below practically exposes your entire chest. With the top 3 buttons undone, everything felt secure, but could still easily reveal a hint of a pretty lace bra or fun camisole if you’re so inclined. Photo #3 shows…

Everlane Chunky Wool – Black Marl

…y drape and seamless shoulder, I found this chunky knit to be surprisingly petite friendly. The merino wool is soft and cozy, the marl is perfect, and the side slits with high-low hem feel very modern. From the style down to the 100% merino wool construction, it feels “perfect”, which is exactly what I hope to find at Everlane. The only thing not “perfect” are the sleeves, which are about 2 inches too long on me, but a simple fold at the cuff is p…

Cropped Leather Jacket

…to a cropped length and shrunken fit, the sizing works really well for my petite frame. Perhaps best of all, that shoulder is nice and narrow, which I find most frustratingly hard to find, especially in items I prefer not to alter, such as leather. Besides the fit, I’m pretty drunk in love with this piece. It’s my absolute favorite shade of medium cool grey, although it also comes in olive and black if you’re so inclined. The hardware is matched…

Knowing the Rules…So You Can Break Them

…as, and I’ve studied “the rules” like research papers. For instance, being petite, I know I should avoid baggy clothing, cutting my leg-line, and keep proportions balanced for my height. I also know this outfit does not follow the rules. The boyfriend jeans swallow my figure and the rolled cuff cuts my leg-line, making my legs look short. The blouse is oversized and long for my proportions, and especially when left untucked, drags me down visually…
