What? Ron White Carries Sizes 4 & 4.5 at Nordstrom, Not Own Boutique

Share…not even online!  Ron White has received a lot of press lately about his line of oh-so-comfortable shoes, but I can’t wear them.  The smallest size I could find at the boutique and online is a 35/5 and it wasn’t just a little bit too big, something that can be helped by insoles, but MUCH […]

Bare Legs or Leggings?

ShareI recently bought a long top/short dress from petite-friendly brand AIME (I couldn’t zip up the XS past my waist.  Must be a ribcage issue. This dress is a S), which I’ve actually had my eye on for a few seasons.  I first saw this at LG Fashion Week in 2009.  The fit is very snug, but […]
