A Note To Readers: Thank You For Reading Shorty Stories!

ShareAs you may have noticed, Shorty Stories has not had new posts from this site in several months.  I have decided to concentrate on my main site, DelectablyChic! and sister site, The DelectablyChic!

UK’s Ted Baker uses Petite Models? – UPDATE: The Model is 5’10”

ShareUPDATE: Looks like it’s a typo.  I just got a note from the people at Ted Baker who said that the model is actually 5’10”.  Too bad.  It would have been nice to see a non-celebrity petite model! Diverse body types should encompass EVERY SIZE, including height, not just curvier women! This is the first […]

Blogiversary Day: Looking Back at Five Years of Shorty Stories!
