J.Crew’s ‘Hen Sweater’: Cute or Just Plain Silly?

It kind of caught my attention because it’s different from what J.Crew typically sells.  Featuring a hen in a beret, the cute-looking sweater comes in two colours – navy (with a cream-coloured hen wearing a baby pink beret) and camel (or acorn blue, with a blue hen wearing a hot pink beret), sizes XXS to […]

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 […]

Full Skirts and the Petite

ShareI recently purchased two full skirts, one from Femme de Carriere, a Montreal-based clothing store with office-friendly clothing (both casual and formal) and another from a Kate Spade outlet in Niagara Falls, New York.  Some people think that  these skirts can overwhelm a petite frame, but it really depends on the style (e.g. how much […]

BCBG Dress for a Bat Mitzvah

ShareThis weekend, my husband and I drove down to Rochester, NY to attend his cousin’s Bat Mitzvah.  Though we’ve been married for nearly two years and together for close to seven, this was my  first bat mitzvah service – I had attended many receptions before.  It was a weekday service at a Reform temple, and […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Swirl Dress

ShareSorry for taking so long to post this! I’ve been crazy-busy wrapping up the DelectablyChic! Social (which was pretty  good, by the way) and just didn’t have time to take pictures.  The dress is so light weight and summer-ready and I’ve worn it out a couple of times already, including to a Father’s Day dinner […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic, Part 1: The Pisces Top

ShareOne of the items I purchased from the Trina Turk collection that Banana Republic recently released was the Pisces top.  I had thought about getting it in the warm combination (pinks, oranges and yellows), but decided on the cool version (turquoises, greens, blues, etc…) as it was more of a contrast than a compliment on […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Loot

ShareSome of the Banana Republic stores hosted an after 5 event to celebrate the launch of their Trina Turk collaboration where people got to shop for the looks as well as enjoy some delicious refreshments.  The collection of brightly coloured, resort-inspired pieces includes a very good selection of petite sizing, including tops, skirts (well, skirt […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Collab Video with Rescue Dogs

ShareIsn’t this ADORABLE? The sale is starts a week from today (June 7)!  Hope there’ll be pieces that’ll fit petite gals!  There are so many brightly coloured pieces in this collection. Though my closet is not nearly as drab as it used to be, colour is always good!   Are you looking forward to this […]

Ann Taylor Opening Two Stores in Toronto

This was announced Thursday, but it isn’t clear based on the articles whether this means that there are actually two Ann Taylor stores, or if one is LOFT.  If it is indeed two Ann Taylor stores, my guess is that one of them will be at Yorkdale (long rumoured) and another will either be on… [Continue Reading]
