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! Closet, which has been featuring my outfit posts for the past few months.  At first, I was planning on featuring body image […]

CH-CH-CH-CH Changes for Shorty Stories

ShareOver the next week or so, I will be transferring all 2012 outfit/lookbook posts to a new site called The DelectablyChic! Closet where I will be posting my style posts starting some time in early August.  All posts coming from the site, which will include looks from my closet, wish list items as well as […]

Time for a Blog Makeover?

ShareI know, I know, it sounds like I’m just doing what everyone else is, but after 5 1/2 years, I feel that Shorty Stories is getting a little tired, even after moving it from Blogger to WordPress.  When I first started, it was, of course, a “ranting” site to get people talking about petite issues.  […]

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

ShareYes, we’re five years old today!  You can find our very first post here.  Many of our earliest posts were image-free, since the site was more of a rant about petite issues blog than one that was style-related.  I wish I can get a screen capture of what the blog looked like when it first […]

ShareElaine (Toronto Beauty Reviews), Loretta (Petite in the City), Jessy (The Little Dust Princess) and I (Shorty Stories and DelectablyChic!) got together last night for Winterlicious, the winter edition of the twice-yearly “Licious” event here in Toronto.  This was a long over-due get-together as we had originally planned something before the holidays.  In fact, other […]

From DelectablyChic!: Petite Fashion Challenge: From Glam to Casual!

Share I’m going to do something different this session. Rather than at Shorty Stories, my Petite Fashion Challenge is posted at DelectablyChic!, which focuses on style, dining and travel. So, for those of you who are not regular Shorty Stories readers, the Petite Fashion Challenge, which launched in 2010, asks petite bloggers (and some non-bloggers, […]

Happy 2012 Everyone! Looking Forward to an Exciting Year!

ShareThis year, Shorty Stories celebrates its fifth anniversary as a blog (the site launched a year before as a non-blog site, but I now consider 2006 my “beta year”).  We have come far as a blog over the past five years, writing about many petite issues beyond the typical outfit posts, and covered quite a […]

Shorty Stories meets The Man Repeller

ShareLeandra Medine of The Man Repeller made a personal appearance at Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street yesterday to celebrate the launch of the Holt Renfrew blog.  Attendees all had a chance to pose for pictures with her….her height, combined with her extra-high heels made me look like a hobbit! More pictures over at DelectablyChic!  Gotta […]

A Get-Together of Petite Bloggers

ShareI know that Extra Petite and The Little Dust Princess have already posted this picture, but a few weeks ago, I got a Tweet that Jean from Extra Petite was in town on business.  I quickly wrote back to see if she could meet us Toronto petite bloggers for coffee.  This was smack dab in […]
