Just in case you are new to my blog, I want to warn you not to get fooled by my photos. 😉 Many times when I meet someone who is following me on my blog or social media, the first thing they will say is “Oh, I didn’t realize you are this short.” Lol. You may think I am not a short girl based on my photos. Well, I am pretty good at making myself looking much taller than I really am. You may surprised to find out that I am only 5 foot tall.
Being a petite girl, buying clothes the right length has always been a challenge, especially pants. I hate that I have to cut and hem just about everything. I always hope to find stores whose focus is on petite women like me.
There are some brands on the market who carry petite sections, but the petite clothing market has a reputation for being short on fashion, and making women looks old. I am no longer interested in the buttoned-up work wear popularized in the 80s. I want more youthful, and properly tighter-fitting clothing with contemporary style. Petite Dressing is what exactly I am looking for.
There are so many cute and trendy pieces on Petite Dressing, like bell sleeve tops, flirty dresses for the holiday seasons, and proper fitting pants that don’t need to be hemmed. And guess what? There isn’t a button-down in sight. By the way, the store owner is also a petite gal just like me, and she hand picked all those good quality and tasteful clothes for us. You can follow the brands Instagram account to see how she and others have styled these cute petite friendly pieces.
In this post, I am only going to show you two of the sweaters I got from Petite Dressing. Next week, you will see more from them, so make sure come back to check it out later. 😉 Anyway, both of the sweaters fit me perfectly and they are so on trend now too. The bell sleeve top seems more casual for most people because of the color and probably the first thing you think to pair with it is jeans. But, I always like to pair a piece with an unexpected one to create a different look. So I picked this elegant gray wool skirt to bring out the simple but still sophisticated vibe of this sweater.
This red off the shoulder sweater quickly became my new favorite! I love the thoughtful design on the shoulder which I can wear as a normal sweater, or I can pull down and wear it as a off the shoulder one. Because this little extra design effort, my day was made so much easier. Now I don’t need to worry about whether my sweater will get all bunched up or accidentally pulled down way too much when I am holding my coffee, or driving my car. I am thinking I may wear this red sweater to a gathering during the holidays. 😉
