If there is one thing I have learned over the years dressing as a petite girl is making my seamstress my bestfriend! I know some get bother about having to take some clothes to get tailor.. you spend money buying these pieces and now you have to spend more money making it to fit your body. I get it. Even though I personally don’t mind the process, but finding clothes made for my body type is a win win! There are so many stores now that have a petite pieces, which makes the process easier. Most may think certain clothes do not fit us, because they are too long, but there is more to that. Along with our short legs, us petite girls also have a small frame. Our torso needs to be part of that equation.
A particular item that can be hard to find for us shorty is jumpsuits and rompers. They don’t fit right around your stomach and who wants to be walking around with a kangaroo pouch? No one! Lucky I have found this print jumpsuit that fits me just right. Prefect in length (as a women who is 4’10, that’s amazing), but most importantly it fits my frame. I bought this jumpsuit 2 years ago and it is one of my most used jumpsuit, since it hugs me all in the right places and actually makes me look taller. Unfortunately this printed jumpsuit isn’t available anymore, but I was able to pick some of my favs for this season, from bold prints, cropped style, and even an all white romper, which I can never resist ;).
Do you struggle with certain fashion pieces?
Do you guys have plans for cinco de Mayo? I won’t be out celebrating and eating at my favorite Mexican restaurant, but we will be hosting a margaritas ladies night at the shop!
Cheers to the weekend,
