As I’ve mentioned before, I’m pretty happy to be petite and there’s another small lady in my life who experiences the joys of petiteness… my mum (4’11” too!). She’s a great friend who no matter what is always there for me. Yeah yeah… I know… Lucky me, huh! 🙂 But besides the obvious gloriousness of mother-daughter relationships she also shares something special with me, the need for petite fashion!
From time to time I raid her closet for clothes/shoes/bags I can borrow. I also find her taking stuff from my closet too hehe. Yesterday I found shoes I’ve sent her as presents over the last two years. She’s holidaying overseas at the moment, so yesterday I took a pair out to enjoy the sunshine, these are Tribeca Black from Pretty-Small-Shoes. I’d been staring at them in the shoe closet for a while, so finally on my feet they went. They’re very comfortable and the super long laces make my feet feel very supportive. Also the leather is a very soft cow leather on the outside and soft pig leather in the inside. The leggings, ‘Leopard Pattern Leggings‘, I’m wearing are also from Pretty-Small-Shoes. I think they pretty awesome with bits of glitter in the sun 🙂
The benefits of having a petite mum according to me:
- Her collection of old petite clothes
- Her small little shoe collection
- We trade clothes/shoes
- We share clothes/shoes
- People think we are sisters (lol)
- Neither of us feel small next to each other
- We share foot stools at home for cupboard reaching purposes
- We shop in the same area
- We understand petite fitting
- Hugging is easy
- I love her!
