    Petite Fashion Challenge # 17: Candy Colorized

    I am a little excited as this is my first time participating in a Petite Fashion Challenge. I still remember when these petite fashion challenges first began, but I never got around to joining in on all the petite fashion fun. So, here’s my first go… The Petite Fashion Challenge this month was hosted by the lovely petite fashionista, SewPetiteGal. The challenge was this: Take a bowl full of colourful candies, close your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces.  Now use those colours (+ a neutral of your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble. My two main colours were light green and purple. I used a minty green blouse and…

    Forever 21 Coral Sweater

    During the week I stepped out and embraced the glorious Queensland winter weather. Clear blue skies, crisp sweet air and sunshine. Outings these days rarely exclude a stop over at my new-found favourite cafe for an extremely worthy cappuccino from Brother. Mmm… It was the first time I wore my Forever 21 sweater out to coffee. This is a size S which I found to be a little big in the shoulders. With this looseness up top, I roll up the sleeves to make it look a little less saggy around the arms- It also helps keep the sleeves in place. I love the white collar printed onto the vibrant…

    Petites I Meet: Lena Update

    I just wanted to show you guys a pic of Lena wearing a dress from her favourite store, OJAY. As you can see it fits her perfectly and although the design is meant for the dress to be sitting perhaps above the knee, it sits nicely below the knee on petite Lena making it an appropriate length for work. Just gorgeous! If you like this dress, you will find similar here. Like the ‘Autumn Leaves Cap Sleeve Dress‘. J.L x

    Petite Coats for An Aussie Winter

    Australia is all behind when it comes to fashion, only because our seasons are half a year behind what seems to be the rest of the world. Not literally, but in terms of fashionable countries Oz is a little behind. When UK and the US are celebrating summer outfits, poor ole’ Australia still has to go through winter. Winter was my favourite when I lived in the UK. It was all about the layers, the coats, the scarfs, the felts fedora’s… the boots! Ah… winter boots from Pretty-Small-Shoes are the best. Anyways, Brisbane winter doesn’t get too cold. It’s currently 17 degrees (or thereabouts) so there’s no need for puffy…

    Petites I Meet: ‘Lena from Sweden’

    INTERVIEW WITH LENA: How tall are you? 5 feet. 150 cm What is the best thing about being petite? People say I’ small and cute, people find me very friendly and not scared of me. What is the worst thing about being petite? Not being able to reach things and not being able to buy clothes and shoes. What is the hardest outfit to find? Definitely pants! I’ve never bought a pair of pants I’ve never had to hem. My mum (who lives in Sweden) would usually hem pants for me or there’s an alterations place in city where I go. I really should learn to hem, as it’s really…

    Petite Review: Black Milk Clothing

    The label, Black Milk,  first got my attention when I saw my friend raving on about her “awesome Black Milk leggings” on Facebook. It became hard to ignore. At first I thought they’d be way too crazy to wear, but the idea of crazy- soon appealed to me. I got my first pair earlier this week and I have already worn them out three times!! Are they ‘petite-friendly‘? I ordered a size Small… Because sadly, I’m no longer an Extra Small :(… (I blame holidays and winter food)… Plus, I don’t like it when elastic on the hips are so tight it reveals my muffin-top- Haha. The measurements of these…

    Petite Peplum, Lady Gaga-Style

    When it comes to all sorts of trends you can always rely on petite super-celeb, Lady Gaga, to take it a step further. Or a million steps. Take for example in this case, the ‘peplum’. Our petite style queen, Lady Gaga, wears the exaggerated shoulders with a wide-fanned-out peplum detail top – not to mention she gets away with wearing no pants, like, all the time! (when would it be OK for me??) – while all us regular fashionistas would opt for something a little more subtle, pretty and wearable – Like the petite peplum skirt on Asos. Although I wouldn’t spend hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on a top that would…

    Petite Holiday Outfit

    Holiday’s are the best, aren’t they? But it’s choosing the outfits to pack that can be a struggle. It’s comforting to know in some cases you can always buy the outfits at your holiday destination- I know it’s cheeky but sometimes I can’t help myself.  Hehehe. First thing to think about I guess would be, what are you packing for? In my case I packed for a tropical summer holiday to Leyte, Cebu and Boracay in the Philippines. Oh and did we holiday! When I was in Cebu I did a little bit of shopping at the Ayala mall and made a visit to Topshop! I went straight to the…

    7/8 Pants

    I used to hate shopping for office work pants. too long. too wide. saggy butt. all around terrible fit. The list goes on and you know it… Thankfully I’ve discovered 7/8th length pants, which are in trend for taller ladies. Oh what a saviour! Although they’re meant to end 7/8th of the way down my legs, they fit nicely by my ankles and that’s all I care about. If you live in Australia and need a good place to buy work pants to fit petites, hit up Portmans Pant Bar.  Portmans is Australia’s answer to the UK’s Dorothy Perkins high st store, minus a petite range. So for the meantime, a…

Where? I’m not too sure to be honest. Just out and about and discovering things, like, yellow! Seems to be the first colour I look at lately. I never used to give yellow a go. It has a bit to do with my worries of it looking bad on my skin tone. But, with the right hue of yellow, it can look very darling indeed. I find if I am more tanned this time of year (Aussie summer!!…
