    Petite Sandal Love

    One of the best moments in life for me is when I walk to the front door to see that the wonderful postman has left a brown boxed package. It is of course, a shipment from my favourite petite shoe store IN THE WORLD… Pretty-Small-Shoes! One of the new petite shoes I got was a pair of ‘Lopez‘ in size 34. I love the style, the strap over the toes and the tie-up laces by the ankles. They are made of really nice soft leather suede and very comfortable to wear. Today was a gorgeous summer Saturday – No better time to wear them! plain navy dress – sunnygirl black…

    Neon + Leather for Petites

    Hello lovelies! Sorry – I know it has been a ridiculously long time since my last blog post. But you ought to know by now, I’m a bit seasonal like that. I have a great run, then I get side-tracked onto other projects. But hey, at least I seem to come back. 🙂 What’s new since September 2012? I’ve hardly gone shopping – Then saved $! There was Christmas and New Year Played by the beach and pool Got more tanned… Gadget-wise – The BF got me an iPad mini (How fitting for a petite? Love!!) OK, so I don’t have a good enough or busy enough schedule to excuse…

    Petite Review – Black Milk Swimsuit

    Yay! So excited to get my Black Milk Clothing swimsuit in the mail. I purchased it during the ‘Sick Puppies’ release. If anyones ever witnessed the Black Milk releases, it’s insane. That count down and all the hype surrounding it just makes me want to whip my plastic card out – which I did! I got this swimsuit with skulls on it. I know, it sounds a little out-there, but it doesn’t have to look gothic. You can brighten it up by introducing colours. I wore it with some red high-waisted pleated shorts and some shimmery light gold flats. The swimsuit fits perfectly for me in a size S (small).…

    Petite Review: Petite Miss Selfridge Blue Maxi

    Some of you may have taken note of my Facebook post regarding a “few Miss Selfridge goodies”. Well, here is one of them (Yay! But sorry it took a while to post) – My petite turquoise maxi dress from Miss Selfridge. Standing at 4″11′, I find it super hard to find a maxi dress with the correct length. If I am lucky enough to find a dress designed to graze the shins of ‘regular sized’ women, I’d get that. But it’s rare to find. Another option is to go to Targets’ kids section and find a simple style maxi dress. One that it not noticeably from the childrens side of the store…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Easy Petite Style, Rachel Bilson Inspired

    I’m not shy about the fact that I love the 5″2 Rachel Bilson, I think her style- the boho chic thing, is a lot of fun. I’m a little jealous I can’t pull off a lot of the stuff she wears. I wish I could wear a long maxi hippie skirt and make it look cool and effortless, but I can’t… I just feel extremely wide wearing it and I feel super short. Ohh well… Maybe I’m wearing the wrong skirts?! I’ll investigate this later… I did stumble upon a pic of Bilson leaving Sirius Radio Stations in NYC-  after her show with Regis & Kelly- wearing a simple white eyelet-holed…

    Back From Outerspace

    Well, not really outerspace, but really Out Of Cyber Space! A few reasons really… One, felt a bit uninspired recently. I think it was because of the move back from London. I felt quite unsettled for the first couple of months. Second, I went on a family trip to the Philippines which was fantastic, but then soon after we all flew back again because my grandmother passed away. Quite sad. And third, I’m starting a little project with my mum. Yay! So now I’m back. One of the things I love about being back in my home town is going for a drive around rediscovering places. I found a lovely…

    Benefits Of Having A Petite Mum

    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…
