    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…

    Thigh Splits + Mimco Yellow

    My boyfriends car had a broken air compressor. We had no air con in the house and it’s swelteringly hot here in the Southern Hemisphere. So what to do on hot summer days? Lay under a tree with a good book or magazine and enjoy the breeze by the river banks. That is exactly what I did on this particular day at New Farm Park. Followed up by some lovely iced coffees on James St and randomly bumping into friends. On hot days… Must. Wear. Breathable. Cotton. I’m wearing a loose plain lilac tank tucked into a thigh-high split black skirt – Extra breathable! I’ve accessorised with a white vintage…

    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 Style Adventures: One LBD, Two Styles

    It starts with the basics. One little black dress. I added a pair of tights (because it was a little chilly) and some small sized black wedge ankle boots from Pretty-Small-Shoes.

    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…

    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…

    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…

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!!…

    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…
