Laundry by Design dress in petite. Yes!

23 Feb

This cute little cotton dress in petite size is from Laundry by Design and available at Nordstrom. Details: “‘It’s semi-fitting at bust and easy-fitting at hip. A full shift dress, from the smocked bodice and grosgrain ribbon trim to two kinds of eyelet: one bold and peekaboo, the other stippled with delicate vertical lines. Four dainty buttons detail the placket, and a ribbon-banded hem finishes the look.”

This dress is totally cute and perfect for Spring or Summer! 😉

You can probably find a dress similar to this one at Forever 21 but it’s great that a clothing line from Laundry makes apparel in petite sizes don’t cha think?! 🙂

The Office – Switch Up to Dresses!

12 Jan

Wearing pants to work everyday gets boring. How about switching up to dresses? Dresses in the office are a rare sighting when most women prefer to wear skirts instead. Also finding the right dress isn’t always easy. If it’s too long or loose, you’ll run the risk of looking frumpy. Luckily a few major brands carry them in Petite. A look that saids comfort and style together at once. 😉

The Peruvian Connection in Petite

2 Dec

Never heard of Peruvian Connection? Neither had I until now. It all started in 1976 by mother and daughter (Biddy/Annie). While she was doing anthropology research in Peru, Annie purchased a sweater for her mother’s upcoming 50th birthday and also bought a sweater coat made with alpaca yarn, trimmed with long haired fur of the same animal. Biddy and her friends must have fell in love with it so much that mother/daughter started importing a small range of sweater styles from Peru. And that is how the Peruvian Connection was born!
Check out some of the clothes that they carry in PETITE. Pricey but VERY nice(y)! 🙂 There is free shipping on orders over $200. Valid from 11/16/07-12/7/07.
