I've discovered some new things about myself Readers. 1) Half of my closet consists of cardigans. 2) I ♥ leopard way more than I ever thought I could. 3) All but two pairs of my jeans are of the skinny variety. And finally, 4) Banana Republic is the place to go for a great selection of petite clothing.

Petite Skinny Dark Wash Jean  I want more, maybe in black! These are also available in-store, which is where I got mine.
Beige Lacy Tank: H&M
Nude Pumps: Steve Madden
Assorted Gold Baubles


This ring is from Forever 21, purchased recently. I think it's fascinating for some reason:
On my nails: Sephora by OPI in Personal Shopper


Again, I highly highly recommend the petite cardigan and the petite skinny jeans. The sleeves of the cardi are the perfect length for my short arms. I don't have to roll them up at all (something I almost always have to do with regular sized cardigans). I bought a size medium because that was all they had left. It's a tad bit loose, but I kinda dig that because it just feels so darn cozy.

 The skinny jeans (not to be confused with the ultimate skinnies) have a lot of stretch to them, which I find flattering. They sort of form to fit your body, and the denim is extremely soft. Come to think of it, they almost remind me of leggings. I think petite girls who also have some curves like myself will be very happy with these, as well as petite girls who aren't curvy at all. They are universal.  The length is perfect for heels, but I also tried them on with my TB flats, and they looked equally good. Keep in mind I am 5'2 and 110 pounds. I bought a size 27P. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

  4. I love Banana Republic for their Petite selection as well! You have no idea [well, maybe you do :)] how thrilled I was when I discovered that I can actually fit into a pair of professional (or semi-prof.) pants, dresses, skirts...and i didn't need a seamstress to tailor it for me! :)

  8. Jessica: I really like leopard accessories the best! Shoes, belts...such a cute accent!

    Marie: BR is definitely on the top of my list when I go shopping.

    Natasha: I know! I used to hate getting everything tailored, mainly because of the cost. I would spend 20 dollars on a dress and then 40 on the tailoring! What a pain!

    PearlsAnd Green Tea: Thank you! What a cute blog name BTW!

    Kamani: Thank you =)

    Ashley J: Good, let me know if you end up getting a pair and what you think of the skinnies.
