Jeetly: A UK-Based Petite-Exclusive, Work-Appropriate Collection

Recently, I was contacted by the PR rep for Jeetly, based out of the UK.  This is an online-only, petite-exclusive collection that only launched this past fall.  The collection consists of blouses, skirts and dresses, all appropriate for a moderately conservative office.  I was lucky enough to get a discount to purchase two of the […]

Recent Purchases: Ann Taylor, J.Crew and Arthur Mendonça

Wow, it’s been almost a month since the last DelectablyChic! Closet post!  I’ve been concentrating a lot on the main site’s posts, thus didn’t have much time to take pictures of new outfits that I have purchased over the last few weeks.  I finally was able to take some pictures last week, but didn’t get […]

Should H&M Have a Petite Line?

I saw a Tweet from @hmusa recently about the fact that the plus department in the US is rebranding from Big & Beautiful to the more appropriate H&M+ name.  Sizes this department will carry will range between 14 and 24.  While I knew that H&M had plus sizes, I can’t help but wonder if they’ll […] Continue Reading

NYFW: 1960s Betsey Mania!

With a theme of 1960s London, going into the disco era of the 1970s, Betsey Johnson’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection opens with a short video of girls screaming at who’s presumably The Beatles.  The collection was full of bright colours, miniskirts, floppy hats, chunky sweater dresses and po’boy caps we see a typical Betsey production of […] Continue Reading

Petite Friendliness and Hervé Léger: A Total Yay?

I like much of the collection, especially the pairing of the dresses with tall boots (this style is pretty much all I wear in the winter.  Glad to see that I won’t look out of place next year – lol).  Most of the skirt lengths are above the knee, which means that they’d be right […] Continue Reading

BCBGMaxAzria F/W 2012: Yay or Nay?

So New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week started yesterday, presenting collections for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2012 season.  As with previous seasons, many of the shows were streamed online, including BCBGMaxAzria.  Though I really like the colour blocking, palette and found the designs to be better than past seasons, the skirt lengths, as usual, were really more […] Continue Reading

Beauty of a Woman or How I Came To Accept My Petiteness

I’m shorter than my mother.  This is a rarity, especially for first generation Canadians with immigrant parents.  You’re pretty much expected to be taller than your mom.  When I was a little girl, I expected to be around 5’6″ or 5’7″ – one to two inches TALLER than mom.  Never happened.  I reached my current […] Continue Reading

Houndstooth Ankle Pants from Jacob

They’re surprisingly ankleish on me, even though it’s not a petite size (Jacob does not do petites), especially when tucked into a lose-ish fitting top (as I’m wearing in the pictures).  What do you think of this?   Pants: Jacob Houndstooth Ankle Pants, size 0 – $79 CDN Top: Lucian Matis, size XS Blazer: Femme […] Continue Reading

January Poll Results: Are You A Member of Any Flash Sale Sites?

Last month, we asked you whether you were members of any flash sale sites.  It was kind of surprising to find that more than 41% (41.2%, actually) of you didn’t know what they were, since so many people have been talking about them over the past few months.  Some of you, at 29.4% said that […] Continue Reading
