Petite Sizes: Is it Getting Better?

I’d say, to a certain extent, yes.  Most major brands that carry petites have launched their spring looks, and while many of the pieces still lean towards office-friendly, the choices are growing, sometimes with almost as much variety as regular sizes.  But, it’s not quite there…yet.  Sometimes, certain looks aren’t available in petites at all […]

Casual Dresses and Skirts for Warm Weather Wear

I don’t know about you, but for me, warm weather usually means spending more time wearing casual dresses and skirts.  I have an obsession with BCBG’s jersey dresses – I have some that date back to 2003 or so – but of course, BCBG isn’t the only line I wear during the summer.  Here are […]
