I’m going to do something different this session. Rather than at Shorty Stories, my Petite Fashion Challenge is being posted at DelectablyChic!, a site that focuses on general style, rather than something that is height/petite-specific.

Shopping in London, Part Two: Harrods

During my trip to London, I also got a chance to spend some time exploring the pricier stores, including Harrods.  Yes, Harrods is one place you should visit, even if you don’t purchase anything (as I’ve said in an earlier post, it’s better to buy in the US or Canada for many North American brands).  […]
