REFORMATION WINTER COLLECTION REVIEW

Reformation is a brand that can be very hit or miss me. Sometimes styles fit very well and other times don’t seem to be cut for my body. Over the past couple times I’ve shopped, I find that I have the best luck with their dresses and tops. Recently I had the chance to visit their store and check out their latest pieces - keep reading for the full reviews of everything I tried on.

EXPRESS PETITES REVIEW

I’m excited to share this review because I’ve been wanting to check out more items from Express’ petite line ever since trying out their coats last Fall. It’s definitely been a while since I’ve shopped at Express. Honestly, I probably haven’t stepped foot in one since middle or high school. Was anyone else completely obsessed with their cami tank tops and t-shirts back in the day? While Express isn’t my go-to store, I’m always game to check out a brand that offers petite sizes.

REDENIM PERSONAL SHOPPING REVIEW

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m always on the hunt for denim. While I’ve managed to find some reliable brands for me like Levi’s and Everlane, I’m always open to trying new brands. One company I recently found through Instagram is called Redenim, which is dedicated to helping women find high-quality, premium denim that fits them. So I decided to give them a try :)

EVERLANE REVIEW - FALL ITEMS!

This fall Everlane has had a bunch of new product releases so I decided to go check them out and see which ones were the most petite friendly. Out of all their new releases I have to say their new bodysuits are my favorite! They are so incredibly soft and comfortable. Keep on reading to see all the items I tried on.

REFORMATION SWEATERS REVIEW

When I went to the Reformation store recently, much to my surprise I found out that they have sweaters. Unfortunately, they don’t carry petite sizes yet for sweaters. However, I did find that some of their sweaters worked for my short torso. Sharing all my thoughts on the styles I tried on below and crossing my fingers they’ll add petites at some point too.

WHERE TO FIND THE COMFIEST, PETITE-FRIENDLY LOUNGE PANTS

Recently one of my readers asked where to buy petite lounge pants. I have to admit it’s not a category I had shopped for in a while so I decided to order styles from some of my go-to petite brands like Old Navy and Athleta. I also tried out some lounge pants from L.L. Bean, which I completely forgot carries petite sizes. Keep reading all the way to the end because there’s a wild card option listed :)

REFORMATION FALL PETITES REVIEW

Over the past few years, Reformation has been on again off again with their petites line. Happy to see they are on again for the time being. Being able to buy petite sizes, means that you can actually find pants and midi length dresses/skirts that are the proper length. In this post, I’m reviewing their fall petite styles as well as a few petite-friendly tops from their main line.

PETITE BRANDS YOU'VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF

Does anyone else ever get in a shopping rut? Lately, I’ve been wondering where else to shop for petite-clothing. Generally I stick to the same brands that have worked for me in the past, but lately I haven’t been feeling as excited when I’ve gone shopping or looked online.

So I decided to order from new brands I had never tried before to see if there was anything good out there I was missing out on. The four brands that I ordered from were: Fashion Union, Petite Studio NYC, Monteau and Love Scarlett.

EVERLANE AUTHENTIC STRETCH DENIM REVIEW

After hearing rave reviews from my sister about Everlane’s Authentic Stretch denim, I decided to head to their store and try it on for myself. As someone who generally has a hard time finding jeans that fit, I was overall pretty impressed by their products. In addition to their Authentic Stretch jeans, Everlane also has their original denim line they launched prior to Authentic Stretch. Between the two lines, I was definitely a bigger fan of their Authentic Stretch styles because they fit me better in the waist. Sharing my thoughts below on a few of the styles!

MY FIRST STITCH FIX BOX!

I’ve always wanted to try out Stitch Fix and recently decided to give them a try. Stitch Fix is definitely a nice alternative to shopping at stores in NYC, which can always a little bit crazy. (Those of you who live here know, going to Zara at 2pm on Saturday is pretty much always a bad idea because the dressing room lines are out of control!)

When I signed up for Stitch Fix, the first step in the process was filling out a style quiz to share the clothing sizes I generally wear and my style preferences. Definitely make sure you carve out some time to do the quiz portion because it’s probably took me about 15 minutes. Once I completed quiz, all I had to do was schedule my “fix” frequency. Not gonna lie, I have ton of clothes in my closet right now so I picked the quarterly frequency for the time being. However, I can still change the frequency or cancel whenever I want.

My box arrived about 2 weeks after scheduling the quiz. (So if you’re on a time crunch, this might not be the best option for you.) I received 5 items in my box out of which I legitimately liked 3 of them. However, I knew the FIT test would be the real determining factor in terms of what I ended up keeping.
