Hi.

I'm Kristin! A short & curvy girl seeking clothes that fit. Originally from the South, I'm now taking on NYC! My blog is dedicated to providing style and fit guides for petite-pear shaped women.

Extended Style Notes

LOFT Turtleneck Cropped Sweater - Size XXSP - When I tried on this sweater for size I could tell that it's supposed to be a boxy style. Therefore, I decided to try going down a couple of sizes so it wouldn’t look too bulky on me. XXSP is not my normal size by any means, but because this sweater is very stretchy and oversized so I was able to scale down. See garment measurements below.

What I loved…

  • Cropped length - Have I mentioned that I like cropped length tops? You guys probably know all too well at this point. Cropped length tops are perfect for my short torso! (Center front = 18’’)
  • Color - Love how popular the wine/burgundy color is this fall. Can’t get enough!

What could be better…

  • Size scale - As I mentioned above, I had to go down a couple of sizes before I found the size that fit the best. Not the end of the world, but figuring out what size took a little more time than usual because of the trial and error process involved.

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 18’’

Chest = 18’’ (36’’ total)

Bottom opening = 19’’

Turtleneck height = 1.5’’

Turtleneck width (relaxed) = 5.25’’


AEO Super Stretch High-Rise Jegging - In my previous post this week, I shared how much I love American Eagle’s denim this fall. While I don’t normally shop here, my friend told me their jeans were amazing for curvy girls so I decided to give it a chance. I fell in love with these jeans and AEO is my new favorite go-to place for jeans!

What I loved…

  • High-waisted -  All summer I told you guys how much I love high-waisted shorts so I was excited when I found these high-waisted jeggings at American Eagle!
  • Stretchy - I’m not sure why I have never bought jeggings before now. I think I’ve been converted because they are so incredibly comfortable! (Fabrication: 65% Cotton, 23% Rayon, 11% Polyester, 1% Spandex)
  • Inseam length - Love that American Eagle offers “Short” length jeans (Inseam = 27.25’’)! Petite girls look no further for jeans!

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 27.5’’

Hip = 37’’

Front rise = 10.25’’

Inseam = 27.25’’


Shoes - The black/beige two-tone effect of the shoes is so unique!
