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

Topshop Sleeveless Jacket - Size 4 Petite

What I loved…

  • Perfectly proportioned - When it comes to buying jackets I usually try to buy a petite size because they generally fit better from a length perspective. Since this jacket is an over-sized style I’m glad that it was available in petites otherwise it would have overwhelmed my frame. (Center back = 32’’)
  • An easy outfit -  I love how dressed up this jacket can make a simple black tank top and leggings look. It makes getting dressed for work easy!

 

Garment measurements:

Center back = 32’’

Chest = 19’’

Waist = 20’’

Across shoulder = 14’’

 

Gap Leggings - Size S

What I loved…

  • Just the right length - Even though these leggings aren’t a petite size, the length of these leggings is actually perfect and I didn't have to "fake hem" them by rolling under the excess fabric. (Inseam = 27.25’’)
  • Side zippers -  I love that these leggings have zippers at the sides of the leg openings. It makes them so much easier to put on and take off.

What could be better...

  • Higher rise - I like to have my leggings to sit slightly below my natural waist so I don’t have to worry about them sliding down during the day. I would love them to be slightly higher rise about 10’’. (Actual rise = 9.5’’)

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 28’’

Front rise = 9.5’’

Inseam = 27.25’’

 

H&M Ribbed Knit Tank Top - I posted about this top previously and love how versatile it is. It’s great as a layering piece or on its own.

What I loved…

  • Stretchy - So glad knits are taking this season by storm because it means I get to wear ultra-stretchy garments that are comfy and forgiving!
  • Armholes -  The armholes on this tank are the perfect size, so this top isn’t too revealing from a side-boob perspective. (Armhole opening = 10”).

What could be better…

  • A little long -  This ribbed tank is a little long on me if I don’t tuck it into my pants or skirt. Since I tuck in my shirts a lot, it’s fine with me that it’s a little long! (Center front measurement = 22”)

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 22’’

Center back = 23’’

Bust = 13.5’’ (27” total)

Turtleneck height = 2.5”

Turtleneck width (relaxed) = 6.75”

Armhole = 10”

 

Shoes - I’ve never bought oxfords before so I was really excited when I got these. I love black/white combo and tiny silver studs. So chic!
