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

Old Navy Sweater - Size S

What I loved…

  • V-Neckline -  As a girl with a small bust, I usually opt for V-necklines because they accentuate what I got (V-neck drop = 6.75’’).
  • Just the right length - Old Navy doesn’t sell petite sizes in their store. They only offer them online so I just bought this sweater in a regular size. To my surprise and delight, the length was perfect for me (Center front = 23.5’’).
  • Not too snug on the hips - This sweater lies nicely on my hips. It also helps that there are slits on the sides of the sweater that make it fit more comfortably around my hips  (Seat = 19). 

What could be better…

  • Sleeves are slightly too long - Since this sweater is not a petite size, I found that the sleeves were a little long on me (Sleeve length = 29.5’’).

 

Garment measurements:

Center front  = 23.5’’

Center back = 24.5’’

Seat = 19.87’’

Sleeve length = 29.5’’

V-neck drop = 6.75’’

 

LRL Faux Leather Leggings - Size 6 Petite

What I loved…

  • Just the right length -  I'm glad these leggings came in a petite size so they weren't too long and I didn’t have to tuck under the extra fabric. (Inseam = 26.75’’)
  • Leather panels on front -  I like that these leggings were not leather all over because it made me feel more comfortable wearing them. All over leather pants are still a little much for me. 

What could be better…

  • Fit -  Overall the fit of these leggings was not my favorite, but I have been looking for faux leather leggings all season at LOFT and Ann Taylor and have had a hard time finding ones that were an exceptional fit. The main reason I bought these leggings from LRL is because they were an amazing deal only $32 (vs orig. $125).
  • Waist -  I wish the waistband on these leggings was more secure because they have tendency to slide down when you walk.
  • Higher rise -  I wish these leggings were higher rise so the waistband would stay in place around my hips. (Front rise = 8.5’’).

 

Garment measurements:

Inseam = 26.75''

Front rise = 8.5''

Waist = 30.5''
