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.

THE BUTTON-DOWN TOP & MIDI SKIRT

Extended Style Notes

Floral Tank Top - Size S

What I love...

·         Perfect length - While you can’t see it in this picture, the shirt is the an ideal length (Front length = 21.75''). Usually when I get button down shirts, everything fits great except for the bottom hem of the shirt which awkwardly bunches and hugs my hips. Thankfully that did not happen with this shirt!

·         Dirt cheap - This floral Ralph Lauren tank top top was such a steal, I got it at Buffalo Exchange for $17 bucks!

What could be better...

·         Slightly tight in chest -  I always find it ironic when my chest is slightly too big for a shirt because that rarely happens to me (living that A cup life)! I usually stick with a cute bralette when I wear this tank.

 

Garment measurements:

Chest = 34’’

Front Length= 21.75’’

Center Back = 24.25’’

Waist = 31’’

 

Midi Skirt - Size S

What I love...

·         A-Line -   Thank goodness midi skirts are still in style because they are so flattering for curvy girls. Gotta love that A Line silhouette! Even though this skirt wasn’t a petite size, it was just the right length.

·         Thrifty - I’ve been shopping on the website Threadflip lately because they have nice, gently-used clothes that aren’t tons of $$$.

What could be better...

·         A little thick - This skirt is double layered so it can be a little warm for the summer, but if you’re in a chilly office then it’s perfect.

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 27.5’’

Center Front = 25.5’’

Center Back = 26’’

 

Shoes: The flatforms are MICHAEL by Michael Kors, and I’m obsessed with how comfortable they are! Flatforms are the only “heels” I’m capable of walking around in NYC for extend period of time.
