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

Zara Gingham Print Peplum Top - Size S

What I loved...

  • Peplum - It’s been awhile since I’ve bought a peplum top, but it’s one of go-to silhouettes because it’s so easy to wear.

  • High neckline - The neckline makes this top look very polished and I also love it because it shows off my shoulders/upper body. As I’ve written on my blog previously, a high neckline is great for pears because it highlights the smallness of the upper body relative to our curvy hips.

  • Print - Gingham has been everywhere this season! It’s a fun print that adds excitement to your outfit without being too over the top.

 

Seriously, no complaints about this top - it’s great! Beware though - do not put it in the dryer because I did and mine shrank a little bit :( Also didn’t measure it until after washing/drying it so these measurements are smaller than when I bought it!

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 18.25''

Bust= 31''

Waist = 30''

Center back = 12''

 

 

American Eagle Hi Rise Jeggings - Size 6 Short

What I loved…

  • High Rise - By now I’m sure you all know how much I love high rise pants! Since I have a pear-shaped figure and my waist is much narrower than my hips, usually once I find a pair of jeans that fits my hips/butt then they are too big in the waist. Wearing high rise jeans totally solves that problem that I normally encounter with mid/low rise jeans because they sit snuggly on my waist and don’t slide down.

What could be better…

  • Color - I would love the jeans even more if they were a darker shade of black. They have a more faded look to them than I would like, but the fit is amazIng so I bought them.

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 27.5’’

Front Rise = 10’’

Inseam = 27’’
