Petite Fitting Room Diary

 

Petite Fitting Room

Last weekend I went to my local shopping mall to check out what’s in store this season. I always pass Coast store but never go inside. Don’t what was stopping me all this while. I always would go to my usual stores Topshop, Zara, Next, Mango and Primark. However there was this navy blue cami top on the shop window which caught my attention so I decided to take the leap and go inside. I was trying to pick up the navy blue cami top but the hanger was quite high up for me. This is a common problem for us petite girls is in it? Why are hangers put so high up anyway there was a lovely petite shop assistant who tried to help me saying she could help just because she is used to the rails and not that she was taller than me :P. However I managed to pick up the cami top myself somehow after few attempts. The shop assistant lady was very nice as she took the items from my hand and placed it the fitting room for me to carry on browsing. I was very impressed with their service.

After browsing around I tried on the navy blue cami top with a black cover up and a black jacket. I quite liked the top with the cover up as opposed to the black jacket.  The jacket fit me well everywhere except for sleeves. The sleeves length was bit long for me as you can see in the picture. I loved the colour of the cami top. The top is not from the petite section. The top is a bit long for us petites but I loved it, it could be worn as a dress or with skinny jeans as I did. You could also pair it with tights/leggings and high heels, it would look fab. The reason I wore a cover up is that I have gained weight and I don’t like showing off my arms. I would love to wear the cami top without any cover up in summer once I have lost some weight. Talking of weight have you read my post on weightloss challenge? If you are trying to lose some weight and need a partner in crime feel free to get in touch with me. Drop a comment below the post or tweet me. I would love to connect with you ladies. I am very delighted to have gone to Coast as I quite like their collection. I feel their clothing line suits my petite style. They do have petite range but only for dresses.
The blue cami top( Size 8)  I tried, is priced £35 which I think is a good price and it was good quality fabric. The cover up( size XS)  is priced £45 which I feel is a bit pricey. The jacket( size 8) is £75. I didn’t purchase any of the items at the moment but I am surely going to buy the cami top soon( as soon as it’s pay day).
Do you go to Coast? Do you like their collection?  Do let me know. You can stay connected with me on BloglovinTwitter,Facebook and Instagram.

Petite Pick Of The Day: My Wishlist

Petite Pick Of The Day
Hi Everyone! Today’s Petite Pick Of The Day is a combination of pink and black pairings. Both these colours are my favourite and I have been trying to find a pink petite playsuit since ages. If you are petite and curvy( have a tummy) like me I would suggest trying playsuits, you will thank me. It’s the best discovery I have ever made. I am now a playsuit convert and have a few of these in my closet. Playsuit camouflages tummy quite well and looks like a dress.When it comes to pink I often think, how can I pair it up so that it looks elegant, classy and chic instead looking pretty and cute. I am so tired of being called cute, I am sure you petite ladies will agree with me. We petite girls want to be called elegant, classy, sexy, sassy anything but cute;we have had enough of the word ‘cute’. I paired this pink playsuit with black shoes, black bag and black accessories giving it a classy look.
I am a huge fan of Audrey Hepburn and love her lcassy, elegant and chic style. I adore the elegance and poise she embodied.If you are trying to achieve a classy look remember too much of accessories won’t go down well. If you are wearing a statement necklace then stick to a stud earring and perhaps leave out the bracelet or chunky watch. For this look I chose a black bag which is one of my favourite from Michael Kors and is on my wish list to buy soon. I went for black heel sandal and black sunglasses to complete the look. One more tip for petite girls is to wear solid colours it gives an illusion of height. I would suggest trying it out and seeing it for yourself.

 

The playsuit is from Miss Selfridges, sandals from Aiva & Aiden, bag from Michael Kors, stud earrings from overstock.com and lastly the necklace is from John Lewis. You can click on the individual images below the main image to check out the price of the products.

Snapped in Ilam Park: Petite Style Diary

Happy Wednesday ladies!  2 weeks ago I went to Peak District. We went on a long drive, it was quite windy so I didn’t go hiking but we went to visit Ilam Park . It’s a beautiful country park with stately building, well manicured Italian garden, picturesque view. I would recommend going there if you live in England. It was a sudden plan so I paired my favourite Topshop jeans with sleeveless blouse and blazer. The look is effortless and comfortable. I have also posted some beautiful photos of Ilam Park for you guys to enjoy.

What I Wore TO London Fashion Weekend: Petite Edit

Hello Ladies,

Happy Friday! London Fashion was back in February and all the buzz around it has faded away now. I was browsing my media library and I wanted to share with you lot, what I wore to London Fashion Weekend.

Petite Fashion

 

Coat: Benetton Paris

Scarf: H&M Paris

Bag:  Benetton Paris

Shoes: Thanks to Petite Shoe Boutique.

It was really cold here so I decided to wear my petite coat( I wore a petite dress from Topshop [under the coat]) and petite shoes.  I love thecoat, I bought this from Benetton Paris while I was there for my birthday two years back. It fits me perfectly and falls just above my knee, what a blessing. I am sure you petite ladies would know what I am talking about. For us petites, a coat that falls just above the knee is a rare reality. I love this coat, most of my coats are from Paris. Paris is great place to shop for elegant clothes, you can also find petite clothing if you are searching well. My shoes are from Petite Shoes Boutique, do check them out if you have petite feet.

I went to London Fashion Weekend with my bloggy friends Jodie and Vicki, it was great to catch up with them. We attended the trend catwalk show and a session about blogging by remotely fashion blog. The talk was really inspiring for us bloggers. We also went to the marketplace designer outlets to check out their collection. It was a great day and I really enjoyed it.

Hope you liked my coat.

At the event, Solillas showcased their new SS14 collection designed for women, men and kids. Their range is colourful and fun which draws inspiration from the bohemian Balearic lifestyle. Their new Balearic sandal collection is also stocked at Office stores ( UK footwear brand). Every pair of Solillas sandal is handmade in the small Menorcan town of Ferreries with highest quality materials supporting traditional craftsmanship skills and the local economy. The leather for Solillas is sourced from Spain and Italy, making sure only the finest quality ingredients are used.  Solillas have also teamed up with great Balearic designers, artists and illustrators to produce their much awaited women’s clothing range. The event also marked the launch of their women’s clothing range along with live hand painting of a special edition of Solillas sandals by Emma Charlton who is a body painter based in Ibiza. I absolutely loved the sandals exclusively hand painted by Emma and they are among my favourite sandals.

To be honest I am not huge fan of sandals but the sandals from Solillas have a good shape, apt for people who don’t want to show their toe nails too much like me. The sandals for women are priced between £44 to £52. You can have a look at their website for the full range. If you like to try out stuff before buying and do not prefer online shopping , then there is good news for you. l is resident at Boxpark Mall for few months now, so you can now try out the sandals before your purchase.

The starting size of Solillas sandal for women is 36 ( UK 3). I would suggest all you ladies to go and check out Solillas range, you will not be disappointed.

Out and About: Spaghetti Top & Blazer

Petite Fashion BloggersBlazer: Boohoo.com

  Spaghetti top: Primark

Shoes: Barratts

How are you ladies? Hope you are doing well. Last week we managed to get some sunshine here in the UK so we (me and my husband) headed towards the country side. I love going on a drive to the country side and enjoying greenery. I am quite lucky living in UK we have beautiful countryside to enjoy. Last weekend we headed to White Horse Hill in Uffington,Oxfordshire. White Horse Hill is home to mysterious chalk hill figure from the bronze age and is internationally renowned scenic site. The area is of outstanding beauty and White Horse can be seen spreading miles across the lush green valley. It’s an ideal location for hike, if you are a beginner and want to go hiking do visit this place. I love hiking however I didn’t venture out hiking that day as it was quite windy. Be prepared to take your camera as you will get the opportunity take photos of scenic landscape.  The hills are ideal for kite flying. So if you wanted to fly and kite with young children and were searching for a place do check out this place.

I learnt about the White Horse Hills on the National Trust website while I was browsing the internet sitting on the passenger seat. We were out on the road and I was trying to find a place to go. I am impulsive and just love going on road trips. Many a times I have decided where to go while we are already in the car. I love being spontaneous. Are you spontaneous? Do just head out without planning ahead of time.

For the drive I chose to wear a black Spaghetti top pairing it with a nude blazer. I love comfortable clothes that’s why I always stick to my good old pair of jeans. I experiment with tops, blazers and blouses. One tip from me would be to have a few pair of  spaghetti tops. You can pair different tops with the same blazer giving your outfit a new look without having to bust your wallet. Spaghetti tops can be found for a fiver(£5) at Primark or you can also check out supermarket clothing sections. Hope you ladies, found my tip helpful.

Do you have a tip that you want to share. Please share it with us on the comments section.

Until next time stay elegantly fashionable xx
