On 14th March I hosted the second edition of Petite Fashion Week Networking Event in East London. Petite Fashion Week is first of its kind in supporting the Petite Fashion industry and bringing together petite designers/retailers, bloggers and consumers under the same roof. We celebrate Petite Women & Petite Fashion.

The first  edition of Petite Fashion Week took place from 1st to 5th October 2013, which marked the beginning of a  global petite community and provided petite fashion bloggers around the world a platform to address petite girl’s pain points. Petite Fashion Week aims to help upcoming Petite retailers/designers to reach petite consumers globally. After the phenomenal success we also hosted networking events on 14th March in Miami and Dallas.

We had a great turnout at the London event this year and had great Petite retailers like Jeetly Petite, Ego Shoes, Petite Shoe Boutique and The Clothes Lady who showcased their products at the event. We had other retailers like My Haart Beeding, Lipsplash, Biteable Beatique showcasing their products to our guests. Nice Nails Baby provided free nail services to our guests. The giveaway gifts were sponsored by Kukke and Prairie charms. The 16th Bar Petite Women’s Wear provided $150 gift cards to our guests in London, Miami and Dallas.

We had great speakers like Jess Jeetly of Jeetly Petite, Denise Estcourt, Aga Moodley, Rebecca Goodyear speaking at the event about petite fashion and beauty.

For the event I chose to wear Topshop Petite blue shift dress with Shoes from Petite Shoe Boutique and my necklace was from Forever 21.

Petite Blogger

Image credit:James Lyon

Catwalk4change was a fashion show with difference. It showcased mature models and UK bloggers of different height, shape and ethnicity to promote multiculturalism, ethnic diversity, and positive image. The event took place at Water Lilly on 6th September, last year. All funds raised from ticket sales were donated to mental health charity MIND and cancer

I was invited to participate in the blogger fashion show. When I got the invite I was thrilled that I would represent petite women and contribute to the charity at the same time. On the day Guest enjoyed upbeat fashion show hosted by British Actress, Charlotte Avery, paired by pop legend Stacey Jackson. The event was supported by some sought after UK celebrities such as Alex Reid, Charlie Sims, Denise Walsh, Layla Anna-Lee,Lynda Bellingham, Jane Goldman and Sian Lloyd.The show also caught special attention of CEO of the British Fashion Council, Caroline Rush, who was fully supportive of the cause and was excited to see the impact it made and the issues it raised.

I was extremely pleased by the support and turnout on the day. I was showcasing African prints from two designers. The interesting part of the blogger show was each of us were wearing clothes from different ethnic backgrounds. The Africa girls were wearing Indian clothes, Asian girls were wearing western outfits. It was interesting showcase of fashion from different countries and ethnicity.

The lovely Georgina from Forks and Brushes and the designer I was wearing ( Eldimaa Fashion) took a video clipping of me walking the runway. Enjoy the video below and do let me know your thoughts.

Embracing Floral Print Zara Blouse


floral top

Blouse: Zara, UK 8

   Jeans: Topshop Petite, UK 10

Shoes: Barratt, UK 3

Happy Monday Everyone!

Since florals have been big this season I thought of wearing a floral top with my usual jeans. I love bright colours and floral prints. Most of my floral print blouses are from Zara even though they don’t have a petite section their size 8 does fit me quite well. I the feel the yellow/orange print compliments my skin tone quite well. What do you think ladies? If some of you are not too much into colours or getting scared that wearing a floral print would eat you up. Here’s my tip for us petite ladies, go for small prints as they look perfect and don’t overwhelm our petite frame. Experiment with different colours and find the one that compliments your skin tone. If you are buying online I would suggest to first go to your nearest mall and try different colours first before ordering something online. Often the colours look different on a computer screen.

Hope you find my above tips helpful. Coming back to the outfit, I love wearing jeans so I paired this up with bright floral top. I was going out for brunch so this was perfect for me.

Do you ladies shop in Zara? How do you find Zara?

SS14 Petite Fashion Trend: Floral

Hi Ladies,

I went to London Fashion Weekend back in February and one of the key trends for spring summer 2014 is Flower Power. Since I am a petite girl I try to buy clothes from Petite section of retailers. Fit and height of petite clothing is very important for us petites. So I have done some research and created a selection of floral tops from petite ranges of different retailers. You can find the retailer information below the image.

Flower Power Trend for Petites

My personal  favourites from the selection is the Dorothy Perkins t shirt and vest. I absolutely love floral prints and  it has been the key trend in London and Paris Fashion Week this year. I am a big supporter of retailers with petite range and I feel there is need for more retailers to cater to the petite clothing market especially here in the UK.
Do let me know ladies what are your thoughts? I love hearing from you.
Hope you guys enjoyed the post.

Petite Style :Walking in the woods



Hello Everyone! Apologies for not being able to post regularly as I promised. The last few weeks went in preparation for Petite Fashion Week event in London, Miami and Dallas. I will soon put up pictures on the blog for you ladies to enjoy. It was a great turn out and hope all you petite ladies will join us for the next one.

The weather has been kind here in the U.K  for few days now so I headed for a walk in the woods last weekend. I love walking outdoors especially mountain side. There are few nice woodlands around where I live, so I headed  for a walk to enjoy the greenery. When I was deciding what to wear for the walk, I was looking a for comfortable jeans, short jacket and wedge sneakers. Since I am petite I always wear heels, so the wedge sneakers are a great option for us petite ladies.



Jacket:Zara,Top:Primark, Jeans:Topshop, Sneakers:Online shop(similar here)

My petite clothing for the walk was from Topshop, Zara and Primark. Zara however doesn’t do petite range but I love their clothes and try to intelligently find items that would fit my petite frame. Topshop has a great range of petite clothing. So ladies, I would definitely suggest to check them if you haven’t yet.

Hope you enjoyed the post and do leave your feedback.

Stay elegantly fashionable!

Topshop Petite Jeans & Crop Top teamed up with Winter Coat

Hello everyone!

Apologies for not posting regularly for the last couple of months. As you all know, I founded Petite Fashion Week which took up most of my time and also I went away for my destination wedding. I do promise to post regularly from now on and keep you lovely ladies informed of all things petite and my personal style.

newJeans: Topshop Petite

Top:Topshop Petite

Dress: Lilybridal

Long Necklace: Accessorize

I bought this petite jeans and crop top from Topshop and I am quite happy with my purchase. The jeans length is quite good however it’s not perfect as I am just 5 feet. The top fits perfectly well and I am in love with the colour. I feel it complements my complexion very well. The top goes very well with the blue jeans as well. I teamed up this outfit with a Benetton Coat which I bought from Paris. It fits perfectly and sits above the knees which is a bonus! I am sure all you petite girls agree with me how difficult is to get a coat that fits well on our petite frame. I did carry my usual tote black bag but I also experimented the look with a small black clutch bag. Both bags matched very well with this out fit.

 Bag: Bennetton, Paris

Shoes: Barratt UK Size 3

silver prom gown

Clutch Bag: Accessorize

I combined a quite a few colours for this look, which worked to my favour. My shoes for this look is UK size 3 black court shoes from Barratts.

All the clothes in this look are from petite section of different retailers. I do tend to buy clothes from petite sections, as being petite it’s absolutely imporant to wear clothes that have good fiiting.

I hope you ladies liked the outfit post. Do leave your comments as I love to hear from you guys.

Presenting the “High Fashion society” 4th of July Event

Few weeks back, I received an invitation from Lucy Dartford PR to attend High Fashion society “4th of July” event. High Fashion society is a member only club offering vintage designer fashion goods. They offer a range of services like buying and selling of authentic pre-loved designer wear, personal shopping, personal styling, events dressing and fashion parties for adults and teenagers. The great news is they offer a money back guarantee to ensure the authenticity of all luxury goods.

When I saw the invite, it looked very interesting. The event would showcase vintage high-end designer goods, with hair&make-up makeovers and vintage photo-shoot. I got really excited and made my way to the event after work on 4th of July. As soon as I entered the venue, I received a warm welcome with a VIP wristband. It made me feel so special :).

We have been blessed with some warm weather in London for few weeks now, since it was quite hot I first treated myself with a glass of champagne and then took a tour of the venue.  The event was on split levels. The 4th of July theme was beautifully incorporated in the decor.  The first level had the hair&makeup team with a photo shoot area. The lower level had the vintage designer items on display and food area. The food served, was very American comprising of burgers, fries, pretzels, doughnuts and cupcakes to go with the theme.  I indulged in some burgers and cupcakes. They were delicious; it was hard to control myself.

I fell in love with a vintage necklace and a green evening gown on display (picture below), from the collection. During the event, I also got the opportunity to get a makeover. Timothy David did my hair makeover. It was amazing; I was completely transformed and loved it. He is an exceptional creative hair artist. I would recommend all you ladies to check him out if you are looking for a mesmerising look. My makeup was done by the versatile Justyna Dobrowolska, who accentuated my eyes and coloured my lips red. I was bit wary of red lips but she chose the perfect colour to suit my complexion. She was very kind and gave me few great make-ups tips. I absolutely loved her work and would recommend checking her out.











At the event I was thrilled to meet the founder of High fashion society Yoanna Hanchard ( the girl in yellow dress in the picture below) and her mum. Both of them were so nice, friendly and welcoming. At the end of event, I received a goody bag with great hair and beauty stuff.


I thoroughly enjoyed the event and can say it was one of the best events I have ever attended. Lot of hard work and thinking went in, to make sure the guests have a great experience.

I would love to get some feedback from you ladies, do comment on the post. Thanks for reading.

Review: Jeetly Petite Black Peplum Top


Jeetly Petite Chloe Black Peplum Top, size 8 -::- Next petite grey skirt, UK size 8 -::-Baratt black stiletto heels in UK size 3

Jeetly Petite offered* me to send a garment of my choice for review from their selection. I took the opportunity to try out the Chloe Petite Black Peplum Top. I had never worn a peplum top so I was really excited to try it out. I absolutely love Jeetly Petite and always wanted to buy work wear from them. In my current job, I really don’t need to wear formal clothes so never had the opportunity indulge in formal clothes apart from the one pair of suit I have for interviews.

For those of you who don’t know, Jeetly Petite is a premium brand of business wear for petite women like me. Their clothes are classy and chic.  They pay attention to the smallest of details to ensure proportions flatter a petite figure.


My thoughts:

  1. I was really impressed with the quality of the garment. It was premium high quality material.
  2. The top fits me perfectly everywhere; even the shoulders fit me well and were not drooling down, unlike other tops
  3. The size is right and compliments the skirt, making me look tall ( bonus for petites).
  4. The Peplum top pattern flatters my figure, the silhouette is classy, chic and sophisticated.


I was extremely happy with the top and by far, it’s the best petite top I have ever tried on. So all you petite ladies what are you waiting for? Check out Jeetly Petite website now, I promise you won’t be disappointed.  Also, Jeetly Petite is running a Summer Sale on their website, discounts are up to 50% and ends on 31st July.

*Disclosure- Jeetly Petite sent me the Peplum Top for review, to be trialled and then sent back after 7 days. All opinion in this review are my own and has not been influenced by the brand.
