This weekend I’m setting up shop at Femme Fair for a full day of shopping, mingling, and learning. I already predict that at least three people who meet me for the first time will say, “I had no idea you were so short.” Every year at fashion week my size is a surprise! I thought I was transparent about it…”petite fashion” are the first two words in my IG profile. But in case you missed the memo, I’m five feet tall! Anyway, the reason I bring it up is because shopping for a petite frame is not an easy task. So when I was approached about the new Express Petite Collection, I was all ears.
Being petite means you have a very good relationship with the neighborhood tailor. It also means you are an expert high heel wearer, and that bodysuits NEVER fit. Well, well, well…Express has an answer for everything and for that I will forever be grateful. Bodysuits…check! Dress pants…check! Jackets…check! Remember last week’s yellow pants and off the shoulder top?! BOTH of those items are apart of the collection. Today, however, we feature jeans and a polka dot tee. Hear me out.
I have a love/hate relationship with jeans. Their touted for being comfortable and easy to wear, but they hardly ever fit me straight of the box. I am a pro at cuffing my denim – luckily cropped jeans are “in” this season. Petite gals rejoice because the jeans from the Express Petite Collection are a dream come true. The ultra high waist, actually hits at the waist and the length is just right. For once the fringe hem hits at the ankle, not the ground. Hallelujah! This may be the first but it is definitely not the last time I will invest in a pair of denim from the petites collection at Express!
