Pre-Spring Want List in Petite-Friendly Sizes - $50 and under

Boy am I ready for winter to be over! As I'm wiping the slush and salt from my boots, I can't help getting excited for new Spring stuff that's currently taking over all stores ... cute shorts, flirty dress ... only 4 more months! Some picks for now, though, before the small sizes are gone:

1. Little white dress - American Eagle Burnout Floral Dress in sz 00, $44.50. Material is really pretty when zoomed in, plus I'm a sucker for side pockets.  Several of us petites have had luck with AE's XXS sweaters, but I can't speak from experience as to how small their 00 fits. For a really adorable patterned dress, the AF Kids Bridget dress I blogged about a while back is now on sale for $19.99 in navy with large sizes still remaining.

2. Sheer Lightweight Scarves - Aurorae Scarf from Anthropologie, $78 19.99... a great deal for 100% silk. Additional picks: Old navy also silk blend dot scarves in 6 colors at $12.50 a pop, and Gap has a lightweight plaid frayed scarf - on sale for only $5.99 in stores! I picked this up in gray/blue and love it for casual wear.

3. A Pretty Romper - Armani Exchange silk shorts romper in size 0P, $49. Per AlterationsNeeded, a P0 from here tends to fit pretty small! Now this is a rather impractical want because I could never pull off this look. Magazines keep saying rompers are still in, but I have NEVER seen one being worn in real life!

4. Short Shorts - Gap Kids Cuffed Railroad Shorts in sz 12 or 14, $20. A little grundgy, yes, but I would totally rock these (after they go on sale). I can see this with an airy cotton A-lined blouse and some nude heels or gladiator sandals. Additional pick: American Eagle Favorite Short in 00, $29.50 and bound to go on sale as well. I'd get these in white.


  1. This reminds me, I am wearing an AE dress I just bought online, the AE shimmer dress in grey xxs.

    It fits like it was made for me (as nice as on the model) and the quality is really nice. Looks much better in real life. Click on the close-up pics. Side pockets too! extra 20% off with code 89741763 so the cost is basically ridiculous. :D

  2. Omigosh!!! I forgot to peek in the clearance section. That dress is very cute for an unbelievable $8.37 before shipping. If you take XXS, then I will probably need XS. Thanks for sharing the link and the code!
