Happy Friday! Work's picked up so I didn't have anything prepared for today, but thought I'd share a quick outtake from my posts with Nordstrom Petites. I picked out this dress for its simple color scheme and covered shoulders (one less layer to mull over when getting dressed in the morning!). The slightly stretchy black crepe is comfy for long hours behind a desk, but I wish the upper were actual lace instead of a lace/crochet-y print. I'm a little bummed about that, but on the plus side, got to try on a brand that's new to me. I didn't realize Vince Camuto has a decent-sized selection in petites that's both work-appropriate and machine-washable (always a plus).
This dress is noted in the description to run a size small. I'd agree, and thought a 0P fit comparable to a 00P in Ann Taylor/LOFT or in between an H&M sz 2 to 4. I was happy to hear from the Nordies merchandising team that they'll be introducing size XXS Petite in Vince Camuto, Halogen, and Calson starting next spring (how cute is this Calson knit jacket? wish it came in that size now).
For reference, measurements of a 0P: 15" across armpits, 12.75" across waist, 17" across hips, 14" across shoulders, 33" length. 97% poly, 3% spandex, made in China. Fully lined with invisible back zipper.
