• Anthropologie holiday $300 giveaway (now closed)

    **Congrats to Josephine W. for winning this giveaway!! Thank you every who entered!**

    Anthropologie holiday dress petite

    Geisha Designs Sugared Ruby dress thanks to Anthropologie, Antrho monogram mug (full of puppy treats : ), Kate Spade heels (similar in “Gold”)

    I’ve planned a series of holiday giveaways for you guys, and am excited to start with one of my favorite brands for both clothing and home goods! I love the unique collections at Anthropologie, oftentimes available in petite sizing that’s exclusively sold there. This dress is by Geisha Designs which I hadn’t heard of until recently, and the petites in my usual size fit like this off the rack. To win a $300 gift card there (thanks to Anthro!) towards your favorite items, simply fill out the giveaway form at the end of this post.

    Belt knotting how-to

    My little buddy here is our friends’ puppy Stella…she had her own Christmas card shoot with Nick and decided to join me in these too. How could anyone say no to that face and cute little poncho sweater (and where can I find one in human size)? Our first photo was inspired by Anthro’s “who wore it better” doggie shoe-off series.

    For reference, this Sugared Ruby dress in 00p measures of 12.25″ across the waist, 15″ across the hips, 12″ from the top of shoulder to waist (closer to empire style), and 34″ total length. I agree with the reviews that the lasercut detail is a stunner in-person although the material (it is lined) can be a little scratchy on the inside. I tried on a few other petite dress styles and really liked the Moilinette Soeurs “Baikal” floral dress, now on sale. That one is a fuller fit+flare style in a gorgeous oversized floral pattern, which a thin waist belt helps breaks up nicely. Sizing is limited since it’s on sale, but if your size is still left I’d highly recommend it as it is very good quality with detailed craftsmanship. It fits true to size and may need a hem job on someone my height since it hits at my upper calf (I dropped it off at the tailor to get 2″ taken up)

    **Giveaway rules** To enter, visit Anthropologie’s website and let me know in the Rafflecopter giveaway form directly below what your favorite item is! Petite dresses specifically are here and regular-sized dresses are here. If you’re looking for something other than dresses, they also have an extensive selection of petite denim from a number of brands. (If you do win, you can of course use your gift card on any items of your choice!)

    Giveaway is open internationally! One entry per person, please. Please make sure to use the Rafflecopter form so I have an email address to notify the winner at, but let me know in the comments if you have issues and I’ll record it manually. Winner will be drawn at random via Rafflecopter on December 23, 2014 and will be notified via email. Good luck!

      Hi, Jean! I love the laser cut of your dress! You've also inspired me to buy the limited edition gold monogrammed mug as well as the plain black monogrammed mug! Question though, I noticed in you Instagram that you posted a pic of you in a darling pair of dotted PJs! Can you tell me where I can get them, please?

    • Shira December 16, 2014 at 11:48 pm

      Always love your Anthro outfits! Fingers crossedddd, dying for the sequin wink loafers 🙂

      Love your blog as I too am an extra petite gal. I love a lot of the dresses; Anthropologie is one of my favorites for petite clothing. I particularly liked the Graphic Paisley Swing dress by Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent. I couldn't get the Rafflecopter to work. Linda Stansfield

      My current favorite dress is the Fatima Maxi Dress by Tracy Reeve. Maxi dress for petite size woman:) I love to pair it up with a denim jacket!

      Hard to choose favorites, but I really like the dress you featured here, the Sugared Ruby Sheath. Normally I don't shop at Anthropologie because how pricey it is, but love their stuff. Thanks for the giveaway!

      The laser-cut pattern of the dress is absolutely beautiful! And the puppy looks so adorable in the red sweater, awesome!
