Here’s a little snippet of office holiday party outfits to come…I picked up this plaid popover shirt a few weeks ago and absolutely love the festive tartan and the petite-friendly fit. Last year’s version sold out quickly so I jumped on it early this season. J.Crew Factory is having a flash sale with free shipping – I picked up a few of the items below for an early gift exchange and couldn’t resist a set of flannel PJs for myself! After machine washing and drying so many times, my set in xxs regular from years ago have started to fit more like petite.
I’ve also tried on a few other Factory pieces recently which were a surprisingly good fit. Even in regular sizing, the elasticized waist wool-blend skirts in 00 reg which they have year after year fit me well. The sultry metallic striped dress below (another festive holiday party option) was a snug fit in 00p, and the puffer down coat was perfect for me throughout in xxsp. The coat for under $100 is an amazing value for down-filled outerwear that fits a petite frame without alterations.
I ended up buying the J.Crew regular Wintress puffer coat instead because I loved the features more, however that one is notably pricier and has a few fit issues like the sleeves being a tad short and the torso feeling snugger. I’ll do a detailed review of that one soon, but wanted to share about the Factory sale while all sizes were still in stock!
