I stopped by jcpenney last week to pick out my MNG by MANGO items. Flipping though the racks, I started to panic as every item I pulled out was cut generously. In the midst of my flipping fury (and still empty handed), Nick surfaced out of nowhere with carefully selected, potentially petite-friendly items. I thought for sure he was off wandering the mall for pretzels or checking fantasy football stats. Instead, my photog-turned-personal shopper pulled through for me in a time of need. Almost every item I ended up bringing home was hand-picked by Nick!
This dress in an XS/ 4 worked for me because it has an elastic waistband. By wearing the band up higher, the hem came up a few inches as well. I love the elegant twist back that’s open, yet bra-friendly (wore a normal black bra).
Going hand in hand with our London theme, I had a lovely time at the Burberry cocktail party last night with Carolyn and Khatu. I wore my thrifted skirt, booties, and a cozy cashmere pullover.
Side story: The last time I popped into Burb get my trench tailored, I ran into my beloved SA, John, from whom I’ve been learning about coats since I was a fresh-eyed college gal. After chatting briefly about sleeve hemming, he suddenly threw his hands up in the air and exclaimed, “Oh my goodness! Are you…petite asian girl?! I’ve had so many ladies come in looking for coats and they told me about your blog! I just never put two and two together!” Flabbergasted, my mouth must’ve hung open for several minutes straight. I’m humbled that so many stylish ladies read this blog, actually value my suggestions, and even share it with others. It’s an unbelievable feeling – so thank you, each and every one of you.
