J.Crew cardigan jacket xxxs (runs a bit big) – outfit is from this post

I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for deals this weekend, and will keep this post updated! A couple highlights from this post – jump below to the “Home” section for two awesome, reader-recommended couches on major sale, and also the “Beauty” section for a few skincare and haircare brands that don’t usually go on sale.

J.Crew

Update 9/25: Take 40% off my Sophie sweater blazer + 50% off select outerwear, 1 day only!

  • Sophie Cardigan – Very versatile staple! See it on me here with jeans, here with a skirt, here simply over a black turtleneck dress, and here with 2 types of black bottoms for a few styling ideas! Size down if you’re debating between sizes. I have the camel “heather khaki” as pictured here in xxxs (I’m usually an xxs petite), and they just came out with a deeper brown color and lighter tan as well.
  • Classic trench – Classic belted trench starting in 00 petite (oftentimes excluded from sales)
  • Teddy bear coat – While the petite sizing version of this jacket appears to be full price, I did online chat with customer service and was told that its a glitch and should actually be 50% off today. The CS rep told me that if I purchased today and send in my order number, they would refund the 50% off difference.
  • Rain jacket – Lots of colors in petite, regular, or tall

Abercrombie

Update 9/25: Up to 40% sale items and 25% off 4+ items, 15% off 3 items sitewide + free shipping on orders over $75

athleisure outfit a&f pullover, zella leggings and nikes

J.Crew Factory

Update 9/25: Extra 20% off + free ship on orders $99+ with code NEW4FALL (ends 9/27)

  • Marled joggers – Under $40 in both petite and regular. Just ordered these to try, as petite friendly knit joggers are hard to come by.
  • Camel sweater jacket – Under $60 and now available in petites!
  • Rain jacket – 60% off in petite & regular. Read the reviews under regular sizing tab if you’re interested in the yellow.
  • My longtime staple scallop camisole under $40 off in many colors. See on me here.

Express

Update 9/25: 30 – 50% off everything

Stuart Weitzman

The Deal: 60% off sale styles – filter by your size!

Note: Sale items are listed as final sale, but I called and was told that if you contact Customer Service when you receive your order, they will allow exchanges for a different size. 

  • 60% off these beautiful petite-friendly below the knee boots in chestnut brown. Shaft height is listed as 14″ and circumference is listed as 10″ when un-stretched (the backing is elasticized and stretchy). As fellow petite ladies may know, it’s pretty rare to come by boots with this low of a shaft measurement and smaller calf opening measurement!

Banana Republic

The Deal: Up to 40% off and an extra 50% off sale styles.

H&M sweater xs (current version), Everlane jeans 25, hems cut, T&B booties (old; similar), Gucci belt size 70 (my size guide) + soho bag

H&M

The Deal: 20% off everything, free ship over $40 (Update: Sale has ended, but free ship over $40 is still going on!)

Home

Macy’s

The Deal: 20-60% off select home goods (ends Sunday 9/13). Free ship on orders $25+ (excluding furniture)

Martha Stewart sofa [ sale] – reviewed here with photos of other colors

Dyson

The Deal: Save $100 – $150 on select vacuum models (ends 9/12). Our cordless vacuum is hands down our most used electronic, esp with a messy toddler around! I’ve been a fan of these vacuums for a while and have gotten two older Dyson models in the past (before they got claimed by my parents), and they’re honestly all pretty good.

Mattresses

Several popular online mattress companies are having promos this weekend:

  • Tuft & Needle – 10% off sitewide (ends 9/7)
  • Purple – Up to $150 off mattresses and up to 10% off select bundles
  • Nectar – 2 pillows, a mattress protector and set of sheets ($399 value) with every mattress purchase
  • Allswell – 15% off Luxe & Supreme mattresses, 20% off bedding with PERFECTROOM (ends 9/8)

Society 6

The Deal: (Update: Sale just ended) 30% off everything. I have loved browsing this site featuring home goods printed with work by independent artists. I’ve bought a few small items and prints and have been happy with them. Only thing is it can be a bit overwhelming to browse all the options due to the # of artists!

Skincare & Beauty

Violet Grey

The Deal: (Update: Sale just ended) 20% off TONS of higher end skincare, beauty & hair brands with code CUSTOMERSONLY. Free 3 day shipping on orders over $50.

SkinStore

The Deal: (Update: Sale just ended) Up to 25% off with code LABOR. Free ship on orders $49+

See how I use my beauty blender, liquid liner, and foundation brush in this IGTV video!

Farmacy Beauty

The Deal: (Update: Sale just ended) 25% off sitewide with STOCKUP, free shipping & returns over $40 (sale ends 9/7)

  • Sweet Greens gift set – Marked down lower than before for $25 after discounts! Features two of their top sellers, including a mini size of their moisturizing Honey Potion mask and a very good, full size balm cleanser.
  • Honeymoon Glow Night Serum – Happy to hear a lot of great feedback from you guys who ordered this recommendation during a previous sale!
  • Coconut Gel Mask – $3 per mask after discounts. I have both the brightening and hydrating sets of this mask for self pampering during Netflix or to include as part of gifts.

    Hey Jean! I just received my jcrew Sophie cardigan and I realized it’s dry clean only. Have u tried putting this cardigan in the wash before or strictly dry cleaned it?

      Hi Sam, I wash mine minimally so can’t recall if I’ve done this with my sophie cardigan, but I wash a lot of my dry clean only sweaters on a delicate cycle. I turn it inside out and place it in a mesh garment bag, then dry flat on a mesh sweater rack – it’s key to keep it out of the dryer! I also use a sweater shaver on any pills. All of the products I use can be found on my Amazon page – https://www.amazon.com/shop/extrapetite?listId=QE5OYZ448WDZ

    Hi Jean,
    I love browsing through the sites you recommend, many I’ve not heard about!
    Have you any recommendations for scents,
    both to wear and for your home?

      Hi Cat, I typically go scent free but in the past I have loved Jo Malone (which is on the pricier side, but lasts a long time!)

    That H&M chunky sweater looks so good on you! Does the sweater shrink in the wash or a bit itchy since it has some wool in the fabric?

    Posted 9.7.20 Reply
    • Jean | Extra Petite wrote:

      Hi Olyvia – I air dry it or dry on a sweater rack and haven’t noticed notable shrinking! Due to the wool content it’s not a super soft sweater, especially compared to fully acrylic or synthetic sweaters, but I usually wear a cami or something underneath so don’t find it itchy.

    Hi Jean, thanks for the petite-friendly boots options. I’m exactly 5 foot tall and I can never find pretty boots that don’t fold over my knees. Shorter ones are oh so ugly. Anyway, thanks for curating this.

    Hi Jean! I have a question on the Stuart Weitzman boots, I’ve been eyeing them all week since they went on sale. I have been reading reviews to no avail to identify if they are narrow or not from the front since they do not have a wide width available. I’m a size 5.5 and my feet are on the wider side so wanted to make sure they won’t be too cramped in these since they are final sale and I can’t really go to any stores right now. Any insights you have will be highly appreciated!

      Hi Akanksha – have you tried any SW boots in the past? I did try on this specific sale style but it was half a year ago so my memory is a little fuzzy, but I believe it felt similar to their almond toe OTK boots like the Lowland, Midland, Tieland, etc in terms of narrowness. If your feet are on the narrow side and you haven’t tried on SW boots in person before, it might be too risky.

    Hi Jean,

    In regards to simple, clean wall clocks, have you heard of the American made Tait Design wall clocks? I recently ordered two “slate” coloured ones and am looking forward to receiving them.

      Hi Pam, hope all is well with you and the family! I haven’t come across that brand before and the designs certainly are clean and beautiful. We needed numerical clocks for our house but always nice to learn about new brands.

        Thanks Jean, we’re getting ready to return back to school. I like numerical clocks too, especially for teaching kids how to read analog clocks.

        On another note, thanks so much for recommending the A&F asymmetrical snap-up and balloon sleeve sweatshirt. I just purchased it and like the coziness of the asymmetrical snap-up and the sweatshirt will be one I can wear out of the house. I don’t usually purchase casual wear, but I’m starting to see the value in purchasing nice ones.

        I hope your last trimester is going smoothly and all the best on your delivery.

  13. Hi Jean! I got a sample of the Honeymoon Glow serum, and when I applied it my face started stinging/burning and was red for over a day. I didn’t use the whole sample. Did you have a similar experience? I’m scared to use the rest of the sample. It’s so highly rated by others that I feel like I may have just had an allergic reaction or something?

    Posted 9.4.20 Reply
    • Jean | Extra Petite wrote:

      Hi Kimi – the serum contains AHA which may tingle for some and usage should be built up gradually over time (the instructions say start by using 2 times a week and build up usage from there). But it shouldn’t be painful or cause something like you described unless you had an allergic reaction!

    I’ve been meaning to say this for a while but it’s sad that you advertise for AF. It doesn’t matter what they’re trying to say now to avoid criticisms because it’s only a business tactic strategy.

      I am comfortable with shopping at the brand. The article you keep sharing with me was written 6 years ago and it actually concludes on how the brand has a chance to turn around with different leadership.
