Coming Soon: Edited Pieces

<sign up at Edited Pieces to be the first to know when we launch, and follow on IG for peeks!>

It feels surreal to finally share with you guys a project that’s been years in the making and a small labor of love! I started this blog over a decade ago as a creative outlet, posting my trials and errors as I learned how to dress my body type. As a fresh college grad working in a male dominated field, building a closet of polished, well fitting pieces was always about so much more than just shopping. Dressing well sparks confidence, brings a little joy to my day, and helps me put my best foot forward for others to take me seriously.

While my style needs and tastes have evolved over these years, I’ve kept a running list of classic pieces I’d love to add to my wardrobe, but have been challenging to find in the right fit or quality. I’ve also kept close track of the types of pieces I get the most frequent reader requests for, but can rarely find.

And so with Edited Pieces, we’re starting small. Making small edits to timeless styles that we’ll want to wear for years to come. Each style is either handmade or produced in limited quantities at small factories, and undergoes countless rounds of sampling and testing. We’ve taken extensive measurements, pain points, and info from YOU guys, from a detailed survey that thousands of you helped fill out 2 years ago, to the wonderful readers around Boston who have been helping fit-testing and share feedback on each piece.

I wanted to keep the EP initials of Extra Petite in the brand name for a couple reasons. One, while everything we make will be petite-friendly, we didn’t want it to feel petite-only. Every body truly is different and comes in different proportions that we hope to be able to cater to as we grow. And secondly, as a nod to this blog, my first passion-project turned career, which has connected me to this incredible community. Thank you for being here along the way and for helping me realize this dream.

    Wow congrats! I’ve been following for a while and love your style. I find it difficult to find similar pieces in Europe (The Netherlands) so hoping you’ll ship here as well. Looking forward to the launch 🙂

    Jean – I could not be more thrilled for you! This is making me nostalgic for when I started my bag brand. It truly is a labor of love perfecting the details and launching your “baby”, but I have no doubt that your curated lineup and its growth will be as successful, fabulous, thoughtful, and beautiful as you (and your blog) have been and continue to be! I am super excited to see the line. Congratulations! 🙂

    I have followed you before you got married, loved all your tips and the way you match outfit. being 5 foot with shoes size of 4.5 and mother of two kids as well, you have inspired me so much! Only thing is I live in Canada, alot of the store has closed in Canada and the online shopping require shipping fee or the sale coupon code doesn’t apply for any of the itmes you recommend to Canada online store. I always ended up not ordering those lovely items for this reason. Hopefully we have Canadians friendly online store to be recommend by you. Xoxo.

    Yahoo! I had a feeling this might be in the works when you had asked for those measurements for narrow calf boots awhile back. So exciting – congrats!! Like some of the other readers here, I am petite in height but curvy/hourglass, so look forward to seeing if there is anything that will work for me too. 🙂 Petites are so often ignored by retailers. Can’t wait to see!

    I have followed you for a long time and remember you dropping once that when you were younger you thought about going into fashion but gave it up for finance, thinking that was more practical. Sounds like your first dream will come true, if maybe in a different way than what you expected. As a 5’0 person, I’ll be watching with interest and wish you the best!

    I’ve been following you for a few years now, and love to continue to watch you and your family, plus get tons of amazing advice from the topics you share. And despite not having a personal relationship with you, I do feel like I have found a virtual friend in you (especially through pregnancy). Now, I have to say that all I feel is pride. Pride that you’ve reached a goal and dream of yours. Price that you had the guts to take that leap. And pure happiness that you continue to work on what you love. I’m so happy for you!!
