Feminine Fall


If you’ve been following me for a while, you will know that I’m a huge fan of streamlined, tailored pieces because I’m extra petite. These kinds of pieces are fluid and straight throughout so it doesn’t drown my stature.

So when I began to experiment with wider shapes, like these wide leg pants, I was a little worried that it wouldn’t work. The idea I had worked up in my mind was imaginatively perfect, but of course things sometimes don’t work out. Like the time I tried over-sized coats or ankle boots that ran directly across your ankles. It really looked like I was 5 and playing dress up and the booties cut my body up, making me even shorter.


… but in this case, I tailored the pants to my exact shape and voila! .. it was perfection. Aside from the successful experiment, the color combination of this outfit screams pure Femininity. .. As the word runs along this tee.


I love every thing about being feminine and fearless. And this outfit proves just that. When you dress amazingly, you feel amazing.

Leopard Love


Name someone that doesn’t love leopard in the Fall because it’s definitely a staple for me. …Or technically I wear it year round but I wear it so much more this season. 


I also added a white tweed coat to bring in all the colors of this tunic. Yes I said tunic; because of my small stature it works perfectly as a dress. 
Sometimes, good things come in different forms. On a taller person this tunic would hit at the hips.


Do you have/find pieces that work in more than one way for your stature? Share your thoughts below. I’d love to know!

Fall Must-Haves


Fall is here! This is the ONE season I wait for all year and most times it doesn’t stay long enough for me to enjoy the colors. I try to get up north as much as I can when it nears this season because the colors are most prominent and available there.
In the cities, you get some trees that have changed and the rest have already fallen off the branches. But what else is exciting about Fall?! Warm, cozy sweaters, beautiful coats and cute BOOTS! .. and more ..


I go crazy over Fall Shopping so my wallet remains REALLY skinny around this time .. LOL! It’s because I really need those 12 white knits, 4 black boots and 5 berets  .. all of which are in different tones.


If Fall isn’t going to linger long enough, I guess I’ll just find the colors in my wardrobe.


What are your Fall obsessions? .. I definitely have WAY TOO MUCH to hold in two hands.
