Petite Review: GAP Petite Denim Jeans- Size 00P

As you all may know, I have been on a perfect pair of jeans hunt for quite some time. I don't own too many pairs simply because it's just too difficult for me to find the right fit. I have one H & M young (girls) dark denim skinny jeans in size 11/12 and a few Y.M.I's from a million years ago but that's about it! I was perusing late at night on and found a pair of skinny cropped petite jeans on sale for only $24.99 and still available in 00p.  I thought how is it possible that there is still a 00p left??  I have never had much luck with any Gap jeans but I said what the heck! Well here they are: (warning- terrible photos)

Top: Forever 21 Tank- size small
Jeans: GAP petite cropped denim - size 00p (on sale for $24.99)
Shoes: Aldo Patent Taupe Pumps- size 35

Sorry for the terrible photos- I was in a huge rush and didn't get a chance to really get the photos I wanted:(

Shoes: Nine West Escher Peep Toes- size 5 (on sale HERE)
Sorry for the non-existant accessories in this outfit! I was in a big hurry and it was super hot outside:)

Petite Fall Fashion Preview: My Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, BEBE and Aqua Picks

I didn't have anything planned for today's post so I thought I would talk about my picks for this Fall fashion collection! Is it almost really Fall? How is that even possible? Where did this Summer go? My picks are all very petite friendly and I hope you like them! Usually the really petite sizes go fast so I wanted to share with everyone what I like for Fall.  Here are Ann Taylor Petite picks:

And of course, here is the matching tweed skirt:

I am so curious to see the fit on this. I hope to see this on a petite soon!  I am so happy to see tweed is still in because I am still in love with my Theory Tweed suit which I can't seem to get enough of and cannot wait to wear it again and again for Fall and Winter! I also like this deep aqua silk crepe blouse- it has the cute sleeves I like and is so feminine and pretty!

Banana Republic Fitting Room: Why I Don't Wear Pants

The day I got my Banana Khaki Blazer, I tried on some pants for fun. I haven't bought pants in so long because I just simply gave up hope. Here is why:
I can't remember the exact name but think they are the Martin Pants. These were in the sale rack but I believe they may be similar to the ones AlterationsNeeded and PAG tried on and were huge on them too!

Lookbook: Weekend Brunch With Khaki And Porcini

Remember my khaki Banana Republic blazer I got for $27.99? Well I ended up getting a price adjustment and got an additional 20% off! Woohoo! They normally don't do that but they made an exception so it never hurts to ask! My Ann Taylor Porcini pumps came on Friday and this is what I wore out this weekend:
Top: H & M Ruffle Shell- size 2
Jeans: H & M Young- size 11/12 (similar HERE in 00SHORT)
I had to roll up the sleeves because they are a bit too long but luckily the inside is lined with cute white stripes so it looks like I did it on purpose!

Lookbook: Two Outfits With One Top

Happy Wednesday! I was torn on which outfit I wanted to post today so I just included both! I have on my new LOFT flutter trim blouson top  that I got this past weekend and couldn't wait to wear it! Here it is in Pebble Melange Gray, also available in Ribbon Pink (which I also got). Up first is this top paired with the LOFT jacquard skirt in fresh navy:
Top: LOFT Flutter Top- size XXSP (sold HERE)
Skirt: LOFT Jacquard in Fresh Navy- size 00P (sold HERE)
Shoes: Tory Burch Angela Pumps- size 5

I tried to throw on my LOFT navy jacket here in size 0p: (similar HERE)
Too much or does it work? I kind of liked it and it tones down the shimmery skirt...thoughts?
Here's in different lighting and a close-up:
This top surprisingly fits quite well. It has an elastic band on the bottom which I think is meant to be worn with jeans but it's tiny enough where you can tuck in w/no bulge. I cannot stand bulges when tucking in tops! I tend to tuck everything in so it has to be fitted enough so it doesn't look weird. This top reminds me of the Ann Taylor petal shell from months ago that I missed out on the small sizes.

Need Help: How To Wear Ann Taylor's Bib Necklace

I just got my Ann Taylor Bib Necklace and need help figuring out a way to wear it to work. I didn't expect it to be so big and shiny! Ann Taylor tweeted me and suggested that I pair it with a white collared shirt and have it peek it out for a little bit of bling. Unfortunately I don't have a plain white button up!
It's super pretty but a little too dressy for work so I'm trying to figure out what to wear it with! So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! It's a final sale so there's no returning it. I must find a way to wear it!!!

Yes it's a miracle my hair is up! I rarely put it up because I never have time to do my hair. And it usually never stays up and seconds always ends up falling down.

Lookbook: LOFT Royal Blue Wrap Dress- Size 00P

I hope everyone is not sick of all my LOFT posts lately but I bought so much stuff that I have no choice but to wear them! Here is the steal of the century- I got this for $9.88! I usually don't have good luck with LOFT dresses, for some reason they fit me funny and are usually too big. But this one looked tiny on the hanger and I didn't even try it on and it was a final sale so good thing it fits!
Dress: LOFT wrap dress- size 00p (similar HERE)
Cami: Banana Republic Luxe Cami- size XSP (sold HERE)

Shoe Review: Christian Louboutins Pump's- Is It Petite Feet Friendly?

Well the day is finally first pair of Christian Louboutin's are here! It was backordered until September but it came early!!!!  If you have been a reader since I started this blog, you know it's almost impossible for me to find pumps that fit properly w/out slipping. I decided to give these a shot despite the high sticker price....*Drum Roll*
Click below for my review and to see if this is petite feet friendly!
