Stitch Fix For Petites

Stitch Fix PetitesStitch Fix is an affordable and accessible personal online styling service that helps you look and feel your best every day. They deliver a shopping experience that is truly personalized for you. For those that hate shopping, don’t have the time to shop, or those that have a hard time knowing what works best for their body type, Stitch Fix is here to help.

When Stitch Fix began in 2011 they didn’t offer petite clothing but now, thanks to what I’d assume was an overwhelming demand, they’re finally offering petites!  So for those of you that are interested in trying the Stitch Fix service, head over to their site and simply fill out the Stitch Fix Style Profile. Their personal stylists will handpick a selection of five clothing items and accessories unique to your taste, budget, and lifestyle and before you know it, a pretty little box will show up at your doorstep! From there, you purchase what you like and return the rest. Simple as that!

Here are some of the FAQ’s regarding their new petite sizes:

Do you offer petite sizing?

Yes! We are very excited to offer petite sizes to our clients! We now offer petite along with our regular selection of inventory.

What is the difference between your regular inventory and petite sizes?

Our petite selection offers our clients access to inventory with shorter sleeves, narrower shoulders, and shorter hems and inseams—all to fit you better!

Now that you offer petites, do I need to change my size?

No need to change your sizes, they stay the same! Just let your Stylist know that you would like to receive petites by updating your Style Profile.

Who are petite sizes offered to?

Our petite sizes are recommended for clients 5’3” and under. If you feel that petite sizes fit you best, and you are over 5’3”, please reach out to customer service at and they can help you find your best fit.

I’m petite on top, but not bottom. Can I get regular-sizing for certain items & petite sizing for others?

Absolutely! Go to your Style Profile and let us know which categories (tops, bottoms etc.) you are interested in receiving petite items. And, make sure to leave your Stylist a note when you schedule a Fix!______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I’ll be honest and say that Stitch Fix doesn’t sound incredibly appealing for me. The only reason I say this is because I enjoy shopping waaaay too much but I certainly love the idea so now that they have petites I may have to try it out!

Have you tried Stitch Fix? If so, let me know what you think. I’d love to hear your feedback!

Recap: Etiquette Boutique Grand Opening Party

Last month, I attended the grand opening party for Etiquette Boutique’s second location here in Fort Lauderdale. Before the event, myself, along with other fabulous fashion bloggers including, Poise from  Styled with Poise, Afroza from The Chic Stylista, Alina of Sky Style Couture, April from April Golightly . We each pulled an outfit from Etiquettes amazing selection of clothes for a live model to wear during the event. The event was a huge hit and included a bar serving signature cocktails, a DJ spinning great music, and tasty cupcakes.

I styled my model in some high waisted white lace shorts paired with a light weight flowy blue tank. I accessorized the outfit with a beautiful blue jeweled statement necklace and strappy nude heels — making her legs look even LONGER than they already are. In this photo, I am wearing a maxi skirt I bought from Etiquette Boutique, basic black tank from Cynthia Rowley, black belt from Forever 21 and heels (not shown) from BCBG. My heels were extremely tall and my model still felt the need to bend her legs so she wasn’t towering over me as much (we’re not all blessed with such height).

New York State of Mind: Springtime in the City

I was so excited to head to New York City again this month. This was only my second time to the “Big Apple”, my first being this past December during the holidays which was fantastic but cold to say the least. Going from 80 degrees in South Florida to a bone chilling 19 degrees and snow in NYC was a shocker but I still loved every minute. This trip was a little different but still a bit chilly.

This last trip a couple weeks ago was still cold (compared to Fort Lauderdale standards) but the snow was gone. Things were blooming and birds were chirping. I’d missed the bustling city streets and the screaming sirens. To some this may sound strange but to me, the city is where I thrive. While my husband was working, (it was a business trip for him) I explored the streets. I decided to ditch the map and wander instead. I explored all kinds of small boutiques, larger chains (Bergdorfs on Fifth is always a must) and tiny side streets lined with cherry blossoms and townhomes.

During the trip, I relied on my trusty leather jacket from Barney’s (similar here), Dolce Vita combat boots in black (find here) and Seven for all Mankind cropped skinny jeans (find here). I also wore my Vince Camuto “Hillari” ankle wedge boots (find here).

Until next time New York City!

Etiquette Boutique Grand Opening Party

Etiquette BoutiqueEtiquette Boutique, one of my favorite women’s boutiques here in South Florida, recently opened their second location and their celebrating with a grand opening party this Thursday, May 1st at 7pm in the Union Planters Plaza shopping center at at 2368 N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale.

Etiquette boutiques are locally-owned by mother and son team, Nola and David Harris who have owned a string of successful boutiques in Nashville, Tennessee and Louisville, Kentucky. After researching all of South Florida for about five months, they decided Fort Lauderdale was the clear choice for their flagship of Etiquette stores opening the first boutique in early 2012. The styles inside Etiquette Boutique are hand-selected and offer a mix of both investment and trendy pieces. Filling a void in the Fort Lauderdale shopping scene, Etiquette offers savvy shoppers an alternative to malls and online shopping with affordable pieces to round out their wardrobe. With about 70 new styles arriving weekly, the selection is perpetually changing – giving fashion enthusiasts all the more reason to check back often. Etiquette only pulls about six of each style to ensure the dreaded “OMG-she’s-wearing-the-same-dress” moment is avoided whenever possible.

During the event on Thursday evening, myself, along with four other wonderful fashion bloggers — Afroza from Chic Stylista, Alaina from Sky Style Couture Life, Anj from Styled With Poise, and April from April Golightly will be styling Spring & Summer looks using the boutique’s clothing and accessories thanks to Aileen from Newsy Parents. The event will also include live entertainment and cocktails.
