Here is another brand I found at Nordstrom Rack called Eight Sixty that is actually very petite friendly. At first- I thought it was a Junior’s brand but it turns out to be a women’s brand. Never heard of it before but I ran across this dress and decided to try it on and loved it!!!
The bottom half is 100% silk and the exposed zipper in the back is what sold me. Had it been faux silk- I definitely would have passed even though the XS fits so nicely. These types of dresses which is really popular in the Junior’s department, I tend to shy away from only because it’s a little too teeny-bopper for me. But what I liked about this particular dress is the fact that it really looks like a true 2-piece and not too “kiddish”.

Clearly my favorite color is pink and this ring had to be custom made from scratch for my small fingers! I am size 3 finger! We petite women have to get clothes tailored and there’s no small rings out there without it having sized or custom made!? What’s up with that?:) This ring is my absolute favorite right hand ring. There are diamonds in all 3 rows and surrounding the beautiful pink oval gemstone.

I am curious to see if their XS skirts will fit petites…?? I’m thinking if the XS dresses fit this small, maybe there is hope for the XS skirts perhaps? Has anyone tried this brand before?
I tend to run really cold at work so I threw on the cashmere shrug to keep me warm in the office. I posted a similar shrug from White House/Black Market in an XXS- see my previous post HERE. I first saw this Aqua (Bloomingdale’s Exclusive) cashmere shrug back on Extra Petite’s post (see HERE) and fell in love with it but they were sold out everywhere and I thought all hope was lost. For some reason, it popped up online one day and I snatched it up so fast. It was fate because it was a girls large and that’s the size Extra Petite had and it fit her perfectly and she looked awesome in it. I like the Aqua shrug much better than the White House/Black Market one because not only because it’s pure cashmere but it sits on the chest much better and it was 1/2 the price- for cashmere too! I couldn’t believe my luck and I got it for dirt cheap- $36! I was more than thrilled! I absolutely love shrugs/bolero’s because I wear dresses all the time and its great as a cover-up! You can also wear it with jeans too. This shrug will definitely be popping up in many of my future posts!
There is a black elastic waist band that makes your waist look super tiny!
I think by pairing pumps with a dress like this makes it a little more “adult” like and it’s work appropriate for casual Friday’s. The dress seems to be made quite well, not like the other two piece dresses that are in the Junior department that falls apart or pills up after 1 wear (or so I hope).
I love the colors pink and navy blue together! And the print on the bottom isn’t too much for me. The silk definitely feels good and the fact that the top fits so nicely and it’s not too low-cut makes it a winner for me. It’s a keeper!
In other news- I finally reached over 100 followers- YAY!!! 🙂 I will be doing my very first giveaway very soon!!!! It’s hard to believe I just started blogging a little over ONE month ago! I’m so excited! I use blogging as a stress reliever from work and honestly did not think it would grow this fast. It makes me feel so good! Thank you everyone:)
