Some other dresses I think are great options for petites are:
– Grisaille hourglass dress
– Lacebloom dress (very Kate Spade-esque)
– Romana dress
– Paned hourglass column dress
If you are in need of a navy blue lace dress, the one I reviewed here is a great option too.
Do you shop at Anthropologie?
Shoes: Christian Louboutin – size 34.5 (buy here)
After being convinced by so many of ladies, I’ve decided to keep this dress. I still can’t get over the price tag but will just make it a point to wear it as often as possible. I have a love/hate relationship with Anthropologie. They rarely offer free shipping (minimum purchase is $175+) and the good sales are far and few between. Most stores don’t carry petites in-stores which makes it difficult for me to avoid having to order and then return. Their sizing is very inconsistent due to all the different brands/vendors that they carry.
Nonetheless, I’m loving the way this dress fits. It’s completely different than any other dresses I own. It’s fun and bold but still classy enough to wear to work. Even though the prices at Anthropologie is much higher than I prefer to spend, they have a lot of unique pieces. I like that they offer petite sizing which gives us shorter gals another option when shopping.
