Bettys, meet our new friend, Elizabeth. Like so many ladies, Elizabeth loves clothes. Like so many petite ladies, she got frustrated with the lack of options for her stature. So, rather than simply mourn the loss of the petite department, Elizabeth, who measures in at five feet tall (just like yours truly) decided to do something about it. The result? The Petite Shop, an online boutique Elizabeth launched in the fall of 2012. The Petite Shop gathers together gorgeous, hard-to-find, and (most importantly) petite specific and petite friendly clothing options and puts them all in one handy place. Shopping for smaller-statured women has never been easier!
We sat down to chat with Elizabeth about her best tips and style tricks for petite gals, from how to pull off bold prints to what to do to make a “petite don’t” into a “petite do.” Elizabeth tells us, “For starters, I’m a firm believer that whatever your size or height, you can wear what you want to if done in a flattering way for your body. More than anything else, your clothing needs to fit in order to flatter!” So start there—and then take these guidelines in hand and get ready to shine. Good things come in small packages, after all!
