The Midi

Monday, August 15, 2016


To any of my fellow readers who shop for extended sizes, I'm sure you can agree that we are skimped out on when it comes to selections. As a petite shopper I find I am often offered the baseline of product without much of a fashion selection mixed in. But when a retailer like Banana Republic offers a full petites line within its collection, I am instantly a fan.

With petites collections I like to experiment with trends that aren't regularly meant for my body type (ie. the midi skirt). As long as you feel good in what you wear, nothing should stop you from rocking it. I love the movement of this piece and its ability to be styled both up and down. In this case, I dressed it down to take on a steamy day in the suburbs.

  13. Oh my gosh, I had no idea Banana Republic did a petites line and now I'm stalking like crazy. As a fellow shortie, I totally get you! I'm also on the curvy side, but for some reason retailers can't accept that being wider and short are not mutually exclusive.

    Love that midi skirt on you. Might just have to get one for myself :)

  19. I love midi skirts and dresses and wearing them with sliders like you did here makes them feel more casual cool than prissy. Great styling!

  25. Love how breezy the Midi is. Lightweight fabric and a softer shade of colour is perfect for petites or anyone who doesn't want to look 'lumpy' :)

  29. Hello, Christina!

    Your midi skirt looks beautiful, and I love how you styled it. Also, I can totally agree with your statement that it doesn't matter if you wear something which doesn't embrace your features as long as you feel good wearing it. Cheers to us petite girls! <3

    Hope to hear from you soon. :)

    Love, Airish
