Recently, I was contacted by the PR rep for Jeetly, based out of the UK.  This is an online-only, petite-exclusive collection that only launched this past fall.  The collection consists of blouses, skirts and dresses, all appropriate for a moderately conservative office.  I was lucky enough to get a discount to purchase two of the […]

Wow, it’s been almost a month since the last DelectablyChic! Closet post!  I’ve been concentrating a lot on the main site’s posts, thus didn’t have much time to take pictures of new outfits that I have purchased over the last few weeks.  I finally was able to take some pictures last week, but didn’t get […]

Considering how I’m always about being “proper” and “lady-like,” I’m actually not much of a headpiece kind of girl.  Therefore, this Petite Fashion Challenge, hosted by KTR Style, was definitely a challenge for me.  I do have a few pieces, purchased at shows and other events, but I just never really…wore them.  For this month’s […]
