Recent Purchases: Ann Taylor, J.Crew and Arthur Mendonça

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 […]

Petite Fashion Challenge 22: Winter Shopping

This month’s challenge, hosted by A Preponderence of Fashion, asks: The weather outside is frightful, but indoor shopping is warm and delightful. So, whether you have wind, rain, or snow, show me your clothes when shopping for friends or foes! Please keep in mind that you should prepare for the cold without looking like Joey […]

Ann Taylor and LOFT Purchases – In Toronto!

If you read my main site, DelectablyChic!, you’d know that both Ann Taylor and LOFT have opened up stores in Toronto (Ann Taylor now has two – one downtown at the Eaton Centre and another at Yorkdale).  Being as busy as I am, I haven’t really had the chance to post some outfit pictures from […]

Vegan Leather Leggings: Loot from Shop ‘Til You Drop

LouLou Magazine’s Shop ‘Til You Drop, a shopping event similar to Lucky’s LUCKY SHOPS and Fashion’s Night Out was held in Toronto earlier this week.  Though I was still suffering from a cold, I braved the unusually cool weather and went to several events and picked up tights as well as a houndstooth dress (picture […]

J.Crew’s ‘Hen Sweater’: Cute or Just Plain Silly?

It kind of caught my attention because it’s different from what J.Crew typically sells.  Featuring a hen in a beret, the cute-looking sweater comes in two colours – navy (with a cream-coloured hen wearing a baby pink beret) and camel (or acorn blue, with a blue hen wearing a hot pink beret), sizes XXS to […]

Full Skirts and the Petite

I recently purchased two full skirts, one from Femme de Carriere, a Montreal-based clothing store with office-friendly clothing (both casual and formal) and another from a Kate Spade outlet in Niagara Falls, New York.  Some people think that  these skirts can overwhelm a petite frame, but it really depends on the style (e.g. how much […]

BCBG Dress for a Bat Mitzvah

This weekend, my husband and I drove down to Rochester, NY to attend his cousin’s Bat Mitzvah.  Though we’ve been married for nearly two years and together for close to seven, this was my  first bat mitzvah service – I had attended many receptions before.  It was a weekday service at a Reform temple, and […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Swirl Dress

Sorry for taking so long to post this! I’ve been crazy-busy wrapping up the DelectablyChic! Social (which was pretty  good, by the way) and just didn’t have time to take pictures.  The dress is so light weight and summer-ready and I’ve worn it out a couple of times already, including to a Father’s Day dinner […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic, Part 1: The Pisces Top

One of the items I purchased from the Trina Turk collection that Banana Republic recently released was the Pisces top.  I had thought about getting it in the warm combination (pinks, oranges and yellows), but decided on the cool version (turquoises, greens, blues, etc…) as it was more of a contrast than a compliment on […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Loot

Some of the Banana Republic stores hosted an after 5 event to celebrate the launch of their Trina Turk collaboration where people got to shop for the looks as well as enjoy some delicious refreshments.  The collection of brightly coloured, resort-inspired pieces includes a very good selection of petite sizing, including tops, skirts (well, skirt […]
