I wanted to write a post about all things related to the high-waisted pencil skirt.

As you can see from the post at Bella Petite, this fashion trend can work on petites as well: “Luckily, high-waisted pants and skirts were practically made for us. What is so great about bottoms that hug the waist is that it elongates the rest of the body by drawing the eye downward starting at the hips”  On this post you can find  three different examples of below-the-knee, high-waisted pencil skirts and how to make them work:. …read more

Ways to make a ring smaller

Hi everyone!  One of my biggest fashion woes is not finding jewelry to fit my tiny hands.

Here are some tips and tricks I’ve seen to re-size rings that are too big for small or skinny fingers.
1. Buying ring sizers, here are a few places to find em’
http://www.ringsnuggies.com/ (they sell these at Walmart and Claire’s) or you can buy it here
A piece of advice for the ring snuggies is to  heat it up to make it more flexible. You can place them in hot or boiling water and this will make em’ more pliable and easier to fit.
2. Use tape (foam tape, as shown here is best .…see Extra Petite’s demo below for more!)
3. Use nail polish- Never tried this but it seems a bit messy.
4. Use Thread- Just wrap it around a few times.  If you do this, be sure to buy invisible thread…yes! there is such a thing.  Or you can use fishing line as well if you a family member likes to fish.

25 Ways to Wear a Scarf in 4.5 Minutes

We love Wendy Nguyen’s style. The petite fashion blogger is 5′ tall and wears a size 5 shoe making her a great inspiration for petite fashion lovers.

On her fashion style:

“Everything I’ve learned about style and fashion is by observing nature, architecture, music, and people.  Nature encourages me to play with colors, architecture helps me to understand shapes, music provides a gateway for me to hear and feel texture, and most importantly, I get inspired by street fashion.  In terms of style, I relate most to Chiara Ferragni, Rumi Neely, Olivia Palermo, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.”
