Loving this #cute new cropped #trench that I picked up @forever21. Also new post #ontheblog with my @loft #fittingroom #tryons from yesterday. #linkinprofile #liketkit #f21xME #f21 #forever21 #instaANN #anntaylor #loveLOF

I love this cropped trench  when I tried it on in stores so I bought it on the spot. It definitely needed a good steaming but once the wrinkles came out it looks even better. I’ve been trying not to place Forever 21 orders on a whim by going in stores to check things out because their sizing is so inconsistent.  I paired this trench with my new favorite stripeblock shirtdress from LOFT but it looks really cute with jeans and a shirt (see here). See size S on fellow petites: Stylish Petite, Style On Friday and Caramel Covered Everything.

Size S measurements:

14.5″ shoulders
19.5″ chest (when buttoned)
22.”5 along the bottom hem (when buttoned)
12″ arm circumference (here is how I measure the sleeve circumference)
19″ sleeve length
21″ total length

Here is how the @forever21 cropped trench looks like on (wearing size S). Plus the true color is better represented in this picture. 👯 #liketkit #f21xME #f21 #forever21 #instaANN #anntaylor #loveLOFT #stripe #dress

Don’t forget to free the functional pockets on the cropped trench. I love the back venting.

I stopped by the store on the way home today for the Ann Taylor Friends & Family event and got this mini daisy flare dress for 40% off. I tried it on two weeks ago in 0P but I got 00P today since I found the fit more flattering even though both sizes are very similar in the pictures. I love the slimming, feminine silhouette of this dress. I also wanted the dotted chiffon ruffle shell as recommended by Stylish Petite but I couldn’t find it in petites at my local store.

Size 00P measurements:

13.25″ shoulders
32″ bust (measured pit to pit)
28″ empire waist (fabric has some stretch to it)
34″ total length

Update 7/19 – Care Instructions: Despite the care tag
stating dry clean, I decided to wash the dress on cold in a intimates
bag and air dried it without any mishap.

I'm loving this #cute @anntaylor mini daisy flare #dress (wearing size 00P). It's very slimming and #feminine the way it skims your figure. It's also a super fun dress to twirl in. 😁👯 Review #ontheblog a few posts back. #linkinprofile @liketo

Lastly, I tried the code I received for Banana Republic‘s Friend & Family event (March 12-15) but I was disappointed to discover that the code only worked on some of the jeans on my wishlist. I wonder if the exclusions are different in stores and I guess I’ll find out this weekend. Please check out my recent review of two of their premium denim styles here.


Thanks for reading!
