I took a chance and ordered this cross front top and I love the flattering drape in size XXS. I’ve been able to try a few new brands since shopping more at Marshalls and T.J. Maxx. I washed it once thus far since it arrived with some dirt on one shoulder due to a tear in the package I received. If it continues to wash well I might consider getting it in another color especially if it goes on sale elsewhere where it’s available in other colors.

I finally got the popular Amazon coat in size 2XS since the Sam Edelman version (review here) was too oversized on me in size XS. It runs true to size with room to layer. I leave the side zippers partially unzipped for more room through the hips since I need to bend down often and I didn’t want to bust the seams. It’s a thicker puffer coat but with temperatures in the 20’s (Fahrenheit) and single or negative windchill it can still feel a bit chilly if you are not wearing a warm layer underneath. I love the generous hood lined in fleece. I wore the coat when it raining last week while walking Ralphie and it didn’t soak through. The measurements of size 2XS are as follows: 41″ chest, 24″ sleeve length, 43″ around the bottom hem (with the sizes unzipped) and 31″ total length. For size reference I am 5′ 2.5″ and my weight fluctuates between 108-114 pounds. I have been watching the coat for a while and the lowest price I’ve seen it was for around $89 a few weeks ago but it’s usually priced at $149.99. For example, it’s on Lighting Deal for $127.49 today. I am eyeing this pretty coat since the buckles and long straps look like bows and I hope it will be offered in size XXS or size XS next season.

I still need to sell the Sam Edelman coat and once I dry clean it I will list it on in my closet on Poshmark. It was very similar to the Amazon coat but it doesn’t have the ribbon tassels on the zipper pulls and it doesn’t have a hidden inner pocket at the chest.

I had to try this dress after seeing the pink color on my friend Annie (she has it in multiple colors to wear at home for nursing). I tried size XS and size S and I prefer the size up since the sleeves are very snug and the chest is also snug which can show bra lines. It’s a soft and comfortable casual dress and the v-neck isn’t too low.

I got this pajama set after seeing it in Wendy‘s Instagram stories and she is a fellow petite influencer. It’s good quality, fits well and I like that the 29″ inseam doesn’t drag on the floor. I am tempted to order another set in a different color. This pajama set would be a thoughtful gift idea for anyone.

How adorable is this embroidered mini hearts pajama matching top and bottom? I found them Marshalls for much less than original retail. The top is $29.99 instead of $128 and pants are $29.99 instead of $138. I’m wearing size XS (please ignore the size that I mentioned in the video) for a relaxed fit.

I received this flecked sweater which I exchanged for a smaller size but I don’t like the closer fit so I plan to return it. I was disappointed in the fit of my recent LOFT order (reviewed here). I’m waiting for another good sale to order some other new arrivals that I’ve been eyeing.

I also received this puff shoulder top which I had exchanged for a size up and size XS regular fits more like size XS petite. The cuffs are snug and don’t have much give so it may be uncomfortable at the forearms for some.

Lastly, my latest ThredUP Clean Out bag (4 out of the 26 items I sent in have sold thus far) I submitted back in early November was finally processed on 2/18 and the listings are available for purchase on their website (you can read more about the Clean Out process here). You may find my reviews of some of the more recent items I sent in linked to this Pinterest board which is organized by retailer.
