Share Finally, a luxury line has arrived for petite women 5’5″ and below. The 16th Bar, led by 4’11″ designer Frankie Ortiz, presented its debut collection in Los Angeles late last year. Currently only available online, but with plans to open brick and mortar stores, the collection consists of skirts, dresses and jackets and features [...]

Isn’t this bag gorgeous? Looks vintage, doesn’t it? The bag is by Sneha Varma and was purchased at the Toronto Fashion Incubator/Stylicity event held at Hazelton Lanes at Fashion’s Night Out, and it was my only actual purchase.

If you follow DelectablyChic! on Instagram, you might have seen a recent picture, taken of a Kate Spade bag that dates back to 2004-ish. That bag has been sitting in my old closet back at my parents’ place, not seeing the light of day since 2005. I loved that bag. It was cute and different, [...]
ShareUPDATE: Looks like it’s a typo. I just got a note from the people at Ted Baker who said that the model is actually 5’10″. Too bad. It would have been nice to see a non-celebrity petite model! Diverse body types should encompass EVERY SIZE, including height, not just curvier women! This is the first [...]
ShareThis month’s Petite Fashion Challenge hosted by Easy Petite Looks asks us to: IMPRESS OUR DATES (i.e. put an outfit together for “date night” with the significant other or a girls’ night out). The outfit below, purchased at White House Black Market at a recent trip to Rochester (my first time at the store!), this [...]
ShareI know, I know, it sounds like I’m just doing what everyone else is, but after 5 1/2 years, I feel that Shorty Stories is getting a little tired, even after moving it from Blogger to WordPress.
