White eyelet

Last week I mentioned having taken advantage of Loft's half off sale, and one of the items I purchased was this eyelet button down. I absolutely love how it's a little risqué, with it's unlined eyelet panels. Since my regular size wasn't available, I decided to order a petite medium, which fits well, aside from it's inherent boxiness (which some reviewers mentioned). I was amazed at how the hemline of the shirt does not fall well past my hips, and how the cuffs of the sleeves don't hit my knuckles.

Even though I'm 5'2", I rarely shop petites. For most places the availability and variety isn't there, plus I am only petite in stature, which usually means I have to size up from what I would normally wear, but not always. Things become more complicated when petite sizes are only online, leading to me avoiding them all together. However, in this instance, it was nice to have the option, so thanks Loft.

  5. What a gorgeous top! I think it's always hard ordering online since you can't try the item on and it's a crapshoot.

  17. This blouse is so pretty! I have something similar from Joe Fresh, but I like how the eyelet differs from panel to panel.

    I only do petite for pants as it usually means I don't have to hem them. I too am only petite in stature and really only on the bottom half.

  18. Petite shopping can be such a pain. I almost never bother anymore because even if a store does offer petites, it's usually a micro-collection that isn't available in store. Sigh. There are times when I think I should stop engaging in this self-defeating behaviour, especially when I see someone like you wearing such a perfectly proportionned petite blouse. And the eyelet! So lovely.

  28. This top looks great on you! I ordered this top and it just did not fit good on my body. I am 5'4 and do not shop at petite section either. I am more comfortable in regular sizing even if the sleeves are a little long.

  29. This is the most beautiful summer blouse, Lydia, I love it!
    I am not sure up to which height "petite" sizes go but with my 5'4 I only order them when the normal size is no longer available. I have hips and petite sizes are usually too tight for a female figure.

    Have a lovely weekend,
