Herringbone Jacket

OMG!!!  How terrific is this Herringbone Jacket …and I got it for $41! I know! I know! I said I’d be focused on refreshing my CURRENT closet and not buy too many new pieces.  But how could I leave this fab piece behind!?   Look at it!! How great it is!   I’m only human people! 🙂 Typically being…

Navy Polka-Dots: 2 Looks

In an effort to curb my shopping addiction, I’ve been trying very hard to dig deep into my current closet and rediscover the lovely pieces that I already have and come up with new refreshing ways to wear them. This is one of the first “everyday” dresses I bought a few years ago.  A simple sheer…

#Dusted

Here we go…the first post- NYE-party invite in January! My friend Randy Kahlon, one of the three masterminds and DJs of  DustyStarr Productions, will be spinning big tunes all night to launch the opening of a new restaurant in the Beaches: Atelier Bistro Lounge. Style Code in effect – woot! woot!  I haven’t decided on an outfit just…

Best. Pants. Ever!

Ok friends … I dunno about y’all but I have a heck of a time finding pairs of pants that fit just right! Being petite…short…at 5’2, nearly any pair I try on and get ready to purchase ($) will most certainly need to be taken to a tailor/dry cleaner for a proper hem ($$), and possibly other alterations ($$$) before it can be incorporated…

Fur Vests – Yay or Nay?

Most times I believe one should wear whatever feels good or YOU think makes you look good, regardless of the ‘rules’ or opinions of others.  Often when I’m unsure I’ll take a quick iPhone pic and send it around to a few close gfs for a vote: Yay or Nay … before exiting a change room.  Thank you Ladies…

Winter Coats

Ok – Toronto weather this winter has been madness! From my window, I would wake up to lightly frosted window panes and snow-covered rooftops, and begin to think “Do I really have to wear winter boots today…le sigh” (that’s french for sigh). Between freak ice storms, drops in temperatures to -40 by midday to a…

Peplum, Pencil Skirt and Pink Pumps

A peplum top and a pencil skirt are two pieces, when paired together, can never go wrong! Especially helpful for plus sized divas, as it cinches in at the waist and helps create an hourglass shape. Photo credits: Tami Falus   The classic black and white combo with a loud splash of colour with the…

What is petite?

The term “petite” is commonly misunderstood. Many people believe that petite = short and slim and skinny. But this is far from the truth. Weight has nothing to do with being petite. It’s actually your HEIGHT that determines if you fall into the “petite” category. In fashion/clothing, petite is a standard clothing size designed to…

Welcome to Petite Plus, Meow!

Hiya friends! For the last few years now I’ve learned and managed to embrace my plus sized-busty-vertically challenged bod with zeal by making sure I “dress with style” for everyday, regardless of having an occasion! Many people have suggested, even urged, for me to start blogging about my fashion finds and looks that I put…
