Classically Feminine

There’s just something about wearing pink that just makes me feel pretty!  Pink lace, to me, just screams “classically feminine”. I picked up this dress from Forever21+ with frost still on the ground and have been dying to make it work for a summertime office look.  How cute are these sleeves!??!   Love them so!…

Black Summer Prints

I usually try and avoid wearing too much black … especially in the summer.  But there are a number of fun black-summertime-prints that I just couldn’t resist! This hi-lo maxi dress (Target) has been with me for a few summers now – don’t look too closely, as you’ll see the black bits fading due to…

Vintage Gypsy Cabaret?

I was at it again, representing with the Toronto Vintage Society at last weekend’s Electro Swing night-o-fun … looking for Best Dressed guy and gal.   This time the theme was: Vintage Gypsy Cabaret.    My immediate reaction was…..Whaaat!?!  This made me dig deep when coming up with an appropriate look to match my TVS Sistas.

Speed Dating with 25Dates.com

Rainy Day Office OOTD

Rainy Hump Day in Toronto … which led me to put together this multi-patterned fresh office look of navy and white + a combination of polka dots, stripes and paisley.  Yup – three patterns, one outfit.  AND White Pants!!!  Crazytown, I know!  🙂 At first glance, the outfit looks pretty monochromatic and simple.  Navy button-up…

OOTD: Sea Foam Swirls

I have to admit, this past weekend with the release of Orange is the New Black season 2 on Netflix, I’ve been anti-social… or rather ‘selectively social’.  In my defence I haven’t been feeling in tip top shape …and what better way to regain ones umph than by marathoning episodes of a fantastic show like…

Custom Suiting – Thoughts?

Most of what I like to do on Petite Plus, Meow! is to write posts featuring “what I did” and “what I wore“.  Occasionally I’ve spoken about other topics, one in particular is how disappointing it is to see a handsome & eligible bachelor who’s wearing crumbled pants and a hoodie.  Even more rare, apparently…
