Boobs & Bra-blems

Did you know that 90% of women are wearing the wrong bra size!? 😮 Did you know that many women (myself included) also take several different bra sizes, depending on the shape, cut, fabric and brand of the bra. AND….did you know most women are not entirely symmetrical, meaning they may have uneven breasts! 😮 Your…

Asia: Clothes vs. Backpack

In exactly TWO Fridays, I’ll be at the airport on my way to the tropics to explore and live as beach bum for nearly a month with only the items I bring on my back – literally. With all my many flights and connections, I’ve decided NOT to check any luggage.  Which means, I’ve gotta come…

A New Year, A New Start

HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!!! This month (January 6th to be exact) Petite Plus, Meow! turns ONE YEAR old!  I’m truly humbled by the positive response the blog has gotten so far.  Thank you.

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…

Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy!

I’m a huge line-dancing fan!  Unfortunately there aren’t many places within Toronto that have line-dancing regularly or at all…which meant I’d have to wrangle like-minded folk and travel out to Oshawa or Georgetown (total opposite ends of the city via GO Train.  And upon finally getting there, cowboy hat, boots and all, I’m typically I’m…

We love flattering outfits, don’t we? Perhaps one of the most flattering styles in 2014 is the oversized top fashion. Oversized tops can look like dresses, they can be flowy blouses, or they can be chunky sweaters. You can wear them with only a few basics, or you can dress them up with accessories. Whether…

Statement Jewellery May Help You Network

My apologies for the long absence….. seems my day job and life have been keeping me from blogging.  But I’m back and ready to share some insights on some things I’ve observed whist being a more corporate fashionista the last week and a half.
