The Tiny Heart: Leather, Burgundy, & Stripes

10.23.2013

Leather, Burgundy, & Stripes




Xhilaration Cutout Dress (worn as skirt), Top-Forever 21 (similar Forever 21 Striped Tee), Jacket-Target (similar JCPenney Faux Leather Jacket), Necklace-Forever 21, Booties-c/o Andres Machado (similar Heeled Ankle Booties)

I decided to wear my Target Burgundy Dress as a skirt, since it's getting too chilly for the cut out. But the burgundy color is perfect for the fall so I'm still hoping to get plenty wear out of it. This look was inspired by an outfit from Wendy's Lookbook, minus the leopard.

Trying to find petite shoes is as challenging as finding the right actor to cast as Christian Grey. I wear a size 4, which is pretty much impossible to find in a store. I am thrilled that I discovered the Andres Machado brand (sold by alonai.com in the US). They have a huge selection of petite shoes sizes 2 to 5 at very reasonable prices. (They aren't paying me to say this, I just want to share with my fellow petites!).

PS I've added some fall/winter items to the Shop My Closet page!

  22. I love your shoes! It's tough to find tiny grown up clothes and accessories, so it's good to know who offers them at good prices.

  32. It did get drastically cold awfully quick! Love the burgundy with the stripes!
    I imagine it must be so tough to find shoes! What a pain, and I thought I had it bad with my wide feet.
    Glad you've got a new resource for cute shoes!

  33. I never have good luck with turning dresses into skirts. My sweaters are never the right length.

  38. Hey Sharon, you have on heels! They suit you well. I've been sick earlier in the week and got tons of bedrest and tonight not one bit sleepy, plus I keep coughing so that is disturbing my sleep. So might as well take advantage of the time!
