CHECKED JACKET in sand/blue $22.99 size 13-14
Finally, my hubby and I have the same day off to take some blog photos. Sometimes I would walk by the Zara girls section because kids clothes length are just right for us petite girls. For me, girls clothes is a hit or miss. Sometimes, even if it fits, it doesn't look right. Or at times, the colors are too childlike (ie. bright pink, neon green). But, this winter, I found a few jackets I love from Zara girls. I was rather shocked that I ended up wearing a size 9-10 for the grey quarter jacket. But, I guess that jacket runs large. 3 jackets for $70 was such a good deal! If you are petite too, check Zara girls out :) Girls clothes cutting tends to be different but with jackets, skirts, and leggings/skinny pants, girls clothes are perfect for us petites. Stay warm this winter girls!
For reference: I'm 5'2.

Months ago, I did a post on the DVF Zarita dress since I got lucky and bought the dress on sale. I recently found a cheaper, and possibly better alternative to the DVF dress. I have received many complements on this dress and have worn it many times for special events. My husband almost never recognize a dress I wear more than once. But, with this dress, he was shockingly able to recall all the times I've worn it and where I wore it to. So perhaps, this gorgeous dress is memorable?
DVF Zarita Dress from old blog post
RIGHT: Diane Von Furstenberg 'Zarita' $348
-Adrianna Papell Long Sleeve Lace Sheath Dress --> 34" (petite), 36" (regular)
-DVF Zarita --> 33.5" (no petite size available)
-Adrianna Papell Long Sleeve Lace Sheath Dress --> 56% rayon, 44% nylon
- DVF Zarita --> 70% rayon, 30% nylon
Both rayon and nylon are cheaper alternative to silk. So both dresses will drape well. However, rayon ages poorly compared to nylon. Many rayon products yellow with age and pill or form small balls and areas of roughness where the fabric is most heavily worn.
3. Price:-Adrianna Papell Long Sleeve Lace Sheath Dress --> $158
- DVF Zarita --> $348
1. Cutting, drape, color selection, V back, neck line, sleeve length, zip closure, lined, both needs to be dry cleaned.
