As the title of this the blog states, I’m a petite curvy girl.  I stand at just around 5 foot 2 inches.  I weigh anywhere between 155 and 185 depending on how much time I make for the gym.  Typically, I wear between a size 8 and a size 12 petite.

So, as an avid fashion blog reader for years, I’ve found myself frequently frustrated when I’ve tried to recreate fashionable outfits or when I’ve gone to stores hoping to try on something I’ve seen on someone on another website only to find that it doesn’t fit correctly, or they don’t even make it in a size that will fit someone with my figure.  I know that there are hundreds or thousands of other women out there with my figure who must also face this problem.  So I’m starting this blog to document my search for clothes that fit.  I’m a young professional living in Chicago and I’m hoping to use this blog and the experiences of others to help build a wardrobe that works.

Finally, I’d like to say that I’ve been inspired by blogs like Extra Petite who wrote posts about her own struggle to find clothes to fit her figure and has a wonderful blog.  I also highly recommend Alterations Needed.   Each of these women show that finding clothing for petites is possible, and inspired me to take it a step further in the search for curvy petite clothing.
