Had a look in Laura Petites the other day! I'm always really excited to visit a store (in this case, half a store) dedicated to petite-sized clothing. Nothing in particular struck my eye on this visit, though. Their sizing seems quite large for a petite line: there was a lot of extra fabric pinned together at the back in order to fit the mannequins.
I also saw many patterns that were busy and printed quite large. This can look very overwhelming on petites, especially for those of us on the smaller end of the petite spectrum.
Another trend in the store was rhinestones. I try to avoid rhinestones as they can look childish or matronly; neither classic nor fashion-forward. But if you realllly love rhinestones, at least aim for a simpler fabric that doesn't include a busy printed pattern.
There are rhinestones on the top pictured above, and here's a sampling of even more. I felt like they were everywhere I looked in this store!
The pricing is reasonable and I would consider giving these a try-on if I spotted them in the store, but I wouldn't order online as sizing is risky and there's a high likelihood of needing to exchange or return. Overall, this is not a store I would frequent as there aren't many options for my style or body type.
