Hello! Happy Monday and hello to a new week! I’m super excited to do a try-on and share some new pieces that I got in from my latest Short Story Box. I discovered Short Story Box around this time last year and loved the fact that there was a styling delivery service catering specifically to petite women! I’m 5′ tall and over the years, have found a small selection of shops / brands that work for me, but it’s always exciting to discover something new! Short Story Box pulls from both well-known and emerging brands, and even has a few exclusive petite lines of their own. Sizing ranges from 00P to 18P cause Short Story also knows that being petite is all about proportions!
Each Short Story Box comes with 5 pieces that are handpicked from a stylist — I especially love that they send you a preview beforehand where you can vote yay/nay on whether to have it included in your box. It makes for a much higher chance of liking everything that shows up and gives me something to look forward to!
So, let’s get on with the 4 outfits that I put together from my latest Short Story Box!
OUTFIT 1: CAMI + SLIP SKIRT
Top: Petite Principle Cowl Cami Bodysuit (S)
This satin cowl cami bodysuit is a stunner. I absolutely love the mauve-y purple color and the satin material makes it a great piece that can be dressed up for a special occasion! Cowl necks can be hit or miss on me since they can sometimes gape too much, but this one was just right. Plus, the adjustable straps made the cami easy to tweak to suit how I like it to drape!
OUTFIT 2: LACE CAMI + PLEATED MIDI SKIRT
Both top and bottom here were found in my Short Story Box and together it makes such a cute combo! For starters, I cannot get over the lace details on the cami and that cheetah animal print!! I don’t have anything like it and it’s such a nice variation from the typical prints.
And omg, this pleated skirt is beautiful and the subtle metallic material really makes it stand out. The elastic waistband ensures a comfortable fit and even the skirt length is perfect for pairing with booties!
OUTFIT 3: STRIPED JUMPSUIT
Jumpsuit: sold out, shop similar jumpsuits from Petite Principle
Jumpsuits are my go-to when I need an easy outfit that looks put together but not overly dressed up. The slightly cropped pant legs make it perfect for pairing with heels or flats and bonus points for having pockets too!
OUTFIT 4: CARDIGAN + STRAIGHT JEANS
Now for something more casual! Both the cardigan and jeans were in my Short Story Box, and these are a testament to what a petite fit can do even for a basic outfit. I love that the cardigan comes in a more shrunken fit and the olive green color is one that I’ve wanted to wear more of as well. I’ve actually been loving the trend of wearing a cardigan as a top, and the petite fit on this one meant that I could tuck it into the jeans without any excess bulk!
I also took a chance on these jeans when I saw them in my shipment preview, and omg LOVE! Straight leg jeans can be hard to find when you have short legs like me (a full-length inseam is 25″ for me), and this pair hits me right at the ankle where I prefer! I actually love that these don’t have any distressing so I can wear them to the office on casual Fridays.
