By Paula Darnell:

"I'm petite - OK, short! So are my two daughters. Through the years, I've found many solutions to the problem that short women everywhere experience - how to find clothing that fits us! I'm here to share that knowledge with you. We'll look at fashion issues that affect petites - where to shop, petite-friendly trends (and some that aren't so friendly), fitting tips for petites, how to dress, celebrity petites, and much more. Although being petite has its challenges, it's rewarding to turn those challenges into opportunities. Fashion is fun! We all want to look great in our clothes, and it's my hope that this site will help you do just that."
