Inspired by other bloggers I decided to jump on the blogging bandwagon in hopes of documenting my personal thoughts and journey in the challenging world of petite dressing from Toronto, Canada.

Gap review Part 2 - plus Banana Republic

Remember this review that I started a while ago?  Well my camera had died and I didn't finish my review.   Turns out I only had one item left to show LOL!  So I decided to include some items I ordered online through Banana Republic.

I picked up this mustard coloured cardigan that I LOVE but....(keep reading to see the 'but') :P

Long Cardigan:  Gap XS (I can't seem to find it online on either the Canadian or the US sites!)

So the "BUT" is that it's 100% Merino Wool and normally anything that has even 5% wool in it drive me crazy with itchiness!  For some reason this cardi is actually super soft!!  I did notice that when I tried it on another time it was a bit warmer and I felt a bit itchy, but not so much so that I wanted to tear my skin off.  So, even though it could potentially cause me some discomfort, I love the colour so much I'll just be sure to wear a shirt with sleeves under it.  (the things we do for fashion!)

Next up is a package of stuff I got from Banana Republic.

Both were fails as there were no petite sizing offered online, but I got lucky with some Gap and Old Navy stuff in XS I thought I would give it a try.

Top:  Banana Republic Silk Geo Print Top in XS (sold on on the Canadian site)

As you can see it's pretty much a tent on me!!!

Even a belt didn't help it out.

Too bad, because I really loved the details of this top:

The arm holes were WAY too big (you can see my bra, a BIG NO NO!)

I don't know what I was thinking but I also ordered a pair of non petite pants:

They are obviously way to big on me.  But surprisingly the waist seemed to stay up ok:

Way too baggy all over.

I also have another package from BR that came in today - it originally got lost (or someone stole it).  I have to say that the customer service was really great and helpful!   Based on my BR items above I don't have high hopes for what I ordered, but I guess you never know!
