fifthofjuly 's Thoughts:

When you’re tiny like I am (152cm / 5’), nearly nothing regular sized fits. The number of tank tops I have sitting in my closets that require the layering over a tube bra is a bit… much.

I know most people mourn over gaining a clothing size, but being an XS really does limit your choices..

i love this outfit. i totally agree with you on being tiny. i'm an inch shorter than you and it sucks finding the sizes for my body. especially finding jeans and pants that actually fit me =/

thanks dear! Yeah finding clothes is such a pain. I've found that shopping in the kids section can be a great thing though, especially since they tend to be cheaper too! ;)

I know exactly what you're talking about, I'm pretty small myself. Nothing just fits well, everything is bit loose etc., etc... But you seem to overcome every trouble with this outfit. Great style! :)

Thank you dear! :) Yes, exactly. For me getting stuff meant for the local market isn't so bad (cos we're all a bit smaller on this side of the world), but when it comes to European and American brands, gosh even the smallest size is loose! :(

I love the bandeau-shoe pattern combo. wow, you're the first person who I've seen who has actually been able to pull off wedges (I've always hated them for some odd reason).

I think I made the decision to buy both around the same time, and it was totally cos of the pattern! :D I think wedges are okay, but I hate cork wedges usually. These were too nice though!

this is stunning (: it doesn't look like your 5' at all!! i too am short (5' 1.5"), but unfortunately am not as thin as you are so i look even shorter :( it is difficult to find clothes that aren't too long, but i think the high waisted trend definitely helps us :)
fifthofjuly
fifthofjuly on July 16
Thank you! The wedges help! They're 4", so altogether I'm.. 5'4"! XD I love heels cos of the extra height. Yeah I used to hate high waists, but I've realised that they do help lengthen the legs.. good for me too cos my legs aren't as long as I'd like. (we all wish for longer legs don't we..)

Thanks! Actually, I never thought I'd wear high-waisted jeans.. and then this pair came along. It's just a really really nice pair.

They were new on GoJane! Saw that they actually had size 5 and had to snatch it! XD

omg I totally feel you on the size thing cuz I'm 5 feet tall too...if I can I usually alter my bra straps and tank tops.
fifthofjuly
fifthofjuly on July 16
Yay I'm not the only one suffering from 5' tall syndrome! XD I'd alter my tank tops, but especially when they're plain, I don't feel that it's worth the trouble.

love the shoes dear!!!! im quite petite myself and moreso, im on the heavier side, which makes it even harder to find nice clothes that actually fit perfectly. shirts become dresses, capris are pants. but oh well, there are subtle ways to make things work.. i really love this bra-tanktop going on here. really works for you! :D chic!
fifthofjuly
fifthofjuly on July 16
Tell me about the shirts becoming dresses! Happens all the time! Nowadays whenever I want a dress, I don't shop in the dress section anymore, I shop for tunics! The only problem is that then the bust area hangs too low and then.. the need for a tube bra.

I'm a bit on the shorter size (5'3") but I'm not exactly tiny, though I do encounter a few problems, especially with pants. I love your shoes!!
fifthofjuly
fifthofjuly on July 16
Pants. They're always at least 5" too long for me. I think my mom's about the same height as you, and she has problems with pants too, so I can imagine!
