Lampshading

As my fellow petites can probably relate, it can be incredibly difficult to find a sweater dress that doesn’t completely overwhelm my frame. Sweaterdresses that you see online are usually worn by models who are around 5’10. Meaning, what hits them at mid-thigh, probably hits me at mid-calf. Not a great look. I eventually gave up trying to find a true sweaterdress and started widening my search for a longer length sweater that might work as a dress. Even this turned out to be quite the challenge, but I finally came across a sweater that would allow me to do, what is called, “lampshading”.

This sweater also looks great with pants. Ha.

I love the color of this particular sweater I found at Aritzia. While a little bit itchy for my wool-sensitive skin, it is not overly irritating over the right layer.

If this sweater is out of your price range, I found some other alternatives that look petite-friendly:

On a side note, I finally decided to make a blog-dedicated Instagram account (@cher_dressedaccordingly). I figured people might be getting tired of all my dog- and food-related posts. I’m really enjoying the new IG account, as I feel more comfortable using pictures that are more “free-style” poses. Of course, you are all still also welcome to follow my personal account (@ch3r_m). Hut if you would like to follow something a bit more style-oriented, my new account is probably a better bet.
