A white winter coat has been on my wish list for a while now. I came across this coat on the Zara website as I was browsing their post-holiday sales, and my eyes nearly popped out of my head. A bit fitted to the body, but still had a bit of a masculine feel. It was only last week that I was thinking that I was pretty proud of myself that I hadn’t purchased a coat in over a year, and then suddenly came to an abrupt end.
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”.
