Hi! I’m Jess and welcome to Stylepint!

As a woman in her late 20s, it’s time to polish off the college casual attire and dress like a professional working woman. I’ve finally found what fits and flatters my petite frame but I’m still searching for my signature look and that’s where this blog comes in.

Stylepint started out as a way to share my adventures and misadventures as a petite shopping in the regular retail environment. From kids departments to thrift stores, I’ve scoured many places to uncover what works best for a petite. Sometimes there are triumphs and often there is heartbreak, but I’ve picked up some valuable tips along the way (and an awesome tailor) to make sure I’ll look my best no matter what situation arises. So follow along and let me know if there’s something on your mind that you’d like to share!

    Hello Jess!
    thank you for creating stylepint, where you can share your daily styles.
    I am also a petite gal but found that I had to always take -in or shorten what items i bought since I was not a cover model.

    Hi Jess! I stumbled upon your blog today because I was trying to decide if I should order a maxi dress or if it would make me look too schlumpy (I’m 5’3). I love your website and I love that you are as dedicated to streamlining and organizing your closet space as I am. Great tips. I also limit my number of hangers to 100 (it’s either 75 or 100; not sure). I can’t recommend tossing everything you have for Joyce Mangano huggable hangers (Target, Container Store; about $1/hanger). Reasons: (1) nothing slips off (yay!); (2) when all hangers look the same, the whole closet looks better (yay!); (3) the pants/skirts clips are removable, so you can adjust the number of hangers dedicated to the bottom half of your wardrobe (very cool). I look in my husband’s closet with his mish-mash of plastic and wire hangers and start to understand Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest (OK, that’s extreme, but still). Good thing we keep separate closets. :)

    Anyway, I love this website, and I’ll be checking in regularly. Thanks for your tips!

    Hello Jess,

    I came across your site while I was searching for information on A/X peplum jacket. I was so thrilled with your reviews, now your site is under my favorites! I am also a petite girl where I have to take in my clothes. And because of the prices in alteration, I begin to take in pants on my own…not professional but not too horrible =P. I just want to let you know I love your site.

    Cute site! My brother, Steven (whom I believe you know through your bf), referred me to your site. Love the features you do! Will definitely be checking in on this site periodically.

    I especially like your ‘crafting the perfect’ wardrobe piece. That’s definitely something I struggle with by not focusing on key pieces and just buying cheap pieces. Time to turn that around!

    Anyways, after Steven referred me – I told him I’d drop by the site! Hope to keep in touch!
