Reformation is one of my absolute favorite brands for petite dresses. I find that they run small in general and they have a huge petite selection which is incredible. I also love their commitment to sustainability and their fabrics always feel so luscious on my body. If I'm looking to feel uber feminine, sexy, and flirty this is my go to brand. This particular dress was not in a petite option when I bought it but I loved the print so much I ordered it anyway. I did have it hemmed about an inch and a half. Originally it hit me right above the knee and It felt just a little too conservative. Here are some things that made this dress work for me from a petite perspective. First, it is a full wrap dress. I find wrap dresses are one of my favorite styles because I can cinch in the waist and adjust the fit slightly. I do pay attention to necklines because if it doesn’t fit properly in the torso you can end up with a wardrobe malfunction and no one wants that. Any easy fix is to hand sew a small snap or hook where both sides of the neckline meet above the bust. Thankfully this Reformation dress fit me well in every way but the length so that wasn’t necessary. I felt like this was very femine and a little retro. The color and pattern give it just enough of an edge. I kept it very simple and streamlined with nude sandals and vintage drop earrings. My aunt was an antique dealer (now retired) and gave these earrings to me for my birthday one year and they are still my favorite pair of earrings that I own. I’m not a jewelry connoisseur by any means. I tend to wear pieces that are dainty and vintage looking. I love a good statement necklace as much as the next person but I always feel like they can be overwhelming on me. I am much more comfortable with small understated pieces. I’m a minimalist at heart and always go with the philosophy less is more.
