I created Purely Petite as a way to show how petite women can dress despite most clothing being primarily designed for women above 5'5". I have been interested in fashion since I was eight years old and would spend my childhood days sketching outfits and wedding dresses in hope to create them in the future. Now twenty-one years old, I attend the University of California Riverside and am studying to receive a degree in Business and Finance and hope to utilize this degree for a career in the fashion world.
Fashion is not only a hobby of mine but a passion. What I love the most about fashion and style is that an outfit can display how you feel on a particular day–sexy, fierce, romantic, edgy–but can also showcase how you want others to see you whether that's bold, a risk-taker or relaxed. However, being petite can affect fashion choices since clothing is geared toward women of a taller height, the petite section can often be limited or boring and tailoring can be expensive. Purely Petite is a blog not only for petite women but for women of all shapes and sizes to display different trends and styles in various ways–saving and splurging.
