Posts Tagged ‘Petite Styling Trick

As a woman of 5’3″ I have to have a few styling tricks in my arsenal.  

Today I had the use for one, as this Kate & Mallory Maxi is the longest one I have. 

In fact even with 4″ wedges I found myself tripping on it when I walked…

I didn’t get the best photos before our Father’s Day Dinner and Movie…

My trick was to use a rubber band underneath the fabric at the empire waist line by gathering about 2 inches.

With the rubber band underneath against me skin there is no one who has to know the secret!  


Still not the best picture but you can clearly see that my feet are visible when before they were not.  

My husband is wearing the new olive shirt I bought him at Burlington and the new Izod light gray shorts from BJ’s. 

I have not ever been able to convince him to wear leather boat shoes for summer , so he has a few pairs of sneakers and this lighter creme pair with brown stripes are at least fashionable.  


I am grateful for knowing this rubber band trick and quickly being able to solve the issue of the too long dress. I’ve used in on shirts and am so happy that I now have a new way to use it…

I am grateful for my four awesome children and how amazingly perceptive and wise they all are. In conversations with them and hearing the now adults take on things, I am so impressed with them all! 

I am grateful for a day off as my insomnia reached “hell” levels and I took the day to just head back to bed and slept from noon till 4pm!  

I am grateful for a day to celebrate the father’s in my life and that over the years the pain of my father passing when I was just 13 has faded and I can fully embrace the day without sadness.
