Fashion and beauty blog for the more mature woman not ready to hang up the high heels yet.



Hi everyone, Have you heard of Precis Petite? I don't know how many of my followers out there are counted as petite? Any woman under the height of 5'3 is classed as petite and that includes me (I'm 5'2) I have been buying from precis since 1999 (wow, yes yonks ago!) They are a fantastic high end label, superb tailoring, and great for that special occasion little number. I have kept the jacket on trend wearing pleather skinny's and fashionable statement jewellery.

This Jacket I bought in 1999 for a special event, still comes out from time to time and has never looked dated. One of the things I notice most is the fitting on the waist, it's where it should be!. I worked along side a Precis Petite concession a few years back. I remember when their deliveries arrived I couldn't wait to see what new stock came in, I think I drove the staff mad!
I have invested in a fair few items of Precis Petite, a great suit, again the tailoring is great and it's classic. Their trousers are fantastic, always in beautiful material and well cut, I have pink,red,black,and cream, But it is the jackets I love most because they are so classic,they can be made to look smart for day and you can dress them up for night. See below the ones I have my eye on at the moment

This Apple Green jacket is gorgeous I would wear this with navy or white click HERE to find

This is what I know I need in my wardrobe (being practical!) Blazers can be a little too boxy for me, I like the way this accentuates the waist a little. Find it HERE

  2. I love the jacket on you, I am far from petite in length myself as 5,57 (170 cm), but I have such a petite body building (54 kg ish) naturally with eating normal that I'm often considered very small, at least here in Norway where the average male is 5,9 (179,9 cm) and female 5,5 (167,1) cm) ^^

    1. Thank you for your comment Kinkx, the Precis brand also have a sister company called Planet (www, It's the same designs made for the taller woman if that helps. I wish I was taller, it's a pain in the backside sometimes!

  3. Great choices!! I love the green blazer. I am 5' 9" so not petite. But I love the wrap dress you are wearing. You look great in the blazer you are wearing, love the cut/shape.

    Thank you for participating in Turning Heads Tuesday!
