Oh, gosh...
Don't worry about it It's always nice to start dressing in a classy way when you're younger, it gives you practice looking put together and makes people take you more seriously.

Loft has great clothes for petites. I can only wear petites in pants and XS in tops. I'm 47 and I buy most of my clothes from The Gap, or Loft. I do like banana Republic too but only buy there whenthey have big sales (too pricey). I have bought from Talbots but have a hard time finding things that don't make me look older. I can find things on occasion at Marshall's also.
I don't like the quality at Old Navy. I only buy jeans at the Gap, Loft has good trousers. Retailers tend to ignore petite size women the most. It is kind of sad!

Not sure anybody would look good in that ^^^

I like Anthropologie but some of the dresses are too short, and I can't afford the stuff any way.

I have a few mint-condition vintage shirtwaist dresses that I just love. In fact, people often ask if they are expensive items from current designers. They're just simple dresses, but they are made so well.

Ross

consignment stores
vintage clothing stores
designer trunk shows
Anthropologie
Madewell
French Connection
Macy's
Nordstrom
Nordstrom Rack
Neiman Marcus
NM Last Call (Neiman Marcus Clearance)

Off Fifth (Saks Outlet and Clearance)
Bloomingdales
H&M
ASOS
Zara
modcloth.com
modaoperandi.com
shopstyle.com
eBay
etsy
bluefly.com
hautelook.com (a Nordstrom company)
and more that I can't think of right now

Yes, I read some book about French style. They know how to combine items from different price points to come off looking stylish.

Modcloth is so much fun! I've also found some neat stuff in the Pyramid Collection catalog. I've also found some interesting stuff in the Victorian Trading catalog, but not stuff I would wear every day.

My mom is the most stylish near 60 woman I know. Since she was in her 40s she shopped at Ann Taylor, Bloomingdales, and Talbots.
