Shopping While Petite

Illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti

The average adult woman's height in the United States is about 5'4" inches. Which leaves a lot of us  confused and frustrated. Most of the times petite women are only left with one option, to hem or not to hem. One of my biggest challenges as a petite woman (5'4") is finding clothes that fit me correctly. Shopping for jeans is the biggest quest of all! Well fitting clothing is essential, it helps you appear taller and thinner. Besides, you never want to let the clothes wear you!


Ugly Sweater Season

Holiday parties, they're all the rage right now. Of course, with it being the holiday season, everyone wants to rendezvous and celebrate all the merriment that the past year has brought upon them and what better way to jubilate how happy you are whilst wearing your best "ugly" sweater?! The ugly sweater has fortified itself as a ritualistic piece in our wardrobes for the holiday season, and to think it all started with someone's grandmother gifting that first sweater to them! I have actually grown to love the ugly sweater movement, there's just something cute and quirky about them. The best thing about ugly sweaters, is the challenge to style them in a more elevated taste. No doubt that even the most atrocious of ugly sweaters can start a conversation from across the room with little to no styling, but that just isn't me!


Personal Essay #1

I knew I was different. In grade school, all the kids would ask me and my brother what we "were" and because of my naive innocence I thought it was cool to be like everyone else. I'd answer with supreme confidence and say, "I'm a girl just like you, with a cool complexion and frizzy hair." That wasn't enough for them, they wanted more, they wanted to dig deeper and figure out what exactly made me, me.


Casetify Your Holiday

You might remember me mentioning my collaboration with Casetify a few months ago. It is really fun to see your own work on popular mobile devices, I guess you really can turn your phone or tablet into works of art and in my case, walking portfolios! I have recently added some new designs in time for the holiday season... with a little gift to you!


Thanksgiving Appreciation

It's officially Thanksgiving, and as I put the finishing touches on a pretty decent attempt at a pumpkin pie, I can't help but reflect on all the things I am grateful for. This past year, has been the biggest emotional roller coaster for me, so many sad and unfortunate moments. If it had not been for the wonderful friends and family I have, I don't think that I would have handled it as gracefully as I have. Embrace Thanksgiving as an important reminder to extend thanks and gratitude to every day.
