All the way from UK – The Carmen by Jeetly Petite

Wahoo! Royal Mail has arrived!

All the way from UK – The Carmen – I fell in love with the Carmen the moment I saw it at Jeetly Petite. I own a similar style in pink from bebe, but it’s not so great of a blouse for the workplace. You can always count on Jeetly, though, for your “This isn’t college anymore (or entry level)” wardrobe – not to mention I’m huge fan of their bold colors with bow ties!

Jeetly Petite is an emerging online petite retailer based out of the UK making quality petite apparel perfect for any tanchi’s workplace attire. They are perfect for the tanchi in her 20s – going from entry-level to mid-career professional. It’s that stage in your life when NY&Co. and fast-fashion isn’t cutting it anymore but your not in your 30s yet – ready for the Ann Taylor and Express fashions. Jeetly Petite garments have it all in quality– construction, style, material, and fit. It is a price point value worth every penny! Right now the Carmen and others are on sale – get them while you can! They truly live up theirs claims of being chic and classy, no tailoring necessary, giving a confident look, and using smart tailoring.

With Jeetly Petite, not only will you get a great product for it’s price but because they are garments made especially for petites – no alterations are required and the fit is impeccable on the tanchi body – especially the panza region. When the Carmen arrived, I didn’t have to wait to schedule my shoot until alteration were done because I put it on and it fit perfectly! Is this really happening?

It’s so lovely. The feminine details such as an oversized neck bowtie and the satin wrapped button on the cuffs. Such a marvelous piece to put on! A word of caution, though — as silky and soft as the garment is – it is also delicate. It absorbs body sweat easily and I highly recommend saving it for the Fall or Winter season.

For such a feminine piece – I paired it with a more masculine look, staying in line with Fall 2013 trends. To achieve the fem/masculine look I wore black high-waisted bebe trousers and white suspenders I got ages ago from Wet Seal.

Suspenders are a favorite accessory of mine to wear to the work place – very fashion forward, yet professional. And yet again, my go-to choice for fashion is bebe because it does everything right. They even make high-waisted pants that are fab in style and fit for the tanchi (even with a panza)!

For shoes I picked a slightly higher kitten heel high by Steve Madden – plain black closed toed heels. Topped off with accessories – an Anne Klein silver watch and bebe black and white purse – making for the complete “This isn’t College Anymore (or entry-level)” look.

I mean, a new dress doesn’t get you anywhere; it’s the life you’re living in the dress, and the sort of life you had lived before, and what you will do in it later.” – Diana Vreeland.

Vreeland and Jeetly Petite share this mindset- a garment is worth a thousand words and This isn’t college anymore so make sure to take care of the scrunchy bottom looks!. A Scrunch can make all the difference – keep it classy with smart tailoring (and in San Diego) – the only kind you’ll find at Jeetly Petite.

Shopping tips:
1. I purchased a size 14 (equivalent to a Large) in the Carmen because with petite apparel I always go one size up plus one more for UK and European companies.
2. The price for the Carmen plus delivery comes out to $65.54 in dollars. All pricing is in pounds but you can use Dollars2pounds to help convert.
3. You may get a fraud alert call from your credit card company if you have never purchased overseas.

Thanks Bianca for a great shoot!
