Petite Secret Santa Exchange 2010!8:13 PM
I was so happy to be part of a Secret Santa gift exchange this year! It's my first one I've ever been a part of among the blogger rings, and it was a lot of fun sharing this with some of my favorite petite fashion bloggers. The idea was brought up on the Alterations Needed forum which is a great community of petite ladies who love talking about how their new purchases fit. Anyone who is 5'4" or under knows how invaluable this can be!
Jessy of The Little Dust Princess herded the exchange and did a lovely job managing it. Definitely check out her blog, since I've heard people tell me she's like my fashion double. We seem to have the same body type and I can see myself wearing just about everything she owns! She just wears more brogues and I wear more boots. ^_^
My Secret Santa ended up being Megan from the AN forums, who doesn't have a blog but she does hail all the way from Australia. If you follow my twitter you will know that I was totally stumped about a random package from Oregon without a return name and lo and behold, Megan had gotten a friend to send me my gift from the US!
It's the LOFT Petite Metallic Cable Sweater! I had been eyeing this sweater lately since my closet is rather slim on the "cable knit sweater" category of winter-wear this year. It's lovely and so warm!
Abercrombie kids grey skinny jeans size 10 (similar size 00 here)
Here's a close-up so you can see the little metallic threads woven into the sweater. It's quite shimmery in real life.
The sweater is currently on promotion for 50% off so I do recommend snagging it if you can. The sleeves are nice and slim but the torso is loose enough to layer comfortably underneath. The fabric breakdown of the one I received is 16% Cotton, 16% Nylon, 22% Wool, 5% Rabbit Hair, 41% Rayon so it's hand wash only but if you are averse to hand-washing, there is also the exact same version of this sweater in all cotton here at LOFT as well.
For those of you who are curious about what I got my Secret Santa, you can check out Elaine of Curls and Pearls post here. :)
