I'm 5'3" and finding the right clothes is a pain, I agree. I always have to shorten pants. Petites don't work on me - my arms are too long and somehow the proportions don't work.

I like Lord and Taylor - they have good sales. Also the staff is not on commission so they don't push you. L&T has clothes that are their own label that are knockoffs that sometimes fit well.

Good luck with this!
