I could talk about this for a while. Fewer and fewer stores are carrying petites. And, the choice are bleak. If one wants to not look like everyone else, good luck! Ann Taylor and Talbots are not my look. Sometimes Eddie bauer is; often I order from Jjill. I went looking for a new winter coat this year and I was appalled at the lack of choice and at the poor quality being offered. What used to look like Penneys is now in Macys and the Boston Store. We are all paying a price for companies moving overseas. And I mean that literally: we are paying a lot for cr-p.
