Laura Petites


I needed a nice pair of pants quickly for a job interview, and rushed to this store an hour before the interview. I am short at 5'1, and pants are always, always too long for me, so pant shopping is usually an ordeal. I wore my highest heels, anticipating that the pants bought would most likely be a tad too long. Lucky for me this was the first store I visited! The sales lady found me many pairs to try, she matched my shoes and my top, and even let me wear the pants out of the store. The pants are not only comfortable and stylish, but they fit perfectly in length, even with a lower heel! I was in and out of there in 15 minutes, now that's service!

It's so nice to have a store that caters to my height restrictions. All other stores seem to only cater to a certain height. The pants come in a variety of sizes in the waist, but the length is always too long is you are under 5'4. This is for sure a store I will be seeing more of in the future!

...! so jealous!!

Sigh! I have the same problem as you, it's so hard to find pants that actually fit with my shortness... When I read how excited you were about this store, I immediately checked to see if there is a Laura Petites here where I live, but there's not! gah. So frustrating!! haha :D

Well I got my interview pants from Reitman's, cuz they have a petite section but it's not all that big... and not that much to choose from.. and you said the sales lady found you many pairs to try.. haha gosh I wish this store existed where I live :P

tee hee!

I feel your pain Nessie! I have never shopped at Laura Petites but I normally beg the peeps at the mall to get my pants hemmed in an hour and it works out well for me! I find it gives me more selection etc. Congrats on the new job as well! email me and let me know how it is going!

Our store here is also hiring, which is funny, as if this interview didn't pan out I was going to apply there! Simply so I could buy clothes with a discount! I also love their dresses, so funky. I actually got 2 dresses there for a wedding, and was very pleased with them.
