After a troubled retail past, Petite Sophisticate Petite Fashion: Petite Sophisticate Now Online is making a bid to reclaim the petite market (it’s not like anyone else has stepped in and taken it over, right?), opening outlet stores in select locations and, now, offering online Petite Fashion: Petite Sophisticate Now Online. Welcome to the 21st century, Petite Sophisticate—what took you so long?

Having checked out the online offerings (catering to women 5’4” and under, sizes 0-14), it’s much as we would have suspected—like Chadwick’s in the past, a bit too heavy on clunky lines and less-than-current designs. And while there are some nice pieces, like this basic black skirt and this chic keyhole blouse, overall, it looks like just business as usual. The prices? Not Target, but not Neiman’s either, so budget finds are a definite possibility.

So we’re not bowled over, but happy, at least, to have another convenient online option for petite fashion basics. And the dresses, all under $100 (like this matte jersey two-tone number, for $69), are worth a look.
