Fall Feature: Conrad C and Proportion Petites

Half of the fall collection has arrived from Proportion Petites. Highlights include plaid peacoats in greys and pinks. This collection is filled with fall's main colours - magenta, pinks, teal green and turquoise blue. The royal sapphire blue has carried into the fall from summer in stylish boiled wool ¾ sleeve open jackets that pair well with a classic pant and a simple sweater.

The vests and matching t-shirts are a favourite as the arm holes and lengths fit a petite frame perfectly.

Another favourite is the classic Denise Fit Pant available in grey and black for regular sizes, and grey, brown and black for petite sizes. These pants are washable and the fabric holds up extremely well. The fit is a high rise with a straight leg. If you are looking for a similar style but in a mid-rise, we suggest their Melissa pants.

We have the largest selection of petites on the Island! If you have short arms, a short waist or short legs, you may find that this collection answers your fit problems.

Fall Arrivals: Marble UK
We have a full selection of Marble fashions in-stock with more styles arriving monthly. Designed in Scotland, this line features mix and match groupings of sweaters, cardigans and jeans in modern colors and prints.

Highlights include the taupe and soft pink grouping, and the black and white polka-dot/striped sweaters and jeans. The chartreuse and navy, and the royal blue, black and purple groupings will arrive this month and next.

Marble's sweaters fly out of the door as soon as they arrive because of their unique styles and details like perfectly placed buttons on the sleeves or back.

This line is in European sizing that fits petites and regulars.
Fall Arrivals: Lisette L.
In Lisette L.'s new collection, you will find printed pants in 28 inch and 31 inch inseams. We have also added their Boyfriend Jackets in charcoal and black with plenty of newly arrived tunic styles to complete your look. This line is made in Canada.

If you missed our recent Trunk Show, it is not too late to find your perfect Lisette L. pant style - we are still accepting orders at the Boutique, so come in and try on a pair today.

Style Tip: How to Dress For Your Body Type - Part 1
One of the most flattering ways to accentuate your unique beauty is to dress for your body type. Over the next few newsletters, we will discuss advice for four body types, which I categorize as b-o-d-x. Stay tuned to discover your top tips and share them with your friends!
If you are a b body type, you have a straight figure with a flatter derrière and tend to gain weight in the tummy/love handle area. Your main goal is to draw attention inward and upward. Here's a few tips for how to achieve this:
Tops: Tucking shirts in is a major no-no. Tops and jackets should fall just past your tummy/above your hips or longer-never shorter. Structured jackets, flowy feminine tops, all-over patterns or monochromatic dressing create flattering camouflage. To bring the attention upward, accessorize! Chunky necklaces, dazzling earrings and stylish scarves (in your eye-catching pop colours of course!) are fabulous ways to draw the eye upward to your beautiful face.
Bottoms: Avoid trousers with pleated fronts and opt for ones with a flat front or side zip in a relaxed fit or full-leg style. Mid-rise jeans in straight or bootcut styles in a dark wash are always chic. Pockets with decorations or flaps are especially flattering for your booty as well!
Dresses: Aim for three-quarter-length sleeves, v-shaped necklines and ruching across the tummy or a wrap-style for a timeless flattering look. Feel free to try a tummy shaper as well, there is no shame in that! Don't feel like you always need the perfect "little black dress" either. Dressing for your body type and wearing a pop colour will always be your best option!
