I'm five feet tall, 10-12 curvy as anything, whenever I've seen petite blogs they always seem to feature 6-8 girls and tbh I don't think they're styles work well on someone with my West Indian batty... and joint pain means I can't really wear heels or if so very rarely and not to walk anywhere
What's wrong with US bloggers? Admittedly I follow a few. If the blog is nicely put-together and the content interesting and photography sharp and stylish, why not? I use them for style ideas, not actual shopping lists.
Anyway, I like Wendy's Lookbook, Extra Petite, Retro Flame and Gentri Lee.
But the issue I have with US petite blogs is the clothes come from US shops generally not available or difficult to source in the UK
I know there's lots of tips online for my petite body type, but I'm not very fashion savvy and don't particularly relish shopping, because of the high frustration factor of looking for anything that actually fits me that is stylish.
So much easier if I could find a UK-based, very petite, pear-shaped blogger about my size, so I can have a colour-by-numbers guide and be able to shop for clothes/refresh my wardrobe efficiently
