I wanted to take a moment to thank y’all for your kindness and support! Reaching 1K followers on IG is crazy to me! I know many other lovely ladies have many more followers, but it is so incredibly meaningful to me that there are people out there who want to follow my style! Read on to see why it’s so meaningful to me!
You’ll know from my photos and handle that I’m a petite lady! I’ve been petite since I was born and it was very difficult for me growing up as a teeny tiny person. I never felt comfortable in my clothes and didn’t feel like I could wear the current trends. I was often ridiculed for my size and told to eat more, even though I ate more than all of my friends!
I had to work extra hard to find clothes that flattered me and looking pulled together often deterred people from commenting on my size. I became obsessed with petite fashion and the brands that supported us petite ladies. I’ve remained quite loyal to them to this day.
I felt very alone growing up and never saw anyone else who looked like me. Everyone was either a ‘normal’ size or was focused on losing weight. No one was trying to dress for a petite figure and I’d wished there were other petite ladies to look up to.
I recently started this blog hoping to inspire other young petite ladies to be confident in themselves and to help them navigate petite friendly clothing that would flatter and enhance their natural beauty.
I am so grateful that so many of you want to come on this journey with me. If young Kim could see me now, she would be so shocked and proud!
