Who is the little lady?

Hello from the little lady!

Somehow you seem to have stumbled upon my website and landed in my little world, filled with small annoyances, thoughts and quandaries, hopefully some of which are not unique to me.

So who is the little lady I hear you ask? The little lady is a petite, brunette, female in her mid 20′s, working in marketing in the south of England (that covers the lady part) and reaches the astonishing height of 4ft 9 (that would be the little part)!

Like any little lady I enjoy all the good things in life; shoes, shopping, clothes, shoes, gossiping, make-up and shoes. As well as helping the shops through the recession by increasing my spending and saving less, I enjoy giving my two pennies worth on a variety of subjects, so where better to do it than on the world wide web!

Why start a blog? Being small, petite, vertically challenged, pint-sized, iccle, tiny, pocket-sized or mini I have, over the years, thought there must be like minded people out there (apart from my mum and sister) who share my petite views and frustrations.

For those of you who were unfortunate enough to be born with the genetics to be over the 5ft 3″ classification for petite I hope I provide some light relief, a bit of humour and interesting thoughts.

I hope you enjoy my blog.

    Hi there,

    I have been working in the modelling industry for almost 5 years now and I have experience numerous set backs due to my height. Time and time again a taller skinny model has been selected opposed to myself. Also numerous modelling agencies list requirements for a model to be a minimum height of 5ft 8″. Even though the average woman in the UK is 5ft 4″. It really annoys me as I feel that all women should be entitled to fashion and to feel confident with their bodies and not feel pressured into having to have a super skinny, tall and unhealthy image. I have gone down the route of promoting petite modelling due to the challenges with height, body shape and modelling that I have faced so far in the past 5 years. I have spoken to numerous photographers who don’t have a problem with working with petite models. However, the fashion industry and agencies continue to demand tall skinny models, which pressures people into unhealthy habits. I am strongly against this.

    I have created the group, Perfectly Petite in order to promote petite modelling and I aim to demonstrate that nobody should have change their appearance, especially using drastically unhealthy measures in order to become a successful model. Not only does the “strict regulations” of the fashion industry cause unhealthy life choices, it also has a great emotional impact as well. I for one have found myself upset due to set backs regarding my height. I have met a number of other petite models in the industry who have similar views to myself. This accompanied with all of the above led me to creating Perfectly Petite. I have been contacting numerous magazines and so far I have had a good response, although some are a bit hesitant in publishing our story so far (due to the normal fashion industry regulations). I am currently organising a charity calendar that will use models from Perfectly Petite. I am aiming to promote the group, a healthy body image and also raise funds for charity at the same time.

    I have also met with a MP (Jo Swinson) to discuss similar ideas.

    I stumbled across your blog as I was looking for inspiration for my blog. I’m new to this whole bogging thing and don’t really understand how it works yet but I wanted to give it a go because I couldn’t ever find what I wanted online for my height. I am 4ft 11 and its very frustrating. My ideal height would be 5ft 3!!

    Anyway nice to meet a fellow blogger. Mine’s http://petiteboutique.onsugar.com/

      Hi Hayley, thank you for your comment. I share your frustration which is why I started my blog. I think the retailers are missing a trick as there are more of us little ladies out there than I thought, all of whom share the same annoying issues. Your blog looks great and I shall be adding it to my favourites :) xx
