At 5'3'' I'm probably on the high end of what's considered petite. There are a lot of advantages to being on the smaller side including being able to score items in the kids' section from time to time. I'll never buy an adult ski jacket again after finding the exact same Burton jacket as mine in the juniors' section for almost half of what I paid for the adult version. Grr.
I found this blazer in the petite section at Ann Taylor. It's nice to have the proper sleeve length! Shhh.... I never have anything tailored. The What Not to Wear team would be angry.

Do you use tailoring when things don't fit perfectly? Is the expense worth it?
