Christa Jean created in October 2006 to share her knowledge as a stylist and fellow petite, on how and where to shop for small sizes. As a petite woman living in one of Canada’s top fashion cities- Toronto, she found it difficult to find clothing that was fashionable and that fit her frame. Christa knew that she was not the only petite that shared her frustration. She created a blog that provides other petite women with advice on what works on their frame, what other petite celebrities are doing and petite charities.
