    Your videos are really helpful for short women. I do think that "mulberry silk" is a deceptive term though. It simply means that the caterpillars are fed exclusively on mulberry leaves before they spin their cocoons. They are then killed before they can hatch into moths, and the silk from the cocoon is unwound into a long fibre. Not very kind to the animals.

    I love watching your video. I am 87 and still am interested in learning how to look my best as a petite. My sincere wish that the phase “you will look younger” could be substituted with “look more stylish”. Being old is not the problem. It is how you present your self. You can help change the perception worldwide with your popular sophisticated video. One little change at a time.

    I buy most of my wardrobe in silk, mostly from Lily Silk, or Equipment, Reformation (mostly too low cut) or Quince. My skin is so sensitive that I can’t stand anything else around my neck, for one thing. Allergies to synthetic fibers can develop with repeat exposure, that’s what happened to me. I got tired of buying fast-fashion that looked fine, but that after one miserable wearing, I didn’t want to wear ever again. Now, I buy fewer and better items, all in natural fibers.

    I think I’m just gonna look for a calf length coat that goes with everything lol

    My stomach is my main issue. So I try to camouflage my stomach.

    Very good point. The toe shape defines the personality of the shoes. I always get attracted to almond shaped toe slighted pointed. It is still feminine, but not too delicate. It actually speaks of my personality very well. No wonder. Thanks, Chi.

  7. Pluscelamemechose on November 19, 2022 at 11:00 am

    I’m enjoying these videos. I’m going shopping before Thanksgiving, and I know what to look for-ward to!

  8. Sanna on November 19, 2022 at 11:00 am

    That black, long coat you’re wearing at abt. 4:47, where is it from please?

  9. Tami Ewert on November 19, 2022 at 11:03 am

    Fabulous video! Thanks Chi!!

  10. Laura C on November 19, 2022 at 11:05 am

    Any tips for larger petite women? Who don’t have a defined waistline. I’m not inclined to ever tuck in my shirt. It doesn’t feel comfortable or look good when I do.

  11. Yvette Bennett on November 19, 2022 at 11:10 am

    Your tips are always so helpful. I am slowly buying things according to your tips. My jackets dont all compliment me but I cant buy any new ones so I just make do.
    Thank you.

    You’re an excellent stylist Chi

  13. Palmina C on November 19, 2022 at 11:14 am

    You’re very informative and really sweet.

    I saved up for and got three new pairs of knee-high boots this autumn. Every pair is two inches or more too high in the shaft, and although supposedly slim-fitted styles, enormous around the ankle and calf (and I’m not even slender!). Also, they have those really stingy, four inch zippers. Cheap ones, too, zipping and unzipping them is a nightmare, even with zipper lubricant added, my usual trick. These weren’t low price, they were about $200 to $250 per pair, really, how much more would it cost to use a full-length, YKK zipper (best in industry)? One pair turned out to be plastic, with a plastic lining, too, just to guarantee I’ll get Athlete’s Foot, once in my teens was enough for life, it took years to get rid of, is as miserable as bad poison oak, and the boots that caused it were unlined, genuine suede! But, I wore them too often, since I never rewear a pair of closed-toe boots or shoes (or plastic) within a single week, which is why have so many. Come on, Nordstrom, if we search for genuine leather, as I did, don’t offer plastic ones, it never occurred to me that it would, or I wouldn’t have bought them! It irritates me that the quality of everything is so crappy nowadays and that most items don’t work for us petites. And I’m 5’4.5”, really not a petite at all, it’s just that everything is designed for 6-foot tall models. The average woman in the US is 5’4” and a size 16, not 6 feet and a size 2, wake up designers! You’re not only alienating, but losing, your buyers! We demand decent quality and fit, so get your act together, we’re voting with our pocketbooks.

    Hello, I’m 156 cm tall and very curvy, your channel and shop are great, but unfortunately the sizes are too small for me

  16. Lori Mccoy on November 19, 2022 at 11:18 am

    Chi I love your lighter hair colour. It’s so flattering on you

  17. Shelley Retter on November 19, 2022 at 11:19 am

    Where did you get your camel coat with fur on the collar ?

  18. Cecelia Manalim on November 19, 2022 at 11:20 am

    Always lovely videos

  19. mel Belle on November 19, 2022 at 11:21 am

    Excited to have found a maxi coat, can’t wait to wear it. Thanks for the tips!

  20. Wendy Kornfein on November 19, 2022 at 11:25 am

    We really need you. Such a difficult subject…

  21. Yeghine Nazarian on November 19, 2022 at 11:25 am

    Is the knotted poncho coming back?

  22. Xochitl Sandoval on November 19, 2022 at 11:27 am

    I love your pearl hoop earrings! Any chance you remember where you got them?

    I have the black and white plaid very similar. Is so cozy bulky and all but I live it. Wear with black skinny jeans and black sweater or turtleneck and boots. It looks rather cute kind of? I’m in S.California where everything is possible. Lol! When I arrived to this country we landed in Chicago for 4 years there it gets more dressy I miss seeing handsome tall men in a trench coats in downtown and the beautiful decorations. Had an aunt who worked in Marshall’s Field’s that was fancy!

  26. Kimberly Perrotis on November 19, 2022 at 11:34 am

    I’ve never been able to fit my wide toes (C, or average width) into pointy shoes, but I feel stumpy in round-toe ones, especially flats. Almond toes are my favorite, and I like some elongated, soft-square ones, too. I think heel shape and height is really important, too, for setting the tone of the shoe and hence, the outfit. Medium heels, under 3”, forever!

  27. Garlic Girl on November 19, 2022 at 11:39 am

    I too used to always wonder why my dresses looked off in certain coats…I get it now.

  28. Kimberly Berlin on November 19, 2022 at 11:41 am

    I feel like this video is a duplicate to others you have made.

  29. Christine Murray on November 19, 2022 at 11:47 am

    Hi Chi – your videos are so helpful. Lilysilk looks so beautiful, and I especially love the silk shirts, but do they fit petites? Regular size shirt sleeves are usually much too long on my petite frame. I would love to get your recommendations.

  30. Nancy L on November 19, 2022 at 11:49 am

    I did my own version of the plaid coat with a beautifu black/white plaid Tilley shirt. It comes out at a perfect length for petites when worn outside the pants/jeans unbuttoned.

  31. Nicki Rios on November 19, 2022 at 11:49 am

    Will the shorter jackets, like moto, still work if I’m trying to hide my tummy? It seems to cut off right at the widest part that I’m trying to disguise.

  32. Jiyoon on November 19, 2022 at 11:50 am

    I love the classic music. Good tips
