One of the very best things about shopping in England is the range of clothing available for the vertically challenged among us. Most of the major clothing stores have a Petites section, and jeans are often available in several leg lengths. So even though I'm at the shorter end of the petite range it's still so much easier to find clothes that don't make me look like I'm playing dress-ups, and I don't have to factor in the cost of alterations before deciding on a purchase.
If I'd seen this dress when we were there I would have snapped it up.
Miss Selfridge do ship to New Zealand though, so if I really wanted the Petites Bow Printed Tea Dress (£37.00) I could order it. Only if I really, really, really, really, really, really wanted it though.
