I'm starting a new job soon and needed some new clothes. I started at the petite section at Nordstrom. Now I love Nordstrom. It's my favorite place for shoes (they carry my size - 5 1/2) and cosmetics. But I was so disappointed. The petite section was like old lady central. Even more disappointing is how cheap everything was. Some of the pants weren't even lined (even though they cost $100) and I didn't see anything with a natural fiber. I complained to the manager (in a nice way) saying that I was set to buy a lot more but wasn't going to spend that kind of money on cheap polyester pants. So I went to my old stand by, Ann Taylor. Sure enough they had lots of things to choose from and I spent a lot of money. Money that I could have spent at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's or Macy's if they had bothered to carry decent petite clothing. It really irritates me because there lots of us petite women under 60 with professional jobs that need decent work clothing. If the market exists why don't they fill it?
