Perfect Petite Lace Dress

Happy Friday! Easter is only two days away so hopefully you’ve already found your perfect Easter dress. If not, have no fear! Express has a new petite line with so many great items. I fell in love with this pink lace dress the minute I saw it online. The pink lace is so pretty and the tiered silhouette makes this dress both elegant and versatile. Most cities have an Express store locally so you could probably pick this dress up today just in time for Easter Sunday. If you don’t live near an Express store, you could pay a little extra for overnight shipping so it still arrives in time. Read more below about the petite size and fit of this dress.

Petite Size & Fit

I’m only 5’0 so I am on the shorter end of the petite spectrum. Most petite dresses are marketed towards women 5’4 and under. As you can see from the photos, this dress falls about 2.5 to 3 inches above my knee. For me, this is too short for work but is a great length for anywhere outside the office. If you are a taller woman, or even a taller petite, this dress also comes in regular length, which you can find here. Overall, this dress runs true-to-size but you could probably size down if you prefer a more snug fit. I am wearing the petite size 10. I have linked this dress along with some of my other favorite lace dresses below.

*the petite collection says “online only” but I found several of the pieces in my local store.


This dress can truly stand alone so I chose minimal accessories for this look. I found these round geometric sunglasses at Target for only $17! It is very rare that I find sunglasses that actually look flattering on me. Between my short side-swept bangs and the bump on my nose, I always feel a bit awkward in most sunglasses. These are a comfortable fit and I think they’re so fun and unique without being too big or overpowering on my face. For only $17, you really can’t go wrong! This dress has a high neck so I chose these pearl statement earrings in lieu of a statement necklace. Shop more amazing statement earrings here!



I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!
