    I just found your blog and I am in love! Haha I am also petite, and it is so refreshing to know that there are others like me who also struggle with finding the right size and fit. Also, love that your husband is so tall. My boyfriend is 6’1 as well, and I love our height difference!

    Kim, fashion bloggers in general tend to look amazing but your imagery is really a top above the rest. Somehow you always happen to make your photos look so golden, so we are very happy to come across your beautiful brand. Who knows, maybe in the future we can collaborate on behalf of one of our clients. Either way, greetings from sunny New York City.

    After doing a Google Images search, I came across this blog. You are totally beautiful with your outfits and with your style. I am totally fond of your style. I wish you the absolute best in all aspects of life. Take care and be well.

    Aw, I love this! I found your blog and boutique through CBL and I love everything you’re doing! I can totally relate to you (parents are refugees from Vietnam) and it’s definitely something I try not to over-look in day-to-day life. your parents must be SO proud of you and your accomplishments! So amazing! Keep up the beautiful and inspiring work!

    Being a petite woman and knowing how hard it is to find clothes that fit, why do you not offer petite sizes at your store, Morning Lavender?

    • Reply Kim Le August 24, 2017 at 6:20 pm

      We are definitely working on adding more petite styles to the shop! It’s definitely a specialty market so as we grow, we can offer more!

    The clothes of Morning Lavender are so beautiful and I love them very much, especially dresses. However, I’m just only 153cm and my leg inseam (to the ankle) is just 60cm, which means a lot of Morning Lavender dresses that are not suitable for me even I love them very much. I hope you can add more petite sizes for the clothes so that petite women can choose it. Then I can buy it through internet as I live in HK 🙂
