Hot Slut Of The Day!

Petite Sophisticate, the store where petite AND sophisticated ladies bought their ensembles. (If you were petite but not sophisticated or sophisticated but not petite, you didn’t even bother going inside.)

Petite Sophisticate was a sophisticated emporium of clothing for petite women in the US and its stores were mostly in malls. Petite Sophisticate’s sister store was Casual Corner and at their peak they had 525 stores between them. Petite Sophisticate (and yes, every time I type that, my petite finger aka my pinky finger goes up) was born in 1950 and it started out selling casual sportswear type clothes for smaller ladies. But by the 90s, they had switched shit up and went from selling sportswear to selling office clothes. That’s the Petite Sophisticate I remember. I remember my friend’s mom buying her business woman suits there and that’s where many a women bought their interview outfits.

The Petite Sophisticate that was in the mall near my house looked a lot like the one in the picture above. I thought it was the height of elegance, because it had “sophisticate” in its name and the outside was covered in wood (or what looked like wood). It looked like a giant fancy desk.

Petite Sophisticate was just too sophisticated for this world, I guess. Every remaining Petite Sophisticate and Casual Corner closed in 2005. Lane Bryant took over their leftover leases.

I’m sure that ever since then, petite and sophisticated ladies have been roaming this land naked, because they have nothing to wear now that their store is gone. Where are they going to get petite and sophisticated clothes?! (Hint: They should get them in Prince’s closet since he is the ultimate Petite Sophisticate.)
