Welcome to Petite Over 40!

Petite Over 40 is a blog that explores the world of fashion from the vantage point of middle age. Through personalized articles, I collaborate with local boutique owners, fashion designers, and artists who bring their unique voices to the industry.

My name is Sherry Dryja. I’m a food and fashion writer and technical illustrator for patent applications. I also do some ghostwriting for small businesses. To learn more about all that, have a look at my writing and illustrating portfolios at SherryDryja.com.

When I turned 45 years old I decided to get out of my fashion rut and find my signature style. In addition to exploring the industry through fashion designers, artists, and local boutiques, I seek out vintage and thrifted treasures as a way of creating a look all my own. I study iconic fashion elements from decades past and when I’m done with all that, I create styles that best express who I am at Petite Over 40.

About My Sizes:

If you’re following along for your own fashion adventure, you might like to have some of my sizing details to guesstimate how these same things might fit on you. I stand just at 5 feet tall. Last time I checked, my measurements were 32-25-34. I usually shop in the Petites section and I tend to wear the following sizes: XSP, 0P, 2P. I typically wear size 6 in shoes.
