We petites, AKA the Vertically Challenged, are mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore! Contrary to what I heard on The View the other day— that larger sizes are being phased out at department stores and smaller sizes are doing just great —the space on the 9th floor at Saks that used to be the Petite Department has been taken over by...
