Shopping for Petites

I haven't seen a thread like this, so I'm starting one.

My sister and I are both very petite. I am only 5'1 and lately, I've been having a hard time shopping. Take today, I went out with the mind-set to buy a least 2 tops and some pants, and I go home with some new underwear and that's it. Lol. I am trying to update my waredrobe and look more classic, sophisticated and work-appropriate (though I don't have an office job). I don't want to spend too much, but I want to buy what is good quality.

My question is, where do other petites shop? There is such a lowww option in stores and I am hesitant to shop online because you can't try things on. Sometimes I find a nice piece but it is too small/big and they don't have my size. Other times, nothing in my size is my style. Ahh! It's frustrating. I would love suggestions.
