/ Women's climbing shoes for small feet
I feel your pain; I wear UK 2.5 in street shoes! The good news is that most climbing shoes do come small enough. The bad news is that no-one stocks them and shops are often unwilling to order them in because if you don't take them they are hard to get rid of.
I find that most 5.10 shoes fit me pretty well. I have been wearing the same model (Anasazi vcs size 2) for about 8 years now because I know I like them so I can order them from shops that know me on the understanding that I will take them unless they are faulty.
I have found that you are most likely to find small sizes to try on in shops that are located at climbing walls. I guess they have more children coming through than shops on the high street.
She tried testarossas in an EU36.5, felt that the shape was fine but just a bit too big, and ordered an EU35.5 from the USA. (We're in Australia at the moment, and the shop we were in said it would take 6-12 months for them to special order a smaller size)
On top of this, if you order from shops in the UK, order 2 sizes (eg 35, and 35.5) and send back the one that doesn't fit.
If you have narrow feet, a lot of the la sportiva models are good (try the mens/unisex models as well). Also try the 5.10 Sirens.
