Here are try-ons from my recent LOFT haul:

LOFT Embroidered Babydoll Dress, size 00 regular
Embroidered Babydoll Dress, size 00 regular
Zara Mini City Bag in lime green (item no. 4498/004, review here)
Andre Assous Josie Espadrille Sandals (review here)

I ordered this embroidered babydoll dress in 00 regular after trying on size 0 in store. Unfortunately, I think it's still too loose on me as you can see from the back picture but it works if you like a looser fit. I may seek out size 0P to try on before making up my mind. I'd say the dress runs true to size to a little big. It's 61% cotton and 39% linen and the lining is 100% cotton. The care tag says is machine washable and I'm hopeful it will do well washed in cold and air dried. Size 00 regular measurements: 34" bust, 32" at the empire waist (where the embroidery ends) and 35" total length.

LOFT Short Sleeve Trapeze Dress, size XXS regular
Short Sleeve Trapeze Dress, size XXS regular

I ordered this short sleeve trapeze dress to try since I love dresses with sleeves so I don't have to feel obligated to wear a cardigan. I really love the draping of this dress and it fits true to size. The material is light and airy and since it's black it's not see through. Old Navy also has a similar jersey swing dress.

LOFT Summer Leaves Maxi Dress, size XSP

Zara Flat Chain Sandals in gold (item no. 2660/001, review here)

This summer leaves maxi dress is my favorite new maxi! It's very flattering and the perfect length for petites at 49" total length. It's a few inches above the floor on me with flats so it's not sweeping the streets of Boston. As mentioned in my previous post this maxi dress runs small in the chest so you may need to size up if you have a larger bust. For the really petite, I looked at size XXSP on the rack last week when deciding to try on size XSP and it was very small and noticeably shorter.

Lou & Grey Knotstripe Dress, size XXS regular
Lou & Grey Knotstripe Dress, size XXS regular

I have a soft spot for knot details and I just had to order this Lou & Grey knotstripe dress to try on for size. Size XXS regular fits me well and I love the draping but I didn't like how thin and sheer the material was. For example, you can clearly see the white price tag in the back view. I was also at a loss what to wear over the dress given the placement of the knot detail I couldn't pair it with any of my jean jackets or utility jackets. I think it would look very chic/edgy with a cropped leather jacket which I do not own (if you have any recommendations please share). My husband loves this dress but I'm leaning towards returning it. It's a little to sexy for my taste.
