Introducing LOFT & Found + Weekly Reviews

 J.Crew Chateau Parka in dusty ginger, size 00 regular

I'm back from spending over a week with my family in Philly! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I have to get our place guest ready. I'll probably be in panic mode soon and I recently separated my personal phone from my work phone so I'm nervous to see what I missed and need to catch up on tomorrow. Good thing it's a short work week right? I wore this soft boucle sweater three times last week since it was really comfortable. My dad (non-iPhone user) helped me with this picture during one of our daily walks.  

OUTFIT DETAILS

 Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage Sneaker

I've seen these Adidas sneakers on so many people by now but last week was the first time I've ever tried them on at Nordstrom Rack. I picked up the Cloadfoam style which are very cushy. They run true to size to 1/2 larger. I took my usual size 7. Without socks my feet to slide around a bit in them but with socks they fit just right.

LOFT Vintage Romance Blouse, size XXS regular (review below, review of size XSP here)

LOFT Leggings in Sateen Five Pocket (Marisa Fit) in shale stone grey, size 26/2P (review here

Packing for vacation used to be nerve wracking but I tried to keep in mind that the only people I would see back home were family. My family just cooks and eats a lot. I know my staycation sounds so exciting but being with family is always good for the soul.

LOFT & FOUND

LOFT & Found is a new hidden page on my blog and a new Instagram account I created @loftnfound. I started it as a space for individuals that want to sell or swap with other #LOVELOFT fans. Please be careful when clicking any outside links and interact at your discretion as these transactions are independent of my blog. I loved this concept by J.Crew Aficionada and it seemed like we needed a place like that for LOFT oldies but goodies. Last week we successfully matched three items. It makes me so happy to see my lovely followers helping one another.

Other hidden pages on my blog:

Instagram Links - Links to items I share and feature in my Instagram stories.
Fit Reference - Find all my measurements here.
Gift Ideas - sorely in need of updating by category. Sorry!

Also did you know that you can find out if I reviewed something by googling 'whatjesswore' + the exact item name? If I reviewed the item then my blog entry tends to be the top search results.

WEEKLY REVIEWS

 LOFT Cougar Floral Smocked Ruffle Tie Neck Shell, size XSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love this fun cougar print for the fall and I finally found XSP to try on but unfortunately the overall length is too short for my preference so I believe I would need size XXS regular for the longer length. The top is has a wider fit but drapes well. See size XXS regular style by Christy. Christy's closet puts my LOFT collection to shame and she's been a huge help this past week. She kindly helped two of my followers find LOFT oldies but goodies from her closet over on my new account @loftnfound.

 LOFT Skinny Brushed Corduroy Pants in alley grey, size 24/00 regular

Click here and here to view the clip from my try-on

I wasn't sure how I felt about corduroy but this outfit as seen in my previous post convinced me that they can look very stylish. I found that they fit true to size and I tried on size 24/00 regular but I would prefer the shorter petite inseam so I may try my usual size 25/0P.

 LOFT Modern Skinny Chewed Hem Jeans in Bright Mid Indigo Wash, size 25/0P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

If you're looking for comfortable, slightly distressed jeans then I would recommend trying this new style. I found that these run true to size in my usual size 25/0P. The petite 25" inseam fit like ankle length jeans on me. For reference I'm 5' 2.5'. This style is also available in a darker wash here.

 LOFT Modern Unpicked Button Fly Skinny Jeans in Rich Mid Indigo Wash, size 25/0P
LOFT Modern Unpicked Button Fly Skinny Jeans in Rich Mid Indigo Wash, size 25/0P 
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I've been wanting to try these blogger favorite jeans for a while now but every time I look for them I can never seem to find size 26/2P. I tried on size 25/0P while in Philly and I found that these jeans run one size smaller and the petite inseam (likely 23"-23.5") is a few inches too short. For reference I'm 5' 2.5". I would probably need these in size 25 regular for the longer length. I thought the button fly would be troublesome but they weren't difficult to button or unbutton. By the way has anyone successfully used fray check on unfinished hems? One of my followers suggested this workaround to combat further fraying at the hem but I have yet to try it myself.

 Lou & Grey Fuzz Boucle Poncho, size XS/S P
Lou & Grey Fuzz Boucle Poncho, size XS/S P (review of size XS/S here, currently sold out online)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I was browsing the small sale section last week and I came across this poncho in petites and in my size! I really wanted it in the taupe color I reviewed in September in this older post but I'm glad I tried on this color. I was also lucky because it was marked down and therefore on extra sale that day I bought it. I stepped out to show my mom this poncho and this customer (no, not an associate) thought I looked so cute that she tied this scarf around my neck before I had time to react. I appreciated her enthusiasm and style tip but I've never had someone come up to me and do that before.

 LOFT Vintage Romance Blouse, size XXS regular

I love this vintage romance blouse so much I now have it in both size XXS regular and XSP petite (review here). I found that this top fits true to size but if you want a longer overall length then I would stick with the regular missy size. I love how LOFT styled it with this ribbed yoke open cardigan so I odered it in size XSP. I found that the cardigan runs true to size and you can see it on me here.

I was curious about this teal colored dotted lace yoke blouse so I ordered size XXS regular to try. It runs about one size larger so I would suggest sizing down for a better fit after viewing this clip I saved from my Instagram stories with fresh eyes.

I previously reviewed this textured pocket open cardigan in grey and size XSP here. Based on my previous review I ordered size XXS regular in whisper white but I found the sleeves to be longer than the petite sizes. I probably should have stuck with size XSP. You can see size XXS regular on me here.

My mom loves my scarves and she naturally wanted this wooly plaid infinity scarf the moment she saw it on me so I gave her mine. See it on me here. I'm currently debating whether or not to get another one as a replacement since I am admittedly a bit of a scarf hoarder.

I loved these performance denim leggings so much I ordered a second one as back up. I ordered both in size 27/4P but the first pair I picked out myself in store and it has a 24.5" inseam while the new pair has a 25.25" inseam. The wash is also slightly different (the new pair is lighter) but I checked the style number on the back of the care tag and sure enough they are the exact same jeans and supposedly the same size. You may want to order more than one pair in case you notice the same discrepancy in the inseam. See the new pair of size 27/4P on me here and see the old pair on me here (first pair I purchased).

SHOPRUNNER & ANN TAYLOR

I've been looking for this scallop trim sweater shell but the smaller sizes sold out. I ordered size XS regular when it popped back one morning in the white color. I also signed up for ShopRunner and membership is complimentary with American Express, Mastercard and PayPal. I already placed four smaller orders at Ann Taylor since I signed up. Yay for no filler items! ShopRunner works like Amazon Prime at supported retailers by offering quick 2-day shipping.

 Cole Haan Elme II Ballet Flat in maple sugar

COMFY FLATS

I love the comfort of Cole Haan flats and I really love the buckle detail of this Elme style. I found that they fit true to my usual size 7. I had also slipped on size 6.5 which was a bit too snug. I also love the Palaria II ballet flats in nude leather which looks like a pale pink in person. See them on me here. I also found one pair of these Sam Edelman Berit sandals in my usual size 7. They do run a bit short in my opinion but they still look fine as my heels do not stick out.

I shared these cute $69.99 duck boots in my Instagram stories last weekend and the majority of you preferred the tan/navy color when I asked for your opinions (view poll results). I went with the grey/black color which looks grey and brown to me. They're really waterproof, comfortable, roomy enough to accommodate socks, lined with faux shearling to keep your feet warm, they have a good grip on the soles and I found that they run true to size.

Your collective help has been huge in sharing the best deals with #LOVELOFT fans and avid LOFT shoppers.

Just to clarify, I am more than happy to share the cardmember offers but how you chose to redeem them in stores is something that I shouldn't be involved in. Please message me if you have any questions and thank you for respecting my decision.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

 LOFT Fitting Room Reviews on www.whatjesswore.com

I enjoy lining up the hangers neatly for these shots. I also find it helpful to compare the different sleeve lengths and hemlines of the various garments since I try on different sizes in a single try-on (sizes XXS petite - XS regular in this case).

 LOFT Cutout Bell Sleeve Blouse, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love this bell sleeve top and I like that it isn't too see through for a white top. It has just the right amount of detail with the cutouts and slight bell sleeves to make it perfect for work or play. I found that it runs one size larger since size XXSP fits like size XSP or XXS regular.

 LOFT Plaid Ruffle Blouse, size XSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love the plaid pattern and neutral fall colors of this ruffled blouse. I found the my usual size XSP to be a bit too boxy and short for my preference. I want to try this top in size XXS regular to see if that helps with the overall length. If you like this plaid print it's also available as a dress.

 Lou & Grey Ruffle Off The Shoulder Sweatshirt, size XS regular
Click here and here to view the clip from my try-on

Su shared this new arrival with me and I was happy to find it in stores to try. I love the cute ruffled details and size XS regular fits like size XSP so I'd say this top runs small for Lou & Grey. I bought it to wear casually and/or at home since it's the cutest sweatshirt I've seen with the ruffle detail.

 LOFT Butterfly Forest Blouse, size XSP
LOFT Butterfly Forest Blouse, size XSP (this is the same style/fit as the vintage romance blouse)
Click here and here to view the clip from my try-on

I love the gorgeous fall floral print of this top which is also available as a dress as modeled by the adorable @abbydenora. Note that it fits a bit narrow in the shoulders so you may want to go up a size if you have broader shoulders. I went with my usual size XSP. I recently ordered size XXS regular in the vintage romance blouse (review of size XSP here) as a backup.

 LOFT Crushed Velvet Swing Dress, size XSP
LOFT Crushed Velvet Swing Dress, size 00P (review of size 0 regular here)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

One of my followers asked me to try on this velvet dress and I reviewed size 0 regular last week here. I came across the dress in petites so I tried it on for comparison. I found that the arm holes are cut very high so they dig into my armpits in my usual size 0P. The material is soft so it's not too bothersome. I don't love this dress on me but it's definitely a cute holiday dress. Note that the care instructions say dry clean only.

 LOFT Crushed Velvet Swing Dress

This is how one of my local stores styled the dress with the ribbed patch pocket open cardigan (review here).

 LOFT Cougar Floral Smocked Ruffle Tie Neck Shell

I love how @livelovepru styled this mannequin. The knit sweater (review of size XXSP here) and the dark grey bottoms highlight the fun cougar print shell making this pairing the perfect cozy fall outfit.

 Lou & Grey Striped Signaturesoft Cowl Top, size XS regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

If you love pink and stripes then you need to try this soft top! Size XS regular was too loose on me and I can't decide if I should try size XXS or XSP. My online True Fit suggests size XXS regular. It fits true to size for a looser fit so you may want to size down for a better fit.

 LOFT Slit Mockneck Sweater, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love anything grey with a mockneck so I was temped to get this sweater. It runs one size bigger since size XXSP fits like size XSP or XXS regular. It contains 5% wool but I didn't find it to be too scratchy when I tried it on.

LOFT Sheer Dot Ruffle Blouse, size XSP
LOFT Sheer Dot Ruffle Blouse, size XSP (new arrival available in stores first)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

This black blouse is new to stores first. I linked to it here in case you want to check back on it. It may be available online right after the current sale ends. I didn't love the overall length of size XSP on me so I would want to try it in size XXS regular if given the opportunity. Update 11/16: This blouse is now available for purchase online!

LOFT Rib Trim Bell Sleeve Sweater, size XS regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

This bell sleeve sweater is really cute but I found that the sleeve are too voluminous especially if you need to wear a coat. It fits true to size but it has a wider fit.

 LOFT Ruffle Cold Shoulder Sweater, size XSP
LOFT Ruffle Cold Shoulder Sweater, size XSP (review of size XS regular here)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I reviewed size XS regular in a previous post and found this sweater to be too long in regular missy. I found that my usual size XSP runs true to size but I didn't love this sweater on me. I prefer the similar relaxed pointelle sweater (review here) which doesn't have the cold shoulder detail.

 LOFT Fitting Room Reviews on www.whatjesswore.com

 LOFT Floral Pleated Flounce Dress, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love this floaty floral print dress and size XXSP fits like size XSP. It is fully lined and the slip is attached by a small string on both sides so it will stay in place. I did find the straps of the inner lining/slip to be a bit long so my bra was peeking through. The overall length in XXSP petites is a bit shorter than I'm comfortable with but I believe size XSP may be too loose. I'll have to try on XSP in a future visit to compare the fit and overall length.

 LOFT Textured Cowlneck Tunic Sweater, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love the subtle texture of this tunic sweater which looked amazing on the associate in store so I had to try it on for size. Unfortunately the overall length is a a bit too long on me (I'm 5' 2.5") and it's was also a bit too body hugging on my behind so I had to pass on this. The sleeves were also too long so I had to cuff them once.

 LOFT Tie Cuff Cape Coat, size SP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

One of my followers asked me to try on this cape coat for my Instagram stories and I finally came across one in stores since it's an online exclusive. It's a lovely burgundy color and it has a really nice drape to it. I'm trying on size SP here which is one size up from my usual size XSP but it still looks really cute. The one I tried on in store was full of lint which you can't tell from the photos so I wanted to order a new one. However, I know I don't need another jacket but if it pops back in my size and on super sale then I may reconsider. I was also not sure about the online review (in the petite size) about this coat staining other clothes. Has anyone else had this experience?

 LOFT Blossom Embroidered 3/4 sleeve signature cotton cardigan, size S regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

This floral embroidered cardigan is my mom's favorite sweater. I got it for her in September and she called me in a panic when she thought she lost it at work only to find it at home. I've been searching for size large for a while now but I haven't come across another one to buy for her as a backup. I tried on size S regular which was a bit loose on me. It fits true to size since my mom took her usual size large regular. Here are my mom's other picks:



 LOFT Field Jacket, size XXSP
LOFT Field Jacket, size XXSP (sold out online, review of size XSP here)

This field jacket is currently sold out online but I've been finding this jacket in the sale/clearance section in stores for those looking for a utility jacket on deep discount for next spring/fall. It runs true to size for a relaxed fit. Check out my review of size XSP here.

I spotted these pretty necklaces and necklaces in stores in case anyone is looking for affordable gift ideas while everything is on sale:

 LOFT Crystal Floral Leaf Statement Earrings

 Italian Melton Wool Blend Long Coat, size XSP
Click here and here to view the clip from my try-on

I stopped by Banana Republic and tried on this gorgeous navy coat but the fit wasn't perfect since the back looks too puffy when cinched. Another follower commented after I shared this coat in my Instagram stories and she said that she returned the coat because it made her behind look bigger and I would have to agree. I do love the cute button detail down the back vent. It's a good weight and size XSP fit true to size for me. For reference I'm 5' 2.5" and 110 pounds with 14" shoulders.

This cardigan runs true to size and I love the shawl collar. I tried on size XSP in my previous post and while it runs true to size I went up a size for more room in the sleeves. Update 11/24: I washed this cardigan on cold and air dried it but the sleeves now fit more snug. I tried to steam out the sleeves but I am bummed the sleeves are no longer loose fitting for more easy layering.

I love the look of the large pockets on this cardigan. I found that it runs very big and long so I fit size XXSP even though I am usually size XSP. I noticed that the material (8% mohair and 7% wool) is a bit scratchy when I tried it on over bare arms but it doesn't bother me when I layered it with a long sleeve blouse. I saw the cardigan featured on the mannequin but it had a snagged pocket so I would recommend inspecting the cardigan for any damages or quality issues.

The swiss dot details on the vintage romange blouse and tiny ruffles are my favorite and I found the blouse runs true to size. I took my usual size XSP. I wore it all day yesterday for work (see my outfit of the day here) and I did find the gathered details at the wrists to be a bit scratchy but I don't mind since it's a really cute blouse. It also slightly sheer despite being fully lined. Update 11/10: Note that this top fits a bit narrow in the shoulders so you may want to go up a size if you have broader shoulders.

I love this neutral sweater and it runs true to size. I went with size XS regular for a more relaxed fit. Update 11/24: I washed this sweater on cold and air dried it to prevent shrinking but the sleeves are now snug on my arms. I tried to steam out the sleeves hoping to relax the material but I'm quite bummed the sleeves don't fit the same anymore.

LOFT Modern Patchwork Sweater, size XS regular

Su asked me to try on this patchwork sweater so I was happy to find it in store to try. It's a very cute sweater with the different patches of colors and varying textures. It runs true to size but it does fit a bit boxy and wide. I passed on this sweater since wider sleeves tend to be very uncomfortable to fit into my coat sleeves.

LOFT Ruffle Cuff Utility Blouse, size XS regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I was eyeing this new utility blouse due to the cute ruffle cuffs and it runs true to size. It has longer sleeves so I would need this in petites for a shorter overall length.

 LOFT Textured Pocket Open Cardigan, size XSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love anything grey and I wanted to love this new open cardigan but the material looks like it has tiny pills all over it. I am waiting for other online reviews to see how it wears/washes before getting it. It does look really cute on so I was tempted to get it due to the stackable cardmember discounts. I found that it runs true to size. I may order it in the whisper white color to try since I've been looking for a winter white cardigan.

I love this gorgeous mustard sweater as seen on Whiteney. I noted the item number (442213) but it looks like it's new in stores first. It's not sold out online. Once it becomes available it will be assigned a slightly different name and the item's stock images will also be posted. It's very soft and cozy and has more of a relaxed fit with the cutest balloon sleeves that run longer.

 LOFT Crushed Velvet Swing Dress, size 0 regular

One of my followers asked me to try on this pink dress for my Instagram stories. The online store locator showed that my local store had it in petites but I was only able to find 0 regular to try. It has a very wide and swingy fit but I would say that it fits true to size. I probably need this dress in my usual size 00 or 0P. I noticed that the arm holes are cut a bit higher. For reference I'm 5' 2.5" so if you're petite and prefer  a shorter hemline as pictured in their stock image then I would try the dress in petites.

I love this cardigan but when I was checking online yesterday I noticed a lot of negative reviews about pilling while wearing it and after laundering. I wore both the biscuit heather and clay fire colors this week for work but I didn't notice any pilling. I also washed both cardigans last night but they turned out fine. I put one of the cardigans in a delicates bag but both cardigans washed well. We have a gentle high efficiency front-load washer. Update 11/24: The sleeves of this cardigan do become slightly more snug after washing.

I'm so glad I didn't order these pants online (see my previous review here). They run one size bigger so I took size 24/00P when I am normally size 25/0P. I snagged these work pants last week for under $11 when it was $25 off pants in stores and online. I went in store to shop so I was able to combine the following additional offers: the LOFT Cares card offer (extra 25% off $100+) with the FESTIVE40 cardmember offer (extra 40% off your entire purchase). I would recommend not freeing the pockets which are sewn shut as that will change the look of the pants. The bow belt is removable.

I wanted this striped dress but I haven't found size 0P to try (see size 0P on Su by swipping left in her post. I found size 2P to try but it's too roomy through the waist and hips. I'm pretty sure I need size 0P since Su and I are the same size.

Su also recommended this comfy v-neck swing sweater. Size XS regular has a very generous fit. I would recommend going down at least two sizes for the best fit. I'm going to look for this in size XXSP in whisper white.

I loved this swiss dot blouse so much I wore it to work yesterday. If you have any swiss dot top recommendations please share!

LOFT Vintage Romance Blouse, size XSP

I love this blouse paired with my new work pants. As mentioned at the beginning of my post this vintage romance blouse fits true to size but it is slightly sheer. I ended up wearing yet another layering cami underneath even though it is fully lined in the body.

I was curious about this strped top with the lace details so I ordered it to try even though it was only available in regular missy. It runs very long and loose but I decided to keep it against the majority opinion that I should return it. I tried to shrink it for under 15 minutes on medium heat. It now fits me a bit better but the lace detail bunched up a bit since the overall length shrunk. I was able to steam out the lace so that it lays flat against the shirt.

I wanted to love this floral top since I love the color but it fits about one size bigger and it has a longer overall length. I wish it came in petites but the shirred balloon sleeves were a deal breaker for me. I tried to hide the poor fit by throwing a sweater vest over it but alas I will have to return this top.

I realized that I forgot to share this year's vail parka on my blog! I tried on size 00 which is a comfortable fit for layering underneath. For reference I'm 5' 2.5" and 110 pounds. Based on where the sleeves hit me I'd say that they're around 23.5" long. The faux fur lining on the hood is not detachable but it looks a lot better compared to the faux fur they used in past seasons (2015 review here). There were a few questions about the quality of the factory version versus the normal J.Crew version so please check out the comments in this post. The best deal for the pricier J.Crew coat is end of January-February but by then you will have to stalk your color and size online in the early AM pop backs. I snagged the dusty ginger color last year for $173.99 with Vicky's help.

This adorable bell sleeve top was 40% off so I brought it home to think over. I decided to return this top since it's not the best fit on me. I appreciate those of you that took the time to participate in my Instagram poll for your opinion as well. This saved me from a regret purchase. Size 00 regular has a short and boxy fit but I was really hung up on the cute bell sleeves with the tiny scallop details.

I also tried on this cute peplum top in girl's size 14. Sometimes I fit into girl's sizes but more often than not I find that girl's clothing is cut too boxy to be a flattering fit so I passed on this top. I do love the little bow on one shoulder and the tiny heart print.

Thanks for reading!
