LOFT Sale Alert, Fitting Room Try-Ons & My Sales Picks

LOFT is offering 50% off everything online (includes Lou & Grey) and free shipping with code WRAPIT. The sale ends tonight 12/10 at 2:59AM ET but hopefully they extend this sale. They also currently have a promotion in stores for 50% off tops and sweaters so I took home a few items tonight. A few of the things I had recently ordered ended up being the wrong size so they'll need to go back since I hadn't had an opportunity to shop in store to see and try things on for size since Thanksgiving.

Here are some of my LOFT picks and fitting room try-ons:

LOFT Merino Wool Open Sweater Jacket, size XS
LOFT Merino Wool Open Sweater Jacket, size XS (another view here)
I wanted this jacket so badly and it's currently sold out online. I was beyond excited when the helpful associates at Prudential located one XS in store on the mannequin. They also let me use my $25 cash card on my purchase tonight. The sleeves are long if you're normally petites like me but with my longer arms I can wear 24-25" sleeves so they fit me perfectly.
LOFT Animal Jacquard Sweater, size S

Lou & Grey Contrast Cardigan, size XS
Lou & Grey Contrast Cardigan, size XS
I loved this cardigan since I spotted it online and I'm so glad it didn't disappoint in real life. The lavender color is a lovely neutral.

LOFT Lace Front Shell, size XXSP
LOFT Lace Front Shell, size XXSP
I'm usually XSP so I'd say this runs one size bigger.

LOFT Shadow Animal Spot Sweatshirt Blouse, size XSP
LOFT Shadow Animal Spot Sweatshirt Blouse, size XSP
The sleeveless shell here runs very long so I would recommend it in petites.

LOFT Striped Mixed Media Sweater, size SP
LOFT Striped Mixed Media Sweater, size SP
Size SP fits similar to regular XS seen on me here.
Update 12/12: I received size XXS which I ordered online in grey and white stripes. The sleeves were tighter so I decided to keep regular XS. Note that the back of the grey striped version has a slightly sheer back but it doesn't bother me. Also size SP (above) and regular XS (two sweaters pictured directly below) fit very similar.

Out of the three colors I tried on in this sweater I think the grey one is most flattering on me.

LOFT Textural Tunic Sweater, size XSP
LOFT Textural Tunic Sweater, size XSP (colorblock version here)

LOFT Blurred Animal Spot Blouse, size XSP
LOFT Blurred Animal Spot Blouse, size XSP
The sleeveless shell here runs very long so I would recommend it in petites.

Lou & Grey Drapeneck Tunic, size XS
Lou & Grey Drapeneck Tunic, size XS
This tunic sweater looked really long on me in real life so I would probably need it in PXS.

LOFT Pointelle Button Back Sweater, size XS
LOFT Pointelle Button Back Sweater, size XS
Update 12/12: I ordered XXS online which arrived today. It actually looks like how it does on the online stock image but I didn't love it on me so this one will be going back.

Ann Taylor Lace Overlay Top, size S
Ann Taylor Lace Overlay Top, size S (now 50% off with code JOYFUL50)
Size S fits me okay but I had the chance to try on size XS the other day and it was more flattering and not overly form fitting. I'm waiting for another 50% sale on tops to snap this one up.
