Weekly Reviews + Black Friday Sales

 A New Day Chunky Cowlneck Tunic, size XS
Zara Coat (past season)
LOFT Sateen Leggings in black from last year (this year's review here)
Tory Burch Sullivan Boots (past season review here)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Here are this week's try-ons to help you prep your shopping carts. I polled my Instagram stories followers and over 60% that responded are holding out until Cyber Monday. When I checked my previous years' blog posts LOFT has been offering 50% off plus FREE shipping on Cyber Monday. I guess we shall find out soon enough! You can follow all of my recent purchases here.

 Lou & Grey Snowbird Sweater, size XS regular

This textured sweater was on my wishlist and I finally found size XS regular to try on today. It definitely has an oversized, but still flattering fit. I would need my usual size XXS for the best fit but my preferred size is currently sold out online. In person I felt like the textured stripes added bulk. It contains 5% alpalca but it didn't feel very itchy when I tried it on. See a close up of the sweater here. You can also this sweater on Lilly in size S regular. I love her chic, minimalist style and she loves LOFT and Ann Taylor too! Thanks to Su for sharing a new blogger for me to follow.

I saw this cardigan on Uyen in size M here and I knew had to try it on. She and I are of similar size from chatting with her via DM since she is usually 00 and XXS regular at LOFT. If you love dresses and ultra feminine and on-trend styles then you need to follow Uyen!

 Lou & Grey Rainbow Chip Sweater, size XS regular

I love how the texture of this sweater reminds me of Funfetti. It's currently sold out online and it's also selling down very quickly in stores. It has a very wide fit through the body but if you view the video clip of my try-on you can see that the looser fit is adorable. It's also very cozy!

LOFT Textured Cowlneck Tunic Sweater, size XSP

I reviewed size XXSP previously here but after seeing it on Annie I had to try on the next size up which is actually my usual size XSP. This tunic sweater runs longer so if you normally take regular missy sizes you may want to try petites for a better overall length.

 LOFT Mixed Plaid Infinity Scarf
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love the mixed plaid print on this infinity scarf. The larger and small plaid print are a fun combination for added interest.

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

I love and would recommend this soft textured bell sleeve sweater. The bell sleeves are just right so they won't get in the way. I tried on size XS regular which was a bit loose on me at the chest. I believe I need my usual size XXS regular for the best fit and length. You can see the aloe shade color here.

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

I was curious about this darker wash but I wasn't a fan of the distressing on this pair. I love and prefer the lighter wash I reviewed here. Both pairs fit as expected in my usual size 25/0P.

 LOFT Plaid Double Breasted Blazer, size 00P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

One of my followers asked me to try on this blazer for my Instagram stories. I finally found it in stores and in petites to try. I found that size 00P fits like size 0P. The sleeves are a bit short on me since I have longer arms that many petites. This blazer reminds me of a menswear inspired blazer that I still have from Theory as reviewed here.

 LOFT Shawl Collar Cardigan, size XXSP (petite item no. 455150)
LOFT Shawl Collar Cardigan, size XXSP (petite item no. 455150)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I got this cardigan in store on Friday when it 40% off. I just had to have it since the color andmaterial reminds me of my beloved mockneck swing sweater from last year. I wish I waited so I could have purchased it at a better price now that it's 50% off. Note that this grey cardigan is new to stores first but it should be available for purchase online soon!

LOFT Velvet Jewelry Case

This is really cute travel sized jewelry case and it would make a great present this holiday paired with some cute jewelry. I love the blue essence color.

ANN TAYLOR

 Ann Taylor Tulip Tiered Dress, size 00P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I ordered this dress in size 00P since Su (swipe left in her post 5 times, she was trying on size 0P) fits like size 0P. The waist is a bit snug on me but hopefully I will prioritize exercise this year and slim down in my waist which is my problem area. You can also see this dress on Lilly. The dress is fully lined and the color palette makes it perfect to style and wear year round by changing out the footwear and adding seasonably appropriate layer on top as needed (e.g. jean jacket for spring, cozy cardigan for fall/winter).

 Ann Taylor Boucle Funnel Neck Coat, size XXS regular
Click here, here and here to view the clip from my try-on

I've been looking for a winter white coat but the sizing runs large for this coat. Size XXS regular was too long on me so I believe size XSP would be the best fit. It's not a warm coat and more for looks so it's not a must have for me since I live in New England.

 Ann Taylor Ruffled V-Neck Blouse, size XXSP

The ruffles and burgundy color of this top caught my eye in stores so I ordered size XXSP. The online reviewers mentioned that this top  ran big so I'm glad I sized down since size XXSP fits like size XSP. It's a beautiful blouse for the holidays since the ruffle details make it look dressy.

TARGET

 Target A New Day Chunky Cowlneck Tunic, size XS
Click here to view another clip from my try-on

I saw this sweater on @closet_boss and I had to try it for myself especially since Target is offering free shipping through the holidays. I wasn't too sure about the giant cowlneck/turtleneck but I really love the texture. My husband loved this sweater so I decided to keep it. For reference I'm 5' 2.5'.

EXPRESS

Express Balloon Sleeve Ruffle Sweater, size XS regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

Lastly I swung by Express because a few bloggers I follow have been doing sponsored posts for them. I had to see if this highly recommended sweater was worth all the hype and attention it was receiving. I had to admit it's a really cute sweater but the overall length is short so it doesn't cover my front and backside which I prefer. It's also a thinner sweater so it's slightly sheer in the soft alabaster color which requires a layering cami.

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
J.Crew Chateau Parka in dusty ginger, size 00 regular (last seen here, Factory version reviewed here)
Lou & Grey Fuzz Boucle Cowl Sweater, size XXS regular (review here, sold out online, similar)

 Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage Sneaker
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

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 Mix & Match Outfit Idea
LOFT Mix & Match Outfit Idea:
LOFT Vintage Romance Blouse, size XXS regular (review below, review of size XSP here)
LOFT Butterfly Forest Blouse, size XSP (review 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

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.

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.

Weekend Sales & Weekly Fitting Room Reviews

 LOFT Double Breasted Coat, size XXSP

Happy Friday! This week felt like the weekend would never come and tomorrow I'll be heading down to Philly to see my family.

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.

Valid in stores and online. @natalie99183 also kindly shared the combinable code EXTRA10 for an extra 10% off which you can redeem online as well.

Update 11/12: If you read a previous version of this blog post (e.g. from Bloglovin or if you subscribe via email) I have proactively removed the combinable in-store offers.

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.

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 Floral Pleated Flounce Dress, size XXSP

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.

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

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?

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:

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:

 Italian Melton Wool Blend Long Coat, size XSP

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.
