I've been taking a break from social media since I've under the weather all week trying to get over a nagging cough that became more painful the more I coughed. I must have picked up a nasty virus last weekend because I hardly ever get sick. My husband thought I could use some retail therapy to cheer me up yesterday so I finally got a chance to check out the sale in person. The college students are coming back to town from all over the world so usually lots of people get sick around this time of year.

 Ann Taylor Paisley Top, size XS regular
Ann Taylor Paisley Top, size XS regular (updated review here)
Ann Taylor Devin Tailored Ponte Leggings, size 2P

This paisley top is my favorite item I tried on but the store I visited didn't have petites. Out of curiosity I tried on size XS regular which fits me really well even though it looked really boxy on the hanger. I carry a measuring tape on me and size XS regular has a 36" bust, 37" along the bottom hem and 20.5" total length. It's 100% polyester but the care instructions say dry clean only so I didn't get it yet. I've been able to wash a few other items that were 100% polyester despite the dry cleaning suggestion without any mishaps like this brushed dash shift dress I reviewed here. If I keep thinking about the top then I may have to pop into my local store to grab one tomorrow. I also grabbed the Devin tailored ponte leggings to try and size 2P has a 28" waist so they run about one size bigger. The material was really stretchy and comfortable but I thought they were too form fitting. I also didn't like the exposed zipper on one side.

 Ann Taylor Mosaic Flare Dress, size 0P

Next up is this mosaic flare dress which looked pretty unique on the model in the stock image but the cut and pattern was not at all flattering for my figure. Size 0P has a 27" waist so it didn't do anything to distract from my belly which is my problem area. I also thought the mosaic pattern looked more dated in person.

 Ann Taylor Cotton Sateen Sheath Dress, size 0P

I spotted this cotton sateen sheath dress in the sales rack and I believe it's sold out online. The coral color is really pretty and it seemed promising but I found that the pleats on the waist were very unflattering so I passed on the dress. Size 0P has a 28" waist so it runs about one size bigger.

My husband and I also went to Banana Republic to check out their Friend & Family event for 50% off 5 items. You can also get 40% off your entire purchase at their Factory stores. I ended up with 3 coupon codes and I used the online codes to order some classic fit non-iron dress shirts for my husband since they're his favorite shirts for work. We also found some more shirts for him in store and we stocked up on his favorite tumbled Italian leather belt. This year's version of the belt has less extra length at the end so it's more flattering.

 Banana Republic Textured Knit Boyfriend Blazer, size 0P

I tried on size 0P of this textured knit boyfriend blazer but the sleeves were slightly too short for me and they didn't look quite right cuffed since there is no lining. Some may find the sleeves too narrow/tight but they fit me okay. The jacket is soft and less structured than a typical blazer but I wasn't sure how often I'd reach for it so I ended up passing. The striped drapey pocket tee is a very oversized fit so I would recommend sizing down. I noticed that it received negative reviews online for the quality but in person the quality and fabric seemed okay. I also tried on the indigo skinny jeans in 2P (I own a pair from last year in 25/0P) and I think this year's version is thinner and a little bit more stretch. The petite length was about 2-3" too long for me so I cuffed it once in the above pictures. For reference, I'm 5'2 1/4" and prefer at 26.5" inseam. I ended up ordering a few sizes of the washed indigo skinny jeans to try.

 Shein White Black Plaid Short Sleeve Chiffon Blouse, size S

Banana Republic Indigo Denim Leggings, size 0/25 short (old/sold out style, review here)
Ann Taylor Mini Pebbled Signature Tote (review of white version here, current version here)
J.Crew Elsie Pumps With Enamel Heel in kraft brown (review here)

This is the only real outfit I wore this week since I worked from home the remainder of the week to keep my germs to myself. The grid print top is very on trend. I also love this H&M version. There is a short lining they sewed around the front and back of the round collar that you can sort of see since the material since top is slightly sheer. I also noticed that their stock image shows a vertical dart on the shoulders that wasn't present in the top I received and the pattern on the sleeves are not symmetrical as pictured.

Size S measurements are as follows:

13" shoulders
34" bust
37" circumference along the bottom hem
23.5" total length

My hips are currently around 35" so the top isn't as flowy as I'd prefer. If you're interesting in ordering this top I'd say size S fits more like size XS. It also looks really cute tucked into a black skirt since I showed a peek of the top on my snapchat (username: whatjesswore) about two weeks ago.

Review: J.Crew Elsie Pumps With Enamel Heel

 J.Crew Elsie Pumps With Enamel Heel in kraft brown
J.Crew Elsie Pumps With Enamel Heel in kraft brown which can be described as taupe

I got these Elsie pumps with the enamel heel for 30% off and J.Crew is still running a promotion for 30% off your purchase of $200+ or 25% off your purchase of $100+ with the code SHOPMORE. Please refer to my previous review of these pumps here. They also come in an all suede version. I took size 7 because I found that they run true to size to half a size larger. I usually take a half size up for heels but these had a noticeable pinky sized gap in the back of my heel when I tried on size 7.5. The 3.5" heels are very comfortable for work although they don't have as much padding for the balls of your feet. I can't wait to wear the Elsie pumps fall and if they go on further discount later in the season then I'll try to pick up a backup pair. I actually haven't bought pumps from J.Crew since this post and I still reach for the Sloane patent pumps and cap toe pumps. I regret not getting a backup pair of the patent pumps and I've been stalking eBay for another pair to no avail.

I bought this lace tee from LOFT the other day and I wore it to work on Friday. It's currently 40% off with the code SHAREIT. Please see my previous posts here and here for my fitting room reviews of some of their latest new arrivals. I got off work early due to summer hours and I stopped by my local outlets including Banana Republic Factory on the way home. I came across this bouclé moto jacket which was on sale for 60% off in store and my husband really loved it so I decided to bring it home. It's currently on sale online for $59.99 here.

The jacket is a hi-lo style so it's longer in the front and shorter in the back and the zippers for the sleeves and pockets are functional. It's lined and mid-weight so it should be the perfect layering piece into early fall. I'd say the jacket fits true to size. I also tried on 2P but the shoulders were a bit too wide for me making the jacket look boxy while 0P fits me perfectly. Please check out this picture I posted to Instagram for another view of this jacket from the sides.

For those who do not have a Banana Republic Factory nearby, size 0P measurements are as follows:

14" shoulders*
33" bust (measured pit to pit with the jacket zipped)
31" waist (measured with the jacket zipped)
22.5" front length
18.75" back length
22.25" sleeve length
12" upper arm circumference* for the sleeves

*Due to the thicker material the sleeves and shoulders may feel tighter for some.

 Old Navy Women's Sleeveless Midi Dress, size XSP

Gucci Abbey Tote (old from 2007)

I ordered this sleeveless midi dress from Old Navy with my latest order for their jeans since this dress reminded me of the Lou & Grey crinkle maxi dress. The Lou & Grey version sold out in petites rather quickly so I figured it wouldn't hurt to try the Old Navy version and I'm glad I took a chance because this dress is really comfortable and flattering on. The shoulder straps do cut in more than I prefer but I wore my cropped linen cotton denim jacket over it today. I'd say that this dress fits true to size and the measurements of XSP are as follows:

34" bust (measured pit to pit)
26" empire waist (the waist is very stretchy)
13.75" total length for the empire top
32" skirt length
24" skirt length on the sides
45.75" total length

I stopped by Ann Taylor to see which new arrivals I could cross off of my growing fall wishlist for LOFT and Ann Taylor. I wanted the paisley shift dress when I saw it online and noted that the color was less washed out than their stock image. The store I visited didn't have this dress in petites for me to try on but I wanted to share the true color of this top in the picture below.

 Ann Taylor Paisley Shift Dress

The polka dot Ann cardigan is more oatmeal colored than cream. Refer to this picture here. The floral garland dress is made of a thicker, structured material but the print is exactly as pictured online. At Banana Republic I saw this textured knit boyfriend jacket on display and the indigo color is my favorite. They only had regular missy sizes so I hope I can find it in petites to try on another day.

UPDATED LOFT Fitting Room Reviews & OOTDs

 LOFT Fitting Room Reviews on www.whatjesswore.com
I went out to dinner with my husband tonight and swung by my local LOFT again for about half an hour to see if they put out anything new. I have a lot of items on my wishlist but I haven't had a chance to find all of them in stores to try on for size. Please refer to my previous post here for more reviews of the latest new arrivals.

 LOFT Lace Tee in whisper white, size XSP
LOFT Lace Tee* in whisper white, size XSP (see size XXSP on StylishPetite)
*Update 3/29/16: It's back in stock for Spring 2016! Buy it here.  
LOFT Ultrasoft City Chinos in Marisa Fit, size 0P
 Madewell Knotshine Necklace 
Andre Assous Josie Espadrille Sandals (review here, similar here and here)

I tried on this gorgeous lace tee yesterday in lilac shaddow (refer to this blog post here) but I decided to try it on in whisper white today. It ended being my only purchase tonight. I'm not sure if the petite version is sold out online or if it's not yet available online so I had to buy it in store. I love the length and fit of XSP and I think I would wear the whisper white color more even though the lilac shaddow is really pretty. If I can get it at over 60% off with the stackable code during a future sale then I may get the other color.

 LOFT Dotted Pocket Blouse, size XSP
LOFT Dotted Pocket Blouse, size XSP (also available in stripes)

I tried on this cute dotted pocket blouse in size XSP and it runs true to size. It's on my wishlist for now and I hope my size doesn't sell out. I also grabbed the ultrasoft city chinos since I was wearing a dress today and I needed a neutral bottom to try on with the tops. The champagne spritz color is a light pastel pink color. I grabbed sizes 00P and 0P and tried on the larger size first. Unfortunately size 0P was still a bit tight on me as you can see in these pictures. The thighs and pant legs pull causing unflattering wrinkles across my legs. I carry a measuring tape with me and decided to use it to measure the waist of both pairs. The waist of 00P was 26.5" while size 0P was 28" so these chinos run bigger which is typical of LOFT vanity sizing. Despite the larger waists the thighs and pant legs are very slim for the Marisa Fit since I'm skinny fat (big waist with skinny legs). I didn't try on 2P for comparison but I have a feeling it would be too loose all over. The 26" inseam is the perfect ankle length on me (for reference I'm 5' 2 1/2" and currently 115 pounds) and I like the side zippers. Note that there's a seam running down the back of each pant leg. Refer to the back view of the pants here (you may have to zoom in on Flickr once to see the seam).

 LOFT Mini Leaf Fluid Tee, size SP

I loved this mini leaf fluid tee which I tried on in size SP since the top runs one size smaller. I really liked this top in store but I'm glad I passed on ii because I found that one of the negative online reviews mentioned that the back had shrunk after washing. I wish they would use better material for these mixed media tops.

 LOFT Pleated Flare Dress, size XSP

Lastly, I tried on this pleated flare dress since it caught my eye on the rack on the way into the fitting room. Size XSP fit and draped really well and the pleats are the perfect touch of interest but I noticed that the dress was made of thinner material and unlined. I begrudgingly passed on this dress but if you get it then I would recommend being mindful of this if you're going to wear it out in direct sunlight.

I wore this printed swing dress again today (review here) but I couldn't help but notice that the length had shrunk significantly after I washed it in cold and air dried. I really hope it doesn't shrink yet again in the next wash or I won't be able to wear it at all.

 LOFT Lace Tee in lilac shaddow, size XSP
LOFT Lace Tee in lilac shaddow, size XSP (see size XXSP on StylishPetite)
Update 3/29/16: It's back in stock for Spring 2016! Buy it here

I tried on this pretty lace tee in both XSP and XXSP and both sizes fit me with size XSP being more loose and flowy and a little longer in length. I noticed that the sleeves are a bit snug in size XXSP (refer to this picture) and the sleeves were looser in the next size up. I love the pretty lace they used for this top and it's also available in whisper white which is an ivory color. The top runs one size bigger.

Size XSP measurements are as follows:

15.5" shoulders
11" arm circumference
36" bust (measured pit to pit)
44" circumference along the bottom hem
23" total length

 LOFT Lace Striped Top, size SP

Next up I tried on this lace striped top in sizes XSP (see it on me here) and SP. Size XSP fit me better in the arm holes but the length was too short and cropped. I believe I need this top in XXS regular for the extra length. I wish this shirt came in other colors since I tend to wear dark denim a lot come fall and winter and a navy top would blend in too much. I'd say this top runs true to size.

LOFT Lace Front Shell in silver coin, size XS regular
LOFT Lace Front Shell in silver coin, size XS regular

I saw this lace front shell online and I'm glad I was able to try this on in store first because XS regular is a petite friendly fit. Based on my fitting room try-on, I'd say that XS regular fits more like XS petite so I'd say that this top runs small. I like that this top is offered in three colors and it's perfect alone or worn under a cardigan or blazer.

 LOFT 3/4 Sleeve Sweater Tee, size XS regular
LOFT 3/4 Sleeve Sweater Tee, size XS regular

I love the half sleeves of this 3/4 sleeve sweater tee and the material is mid-weight so it's not see through and drapes well. It comes in three colors but it's such a nice basic top that I wish they offered even more colors to choose from. I tried on size XS regular which fits true to size if you prefer a loose, relaxed fit. I'm debating between size XXS or XS but I'm concerned the sleeves may be too tight if I take the smaller size.

 LOFT Brushstroke Silky Shirttail Tee, size XS regular

I tried on this brushstroke silky shirttail tee in size XS regular and it fits true to size so I would probably need this top in size XXS regular. I love the longer short sleeves and the fit is boxy but flowy so it'll be flattering as long as you get the right size.

 LOFT Striped Short Sleeve Dress, size XS regular

I was looking for this striped short sleeve dress in petites but they only had regular missy sizes at my local store. I am trying on size XS regular in the picture above which was a few inches too wide on me (refer to this picture here). Note that the regular missy length falls right above the knee caps on me. I'd say that this dress fits true to size and I would need the petite version for a more flattering length and fit. I don't care for the higher neckline so I'll probably pass on this dress. It's made of a thicker material so it will be perfect in the fall with tights.

 LOFT Relaxed Cardigan, size SP

I thought this boyfriend style relaxed cardigan was very versatile so I tried on SP which fits me really well. I actually sized up to SP because the arms are tighter in XSP. It drapes well and comes in three different colors.

 LOFT Mini Dot Shirred Dress, size 0 regular

Lastly, I tried on this mini dot shirred dress in size 0 regular. It doesn't yet come in petites online but size 0 regular is petite friendly and hits me at my natural waist. Based on my try-on, size 0 regular fits like size 0P. Note that I'm currently at my heaviest weight at 115 pounds which is why size 0 doesn't look as loose and flowy on me when compared to the online stock image.

Old Navy Women's Printed Swing Dress in white bird print, size XSP (review below)
Madewell Knotshine Necklace 
Andre Assous Josie Espadrille Sandals (review here, similar here and here)

I tried on this linen cotton denim jacket in size XSP and it's a relaxed fit but I prefer size XXSP for a more cropped fit. The sleeves were short on me (I prefer a 23" sleeve length) so I rolled them up twice but they should fit other petites perfectly. From what I can tell this looks like the same exact jacket from last year (see my review here).

LOFT Trapeze Tee, size XS regular
LOFT Trapeze Tee, size XS regular
 LOFT Modern High Waist Skinny Ankle Jeans in Dark Rinse Wash, size 24/00 regular

I wanted this cute trapeze tee after seeing it on Cece here. I tried on size XS regular but it's very roomy and there was too much excess fabric on the sides and in the back. Almost all sizes are sold out online but there was plenty of size XS and M in the sales rack at my local LOFT. I also tried on the modern high waist skinny ankle jeans in 24/00 regular because it looked like they might fit but the 28" inseam was too long and the thighs were a bit too baggy on me. I have a bigger waist but thin legs so I gravitate towards super skinny legging jeans which have more stretch. The waist of the 24/00 regular fits more like size 2 since LOFT has vanity sizing on their bottoms requiring you to go down 1-2 sizes.

OTHER REVIEWS

I stopped by J.Crew tonight to see if I could try on the Elsie pumps and I was delighted that my local store had them in my size to try on. I asked the sales associate to try on size 7.5 for comparison but size 7 fit me perfectly so I'd say these run true to size to half a size larger since I'm usually size 7.5 in heels. I'm waiting for them to go on sale because the kraft brown color is the perfect neutral color for fall outfits. Please refer to the clip I saved from my snapchat (username: whatjesswore) here for my in-store try-on . If the video is very blurry I took a screenshot here. The Elsie pumps are very comfortable since I have slightly wider feet and there is a bit of toe cleavage. The 3 1/2" heel height and classic silhouette make the Elsie pumps a classic style that will surely become a closet favorite.

Lastly, I received my latest Old Navy order last tonight and I wanted to do a quick update yesterday so I had added the following review to the end of my post from 8/1. However,  I believe this prevents most of my readers from seeing the updates so I'm bumping this review to the bottom of this post. The girls jeggings in dark wash, size 10 plus are made of a thin stretchy material with a 27.5" waist and 25" inseam so they were too short for me. The pockets are smaller so if you have curves then the small pockets provide less coverage and look very odd in the back. The girls super skinny jeans in rinse wash, size 10 plus have a 27.5" waist and a 26" inseam so they were very close to my ideal inseam of 26.5". This pair had less stretch than the jeggings and fit like a women's 2P. I rubbed my fingers against the wash but I didn't notice any color transfer. I prefer my skinny jeans to have more tapered ankles so this pair didn't make the cut for this reason. The girls jeans come with an adjustable elastic waistband which is very helpful if you need a more custom fit or have waist gap issues.

 Old Navy Girls Sleeveless Swing Dress in white bird print, size XL
Old Navy Girls Sleeveless Swing Dress in white bird print, size XL

I also tried on this girls sleeveless swing dress in size XL and it's unlined but it shouldn't be see through with nude undergarments. The girls size XL fits like a regular XXS or XSP in my opinion and measures 34" in the bust, 33" total length in front and 39" total length in back. You can also refer to my at home try-on that I saved from my snapchat (username: whatjesswore) here. I thought the back of the dress had too much material making it look more like a mumu or maternity dress but the front was super cute with the two drapey pockets and shorter hemline.

The women's version of the printed swing dress is very loose fitting dress in the smallest size they offer. Size XSP measurements are as follows: 34" bust, 31" waist, 33" total length. Refer to this clip that I saved from my snapchat here. In addition to the keyhole opening in the back there is a hidden side zipper that I didn't notice right away. The dress is so loose that I was able to pull the dress over my head without unzipping it. On the plus side the women's dress is lined unlike the girls version. I steamed out the wrinkles last night and I ended up keeping and wearing it out today but I probably should have returned it. The looser fit gives the dress a more cutesy look which I tend to tire of quickly. All of the other items went back for fit reasons. One last detail of note-- the fabric they used in the women's version is off white/cream (as seen here) while the girls version has a greyish tint. Update 8/13: The dress shrunk a few inches after I washed it in cold water and air dried it. Refer to this picture here and then refer to the picture at the top of this post to see how the dress fit before I laundered it.
