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.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM

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.

Thanks for reading!
