 LOFT Fitting Room Reviews on www.whatjesswore.com - 9/29/15

Update 9/30 - The flash sale is over but you still can get 40% off tops and sweaters at LOFT. Also get an extra 40% off all sale styles. Valid in stores and online. Since no code is needed you can use the stackable code INSIDER235 online for an additional 25% off full-price purchases of $100+ (excludes Lou & Grey items). That's a total of 55% off select full-price styles after discounts!

-----
Get 50% off your full-price purchase at LOFT with code LUCKY50. Lou & Grey exclusions apply. Sale ends Wednesday 9/30, 10AM ET. I registered for the email and received the code for 40% off code but I tried LUCKY50 for 50% off and it worked for me. I ordered the autumn anorak pictured below, modern skinny jeans in the iron grey wash, two more pairs of my favorite denim leggings in the vivid dark indigo wash (review here) and the boyfriend cardigan in the golden sand color.

 LOFT Autumn Anorak, size XS regular
LOFT Autumn Anorak, size XS regular (see it styled on Lofty Closet here)
Chelsea28 Scallop Edge Tank, size XS (old/sold out, review here)
Old Navy Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans (old wash, current version here)
Cole Haan Air Monica Ballet Flats (available here in other colors)

I've wanted this autumn anorak for a while but I never found the smaller sizes to try on in store since it was always sold out in XS. I finally found size XS regular in store today and the relaxed fit of the regular missy size isn't overwhelming but the sleeves are wide as another reviewer noted. The sleeves look much cuter folded and scrunched up. The material is thin so I'm afraid I may not get as much wear out of it when the temperatures start to drop. I hope I can layer it to get the most use out of it until spring comes back around. It's the perfect weight for a spring, summer and early fall jacket. See the autumn anorak perfectly styled by Lofty Closet here, Skirt The Rules blog here and by Megan here.

 LOFT Fall Flutter Top, size XSP

LOFT has been featuring this fall flutter top a lot so I figured I'd try it on to see what all the hype was about. Size XSP is a loose boxy fit with wide arms so I believe XXSP would have been a better fit but like my feelings on the fall flutter dress (review here) I wasn't a fan of this color and print on me. I also tried on the ultrasoft city chinos again (review here and here) since they were on sale and 40% off in store. This time around I noticed that the outline of the pockets show through the thin material. With flats on I felt that these pants did nothing to elongate my legs since the opening at the bottom wasn't as tapered as I prefer. It was also a too form fitting on my backside (refer to this picture here) so I'd have to wear longer length tops over it to feel less exposed.

 LOFT Gingham Henley Shirt, size XXSP

Next up is this gingham henley shirt which I was seriously considering (I dragged it around the store with me) but size XXSP was the smallest size and it was still a bit too wide on me so I passed for now. This top runs at least one size bigger. It looks really cute with the blush pants (above) and my regular jeans (below). The material they used is thin and similar to the sleeveless gingham swing shell (review here) and gingham gamine dress (review here) from the summer.

 LOFT Gingham Henley Shirt, size XXSP

 LOFT Floral Button Back Swing Shell, XS regular

I liked the little flowers on this grey floral button back swing shell and I tried on XS regular for size since my store didn't have this top in petites. Luckily XS regular fit like XSP so it fit me really well and the arm holes weren't too big. The buttons down the back are a sweet detail but they'll be covered up by a cardigan this season so I passed for now. This top would also a great addition to wear year round.

 LOFT Button Back Chambray Shirt, size XSP

I tried on XSP in this button back chambray shirt and it fits true to size. I've never tried on a chambray-like t-shirt before but I can see the appeal. Personally I would prefer size XXS for a slightly longer length so that it will cover my crotch more. The chambray fabric they used is mid-weight so it's not too thin. Refer to this picture for the backside of this shirt.

 LOFT Clean Tunic Shell, size XXSP

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect layering cami and this clean tunic shell doesn't disappoint with the flattering drape and thicker straps. It's long enough to cover your crotch and rear. I tried on size XXSP which runs about one size bigger since I'm usually size XSP at LOFT. For pattern lovers this cami also comes in a lovely grey print. I wish it came in more solid colors other than black and white.

 LOFT Soft Swing Dress, size XS/SP

I've come across this soft swing dress many times but I finally tried it on today since I found size XS/SP to try. It's very pretty on and looks best belted to give it some shape. Size XS/SP should fit sizes 0P-2P. The arms holes may be snug if you have larger upper arms. If you're really petite then the pleats may be too much material when belted at the waist. Note that the dress is unline but it's not see through by any means.

Get 40% off tops and sweaters @loft today. This #Lace Tee is included in this promotion (I took size XSP). You can also use code INSIDER955 for an additional 25% off the full-price promotion styles! 👯 |  @liketoknow.it www.liketk.it/1MF7E #liketki

Zara Flat Chain Sandals (older style/sold out, review here, similar here)  

Lastly, this pretty lace tee (review here) is available in regular missy and petite size. Petites became available a few weeks ago for those of you still looking for this top. I love the ivory color best and it's one of my favorite purchases from LOFT.

LOFT Split Neck Tunic & Tweed Fringe Wrap Skirt

 LOFT Split Neck Tunic & Tweed Fringe Wrap Skirt
LOFT Split Neck Tunic, size XXSP (review of XXSP here and SP here, similar here)
LOFT Tweed Fringe Wrap Skirt, size 0P (dry clean only)
Louis Vuitton Marais BB in Monogram Empreinte, color Noir
J.Crew Elsie Pumps With Enamel Heel in kraft brown (review here)

I was looking for this split neck tunic (polka dot version here) in stores and found size XXSP at one of my local LOFT stores. I also spotted this tweed fringe wrap skirt on the tables and there was only one left in size 0P so I tried it on for size. See my fitting room picture here for a side view of the dress and you can see the back view of this dress here. It's half an inch longer in the front than the back but it will appear shorter due to the curve of your backside. I ended up getting this outfit for 40% off plus $25 off with one of my cash cards and I used my $20 LOFT rewards so it felt like a steal at $20.40 for two great pieces. The tweed skirt will look really cute with booties too so I hope I get a lot of wear out of it. There is a similar Ann Taylor version available in black here.

Tweed Fringe Wrap Skirt, size 0P (review here) own it, love it

Here are the measurements of size 0P:

26" waist
34.5" hips
18" front length
17.5" back length

Tonight is the last night for 40% off everything at LOFT and I'm tempted to order items from my wishlist but at the same time I will probably wait to see if I can get a better price in the near future. Please check out my previous post for my sales picks. There's always another sale at LOFT so please check out this page for the latest sales and coupon codes.

40% Off Everything at LOFT & 50% Off Select Items at Ann Taylor

LOFT Fall Outfit
LOFT Infinity Scarf (old)
LOFT Relaxed Utility Jacket (old/sold out style, review here)
Lou & Grey striped top (old)
Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM in Damier Ebene
Vince Camuto Franell bootie (sale alert and review below, make sure to price match via Nordstrom)

Get 40% off EVERYTHING at LOFT. Use code FALL40. Valid in stores and online. If you have cash cards then you can use them in stores on top of this latest sale promotion. The popular blocked merino wool jacket (item no. 380894, last year's review here, featured here, similar here) is back in stock this season. I was trying to be more price conscious and wait for a better sale but size XXS sold out earlier this week. I'm hoping someone will return it and I'll come across it in my online stalking but the same thing happened to me last year and I settled on size XS.

Ann Taylor is also having 50% off select items in stores and online. Use code HELLOFALL. Sale ends 9/28 3AM ET.

The paisley top I reviewed in this post is really pretty but I had an issue where the one I purchased had a defect with the hem on one sleeve after I laundered and air dried it. They used a hard crease on the hem but didn't reinforce the hem with an invisible stitch. I don't sew anything besides buttons so I'm not sure if I'm describing this issue using the correct terminology. This issue can be easily resolved by ironing the area where the hem "fell" but I have to do this every time. I also ordered this cotton twill anorak in XXS regular but  I realized that I never reviewed it. Usually XXS is a quasi petite size but just slightly longer in the length and sleeves by about an inch. In this case, the regular missy size was roomy and long in the overall length and sleeve length. I'd say the regular missy size may even be a better fit for tall ladies as well. I was also able to try on small petite in store and the sleeve length was just right so I believe petites may be more true to size. I would need this jacket in XSP for a better fit.

Lastly as a quick update, I received the Vince Camuto Franell booties (recommended by Stylish Petite) tonight and they fit true to size. The width is slightly narrow so you may want to try ordering a half size up if you plan to wear them with thicker socks. I noticed that they're on sale on Vince Camuto's website for 25% off using the code FRIENDS25. Sale ends 9/27. I bought the charcoal color from Zappos (this color also available via Nordstrom and Solesociety) but I also just ordered the wild mushroom color via Vince Camuto's website. Note: Nordstrom price matches so definitely ask customer service for assistance. Vince Camuto's website does not offer free return shipping if it doesn't work out for you.

Happy shopping!

Review: Topshop Drape Front Blouse

 Pink & Grey
 Topshop Drape Front Blouse, size 4P (buy via Nordstrom, also available in sleeveless and long-sleeve options)
Lou & Grey Cobblestone Moto Jacket, size XXS regular (review of size XS regular here)
LOFT Denim Leggings in Vivid Dark Indigo Wash, size 25/0P (online exclusive, review here)
Shein Grey Twist Lock Metallic Embellished PU Tote Bag c/o (sold out, this bag is similar to this Fendi Micro Peekaboo style)

Happy Wednesday! I ordered this Topshop drape front blouse in 4P (my first Topshop order!) after reading Extra Petite's review that she sized up to 2P. It seemed sheer and boxy when I took it out of the package but when I put it on it had a effortless, feminine drape. A skin tone bra is definitely required. The v-neck isn't too low to require a cami for modesty and the overlapping drape in the front doesn't open up to expose your belly. I actually wanted the white color but it's out of stock so I ordered pink out of curiosity. Despite the hefty price ($60) for a polyester blouse, I liked it enough to keep it. This top will look very classy tucked into skirts as well. I do wish the front was a little longer when worn untucked but I think the v-neck would be too low and revealing in the regular size.

I love this red and white long sleeve striped t-shirt. The material is soft and cozy and it's not tissue thin unlike many t-shirts these days. I'm wearing size S which fits like XS and the long sleeves fit me perfectly (refer to this picture). This top is a very affordable dupe of a popular designer tee for less than $15. I wore my new LOFT denim legging jeans (review here) today and I'm happy to report that they didn't stretch out on me and kept their shape. I'm waiting for a better sale so I can stock up on a few more pairs.

I noticed that the popular blocked merino wool jacket (similar here) is back in stock but it's only available as an online exclusive. I purchased size XS last year as reviewed here (also featured here) but I recently sold it to a reader that's around the same size as me. I'm waiting for the next sale to order size XXS regular and I'm hoping my size doesn't sell out. Size XS regular was a bit roomy (too much material for my smaller chest) otherwise I wouldn't have let it go.

Shop my sales picks here:



 Grey Cobblestone Moto Jacket, size XXS regular

I received this Lou & Grey cobblestone moto jacket in size XXS regular and this size fits me better than XS regular which I reviewed here but the sleeves are still a bit too long. I usually push up the sleeves anyway so it's not a big deal. It also looks really cute worn open as seen here. See it styled by the lovely Megan here and I noticed she folded up the sleeves too. I don't think I'd ever wear it buttoned since I like the drapey collar. I actually almost broke my nails trying to unbutton the sweater jacket. I'd say this jacket runs true to size. Update 12/3: Thicker fall version here.

These denim leggings in the vivid dark indigo wash (pictured above and below) are my new favorite jeans and I plan on stocking up on a few more pairs. The 27" inseam is near perfect on me since my preferred inseam is 26.5". They run about one size bigger since I took them in size 25/0P but I'm currently size 26 in other brands I've recently tried. Note that this style is very fitted through the legs with slim fit ankles which I personally love since I think it helps to elongate my legs. The mid-rise waistband sucks in everything so it doesn't create a muffin top or cut off your ability to breathe and the material is stretchy and comfortable. The material they used is also not too thin and the fabric doesn't appear to bleed when I rub my fingers against the wash. Update 10/5: I would recommend washing the jeans at least once before wearing them since I noticed some color transfer on the top edge of my light suede booties. I haven't noticed any color transfer on my clothing and furniture (we have an off white couch).

The measurements of size 0/25P are as follows:

7.5" rise
26" waist (stretches comfortably to 28")
34" hips
27" inseam
8.5" leg opening

After trying quite a few of the latest styles in skinny jeans from both Old Navy and Banana Republic I gave in and ordered the Paige Verdugo crop skinny jeans (recommended by Stylish Petite) to try in size 26. Even though the waist fit I returned them because the the butt, thighs, legs and ankles were too loose resulting in a less polished look. The material they used was also thinner so the Verdugo crop jeans would be better suited for spring and summer or those in warmer climates year round. Thin jeans offer very little protection against the winter wind chill here in New England.

 Grey Cowl Tunic, size XSP
Lou & Grey Signature Cowl Tunic, size XSP (other colors here and here)
Madden Girl Poppyy Espadrille Flat (sold out online and on clearance in stores, review here, similar Target version here as recommended by My Girly Armour, another similar version here)   

Next up is this unbelievably soft Lou & Grey signature cowl tunic which I took in size XSP. Update 10/4: After wearing this sweater a few times, I'd say this it runs one size bigger due to the loose, longer tunic length but the sleeves may be a little snug for some. The soft color is what drew me to this sweater and it will look really cute with booties this fall and winter. Speaking of booties, I received the Hillsy Vince Camuto booties last week but I wasn't a fan of the tabs and how high the shaft came up. I'm going to try and order the Franell booties recommended by Stylish Petite.

 LOFT Striped Textured Dolman Tee, size XSP

I tried on this striped textured dolman tee in XSP. I immediately noticed how tight the sleeves were although I wouldn't go so far to say that they would cut off my circulation as another online reviewer  mentioned but please take note. Aside from the sleeves the top fits true to size and drapes very well. Here is another view of the dolman sleeves with my arms extended. I noticed tiny flecks of white across the material so it may be prone to pilling. As a quick care tip fabric shavers can extend the life of your favorite articles of clothing that have really bad pilling. (Please read this comment for fabric shaver do's and don'ts.) I didn't discover this lovely contraption until college but they can go through a lot of batteries depending on how much pilling you're trying to remove.

 LOFT Dotted Ruffle Shell, size XSP

I loved the print on this dotted ruffle shell but unlike the dotblock ruffle shell I reviewed here I noticed that the split hem came up about 1" higher in this version. I tried on size XSP and it fits true to size. I'm not sure why petites is not available online but I need size XXS regular for the extra length. Unfortunately my size is sold out but it's probably for the best. I saw this top on a few Boston ladies during my commute so it's been on my mind to give it another try.

 LOFT Fall Flutter Dress, size XSP

I believe I mentioned this fall flutter dress in a previous post and I finally found petites to try on last week to satisfy my curiosity. Size XSP fits true to size but I don't think the color does anything for me so I passed. The same color and print is also available as a top here.

 Ann Taylor Paisley Shift Dress, size XXSP

I tried on this paisley shift dress since I managed to find size XXSP in stores. Vicky informed me that size XXSP runs really big and I'd have to agree. I'd say this dress runs at least one size larger and petites may fit those of average height that usually take regular missy sizes especially if you prefer the length to hit as pictured in the stock image. I had my tape measure on me so the measurements of size XXSP are as follows:

34" bust (measured pit to pit)
32" waist
35" hips
34.5" total length

 Ann Taylor Striped Lace Shoulder Tee, size XS regular
Ann Taylor Striped Lace Shoulder Tee in silver frost heather, size XS regular
Ann Taylor Modern Skinny Jeans, size 0P

I ordered this striped lace shoulder tee in XXS regular a few weeks ago but I returned it since the lace detail didn't lay properly for the shirt I received. I wanted to re-order it in petites but XSP is currently sold out online. Size XS regular fits like a tunic length shirt on me but I'd say that this top fits true to size. I also tried on the modern skinny jeans and the petite inseam was about two inches too long for me so I had to fold the extra length. I'd say these jeans run about one size bigger depending on how fitted you like your skinny jeans.

 LOFT Split Neck Tunic, size XXSP
LOFT Split Neck Tunic, size XXSP (review of size SP here, polka dot version here)
Madewell Knotshine Necklace

I tried on size SP of this split neck tunic in vintage blush in this previous review and I finally managed to find size XSP (see it on me here) and XXSP to try on the other night. I checked the color options online and I think this dark green color is only available in stores. This blouse runs big and and size XXSP pictured above fits me the best. Unlike size SP and XSP the vneck neckline of the size XXSP was not too low/revealing and doesn't require a cami. The sleeve length was also just right on me. Note that I have longer arms so the sleeves may be too long if you're really petite.

 LOFT Tweed knit Moto Jacket, size XXSP
LOFT Tweed Knit Moto Jacket (new arrival, not yet available online), size XXSP
 LOFT Lace Tee in lilac shaddow, size XXSP (also featured here, review here and here)

This tweed knit moto jacket was recommended by Lofty Closet. I tried on size XXSP but I should have also tried XSP for comparison. I'd say this jacket fits more true to size since XXSP was too tight on me when I tried to zip it up. The sleeves weren't too wide but the body of the jacket is slightly boxy. The material is very soft and cozy so it would be a perfect fall layer. This new arrival is currently only available in stores and my local LOFT at Prudential Center had it on the tables in petites. Tonight I was browsing their site and I noticed that the petite version of the lace tee is now available online! I wore the lilac color earlier this week and below is a picture of the true color in good lighting.

I've been wearing a lot of my oldies but goodies lately and of course they're all from LOFT. Yesterday I gave in and cut up a pair of my old jeans to convert them into denim shorts. I had wanted this pair from LOFT but it sold out before I could pull the trigger. Who knew denim shorts were so popular? Every other pair I've seen can be so pricey depending on the wash and retailer although I just ordered this pair in the brandon wash and this white version from J.Crew Factory to try since it was on sale plus free shipping today with code RINGRING.

Yesterday I went to the LOFT at Natick Mall to look for the lilac lace tee (review here and here) and I ended up getting it for $4.70. There were a few in size XSP and one XXSP left when I checked the racks for the lilac color. I printed out a LOFT Insider email for $25 off an in store purchase and when the sales associate entered the code it worked on top of the 40% off promotion. I couldn't believe my luck that I was able to get the top for a steal! I request a new LOFT Insider code at the start of each month to share on my blog but this is the first time I bothered to print it out and try it in store.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

 LOFT Dotblock Ruffle Shell, size XSP

I tried on this dotblock ruffle shell in XSP and the print is adorable but I wasn't a fan of the ruffle across the chest so I passed. I didn't think the length was too short unlike the online reviews but then again I have a smaller chest. I thought it fit true to size. It would look really cute paired with the boyfriend cardigan in the golden sand (mustard) color.

 LOFT Mini Dot Shirred Dress, size 4P (review of 00 regular here)
LOFT Mini Dot Shirred Dress, size 4P (review of 00 regular here)

I also tried on this mini dot shirred dress again in 4P since I was curious how petites would fit versus 00 regular I tried on and reviewed here. I found the petites to fit really small so size 4P fit me except the bust was a little bit large which you can't tell from the picture. The bust darts were a little out of place on me in person since it's a larger size than what I usually take. I'm usually a 0P or 00 regular at LOFT.
