Greetings from Philly! I'm spending the week here with my family and I've only been in town for a few days but I feel like I've eaten enough to last me the rest of my time here. As usual my little sister indulged me with a run to Cafe Soho for their amazing soy garlic chicken wings. I may be biased but I prefer their wings over the Bonchon chain stores.

LOFT Flecked Two-In-One Sweater, size XS regular (review of size M here, similar here)

I tried on this flecked two-in-one sweater in size M regular in this post and ordered size XXS and XS regular. Both sizes fit me but I decided to size up since it doesn't have much stretch so it was easier to put on and take off the larger size and it's still a cute fit. Update 8/9/16: A similar redesigned 3/4 sleeve version of this top returns for Fall '16!

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

 LOFT Flecked Two-In-One Sweater
LOFT Flecked Two-In-One Sweater, size M regular (similar here and here)

I recently ordered this flecked two-in-one sweater in XS and XXS regular but I had both of my orders sent to my parents' place since I wasn't sure how soon they would arrive. I tried on this top in size M regular more to satisfy my curiosity and it runs very large and roomy so I'll see which size I ended up going with. It feels more like a thick shirt than a sweater and I love the texture of this top and the cute ruffle at the hem. Update 8/9/16: A similar redesigned 3/4 sleeve version of this top returns for Fall '16!

 LOFT Marled Shoulder Zip Dress

This marled shoulder zip dress looked really cute on the hanger so I decided to try it on in size XSP and I like the loose relaxed fit. I liked the marled texture and the thicker material they used compared to some of their other similar style dresses. The quarter length sleeves are just slightly snug at the ends but not in a circulation restricting sort of way.

 LOFT Gingham Henley Tunic

This gingham henley tunic looked really roomy and long so I grabbed size XXSP to try and it fits about one size bigger. I thought there was still too much fabric at the waist (compare the left and right pictures) so I passed on this blouse but the lattice detail along the button placket is really cute. I would recommend going down at least one size for this blouse if you're ordering this online sight unseen.

 LOFT Pleated Stripe Blouse

This pleated stripe blouse looked really cute on the model in their online stock image but size XSP fits really boxy and loose so I'd say it runs about one size bigger. It's also very sheer in the whisper white color so a layering cami is a must.

 LOFT Striped Swing Tank
LOFT Striped Swing Tank, size XS regular

I loved how they styled this striped swing tank online so I had ordered it in XXS regular. I had the chance to try it on in size XS regular in store and it was a good, swingy fit except for the arm holes which were a bit too loose from the sides. I think the smaller size I ordered should fit but I'm concerned that the overall length may be too short for my taste. Size XS regular didn't cover enough of the front and my backside which is my usual preference. I'll know later this week which items work out when I get a change to go through my latest LOFT haul.

LOFT Outlet Grid Print Shell, size XXSP (style no. 385797)
LOFT Outlet Grid Print Shell, size XXSP (style no. 385797)

Lastly, I tried on this grid print shell (style no. 385797) at LOFT Outlet and fell in love with the fit and buttons down the back. LOFT outlet usually runs one size bigger than regular LOFT so I tried on size XXSP which fit me perfectly. Naturally this top went home with me even though $26.99 after discounts is pretty pricey in my opinion since I always score a better deal via regular LOFT.

I finally put up our mini Christmas tree this past weekend. I wasn't going to put it up at all but it really helped to put me in the holiday mood.

Our mini Christmas tree

I got this mini Pusheen plush for my little sister tonight from Newbury Comics. It's so cute with the tiny pink bow on its head and I may just have to keep it. I already got her a few other things but I like to gift a variety of little things just for fun.

 EOS Lip Balms wrapped like candies
Last minute gift idea:
EOS lip balms wrapped up like candies

I was stumped for gift ideas for my coworkers until I came across this cute idea from The Darling Desk to wrap EOS lip balms like candies. Check out her original version here. I didn't have any wrapping paper that looked like peppermints so I improvised using a different tissue paper for each scent. A pack of 5 lip balms is available for $10.99 at Costco. Costco is my favorite place for many things especially fruit and veggies and I'm obsessed with their pesto. For last minute gifters some retailers are guaranteeing overnight shipping by Christmas Eve if you order by tomorrow afternoon. Somehow this makes me nervous since there is always room for shipping delays that are outside the retailer's control. I would just run to the stores and hope to find something that I think the person would like or try making something like this adorable sock plushie tutorial.

A few of the new arrivals I wanted recently became available online so I jumped the gun and placed my first order late last night to secure my size. I should have waited to place my order until I had a chance to visit the store but that's what I get for being click happy. I saw some of the new arrivals in person and tried on a few items tonight and realized that a few of the items from my first order will have to go back due to sizing. I caved in and placed a second order when I came home since I can never tell when size XXS regular will sell out. Once it's sold out it's like size XXS regular never existed for a particular item.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

Ann Taylor Floral Flutter Sleeve Top, size XSP (old/sold out, review here)
LOFT Tech Stretch Skinny Ankle Pants in Marisa Fit, size 0P (old/sold out, review here)
Cole Haan Air Monica Ballet Flats (other colors available here)

I tried on this Lou & Grey signaturesoft shawl jacket in XS regular. See size S regular on Sara here. I have this jacket in grey and size XXS regular from last year and the fit and sizing is the same. It's washed really well (I wash on cold and air dry). You can see last year's version on me here and here. They added rib trim cuffs to this year's version on the sleeves and the back hem of this jacket but as you can see the drape of the jacket is the same. I prefer wearing this jacket worn open since I think it doesn't look very flattering zipped up. The olive melange color was a different shade in person and I wish it was the washed out olive color as pictured online since it would be more versatile in that hue. The jacket does run true to size and I would order this in size XXS regular for a better fit (shorter sleeves) but for now I'll just stick with the grey one that I already own. I usually regret buying the same thing in multiple colors and always favor one color over the other anyway.

Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Back Zip Tunic, size XS regular
Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Back Zip Tunic, size XS regular (also available via Lou & Grey)

This Lou & Grey signaturesoft cack zip tunic is similar to the cowl tunic that I have in XSP (see it on me here and here). It doesn't come in petites and XS regular was too loose on me so I hope XXS regular will fit me better since I ordered it online to try in pink and the grey speckle colors. I actually like the longer length and I'm obsessed with the signature soft fabric since it's cozy and washes well. I'd say this tunic runs true to size with an oversized fit.

Lou &Grey Striped Softlayer Tee, size XS regular

I ordered this striped softlayer tee in the pink stripe in XXS regular based on the online reviews. I then tried on XS regular in stores and I liked the looser relaxed fit of XS regular since the material is thin and clingy. I personally don't like skin tight clothing and I think this top runs true to size if it's intended to have a relaxed fit. The light grey heather isn't see through but the pink stripe will definitely require layering a cami underneath since it looks very sheer. I'm drawn to light pink stripes against white so I hope I'll like it enough to keep it. The pink version was flying off the tables in store while there were more of the grey color left so I was only able to try on XS regular in one color.

LOFT Dotted Two-In-One Sweater, size XS regular

This dotted two-in-one sweater is absolutely adorable. The polka dot blouse hem is the perfect contrast against the white sweater and I love the button details on the side. I find that LOFT sweaters tend to be boxy and short in petites so I tried on XS regular which was a relaxed but flattering fit on me. The faux shirttail hem drapes really well. I'm not sure what possessed me to not order this sweater today but I added it to my wishlist for a future order.

LOFT Melange Open Cardigan, size XXSP
LOFT Melange Open Cardigan, size XXSP (review of size XSP here)

I was able to find size XXSP to try on in this melagne open cardigan but I decided I was over this sweater. See size XSP on me here. This cardigan runs one size larger so size XXSP fits me the best. The sleeves are slightly long but can be folded up and still looks cute. It's good cardigan to wear if you're doing some holiday feasting and need to hide your food baby.

LOFT Shawl Collar Puffer Jacket, size XSP

This shawl collar puffer jacket looks so cute on display so when I saw it in petites tonight I just had to try it on again for size since XS regular was really big. Size XSP hit me at the right length on the hips and the sleeves are even a good length for a winter coat (note that the sleeves look a bit short on me with my arms bent since I don't usually fit petite sleeve lengths and prefer 23" sleeves). The waist placement is in the right place for petites but I felt that the jacket sleeves were too puffy and it made me look thick waisted when worn zipped (with the picture taken straight on instead of angling my body) and unzipped. It's a shame because this jacket is really thick and toasty but I think it will look better on a more slender body types.

LOFT Sheer Stripe Sweater, size LP
LOFT Sheer Stripe Sweater, size LP (review of size M regular here)

Lastly, I tried on this sheer stripe sweater again but this time I took size large petite and the length and drape was much better than M regular (reviewed here). As I noted before this sweater runs 1-2 sizes smaller so I noticed that the larger sizes were actually almost gone while there were plenty of smaller sizes left on the table. See size L regular on Sara here. I thought I took a picture of the front view but all I have is this side profile.

I hope everyone's week is off to a great start! It's been a very busy Q2 at work so I'm counting the days to my next vacation (soon!). I wore this outfit last week and I really love this dangling crystal ribbon necklace. Here is a clearer shot of the necklace below:

I'm coveting this flecked two-in-one sweater. How cute are the stripes and peplum hem?

I've also been living in this starry pajama set which I got in XXS regular. I love the print and texture of this set and missed getting my size in the other two prints. The pants fit me perfectly but the PJ top is very long and roomy if you're petite and considering any of the three pajama sets. I need to roll up the sleeves so that they're out of the way and I plan to sew an extra button on top since the v-neck is very low on me. I could also wear a cami underneath in the interim. See my review here.

Update 12/16 - Get 50% off almost everything at Ann Taylor. Use code MERRY50. Valid online only. I've been coveting this tweed knit textured jacket in winter white but I haven't had a chance to try it on. I tried on the black tweed fringe jacket in my usual size 0P here. I have a smaller chest and 14" shoulders so I thought it ran true to size although other online reviewers thought that it runs small.

Ann Taylor Double Breasted Trench Jacket, size 0P

I wanted this double breasted trench jacket when I first spotted it online since I have a weakness for winter white. Unfortunately after trying it on at my local store over a week ago I immediately crossed it off my wishlist. Size 0P fits true to size but it has a very roomy and boxy/structured fit since it's made of a thicker material. It's an awkward cropped length which doesn't really work with dresses in my opinion (see it on me here, here and here paired with the medallion  flippy shirtdress I was wearing that day). The lapels were also on the larger side but it could be due to my smaller chest and I also didn't care for the large buckles on the sleeves. The size of the buckles overpowered the sleeves while smaller, more delicate buckles would have made for a more classic finishing touch. I have longer arms than other fellow petites since I usually prefer 23-24" sleeves so these sleeves were about 1.5" too short on me hitting right at the top of my wrists (refer to this picture here). The petite sleeves look like the perfect length on Annie (although she has her arms bent) but 1" too long for Jean. Finally I would have preferred if the buttons on the shoulder epaulets were at the end of the shoulders instead of partially hidden under the generous collar.

Ann Taylor Pleated Keyhole Dress, size 0P

I also tried on this pretty pleated keyhole dress which runs about one size larger since size 0P fits more like size 2P. The empire waist of 0P measured 27.5". A strapless bra is required since you can see my nude bra peeking out from the front and back of the dress. The dress has a slightly longer length (34")  hitting right at my knees instead of skimming the top of my knees. It's a gorgeous little black dress for special occasions with the sheer, pleated overlay on top of what would have otherwise been a basic strapless dress.

LOFT Stitchy Mockneck Sweater, size S regular
LOFT Stitchy Mockneck Sweater, size S
LOFT Dangling Crystal Ribbon Necklace
Skagen Asta Slim Barrel Mesh Strap Watch (review here

Get 40% off everything at LOFT with code FIRSTLOOK. Sale ends Sunday 12/13. Valid in stores and online. Shop my picks here:



I fell in love with this stitchy mockneck sweater (see it on me here) and danging crystal ribbon necklace when I saw them paired together in store last night (refer to the picture below). The sweater was 50% off in store last night but it's currently 40% off through Sunday. I also redeemed the coupon (JOY25) I received in the recent mailer for $25 off $50+ for the necklace since they didn't include any cash cards with my recent orders. It's no big deal because those cash cards make it too easy to spend more. When I contacted them in the past customer service would put the cash cards on my account but that meant that I would have to call back and place a phone order in order to redeem them.

LOFT Shawl Collar Puffer Jacket Outfit

I took size S for the sweater for a more relaxed fit but it runs true to size. There is 6% mohair and 4% wool in the sweater so my neckline was a little itchy but it wasn't unbearable. I noticed that the sleeves can stretch out throughout the day (I lean on my elbows a lot against my wrist rest) but I just washed it and they returned to their original state/shape. The necklace can snag on certain material so be careful which sweaters you pair it with especially if it has looser stitching. I don't usually buy statement necklaces but I liked that this neutral piece will pair well with a lot of my sweaters which are grey. The ribbon tie allows you to adjust it to wear with many different necklines.

LOFT Stitchy Mockneck Sweater, size S regular

LOFT Knit Anorak, size XSP
LOFT Knit Anorak, size XSP
LOFT Bold Stripe Pocket Blouse (old review here, similar here)

For my last in store purchase I also got this knit anorak in size XSP. I just had to take advantage of 50% off sweaters last night. I tried on sizes XSP and SP because I wanted to see what they looked like fully zipped but I think this style looks better when worn open and unzipped. Size S was too long and sloppy looking on me but size XSP is a flattering length and drape. I love the cinched in details at the waist. Note that it's a thinner sweater since you can see my striped top through the material. This sweater fits true to size.

LOFT Sheer Stripe Sweater, size M regular
LOFT Sheer Stripe Sweater, size M regular

Next up is this sheer stripe sweater which I thought was really tight and narrow. True to it's name it is sheer so it will require layering with a cami. I decided to grab size M to try on off the tables because the body looked like a slim fit. I was right because size M regular was still too form fitting for my taste, molding to my backside as you can see in the picture on right. The sleeves are too long in the regular missy sizes so I would prefer this sweater in petite sizing. I'll probably try to find petite L or XL to compare the fit in a future visit and hope that it flows away from my body. The color is more ivory in real life than pure white.

LOFT Brushed Open Cardigan, size XXSP

I gravitate towards grey sweaters so of course I tried on this brushed open cardigan that someone abandoned on top of the sales racks. It felt really soft and warm but the slouchy pockets really bothered me. To make matters worse, the pocket lining peeks out and detracts from a more polished look. If only the pockets where more structured. Size XXSP had really long sleeves so I had to fold them once as you can see from the pictures. I'd say this sweater runs one size bigger and it still has a relaxed fit.

LOFT Striped Foil Dot Tee, size XS regular
LOFT Striped Foil Dot Tee, size XS regular

For my final try on I tried on this striped foil dot tee in size XS regular since it was on my wish list although it didn't look like much hanging on the racks. I changed my mind before I eventually went back to grab it to try on. The half sleeves are very flattering and it's not too tight so it skims and flatters. I'd say this tee runs true to size. I regrettably passed since it's a thin tee and I've bought plenty of thin tees that go unworn or barely worn. I'll probably try it on again in a future visit just to make sure I don't regret my decision to leave it behind. Sometimes I look at my old try-ons and wonder why I didn't get something but then my blog review usually jogs my memory.

Review: Skagen Crystal Striped Mesh Bracelet Watch & LOFT Fitting Room Reviews

Skagen Asta Slim Barrel Mesh Strap Watch
Skagen Crystal Striped Mesh Bracelet Watch
LOFT Relaxed V-Neck Sweater, size XS (review here)

 I finally received the Skagen watch that I ordered from Nordstrom Rack on Cyber Monday for $66.97. It's currently sold out and I recall that they had low inventory (4 left) when I ordered it. A very similar one (the mesh band is slightly different) is available for $108 through Nordstrom here. I saw the two tone gold and silver version in stores and I liked the small face (28mm) so I was pretty certain the silver version would be perfect. I love how easy it is to adjust it to your wrist size and it's versatile enough for both dressy and casual outfits. The watch is well made, low profile, light weight and comfortable with just the right amount of sparkle. For a better sense of the sizing you can also see it on me here (my wrist circumference is 6").

Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Open Cardigan, size XXS regular

This Lou & Grey signaturesoft open cardigan is one of my favorite recent purchases. I got size XXS regular after trying on size XS regular (review here) in store. It fits true to size and it has washed well. For a non-petite sizing this cardigan still manages to drape well on me and it isn't so long that it appears sloppy. I thought the ribbed sleeves which is something I normally dislike would be a deal breaker for me but it still works with this style since they're not too tight or constricting.

My other favorite recent purchases include the long rib trim tank which I ordered in whisper white and black in size XXSP. I actually ordered long rib trim tank by accident instead of the clean tunic shell (review of size XXSP here) which I later ordered and returned. The long rib trim tank has a longer length and has a more relaxed fit while the clean tunic shell is about an inch shorter and has smaller more narrow arm holes. Also, the whisper white color of the long rib trim tank is slightly thicker material and therefore less see through than the clean tunic shell. I ordered the Lou & Grey signaturesoft pants in XXS regular after positive online reviews and the regular size inseam was perfect for me. They're very soft, flattering and true to size. Lastly, I also got the starry pajama set in XXS regular and the top was very roomy (requires a shirt or extra button put in up top) and the sleeves are a bit long (needs folding up) but the bottoms were the perfect inseam on me. See it on me here in this snap I saved (username: whatjesswore). I ordered but returned this monochrome plaid ruffle top in XXS regular because the sleeves were too wide and they looked strange with the narrow buttoned cuff at the end of the sleeves.

LOFT Boyfriend Cardigan, size XS regular
LOFT Boyfriend Cardigan, size XS regular

I tried on this boyfriend cardigan in size XS and I liked the relaxed fit but I wish it was available for purchase in a true mustard or marigold color for fall. See it on Sara here.

LOFT Mixed Media Peplum Top, size S regular
LOFT Mixed Media Peplum Top, size S regular

I ordered this mixed media peplum top in XXS regular but I had to return it due to the tight sleeves and narrow bust. I was trying to find size XS to try on in store but my local LOFT only had size S as the smallest size. I liked the length but the collar was too open and loose on me so I'm pretty sure I need it in size XS. There is one online review that mentioned it shrinking when it touched water so I'm hesitant to get it again but it looked so cute on Kate that I had to give it another try.

LOFT Melange Open Cardigan, size XSP

This melagne open cardigan was my favorite try-on because it's very warm without being too thick. It runs very big so definitely size down. Size XXSP would be my preferred size after trying on XSP. The sleeves are extremely long as you can see from the above pictures which isn't a bad thing for the winter since it allows you to keep your hands and wrists warm.

LOFT Hi-Side Split Sweater, size XS regular
LOFT Hi-Side Split Sweater, size XS regular

I finally got a chance to try on this hi-side split sweater as seen on  Megan here. I tried on XS regular but I wasn't a fan of the regular missy fit and I wish they offered this sweater in petites. The material also seemed worn/pilly in my opinion but maybe it was just the color I tried. I didn't find the round neckline to be too high.

LOFT Shawl Collar Puffer Jacket

I saw this shawl collar puffer jacket in the window earlier last week and then I was able to try on XS regular when I stopped by another store. The cut and style is better suited for someone that's average height and taller. I felt like Baymax when I put it on and cinching it did nothing for my figure. It's deceptively puffy even though it didn't look puffy on the hanger.
