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

 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

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

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.

Thanks for reading!
