 Lou & Grey Kimono Cardigan
Lou & Grey Kimono Cardigan, size XS-S
LOFT Drapey Ponte Tee, size S regular (also available in stripes)
Lou & Grey leggings (current version here)
Skagen Crystal Striped Mesh Bracelet Watch (sold out, review here, similar here)
Stuart Weitzman Lander over the knee boots (review here)

I love this Lou & Grey Kimono Cardigan and I'm trying on size XS-S above but it wasn't on sale this time around. I wish it was offered in size XXS since the fit is on the larger end due to the dual sizing. For a better view of the fit you can also refer to this clip I saved from my snapchat (username: whatjesswore). I did buy the drapey ponte tee in size S regular since it was $12 after discounts in store. I couldn't find it in size XS in the sales racks in but luckily size S drapes nicely and I prefer the longer tunic length from sizing up. The ponte material is thicker so it's not the typical thin t-shirt. It also washed well on cold and air dried. Hopefully I'll come across it in white because it would be amazing to own a white shirt that isn't see through for once.

OTHER NOTABLE SALES

J.Crew - Get up to 70% off original prices on final sale styles. Use code GETSHOPPING. Valid in stores and online. Sale ends Sunday 1/17. I've been eyeing this cotton textured-dot sleep set which is now on final sale for $47.99.

J.Crew Factory - Get up to 70% off original prices on clearance styles. Use code EXTRA50. Valid in stores and online. Sale ends Monday 1/18.

Nordstrom - I've been looking for a warmer winter coat (I'm on the fence about keeping the J.Crew Nordic Parka reviewed in this post) and I noticed that they're price matching the North Face sale for 25% off select styles. Size XS runs narrow/snug in the waist so I noticed that I fit size S in most of the styles I tried on but the overall length and sleeves were sometimes too long. My favorite sale style is this metropolis parka in graphite grey heather but my size is currently sold out. I also liked this Dunagiri waterproof down parka with faux fur trim but it's not on sale.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

 Ann Taylor Stripe Perfect Shirt
Ann Taylor Stripe Perfect Shirt in cornflower blue, size 0 regular (similar here)

I was browsing the sales racks and found this stripe perfect shirt in my size for $24 after discounts. Size 0 regular fit me perfectly and I like the longer length for extra coverage in the front and back since I rarely tuck in my shirts. Despite the thin fabric I didn't find it to be see through which was a bonus.

 LOFT Rib Trim Cardigan

I tried on this rib trim cardigan in size XS regular and I love how it drapes. I'd say it fits true to size. LOFT has so many gorgeous cardigans and sometimes I have a hard time keeping them straight but I like this one more than the long open cardigan I tried on in this post. I didn't get it in store because I wanted to check out the color options online. It's currently $22 after discounts.

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

Two-in-one sweaters are awesome and this one looks very chic in all black. Size XS regular was a relaxed fit on me so I'd say it fits true to size. I didn't have to size up like I normally do for most of LOFT's sweaters which tend to be snug, too short and very boxy.

 LOFT Signature 3/4 Sleeve Sweater

I thought this navy signature 3/4 sleeve sweater would be a perfect pairing with my new stripe perfect shirt. Size S is a nice relaxed fit on me but if I were to layer a shirt underneath it comfortably then I would need size M so that the sleeves and bodice are not too snug. I was too lazy to find the next size up to try on but I have them in my shopping cart for a future order in both navy and white. It's a thin sweater so it can be worn year round.

 LOFT Striped Relaxed Tunic
LOFT Striped Relaxed Tunic, size XSP
LOFT Modern Super Skinny Jeans in Vintage Mid Indigo Wash, size 25/0P
Sorel Joan of Arctic Wedge Boot in cafe (runs 1/2 bigger so I went with size 6.5 instead of 7)

I tried on this striped relaxed tunic in size XS regular a previous post and I ordered it in XXS regular but I won't receive my online order until Wednesday. I saw it again today in XSP so I decided to try it on again for size. If size XXS doesn't work out then I might exchange it for size SP since the sleeves are snug on me in XSP. I'd say this sweater fits true to size.

 LOFT Quilted Jacket
LOFT Quilted Jacket, size XS regular

LOFT posted this quilted jacket on their Instagram the other day and I was finally able to find XS regular to try on in store. The regular missy size hit right where my hips start for a cropped length. Fortunately for fellow petites that shop in stores, the sleeves of the regular missy size are on the shorter side because they didn't even reach the end of my wrists. The sleeves are likely 19" sleeves if I had to guess which is way too short for me (I prefer 23" sleeves). The jacket is very boxy and runs about one size bigger so size XS looked ridiculous on me especially since I have a smaller bust. The front overlaps quite a bit on me since I don't fill it out. The sleeves are also very wide so I pushed them up in the above photos.

 LOFT Ribbed Open Cardigan, size SP

This ribbed open cardigan is so soft and size SP fit me perfectly. Size SP fit more in XSP so this cardigan runs about one size smaller. The marled texture of the black color is very on trend for this season. Note that it's a thin cardigan but perfect for layering.

 LOFT Sequin Snowflake Sweater

I spotted this cute sequin snowflake sweater in store and tried it on for size. I gravitate towards solid sweaters but this is a cute seasonal sweater if you can find it in your size. Size SP fit me perfectly but it's a figure hugging/form fitting fit.
