LOFT Shopping Party, New Arrivals & Fitting Room Reviews

 LOFT Outlet Floral Dress, size 0 regular (item no. 404586, retails for $69.99)
LOFT Outlet Floral Dress, size 0 regular (item no. 404586, retails for $69.99)
LOFT Outlet Cardigan, size XSP (item no. 409452, retails for $44.99)
Ann Taylor Charlie Patent Bow Pumps (review here, last seen here, similar fall version here)

I had the pleasure of hosting a fun private shopping party with a group of my coworkers on Tuesday night at my favorite local LOFT store located in the Prudential Center. We enjoyed yummy treats and refreshments while we shopped. We also got a special discount on top of the current in store promotion! I have to say that the key to our fun night out was the great service. The associates did a stellar job of making everyone feel comfortable and settled in. They were incredibly helpful by providing styling and sizing assistance when needed and always with such enthusiasm. It certainly made me wish I worked there because I certainly envy the associate discounts!

The post-event feedback was extremely positive and everyone that attended wanted to do it again. Hopefully I can plan another party in the near future since some ladies weren't able to make it due to vacations or other obligations. If you're interested in holding a private LOFT shopping event please check with your local store to schedule a date and time. I highly recommend it for a fun bonding experience and to refresh your wardrobe at a great price!

 Shopping party at LOFT Prudential Center with my co-workers

I picked out this pretty wire floral necklace at the end of the night for hosting the shopping event and I wore it today. I love the extra dimension of the raised, wire flowers.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

 LOFT Cluster Peplum Shell, size XS regular
LOFT Cluster Peplum Shell, size XS regular

I love this cluster peplum shell and size XS regular fit me perfectly. The petite version looked a bit short so I would recommend the regular sizing for the extra length. I'd say this top runs true to size. You can also refer to this clip I saved from my snapchat (username: whatjesswore) for live fitting room selfie.

 LOFT Speckled Sweater Tank, size XS regular
LOFT Speckled Sweater Tank, size XS regular (similar here)

This speckled sweater tank was selling out quick and we had to get this top off the mannequin. It is a looser fit in size XS regular but given the short length of the top I would again stick with the regular missy size. Refer to this clip for another look at this top on me.

LOFT Ottoman Peplum Sweater, size XS regular
LOFT Ottoman Peplum Sweater, size XS regular (review of size SP here).

I previously reviewed this ottoman peplum sweater in size SP and XS regular here. I love all three color choices but I really liked how slimming the black one looked on me. Refer to this clip for another look at this top on me. 

 LOFT Hydrangea Flutter Dress, size XSP

I loved this hydrangea flutter dress which comes in a lovely shade of marigold but it is unlined so a slip may be required. Size XSP fit me really well and the vneck isn't too low which is perfect.

 LOFT Dot Cascade Shell, size XS regular
LOFT Dot Cascade Shell, size XS regular (previously reviewed here)

This dot cascade shell gets me every time I see it in store so I tried it on again. I believe I would need size XXS regular (currently sold out) for the best fit. I also noticed it's a bit sheer and I could see the outline of my bra even though I was wearing a nude bra.

 LOFT Pintucked Flutter Dress, size XSP
LOFT Pintucked Flutter Dress, size XSP (review of size SP here)

I tried on this pintucked flutter dress in XSP since I had previously tried on size SP here which was too big. This dress runs true to my usual size at LOFT but I didn't think it look that great on me. I do love the flutter sleeves and the front pleats and button details on the front bib.

 LOFT Blossom Sheer Tie Neck Blouse, size XSP
LOFT Cut Off Denim Shorts in white, size 24/00 regular (review here, last seen here)
BCBGeneration Jewel Embellished Flat Sandal (similar here, here and here)  

I tried on this blossom sheer tie neck blouse this past weekend and I really wished it was on sale. The blossom print is even prettier in person. I have this blouse in my shopping cart aka wishlist for now. Size XSP fit me really well and I'd say it runs true to size. The top is slightly sheer so a layering cami is recommended. Refer to this clip for another view of this blouse on me.

 LOFT Lace Mockneck Top, size XSP

I was excited to see this lace mockneck top in store and size XSP fit me really well but I'm debating if I should order XXS regular in order to compare sizes and length. The mockneck isn't too tight around the neck making for a comfortable fit and the lace didn't seem to scratchy the few minutes I had it on. This top is available in petites in store but it looks like it is not yet available online.

 LOFT Floral Mixed Media Floral Top, size SP

I tried on this mixed media floral top in size SP but it was too loose on me so I believe I would need this style in size XSP. Size XS regular (pictured below in the bouquet print) was much too long on me so I would recommend trying the petite size if you find the regular missy size too long in the overall length.

 LOFT Bouquet Mixed Media Flutter Top, size XS regular

 LOFT Tie Waist Cargo Pants, size 00P

I loved these tie waist cargo pants when I saw them on Ali so I was excited to try these on in 00P which fit me perfectly. I carry a measuring tap on me and the waist of size 00P measured around 30" so I would definitely size down for a more fitted look. I personally found the tie waist belt to be a bit bulky so I would ditch it if I end up getting these pants. I don't own any cargo pants so I wasn't sure how much I would reach for them.

 Lou & Grey Brushed Linen Shorts, size XS regular

I was browsing the sales racks when I happened upon these soft brushed linen shorts by Lou & Grey. Size XS regular fit me really well but I'd say these shorts run a bit bigger since they were very loose fitting which I like.

Happy shopping!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Updated Sale Recommendations + Fitting Room Reviews

 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Recommendations on www.whatjesswore.com
My recommended picks:
Hinge Cora Block Heel Sandal - purchased in store (review below)
Skagen 'Tanja' Leather Strap Watch in white/silver, 30mm - on my wishlist (also available in grey/rose gold)
Coach 'Crosby 24 Caryall' Leather Satchel - I love the saddle color and it's similar to my favorite 'Nolita' bag (last seen here)

I finally had the opportunity to check out the Nordstrom anniversary sale in person and I wish I went sooner because I would have saved myself a few returns. I have some of these sold out items on my wishlist bookmarked on my phone in order to check for size/availability periodically throughout the day. Update 7/26: I finally managed to snag the Caslon drapey utility jacket in XSP in grey ebony and I will update with measurements when I receive it. Shop my updated #NSale recommendations here:



 Lush V-Neck Crepe Blouse, size XS
Lush V-Neck Crepe Blouse, size XS (a similar version is back for 2017)
LOFT Cut Off Denim Shorts in distressed dark indigo wash, size 25/0 (review here, similar here)

This Lush v-neck crepe blouse came highly recommended by a few fellow bloggers I follow but the length is really long. Refer to this clip I saved from my snapchat (username: whatjesswore) here. The v-neck is very low cut and you would need a layering cami to be decent. I also found the quality to be suspect since the one I tried on had a lot of loose threads at the seams. I'd say this top does run true to size as long as you're not petite.

 Leith Dolman Dress, size XS

I love olive for the fall so I tried on this Leith dolman dress for size in XS but it was just too loose on me (refer to this clip to see how it fits me). It's short on me hitting a few inches above my knees but it's supposed to be a short/mini dress based on the stock image.The dress is unlined so you would need to be careful to wear seamless undergarments to avoid any visible lines. Size XS more like a size S so you may want to size down while still maintaining a bit of the slouchy look as designed.

 Socialite Cowl Neck Shift Dress, size XS

As mentioned in my previous post, I ordered this Socialite cowl neck shift dress in navy and ivory stripes after seeing the olive color on Jules. I was only able to find the black and ivory stripe to try on above and this plum color to try on below. The striped version has a rib trim texture to it as seen here. You can also refer to this clip to see better see how the dress looks like on me from different angles. The stripe version had slightly smaller arm holes than the solid version below. I love that this dress has pockets. Hopefully I will like the navy and ivory stripe color I ordered when it arrives in the mail later this week.

 Socialite Cowl Neck Shift Dress, size XS

The solid colors are made of a soft fabric and they have slightly more generous arm holes since I could clearly see my bra from the sides. I usually have this problem with regular sizing since I am petite (5' 2 1/2"). If you're of average height then this probably won't be an issue for you. Refer to this clip for another look at how this dress fits me.

 BP. black tote
BP. black tote (could not locate online, refer to the tag here, similar here)

For some reason I couldn't locate this tote online once I got home but I did find a similar bag by Sole Society here that is part of the anniversary sale.

 Vince Camuto Katleen Peep Toe Bootie in prairie dust suede
Vince Camuto Katleen Peep Toe Bootie in prairie dust suede

I ordered these Vince Camuto Katleen peep toe booties the other day but when I tried them on in store I wasn't a fan of the darker color, they looked and felt clunkier on and personally I didn't like the way the cut out vamp on the sides accentuated my ankle bone. I tried on size 6.5 and it was a tad snug and felt like a small 7 so I'd say these should run true to size for most but if you have more narrow feet then you may want to go down half a size. I ordered them in size 7 but since I don't really love them. As of right now, I plan on returning them unless they somehow more flattering styled with jeans. Refer to this clip for another look at these booties on me.

I forgot to take pictures but I was able to try on the highly recommended Vince Camuto Feina booties that online look similar to my favorite Vince Camuto Franell western booties from last year (review here). Unfortunately, I found the boot shaft to be too wide and unflattering around my ankles. Refer to this clip to see what I mean. Perhaps they would look better styled with jeans but against my bare legs I couldn't see myself wearing them with my fall dresses and skirts.

 Hinge Cora Block Heel Sandal (currently sold out online)

Saving the best for last - I tried on these Hinge 'Cora' block heel sandals recommended by Megan @thedarlingbrunette and I am obsessed! They had size 6 on display and I managed to squeezed into them for the above pictures. When I asked for size 7 to try on my local store didn't have them but they were able to locate and ship them to me from another location free of charge. Hopefully you can chat with customer service to locate these since they're currently sold out online. These sandals were my only purchase in-store today. As I'm writing and editing this post I just noticed that size 8 popped back in stock in the wine suede color.

By the way, stay tuned for LOFT fitting room reviews in an upcoming post! I had shared a sneak peek of the blossom sheer tie neck blouse on my snapchat. I have a LOFT shopping party with my coworkers this week and I'm super excited.

Happy shopping!

Ann Taylor Fitting Room Reviews, Sale Alerts + My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

 LOFT Berry Swing Dress
LOFT Berry Swing Dress, size XXS regular (review of size XS regular here, last seen here)
LOFT Cropped Cotton Cardigan, size XSP (old from last year, buy this year's version here)

I wore this berry swing dress the other day and the it's currently sold out but random sizes can pop back in stock. I've also seen a few in the sales racks in case you want to check your local store. In other news, one of my insta friends informed me that her gingham drop waist dress dress shrunk even though she washed and air dried it. I had washed my dress the same way and I finally steamed mine out tonight which worked for the outer lining of my blanca dress but my gingham dress is now shorter than I would prefer. I may also try this baby shampoo or hair conditioner soak.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

I popped into my local store yesterday at Harvard Square to see if they had any new arrivals and here are a few fitting room reviews.

 Ann Taylor Lace Shift Dress, size 0P

This new lace shift dress has a similar, loose fitting style as the lace shift dress I reviewed here in size 0P. The rosebud blush color washes me out so I have my eye on the navy blue color as seen in this clip I saved from my snapchat (username: whatjesswore).

 Ann Taylor Sundrenched Floral Flare Dress

I decided to try on this lovely sundrenched floral flare dress. Size 0P has a generous fit and the v-neck is lower that I prefer so I'd recommend going down a size for this dress.

 Ann Taylor All-Season Stretch One Button Jacket

I came across this all-season stretch one button jacket in the sales rack and it was only available in size 00P. This blazer runs a bit big since size 00P fit me pretty well but I would have loved to try 0P for comparison since it flares out a lot at my hips. It's currently on final sale for about $51 after discounts. I really like the subtle peplum hem on the back of the jacket.

 Ann Taylor Crystal Tassel Pendant

I saw this crystal tassel pendant in person yesterday and it's exactly as pictured online. They paired it with the lilac trapeze dress which I couldn't find in petites to try on.

 Ann Taylor Kelli Patent Bow Pumps
Ann Taylor Kelli Patent Bow Pumps in blush pink (also available in black patent and suede)

I tried on these Kelli patent bow pumps to satisfy my curiosity and I noticed that the blush pink is the same color as the Charlie Patent Bow Pumps (review here, last seen here). They run true to size for me in my usual US size 7 but since the ankle straps are not adjustable they may run a 1/2 a size bigger for others. The ankle straps may also be too loose if you have thin ankles and narrow feet. The lower 2.5" heel height is very comfortable.

I also saw the three new color options for my favorite ruffle sleeve pintuck tee (review here, last seen here) and I'm glad I did because I was able to cross the bird print off of my wishlist. The print looked like it would wash me out and you can see both the bird print and spotted print ruffle blouse in this clip I saved from my snapchat.

Nine West Adalina Pumps - $34.99 at T.J. Maxx
Nine West Adalina Pumps - $34.99 at T.J. Maxx

I picked up these gorgeous Nine West Adalina pumps from T.J. Maxx last week and I love how they look on. They were also only $34.99 which is a great price since they look like expensive designer heels. I also bought them in a grey suede which I returned because I was struggling to figure out what to wear with them.

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

Update 7/24: Please check out my snapchat for some live updates regarding the #NSale. I'll try to work on a updated post tonight of my try-ons in detail.

I finally got around to checking out the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale now that it's open to the public and I ordered a few things from my wishlist this morning. By the time I checked out, the Vince Camuto Feina booties and the Caslon draped utility jacket (also available as a vest that's not on sale) sold out in my size yet again. I only managed to order this Socialite cowl neck shift dress (as seen on Jules), these Vince Camuto Katleen booties in prairie dust suede (I am hoping the toe opening isn't too generous), this Caslon texture wool wrap scarf in grey opal and this Caslon stripe wool wrap scarf in the olive combo.

FYI. My favorite BP fringe infinity scarf (last seen here) is back and available in fall colors. If the color you want is out of stock you check back again later in case it is restocked.

Happy Wednesday! I received this stripe pleated skirt dress (review here) and it's currently on sale for $75 after discounts. As I mentioned in this post I bought this dress online for a better price during the last sale (which didn't require a coupon code unlike the current sale) by using the code GIFT10 for an extra $30 off $60+ since this code is valid on sale and regular-price styles. It's unlined but the skirt portion isn't see through and I love the fact that it has pockets. I wore it all day at work so by the time my husband took these pictures the pleats were a bit wrinkled in the back.

Ann Taylor Birds of Paradise Sleeveless Shirtdress + Flash Sale Alerts

 Ann Taylor Birds of Paradise Sleeveless Shirtdress
Zara Flat Chain Sandals in gold (old from last year, item no. 2660/001, similar here, here and here)

I wanted this birds of paradise shirtdress (as seen on Karen Fukuhara) and I recently snagged it on sale in my size as mentioned in this post. The print is eye catching and this dress is currently sold out online but sizes may pop back in stock. I'd say this dress runs one size bigger since I could probably take size XXSP but size XSP fits me very comfortably. I didn't find the material to be see through even though it's unlined and I love that it also has pockets. This fun print is also available in a tee and pleated shorts.

 LOFT Cutoff Denim Shorts in Distressed Dark Indigo Wash, size 25/0 regular
Skagen Hagen Leather Watch (SKW2356) c/o (also available at Bloomingdales and Overstock.com)

I stopped by my local LOFT after work today and located the cut off denim shorts that I wanted. Luckily size 25/0 regular was left and it fit me really well.  Rather than wasting my time stalking it online for pop back and a better price I decided to get it in store for 40% off during today's sale. There were other items I wanted but I resisted the urge to make any further impulse purchases.

I also tried on this pretty tie neck shirt in size XXS regular as featured on LOFT's instagram. It fits true to size but it's a very billow fit and the sleeves were an awkward length on me so I folded them up twice. I would recommend layering it with a cami since it's very sheer even with a nude bra on. This blouse would also make a cute swimsuit cover up.

 LOFT Tweed Pocket Dress, size 2 regular
LOFT Tweed Pocket Dress, size 2 regular

I loved this tweed pocket dress and the regular missy size is a very work appropriate length hitting just a little bit above my knees. The cute and style are classic and material isn't too thick making it perfect for late summer into fall. The material has a good stretch to it and I love the marled texture as seen here. Size 2 regular fit me really comfortably and I'd say this dress fits true to size which means it fits smaller than the usual LOFT sizing. I'm usually a 00 regular or 0P in LOFT dresses. If you're taller then the banded waist may hit you higher making the fit more like an empire waist style dress.

 LOFT Ottoman Peplum Sweater in whisper white, size XS regular
LOFT Ottoman Peplum Sweater in whisper white, size XS regular

This ottoman peplum sweater is another new arrival that I really liked. I tried on XS regular (above) today and SP yesterday (below) and the fit comparison between the two sizes is very similar except the regular missy size has slightly longer sleeves and it's a touch longer in the overall length. I'd say this top fits true to typical LOFT sizing.

 LOFT Ottoman Peplum Sweater in evening sand, size SP

 LOFT Tiger Pintucked Top, size XS regular
LOFT Tiger Pintucked Top, size XS regular

The tiger print is really adorable (see a close up here) and it's available in this pintucked top above and sweater tank below. Size XS regular fits true to size but I didn't like the large ruffles on the sleeves so I would personally pass on the pintucked top which is also very sheer.

 LOFT Tiger Sweater Tank, size XS regular
LOFT Tiger Sweater Tank, size XS regular

On the other hand, I loved this tiger sweater tank which runs true to size. The material is very light and comfortable but not overly sheer due to the dark print.

 LOFT Stripe Long Scoop Neck Pocket Tee, size XSP

This stripe long scoop neck pocket tee fits true to size and even though the material is thin it's not too sheer. Size XSP fit me well with a body skimming fit. It's currently on final sale for just under $18. There were plenty of these tees in the sale section.

 LOFT Geo Layered Mixed Media Tank, size XS regular

I originally had my eye on the solid layered mixed media tank but they seemed a bit sheer so I decided to try on this geo pattern version instead. Size XS regular fits me pretty well in the overall length and the arm holes are too big. I'd say this top runs true to size.

 LOFT Dandelion Ruffle Shell, size XS regular
LOFT Dandelion Ruffle Shell, size XS regular

I love this dandelion print so I tried on this ruffle shell in size XS regular today and it fits true to size although it does have a slightly boxy/wide fit.

 LOFT Hydrangea Ruffled Top, size SP

Yesterday I tried on the ruffled top in this pretty new hydrangea print in SP since I couldn't find XSP to try. The fit is similar to the ruffle shell above and the wider fit is more pronounced in size SP. I would need this style in either XSP or XXS regular for the best fit/drape.

 LOFT Spotted Flounce Dress, size XS regular
LOFT Spotted Flounce Dress, size XS regular (similar style here, reviewed here)

I spotted this leopard print flounce dress today and I tried on size XS regular for size. It fits similar to the dot flounce dress I reviewed here. There's no waist definition so it was very loose on me and not very flattering. I love the print so might try it on in petites another time for comparison before I completely discount it.

 LOFT Pintucked Flutter Dress, size SP

I wanted this pintucked flutter dress for a while now but I kept culling it from my shopping cart in favor of other items since I really don't need another black dress. I couldn't find XSP to try so I tried on SP today for sizing and the top was too loose so I'm pretty sure size XSP would fit me best. I'd say this dress fits true to size and the pleats and flutter sleeves are very flattering.

 LOFT Eyelet Back Tank, size XS regular
LOFT Eyelet Back Tank, size XS regular

This eyelet back tank is another top I wanted but kept on putting off since I hadn't tried it on in store. The length is a bit long on me in XS regular and the arm holes are borderline generous so I believe I need it in XXS regular or XSP for the best fit. The white is sheer so I tried on the black color. I wasn't completely in love with this top and while it's a nice to have I think I can live without it.

 LOFT Clean Tee, size XS regular
LOFT Clean Tee, size XS regular
LOFT Isla Pants, size 00P

This clean tee is a nice basic if you're looking for a dressier t-shirt option for work. It's also available in this starry print and bloom print. Size XS regular fit me pretty well so I'd say it fits true to size. I was struggling to find a neutral bottom to wear with my other try ons so I tried on the Isla pants in size 00P which was snug across my 33-34" hips so I couldn't zip it up since the rise is a bit lower making for an awkward fit across my hips/waist. The fabric has no stretch. I personally never wear wide leg pants like this because I don't have the thighs to fill them out. Size 00P had a 28" waist.

 Ann Taylor Eyelet Peplum Top, size XS regular
Ann Taylor Eyelet Peplum Top, size XS regular
Zara Flat Chain Sandals in gold (old from last year, item no. 2660/001, similar here, here and here)

I tried on this eyelet peplum top and size XS regular fits a bit loose so I would need my preferred size XXS regular. I'd say this top fits true to size. Despite being unlined the fabric wasn't too see through but a layering cami is definitely recommended given the little laser cut details.

 Ann Taylor Stripe Pleated Skirt Dress, size 00P

I tried on this stripe pleated skirt dress in size 00P and immediately fell in love with it but I did the math and realized that it was just a little over $60 after discounts so I ordered it online and used the code GIFT10 for an extra $30 off of $60+. Even though I paid for shipping as you can see below I still ended up getting this dress for more than the current sale price and I still ended up getting it for 70% off the retail price of $139. The fabric has some stretch to it and I'll probably try to pair this dress with one of my thicker belts instead of the skinny string belt it comes with.

 Ann Taylor Deco Jacquard Ann Cardigan, size XS regular

Lastly, I spotted this pretty deco jacquard Ann Cardigan in the sales racks and size XS regular fit me perfectly. It's actually a thicker cardigan that would be perfect for the fall and winter. I have it on my wishlist to purchase at a later date. Hopefully my size won't sell out any time soon. It's currently on sale for $30 after discounts.

Thanks for reading!
