 Lou & Grey Seamed Signaturesoft Tee Dress, size XXS regular

Happy Friday! It's been a long week full of amazing sales. I picked up this soft and comfy swing dress last week after seeing it on these two lovely sisters @yourithacastyle. I took size XXS regular but it fits similar to size XS regular which I reviewed further down in this post.

This lace top continues to be an oldie but goodie (last seen here). Not all lace tops are the same so I caved and got the new lace top (reviewed down below in size XSP). It's simply adorable on Samantha @connecticutchic.

I love the embroidery on this t-shirt. Su @allaboutloft tried it on and she confirmed that it ran big so I sized down when I ordered it online. Size XXSP is still a loose fit on me. It isn't too sheer with a nude bra.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

 Lou & Grey Seamed Signaturesoft Tee Dress, size XS regular

This soft and comfy dress is perfect to transition into fall with cute booties. It fits true to size. Size XS regular hit a few inches above my knees compared to size XXS regular which I ordered in the mail. The fit of both sizes is very similar but I noticed that size XXS is longer in the overall length compared to size XS. For reference I'm 5' 2.5". If you're petite and shorter than me you may want to order this dress in petites.

I also tried on this striped version but it fits a bit longer than the solid color. Even the sleeves are slightly longer if you can tell from my arm in the right photo. I prefer the olive green color so I passed on the striped version.

 LOFT Modern Slit Fresh Cut Skinny Jeans in Vivid Dark Indigo Wash, size 25/0P

I really wanted these jeans as soon as I put them on but sadly they were not on sale. They fit true to size since my usual size 25/0 petite fit me well in the waist. The inseam is petite friendly and they are ankle length on me. I was skeptical about the side slit but they're very flattering without being too wide since I prefer skinny jeans with narrow leg openings.

 LOFT Frayed Cuff Denim Shorts in Mended Mid Indigo Wash, size 24/00 regular

I also wanted these cuffed shorts since they have tasteful distressed details without all the usual holes and rips. Shorts season is coming to an end with the end of summer but I would love to pick up a pair on sale. Size 24/00 regular fit me well but it was slightly loose with a gap in the back of my waist so I may want to try petites for comparison.

I don't need another lace top but when LOFT makes them this cute it's really hard to resist. This just means I have more reason to get rid of an older one from my closet. I love the tiny scallop details along the neckline. I wanted size XXSP but I picked up size XSP for now since the smaller size sold out. The fit is very relaxed and boxy but this is typical for LOFT's fit. I would suggest sizing down if you want a more fitted look.

I wanted this blouse as soon as I spotted it online and I ordered two sizes to try. I love how @cappyandlee styled it (she took size S regular). I ordered size XS petite and XXS regular to compare and I went with size XXS regular for the extra overall length. Please excuse the creases as I hadn't had a chance to steam out the blouses. I was too excited to try them on.

RETURNS

 LOFT Side Button Mixed Media Shell, size XXSP
Old Navy Mid-Rise Built-In-Sculpt Rockstar Jeans for Women, size 2P (way too snug and long so I returned)

I wanted to love this top which is made of a thicker material but the color is bubble gum pink which isn't my favorite shade of pink. I also didn't love the top on me in either size. Size XXSP fits like size XSP while size XSP fits true to size. I noticed that there was an inch difference in the width of both tops. The length runs longer so the petite sizes weren't too short/boxy on me. The button details along the sides are very cute and not see through.

I ordered the violet flounce cold shoulder top in size XXS regular but I returned it since it was 100% rayon which never washes well for me. It's usually trash after one wash if it touches water. To clarify the top wasn't made of the soft stretchy rayon that you can steam out back to it's original length after washing. Click here to view the clip of size XSP from my try-on.

I also received the perforated clutch in black and while it was well made it didn't look as nice/expensive as I had hoped. Refer to the clips I shared on my Instagram stories here and here.

I ordered this cute blouse from Old Navy and decided to order a few other items to try since they were on sale including this utility jacket in size XSP. Size XSP was too short in the sleeves on me and it has a relaxed fit making it perfect for layering. It's not lined so it's a light jacket good for early fall. Click here to view size XSP on me.
