FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

This cardigan runs true to size and I love the shawl collar. I tried on size XSP in my previous post and while it runs true to size I went up a size for more room in the sleeves. Update 11/24: I washed this cardigan on cold and air dried it but the sleeves now fit more snug. I tried to steam out the sleeves but I am bummed the sleeves are no longer loose fitting for more easy layering.

I love the look of the large pockets on this cardigan. I found that it runs very big and long so I fit size XXSP even though I am usually size XSP. I noticed that the material (8% mohair and 7% wool) is a bit scratchy when I tried it on over bare arms but it doesn't bother me when I layered it with a long sleeve blouse. I saw the cardigan featured on the mannequin but it had a snagged pocket so I would recommend inspecting the cardigan for any damages or quality issues.

The swiss dot details on the vintage romange blouse and tiny ruffles are my favorite and I found the blouse runs true to size. I took my usual size XSP. I wore it all day yesterday for work (see my outfit of the day here) and I did find the gathered details at the wrists to be a bit scratchy but I don't mind since it's a really cute blouse. It also slightly sheer despite being fully lined. Update 11/10: Note that this top fits a bit narrow in the shoulders so you may want to go up a size if you have broader shoulders.

I love this neutral sweater and it runs true to size. I went with size XS regular for a more relaxed fit. Update 11/24: I washed this sweater on cold and air dried it to prevent shrinking but the sleeves are now snug on my arms. I tried to steam out the sleeves hoping to relax the material but I'm quite bummed the sleeves don't fit the same anymore.

LOFT Modern Patchwork Sweater, size XS regular

Su asked me to try on this patchwork sweater so I was happy to find it in store to try. It's a very cute sweater with the different patches of colors and varying textures. It runs true to size but it does fit a bit boxy and wide. I passed on this sweater since wider sleeves tend to be very uncomfortable to fit into my coat sleeves.

LOFT Ruffle Cuff Utility Blouse, size XS regular

I was eyeing this new utility blouse due to the cute ruffle cuffs and it runs true to size. It has longer sleeves so I would need this in petites for a shorter overall length.

 LOFT Textured Pocket Open Cardigan, size XSP

I love anything grey and I wanted to love this new open cardigan but the material looks like it has tiny pills all over it. I am waiting for other online reviews to see how it wears/washes before getting it. It does look really cute on so I was tempted to get it due to the stackable cardmember discounts. I found that it runs true to size. I may order it in the whisper white color to try since I've been looking for a winter white cardigan.

 LOFT Mixed Rib Blouson Sleeve Sweater, size XS regular
LOFT Mixed Rib Blouson Sleeve Sweater, size XS regular (available in stores first, item no. 442213)

I love this gorgeous mustard sweater as seen on Whiteney. I noted the item number (442213) but it looks like it's new in stores first. It's not sold out online. Once it becomes available it will be assigned a slightly different name and the item's stock images will also be posted. It's very soft and cozy and has more of a relaxed fit with the cutest balloon sleeves that run longer.

 LOFT Crushed Velvet Swing Dress, size 0 regular

One of my followers asked me to try on this pink dress for my Instagram stories. The online store locator showed that my local store had it in petites but I was only able to find 0 regular to try. It has a very wide and swingy fit but I would say that it fits true to size. I probably need this dress in my usual size 00 or 0P. I noticed that the arm holes are cut a bit higher. For reference I'm 5' 2.5" so if you're petite and prefer  a shorter hemline as pictured in their stock image then I would try the dress in petites.

I love this cardigan but when I was checking online yesterday I noticed a lot of negative reviews about pilling while wearing it and after laundering. I wore both the biscuit heather and clay fire colors this week for work but I didn't notice any pilling. I also washed both cardigans last night but they turned out fine. I put one of the cardigans in a delicates bag but both cardigans washed well. We have a gentle high efficiency front-load washer. Update 11/24: The sleeves of this cardigan do become slightly more snug after washing.

LOFT Slim Tie Waist Custom Stretch Pants in Marisa Fit, size 00/24P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I'm so glad I didn't order these pants online (see my previous review here). They run one size bigger so I took size 24/00P when I am normally size 25/0P. I snagged these work pants last week for under $11 when it was $25 off pants in stores and online. I went in store to shop so I was able to combine the following additional offers: the LOFT Cares card offer (extra 25% off $100+) with the FESTIVE40 cardmember offer (extra 40% off your entire purchase). I would recommend not freeing the pockets which are sewn shut as that will change the look of the pants. The bow belt is removable.

LOFT Striped Ottoman Flare Dress, size 2P

I wanted this striped dress but I haven't found size 0P to try (see size 0P on Su by swipping left in her post. I found size 2P to try but it's too roomy through the waist and hips. I'm pretty sure I need size 0P since Su and I are the same size.

Su also recommended this comfy v-neck swing sweater. Size XS regular has a very generous fit. I would recommend going down at least two sizes for the best fit. I'm going to look for this in size XXSP in whisper white.

I loved this swiss dot blouse so much I wore it to work yesterday. If you have any swiss dot top recommendations please share!

LOFT Vintage Romance Blouse, size XSP

I love this blouse paired with my new work pants. As mentioned at the beginning of my post this vintage romance blouse fits true to size but it is slightly sheer. I ended up wearing yet another layering cami underneath even though it is fully lined in the body.

 LOFT Lace Striped Puff Sleeve Tee, size XXS regular

I was curious about this strped top with the lace details so I ordered it to try even though it was only available in regular missy. It runs very long and loose but I decided to keep it against the majority opinion that I should return it. I tried to shrink it for under 15 minutes on medium heat. It now fits me a bit better but the lace detail bunched up a bit since the overall length shrunk. I was able to steam out the lace so that it lays flat against the shirt.

I wanted to love this floral top since I love the color but it fits about one size bigger and it has a longer overall length. I wish it came in petites but the shirred balloon sleeves were a deal breaker for me. I tried to hide the poor fit by throwing a sweater vest over it but alas I will have to return this top.

I realized that I forgot to share this year's vail parka on my blog! I tried on size 00 which is a comfortable fit for layering underneath. For reference I'm 5' 2.5" and 110 pounds. Based on where the sleeves hit me I'd say that they're around 23.5" long. The faux fur lining on the hood is not detachable but it looks a lot better compared to the faux fur they used in past seasons (2015 review here). There were a few questions about the quality of the factory version versus the normal J.Crew version so please check out the comments in this post. The best deal for the pricier J.Crew coat is end of January-February but by then you will have to stalk your color and size online in the early AM pop backs. I snagged the dusty ginger color last year for $173.99 with Vicky's help.

This adorable bell sleeve top was 40% off so I brought it home to think over. I decided to return this top since it's not the best fit on me. I appreciate those of you that took the time to participate in my Instagram poll for your opinion as well. This saved me from a regret purchase. Size 00 regular has a short and boxy fit but I was really hung up on the cute bell sleeves with the tiny scallop details.

 J.Crew Girls Peplum Top in Hearts, size 14

I also tried on this cute peplum top in girl's size 14. Sometimes I fit into girl's sizes but more often than not I find that girl's clothing is cut too boxy to be a flattering fit so I passed on this top. I do love the little bow on one shoulder and the tiny heart print.

Thanks for reading!
