FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

 LOFT Tipped Tie Cuff Sweater, size S regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I wanted to try on this sweater after seeing it on Lilly. She is 5'6" and took size XS regular which is actually the size I wanted for a loose but comfortable fit. Size S is much too loose and oversized on me. Unfortunately by the time I got home the other night size XS regular was sold out online so I couldn't order it. This morning size SP popped back in stock so I ordered it to try since it's the petite equivalent of size XS regular.

 LOFT Blouson Cable Sweater, size XSP

This cable sweater is really pretty but the wool and mohair can make it slightly itchy for some with more sensitive skin. I found that my usual size XSP has a looser fit through the body. I would probably prefer my other size XXS regular for a slightly longer overall length.

 Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Drawstring Cowl Top, size XS regular

I love the cowl neck on this top and I had originally ordered size XXS regular which was a bit shorter so I ended up returning it after trying on size XS regular. The top has a shorter overall length hitting me a little past mid-hip but the side slits are not too high on me. When I raise my arms the slits tend to stay more closed so I don't feel like I am exposing my stomach. If you are taller than me (I'm 5' 2.5") then you may be wary of this top unless you wear a base layer underneath.

I had originally passed on this tunic sweater due to the longer length but I keep on seeing it on the bloggers I follow and it looks so cute. See size XXSP on Annie and size XSP on Su. I tried on size XSP here again and size XS regular for comparison (see above) and I accidentally put back the wrong size thereby purchasing and taking home the wrong size. Hopefully my store will have the size I meant to purchase when I go to exchange it.

 LOFT Houndstooth Blanket Scarf

Ly recommended this cozy blanket scarf and I tried draping it for fun. It's very oversized and great for keeping your neck extra cozy especially if you live in a windy city or spend a lot of time outside in the cold during the winter. As a side note, my hair is currently an awkward shoulder length so I'm wary of my hair flipping out in various directions if I crush it by wearing a heavy scarf.

 LOFT Ruffle Cuff Two In One Sweater, size XS regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I found this blogger favorite sweater in the sales racks and decided to try it on out of curiosity. It looks really cute on but I was worried that the ruffle cuffs on the sleeves would get in the way of everything from eating to washing my hands easily. The bottom layer is not see through which is a nice touch. It is a really cute, thin sweater if you're lucky enough to find it in the sales racks as it is currently sold out online. Size XS fit true to size and I liked the longer length of the shirttail hem which covered my front and backside.

 LOFT Outlet Mockneck Swing Sweater, size XSP (item no. 450605) - $44.99

This mockneck swing sweater is one of my favorites from fall/winter 2016 (reviewed here). Erika kindly informed me that LOFT Outlet carries a similar sweater and it turns out they're the same style! Size XSP fits similar to last year's size XS regular. It has a swingy fit that I love and it's really cozy. They also carry this past season favorite in a navy color. Regular LOFT carries this foldover pocket cardigan (review here) which is I noticed is made of exactly the same material (73% acrylic, 24% polyester, 3% spandex) and they're both manufactured in Vietnam.

How adorable is this sweater? The details are just precious. I normally don't wear animal print sweaters but I really wanted this due to the cute otters holding hands. Unfortunately the size I wanted was sold out but I tried on size MP which was too long and loose on me. I'd say this sweater runs true to size but it looks cute worn oversized too. I forgot to note down the style number but it is a new arrival at LOFT Outlet.

 OOTD

I wore these crystal floral leaf statement earrings for a full day and my ear lobes were sore. I had to take them off to give my ears a break. I also have the matching necklace (last seen here). 

Banana Republic Bracelets

I ordered these pretty bracelets on Cyber Monday from Banana Republic and they arrived today!  After seeing the delicate one in stores a few weeks ago I couldn't get it off my mind. The pearl cuff fits me better than the similar one I have from Ann Taylor since the opening is smaller so it stays on better. For reference, I have a 6" wrist. The two bracelets have a 1/2" extender. The pearl cuff measures 2.75" across and it has a 1" opening.

LOFT CASH REDEMPTION 

 LOFT Cash Fall 2017

Some of you privately messaged me about missing LOFT cash cards from your recent online orders. I suggest calling customer service for assistance but I received mixed feedback from those of you that tried and it depended on which rep you spoke with. 

Customer service can mail your missing physical LOFT cash cards after checking your recent online orders. Alternatively, customer service can honor up to nine LOFT cash cards per phone order. LOFT cash only works on full-price merchandise (specifically items with prices that end with either .00 or .50). Special thanks to Jazmin's persistence for clarifying the above points with countless reps over chat and phone!

Since you are limited to redeeming only one LOFT cash per online transaction I called customer service for assistance with redeeming multiple LOFT cash cards. The rep I spoke with last night explained that they cannot apply two promotion codes (yesterday's cardmember sale on new arrivals required code VIP40)

I called customer service again this morning when I noticed that it was 40% off tops and sweaters today and 'no code needed'. First, I prepped my shopping cart before I called customer service to make sure I was getting the most out of the number of cash cards I wanted to redeem. $200+ (after 40% off) meant that I could redeem four LOFT cash cards since each cash card is $25 off $50+. I also applied the LOFTCASH promo code in advance which is an online test that confirms that the LOFT cash code works on the full-price merchandise. The rep that helped me was able to see the items in my shopping cart when I provided my email address on file. As seen in the order confirmation email below the rep applied four LOFT cash for an extra $100 off! Again, this is on top of the tops and sweaters that are currently 40% off and 'no code needed' so I saved about 70% off retail!

 LOFT Cash card redemption via phone order

With regards to in store redemption, multiple LOFT cash cards can be applied towards the subtotal after the storewide discount (refer to this helpful Slickdeals.net article written by Lesley). Surprisingly, many of you shared (via an Instagram story poll) that your stores refused to honor LOFT cash on full-price promotional items. LOFT will explicitly state when an offer is 'not combinable with other offers' but this statement is not present in the fine print on the back of the LOFT cash cards. Apparently it is at the store's discretion how they chose to honor the LOFT cash cards. After hearing this feedback I wanted to provide a way to share participating stores in the comments of this post on Instagram. My local LOFT store at the Prudential Center always honors multiple LOFT cash on top of the storewide discounts (e.g 40% off everything) and daily promotions (e.g. select full-price pants now $39.50). Refer to my recent in-store purchase receipt here.
