LOFT Fitting Room Reviews & Recent Purchases

 Casual OOTD

Happy Thursday! I wore this outfit on our drive down to visit family last week. I worked remotely last week so it was hard for me to share new fitting room reviews since I sent my online orders to our place Boston. I was afraid the packages wouldn't arrive in time by the time we had to head back home.

I ended up getting this textured shirttail sweater (review here) after helping one of my followers stalk it in her size. At first I didn't love this sweater on me but I decided to keep it since I have a soft spot for white sweaters. After washing this sweater a few times I noticed some pilling when I used my parents' old top load washer. However, the sweater washed well once I got home and used our newer and gentler front load washer. There is a once week difference in the top and bottom photo since I tried to pack light and wear the same outfit more than once.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

Here are some recent try-ons:

Fuzzy Tie Back Sweater, size XXS regular - http://rstyle.me/n/cw3773rrke

I had to try this fuzzy sweater the moment I saw it online. I ordered my usual size XXS regular and I found that it fits true to size. Note that this sweater has a shorter overall length so it doesn't fully cover the front and backside. For reference I'm 5' 2.5" and 107 pounds and it hits me mid hip. The material is 67% nylon and 33% acrylic. You can see the pink dust color in size XSP on Su who is 5'.

I ordered this red sweater on Tuesday when I was able to get an extra 15% off for the first Tuesday cardmember discount. I was also able to combine the $25 off $100+ with INSIDER420 with the current 40% off select styles (no code needed). I love the stitched detail and the bubble hem sleeves. Size XS regular fit me well for a relaxed fit. I liked the longer length which covered my front and backside.

I've wanted to try on this sweater for a while but not sure why it took me so long. I like the mix of thin and thicker stripes but I wasn't sure if I was just buying it on impulse so I left it behind. I originally saw this sweater on Natasha's try-ons (highlighted on her Instagram stories). Natasha has the most gorgeous flatlays and I love her style.

Su showed me this sweater on Meghan and I had to try it on for size. Size XS regular fit me well and I love the tie sleeve detail. I would size up if you prefer a relaxed fit that still looks flattering. This sweater wasn't on sale yesterday when I tried it on or I would have brought it home with me. It's a thin sweater that's perfect for all seasons.

Lou & Grey Striped Tie Signaturesoft Top, size XS regular

I loved how this striped top looked online so I ordered it to try. It runs true to size for a very relaxed fit.

LOFT Peony Fluid Shift Dress, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love this print and I ordered this dress in size XXS regular as seen here but it was too long and very shapeless. The dress has a generous fit so you may want to size down for a more flattering fit. Unfortunately sizing down to XXSP was too short while still shapeless on me. I may try on size XSP to see if that fits any better in a future visit to the store. I ordered this dress after seeing it on Sandy (she tried on size small and you can catch the clip in her Instagram stories highlight reel).

LOFT Peony Pleated Cuff Blouse, size XXS regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I wanted to love this blouse as seen on Christy (I believe she tried on size XS regular and she is 5'4") but I found that the cuffs of size XXS were too snug on the middle of my forearms. This issue may be unique to me since I have slightly longer arms so the cuffs don't hit lower/closer to my wrists. I thought about keep the blouse due to the pretty floral print but I am too lazy to move out and re-sew the button on the cuffs so that they wouldn't be as snug. I may try sizing up to see if that helps but I'm afraid the blouse would be too loose since it has a relaxed but flattering fit.

LOFT Fringe Tweed Pocket Dress, size XXSP
Ann Taylor Charlie Patent Bow Pumps (past season)
Click here and here to view the clips from my try-on

I loved this dress on Akhila who also took size XXSP. I sized down since size XXSP fit like size XSP. This is a thinner tweed dress and it is unlined. I love that it has pockets and since the dress is loose fitting on me I did not have an issue with the pockets bulging. I found this dress to be more flattering than the fringe tweed shift dress (sold out) which was very shapeless on me.

LOFT Bow Back Short Sleeve Swing Dress, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I ordered this dress in size XXS regular as seen here but it was too swingy on the bottom so I also tried on size XXSP in store. Unfortunately I did not love the dress on me in either size. It runs big due to the swingy fit so I would suggest sizing down for a better fit especially if you're petite. The bow tie kept drooping in the back no matter how carefully I tied it which bothered me since my hair doesn't quite cover it. The material is thin but the textured stripes makes the dress less see through.

LOFT Mixed Stripe Bell Sleeve Sweater, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I ordered this sweater in size XXS regular for the longer overall length but the bell sleeves were much too wide for my preference. I also tried on size XXSP in store for comparison and it fit me really well especially in the sleeves but the overall length is very short. This sweater runs big so I would suggest going down one size for the best fit. You can also see this sweater on Jen.

If you love this print it's also available as a dress, skirt, scarf (ordered and arriving soon) and umbrella. The top runs true to size and it's fully lined so it's not see through. The curved shirttail hem comes up higher in petites so I would prefer the regular missy size for the longer overall length. I ordered my usual size XXS regular after trying on size XS regular. The henley buttons make the neckline modest on my small chest (I take size 32A in my favorite petite bra). If you have a larger bust you may have an issue with the slit gaping at the bust as noted by one online reviewer.

LOFT Floral Textured Henley Dress, size XXSP

This pretty floral dress is another new arrival that I was anxious to get. I reordered it yesterday in case the print on the second dress looks better. Each dress will look slightly different based on where they cut and sew the textured floral fabric. I took size XXSP in the dress which fits like size XSP. This dress fits similar to the poppy bloom tie neck bell sleeve dress that I reviewed here. I prefer the henley buttons for a more modest neckline. The elastic waist fits me a bit awkward but hopefully I'll slim down a little in the warmer weather so that I have slightly more waist definition similar to the online stock image. I feel like I mentally say this a lot but it never happens since I'm super lazy. lol

I previously reviewed this sweater in size XS regular here which was much too long on me. The petite sizing fits better in the overall length but the sleeves are a bit short since I have longer arms than most petites. There are a few online reviews about the "rough" material and I would say it feels like how a towel would feel if you air dried it.

RECENT PURCHASES

I also received this Lou & Grey heart patch striped linen tee tonight so I'll try to provide an updated photo in better lighting soon. I ordered size XXS regular and it fits true to size for a relaxed fit. The material is thin making it perfect for the spring and summer. However, I'm uncertain how well the linen material will wash so I'm on the fence about keeping it. I'm still waiting for one more LOFT order to arrive from my orders last week.

I also ordered the following items to try:
