LOFT and Ann Taylor are having a flash sale!

LOFT - Get 50% off select full-price styles and an extra 50% off sale styles. Use code SPREE. Valid online only. Sale ends 10/17 at 3AM ET.

This rosebud ruffle blouse (review here) is now 50% off. My favorite mockneck sweater (review of size XS here and you can also refer to my review of the striped version in size XSP here). These must-have sateen leggings (this year's review here) are also 50% off! These utility pants (review here, last seen here) are now $12.44 after discounts! Shop all my sales picks here:

Ann Taylor - Get 40% off full-price sweaters and tops using the code LAYERUP. Valid in stores and online. Also get up to 75% off all sale styles (no code needed). The flash sale on sale items is valid online only and ends 10/17 at 3AM ET.

I wanted to quickly mention that I laundered this bell sleeve top but I was disappointed to see that the length shrunk a lot! I only air dried it too since I never put my tops in the dryer. I will have to steam out the top to see if that helps to relax the fibers that caused the rayon blend material to shrink. Usually rayon blends don't shrink so I am a bit puzzled.

I received size 0P in these ponte skinny pants and they still fit me snug through the legs so I will exchange them for size 2P to see if that is a better fit.

I wore out my new bow-front flats without breaking them in first they fit very narrow and snug. I haven't asked my husband to help me soften them up yet with his hands but if you're looking for the flats I believe various sizes will eventually be restocked as people return the shoe due to sizing and fit issues.

If you're shopping at LOFT Outlet refer to this mailer to save the coupon to your mobile and use it now through 10/31. I technically already used this one-time coupon for an extra 20% off since they took the physical mailer from me during my last in-store purchase. I shared the following two items:
- 3 Tier Metallic Ball Wrapped Earrings (LOFT Outlet item no. 450159) - $19.99 and currently 40% off
- Grey sleeveless sweater vest (LOFT Outlet petite item no. 448744, regular missy item no. 442622), shown in size XSP - $64.99 and currently 25% off

I came across a lovely burgundy Coach bag which is $149.99 from Saks OFF 5th. They had two burgundy ones at my local store but I cannot find this bag online. It's also available in black. The style is called 'Nolita' and it's a crossbody style.

I picked up this cascading always cardigan at J.Crew Factory tonight in grey and I took size XS. The sleeves run long but they look cute pushed up. Note that it was on a better sale in store for $27 versus $32.50 online with free shipping.

OCTOBER 13, 2017

New day, new sale alerts and coupon codes!

Based on my observations and testing, the free shipping on $50+ workaround has been removed from LOFT's website. I hope they realized how valuable it was to have this option and put it back.

OCTOBER 10, 2017

My favorite new necklace is 40% off ($20.70 for non-cardmembers or under $15 after LOVELOFT30 for cardmembers)!

I purchased these ponte skinny pants in store for 50% off ($44.50) with code HURRYUP. I tried on size 00P which was too skin tight/snug so I ordered my usual size 0P. They're online exclusives so someone returned it in store. They're like a dressier version of leggings with all the details of regular black pants.

I got these gray suede bow pumps in the mail today and they run true to size. I took my usual size 7. This style does show toe cleavage so if you don't like that then you may want to pass on them.

I received a new LOVELOFT cardmember offer in the mail today! Refer to the below picture of the mailer I received.  Get 15% off your entire purchase in stores or online when you use your LOVELOFT Card and code LOVELOFT15. Save this offer to your mobile wallet by texting LOFT15 to 28162. Valid 10/12/17-10/29/17.

Lastly, I went back to LOFT Outlet tonight and I picked up the navy dress (item no. 439099, $89.99) I reviewed in this recent post for 40% off + an extra 20% off using this one-time coupon. Size 0P wasn't too short unlike size 00P.

OCTOBER 9, 2017

New blog post is up with lots of fitting room reviews!

I received these crazy soft sweatpants (they're currently sold out online) in the mail today! Size XSP has a 28" waist and 24" inseam. My bunny slippers are bacvk in stock. I took size M and typically wear size 7.

If you're a LOFT or Ann Taylor card holder text LOVELOFT30 to 28162 to save this offer to your mobile wallet. Thanks again to Irene and Jen for sharing the code as mentioned on this page of my blog. Refer to the front and back of the physical coupon mailer as shared by Jen.

Yesterday I was able to use this offer in store and it stacked on top of the extra 60% off sale markdowns! The associate was doubtful when I asked to use the coupon but she scanned the code and it worked! Please note that it is at the store's discretion to honor these cardmember coupons which for some reason always seem to be a surprise.

LOFT new arrivals that caught my eye. A few items may be older products I missed since LOFT updates the website with new products frequently.

OCTOBER 3, 2017

Skincare purchases as recommended by @aboutliahyoo's YouTube videos:

Note: Tamanu oil (for acne scars and hyperpigmentation) smells like cat urine to me so I will use it more sparingly. I may try rose hip oil instead if I decide that I really can't stand the smell of Tamanu oil or tolerate it.

The navy LOFT Outlet dress I shared is petite item no. 439099 ($89.99 +50% off). The beige shawl collar cardigan is item no. 436120 in regular missy and 440945 in petites ($54.99 + 40% off).

OCTOBER 1, 2017

The black booties are called Michael Kors Brandy booties and they were $99.99 at TJ Maxx.

SEPTEMBER 12, 2017

Here is the link to the belt I mentioned:

I took size XS and I typically take size 25/0P in LOFT denim. You can also refer to my measurements here.

I recently purchased the ReFa S Carat face roller after seeing it on Tina Craig @bagsnob's instagram stories last weekend. I signed up for emails when I purchased it via Dermstore so I got it for 20% off. I was debating between the smaller size and the larger ReFa Carat. I've used it two days so far but haven't seen any visible improvements to report just yet. Update 10/4: I visited my folks recently and I gave my Refa S Carat to my mom since she is able to use it on her 65 year old skin with visible results due to the massaging effect. At this time I'm unsure if I will repurchase another one to use for myself. It's a nice to have but not a must have if you don't have any sagging or wrinkles yet.

I received this A-Bag Plus reversible bag (large size) in grey/ivory gifted from Palla Handbags. Please use my code @WHATJESSWORE on their website for 15% off your purchase if you're interested in their bags. They are 100% leather and ship from the United States. Select styles are also available on Amazon Prime here but note that my discount code only works on their direct website. I will share more about what drew me to working with this new brand in a coming post.

Lastly, here is the link to the Youtube tutorial on how to tie the rose with a silk square scarf. I think it's a cute way to dress up your bag and I was using an old silk scarf from Banana Republic as practice.

Thanks for your support!
