LOFT‘s Flash Sale ends tonight! Get 40% off everything plus get free shipping on all orders. Use code FLASH. Sale ends 6/27 at 3AM ET. Valid online only. It’s so very tempting to order everything on my wishlist but I tried to control myself since I already have way too much stuff. Shop my sales picks here:
Banana Republic Gingko Leaf Necklace (old)
Zara Convertible Bucket Bag in yellow (item ref no. 4788/204)
I stopped by the store this past weekend so here are some additional fitting room reviews. And I totally caved and got the Zara bag in yellow while I was browsing the Zara mess of a sale.
LOFT Skinny Crop Jeans in White, size 25/0P
Zara Gem Encrusted Slides (old from 2016, item no. 7506/101)
I had to have this floral top the moment I tried it on. It took all of my willpower not to take home size SP which was a little wide on me although it has such a flattering drape you can’t tell from the pictures. The telling sign that SP was too roomy for me was the fact that I could see my bra from the sides when I moved around. I love that the v-neck isn’t too low on this top. I ordered my usual size XXS regular which should be the best fit for me. I ordered it on Saturday while it was full-price (pre-flash sale) so I was able to get the price adjustment via customer service for the difference.
Also, if you want a pair of white jeans that isn’t too narrow around your ankles then you may like these crop jeans. I tried on size 25/0P and they fit true to size usual size for LOFT bottoms. They look great cuffed and uncuffed if you prefer the extra length.
I also ordered this denim jacket in XXSP after trying on XSP above since I’ve been looking for light wash and cropped denim jacket for a while. It fits the same as the darker wash I reviewed here. XSP was a comfortable fit on me with room to layer but I am going to try sizing down so that I have a more fitted jacket that looks great over dresses and sleeveless tops. Refer to this clip for another view of the fit on me.
LOFT Fiesta Cold Shoulder Top, size XSP
Su shared this adorable top with me when it first hit the website as one of her picks. I finally found it in size petites to try. My usual size XSP fit me well and the length wasn’t too short but I found the top to be a bit too puffy for my taste. It’s a really fun top to own for the summer so I’m sure we’ll be seeing it all over the Instagram and out and about.
LOFT Flutter Duet Dress, size XSP
This year LOFT brought back the popular duet dress (2015 version linked, 2016 version here) with a twist! The fluttery sleeves are so cute but the drapey material on top makes my small chest look saggy. The dress fits true to size in my usual size XSP but you can probably also size down due to stretchy waist band and flowy top. The skirt portion is unlined so a skirt slip may be recommended if you don’t want to feel too exposed while standing outside in the bright summertime sun.
LOFT Tropic Cold Shoulder Swing Dress, size XS regular
I welcome try-on requests and @devfoxkulik had asked about this floral dress so I tried it on for fun. Size XS regular fit me loose but I found that it fits true to LOFT vanity sizing*. I would prefer this dress in my usual size XXS regular (the online True Fit profile recommended XXS regular for me) or XSP for the best fit. The overall length is good hitting just above my knees. Refer to this clip for another view of the fit on me and the rayon material drapes well. Since it’s 100% rayon I would recommend dry cleaning it as 100% rayon shrinks and doesn’t return to it’s original size from my experience. One of my readers loves rayon and she recommends washing rayon with mild soap or Woolite. LOFT really went all out with this tropic print since it’s also available as a scarf, top, skirt and pants.
*Note that all the online reviews say the dress runs really big so it should be safe to size down due to the swingy skirt on the bottom.
LOFT Petaled Sailor Top, size XS regular
I wanted to love this petaled version of the sailor top due to the tiny blossom print but I thought it was just okay once I tried it on. I probably should have tried it with white pants so that the print would pop. It comes with cute button details at the shoulders and it’s also offered in solid colors. XS regular was a bit long on me so I would probably prefer this top in XSP. It fits similar to their polyester clean tees minus the shirttail hem detail.
LOFT Cold Shoulder Floral Eyelet Dress (item no. 446926)
If you love the floral eyelet off the shoulder top I reviewed here then you’re probably drooling over this cold shoulder dress. It’s available in stores first but hopefully we’ll be able to purchase it online soon. I really hope it is offered in petites.
I was walking past the store window when I spotted this cute striped off the shoulder top. When I looked it up online it has the sweetest bow detail in back!
Uniqlo Girl’s Lace Sleeveless Dress, size 13
Lastly, this dress is not related to LOFT but I found the cutest white dress at Uniqlo from the girl’s section for $14.90. I received a few questions about it when I shared it in my Instagram stories on Saturday. Girls size 13 fit like size 0P/2P since it’s slightly loose on me in the waist for a comfortable fit. The dress is 100% cotton and fully lined and it comes with pockets! For reference I’m 5′ 2 1/4″, around 110 pounds, I take 32A in petite bras and I have a 27-28″ waist and 33-34″ hips. Refer to this clip for another view of the fit on me. I also saw it in navy which had a lot left but the white color was almost gone.
