Happy Friday! This week felt like the weekend would never come and tomorrow I'll be heading down to Philly to see my family. I still have to pack and wrap up a few things before I leave town but I wanted to share the latest offers and reviews for those that are shopping for last minute holiday outfits.

J.Crew Gemma Leopard Print Flats (past season)
Kate Spade Fontana Too Leopard Bow Flats (recent find at T.J. Maxx for only $49.99)
LOFT Embossed Reversible Belt (I took size XS)
I shared these cute $69.99 duck boots in my Instagram stories last weekend and the majority of you preferred the tan/navy color when I asked for your opinions (view poll results). I went with the grey/black color which looks grey and brown to me. They're really waterproof, comfortable, roomy enough to accommodate socks, lined with faux shearling to keep your feet warm, they have a good grip on the soles and I found that they run true to size.

Your collective help has been huge in sharing the best deals with #LOVELOFT fans and avid LOFT shoppers.
Just to clarify, I am more than happy to share the cardmember offers but how you chose to redeem them in stores is something that I shouldn't be involved in. Please message me if you have any questions and thank you for respecting my decision.
FITTING ROOM REVIEWS
I enjoy lining up the hangers neatly for these shots. I also find it helpful to compare the different sleeve lengths and hemlines of the various garments since I try on different sizes in a single try-on (sizes XXS petite - XS regular in this case).
LOFT Cutout Bell Sleeve Blouse, size XXSP
I love this bell sleeve top and I like that it isn't too see through for a white top. It has just the right amount of detail with the cutouts and slight bell sleeves to make it perfect for work or play. I found that it runs one size larger since size XXSP fits like size XSP or XXS regular.
LOFT Plaid Ruffle Blouse, size XSP
I love the plaid pattern and neutral fall colors of this ruffled blouse. I found the my usual size XSP to be a bit too boxy and short for my preference. I want to try this top in size XXS regular to see if that helps with the overall length. If you like this plaid print it's also available as a dress.
Lou & Grey Ruffle Off The Shoulder Sweatshirt, size XS regular
Su shared this new arrival with me and I was happy to find it in stores to try. I love the cute ruffled details and size XS regular fits true to size. I like the oversized fit of size XS regular on me. I bought it to wear casually and/or at home since it's the cutest sweatshirt I've seen with the fun ruffles.
I love the gorgeous fall floral print of this top which is also available as a dress as modeled by the adorable @abbydenora. Note that it fits a bit narrow in the shoulders so you may want to go up a size if you have broader shoulders. I went with my usual size XSP. I recently ordered size XXS regular in the vintage romance blouse (review of size XSP here) as a backup.
One of my followers asked me to try on this velvet dress and I reviewed size 0 regular last week here. I came across the dress in petites so I tried it on for comparison. I found that the arm holes are cut very high so they dig into my armpits in my usual size 0P. The material is soft so it's not too bothersome. I don't love this dress on me but it's definitely a cute holiday dress. Note that the care instructions say dry clean only.
This is how one of my local stores styled the dress with the ribbed patch pocket open cardigan (review here).
I love how @livelovepru styled this mannequin. The knit sweater (review of size XXSP here) and the dark grey bottoms highlight the fun cougar print shell making this pairing the perfect cozy fall outfit.
Lou & Grey Striped Signaturesoft Cowl Top, size XS regular
If you love pink and stripes then you need to try this soft top! Size XS regular was too loose on me and I can't decide if I should try size XXS or XSP. My online True Fit suggests size XXS regular. It fits true to size for a looser fit so you may want to size down for a better fit.
LOFT Slit Mockneck Sweater, size XXSP
I love anything grey with a mockneck so I was temped to get this sweater. It runs one size bigger since size XXSP fits like size XSP or XXS regular. It contains 5% wool but I didn't find it to be too scratchy when I tried it on.
LOFT Sheer Dot Ruffle Blouse, size XSP (new arrival available in stores first)
This black blouse is new to stores first. I linked to it here in case you want to check back on it. It may be available online right after the current sale ends. I didn't love the overall length of size XSP on me so I would want to try it in size XXS regular if given the opportunity. Update 11/16: This blouse is now available for purchase online!
Lou & Grey Rib Trim Bell Sleeve Sweater, size XS regular
This bell sleeve sweater is really cute but I found that the sleeve are too voluminous especially if you need to wear a coat. It fits true to size but it has a wider fit.
I reviewed size XS regular in a previous post and found this sweater to be too long in regular missy. I found that my usual size XSP runs true to size but I didn't love this sweater on me. I prefer the similar relaxed pointelle sweater (review here) which doesn't have the cold shoulder detail.
LOFT Floral Pleated Flounce Dress, size XXSP
I love this floaty floral print dress and size XXSP fits like size XSP. It is fully lined and the slip is attached by a small string on both sides so it will stay in place. I did find the straps of the inner lining/slip to be a bit long so my bra was peeking through. The overall length in XXSP petites is a bit shorter than I'm comfortable with but I believe size XSP may be too loose. I'll have to try on XSP in a future visit to compare the fit and overall length.
I love the subtle texture of this tunic sweater which looked amazing on the associate in store so I had to try it on for size. Unfortunately the overall length is a a bit too long on me (I'm 5' 2.5") and it's was also a bit too body hugging on my behind so I had to pass on this. The sleeves were also too long so I had to cuff them once.
LOFT Tie Cuff Cape Coat, size SP
One of my followers asked me to try on this cape coat for my Instagram stories and I finally came across one in stores since it's an online exclusive. It's a lovely burgundy color and it has a really nice drape to it. I'm trying on size SP here which is one size up from my usual size XSP but it still looks really cute. The one I tried on in store was full of lint which you can't tell from the photos so I wanted to order a new one. However, I know I don't need another jacket but if it pops back in my size and on super sale then I may reconsider. I was also not sure about the online review (in the petite size) about this coat staining other clothes. Has anyone else had this experience?
LOFT Blossom Embroidered 3/4 sleeve signature cotton cardigan, size S regular
This floral embroidered cardigan is my mom's favorite sweater. I got it for her in September and she called me in a panic when she thought she lost it at work only to find it at home. I've been searching for size large for a while now but I haven't come across another one to buy for her as a backup. I tried on size S regular which was a bit loose on me. It fits true to size since my mom took her usual size large regular. Here are my mom's other picks:
This field jacket is currently sold out online but I've been finding this jacket in the sale/clearance section in stores for those looking for a utility jacket on deep discount for next spring/fall. It runs true to size for a relaxed fit. Check out my review of size XSP here.
I spotted these pretty necklaces and necklaces in stores in case anyone is looking for affordable gift ideas while everything is on sale:

Italian Melton Wool Blend Long Coat, size XSP
I stopped by Banana Republic and tried on this gorgeous navy coat but the fit wasn't perfect since the back looks too puffy when cinched. Another follower commented after I shared this coat in my Instagram stories and she said that she returned the coat because it made her behind look bigger and I would have to agree. I do love the cute button detail down the back vent. It's a good weight and size XSP fit true to size for me. For reference I'm 5' 2.5" and 110 pounds with 14" shoulders.
