Happy Thursday! I was trying to get these new reviews out yesterday but I didn't realize it took me 4 hours to upload and link everything in detail since I've been holding onto a lot of pictures and video clips. I'm slowly starting to use my LIKEtoKNOW.it links so that when you click on an image you can shop the linked items. Blogging has changed a lot since all of the swipe ups in Instagram from other bloggers can sell out my favorite items before I get a change to review them in detail.

Also if you're ever checking to see if I reviewed something you can google 'whatjesswore' plus the retailer name and the exact item name. If I reviewed the item then I'm often one of the top google search results. I often get DMs asking if I reviewed something so I thought I would put this tip out there. I also take try-on requests but it ultimately depends on if I find the item to try on in my local stores.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

LOFT Floral Embroidered Riviera Shorts

LOFT Floral Embroidered Riviera Shorts, size 00P

I loved these shorts on the mannequin so I tried on size 00P for sizing since LOFT shorts tend to run big. These shorts ran one full size bigger and sizing down to 00P fit me well.

LOFT Floral Ruffle Bomber Jacket

How cute is this floral bomber jacket? I love it but I am nervous I wouldn't be able to wear it with a lot but I really love how my local LOFT store styled it. Sizing looks like it runs true to size.

Lou & Grey Striped Signaturesoft Tee Dress, size XS regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I bought this striped dress during the LOFT cash promotion which just ended. However, now it is currently 50% off since it's part of the must haves. It's also available in solid grey and white here. The dress runs true to size and I took size XS regular for a relaxed fit. I probably could have gone with my usual size XXS regular but then I would have had to asked the store to order it on their iPad.

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

Love clearly loves this shadow paisley print since I noticed that it's offered in many styles from a scarf, two tops, a skirt and a dress. This dress runs big so I fit size XXSP but I didn't like how short it was (mid thigh). I didn't get a chance to try on size XSP to compare but that may have taken care of the length issue just a bit.

LOFT Flowerbed Flutter Swing Dress, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

This flowerbed print is another print that LOFT offers in many styles. I love this print but the dress is unbelievably short in petites and the shirttail hem that curves up on the sides doesn't help. The waist may fit snug if you have wider hips especially when you sit down. I noticed that the top of the dress runs very loose and the arm holes are generous since you can see my bra from the sides. Update 3/31: I tried on size XSP yesterday and the length is a better (still above my knees) but it was much too loose and it ran really wide. It fit more like a loose size SP.

LOFT Lace Flare Dress, size 00P

I love the gorgeous lace on this dress but unfortunately size 00P was still too loose on me and it fit more like size 2P. I reviewed size 0P here.

LOFT Blossomed Tassel Dress, size XSP
Click here and here to view the clip from my try-on

Someone asked me to try on this off the shoulder dress and I love the gorgeous small floral print but I don't have the figure to pull of this dress. It runs a bit looser and it's stretchy so you could size down for a closer fit.

 LOFT Floral Mixed Media Flutter Sleeve Tee, size XSP
LOFT Floral Mixed Media Flutter Sleeve Tee, size XSP (review of size XXSP in white here)

I love the floral sleeves on this tee. It runs true to size for a relaxed fit so I would prefer size XXSP for a closer fit.

Drawstring Neck Tunic Sweater, size XS regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I wanted to try this drawstring top for a while and this top runs true to size for a relaxed fit. Size XS regular was too loose on me so I would need it in my usual size XXS regular. The top is slightly sheer since you can see the outline of my dark denim waistband through the material.

LOFT Modern Floral Embroidered Skinny Crop Jeans in Light Stonewash, size 25/0P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

The floral embroidery on these jeans are really cute in person. Apologies for the poor fitting room lightly which makes this wash look more acidic than it does in real life. The online stock image shows the true color in good lighting. It runs true to size and I fit my usual size 25/0P.

 LOFT Striped Tasseled Tie Cuff Sweater Tunic, size XXS regular
LOFT Striped Tasseled Tie Cuff Sweater Tunic, size XXS regular (review of size XS here)

This tassled top is another item I couldn't wait to get my hands on. I had tried on size XS regular here and ordered my usual size XXS regular for a better fit. I found that it runs true to size. This sweater tunic also available in solid colors here.

LOFT French Bull Dog Patch Tee, size XXS regular

I really wish this French bulldog tee was offered in petite sizing since XXS regular is still really long on me but it looks fine with a half tuck. It runs true to size for a relaxed fit.

Talbots Scallop Edge Open Front Cardigan, size small petite
LOFT Ruffle Lace Shell, size XXS regular (review here)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I saw this cardigan on Jean's blog here and I was curious about it. The color is ivory and the material is thin so it was not as structured as I hoped and it was slightly see through (you can see the outline of my white lace top from this side view). I didn't think it was worth the 30% off sale price so I returned it. Size small petite (PS) was too shapeless on me so I would probably need size petite (PP) for a better fit. This cardigan also comes in black and sky blue but I noticed that size PP is sold out or isn't offered in those colors.

I love this tweed jacket and sizes are popping in an out in case you wanted to keep an eye on it and bookmark it. It fit true to size with room to layer. I would have wanted to try on size XXSP for comparison but I haven't seen that size in stores to try (yet).

Ann Taylor Ruffle Sleeve Split Neck Top, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

This pleated top is another favorite and I noticed that the petite sizes sold out. It runs larger so size XXSP fits like size XSP/XXS regular.

Ann Taylor Winter Floral Ruffle Bib Flutter Top, size XXSP

I also love the gorgeous floral print on this top. I took size XXSP which fits like size XSP.

Ann Taylor Bell Sleeve V-Neck Top, size XXS regular

I ordered this bell sleeve top in size XXS regular after I tried on size XS regular last week. I also ordered it in size XSP which was too boxy and short so I prefer size XXS regular for the longer overall length. The material has a good structure to it and it's stretchy and comfortable and not see through.

Ann Taylor Step Hem All Day Skinny Jeans in Sienna Wash, size 24/00P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love these step hem jeans and I would recommend sizing down since the material is very stretchy. I love the inseam but the knees do bunch a little on me since my thin legs don't always fill out jeans and pants. The measurements for size 24/00P are as follows:

27" waist
23.5" front inseam
25" back inseam

Ann Taylor Ruffle Tweed Jacket, size 0P

I love this ruffle tweed jacket and I found that my usual size 0P fits me comfortably with room to layer whereas size 00P was too narrow in the shoulders and the sleeves were too snug when I bent my arms.

Ann Taylor Floral Vine Shirred Shoulder Tee, size XSP

This pretty yellow top caught my eye in stores. It runs true to size for a relaxed fit. This exact print is also available as a midi length dress.

Ann Taylor Stripe Eyelet Flare Sleeve Top, size XS regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love the idea of the eyelet flounce on the sleeves but I wanted to try on the petite sizing to see if I would like the length better since the regular size XS is a bit longer on me. This top fits true to size and the material is not see through.

Ann Taylor Fringe Sweater Tee, size XS regular

I love this fringe top but I had to try on size XS and S regular for comparison. I am leaning towards size XS regular but size S doesn't look bad either. What do you think? This top is a thicker material and it runs true to size for a relaxed fit.

Su recommemded this cute tee. The flutter sleeves on this tee are really cute and I tried on size XSP and SP for comparison. The top runs true to size but you can size up if you prefer a more relaxed fit. It isn't too sheer in pink but the white color is more sheer.

Ann Taylor Scalloped Short Sleeve Sweater, size SP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

Click here to view size XSP on me. I love the scalloped details on the neckline of this light sweater. It runs true to size but I prefer size SP for a more relaxed fit. The light blue color is not sheer.

Ann Taylor Scallop Trim Shell, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love the scallop trim placket on this shell but it's sadly too sheer for me even with a nude bra underneath. It's also available in other colors here. It runs large so I fit size XXSP but I also fit my usual size XSP for a more relaxed fit.

 Ann Taylor Modern All Day Skinny Jeans in Mariner Wash, size 24P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I love these jeans and I would recommend going down a size since the material is very stretchy. Te petite inseam is on point. Su loved these jeans as well.

Ann Taylor Sailor All Day Skinny Jeans In Evening Sea Wash, size 00P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

The button details on these nautical style skinny jeans are so chic. Unfortunately I did not find them to be flattering on the backside. They also run big in the waist so I was able to fit a size 00P when I am usually size 0P. This style is available in three colors here.

Ann Taylor Crop Pant, size 00P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

These crop jeans run really big in the waist. Size 00P has a 30" waist and they run short with a 24" inseam. They were also too loose on my thin legs so they look very baggy and unflattering on me.

Ann Taylor The Ankle Pant In Eyelet, size 00P
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

See size 2 regular on Lilly. Lilly shared these pants with me and in the petite sizing I found that they run slightly bigger but the rise was really uncomfortable when I sized down although the waist fit me. Su (my fit twin) also fit size 00P and she said that size 0P had a waist gap in the back on her.

Ann Taylor Chelsea Skinny Pants, size 0 regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

Lastly, I was hoping to find these new pants to try on in petites but all they had at my store were the regular sizes. These pants run true to size but the inseam is way too long for petites (see how they bag at the ankles). For reference I'm 5' 2.5". I want to try these in my usual size 0P and I love that these stretchy pants come in a few other colors for spring.

Happy shopping!
