    Jess, there is plenty of Ann Taylor and AnnTaylor Loft to go around for everyone. I appreciate your reviews on both!!! You reach more viewers by doing both. I happen to shop more at Ann Taylor than Loft for some reason. I like them both though! Thank you for this post. I was just perusing the 50% off sale and was trying decide what to purchase:).

      Thank you for checking out my reviews and for taking the time to let me know which one you prefer more! I go through phases where I like one more store more than the other depending on what's out for their current collections. If I do happen to like both of their new arrivals then it can be a very bad month for my budget which then goes out the window. I hope you were able to find some items to add to your cart! 🙂

    Thanks for the info about your hair loss. I read your blog all of the time and purchase many of the things you suggest…it saves me time and stress when I can see how something looks on someone my size. I have the same type of hair loss that you have…I have high testosterone and DHEAS…I had a PCOS dx in the past but seem to cycle regularly now. I bought the Invigorating Hair Oil from Mountain Rose herbs recently and it has rosemary, peppermint, jojoba, etc…I have been afraid to use it. Thinking of going on Spironolactone also. My doc suggested birth control, but there were no guarantees my hair loss wouldn't get worse now or later. That deterred me. I've been feeling down about it, and I was comforting to see that someone like me who was my age was going through the same thing.

      Hi Abby, Thank you so much for reading my blog and purchasing my suggestions! I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing hair loss too due to your hormone levels. I've had hyperthyroidism since 2004 and combined with stress my hair has gone through a lot over the years. I haven't heard of that hair oil or Spironolactone before for hair loss. I had read about Rogaine for women from @agelessstyle's post ( but I didn't want to have to use that on my hair indefinitely. I then looked into natural remedies and I liked the option of using natural ingredients to treat hair loss which is how I ended up trying Castor oil after watching quite a few YouTube video reviews. My father in law had male patterned (hereditary) hair loss but my mother in law diligently massaged an egg white mask on his hair daily and now he has a full head of hair with no bald patch. Personally the idea of applying egg whites on my hair sounded really messy but eggs do have a lot of nutrients in it. I'm convinced that massaging your scalp may help with hair growth in addition to whatever else you choose to apply to it. Everything worthwhile takes time to see results so just be patient if you do decide to try something new. It was the nicest feeling when my coworkers commented on my hair recently because they have noticed the changes.

      Yes, I especially like when you mention when the sleeves of a sweater aren't wide enough for layering. Someone in the dressing room at Loft yesterday was complaining about how the sleeves of the sweaters there were too narrow while the body was too wide. Take note, Loft! I even bought one of your rejects yesterday, the L&G tweed hoodie, because I'm a little wider than you and it was below 60 degrees/everyone was dressed in long coats and booties/my throat was scratchy. It was like wearing a hug. I do have that Revlon brush and I tried the other brand of hot brush that Sephora had last Christmas and it didn't work for me on the recommended heat setting. Wonder if I'd like the Drybar version better, even though it looks exactly the same. I agree with you on the Rogaine. Do you have to use castor oil indefinitely as well? If you do, I suppose it is better than Rogaine. That's so interesting about the egg mask and the results your fil had. Did the mask have castor oil in it? I'd put eggs in my hair! Haha. Yes, some people even use one of those rollers with their hair oils, so massage is good. I'm sorry about your health issues and stress, but I'm glad you found something that works for your hair. I didn't even really notice that you had thin hair, though. I've just been focusing on the clothes, I guess!

      I'm glad I'm not the only one that doesn't like snug sleeves. That tweed hoodie is really cute so I'm glad it worked out for you (and feels like a hug). The Drybar version makes my hair go flat but I admittedly probably do not know how to go about using it to its best advantage since I'm not good at doing my hair at all. Once my hair improved I wasn't as strict about putting it in my hair every night but I do put it in when I remember now. It seems to help my hair grow faster and longer so my bad haircut from the beginning of September grew out but I may get another trim to put in some long layers with my preferred stylist. My MIL had used a fresh egg so it wasn't a mask per se but a mask in the sense that she massaged it into my FIL's hair and he left it in his hair and then washed it off. I didn't show my face or hair as much in years past so there's probably not a lot for anyone to go by. 😉 I probably only shared my hair if I got a decent hair cut or in the very rare occasion I curled my hair which I haven't done in a long time. I enjoyed being fairly anonymous (headless and faceless) for years.
