LOFT Leopard Print Pleated Cuff Dress, size XXS regular (review of size XSP here) | Ann Taylor Mila Leather Pumps in camel (true to size, review here) | Round Woven Ottoman (square version here) | Click here and here to view the clips from my try-on
This dress runs true to size but the length is shorter than I prefer which is a shame since I really like this leopard print. The measurements of size XXS regular is as follows: 36″ chest, 38″ waist, 42″ along the bottom hem, 23″ sleeve length, 32″ total length.
My LOFT order from last weekend (minus this top that I was anticipating) and rest of my NSale order arrived in the mail yesterday! Apologies for the poor lighting but I took the below photos at night since we’re heading out of town for a week.
Caslon Chambray Shirt, size XXSP | Ann Taylor Curvy Frayed Hem Performance Stretch Skinny Jeans in ecru, size 00P (review here) | Click here to view the clip from my try-on
I sized down in this shirt per the online sizing recommendation and size XXSP fits like my usual size XSP. The measurements of size XXSP are as follows: 35.5″ chest, 22″ sleeve length, 38″ at the start of the split shirttail hem, 25″ total length in front, 26.5″ total length in back.
The black color of this twist front top finally arrived and it’s noticeably shorter and smaller than the grey color (shown below, review here) even though I got them both in the same size. The material is soft and stretchy so both fit me comfortably. Update 8/14: I wore the black color yesterday and the side that rubbed against my purse pilled. The pilling can be removed with a sweater shaver but I figured it is worth noting.
I usually wear size 25/0P in jeans and I sized up in these jeans per the online recommendation but the measurements of size 26W x 28L are as follows: 23″ waist, 28″ hips, 8.5″ ankle opening and 23″ inseam. Based on these measurements the 26W fits like 23W which would be size 000P in numbered sizing. I really like the dark indigo wash so I reordered these jeans in 30W x 30L since this style runs extremely small and short. I couldn’t even pull them on past my thighs which was laughable. Update 8/4: I received size 30W x 30L and the measurements are as follows: 28″ waist, 33″ hips, 9.5″ ankle opening and 26″ inseam. The waist fits but the pant legs are too loose on me especially through the thighs as seen in this clip.
Halogen Double Breasted Trench Coat with Removable Hood, size XXS regular | Click here to view the clip from my try-on
This trench coat has a lot of extra details that I love as seen in this video clip. It looks nice worn open since the cropped portion is flattering when the double collar drapes naturally as shown below and as seen in this clip. The measurements of size XXS regular are as follows: 36″ chest, 30″ waist, 12″ upper arm circumference, 23.5″ sleeve length and 33.5″ total length. Update 8/4: I came back from vacation and I tried on the trench again but it was snug at the waist (I gained 2.5 pounds and it always goes to my stomach area first) so I decided to return it.
I was able to use this mini travel steamer to get the wrinkles out of the trench with ease. I’m steaming out a thin sweater in this clip but you can see the trench behind the sweatwr which was very wrinkled when it arrived. I didn’t need to use my full sized Jiffy steamer since the mini steamer has really powerful stream of steam. I’m used to the ease of a longer hose with a full size steamer so I had to remember not to tilt the mini steamer too much. If you tilt the mini steamer and the water level is close to the max then the water inside will easily come out similar to when you tilt a teapot.

This zebra print top fits true to size and it’s fully lined so it’s not too sheer. I like the ruffle detail at the collar. The zebra print is also available as a t-shirt, sweater, dress and skirt:
This sweater runs true to size. It doesn’t come in petites so size XXS regular is a looser, oversized fit on me. The pink color isn’t too sheer with a nude bra on. It’s a lightweight sweater that’s perfect for spring and summer. Here is a clip showing both colors in better lighting as spotted in stores on the table.
Lastly this polka dot top is so cute but it runs a little narrow at the hips although I took my usual size. I love it with these frayed hem ecru jeans which I’ve worn a lot. It’s currently on sale for $28 after discounts.
