A Few Jacket Reviews + LOFT Reviews

Happy Monday! I ordered this puffer coat to try since I couldn’t find it in store. I love how extra cozy it is with the faux fur lining on the upper body and inside the hood as seen here which makes it feel warmer than the loose fitting faux shearling lined puffer coat I reviewed here. Size XXS regular is a relaxed fit on me but for $99 this is a great warm coat for Boston winters. Update 12/8: I wore this jacket a few times this past week and the snap button at the bottom of the coat broke off. I was really disappointed so I returned it in the mail and marked the reason as ‘quality’. I was really sad to return this coat since it was really cozy.

This $34.99 teddy jacket is not too bulky but the overall length (21″) is very cropped in the regular size and the sleeves are too short for me. The sleeve length is 23″ but due to the material they look shorter. It comes in white, olive and black but I ordered two colors to try. I like the white color better but I’m not sure when I would reach for a cropped coat now that it’s winter so it’s likely going back. Size XXS regular fit more like how I would expect size XS petite to fit.

Update 12/4: I was able to try on size XS regular in store when I returned size XXS regular and you can see it on me here (video clip here). Size XS was a better, more relaxed fit but a short open jacket isn’t practical for Boston winters so I passed on it. For a longer coat option the J.Crew Teddy Sherpa Topcoat (review here) would be a better option.

I also ordered this adorable dog graphic t-shirt (currently $11.99) and size XXS fit me well.

It’s the last few hours to get FREE shipping + 50% off at LOFT with the code CYBER. Sale ends tonight 12/3 at 3AM ET. Also check out the deals of the day here. Refer to all of my LOFT reviews here. There’s an overlap between 12-3AM ET where Cardmembers get an extra 15% off for the first Tuesday of the month and I’m really hoping it works online for extra savings. Some months there’s a glitch and the discount isn’t automatic so I’ve had to call Customer Service for a price adjustment.

The flecked version of this sweatshirt fits a little longer than the black color I reviewed here. I wish it was offered in petites for a better fit since my usual size XXS regular is too long in the sleeves and overall length for my preference.

I like the lace hem detail on this grey top. After wearing it for a full day the sleeves do pill a bit as seen here so I’ll have to use my sweater shaver on it between wears. My usual size XXS regular is a bit longer but the lace hem detail is adds interest so the extra length doesn’t bother me like it usually would. It’s a similar material to the draped open cardigan from last year (review here)

This cardigan is back in a few new colors this season but I wish it came in petites like last year because size XXS regular is too loose on me.

I like that this festive sweater does not contain any wool. My usual size XSP fit me well.

This no wool plaid coatigan was on my wish list when I first spotted it online since I liked the grey and pink colors. I wish this was offered in petites since the overall length is longer than the website’s description. Size XXS is 35″ long and not 33″. I also feel like it’s missing pockets.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I’m hoping the Loft sale will overlap with the cardnember discount too! I have my eye on the blue velvet hooded puffer jacket, although I really don’t need another jacket especially since it’s rarely cold here! Lol!
