Ann Taylor Chambray Trench Coat + Floral Eyelet Pencil Skirt

Hi, I'm Jess.

I live and work in the greater Boston area with my instagram husband who helps me out with my photos. I'm a huge fan of LOFT so if you're also LOFT obsessed then I'm your girl!

I started sharing LOFT fitting room reviews after I received the dreaded 90 day return ban twice back in 2013 (hangs head in shame). At the time, I mainly shopped online and I would return a lot of items that did not fit due to vanity sizing, inconsistent sizing and quality issues. I hope that my fitting room reviews will help you order the right size at a great price. If you're new to my blog refer to my measurements for size reference.

Flash forward to 2018 and LOFT still has not changed their return policy for scanning IDs on returns with a valid receipt in order to deter excessive returns. Note: Based on my recent experience LOFT stores are more likely to scan your ID for returns on merchandise purchased in-store versus returns on merchandise purchased online. You can continue to make purchases but the 90 day return ban applies to in-store returns only so you can still make returns via mail. While I was disappointed and discouraged by the temporary return ban (it was a long 3 months each time) I still genuinely love their clothing. I turned my negative experience into a positive one by sharing my fitting room reviews online. All opinions are my own and I try my best to keep it honest.

I now frequent my local stores more often and I know many of the associates by name. I also had the honor and pleasure of doing a Instagram takeover for LOFT-- hooray for my 24 hours of insta-fame!

Fitting room reviews are a essential part of my online shopping process and documenting my try-ons is as much for my own benefit as well as my loyal followers who also have a difficult time deciding between sizes. Occasionally I share gems from other brands but I do a majority of my shopping at LOFT and Ann Taylor because they fit me best. I enjoy sharing my favorite finds and a good sale. My personal style is simple (less is more) and comfy casual.

I'm striving to be more selective about the things I buy and keep and I periodically cull my closet to keep it manageable. Please check out my Poshmark to shop my closet.

I would love it if you followed me via the social channels below. I'm most active on Instagram and I always share the latest sales via my Instagram stories for avid shoppers.
