MAY 24, 2018

Have you checked out the latest LOFT new arrivals? I spotted this side tie mixed media sweater tank last night but for some reason it says that it's sold out this morning.

MAY 23, 2018

New fitting room reviews are now up in this post.

MAY 22, 2018

There's a quick new post up! I'm working on a new blog post with lots of try-ons so please stay tuned!

MAY 20, 2018

Please check out my new blog post here.

MAY 18, 2018

Happy Friday! I'm doing a giveaway with two of my blogger friends this weekend. Please read my caption in this post for details on how to enter.

MAY 17, 2018

My dress order arrived tonight and I shared new dress try-ons in my Instashop and Instagram stories.

A new blog post is now up! I'll try to work on a new blog post soon since I'm expecting a decent Memorial Day sale (and hopefully with FREE shipping, fingers crossed).

MAY 14, 2018

Happy Monday! Please check out my sales picks on my sale alerts page. I'll try to do a new blog post soon since I tried on a few items over the weekend that are part of this latest change in sale. In the meantime I updated my Insta Shop with a few try-ons.

MAY 11, 2018

A new blog post is up!

I also noticed a few more new arrivals today:

MAY 9, 2018

Here are some LOFT new arrivals that caught my eye:

And since I couldn't fit it all in one widget:

MAY 8, 2018

I just ordered these sunglasses after seeing them in Sandy's stories.

MAY 7, 2018

I somehow missed the memo but I just noticed four petite bras by The Little Bra Company at Target! I will order this strapless bra to try and this military jacket since it looked so good on my coworker.

I'm happy to report that this lily print dress (review here) washed well on cold and air dried. It didn't shrink on me which has been my past experience with 100% rayon.

MAY 6, 2018

Please check out my new blog post here.

These girl's seersucker bow shorts look so cute I'm really tempted to order them to try in size 12 or 14.

Once again I received the wrong Ann Taylor shorts that I mentioned on May 2nd below. I still need to call customer service to resolve the issue due to them mislabeling the shorts in the petite sizing.

MAY 3, 2018

I will be updating my Insta Shop to include yesterday's try-ons throughout the day. Please refer to the captions for help with sizing.

MAY 2, 2018

Update 10PM ET - I spotted this gorgeous new dress today! It's new in stores first and should be out on the floors next week (May 9th according to Caroline). If your store has unboxed the dress you can ask for it and they may take it out from their backroom for you to purchase. It's item number 474627 and retails for $98.

I'm heading to LOFT after work today to check out the new arrivals. Hopefully I'll find new goodies to share!

Yesterday I received my Ann Taylor package but there was a bit of a mix up. I had reordered these shorts (review here) in size 0P but I received these shorts instead. Upon closer inspection I received the wrong pair because it was mislabeled with the wrong product number (465630 instead of 465633) even on the care tag that's sewn on inside. Hopefully it's just a fluke but I'd love to know if anyone else had the same issue. Customer Service told me to keep the wrong shorts (luckily they fit in my usual size 0P) and they will attempt to re-send me the correct pair I ordered for the trouble.

I recently updated my Instagram stories highlights by retailer for try-ons. I hope this helps you find what you're looking for more easily.

MAY 1, 2018

I was checking if the extra 15% off for cardmembers would come off automatically today at checkout online. From my observations it is only working in conjunction with the code FEB419CC which expires tomorrow May 2nd. However, the extra cardmember discount doesn't seem to be working in conjunction with MORE40. I would advise calling Customer Service to see if they can help you get the extra savings off.

APRIL 30, 2018

Both the LOFT and Ann Taylor sales have been extended (sadly the LOFT sale ended at 12PM ET but there's a new sale)! Also tomorrow is the first Tuesday of the month which means cardholders will save an extra 15% off at checkout (no code needed).

Update 1PM ET - My new bog post is now up! Thanks so much for your patience and support!

As promised here are the video clips from my recent try-ons. I'll do a more detailed blog post soon but I have included as many details as I could squeeze in before I head to bed. Happy shopping!

For reference I'm 5' 2.5" and currently 104.5 pounds. 

Lacy Striped Shirred Flutter Shell, size XXSP
Ann Taylor Gretel Metallic Leather Slides (past season favorites, current season version here)

Today's outfit of the day. The top and cardigan run one size bigger. Size XXSP fit like size XSP. The jeans run true to size but they have a shorter inseam.

LOFT Pocket Open Cardigan, size XXSP
Similar jeans here and here

All white outfit idea.

Ann Taylor Lilac Shirred Shoulder Tee, size XXSP
Ann Taylor Lilac Shirred Shoulder Tee, size XXSP (review here and size XSP review here)

This top runs true to size but I sized down to size XXSP for a closer fit.

LOFT Textural V-Neck Sweater, size XSP

This sweater runs true to size but you could size up for a more relaxed fit. I received a couple requests to try on this sweater. I've seen it reviewed by Courtney (5'4") and Annie (5' who took size XXSP). Su recommended getting it in regular missy size for longer sleeves and she preferred size small for a more relaxed fit.

LOFT Crystal Disc Pendant Layering Necklace Set

More clips of this set on me here and here. I love getting two necklaces for the price of one!

LOFT Lace Bib Blouse, size XXS regular
LOFT Lace Bib Blouse, size XXS regular

Click here to view another clip from my try-on. This top runs true to size but you could size down due to the wider fit. Note the shorter length. If you're taller than me this top will be shorter on you and it only comes in regular missy sizes. It's an online exclusive. You can also check out Sandy's Instagram stories today for her review of size small regular (she's 5'4" and 150 pounds) and she also shared a lot of other LOFT reviews.

LOFT Striped Ruffle Cuff Top, size XXSP
LOFT Striped Ruffle Cuff Top, size XXSP (review here)

This top runs larger and I ended up exchanging size XXS regular for size XXSP after trying it on in red here. It is slightly sheer so a layering cami (see it on me below) is recommended.

Old Navy First-Layer Fitted Cami for Women, size small petite
Similar jeans here and here

This cami has a more relaxed fit and I took size small petite but I should have stuck to my usual size XS petite. I have it in nude and white. Special thanks to Ly for recommending this cami since I don't usually shop at Old Navy!

LOFT Cropped Denim Jacket, size XSP

This medium wash cropped jean jacket is another favorite new purchase and I ordered size XSP and it fits true to size to slightly larger. I have a very small chest so I felt a little overwhelmed by my usual size depending on what I wore under it. I decided to reorder it in XXSP today for a closer fit. Su also tried on size XXSP today so if it fits her then it should definitely fit me since we're close in size but she has a larger chest. The sleeves are very wide in XSP and also in size XXSP according to Su.

Old Navy Luxe Curved-Hem V-Neck Tee for Women, size XS petite
Zara Straw Bag (past season, similar here and here)

This tee has a very relaxed fit in size XS petite. It's not sheer and washes well on cold and air dried. This skirt runs big and size XXSP fits like size XSP. Please check out my previous review here.

LOFT Pocket Open Cardigan, size XXSP
Banana Republic Gingko Leaf Necklace - past season favorite

This sleeveless tee fits similar to the t-shirt above has a very relaxed fit in size XS petite. It's not sheer and washes well on cold and air dried.

Ann Taylor Gingham Ruffle Shell, size XSP
Ann Taylor Gretel Metallic Leather Slides (past season favorites, current season version here)

I LOVE this gingham ruffle shell which runs true to size to slightly smaller although the material has a good stretch to it. I would recommend getting regular missy especially if you prefer a longer length or have a larger bust since it has a shorter overall length. After trying on sizes XSP and XS regular I would prefer my usual size XXS regular for the best fit.

Ann Taylor Gingham Ruffle Shell, size XS regular


This top runs one size bigger. Size XXSP fits like size XSP.

LOFT Eyelet Sweater Tank, size XS regular
LOFT Eyelet Sweater Tank, size XS regular

Courtney reviewed this sweeter tank in her Instagram stories in size XS. She's usually one size up from me and since she's taller (5'4") and has a longer torso the regular missy size always looks better on her. I would need my usual size XXS regular for a better fit. It's not too boxy and the sweater material is very soft. It's a thicker material but I don't mind since I tend to get cold easily. The color is a true white.

LOFT Mosaic Striped Split Neck Blouse, size XS regular

This mosaic striped split neck blouse runs large and very long (tunic length) on me in size XS regular. I wanted to size down and order it in size XXSP but I came home only to find out that it's sold out in size XXSP. I would really appreciate it if anyone my size (5' 2.5" and currently 104.5 pounds) can confirm if my usual size XSP would possibly fit me. Thanks in advance!

LOFT Frayed Denim Wrap Skirt, size 0P

This wrap skirt is really cute and it runs true to size to slightly smaller since it sits higher on my waist in my usual size 0P. I couldn't figure out how to re-tie the sash so that it wouldn't stick out since the denim material is thicker.

Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Open Cardigan, size XS regular

This cardigan runs true to size. Sadly size XS regular was too long and loose on me and I wish this cardigan was offered in petites because the signaturesoft material is so soft.

LOFT Denim Riviera Sailor Shorts, size 24/00 regular

These shorts rune true to size in my usual size 24/00 regular.

LOFT Striped Drop Shoulder Peplum Tee, size XS regular

This cute top has a very generous sizing. It's very wide so you could safely size down for the best fit.

LOFT Striped Boatneck Sweater, size XSP

This sweater runs true to size in my usual size XSP.

LOFT Filigree Pendant Necklace

I know it's free shipping right now at  LOFT with code HOORAY but the effective discount is 46%. Just a friendly FYI that FREE shipping on orders of $50+ (old post so please ignore the sale alert in the post) is working again for those trying to use FEB419CC for $50 off $100+ as mentioned in this post. This latter code is valid on full-price items only. Items from the 'sale/clearance' section do not qualify towards the $100 minimum in order to apply the $50 discount. I noticed that free shipping on $50+ is working again on one of my browsers but I can't get it to appear via private browsing for what it's worth.

I am currently working on uploading the try-on videos from today on this page since an actual detailed blog post can take me about 8 hours to make collages of the front and side view, correct the poor fitting room lighting, upload all of the photos and video clips, link all the items, double check sizing, write descriptions and proofread. :)

These new skinny floral embroidered bi-stretch pants in Marisa Fit are just too cute! They didn't have them in petites for me to try but I love the cute flowers.

Meanwhile shop my top favorite LOFT sale picks here:

How cute are these Lou & Grey new arrivals?

APRIL 26, 2018

Update 9:30PM ET - I just shared a new post with my favorite new arrivals from LOFT! I also updated my sales picks for Ann Taylor on my sale alerts page while everything is 50% off.

There are tons of new arrivals on LOFT today! I'm currently slowly sifting through them and I'll share my favorites items later today.

APRIL 25, 2018

Cardmembers, MORE40 is the new FESTIVE40 (details here)! This code even works on sale/clearance items for an extra 40% off (sale/clearance is an extra 40% off and then another 40% off with code MORE40) since no code is needed. I started looking at more things that I want but probably don't need:

I reviewed the floral mixed media flutter sleeve tee in size XSP here.

I just ordered this popular round bag since it's available for pre-order.

I also ordered these cap toe slingback pumps since I had $65 in DSW rewards.

This stepped hem tank is a closet staple and it's on final sale. Check out my review of XXSP here XXS regular and here.

If you shop at Ann Taylor Factory please check out this page for the latest cardmember offer you don't want to miss.

A new blog post is now up!

APRIL 20, 2018

Happy Friday! I received the in store code for FEB419CC for $50 off $100+ (thanks Kim!). It is 20000002419. Kim is based in Massachusetts like me and her local LOFT has been letting her use this code. This code expires on May 2nd and then the next best code will go back to the usual $25 off $100+ which is the same as the LOFT Insider savings codes. Items in the sale section do not apply towards the $100+ minimum for the extra $50 off. This code also excludes Lou & Grey styles. Note that it is at the store's discretion whether or not they choose to honor this code which has not been widely publicized/marketed.

APRIL 17, 2018

New fitting room reviews are now up in this post!

APRIL 16, 2018

The LOFT pre-sale is live online for cardmembers. Use code PREVIEW for 40% off. You'll see the discount reflected at checkout on the order summary page in case you don't see it right away.

Please check out my new blog post here while everything is 50% off + FREE shipping at Ann Taylor! I noticed that my local store was honoring the online prices even though it says online only. Hopefully your store will honor the online discount as well!

APRIL 15, 2018

Cyber spring is here at Ann Taylor! Get 50% off everything plus FREE shipping. Please check out some of my sales picks on my sale alerts page.

I'll try to update my blog later today after the LOFT Friends & Family pre-sale shopping party at the Prudential Center.

APRIL 13, 2018

I updated my sale alerts page with some jeans/pants that I'm eyeing for Ann Taylor' latest sale.

I was reading about avocado for face masks and if you like to get rid of your tan faster then you may want to try this tip. I usually prefer to stay covered or in the shade during the summer since my skin tans rather easily.

Yesterday I did an updated review of the Hermes Lindy 30 dupe in the taupe and blue colors in my Instagram stories. It is also saved to my highlights in my profile if you're looking for it. I'll do an updated blog post soon!

APRIL 11, 2018

APRIL 8, 2018

New blog post with LOTS of LOFT and Ann Taylor reviews now on the blog!

Are you shopping the Target x Opalhouse collection? I'll share my updated picks in this blog post.

APRIL 7, 2018

Old Navy super cash redemption starts today. I ordered the following with my $40 in ON super cash. Yes, I ordered one pair of girl's jeans in size Large plus since I was curious about the fit. The online reviews said that the pant legs run really slim but the ankle opening might be too big for my preference but I'll find out once I receive them.

APRIL 6, 2018

Ann Cares cards are back! Purchase an Ann Cares card online or in-store to save an extra 20% off for non-cardmembers or an extra 25% off for cardmembers on in-store purchases only. Valid at LOFT, LOFT Outlet Stores, Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Factory Stores and combinable with current in-store offers on full-price promotional purchases of $100+. This is the second year you can purchase the Cares cards online! 90% of the Cares cards' purchase price is donated to BCRF and the promotion ends May 14, 2018. This means that you can also expect to see the LOFT Cares card in a week or two but both the Ann Cares cards and LOFT Cares cards work across all Ann Inc. brands in stores.

There's a new stackable sale that you don't want to miss!

I'm starting to pick up my Pinterest account again and I'll share sizing in the comments of my pins where applicable.

APRIL 5, 2018

Please check out my two new blog posts here and here.

I posted a new look to my Insta Shop with a very serious question about my current favorite black jeans.

APRIL 4, 2018

There are a lot of new arrivals on LOFT's website!

APRIL 3, 2018

Current recommendations (some things I have and some things I want):

I came across a new brand today called Bershka which is a sister site to Zara. I'm curious about their quality. If only they had the same return policy as Zara. This crepe blazer comes in a lot of colors. This pug and cactus print top is adorable. I'm eyeing the following shoes: 1, 2, 3, 4. These bags look cute: 1, 2, 3.

APRIL 2, 2018

The first Tuesday of the month overlaps with the current 50% off + free shipping promotion at LOFT from midnight - 3AM ET tomorrow 4/3! This means that cardmembers can save an extra 15% at checkout on the first Tuesday of the month (discount automatically applied at check out, no code needed). This cardmember discount also overlaps with the current 50% off promotion at Ann Taylor from midnight - 3AM ET. This three hour window is the sweet spot of both current promotions. The effective discount is 57.5% off retail on full-price items.

A new sponsored post with Ann Taylor is now up on the blog here with my sales picks and an spring outfit I'm excited to share with you!

My LOFT sales picks can be found in this post.
