There's a new post with a special guest and my sales picks! Also I updated my #nsale post yet again with the latest items I received.

JULY 17, 2018

Two of my Nordstrom packages finally arrived and I quickly updated this post with the measurements and sizing information. The lighting is poor at night in our hallway so I'll try to share what all the items look like on me another day.

JULY 16, 2018

It's Amazon Prime day and if you're considering a membership you can read more about it here.

JULY 11, 2018

I started using Jamaican black castor oil on July 5th for my hair, eyebrows and eyelashes. It's been a full week so I figured I'd share an update. I tried a few different ways to apply the castor oil but what works well for me is to mix/dilute the oil with aloe vera gel since the oil is very thick on its own. The oil has a roasted smell (the smell will dissipate) to it so mixing it with aloe vera gel helps with the smell. I wish the 8oz glass bottle came a dropper for easier dispensing so I have been using a q-tip for application. I have thin, fine hair so I have only been applying a dime sized amount of the castor oil and a pump of the aloe vera gel. I sometimes mix in lavender EO (if you're pregnant or nursing do not use lavender EO) since I heard it also helps to promote hair growth.

I apply the castor oil and aloe vera gel mixture to my hair, eyebrows and eyelashes at night but I haven't been as diligent during the day. My eyebrows had some tiny, sparse spots and after a week those sparse spots seem to have filled in so I now have less to fill in when I'm getting ready in the mornings (yay for small wins!). Unfortunately, unlike other reviewers' experience my lashes haven't seen any growth or thickness yet. I first tried to apply castor oil by itself to my lashes but it was too thick and it made my eyes water. My eyes tolerate castor oil best when it's mixed with aloe vera gel and applied sparingly with a q-tip. Too generous of an application and my eyes water when I lay down.

I have issues with a receding hairline on the right and left temples and the back of my natural part has become more visible than I would have liked now that I'm in my mid 30's. I've been so self conscious about my visible part that I even fixate on other people's parts. I noticed that a lot of Asian females suffer from thinning hair at their natural parts so it's not just me.

I focus on massaging the castor oil and aloe vera gel into the roots of the problem areas and my receding hairline is already seeing an improvement after one week. The baby hairs at my temples are coming in nice and fluffy. I'm still waiting to see more improvement to the back of my part. I also had a very mild case of dandruff and I have seen no tell-tale white flakes since applying castor oil to my roots. I wash my hair every day which is supposedly not normal/recommended since everyone else seems to talk about their unwashed hair and love for dry shampoo. I only apply castor oil to my hair at night before bed. I tried applying castor oil to my hair in the mornings but the oil causes me to loose what little volume I have in my hair before the end of the day.

JULY 10, 2018

Thanks to Kristie for alerting me to the fact that LOFT's return policy has changed from 45 days to 30 days. This update to their return policy applies for purchases made July 10th and onward. Does anyone remember when LOFT used to have a 60 day return policy?

JULY 8, 2018

I uploaded my first IGTV today @whatjesswore! Please let me know what you think and if you prefer this format or regular Instagram stories videos with the option to swipe up for the product links.

I just made a dedicated page on my blog about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for those looking for my sales picks. I also took away Disqus and I have enabled comments via the native platform for my blog so hopefully it's easier for you to leave comments or questions.

JULY 7, 2018

There's a quick new post on the blog!

JULY 6, 2018

I just got a few packages in the mail. Here are some of my initial thoughts on a some of the items I tried on at home:

- Ann Taylor Leather Envelope Clutch - This is a small simple leather slim envelope clutch that measures 10" in length and 6.5" high. I was surprised to find out that it's made in Switzerland and the Ann Taylor logo is tastefully stamped inside where you can't see it. The 100% cowhide leather is very soft and the stitching looks good too. It's a soft pink color that's the perfect neutral. It has a magnetic closure and a tan khaki colored fabric lining. The edges are decently finished too. Despite the slim profile it comfortably fits my iPhone 8+, key chain, lip stick, card holder and sunglasses in a thin fabric pouch. I ordered it on the first Tuesday of the month when it was an extra 60% off sale so I only paid $34 for it after the extra 15% off cardmember discount.
- LOFT Modern Twist Seam Skinny Jeans in White, size 24/00P - I wish I bought these jeans sooner! See my original review in this post.
- LOFT Frayed Denim Swing Jacket, size XSP - I ordered this jacket since I couldn't resist the sale price of $16.99. I certainly don't need another denim jacket. It fits true to size and it's a lighter medium wash. It's been months since I originally tried it on and the one I received has the same amount of fraying at the hem as shown in the online stock image. See my original review in this post.

I'll try to share a new blog post with the rest of my new items this weekend. I received a couple of dresses and all of my Amazon orders are coming tomorrow.

JULY 4, 2018

Happy 4th! Select denim jackets are on promotion today for $39.50 (use code APRIL441LC to save an extra $25 off $75+). This frayed denim swing jacket is on sale for only $19.99 after discounts. I ordered it yesterday for only $16.99 with the extra 15% off for the first Tuesday of the month cardmember discount. You can find my reviews on the below jackets here, here, here and here.

I reorganized my purchases page and I also updated this page of my blog so that you can easily find my reviews by retailer. It's found under the 'Shop' tag of my blog at the very bottom.

JULY 3, 2018

There's a new blog post up from last night with a dress I'm excited to share!

Thanks to Mel for confirming that today's first Tuesday cardmember discount for an extra 15% (discount automatically applied at checkout) does not stack with the INSIDER442 code for $25 off $100+ on full-price promotional purchases. However, I just found a new stackable code which I posted to my sale alerts page! Shop a few of my sales picks linked over on my Insta Shop.

JULY 1, 2018

Happy Sunday! Please check out my new blog post here.

JUNE 30, 2018

I made some non-LOFT and non-Ann Taylor online purchases today. I'm curious if any of these will work out.

Just a quick update that I had a glitch with getting a return label for Ann Taylor the other day for a mail return via ShopRunner but the following morning I was able to get the return label.

I was also able to stop by the stores yesterday so I'll do a new fitting room review soon! Stay tuned!

JUNE 28, 2018

I tried using lavender essential oil on my mosquito bites as recommended by one of my kind followers yesterday and I'm happy to report that it helps with the itch. My spots were also less red when I woke up this morning. She recommended using the one from doTERRA but I was desperate so the one I found and tried is this one carried at CVS.

Per the latest poll results in my Instagram stories today I will return the white Sam Edelman sandals and keep my eye out for more suitable white sandals.

Also, I may have spoken too soon about the ease of ShopRunner's free return shipping. I'll try to check with another one of my followers before I say anything further that isn't correct.

I plan on heading to LOFT and Ann Taylor after work tomorrow so stay tuned for new fitting room reviews if I see anything worth sharing. I feel like I've been taking a mini break from shopping.

JUNE 27, 2018

This embroidered ruffle sleeve dress and these Sam Edelman Bay cutout slide sandals are coming in the mail today! I hope they both work out although I ordered the dress for $80 on sale when my size popped back online which honestly seems a bit expensive. Jean had featured it on her blog and Instagram and the dress sold out rather quickly before I could order it earlier this season. The sandals were $80 full-price but I bought them with a gift card I got from work. Update: I received the dress in size XXSP tonight at the measurements are as follows:

13" shoulders
7.25" armholes (note: I did not double this measurement)
32" bust (measured pit to pit
33" at the unfitted waist
33" total length

Sadly the arm holes and upper portion of the dress are too narrow for me to take the dress on and off comfortably. I was surprised that there is no zipper on the sides or a keyhole in the back to create more room to ease in and out of the dress.

JUNE 26, 2018

Today is the launch of Ann Taylor Factory online! Similar to LOFT Outlet which launched on June 19th they offer unique to factory styles as well as repeats of past season favorite styles such as the flat version of these cork ankle strap sandals.

JUNE 25, 2018

Happy Monday! There's a new post on the blog with a few quick updates.

If you love LOFT & Ann Taylor I discovered this eBay shop via one of my friends. I have no idea how they can sell these items at a discount but they do have really good deals. I noticed they hardly have items in petite sizes but they usually update their shop with regular missy sizes.

JUNE 21, 2018

Please check out my latest blog post here.

JUNE 20, 2018

I got a few packages yesterday and I'm expecting the rest to arrive by tomorrow so I'll try to share some updates once I steam everything out.

JUNE 19, 2018

It's a big day for LOFT Outlet because you can now shop their newest styles online! I noticed some issues with the site but I'm sure they're working out all of the features that may not be fully functional right now. I'm currently eyeing this cropped 3/4 sleeve denim jacket in white.

JUNE 18, 2018

I just came across this very interesting article regarding "Why You Can't Really Trust Negative Product Reviews." It's a good read but if you're pressed for time just read the last 7 short paragraphs.

I know a lot of you are holding out for a LOFT sale with free shipping and I checked my archives and I believe they will not do this until later this month. So far they've been following last year's sale schedule to a T according to my archives. Meanwhile they have extended and slightly upgraded their latest sale today which I updated here.

JUNE 17, 2018

Happy Sunday! Please check out my two new blog posts here and here. Shop my top favorite sales picks linked to this picture over on my Insta Shop.

JUNE 15, 2018

Yesterday I picked up my items for an upcoming collaboration with Ann Taylor. I shared this straw pom pom clutch in my Instagram stories and it's a good size for some visual impact for those times when my J.Crew rattan clutch is too small. I wish they also offered it in white or even light pink pom poms since I tend to wear more neutral pairings. The Ann Taylor clutch measures 12.75" across width-wise, 7" tall and 2" wide. It has a magnetic closure and an inner zip pocket on the green lining. As a quick and hack I looped together the ends of this gold chain strap in order to use it as a temporary way of converting the clutch into a shoulder bag as seen here. I have the 100cm length.

I wanted the matching fedora but the hat is too loose on my average (medium) sized head. I have a 22" circumference when I measured my head the way I prefer my hats to tilt. I also found a helpful page that helps you figure out what hat size you are although Ann Taylor's hats are one size.

JUNE 13, 2018

Happy hump day! Please check out my new blog post here!

JUNE 12, 2018

I updated my thredUP Closet Clean Out post and I posted a few looks on my Insta Shop.

Last night I received this cami in white and black in size XSP and it fits perfectly. It's the best petite length cami I own with adjustable straps thanks to my fellow petite friend. I had previously ordered size SP in nude and white which was too loose fitting but size XSP hugs perfectly.

JUNE 8, 2018

Update 11:40PM ET - My new blog post is now up!

Happy Friday! I'm working on a new blog post and my LOFT order from earlier in the week is coming in the mail today. Hopefully I'll finish my blog post tonight since it's a long one. I had started working on it last night.

JUNE 8, 2018

Please check out my new blog post here!

I just noticed that thredUP updated the items they took from my bag with pictures. Click here to see all of the items they accepted and listed.

JUNE 5, 2018

The latest cardmember coupon (yes finally!) and $15 cardmember birthday coupon for June can now be found on the sale alerts page.

JUNE 4, 2018

More LOFT new arrivals I noticed online (or maybe I missed a few of them from the other day):

JUNE 2, 2018

I meant to start working on a new blog post today but then I got sleepy. Also everything I wanted to share isn't on sale (yet). Tip: If you check out my flickr and Insta Shop you can usually catch me uploading images (and video clips) in advance of a blog post.

JUNE 1, 2018

I just ordered this round raffia crossbody bag from Zara to try since the Ellen & James one I got completely snagged one of my dresses as mentioned in this post.

MAY 31, 2018

I added a pop up to my site today. I believe it should only appear once a day unless you clear cookies or use a different device. 

Yesterday I got a question about my Zara straw bag and I managed to find the same exact style on Amazon with the black pom poms! I linked to that one and a similar one below:

I uploaded some shorts and pants try-ons to my Instagram stories today! I have a lot of new try-ons to share with the latest new arrivals so keep an eye out for a new blog post this weekend!

Ann Taylor's latest sale doesn't require a code (for once)! Please message me if you would like a stackable code to use on purchases less than $100 other than THANKS9 which is for $50 off $100+ (valid on full-price promotional items). I ordered the vintage floral sheath dress this morning for only $53.40 (about 61% off) plus free shipping on $25+ with Shoprunner.

MAY 30, 2018

I am headed to LOFT after work tonight to see if there are any new arrivals out. I have my LOFT cash with me in case I see anything on my wish list. I also brought along this striped maxi dress (review here) so that I can get the straps shortened by my tailor.

MAY 29, 2018

Update 11:00PM ET - A few more LOFT new arrivals are now online!

I updated my Poshmark closet last night! Please check it out and let me know if you have any questions.

The LOFT sale with FREE shipping has been extended today (update: the sale changed midday). To be honest I have been holding out on shopping online because tomorrow is the start of LOFT cash redemption in stores! My local LOFT stores always let us use the LOFT cash on top of any storewide promotions so it always works out to be better savings. Each cash card is $25 off $50+ (full-price promotional items only). The online code is LOFTCASH which is good tomorrow May 30 - June 13, 2018.

MAY 26, 2018

Please check out my new blog post here since LOFT has upgraded their sale to include FREE shipping!

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).

Shop my latest LOFT sales picks linked to this image.

APRIL 29, 2018

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
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
LOFT Denim Riviera Sailor Shorts, size 24/00 regular

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

LOFT Filigree Chandelier Earrings

LOFT Filigree Pendant Necklace

LOFT Filigree Necklace

APRIL 28, 2018

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:

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.

LOFT Order with FEB419CC + FREE shipping on $50+

Here is what I ordered today using the code FEB419CC + FREE shipping on orders of $50+ (old post so please ignore the sale alert in the post):

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!

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!

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!

If you're local to Boston or visiting the city this weekend I would love to meet you this Sunday, April 15th for sips, snacks and a Friends & Family sale sneak peek -- two days early!

New post on the blog sharing consolidated reviews of some jeans and pants on promotion! 

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.
