Some LOFT reviews, answers and a winning dress

Okay, so dressing room pics didn't happen this weekend. When I got off work the dressing rooms were full and thruthfully, I was too worn out to wait. Weeknights are tricky since I don't get in to try on until closing but I'll keep trying.....until then, here are some new arrival pictures. And yes, I fell off the wagon a little but now I am back on.

Twisted Neck Exposed Back Zip, Modern Skinny Jeans and Neutral Stone Illusion Necklace
Did they just give up when naming this tank? Regardless I love this tank and I have yet to see it look badly on anyone. It fits TTS and isn't overly loose or boxy. All the colors are beautiful so you really can't go wrong. As far as the jeans go, LOFT has definitely made some improvements. I purchased these one size down because their jeans usually stretch out. These don't so they will be a good motivator for the lbs I need to lose. The necklace, it is a great staple. It has gold and silver in it making it really versatile.

Instore Only (so far) Layered Tee:

I have no idea if this is ever going to be online but these tees are great! The flash made the silk strips look darker but they aren't. I am wearing my true size (M) and I love the fit and length. It comes also comes in an ivory, lavender, aqua, and bright pink. It is very similar to J Crew's chiffon tiered tank so if you missed out on that one, you should check these tees out!
Accessory I LOVE! The Wide Braided Belt is such a beautiful cognac weathered belt. I just love the width and braiding. I especially love that it lies very flat and is not bulky. Our store only got in a small bit and they are selling out quick. I recommend grabbing one, especially with the free shipping promo online!
 
Crystal Bead V-Neck Tee: I was wrong. It also comes in this new petal pink color (very nude with a slight hint of pink). I tried it on and it does fit TTS
 
Riding Boots from the Fall ad: Yeppers, LOFT is experimenting with this new boot as a tester to see how they do. Our store won't be getting them but I am sure others will. As for the rest of the outfit with the boots, you'll see an IRL pic of most of it tomorrow :)
Lastly, my Sheep Meadow dress from Kim's giveaway arrived and I really love it. It will look much better with me made up (and with lipstick) but I had to try it on real quick!

Ok, love love love everything in this post. I cannot believe how much I am loving LOFT's fall rollout. It's gonna cost me a fortune I tell ya! I'm DYING to get those brown boots from the ad--do you have any idea how much they'll be retailing for?? And I heard a rumor that there's suppose to be a Friends and Family promo at LOFT soon...do you know anything you can share with us?? =) As for that cute dress, you look awesome! Super cute! I just got mine altered and plan on wearing it soon. The red shoes look so perfect with it!

I know I say this just about everytime you post an outfit (I can't help it, because it's true!) - but I need to copy that first look from head to toe - I love the mix of colors so much!!!

What's TTS?

I agree with Jan--I really want to copy the first look. The colors of the cardi and top look fabulous paired together. Thanks for putting together modest yet modern outfits.

Debye said...

Anonymous-It is the burnished olive jackie!

Debye, went to Loft today after seeing the fall preview. I bought the assymetrical short sleeved sweater and the ruffly white blouse...since it's buy one get one 1/2 price. It tortured me to know the F&F sale is coming! I like so many things in there today. The jewelry is to die for!

I'm late to this post, but I LOVE the Shabby Apple Dress on you! It's so gorgeous and I'm so glad you're happy with it :-)
