LOFT just launched a buy one get a second one 50% off sale on all tops and sweaters (regular priced only) . I closed last night and woke up to find out about the sale in an email. That is how secret they keep upcoming sales from the associates. Also, the LOFT savings card promo is still going on so you can earn $25 LOFT cash for every $50 you spend (this does work with promo items since they aren't considered "on sale").
Good thing is, the tops and sweaters just happen to be what I am loving most with the new rollout! Just thought I'd share a few favorites with you. I know in our store, some of these pieces just came in yesterday and may not be on the floor. Remember you can always ask if they are in the back, I sell from the back all the time.
Tipped Corsage Striped Sweater- I LOVE the way this looks on. I was able to size down one to a small. It was fitted (not too tight) but I am sure my true size (medium) would be okay as well.
Long Sleeve Stripe V-Neck Cardigan- I found this to be pretty TTS. A medium will fit a little looser and a small will be closer to my sides to keep it looking more fitted when unbuttoned.
Multi-tiered Shell-Autumn Spots (again with the names)-I put this one here because it is everywhere on the website. Take this top for what it is, a fun layering piece that will go with a lot of things (I love it with the cardigan above). Personally, I loathe the fabric they chose for this top. It is 100% polyster and it reminds me of J Crew's cotton lawn but even thinner and a little stiff. You really have to size down on this one and the fit is really cute once you do. It is in my hold pile because of the adorableness and versatility but the poor fabric quality is what is holding me back. That is just my opinion. p.s. I am not normally a fabric snob.
V Neck Cardigan-hands down, these are my favorite basic long cardigans. The fit is perfect and the length, for me, is just right. I prefer the fit of these to my J Crew long cardigans and you won't hear me say that about too many things! IRL pics here and here
Tipped belted cardigan-warning, the sleeves are very tight in this cardigan so if you have larger arms it may not work out for you. I love this cardigan, the piping adds a great touch. It does run smaller then most. Mine is a medium. IRL photo here.
Long Sleeve V Neck Sequin Pocket Cardigan- I am always a sucker for a pea green cardigan, I blame Kurt Cobain for looking so good in one and the image was permanently engrained in my teenage brain. I found this cardigan to be more TTS then the others. A medium worked perfectly, I didn't bother trying on the small.
Flutter Trim Blouson Top-this top is so much cuter IRL. Almost every client I have asked to try it on has taken it home. It is really cute with just a simple pair of jeans and it is light and comfortable.
Pleated Fan Front Mosaic Top- I have no idea why they ironed the pleats this way for the web photos...it looks like those mushrooms that grow like like shelves on trees. They look much better (IMO) pressed flat like you should see in the stores. This top looks amazing under a black blazer, itt is such a great graphic print. I would recommend sizing down one. And as a side note for you online shoppers, this is a silk blend but it is primarily cotton and looks that way. Still adorable but again, I just don't want you to be suprised!
Short Sleeve Cardigan-this is a nice lighter layering piece. I love the latte beige if you can still find some. It does have a slight dolman cut so you definitely want to size down one.
3/4 Sleeve Tipped Bow Cardigan- I haven't tried this one on yet but it is my favorite of all the new embellished cardi's. The bow has dark stitching so if you are shopping online make sure to zoom in on it so you aren't suprised when it arrives!
