First is the Slim Denim Skirt in 00P ($14, originally $50):
This was not as slim fitting as I'd hoped despite the name, and sat on my hip as LOFT skirts generally do:
I think normally I would've passed, but at that price I brought it home to reconsider. I don't yet own a denim skirt, and this is a dark enough denim to look more grown-up and yet still be versatile. If I wanted to tuck anything in though, I'd definitely need a belt. More pics of the skirt will follow with various tops.
Next is the Habutai Flutter Sleeve Tee in XXSP ($7, orig $40):
I've actually been eyeing this one for a while now and was waiting for a deal, since I thought the style was interesting but the material is probably not durable and not worth the retail price.
It's definitely too long when untucked, but looks nice when tucked in. It also comes in a magenta color (fitting room pic) that I decided not to get because I already own a top in a similar color.
Next is the Ruffle Polka-Dot Top in XXSP ($10, orig $50):
It's sold out online but can be seen in various outfits. I tend to shy away from tiers and polka-dots in general, but I have to admit that I like how this looks layered:
The armholes are good but the neckline is a tad too low, and I might attempt to DIY take it up at the shoulders.
Next is the Ruffle Shell With Bow in XXSP ($14, orig $50):
I've seen this top before on PetiteLG and Mini Maestra, and thought it was a little too busy with the ruffles and the bow. But again, the price made it worth reconsidering, and it looks a bit better layered under a cardigan:
The armholes fit quite well, and the length is on the long side but would probably look good tucked in (I always forget to tuck things in for pics).
Next is the Short Sleeve Hooded Sweater Coat in XSP ($18, orig $90):
This sweater never caught my eye online, but I did like it in person. I've always had a thing for sweater coats, and this was a camel, almost mustardy, color that's on trend for fall.
Granted, it is quite thick and the material is a bit scratchy (will probably feel better with a long sleeve underneath). They didn't even have size XXSP in stock, so I had to get the XSP, but I think the fit isn't too bad since these aren't meant to be tight-fitting anyway. There's one big button for closure, and I wish it had pockets since I kept wanting to stick my hands into the bottom cable.
Next is the Watercolor Portrait Graphic Tee in XXSP ($6, orig $30):
I thought I was over graphic tees, but this one was so slim fitting that I couldn't resist.
The armholes and sleeves were perfect, and felt very slimming but wasn't too clingy. Plus it looks kinda cute in this outfit. The length is too long, but I can sort of scrunch it up at the bottom.
And last but not least, the Striped Sweater With Corsage in XXSP ($14, orig $60):
I wasn't sure I liked this one too much online either, but ended up getting it in both colors.
Since I'm lacking in the accessories department, I thought the corsage was a nice embellishment. This is my first LOFT sweater and the fit is pretty good and the material feels comfortable. And even though the length is long, I figured it would look cute over leggings/skinnies and would also be nice tucked in with a skirt as well. I originally just wanted the charcoal color, but the pink was so vibrant that I brought it home to mull over as well.
And there you have it! My haul consisting of 1 skirt, 1 tee, 3 blouses, 2 sweaters, and 1 sweater coat for $90! I'm getting so spoiled by these bargain buys that I'm not sure how I'll shop anywhere else again. I actually still have a few other items coming in the mail that I ordered prior to going to the store, including this tweed skirt that isn't available at my local LOFT. I didn't mean to buy so much, but basically wanted to spend all of my savings cards because I won't get a chance to go shopping again before they expire. I may not end up keeping everything... but at these prices, I feel like it would be a waste to return and may end up selling them on AN's Marketplace instead to pass on the bargains to other petites.
