Hey guys! Popping in really quickly to review a few items I recently got from LOFT
. It’s particularly pertinent because today LOFT is having a 40% off sale
Blue Tie Waist Dress
First up is this dress. The print has a similar feel to the blue maxi dress I talked about earlier this week, but the silhouette and neckline are different. And the length, obviously. I love this dress! It’s pretty thin and therefore lightweight and comfortable. It’s that soft material that’s super easy to do anything in and can be styled for work with a blazer or sandals and a crossbody for a casual day. Very easy to move around in. However, because it’s thin I’d recommend wearing a slip underneath if you want to smooth out bumps and lumps.
I’m normally size 6 in dresses and I’m wearing this in Medium. All my pictures were fuzzy for some reason (maybe because of the moving baby in the front?) so I couldn’t get a good closeup of the adorable print, but you can see it on the product site.
It also comes in a maroon-ish version HERE.
I really, really wanted to love this skirt because I’ve been looking for a coral skirt for a while. But, I’m a 7/10 which in Benson’s rule book
is not quite enough.
It’s slightly too big in the waist for me. I’m 6/8 on bottom (smaller waist but larger hips) and wearing this in Small, and the waist is still a little loose. It’s also thin and would need a slip underneath. Perhaps a darker color would also be a little more flattering. It comes in black, navy, coral, and berry.
My guess is it would look fantastic on someone with narrower hips because of how it hangs. I like the skirt overall, just not for me. 🙁
Remember last week when I talked about solid colored tops that aren’t cotton tees? (THIS
post.) This coral top is AWESOME! It is 100% polyester (sorry for those who can’t wear that). BUT, while sometimes polyester feels super cheap and is thick and doesn’t move well, this is a thinner, flowy polyester that drapes really nicely! These pictures don’t do it justice. The top is lightweight, and while that’s a plus, you would probably need to wear a cami under it.
There’s a cute slight flutter detail to the sleeves and a slight hi-lo hem.
I’m normally S/M on top and I’m wearing this in S. XS almost fit too, which is only to say I’d size down rather than up if you are unsure.
Also, the price shows a red “sale” number, but the 40% off still applies on top of that at checkout.
Any other LOFT finds people should be aware of?
