Loft’s offer to save 30% off the entire store, plus an an additional 10% off ends tonite. It’s a one day promo. The online code is FBSTYLEB. It’s not 40%, as some people have stated; it’s 30% and then 10% off of the net total. Small difference in change, but in case some are thinking — where’s mah fohty! — it’s not forty. At any rate, I’m hot-to-trot to share these photos with you. And I don’t know why I’m speeding because Loft will probably have a promo to trump this one in a day or two. (slaps knee) (hard!)
I’M PSYCHIC! – I just read on Loft’s Facebook Fan Page that this offer will be extended thru tomorrow, Sunday (12/5).
Loft had these two merchandised on display, so I thought I’d snap the look. I’m not finding the velvet top online.
I tried on the velvet top a week or two ago and here it is. I didn’t snap a pic of the ticket, so I can’t provide the style#. That would be handy so you can do an online search on the site. No ticket pic also means I don’t know the size I tried, but I’m guessing it was a S. It looked very, very vintage.
Ikat spots crewneck cardigan (253746) – Size S – I didn’t even bother trying on the PM because I liked the size S. Based on the online pic, I was convinced it would be a hit under the redwood schoolboy blazer. It was much more dull in color than I expected and a bit bosom-y. The buttons are metal and that’s why it’s flapped open like that. The weight of the buttons makes the top of the cardi flop around.
Raindrop print cardi (253748) – Size S – This very much reminded me of you know j’who. I thought it would look great w/the wool crepe pencil skirt in dark plum. But those buttons. I can’t deal w/the flopping. If I’m lucky enough to bump into it on super sale, I may consider it. I just know I’d never swap the buttons. Just ask my garden cardi that’s been waiting for me to reattach a button that was loose when I purchased it…
Tailored velveteen tux blazer (248448) – Size 6 – I was more impressed by the photo than in irl.Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice blazer. I think the vibe is just more masculine than feminine. I’m sure it would look much better on in a 6P, but that button stance is still a bit low. I’m wearing the raindrop cardi underneath. I thought the colors would be nice, but the styles didn’t work together.
Metallic croc pencil skirt (252656) – Size 6 – I thought the 4 was good last time I tried it on, but I was wrong. A 6 was much better. The pockets are not on seam, so they pucker out a bit. “Hip”-sters may not like this so much ;-). Now if I can just bring myself to get organized w/tights and get over feeling like I’m freezing, this may be a keeper.
