Plaid shirtdress (345720, $79.50) runs XS – XXL.
Size S – This runs tts, imo. There was a little pulling at the chest (38″ across fullest part). I didn’t feel exposed and it’s nothing that a little fashion tape can’t fix. I use Topstick. The fabric is lightweight and it’s definitely a transitional fall (not winter) dress. Climate dependent, of course.
It felt like a cute little plaid dress. I’d prefer a flannel or cotton so it would feel cozy. It didn’t quite feel comfortable and easy enough to be a Monday or Friday dress. Easy as in don’t want to think about pulling, length or fit. The print & colors are cute, though.
Polka dot chambray shirtdress ($89.50) runs XXS – XL (351393) & petite XXS – XL. 100% cotton, which is nice.
Size S – I really liked this one on. There’s no definition in the waist. Another shirtdress. If you have a curvy shape, you’ll create a nice silhouette in it. Uh. Something like that. Interesting note that there are no belt loops. The dress was asking for the belt to be worn, so I didn’t even think to try it on without the belt.
If you have a smaller waist than hips, this will look really cute on you. Note that shirttail hem. It makes the dress look more like a shirt than a dress. If you’re shorter, it will look closer to a dress than if you’re taller.
Piped shirtdress (338762, $89.50) runs regular XXS – XL, petite XXS – XL & tall XS – XL.
Size S – This one was very interesting. It totally felt like a pajama top on the top half. That had a cool aspect to it. However, visually it really looked like a comfy bedroom top with a skirt more than a dress. All this said, it works, somehow, as a dress. I think it needs a belt and necklace to draw the eye to other places so people.
I couldn’t get it to sit right on my body. It sat crooked and so the white piping did, too. A petite medium would have a shorter torso and probably yield a better fit. The dress was very comfortable. No pockets.
Left pic is with the drawstring sitting up high and top half pulled up. Note that if you have a defined waist, the drawstring will befried it. On me, the drawstring is confused. lol The right pic is with the dress pulled straight down.
Lou & Grey knit moto jacket (342853, $79.50) runs XS – XL.
Size M – I love the Lou & Grey line. It’s sometimes included from promos when it’s full price. Once it goes on sale, any additional % off promos apply. It looks like the addtl 40% off applies. There was only M to try. If I wanted to layer under, size M might be the best bet. If I wanted it to fit closer to the body and possibly a little shorter, ize S would be better. So go tts if you want a tighter, closer fit. If you take 2 different sizes, consider the larger of your two sizes if you want more room.I’d probably go with a S, personally, because I think it’s going to stretch a little with wear. I also don’t think I’d layer anything too thick under it.
I’m wearing the curvy skinny ankle zip jeans, which I passed on at $44.99 + 40% off in-store. They were too tight in some places and loose in others. The curvy fit isn’t the best match for me. I do have one pair of curvys and I sized down to 6/28. The fit doesn’t work, though, because it’s more for those w/curves on the sides. I’m more straight on the sides so there’s a little extra material there.
One thing nice about the neckline is that it’s a bit open at the collarbone. It made me think of the knit bomber jackets currently in style. I liked it unzipped a little bit, too.
is $10 more than the regular & tall. I should’ve Facebooked & Tweeted Loft about it. Maybe they would’ve dropped the price down. Ya never know
* Corded stripe pleat skirt – So cute and has pockets! $55 on sale. Note the rear, exposed zip in case you’re not a fan of the trend.
* Floral v-back dress – Cute print. A creme version.
* Floral v-back dress – A blue version. This one is $39.88. What a bargain and it’s not showing as final sale.
* Floral v-back dress – There must be a shortage of product names at the brainstorming table. I saw this one irl. The base color was odd. A little sickly, in fact.
