I stopped into my local Loft this week for a small dressing room diaries. DRD is when I go into a local store and try on their newest clothes so you can see how they look on a woman over 25 who wears a size much larger than a zero. The lighting is bad, I am usually barefoot and the photos are often blurry… but you’ll get the idea.
I started with this floral blouse. Dark base floral prints are very popular this fall and the Loft has lots of them. This neckline is flocked and high which is not a flattering look with my broad shoulders. The sleeves have a gathered cuff with small ruffle at the bottom.
It has a poet shape so would look nice worn untucked. I think this blouse would look better with white jeans for more contrast. This dark floral top would have been a better shape on me because of its V-neckline and shorter length.
These high rise skinny jeans may not be the best deal in town for great fitting skinny jeans, but they come pretty darn close. The fit is terrific, the fabric is substantial yet stretchy, and the wash is a nice saturated blue. I tried on a pair of cigarette jeans this week that were 3 times the price and not as nice as these. It pays to shop around ladies. These are available in regular, petite, plus and tall. They’re also 50% off! What’s easier than tossing a gauzy scarf over jeans and a tee to polish the look? Loft has some very pretty ones right now and they’re all on sale. This one was not at the store or I would have brought it home. Lightweight scarves are great pieces to help us transition the seasons when the weather is not cooperating.
This long knit duster is very long on me which I happen to love Dusters feel dramatic at this sweeping length, but if that’s not your thing, they’re also available in petite. This is a medium so I think they run a bit large. This duster is featherweight and a great way to get a fall look when the weather is still hot.
This long vest is heavier and cozier. It’s a soft gray speckled fabric which has a very casual vibe. This is a medium which is a bit roomier than I would like so I would size down. This would be fun over a black turtleneck, black jeans and booties this winter.
The Loft is having a great sale on their new fall/winter collection right now so it’s a good time to take a look.
Do you like the long over lean look?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
