I had no idea the last LOFT haul post would be so controversial! I had a ton of feedback about the items, and I really really appreciated everyone's honest advice since I was slightly on the fence about most of them. The first sweater is probably going back since it wasn't comfy enough or cheap enough for me to overlook the "diseased" nubs I can't stop thinking about now after reading Aubrey's comment. I also had no idea those jeans were so unflattering! They're an old adult-sized A&F jeans that I bought a long time ago and was so excited about then because they "fit". I haven't worn them in a while and pulled them out for pics because I haven't had time to do laundry lol. I guess those are going in the washer/dryer a few more times to see if I can get them to fit better.
But to continue with my mini LOFT haul, I actually only have a couple more items to talk about. First is the Cable Sweater Dress in XXSP ($27, orig $90):
I actually liked this in the dark grey version too, but already have a charcoal grey sweater dress from LOFT that I got last year, so I decided to get this in the neutral color.
I thought the fit was pretty good. I liked that the cables are on the top half, which adds a little bit of bulk to the bust and makes it more flattering :) I can't decide if the ribbing was meant to be a empire waist, but it hits me at a good spot to define the waist and would probably look good belted as well. The material is not itchy, but does shed quite a bit because when I hugged hubby, I left yarn bits all over his black shirt. I wonder if a wash will fix that?
After discounts, it came out to about $24 (orig $80) which was definitely reasonable, so I picked it up in size 00P:
As you can see in the first tucked in pic, it sits pretty low on my waist like most other LOFT skirts. But because the length is decent and hits me above the knee, I think it looks okay when worn under tops. This is me trying a "walking pose" a la Chloe lol:
I've been wanting a lace skirt for a while now, and this does hit the spot even though I do wish it sits a bit higher. That said, Kileen juuuust picked up a lace pencil skirt from H&M for me today that I haven't been able to find in my size, so I might have to reconsider once I try that on. But for now, bring on the comments and opinions! :)
