- Pleated Tweed Sheath Dress - 00P (buy here)
|Good length right above the knee|
|Arm holes are the perfect size|
|Not too snug in the back|
- Dislikes: My only wish would be that the waist were cinched in a bit more. The dress looks a bit boxy on me and doesn't do a whole lot to accentuate curves below the bust. As I have broad shoulders, I normally shy away from tops that just go straight up and back. If I were to wear this to work, I would probably add on a small bolero or cardigan to downplay my shoulders a bit. However, most petites out there don't have this problem and I could see this dress looking very flattering on them.
- Verdict: Will consider buying if it's <$30.
- Faux Wrap Sweater Dress - 00P (buy here)
|A little low cut in the front, but I like the ruching at the sides|
|Ribbed waistline in the back|
Likes: Nice warm material that hugs your curves. Side ruching is very flattering. Great length above the knee.
Dislikes: This is way too low-cut for me and I'd have to wear a cami underneath. Unfortunately because the material is so thin, it would be very noticeable and possibly bunch up over the course of the day.
Verdict: No buy. Not work appropriate. Bending over would mean disaster city. ^_^
- Jacket - XXSP
(I cannot, for the life of me, find this jacket on the website! Please comment below if you find the link. I just tried this on at the store on Saturday, 10/30, but I don't remember if it was on sale or not...)
|Fits the shoulders right on target. Love all the pockets!|
|How it looks unzipped|
Likes: The jacket fits pretty well and ends just above the hips, which is think is perfect for petite figures as it draws your eyes upwards in my opinion. I like how it's fitted so it's cinched in at the waist and has lots of pockets and zipper detailing. The color is also a gorgeous dusty purple which can be easily paired with most outfits.
Dislikes: Hm, can't think of any...
Verdict: If I didn't have a ton of jackets already, I would've bought this jacket. But I do have more jackets than I can wear at this point, so I left it on the rack for the next lucky LOFTer.
Lots of great stuff at LOFT this week! Hope this review helped you guys!!
