Soooo, seeing as how I was at the mall anyway, I went to check out LOFT & Gap for their respective additional 50% off sale items promo.
No shopping outfit pic today - I was geared for comfort so imagine long skirt, thick tights, and flats - warm, but not cute. We'll start with LOFT. I was actually a little disappointed in their sale section which is probably a blessing in disguise so I spent more time checking out their regular price items.
Cotton Metal Zip Front Skirt, Fall Olive, Sz 0, $59.50
This runs a bit big and is not available in petite sizing. I will say that this fits very nicely (no waist gap) after my giant dim sum outing earlier in the morning :)
Verdict: Waiting for sale
Nautical Stripe T-Shirt, XSP, $49.50
I really liked this in the yellow stripe I have on above but only SP was available and it was huge. This fits much better in XSP especially considering that this isn't meant to be a fitted tee.
Verdict: Will wait for sale - but prefer the yellow
Blazer - can't find online so have no idea about the name, 2P (smallest size available)
Too big - it actually makes me look so much heavier - boo. I'll try to find a 0P or 00P for comparison.
Verdict: Definitely not
Cowl Neck Sweater, Green Melange, XS, $15
OK, so I know the fit on this isn't wonderful (a little too spacious in the torso) but I really love the cowl and the green. I'm imagining wearing this with skinny khakis and tall black boots.
Lace Scallop Dress, 2P (smallest size available), $35
This was sooo cute on the hanger, but I think a 0P or possibly a 00P would have fit better. It just looked like one straight, shapeless tent. When I pinch off a little of the fabric, it looks much better. I suppose I could slim it myself or add a belt but I try not to buy things that I need to "fix" unless it's a "must-have" item.
Verdict: No, but would love to try a smaller size
Now on to the Gap sale:
Navy Blue Cardigan, XS
Too boxy and SUPER itchy!
Zip Front Sweater, Cream, XS, $4
This looks cute in the photos and fits relatively well but the material just attracted all sorts of dust bits and was already starting to pill. Bad sign, so despite the amazing price, I had to put it back.
So I made it out of the mall with just one item, the $15 LOFT sweater. Pretty good, eh? :) Any shopping adventures this weekend for you?
