More Ann Taylor LOFT and OOTD

LOFT further discounted their sale stock yesterday by offering 50% off already reduced items. Since I had just gotten my loot at 40% off three days ago I thought I’d try my luck and see if they might be willing to do a price adjustment for me. I also wanted to check the stock in another LOFT by my house so I braved the 30-minute drive only to find out that they “absolutely” do not do price adjustments on sale items. They won’t even put my returned items back on the floor so if I wanted to keep my new tops, I’d have to be happy with my 40% off. Sigh, no big loss.

I did end up getting two items on sale for a pretty good price and tried on a bunch of things that were simply not flattering on me.

I have wanted this Scroll Print Skirt ever since I saw the J. Crew version on A Bigger Closet. I don’t think this was offered in petite sizes but the store I visited didn’t even have it in 0s. I ended up walking out with the size 2 because I don’t want to risk losing it. It sits really low on my hip (picture added, sorry it’s blurry, in the first picture the skirt is worn slightly higher on my hip) but I kind of like the length now. Am I delusional?

Then there was this dress. I saw it on Saturday in the other LOFT store but they didn’t have any smaller sizes available. I was so excited to see the 00P tag peeking out from a pile of similar dresses today though it is definitely slightly tight around/under the bust for me (darn you oversized rib cage). I liked the design too much to part with it. Looks a bit inspired by the Rodarte for Target slip dress.

This particular LOFT had tons of 00p pants and I ended up trying on a few pairs even though it’s just another sad reminder of why I don’t wear pants. They look terrible on me. The 00ps are all too tight in the thigh and too loose in the waist. I also tried on the skirt that Callandra wore in this post (also seen on PAG) and the waist was a bit loose on me too and looked stiff so I passed.

In other LOFT news, I ordered the ruffle front cardigan (a more understated version here) that I wore in this post in pink and the Petite 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan with Bow (both in XXSP) that I have loved for a while using their store service ($7.50 shipping for both items). This process has been confusing so far as I haven’t quite figured out how much they plan to charge me as neither the sales associate who took my order nor the confirmation e-mail can answer my question of “how much did I just spend”? All I know is: I’ll find out how much I have been charged when I receive my package. I’ll keep you all posted.

And today’s outfit. A tad too uniform-y but I suppose that’s ok. 🙂
