Review: LOFT Spring 2018

Sale styles are currently an extra 40% off at LOFT, no code needed. I thought now might be a good time to review a few styles that I ordered earlier this year, as some of them are now on sale. 

LOFT Camellia Garden Shirtdress // 0P // Pink Fizz

STYLE NAME Camellia Garden Shirtdress
FIT Fits a little small on top, so size up if you are buxom. Size 0P measures 34″ in length, 17″ at the bust, and 14″ at the waist (flat measurements). Also offered in “maternity” sizes.
MATERIAL 100% polyester. It is lightweight, drapes nicely, and is not wrinkle-prone.
VERDICT This was a keeper. I like the print and its vibrant colors, and can see it becoming a weekend workhorse when the weather warms up. The flounce hem and the button front details are nice touches that make it a little dressy.

LOFT Bouquet Split Flutter Sleeve Top (Size XXS) || Bouquet Flounce Skirt (size 00P)

STYLE NAME Bouquet Split Flutter Sleeve Top
FIT Fits
true to size, but has stretch so you can size down if you are in between sizes. Size XXS measures 21.5″ in length.

MATERIAL 60% cotton and 40% modal. The material is soft and comfortable to wear.
VERDICT This was a (hesitant) keeper, ultimately kept as I can see it worn casually with linen shorts for summer. I didn’t keep the skirt in the same print (100% viscose and will likely require a good steam before every wear), which runs at least a size big, and in general a weird fit on me. 

LOFT Lace V-Neck Sheath Dress // Pure Jade // Size 00P

STYLE NAME Lace V-Neck Sheath Dress
FIT Half a size small on the bottom and half a size big on top. I think this might be flattering on the right body type, but the fit is definitely weird. I also found the asymmetrical hem an odd choice for this style of dress, and can see how the shorter front might be a constant source of concern. The dress in size 00P measures 31″ long in front, 35″ long in the back, 16.5″ at the bust, and 13.5″ at the waist (flat measurements).
MATERIAL 60% cotton and 40% nylon. Lined in the body.
VERDICT I returned this, I didn’t like the color in person (I had hoped it would be greener than the stock photo) and the fit was just off on me as I felt very awkward and uncomfortable in the few minutes that I had it on. I did like the pretty lace pattern and the scalloped neckline and back. 

LOFT Beach Paisley Wrap Flutter Dress // XXS // White

STYLE NAME Beach Paisley Wrap Flutter Dress
FIT This is a swim coverup so depending on how you intend to use it, different sizes may be appropriate. The size XXS is 33.5 long.
MATERIAL 100% rayon. The print was dull (in color) in person.
VERDICT I returned this; it was just underwhelming. I also thought it was overpriced for what it was.
