why I heart LOFT

The first time I ever stepped foot into loft I found a plethora of suit separates in 00p that all fit and were all on serious sale. WERE TALKIN' $4.88 each! Now, I have to admit that was beginners luck because I have never had that happen to me again in my two years shopping at the store, but Loft definitely has regular bargains if you know where to find them. 

When I walk into Loft, I don't even look at the full priced merch. Nope. I immediately run (never walk) to the sale section and begin scouring for my size. Usually there is a 30%, 40% or even 50% extra off sale so I do the math as I pick out pieces that I want to try on. This method of shopping has proved both fruitful and fruitless, as I've found deals but I've also missed out on full price awesome things.

Enter the Loft Scuba Jacket in tan. I wanted a suit this color since FOREVAH and I loved the fabric on this one from loft. The problem was the pants that matched the jacket were UGLY. I didn't buy the full suit because I knew I would hate the pants, and I didn't buy the jacket alone because I made myself stick by a rule that I will never purchase a blazer that didn't have a matching bottom.

Alas, I lost out on the blazer in my size... but months later I came across the same blazer in size 0 regular for 14 dolla! That's like, super cheap! I had/have plans to get it tailored - either taking in the back or moving the button so it fits tighter, and also getting the sleeves slimmed if its feasible. But for now, I'm pretty happy with the sleeve length and the length of the jacket as a whole.

    I like to buy matching sets of blazers and pants/skirts too. Looks like this shopping trip yielded far better results than the Asos post, which really made me laugh :)

  2. I absolutely love shopping at Loft for the same reasons as you! There are always bargains to be found and I am glad you got that Scuba tan blazer. It looks beautiful on you, and I've bought some jackets there without the matching pants/skirts. Thank you so much for stopping by, I'm now following your blog via google friend connect.
