Loft - October (II)

A while back I noticed some new arrivals on the Loft website and stopped into the B&M store to check them out in person. One of them was the beautiful Coatigan in 'charcoal heather' and size XS/S. The texture is that of boiled wool, but it is a wool mix, in fact.

This Coatigan also comes in petite sizes in 'black.' I am trying a Petite Medium in the photo below. It is much shorter than regular sizes, but I could wear it as an open cardigan.

The cute sweater dress underneath is the Ivy Jacquard Sweater Dress size S. ThHis is also a wool mix. The background looks grey in the photo below, but it is actually a taupe. I really liked this sweaterdress a lot.

What else I liked at the Loft:

J. Crew - October (IV)

This past weekend I popped into the JC store hoping to see some of the new arrivals. Unofrtunately, I was a couple of days too early, as the new stock was in stores toay only. I did manage to check out some of the previous roll-out's offerings, though. Among them, the  size 6. The fabric is a wool mix with a leather trim. It looks adorable in real life, although it is a bit too short for me. Fits TTS, in my opinion.

Next was a pretty ivory coloured top, the Tassel Trim Top size 2.  I am anywhere between size 2 to 6 in tops and shirts at JC. I think I would settle for a size 4 and would wear it with a belt over it.

Cap-Sleeve Shirttail Blouse (size 2, 'dark poppy') is made from a similar fabric as the top above and comes in five other colours. The fabric feels really silky on. I think I would size up in this one as well.

Lastly, my favourite piece, the  Pinstripe Zip Sweater, size S, my usual sweater size. The sweater is all wool, with knit back and sleeves and a pinstripe fabric front.

Code STYLETREAT will get you 25% off regular priced items and 30% off sale one at JC through October 31. Will yo be shopping this sale? Please share. Personally, I am hoping for a few items to go on sale soon and am holding out until then.

Hope your week has started on a good note, and have a safe Tuesday out there! We are bracing for another big rainstorm here. In fact, the entire week looks like it's going to be all rain.

Woodsy Floral

While visiting our Loft Village store this weekend, I found the Woodsy Floral Sweater on super sale.  I had previously tried this sweater on here. I went with the 'deep hydrangea blue' this time, since I could pair it well with quite a few items in my closet. One way is with the Patch-Pocket Pencil Skirt I got last year, which is a favourite of mine.
