Dressing Room Diaries: At The Loft

Dressing Room Diaries: At The Loft

I enjoy shopping at the Loft.  Their prices are excellent plus their dressing rooms are clean, spacious and frequently have benches to put my things on. Did you ever notice that things look better on you in clean, well-lit dressing rooms?

Almost everything in this post is on sale 40% off with the code HAPPY. On my visit last week I was drawn to color and texture. I started with this Kimono Wrap Cardigan because I loved its color.

They call it Icy Peach but it is closer to a neutral blush in person. This is the regular but think the petite version would be a better proportion for me. It also comes in this flecked black which might go with more things.

This Mockneck short sleeve sweater felt like chenille to me and was super soft. A great layering piece and amazing for $29.99. I topped it with this Velvet Puffer Vest.

I love it! The color is called Hazy Skies which is a bit bluer than my pictures show. The lighting was excellent in the dressing room but cell phones don’t always capture colors accurately. What a great way to dress down velvet for every day!

This Cold Shoulder Cable sweater is navy and also comes in ivory. The concept is interesting but I didn’t like it on me. I’m larger above the waist than below so prefer to add less bulk on top. Just to add insult to injury I also tried on the dress version and surprised myself.

This color is called Grey Ivory and because there is less contrast with my skin I prefer it over the navy sweater version. The cabling also adds some bulk to my hips which helps balance my shoulders.

This Fuzzy Open Sweater and Plaid Scarf are a gorgeous Midnight Spruce. Super soft and cozy but as usual I needed the petite version. Very lightweight, wearable and machine washable.

I loved this Lou & Grey shirttail sweater. My local Loft only carries a small selection of  Lou & Grey so I went online to see what else was available and found it also comes in Whisper White and Pink!

This was one of those Dressing Room Diaries when I could see myself wearing most everything I tried on. Now that they’re on sale, they look even better to me.

    Hi Jennifer,
    Two questions for you: do you follow any particular food or exercise plan? Also, a few months ago you posted a recipe (including gin and raisins) that was touted as a possible remedy for dealing with arthritis. I was wondering if you are taking it and if you have had any positive results. I had written the recipe down for my sister and found it recently but realized that you hadn’t posted any feedback on it, unless I missed it.

    I really enjoy your blog – thank you!

      Hi Chris! I don’t eat meat, only fish and eat gluten free. My excercise is spotty and I need to do more. Much more for bone health and general well being. I tried the raisins in gin for about a month. They tasted yucky but to be honest, my arthritis is less painful. I haven’t continued the raisins yet my arthritis is still less painful. I’m not sure there’s a connection but happy for the relief. I think it’s worth a try.

      You’re so wonderful Deede. She is laying in my lap right now and has taken her first anti inflammatory after being hand fed roasted chicken. Xx
