CONGRATS, woman! Happy shopping!!!!

----------------------------------------------------


This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Loft.


I must admit, when I heard that I would be trying on clothes at LOFT (used to be Ann Taylor LOFT)...I didn't fully understand the differences between Ann Taylor and the newer division company: LOFT.

Allow me to share my research findings between the two stores:

Ann Taylor:
high quality
classic looks
conservative
high end prices
older business class women
majority of items are dry clean only
(where your mom shops)

LOFT:
casual chic
trendy and classy
great quality at a reasonable price
middle to younger business professionals
majority of items are machine washable
(where you shop)

HOW HAVE I NEVER WALKED INTO THIS STORE BEFORE?!?! It was love at first sight!


When discussing age-appropriate apparel, my friends and I often talk about how we are "stuck"...you know, stuck in between a "teenybopper" and a middle-aged mom. It is a common conversation among women my age (29 & knockin' on thirty's door), am I right?

But I'm tellin' ya, girlfriends---look no further! LOFT is exactly what I was looking for and caters to all the many different aspects of a woman's life. BlogHer hooked me up with: a $200 LOFT gift certificate (thank you, BlogHer!), an amazing professional stylist
(thank you, Bret!), and a very talented professional photographer (thank you, Heather!).

We were given 45 minutes to complete a “Style Challenge”--where we put together three perfect holiday looks from LOFT: the perfect party outfit, an office-to-party outfit, and a casual holiday look. Here are pics from my very own, SUPER fun, LOFT SHOPPING PARTAAAY!

Perusing the aisles before we begin--SO many cute things to choose from!


Trying to find the perfect combination...Modern Boot light wash jean with a swirl appliqué T-shirt and toggle-button sweater coat.



Look #1: Casual Holiday...a laid back look that will keep you cozy and cute during your downtime this holiday. Black cords paired with a chiffon blouse, complete with a stylish gray sweater coat and long fringe necklace.


Bret working his magic! (Umm, can you come shopping with me every time?)



Look #2: Office-to-Party...a versatile look that you can transform from office-appropriate to party-ready in no time! Cuffed, wool striped trouser pants with a cascading ruffle blouse and soft velveteen blazer.


Lets not forget the SUPER cute bauble necklace! (They have THE BEST accessories! I was in heaven.) I LOVED the royal blue shirt paired with the long magenta beads. I'm all about colors that POP!



Look #3: Perfect Party Outfit...from low-key style to full-on glamour, an outfit that will make you shine at any get-together. A beautiful party dress with an iridescent sheen paired with a long knotted rope necklace. Simple and smashing!


Okay--now down to business...what to purchase?! My dressing room was filled to the brim with layer after layer of adorable clothing & accessories!


I hear great things about LOFT denim- so I enlisted the help of my uber-fashion-extraordinaire stylist to find me a pair of skinny jeans that I could wear with my (previously purchased from another store) boots. I am TERRIFIED of skinny jeans, but LOVE the boots-over-jeans look that is so hot right now. (yes, I just used the phrase "so hot right now"). Here's what we put together! I LOOOOVE them! Bret made me a believer.


SOOOO...What did I make it home with???

The adorable gray sweater coat and the Modern Skinny dark wash jean (Regular, Size 6).


The Deep Twilight Blue Corsage Crew Neck Cardigan with "jewel" buttons (I LOVE the girly corsage- which dresses up your ordinary cardigan. LOFT was full of cute tops with ruffles and frills---right up my alley! SO hard to choose!)


Modern Boot Cut light wash jean (Regular, size 6) which fits me PERFECTLY--LOFT denim runs true to size, which is SO nice. Oh, and by the way- these jeans were on sale for $14.99! (Playing with my little monkey- Ethan...one of my 2 yr old quadruplets! Click HERE to see more of my precious family)


And if you know anything about me...you know I just couldn't pass up this awesome necklace! Accessories are KEY in taking an outfit to the next level. (and I LOVED the blue and purple combination)



Is LOFT a good "fit" for you? Here are some things to consider...

STORE ENVIRONMENT:
The store at NorthPark in Dallas, TX was well organized and easy to maneuver with super friendly and accessible staff members. You can find LOFT stores inside a mall or outside shopping center (Click HERE for a store locator). They have special store events like last Saturday-there was a live DJ playing, the atmosphere was fun and relaxing--just an all around great experience. Did I mention there were free snacks and drinks on this particular day? I was comfortable and did not feel out of place---you know, like at those teenybopper stores where you are the oldest person in there? Yah- not the case at LOFT!


LOFT CLOTHING:
Trendy. Casual. Fun! I texted my hubby & several friends on the way home and told them that I just found my new favorite place to shop--(no lie!) If you are looking for fun and flirty---LOFT has it. If you are looking for classy business attire---LOFT has it. If you are looking for casual and comfy---LOFT has it. And the greatest part about it- is that you can mix and match everything! Such a versatile collection of cute, affordable clothing---exactly what I'm looking for in this economy.

I also love their easy-to-use online website. If you want a quick way to check out some of their styles, click on "Looks We Love" ...its like having your own personal stylist right there in the computer! See below for an exclusive coupon before you start shopping!

A quick run down on their prices:
Tops- $9.99 (sale price) to $49.99
Pants/Skirts- $19.99 (sale price) to $89.99
Dresses- $39.99 (sale price) to $100+
Jeans- $14.99 (sale price) to $79.99


LOFT DENIM:
JUST SAY NO- to "Mom Jeans"!
LOFT recently re-tooled all of their denim fits and washes to make them a perfect fit at a remarkable value. I 100%, absolutely found this to be true with my experience. The two jeans that I tried on, I purchased (MODERN BOOT & MODERN SKINNY). I didn't have to size swap--I knew my size, tried on my size, and was ready to go! Which is SO nice and time efficient. Their jeans average around $59- which I think is affordable for the quality of the denim.


PETITE COLLECTION:
Some of my closest friends and family are short in stature and it is challenging to find appropriate fitting clothes (pants especially). The fact that LOFT has an entire section devoted to their petite collection shows just how much they try to cater to all body types.

I LOVED outfit #3- everybody needs a fantastic holiday outfit and this would be something that I coud wear after the holidays, too. I am a second time new mommy and would enjoy doing a little shopping at an "age appropriate" store. :)Thanks for the info- I am off to check out "Loft".

abby said...

I love the casual holiday look! So me. Perfect for the on-the-go mom! I am going to be taking my 21 month old to a few holiday playdates and this would be perfect to wear!

And I used to shop at Ann Taylor Loft all the time... I didn't know they are known as LOFT now. Thanks for the update!

Amy said...

My favorite wasn't one of the ones to vote on! Loved the boots over the skinny jeans with the chunky sweater. Looks warm, cozy, and totally versatile.

Lauren aka Mrs. V said...

I really really like the office to party look. I am a loft-a-holic so $200.00 could do this girl some good!

Jeff, Abbey, and Reed Land said...

The casual look, probably because it appeals to me the most right now. I discovered The Loft a few years back and LOVE their clothes.

Jennifer said...

I love the casual holiday #1 outfit. Since I am a stay-at-home mom this outfit suits me more and I know I would wear it more often then the others....

You looked great in all the outfits and how fun to go and have a shopping spree! Oh, I so hope I win this :)

Mallory said...

I like outfit number 2, the office to party look. I work in an office full of women and we all have to dress professionally. Being among the younger girls (I'm 25) it's kind of harder for me to find age-appropriate office attire...I could definitely use this store =)

Alyssa said...

I love love love the office party look! I am often faced with the dilemma of how to go from the office to a party and not look boring..you look amazing!!

Laura said...

I love EVERY look. The outfit with your new boots is my kind of style. :) I am a mom as well and trying to find that look that doesnt make you look to mom like and to teen like is so hard. I LOVE LOFT! There is actually one right around the corner from us :) They always have what you need :)I also have a question about starting a blogher blog :) Hope you could help!

Office-To-Party is my fav. I seriously can't believe you didn't know about LOFT. it is and has been my absolute favorite for years.

The Smiths said...

I love LOFT too! #3 is my favorite; super cute and flattering! Love the necklace!

I'm going to have to go with the Casual Holiday look. It looks like something I'd wear (if, of course, I could fit into such clothes...).

Ashley & Chuck said...

I love the purple dress but I think I would be most comfortable in the causal holiday look! You looked great in each look!

Kimberly Jordan and Sophie said...

I like look #1, Casual Holiday. You looked great though, in them all. I work, so I would get use out of all 3 cute outfits, but if I could have my choice, I'd dress in Casual Holiday'esque attire everyday. I LOVE Loft, too. It's perfect for late 20's stay at home moms, working moms and non-moms alike.

I love outfit number three! Isn't it nice to get dressed up once in awhile? Be glamorous? The dress looks fantastic but also comfortable. Great pop of color and not your same old lbd (little black dress)

Jill said...

Suz, you look amazing in all of the outfits, but my favorite is the office 2 party. You look radiant!

Jennifer said...

I love all 3 outfits but I guess my favorite would be #1. I'm more of a casual person so that one was perfect for me.

Brenda said...

I love the dress! So pretty and fun at the same time.

Love look #2, but #1 is more pratical for my daily life. It does look like a great store. I need to go check them out.

I really loved the Holiday Casual look. It looked very comfortable but was still nice. Looks like you had a great time. I am so jealous. You totally deserved this though. Have a very Merry Christmas.

Love the office to party look! LOFT is absolutely my fave store, I can't believe you hadn't shopped there before! I think at least half of my wardrobe is probably from that store. I love their jeans too!

My favorite outfit is Office-to-Party. It is too cute, and definitely wearable throughout the day. You can change it up so much! I have to say I so appreciate your review. I am a working mom with 2 kids under the age of 2, so the "me" aspect of shopping happens only on a have-to-have-right-now basis. I LOVE Loft, but have never bought any jeans (although I'm in desperate need of some). Now that I know how cute and comfortable they are, I'm heading that way before the holidays are upon us :-)

Amanda said...

I am always trying to find an outfit that I can wear out on the town, at home and even to church!!!

I like the office to party look.
I'd love to dress like that to work every day but I would totally need like 80 gift cards to AT LOft to complete that!

Charla (SHar-la) said...

HOLYTIN! (I had to use it, it was the word verification below...hehe)!

First I have to say that The Loft has been my favorite store since I first learned of it in college. I LOVE it...perfect for those who are tired of buying non-quality clothes only to replace them a few months later. And being the fashionista and cutie you are, I'm as shocked as you are that this was your first LOFT experience! And now you'll never leave! HAHA!

I love the Casual HOliday look...love the comfy-looking grey sweater cardigan.

Catherine said...

Office to party. Love it. I'm a few years (36) older than you and have been shopping at Loft for years. Love their stuff.

susan said...

I think the office to party look is my favorite. It's the most practical, in my opinion.

I liked the casual holiday look. I am a stay at home mom of two, so it is nice to be comfortable but cute at the same time!

I like outfit 1 best. It looks like something I could really see myself wearing, and then changing peices around to go with other items. It's full of staple items!!!

Alyssa said...

My favorite is outfit 3- love that dress! Loft has been my favorite store for a long time! It's the only place I can find XXSP and 00P sizes that don't look too young! And you gotta love their corsage tops- my closet is filled!

I Love the Casual Holiday look! People at work don't even ask me anymore where I got something, because they know the answer is going to be "Ann Taylor Loft." Seriously, how did you not shop here before!??!? :)

Michaela said...

I am mostly in a laid-back look which means jeans and a t-shirt so I love the Casual Holiday Outfit!

I LOVE all the looks, but I think the casual is my favorite. I'm a stay-at-home mom to an almost 2 year old, so casual is my life right now!

Wow.. I love the Office to Party Look! Having a casual work environment ((we get to wear jeans and tenni's)) and being a new mom.. I'm finding is so hard to find styles that work with looking classy.. and role I play as a mother!

I like Outfit #2 the best. I think the colors look amazing on you.

Anonymous said...

I'm loving them all!! My favorite would have to be #2 - the office to party. I work full time and am a mother of two (15 & 10) and we are always running somewhere after work and school. That outfit sure would "one up" all those moms that show up in sweatpants. HA! I've just checked to see if there is a Loft store in Birmingham and there is. I'll definately be visiting them this weekend. My sis-n-law is pregnant with her first and I see that they have a maternity section - hoot hoot!! We'll have a blast. karenwilliams@thompsontractor.com

Brandi said...

I LOVE them all but I'm a casual girl, so I absolutely loved the casual holiday look. Glad you took that grey sweater home!

Isaac Dakota said...

Love the casual holiday #1. Still can't do skinny jeans or jeans inside boots. I think it comes from having too many high waters as a kid so now I like to see my pants sitting on top of my shoes.

Graceandjoelroberts said...
