thursday threads [a-loft]

Thursday, January 31, 2013
i found this little peplum sweater gem at my favorite work-wear store, the loft. while they always have great clothes at very reasonable prices, i do have a few rules when shopping at there to get the max for my money [so i can afford crazy ridiculous otk boots. and yes, i'm going to be bringing them up for the rest of the winter, get used to it]:

1) do not buy anything full price. if you wait 2 weeks [i know, for the impatient like yours truly it's tough] you can almost always get it on sale
2) sign up for the store card. i usually stay away from these, but the rewards points i rack up [it doesn't take much] can be worth an item or two each season
3) sign up for their email list. they always send great deals & steals a few times a week

now that you're a loft-shopping pro, here's what i did with my newest loft find:

[loft peplum sweater (in some stores) - similar, h&m jeans, sam edelman tucker boots, c-wonder reversible belt & buckle]

 [leaning back a little too far... oh, and showing off the belt]

  [this look gets the beau-high-five of approval!]

[and in other good news, it's almost friday!]


  1. OMG!! haha that pic of you falling back is hilarious!! But it's ok! Because you did it gracefully I'm sure. ;)

  2. Cute puppy high five!


  3. I love the relaxed look and your pup is adorable!

  4. Aw, your puppy is adorable!
    I love shopping at Loft... Mostly for work-wear, too... but I love their casual stuff too. You're right, it's so hard to be patient when you see stuff you like, but since I get e-mails from them every day, it's a little easier to wait for a sale.
    This peplum top is great!

  5. Loft & I have a very confusing relationship. Their tops are generally always too big for me, even in an XS, which is strange, because it appears that their tops fit you, and I'd call us about the same size, so maybe Loft doesn't like me..?

    I guess the only confusing part of our relationship is the sizing. That, and most of their items are actually only moderately cute to me. But that might be when I'm looking at them through the remnants of my teenage years and am expecting everything to be tight, short, and inappropriate. Maybe? What am I even saying anymore?


    2. haha you crack me up. as for loft, i find that their petite tops fit me the best! just be careful and don't get an xxs. even my non-existant boobage doesn't fit in those tops!


leave me a little note!
