Shopping With Sue… At LOFT

September 21, 2010 at 4:28 pm , by

As I’ve mentioned in the past, the ladies of LHJ are lucky enough to have a LOFT store right downstairs in our office building. And believe me, we use it! Each day, my keen fashion eye picks up on several LOFT pieces worn by my co-workers. Even the woman at the top of the masthead was rocking her LOFT boyfriend chinos this past summer. Let’s just say the obsession has reached fever pitch.

So, I decided to share with you some of my latest LOFT obsessions:

Painted stripe boatneck tee: I know, I know. I probably have too many sailor stripe tees already but when I tried this super soft one with a perfect rounded boatneck, I just had to have it. Good luck finding the blue version (its sold out just about everywhere) but the plum and gray versions are also super pretty. (Wait–should I go back and get those colors, too?)

Scuba motorcycle jacket: I’m totally obsessed with this–motorcycle zipper details but in a soft knit fabric. LOVE! But I will certainly be waiting for the sale price. And with the way LOFT throws sales around, I probably won’t have to wait long. It’d be cute over a little dress or just with cargos or jeans.

Petite Marisa Slim Cargo Pants: Yay for LOFT petites! As someone who is only 5’1″, most pants I buy are too long on me. And though many brands offer petites only on their websites, LOFT carries petites in 503 stores.  I’ve barely taken these off since I bought them a few weeks ago. And lucky you: They’re so marked down right now, you can get them for $15! If you don’t need the petite version, click here, and know that I’m totally jealous of you and your long foxy legs.

Chunky twist gem necklace: The creamy rope will add a nice lightness to heavier fall clothes but I can certainly see myself wearing it all year round.

Shilla Tie Suede Bootie: I love the way the LOFT stylist put these boots with the cropped pants, so I guess I’ll take those, too!

I asked our own oft LOFT-clad Senior Designer, Cathie Yun why she likes the store and she said “Their designs are chic and pretty. They also have my size, petite, which is so hard to find. It’s a perfect fit! Also, love the accessory collection. What’s not to love?”

Cathie, I couldn’t have said it better myself. So, tell me, what have you picked up at LOFT lately?
