I was hoping to get this review up in time for the 40% off sale yesterday but my 2nd batch of orders didn’t arrive until late in the day 🙁  Right now, you still can get 40% off select knit tops and skirts with code: SHOP40. My pick for today is this herringbone pencil skirt – looks promising!

Likes: I absolutely love the color. It’s going to be great for Fall but also can be easily worn in all seasons. I have been loving all shades of yellow lately. The sizing surprisingly fits nicely. It’s a blous-y fit which I am fine with.  You could slim the sides by 1″ each but I think I will leave it alone.  It looks good un-tucked for a casual look and works fine tucked in for work. The best part is that the arms are slim! Finally! Most tops these days have really wide arms and I think it makes or breaks a blouse if it has large arms. Some people are not big fans of 3/4″ but I really like them and I think it looks great on this type of blouse.

Dislikes: Nothing – love.

This isn’t the best example of it being tucked (too lazy to change) in since the waist on this skirt is still too big for me but at least you get the idea.
Verdict: Definitely keeping and debating other colors. I’m planning on pairing this top with the donegal tweed skirt (post alterations) for Fall.

Donegal Tweed Skirt – size 00P (qualifies for the 40% off now)

Likes: I love the olive color and have been wanting a wool skirt in this shade for quite some time. I was happy to see that it did NOT have an exposed zipper.  It’s fully lined and the quality is good. 
Dislikes: I expected the sizing to run bigger – most LOFT items do – especially their skirts. The length is a bit short for work but possibly could work with opaque tights. 
Measurements: waist = 14″ across, hips = 17″ length = 16.5″
Verdict: Keeping and will professionally tailor – I’ll take in each side/waist by 1″ making the waist 12″ across. I think post alterations, it will look really nice with some tights and brown boots.

Likes: I love my sweater dress from last year and liked the throw back vibe  to this one. The rich colors and stripes sold me. The fit is decent but the waist area is a bit weird…maybe add a belt? I like that it’s roomy enough to layer for Fall. The length is great for someone my height (5′ tall).
Dislikes: The ribbed waist is nice to define the waist but something about it just looks weird to me. 
Verdict: Undecided..possibly return. Thoughts?

Tweed Skirt Dress – size XXSP
Likes: I love the bright colored top portion paired with the pretty speckle tweed on the bottom. It looked like it had a lot of potential online. The length is good and I like the pleated detail on top.
Dislikes: The fit is a bit wide in the waist and top and does nothing for my figure.
Verdict: Return.
