These some recent fitting room reviews:
Loft Summer Sweater Loft modernhigh rise white jeansSummer sweater (xxsp) // White jeans (24P) // Shoes
Likes: Material is soft (100% cotton) and the sleeves fit perfectly.  Love the tassel detail and seafoam color.  It doesn’t look like much online but when you put it on, it’s super cute.  Available in two colors and a striped version.  Love that it’s machine washable too! 
Dislikes: Not sure why the tassels appear so long on me because it’s not on the model.  The v-neck could be slightly too low cut for some gals.  I think it’s fine but just wanted to point this out.
Verdict:  Purchased and would recommend.  Buy HERE and see it styled HERE.

Loft blossom shirred utility blouse Loft petite fitting room reviews, Loft modern distressed skinny jeans Ferragamo vara bow pumpsBlossom utility blouse  (xxsp) // Jeans (similar HERE) // Shoes
Likes: I like the flower print and it’s super comfortable and relaxed – great for weekends or you could wear it tucked in with a pencil skirt for work.
Dislikes: The arms are long on me and the overall look just didn’t do it anything for me. 
Verdict: Passed.
Loft fluid tank Loft petite fitting room reviews LOFT distressed denim jeans Ferragamo Vara bow pumpsFluid tank (tropical pink, xxsp) // Jeans (similar HERE) // Shoes
Likes: This is cute basic tank that fits really nicely. Arm holes are small and the width is just right – not tight or loose.  The material is 60% cotton, 40% modal but feels silky to the touch.  A little bit fancier than your typical basic tank.  Comes in seven different colors.
Dislikes: I have no complaints.
Verdict:  Would recommend.  Buy HERE.
Likes: This dress has a lot of potential to look cute but definitely was not the case on me.  However, I do like the color and pretty print.  
Dislikes: The length hits at a very awkward part (supposed to be midi length).  Personally, I don’t like halter styles plus you have a wear a strapless bra (boo).  This would look much nicer on a taller gal.
Verdict:  Would recommend if you’re taller.
Likes: I adore the jigsaw quilting and slight cap sleeves. Chambray is easy to wear for Summer and this top is no fuss.  Throw it on and go. Would look cute with shorts and sandals.
Dislikes: Sizing runs very large so I’d recommend going down 1-2 sizes. This is cute but didn’t do much for me.
Verdict:  Passed.
Ferragamo vara bow pump Loft belted cargo jumpsuit Petite jumpsuit
Belted cargo jumpsuit (xxsp)

Likes: The only positive things I could find is that this jumpsuit is super comfortable and I like the olive color.  Not sure what possessed me to try this on but I was curious as to how this would look on me.  I 
Dislikes: The top portion fits very big and the waist is loose even when belted.  Cute concept but not for me.
Verdict:  Passed.
Ann Taylor petite seersucker jacket
Likes: I always love a good seersucker blazer and this one seemed as if it had some potential.  I like the simple, classic style.  It could double both as casual and work attire.
Dislikes: It’s nothing to write home about.  It’s decent but fits wide and sleeves appear to wrinkle easily.  I wasn’t that impressed.
Verdict:  Passed.
Likes: Love the color and flutter sleeves.  
Dislikes: Material is very thin and it didn’t impress me.
Verdict:  Passed. (see it tucked in below)
Likes: Adore the embroidered dot print. Fully lined and decent quality.
Dislikes: The skirt runs big.  Ann Taylor vanity sizing at it’s best.  The waist is loose and the hips are wide.  I could have done w/out the black elastic waistband. 
Verdict:  Passed.
Likes: I like the unique dot chevron print.  Arm holes are small and the back has a hidden zipper.  Dress is fully lined and decent quality.
Dislikes: Sizing runs generous and the shift style is very unflattering on someone my size. It has no shape whatsoever and looks horrible on me.  I’d recommend sizing down.
Verdict:  Passed.
Boy shirt in crinkle gingham (size 00, available in petites and tall)
Likes: Everyone is always on the hunt for a classic gingham shirt so I decided to try this one on. No petites in store so this is the smallest size I could find.  Navy color and size of gingham passed my test.
Dislikes: The overall length is extremely long which makes tucking in very difficult. It’s a softer crinkle fabric but I prefer a crisp material for this type of shirt (like my Banana Republic one HERE). 
Verdict:  Passed but would recommend if you can find the right size.
Likes: I really like the shade of blue and the wide vertical stripes.  It’s very preppy and could be dressed up for work or worn casually with jeans.  The length is cut much shorter and seems to be a slimmer fit than the boy shirt.
Dislikes: No petite sizing, only sizes 000-16 are available. Sleeves are long on me but sizing runs more true to size. I wish they wouldn’t have added a chest pocket, it would have looked much sleeker without it.  If this came in petites, I would be all over it.  I’m curious to see how the 000 would fit.
Verdict: Would recommend. Buy HERE.
Anthropologie jardin floral petite skirt BP luminate mint sandals fitting room reviews seamless two way tankJardin skirt (00p) // Tank // Shoes
Likes: Since not all Anthropologie stores carries petite sizing in store, I always ask my local store to check the back room for any online returns. They usually come out with a a few things for me to try on.  This skirt is so pretty and fits perfectly!  I love the botanical print and the length is just right.  The flouncy circle silhouette just makes you want to twirl around.  So pretty!
Dislikes: It’s dry clean only and a bit pricey.
Verdict:  Would recommend. Buy HERE.
Anthropologie Vasanti peasant top
Likes: This has all the components of a shirt that I would love.  It’s flowy and the style is very pretty. The overal length is great for petites.
Dislikes: Unfortunately sizing runs very big. I’m trying on an XXSP and it was still generous. 
Verdict:  Could be cute on someone else, would recommend. Buy HERE.
Likes: I almost fell over when I saw this top.  It’s so gorgeous!  The lace and pearl detailing are amazing.  The quality is very nice. 
Dislikes: Sizing runs generous and how the top lays is very unflattering. Way too much fabric and almost looks like a maternity top.  The price is enough to make you fall over.
Verdict: Passed.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!  Time is ticking on my $250 gift card to Nordstrom giveaway! Enter HERE.  XO
