Today I have some quick reviews for you! My textured open jacket finally arrived! If you need some black ankle pants that make you look slim and jeans that don’t require any alterations, then this post is for you. Okay so let’s get started!
I ordered this jacket as soon as it came out online but was only available in regular sizes. Then my order got cancelled even though the inventory showed it was still in stock. I was furious and hate when this happens! It happened for a reason because petite sizes became available shortly after and I was able to score it for 50% off (see fitting room post HERE)!
Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing 00P. The fit is a bit boxy but if you plan on layering then it should be fine. The sleeves are supposed to be 3/4″ but it’s bracelet length on me (which I love). The material is blend of cotton and polyester and very soft. I have a feeling the sleeves will wrinkle throughout the day since the material is 74% cotton. I was disappointed the jacket is unlined (even though it says online that it is). It’s more of a blazer than a jacket but it works great for me in Southern Cali. I knew I would love it and it did not disappoint! Would definitely recommend!
Okay remember I posted these ankle pants on Snapchat? After taking some more photos with them, I realized they were a bit too short and the regular sizes were too big in the waist. So I ordered these ponte skinny ankle pants to try and LOVE THEM! These are amazing and seriously make you look slim and tall. I need all the help I can get postpartum. Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing 0p. They fit like a glove however the hem is still 1″ too long for me. I have them cuffed up in the photo. I love the the sleek and skinny cut. They make your butt look good too (lol). The only downside is the exposed size zipper (ugh). I’m glad they added back welt pockets to make them look dressier. I don’t want them mistaken for leggings. Love and would highly recommend!
It seems like I’m always on the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans. I’m not the same size as I used to be and my old jeans are a wee bit too tight in the waist. I want to be able to breathe and not suffocate in my jeans so I’ve been trying on countless pairs lately. I tried on these distressed jeans the other week (see review post HERE) and really liked how they fit but they were regular length which is what led me to order these petite ankle jeans. This is my first pair of Banana Republic denim jeans and I really like them! I love the wash and fit. Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing 25p. The inseam measures 26″ which is slightly too long for me but I’m thinking they will shrink a little in the dryer. You’ll have to cuff them up once to wear with ankle booties but can be worn with pumps un-cuffed.
Here’s how the Loft modern skinny ankle jeans fit on me. The inseam is 1″ shorter than Banana Republic’s (25″) and the length is perfect for someone my height (5′ tall). I have several pairs of Loft modern jeans but none that are ankle length. Sizing runs true to size and fits really nicely. They don’t have much stretch but I think this will change after a few washes. I loved them so much I ordered the black pair too! It’s so hard to find jeans that fit right and also don’t require cuffing. Love and would recommend!
Here is a side by side comparison of both pairs. It’s hard to tell but the washes are different (see better pic below). I like Banana Republic’s wash better but I like the length of Loft’s jeans. They both fit similar however BR’s has a little more stretch to them and the denim seems to be of higher quality. I can’t decide which one I like better. I got both for 40% off so I may end up keeping them.
I’m loving this scallop colorblock dress so much! Sizing runs small and size XS is petite friendly. I love the scallop hem – so cute. Yes I’m scalloped obsessed! This is the dress I posted this on my IG stories/Snapchat and everyone went bananas over. The knee length is perfect and it can be worn to work or on the weekends. I plan on wearing it with my cropped cardigan for Fall. It’s so cute and I would recommend!
Which jeans do you like better?
