Hi Guys, I'd like to send a congratulations to Lisa at Respect the Shoes. Lisa recently published her 200th post (no small feat) and in celebration she is hosting an Anthropologie "Grandma's Treasure Trove Necklace" giveaway. Please stop by Lisa's Blog (here) and sign up for a chance to win this beautiful necklace.
Speaking of 200 posts, I'll never make it to mine unless I get started, so here we go. I don't know if you guys caught the Ann Taylor Loft Fall Sneak Peak that An at Alterations Needed posted in June, but it was sooo great. I fell so hard for the Floral Ruffle Front Halter paired with the Nautical Stripped Cardi and Tweed skirt outfit that I couldn't stand it.
So I waited patiently for the clothing to make their appearance to the racks.........and nothing. Finally, the Floral Ruffle Front Halter was introduced, but just in simple solid colors not florals. Well this blouse was still adorable, but was certainly not all that I had hoped for, for sure! I can't tell you the excitement I felt when I finally spotted this baby online in August (at the unaffordable price of $54.50). Thank you Loft for giving us the buy one get one half price deal.
Unfortunately, the cardi never made it to Loft petites in my chosen colors of blue and cream stripes, so I was forced to buy it in an XXS Regular. I know the fit is not ideal, but unless you see the petite sized cardi on me I don't think you'd realize how big this one really is.
Another bit of sad news: I have asked several associates at different stores and even called customer service at the Loft and it looks like that adorable tweed jacket featured in the pictures of An's Fall Sneak Peak will not be coming in petite sizes either :( If you guys here otherwise or see it in the stores, please let me know... It is so chic!
This blouse was also reviewed by Jean at Extra Petite (here) and Liane at Petite XXS (here). If I missed one of you guys that reviewed this top as well, just e-mail me, I'd love to add that link in too.
