Top 5 Reasons I Shop at LOFT

Hey Guys!

Today I wanted to talk about the top 5 reasons why I shop at LOFT.  I think if you are in a corporate casual environment for work, you will definitely start moseying on down to shop there too!

I remember when they first opened in 1996, their apparel was a bit outdated and too conservative – almost granny-like (#SorryNotSorry).   Forward to a few years ago and they have completely revamped their look.

So to cut to the chase, here are my top 5 reasons why I shop at LOFT:

  1. Price Point: I rarely see anything over $100 unless it’s a coat or a pair of shoes (if that!). Coupled with their extraordinary sales, you will walk out a happy camper!
  2. Sales: There is never a time when I go into LOFT and there isn’t a great sale going on. Not only on sale items, but they also have full price promotions all the time.
  3. Trends: They always have a classic more conservative twist on current trends which makes it easy to shop without that trend guilt. Most pieces will stand the test of time even with that trendy twist!
  4. Dress Code No-Brainer: most of their pieces are “work-ready”.  So, if you are having a time with dress code, this is the perfect place for you to shop.
  5. Work to Weekend: this is my top reason – although I saved if for last. Their pieces are dressy enough for a corporate casual to corporate environment, in some instances; their clean cut, simple and classic pieces easily transition into the weekend.  This is a win/win for me.  I used to HATE buying two separate wardrobes!

On today’s post I am wearing this ribbed grey dress that I bought 2 years ago!  I literally took the tag off that morning (I am a weird hoarder, I love collecting clothes and wait for the perfect moment to wear them.  This may make me the worst blogger in the world J) .  I just recently started going into the office after working from home for a year and a half, so I am so excited to get dressed up every morning again.

The a-line cut of the dress is flattering to all figures.  This boat neck tends to be more flattering on a slim and/or small busted figure – but this is my personal motto: if I love it, I just frankly don’t give a damn!  You should get on board with that too…unless you look completely hideous (HA HA, I crack myself up!)  If you are totally down with what’s most flattering for you, curvy or larger chested ladies should opt for a scoop or v-neck cut.

Side-note: these Steve Madden heels are SO COMFY.  To say that I am obsessed with Steve Madden is an understatement.   I’ve been wearing his shoes since they came out in the 90s – you know, those hideous Herman Munster platform things…  For your convenience, I made a roundup of all my favorite Steve Madden chunk heel sandals here.

    This is such a cute versatile outfit with it being able to be worn in warmer and cooler weather. I’ve never shopped at Loft, but I have friends who do and are starting to convince me to go. From looking at your reasons, I may have to actually go and see what I find.
