Recent Purchases (and deals)

On Tuesday I took advantage of some of these online sales and ordered a few items from Piperlime and Old Navy, which are already on their way!

From Piperlime, the Tinley Road Devine Bow Tank in Champagne, which I ended up paying $1.28 for since I had a $30 rewards (it’s regularly $39):

I’m going to give colored denim another chance (if you recall, I didn’t fare well earlier in the spring).  A few people I know swear by Old Navy’s Rockstar jeans;  at $34.50, with 35% off and Gapcard rewards, I couldn’t say no to at least trying out some colored pants at $22 each!  The reviews say the sizes are wonky and even vary depending on color!  One reviewer said she’s a size 4 usually and ended up having to buy a size 10.  Thus, I ordered my usual size 6 and just to be same I ordered size 8 and 10 too. Yeop, I ordered 6 pairs of these puppies!

I really wanted the honeycomb (which was out of all sizes on Tues; but of course Wednesday morning, after my order had already shipped, they’re back in stock); but I ended up ordering black and  Monaco Plum.  I’ll post pics and a review once they arrive.  I ordered them all in short, which according to the sizing chart is a 30” inseam.  Usually I’m a 30.5” inseam for pants to wear with flats, so I’m hoping these are going to work out okay…

If they do actually work out, I think I’m going to go a bit crazy and get the Tobiko Orange and Sea Salt, maybe even Green too.  But I think I’m getting my hopes up all together.

I also ordered this V-neck  jersey dress for a whopping $9 in navy and white (which is now sold out).  It has great reviews and I love the nautical and summer look of navy/white with gold accents.

    I just got the email about the sale at Loft today - I'm so excited! I can't wait to see how the colored denim works for you, I can't find any that work for me either.

  2. I know! I think I'm going to stop by after work! I'm also debating stopping into Old Navy to try these Rockstars on in person to see if it's worth ordering more while the 30% off sale is still on today!
