It may be hard to believe but it’s been one year since our first Sunday Showcase debuted. The Sunday Showcase is the brain child of Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood. and goes live the first Sunday of the month! Chrissy of Granola & Grace and I are the co-hosts and this month we are joined by the fabulous Shelbee from Shelbee on the Edge.
I thought I’d share a few items I recently ordered from Loft. I had a couple of hits and a miss! Awhile back I mentioned wanting a new leopard cardigan – in fact, I ordered it and they left it out of my order! As luck would have it it was sold out. A little creative thinking led me to order this (plus) – guess what? I think it will work better for me. It’s lightweight and looks terrific layered. I wore it on Friday in this post. I had a an awards luncheon to attend for work and wore it all day!
The next item may have been a mistake. The poncho I shared here I ended up returning. I wasn’t crazy about the fabric and didn’t think I’d get much use out of it. I spotted this one (similar) and thought it would be better. It is from the Lou & Grey line and is sooooooo soft. I tried it on in store and thought it might be more versatile than the other one. Of course now I’m not so sure. It’s been pretty warm here and that is part of the problem I think.
Next time I’ll try it with denim – it might be just a little too short this way!
On Wednesday I raved about my chambray tie blouse. It will look great dressed up or down and I even like it untied.
Finally the piece that disappointed me most. I had high hopes for this dress (plus). I want a black maxi dress that I can wear a regular bra with – gosh I thought I found it!It’s actually from the Loft Beach Line so it is on the thin side. That’s not the problem for me. The problem is the elastic waist. It just doesn’t work on me. It was worth a try!
So, the hunt continues! By the way today is I Want You To Be Happy Day – did you know such a day existed? I had no idea but thanks to the Queen of Kindness, Shelbee – now I do! Of course I want you to be happy so I hope you enjoyed my post and you’ll check out the other ladies posts as well. Link up with us and check out the other blogs too!Inlinkz Link Party
