Wardrobe Update: Ann Taylor Loft Business Casual

Well, I went to the mall. I brought Todd along for emotional support. I decided to hit up the one store from Tuesday night where I'd actually found some things to try on: Ann Taylor Loft. I started out with the sweater set type thing, but I found that when they come down over my hips, I just look boxy/big hipped. Tucking things in is usually bad for me. So, I was opting not to. Also, their "Ann" Cut pants were too tight on me in the hips and thighs, but when I went to a bigger size, they were too big and just HUNG there. I tried on the "Julia" cut with much better success.

If you go to Ann Taylor Loft in the Columbia Mall, ask for Doreen to help you. She was WONDERFUL. Over the course of 2 hours, she had me try on all of these outfits. I was looking in the mirror, she was switching what size she was putting me in (the skirt I got is a 10, which shocked the pants off of me), and helping me choose jewelry, shoes, etc. Todd stood around for the full 2 hours, giving his opinion and picking things out with Doreen. It really was like What Not to Wear. It was awsome. And I got what I needed. Let's see...

Outfit #1

Lovely black & lace dot skirt.

I think this is it, but it might not be. Scoop neck sweater in black.

I had trouble with this outfit because the skirt needed to be smaller than expected and the sweater needed to be smaller than expected and tucked in to get the best effect. However, I think that the end result is a good one. I'll be wearing this with sheer black stockings and black pumps.

Outfit #2:

Dot print layered cardigan

Julie fit Wide Leg pant (in mocha)

This is what I'm wearing today - with the same black pumps & stockings. It works, I think. This cardigan had to be in SMALL, which is weird, but I have a small waist, I guess.

Outfit #3:

Julie wide leg Cuffed pant in Black

Button Up Shirt in White

I don't know if this is the one I got or not, but it's basically a white button down shirt. Very nice, simple look that I kind of already had, but this is higher quality and new. So, better.

Black Pumps

Yeah, easy spirits aren't really sexy, but they're comfy for basic shoes that I will wear a lot. I've always liked them.

Black and neutral necklace.

I got another necklace, too, but I couldn't remember which one.

That's it! A successful trip to the mall! Todd is awesome for coming and helping me out, btw. ;)
