Hello petite blogger community! Who knew such a world existed? I surely didn't, up until this past Spring. An innocent Google search for petite inspirations brought me to a petite blog, then much to my excitement, a whole community! others who understand my pain! Now I have at least a dozen or so bookmarks, all inspiring me while I stand in my closet every morning wondering what in the world I should wear today. And let me take a moment to thank all the wonderful bloggers who inspire me to look my best!
Sydney was gracious enough to invite me to be a guest blogger. I had a great time meeting her during her visit to DC. It was during this visit that I stumbled upon this adorable purple military coat. Continuing my obsession for purple (and my deep sadness for not having the opportunity to afford J.Crew's Double Cloth Lady Day Coat
I instantly felt an attraction. I tried on the 0P... YAY! But paying the full-price of $188? Sad face. As Sydney commented on the perfect fit, she checked the tag (80% wool), she even agreed it was a great find! But wait for a discount. Lo and behold, by the following week, I sign onto my email on a Monday morning and there is a 30% off all new items, free shipping email sitting right in my box (blast!). My prayers have been answered! By the next day, I head to the nearest Loft, pick up the 0P as well as the 00P, in addition to about 10 other sale items =) and head to the dressing room. I thought the 0P was perfect, but the 00P fit like a glove.
Coat: LOFT Petite Military Melton Coat (buy it here)
I really liked the military details and buttons, but most importantly the purple color. I was sad to see that this coat was $75 for a one-day sale yesterday (I bought the coat 2 weeks ago and Loft only does price adjustments for purchases made within the past 7 days), but at least I didn't pay full price! I hope many of you were able to take advantage of the $75 sale yesterday!
Thanks Soo for being a guest on my blog. I really enjoyed reading this post. I took advantage of the sale and got the exact same coat in 00P for $75.00 (originally
$188.00). The store manager was kind enough to order it for me with free shipping. I will share once it arrived. Have a great week, everyone!
