Have any of you ever not shopped at a place for years and years…only to re-discover it down the line, and happily end up discovering a lot of new items?
This has happened to me a few times before. It happens every few seasons years or so with Chanel (which is about as often as I can afford to buy the clothes). It also happened with Saks…which I was refused to shop at for years due to weird service and strange policies, but which I really feel has gotten it together lately.
Recently, and on a slightly less expensive front, it’s happened with the chain store LOFT. I wandered in earlier in my pregnancy, because I had been told they had a dedicated maternity section and lots of coupon codes. I started out with one dress…and then found myself returning back for more. And even picking out a few more dresses, for after maternity. And eyeing some shorts, and beach wear as well.
In short – LOFT has a lot of really cute items right now! I love the dresses, and I always get compliments on the items I have from them. Plus, even full price, items rarely exceed $100. And, there’s usually a generous (as in 40% off or more) coupon code to be found. All the dresses and prices above, are the full price by the way, and yes there’s a 40% off code right now.
Oh, and the online store usually has a bunch of petite items too. Which means the maxi dresses usually fit me in petite, no alterations. Perfection!
So yes…I’m definitely experiencing a shopping renaissance with LOFT. Before I went in a few months ago, I hadn’t bought and kept anything successfully for probably years. But now, I seem to find hit after hit. And, everything is a really nice, affordable price.
