Happy Birthday Mr. President

Thank you Mr. Presidents.  Because of your service to our country, and subsequent day that celebrates your birthdays, the retail world likes a throw a little discount party in your honor.  And the trend I’m noticing this President’s Day is lots of free shipping.  Perhaps that’s because this isn’t a holiday highly associated with shopping, so retailers have to entice with an extra treat.  LOFT is no exception.  LOFT never offers free shipping.  Well, never say never, because through midnight eastern they are offering free shipping, and you can use code ENJOY30 at checkout for a 30% discount off everything but denim.  The end date for the discount code is TBD, but that free shipping is only valid through the end of day today.  If you’ve had your eye on something at LOFT, now’s the time.  Six picks to follow…


Flutter Sleeve Dress – $55.65 ($79.50)
LOFT Flutter Sleeve Dress

. . .

The tie at the waist is optional on this dress, so it could be worn sheath style.  Unless you’re stick straight through your body though, accentuate those curves.  The flutter sleeves make a fairly plain dress especially feminine.  Pair with the pumps below, and a long or statement necklace.


Petra Floral Print Pumps – $55.65 ($79.50)
Petra Floral Print Pumps

. . .

Very on trend for the season, and can be paired with so many things, ranging from dresses to jeans to capris.  Foot bed is padded cork, which will hopefully take a bit of the pain out of that 4″ heel.  Might not be one to walk around all day in, but they will definitely make a statement at a fun occasion with friends.


Floral Variety Drapey Crepe Blazer – $68.60 ($98)
LOFT Floral Variety Drapey Crepe Blazer

. . .

This vibrant floral blazer is a perfect piece for this spring.  You can wear it with so many garments to create different looks.  Add it to a black and white ensemble for some color.  The blues and corals pair perfect with denim.  You can throw it over a spring dress for warmth when needed.  And don’t be afraid to wear it over a subtly patterned top (think small stripes or dots).


Mini Doily Print Wedge Top – $31.15 ($44.50)
LOFT Mini Doily Print Wedge Top

. . .

Blue and yellow, two springtime staples, come in to play on this black and white wedge top.  This casual girl is just screaming for some backyard BBQ time.  Replace a plain old tee with a top like this for an instant style upgrade.


Rope Stripe Twist Tankini – $34.65 ($49.50) & Bikini Bottom – $27.65 ($39.50)
Rope Stripe Twist Tankini & Bikini Bottom

. . .

How cute is this little stripey gal?  Modestly cut for a more comfortable sun bathing experience.  If you like a more vintage swimsuit look, there is a also a ruffled top and high waisted bottom that utilize the same fabric.  I’ve never purchased swimwear from LOFT, but it seems to be well reviewed.


Marisa Skinny Pants – $48.65 ($69.50)
LOFT Marissa Skinny Pants

. . .

The color of these pants is “neon fuchsia”, and they are a great way to welcome spring back on to the climate carousel.  Skinny, but much more relaxed than some of the ultra skinny pants out there.  These are made of a doubleweave cotton, so you should be able to roll them up capri style if you want to.

Go forth, shop.  Enjoy the fruits of your spoils as our former presidents would have had you do in honor of our country’s freedom.  Makes a compelling reason to buy some shoes, right?  Free shipping from LOFT is only valid through midnight eastern tonight, 2/18/13, so chop chop!
