A New Fan of Ann

I have to admit, I've never been a big fan of Ann Taylor...perhaps its because I've always equated the store with starchy button downs, boring pencil skirts and plain ol' slingback pumps. Their look, in my mind, seemed to be that of a girl trying too hard to look too old.

But lately, Ann Taylor and her cool, hip lil' sidekick LOFT have been blowing my mind. I can now call myself a "Fan of Ann."

Just check out these tops, all of which are on my birthday wish list; all of which are perfect for work and play! I'd love to wear any of these with some high-waisted black pants for the office and skinny jeans with slinky over the knee boots and an oversize blazer for play!

From L to R: Silk Blouse With Rolled Sleeves, $88, Animal Print Silk Crepe Shirt with Back Zipper, $29.99 on sale, Oyster Sateen Twist Neck Shirt, $78

In need of accessories to blend with these blouses? Look no further than LOFT's jewelry collection benefiting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I came across some of these designs on L.A. Stylist's Mom's incredible blog and just had to share with you all after I saw the prices and the names of the guest designers! See for yourself!

Needless to say, I'm pretty impressed with the reinvention of Ann Taylor and LOFT and will definitely be shopping there more often.

Is there a brand you think has re-invented itself for the better? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Totally agree with you on the Ann situation! I went into LOFT in Sept and stopped a girl working there, saying "You have a new designer. There are many cool things here. Also thank you for making the sizes more true to reality." She laughed and said yes on both counts, fresh designs and no more "vanity" sizing.
