Last night we had the chance to check out the new LOFT collection from Ann Taylor. Part of the "misses" revival effort, their aim is to give women affordable clothing options that still live up to high fashion standards. LOFT, the younger and more casual branch of Ann Taylor, wants shoppers "to get a month's worth of wardrobe options with a minimal investment" and so started with "one perfect pair of jeans" and went on from there. Our favorite pieces in the Fall 2009 collection were the suede bomber ($129) and the mid calf boot ($149). Check out our images from the preview along with runway stills in the gallery below.
Don't worry, we don't need to stage an intervention about the dangers of matchy-matchydom: Saturday was White Linen Night in the Warehouse District in New Orleans, and Mr. and Mrs. syako were just having fun participating!
Here's what she has on:
- Top: Karlie
- Pants: Ann Taylor Loft
- Shoes: Ann Taylor Loft
- Bag: Target
Congrats to syako!

The clutch has been reborn (wahoo!). While I've preferred these little vintage-inspired handbags for years, they are the perfect bag for a dinner date, this Spring's offerings of handbags will be a battle of opposites. You'll have your dainty clutches and your biggie hold all shoulder bags. For when you're going to the fro yo place around the corner and just need a twenty, lip gloss and your Blackberry, a day clutch is the perfect accessory. Need I remind, this was Carrie Bradshaw's bag of choice? Here are a few irresistible ones to get you psyched for warm weather.
