Sneak Peek – Ann Taylor LOFT Fall 2010

Ann Taylor LOFT had a preview for their Fall 2010 collection at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood last week, so you can image how excited I was when they extended an invite to little ol’ me. And then how terrified I was at the thought of attending my first ever “fashion event”.

The geek that I am, I dressed in my favorite Ann Taylor LOFT outfit, brought my gigantic DSLR camera, little point-and-shoot, and tried my best to pretend like I wasn’t completely lost or clueless. While waiting in the valet line at the Chateau Marmont, I watched all these well dressed young women step out of cars…with no gigantic cameras in sight. So, again, I’m a geek, and chickened out at the last minute about bringing my nice DSLR camera inside. Poor decision! There were so many great photo ops inside that I was kicking myself for not bringing it.

Luckily, my little point-and-shoot still took some nice photos of the tweed heavy (yay!) upcoming Fall collection:

Tweed!!!

More tweed + nautical stripes!!

Furry vests were another theme of the collection

More tweed & furry vests

More nautical stripes

The crowd at the LOFT event:

I have no idea how I missed this tweed lovely (it has my name written all over it…). Luckily Racked LA took a photo:

Fall is my all time favorite fashion season, so I was really excited to get a little sneak peak at what’s coming. I will of course have to try the tweed skirts, and even though I’ve had bad luck with LOFT jackets in the past, I’m sure I’ll try those tweed jackets as well (I just can’t help myself!). I’ll be passing on the furry vest though. =P
I also got inside info from LOFT that they are expanding their petite selections, and that the Fall collection will have more petite options than ever before! Yippee!

Also, a big “thank you” to the lovely TV Guide ladies who chatted me up and let me hang out, so I didn’t look like a total loser in the corner all by myself. =)

Oh yeah, almost forgot…goodie bag!!!

Too bad the cuff is GIGANTIC! Behold as it slides right off my hand without any resistance:

What do you ladies think of the necklace? Who’d be interested in a giveaway?

This is just a portion of what LOFT has coming for Fall…what do you think so far?

    I have been following your blog for a while. Thanks for all your hard work postings all these wonderful info for petite fellows.

    Your first fashion show experience seemed fun! I guess horizontal stripes will be a trend this fall (not sure I like stripes that much thought). Good to know they are going to offer more petite options..I haven't shopped at LOFT in years!

    How exciting! Thanks so much for sharing these pics from the event. You know I'm a sucker for tweed as well and that jacket plus the skirt are definitely on my list for Fall now. I'm extremely curious about the skirt now …can't make out the exact cut and details.

    Thank you so much for sharing. I'm so excited that LOFT will expand their petite selections for their fall collection. Looking forward to that. I better start saving money for the new purchases :).

    This is so cool! You are so lucky you got to go to this event! The pics you took were great! I am very excited for all this tweed- love it!!!

    And yes please do a giveaway!!! :)

  • PetiteXXS says:

    Wow this is great! I would've been so nervous going to such a "fashion event"… I probably wouldn't have known what to wear! Thanks for posting about your experience so we can live vicariously through you :)

    I love all the tweed too, especially the skirt. I really wanted to get the tweed skirt BR had a while back but they were out in my size. The jackets are probably going to be too big but I can definitely see how that last one has your name written all over it!

    Thanks for sharing the LOFT photos…I'm loving the tweed too but I haven't found anything for me yet.

    Awesome that you went to first fashion event experience! =)

  • diaryofashopper says:

    Fun! I would have been so intimidated. I love all the tweed! Your pictures turned out nice in spite of the camera! :)

  • PetiteLittleGirl says:

    That's so fun! I don't have any tweed in my closet. I can't wait to check them out this Fall.

    I like the tweed but otherwise most of the clothes don't look business like enough for my needs- Noticed that trend across the typical petite friendly chains this summer and hoped it was just a summer thing- maybe they are all moving towards more casual stuff. If so bummer for ladies who have to dress up for work appropriately, daily.

  • Alterations Needed says:

    Anonymous – Very true, there were only casual clothes modeled there that night. It's only a portion of the full Fall collection, so hopefully there will be some nice suiting too. Fall suiting is always the best anyways. =)

  • Love 'n Salt says:

    I love the tweed jacket! I've been on the hunt for one since earlier this year, but they all seem to overpower my frame.

  • Chloe says:

    Great pics! Love, love, love that tweed jacket. *grabs*

  • BurberryLvr from tPF says:

    Thanks for posting all the pics! I *love* nautical stripes! And I (in a super dorky way) shrieked when I recognized one of the models from Project Runway – girl in fedora :D

  • Alterations Needed says:

    Hi BurberryLvr! Ahh…so that's where I recognized her from! I only catch a few episodes here and there, so I'm bad with the names and faces of the ANTM girls. There was another one there too, but I didn't get a picture of her. Good to know those girls are getting work. =)

  • Miss. Studios says:

    Hey AN,

    This bold in the goodie bag was one of my favorite pieces of jewely from Ann Taylor. Do you get to wear it a lot?
    I missed the petite challenge. I thought I was following you on google but obviously not. Next time for sure!
