Summer Looks from Ann Taylor Loft
I'm always amazed at the press kits companies put together. LL Bean once sent the cutest, purple toddler shoe. Another company — can't remember which — sent a single, gold Converse shoe. I use it on my desk as a tissue dispenser.
Ann Taylor Loft puts out hardcover lookbooks. Simple, elegant, to-the-point. Sums up its approach to summer 2011, too. The catalog features pretty, chunky statement necklaces, watercolorish florals, simple cotton blouses and tasteful animal prints.
Here are a few — and only a few — looks because I am an idiot and had technical difficulties with the photo uploading, downloading, scanning (hence the headless body):
•Nautical Girl graphic tee ($34.50); eyelet pencil skirt ($69.50); turquoise and stone bib necklace ($74.50); metallic webbed belt ($29.50); espadrille ($69.50)
•Sailor canvas jacket ($79.50); watercolor floral shift dress ($79.50); three-row diamante tie bracelet ($19.50); large clear stretch beaded bracelet ($12.50); sequin espadrille ($69.50)
You could put together a pretty swanky summer wardrobe if you won one of the $1,000 gift cards available each week this month if you like Loft on Facebook.
