I am wearing the Silk Raw Edge Shirtdress in Dark Pewter, currently on sale for $79.99, marked down from $130. I sized up from 2, as the top felt a bit too tight. The belt is the Chainlink belt size S and it fits loosely on my waist.
Faux Wrap Shawl Sweater (available here)
Jodhpur Leggings (available here)
Above I am trying on the Faux Wrap Shawl sweater in Mushroom colour. It also comes in Ultra Navy and Light Grey Heather. The sizes are XS to XL (this one is an XS, so you might want to size down). Currently it is priced at $79.50. This sweater reminds me of the J. Crew's Dream Draped V Sweater I blogged about here, except this one is mostly cotton (97%), while the J. Crew one is a wool/nylon/cashmere blend. It is a nice, fun piece, and has a lengthening effect, in my opinion.
And thought I should give the Jodhpur Leggings (in grey colour) a try in the meantime too. Size 2, my usual size in pants, felt tight on my legs and also a bit on the long side as well. I say NO to these leggings for me. They are priced at $79.50.
Another fun piece I tried on was the Cotton Twill Layering cardigan, which comes in Grey Heather and Taupe Heather. Also priced at $79.50, it comes in XS to XL, and it is quite thin.
And above is Banana Republic's version of the corduroy blazer in Castle Grey. It also comes in Fossil Stone. The fabric is not s nice as the one from Eddie Bauer, and about which I blogged here.
Silk Pintuck Shirtdress (similar here)
Above I am wearing the Silk Pintuck Shirtdress in Olive colour and size 2, also on sale for $79.99. I would wear this with a belt as well.
Also tried on the Hidden Placket cardigan in Rust colour and size S. It comes in sizes XS to XL and it is priced at $79.50. Other colours are Sunwashed Taupe, Peach and Anthracite. A mix of wool and cashmere, it feels really soft and has mother-of pearl buttons, which I haven't seen very much lately.
I am wearing this with the Stretch Textured Pencil skirt in my regular size. It also comes in Sunwashed Taupe, and it is priced at $69.50. This skirt felt and fitted great, so I ended up buying it with the 40% coupon I received by e-mail.Stretch Textured Skirt
And this is the Merino V-Neck sweater in Pink Heather and size small. Also comes in sizes XS to XL and the following colours: Bright Berry, Ludlow Bay Blue, Peach, Gray Heather, Cloud Blue, Black and Taupe.It's priced at $59.50.
Here's the Banana Republic description for this jacket: "Never has traditional herringbone looked so timely. With frayed edges, striped lining and a feminine, shorter length, this chic jacket adds a preppy edge to any look." The jacket is priced at $130 and it is a mix of wool/polyester 55/45. It looked and felt nice, but the frayed edges were a bit too much to take.
It seems almost every retailer has a herringbone jacket this fall. Banana Republic had one in the previous roll-out, which I blogged about here, and so did The Gap and Eddie Bauer.
