A trip to the Gap last week also included one to Banana Republic, since they are both in the same mall. Just like the Gap, this particular store is always very picked over once new arrivals are in the store. I managed to find a few dresses worthy of a second look, in my opinion. The first one is the Cowlneck Matte Jersey Dress size S and 'Mediterranean blue.' Comes in 2 other colours as well. This dress reminds me a lot of the Anthro's Given Then Gathered Column Dress I reviewed here. It fits TTS and feels very airy on. I also loved the longer length (I am 5'6").
Next was the Cap Sleeve Ponte Knit Dress size 4 and 'lava' colour. This is my regular dress size at Banana Republic. The knit is substantial and feels comfortable on, but I'm not crazy about the fabric content. I didn't notice this in the store. All in all, it's a cute summer dress.
And the black version of the same dress:
Other pretty dresses I've noticed on the website:
Luxe striped t-shirt dress
Edith v-neck dress
BR monogram crepe sheath
Cap sleeve ponte knit dress
Havana linen-cotton halter dress
Zigzag lace sheath
I also tried on a couple of tops. The first one was the Allover Lace Tee in size S and 'merlot' colour. The 'merlot' is actually a purple colour (which shows blue on my monitor). It has a concealed side zipper, which I noticed after I pulled the top over my head. I guess it's not really needed then.
I'm still attracted to this necklace, for some reason. The pearls I was also drooling over earlier are also on sale. With the 40% off sale going on right now, these are a total bargain. Use code BRSTARS at checkout through the end of today.
Are you going to take advantage of the super sale at BR today? What did you get? Please share!
Hope you are having a great Independence Day celebration in the U.S!
