Visited BR last week and found a few new items I liked. First, I was somehow attracted to this Wool Military jacket ($150), which has the same unfinished edges as the Herringbone Military jacket I blogged about here. It looks really good with the Stretch Wool Pencil skirt I got last month about which I blogged about here, as well as with the Liz Plaid skirt ($79.50) below. The skirt is knitted rather than woven and because of that it is soft instead of rigid. It felt great to have it on.
Detail of the jacket:
Briana jacket ($130) was also another good fitting jacket in glen plaid.
The Military Long Wool coat ($250) was a really nice looking piece (in Camel colour here). It might just be the Camel coat of the season in my opinion. On the website it says it hits at the knee. It hit just above mine.
The Bouclé Zip jacket ($198) was another good looking jacket in the style of the Houndstooth jacket I blogged about here. It seems Banana Republic has had a lot of jackets this fall, and all very well made.
The Double Cable Placket Shrug ($140) in Medium Gray Heather and S. Also comes in Purple Plum and it is a wool/cashmere blend with some other fibers. It felt good wearing it, but I am not sure I would be willing to pay full price for it.
The Ruffle Tie Cardigan ($98) in Heather Charcoal and S. Also comes in black.This cardigan is very thin and light. I loved the V accent and the tie.
The top below is the Ruffle-Front Cap Sleeve shell ($69. 50) is made of silk and was one of the few tops that fitted me so well this year. The skirt is the Jen Tweed Mini skirt and it is a tad on the short side for me ($79.50).

I am waiting for my next Banana Republic coupon to go shopping. The coupons are usually for 30 or 40% off. It shouldn't be too long. I get those by e-mail, so make sure you sign up for them.
