It was a great Mail Day today, I received my recent Banana Republic online orders (previously discusssed here) and I really love the three items I purchased. Oh, and it’s an additional 50% off all sale items now at Banana Republic. As mentioned in my earlier post, Banana Republic had an additional 40% off sale items, but when they increased the discount to 50%, I reordered the maxi dress and ordered the shoes and top as well.
I’m wearing my usual size of XS and it’s definitely true to size. The overall execution of this dress exceeds my expectations so I am thrilled. It’s lined throughout (except for the sleeves), has pockets and the length is simply perfect for me (no alterations needed, woot). The elastic waistband is very comfortable, which is a small miracle because I’m 7.5 months pregnant and this is not a maternity dress. I am so pleased that I ordered this maxi dress! If they still have your size available, definitely buy it.
I also love the 3-strap flats and they are true to size. Another must have at $50 a pair for leather shoes. I’ve been a longtime fan of the lace-up flats but I get annoyed by the lace-up straps constantly falling down on me. This multi-strap iteration is just as edgy and stylish, but without the fuss (there’s easy access with a back zipper) and annoyance. I was so impressed by the look and comfort of these flats, I just ordered another pair in silver leather.
I hope the wrap top is still available because it’s going to be amazing for nursing. There is a tiny snap to secure the wrap neckline. The lightweight sweater material drapes beautifully and is quite flattering. I bought this top in burgundy in a size Small (one larger than my usual XS) since it was the only size available at the time, and it’s a loose yet doable fit. I just ordered this top in grey in size XS (again, the only available size online).
Have you been shopping the winter clearance sales? Any must-haves you’d like to share?
TGIF, enjoy your weekend! xx
