While shopping for bridal jewelry (without much success, I might add) my “man of honor” and I popped into Banana Republic to check out their clearance sale. I have a love hate relationship with BR simply because I don’t often feel like their quality is high enough to match their prices. That said, they pretty much always have 40% off if you play your cards right, so if you find a piece you love, like I did with this dress, it can still be worth it.
As soon as I saw this dress on the mannequin I was in love with it. I’ve been needing to replace a similarly colored sweater dress from Loft that has shrunk so much in the wash in the last few year that I can no longer wear it to work. I love how edgy this dress is. The fit is just long enough to embrace the midi trend (and when that trend inevitably dies I can easily have it hemmed) and the stitching up the sides and back make the whole thing look sleek. Sadly, I couldn’t find it online. But I purchased it relatively recently–if you like it, I bet you could still find it in store.
