Adventures in Online Shopping: Banana Republic Operates Like a Banana Republic

Banana Republic :  … a country that is politically unstable, dependent on limited agriculture (e.g. bananas), and ruled by a small, self-elected, wealthy, and corrupt clique. ( Wikipedia ) Okay, so maybe they’re not that bad, but they did upset me this weekend… In my post last Friday, I mentioned a Banana Republic 40% off sale for card holders, and linked to the two items I had my eye on, and planned to buy with the discount code. I was going…

Banana Republic Mad Men Launch Party

Everyone was ohhing & ahhing over the pink cigarette pants As one of the few stylish brands that carries petite sizes, Banana Republic has made a solid place for itself in my wardrobe.

Thursday marked the launch of the spring Banana Republic Mad Men…

Review: Banana Republic Logan Fit Pants in Size 00P

and a few other goodies… Ever since Banana Republic did away with the Ryan fit, I haven’t had much luck with their dress pants. Too bad too because I always find cute fabrics and cuts that I really like, but the rise is always too high on me, and the fit in the front is always creased and baggy. Banana Republic recently came out with a few new pant fits, the most intriguing of which was the “Logan”. Advertised as their new “modern fit” with a…

Zazzy Zebra – Trina Turk for Banana Republic

Pockets on skirts and dresses are seriously one of my favorite things in the world. I’m hard to please when it comes to…

Brand that Sometimes Runs Small: Banana Republic Petites

My closet would be in a sad state if it weren’t for the Banana Republic Petites line. While not everything works, I find a few gems here and there. The BR aesthetic is pretty close to my person style, so it has been a great resource for me. The petite XS and petite 00 items either fit just right, or seem to be about 1 size too big. Here is a rundown of what the fit has been for me so far: Tops/Blouses: I put the tops in 3 categories: silky,…

What better way to spend a holiday weekend than by hitting up the local outlet mall? As I mentioned in the weekend guide, there were a few good sales to be had, so I dragged the boyfriend and Clinton to the local outlet mall.

In Memoriam: Banana Republic Petite Size 000

I reported a while back on size petite 000 showing up on the Banana Republic Fit Guide on bananarepublic.com, as did Cynthia over at Shorty Stories, but never saw any size 000 materialize on the website (I was checking religiously). I had my fingers crossed because Banana Republic has great work separates and suiting, and the idea of tiny dress pants had me VERY excited.  For the record, Banana Republic size 00 petite is still a bit big on me,…

Summer 2009: Banana Republic Petite XXS

B anana Republic added some new merchandise for their summer collection in size petite XXS recently, and there were a few items I was interested in trying out. So, I put in an order of items in a few different cuts and fabrics, got free shipping for using my Banana Card (free shipping on orders of $100 or more), and had a little BR fashion show. Most of the items are going back, just because they’re not my particular taste, but I got a gem or…
