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

…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 to be so proactive, I even set an alarm on my cell phone to remind me of the official start of the sale, promptly at 9:01pm PT, so I could snag the sizes I wanted. 9:01pm came, and I happily sat with my laptop, wallet by my side,…

Banana Republic Mad Men Launch Party

…he two worlds collide, I’m there! Thursday marked the launch of the spring Banana Republic Mad Men Collection, and I was honored to receive an invite to their Los Angeles celebratory launch party. The party actually started in NYC, when a group of bloggers, models, and Banana Republic peeps boarded a plane headed to Los Angeles. I kept seeing photos in my Instagram feed of an in-flight fashion show taking place on board the plane, and thought…”tha…

Fit Review Friday – Banana Republic Petite Fall Arrivals

…or comparison here. First up…the double-breasted long vest: Also in black: Banana Republic Petite Double-Breasted Long Vest // Size Petite 00 $110 This vest is one of the reasons I’m excited for Marissa Webb at the helm of Banana Republic. A very similar style is available through her namesake line, but at Banana Republic, petite sizing can be had! While I don’t think this particular piece is for me, I’m glad it’s here and available in petites. I…

Fit Review Friday – Mango Drapey Trench vs. Banana Republic Petite

…Mango Flowy Trench // Size xxs on sale $99.99 High off my success with the Banana Republic petite drapey trench, I tried my luck with this pretty soft grey version from Mango. Since draped trenches are meant to have that slightly oversized, relaxed fit, I hoped I’d be able to it pull off. The good news…the color is really pretty and I would love to add something in this soft grey to my wardrobe. The bad news…the sizing is just too oversized on my…

Review: Banana Republic Logan Fit Pants in Size 00P

…ways 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 low rise and straight fit in the leg and thigh, I was eager to give them a shot considering none of the other fits work for me. Here is the “Logan” in size 00P: Banana Republic Logan Fit Pants Holy smokes! What bad fit! Appare…

Zazzy Zebra – Trina Turk for Banana Republic

…then flares out for a comfortable and easy silhouette. I love the idea of Banana Republic doing designer collaborations, and here’s why. Usually, designers partner with big fast fashion or discount chains (like H&M or Target), and produce sub-par versions of their collections that really don’t interest me in quality or design (although I did like the Missoni for Target collection). Part of the appeal of these designers are their quality, and…

…ked my spirits back up. So, without further ado, here are my new BR items: Banana Republic Petite Italian Merino Cardigan, $69.50 I loooove sweaters, I wear one almost every day. Even in the summer (I’ve been known to wear sweaters in both Hawaii, and Costa Rica…both very hot, humid places…) because I’m always cold…or will quickly get cold once I enter a very air conditioned place. This one caught my eye because I loved the maroon color, and I tho…

In Memoriam: Banana Republic Petite Size 000

…ile 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, especially in any o…

Summer 2009: Banana Republic Petite XXS

…particular taste, but I got a gem or two in there as well. First…the good… Banana Republic Short-Sleeve Twist-Detail Top in Petite XXS, $49 70% rayon, 30% lyocell Banana Republic Linen Blend Ruffle Top in Petite XXS, $59 56% linen, 44% viscose The fit on both these tops were great.
