Whether I’m looking for casual cool or extraordinarily chic styles, one of my favorite places to shop is Banana Republic. Admittedly, I am a BR Luxe cardholder because I shop with them that much. I am online or in-store at least once a week, eagerly awaiting new items or playing around with my shopping cart. I still remember the first thing I bought there in high school — a pair of olive green trousers that I kept for 15 years. I only gave them up because I was no longer a size zero. That’s the best thing about Banana Republic. I know I’ll find classic pieces that will last me for years to come. Your money is well spent there. And with fashion to fit most of life’s moments, it’s truly #YourLifeStyled.
#YourLifeStyled: The Perfect Dress
Sometimes when shopping at Banana Republic, I find unexpected items that turn into major fashion moments. When I wore this leopard print maxi to a Christmas party last month, everyone was gushing at how beautiful it looked. I knew it was a special piece when I tried it on. From every angle, it looked amazing on me. The fit was so flattering from the cinched waist to the flowing fabric and the gorgeous graphic animal print. I ordered it in a regular size and I’m normally a petite. So I was surprised to see just how well the length worked for me. Additionally, all 14 of the reviews online were stellar with titles like, “A Knock-Out”, “Winner!”, “Lost for Words”, and “This Dress is EVERYTHING!!!” I knew I had found a gem and I encourage all of you to give this dress a try.
#YourLifeStyled: The Versatile Clutch
Banana Republic truly is a one-stop shop for your fashion needs. I have more jewelry in my case from them than I can count, including a 10-year-old pavé crystal flower ring that still gets mad compliments. I also have several bags from them, including this Large Stripe Zip Pouch. Their handbags are always well crafted. This one is 25% off right now. It’s the perfect addition to my collection because I am a sucker for stripes. Plus it packs a punch with a simple and casual look. Wear it on it’s own as a clutch, or keep it in a larger tote to separate your items. Leave your tote at work, and carry this clutch with you for a night out.
A Lifelong Fan
Most of my friends are equally as enthusiastic about Banana Republic as I am. At least a few of them worked there in college. And I usually happen to run into someone I know in the store. I truly feel at home when I’m shopping there. Let’s just say it’s one of my happy places where everything feels familiar and I know I’ll always find something I love.
