My Favorite Pieces from Banana Republic

Sep 12, 2022

Last year, I bought a blazer from Banana Republic.  It was so good, I bought it in every color.  And while some of their summer styles weren’t for me (I was spending my holiday on a yacht anchored near the Dalmatian Coast), their fall wares are a different story.  Here are my favorite pieces from their latest line.

The pleating on the bodice of this Stella Sheath is sublime.  It would look so chic under a blazer.  It’s absolutely perfect for the office.  And the black dress is the perfect day-to-night option.

I can’t decide if I like the emerald green suit or the mustard yellow suit best, but one of these is coming home with me.  They’re both so cool and fashion forward, and yet, totally wearable.

Whether you’re in the office or at home, the Signature Tuxedo Shirt is a must for any wardrobe.  It looks amazing with denim, with work separates, or grab the tunic-length version to wear with leggings at home.  And since it comes in tall and petite, you can find the perfect length.

This Netta Ribbed Wrap Dress is on high on my wishlist for fall.  I will probably buy it in both colors.  Sadly, BR does not have the belt for sale (which seems like a mistake), but I found this similar one.

These Lorca boots are epic.  I didn’t think I would like the wood heel on the bottom of a black boot, but the more I look at it, the more I realize that it works.  It makes them a little cooler, a hair more casual, but still amazing.

    Abra, how are you doing? I love your fashion, but I’m more concerned about your health.

    • Emily says:

      I came here to say the same thing. I love reading the fashion updates but totally understand if you take maternity leave from the blog especially considering everything – hope you’re recovering well and that your baby girl is getting better as well.

        Third. I don’t even know you personally, but have been a reader for a decade and was thinking of you and Sloane this weekend. I hope you’re both safely recovering.

        • Jenn S. says:

          Fourth! I’m happy to see content because I hope it means you’re doing alright and that Sloane is better.

          Love the dresses – but yes, definitely more concerned for you!

    • Laura says:

      Fifth-ing the sentiment, and seconding that I like to see you posting because I hope things are okay.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
