This weekend has some great sales, most continuing through Monday, so you still have some time to take advantage. J. Crew Factory is having 50% off all items, Banana Republic featuring an extra 50% off sale styles, Ann Taylor has 50% off, and has Loft 40% off full priced items (60% off sale). Banana Republic Factory Stores have 50% Off everything, and if you use your Banana Card, you receive 60% off. Here are some of the things I tried on at Banana Republic Factory. (If you have an outlet location near you, stop in. There are more things in store than what is shown online).
This skirt was comfortable and lined. I am wearing a 0P in this picture, and really needed a 00P since it was more loose than what I like for a pencil skirt. I passed on it, but am now thinking of picking it up tomorrow and getting altered. The blouse is beautiful and the ruffle on the sleeve detail give it some additional “ump”. I passed on it as well, since it was larger and sleeves longer than what I want.
I am always looking for sweaters that do not have wool, etc. These do not and are very comfortable. Blue Sweater is not Petite, but fit was appropriate. In addition to the color, the neckline is unique. This one went home with me. Scallop Sweater in Coral is a beautiful color and scallop detail at the bottom is an interesting addition (available in multiple colors). The Gray Ruffle Sweater was not petite, but I tried it just in case. The sleeve are too long (rolled slightly in this picture).
Debated on this one the most. It has all of the qualities I love – soft, little military inspo, and classic. I always hesitate for anything that has a larger cut around the waste and did not purchase. Did I make a mistake? This is also available in gray.
