Banana Republic Faves

Years ago, I used to work at Banana Republic in one of their massive, 2-story flagship stores. I started working there during holiday season and the store was busy every single day. On certain days, like Black Friday (after Thanksgiving), we had so many customers that you couldn't walk without hitting somebody or having to elbow and shove your way through the crowd. It was ridiculous. But I can understand why BR has so many loyal customers. Time and again, they come up with great pieces that are versatile, affordable, and trendy. Yes, they also offer plenty of your everyday, humdrum work basics (plain turtlenecks, tank tops, cardigans) but if you browse through the racks or on their online store, there's pretty much something for everyone. I've even scored great accessories (mostly big earrings, which I'm a huge fan of) from BR.

Here are some of my favorite picks from their latest season:

Long-sleeve cashmere argyle crewneck, $168

Cashmere T-shirt dress, $158

Jersey tunic dress, $98

Luxe peacoat, $198

Long-sleeve shawl collar cardigan, $108

Mmm, lots of cashmere, warm sweater dresses, and chic fall style! And to make it all better, use Banana Republic coupon code BRGLAM15 at checkout to save $15 off orders of $100 or more. Hurry, because the code expires on 11/30/2007.
