The outlet was jam packed today. Banana Republic is having additional 30% off the entire store. I quickly discovered the tweed dress that got so much love from the petite community on the rack. I picked up a size 0 regular and it was marked down to $39.99 (plus 30% off). What an amazing deal! The smallest size available was a 0P. It was slightly big on me. The tag was $59.99. I thought for sure it was a mistake and didn’t think much about it. I was going to get the 0P anyway and get it altered since the price was too sweet to pass. At the checkout line, I sadly discover that wasn’t a mistake. $20.00 difference isn’t a huge deal but I don’t think I should pay extra for the same dress just because it is petites. In my opinion, petite pieces should cost less because of the shorter length/torso. Hence, less fabric used.
BR is also running a promotion for suiting. Buy 2 (mix and match) for $75.00. The original price is $109.99. I am looking for a white blazer for the upcoming Spring and this one is just perfect. I love the fit and the fabric. I was shamelessly talking my girlfriend into getting one so we can split the cost. I am only interested in the white one since I already had the other color from the last season. She didn’t fall for me. Darn it! I wasn’t in the mood to spend $80.00 for 2 blazers. No white blazer for Sydney today :) I included the tag if anyone is interested.
Here are a few more items that I tried on:
Like: The print is really pretty in person. It’s perfect for Spring and the price is right.
Dislike: It is too short for work and too fancy for the weekend. I can’t see myself wearing this dress more than several times.
Verdict: $25.00 saved!
Like: The print is really pretty. I don’t have anything like this in my closet. The fit is pretty awesome off the rack. The price is incredible!
Verdict: It’s going home with me
I also stopped by J.Crew and Ann Taylor but no luck. That is pretty much my whole Saturday. How’s your weekend going? Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a chance to win a $55.00 gift certificate.
