Too Late Marimekko…

Banana Republic & Marimekko Polka Dot Dress #bananarepublic #shopping, banana republic, Banana Republic & Marimekko, Marimekko Well guess who overslept and woke up at a 7:00 a.m. to try to snag that gorgeous Marimekko skirt from Banana Republic, only to find out that the sale was open to card holders (which I’m one) 2 days early, and that it was the first item to go!!!!  This is what happens when you have too many things going on at the same time!! I need an assistant… Stat!

I was able to snag the strapless dress, which if I like it, will become my Saturday running errands dress.  For all of you who were able to grab the skirt… Congrats!!  I do have several skirts in the same style as the Marimekko skirt, so I’m not too crushed about it.  Apparently it’s also in stores, but I really don’t have time to run around looking for it.

Banana Republic, Marimekko & Me…

Banana Republic & Marimekko

Well Darlings, I for one, cannot wait for the release of the limited edition capsule collection from Banana Republic and Marimekko.  Now this is a collaboration I can work with.  I will have my Banana card at the ready, especially for the skirt above.  I love a full midi skirt with side pockets, which is always a classic and timeless look.

Marimekko’s signature bold prints have graced clothes, fabrics, furniture, and tableware; and now Banana Republic has collaborated with the Finland based brand to come up with what in my opinion, will be a sell out collection {especially that skirt!}.

The two looks below are also on my radar, I’m loving  those cropped pants!!

Set your smart phone/tablet a few days ahead, to remind you, the collection debuts in select stores and online May 22.

Trina At Banana Republic…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on June 8, 2012 at 1:03 pm

The Trina Turk capsule collection for Banana Republic, which was released yesterday, is in my opinion very Miami. Swirls of pinks, purples, blues, greens, and oranges. This colourful collection makes you want to sit fly out to the Caribbean to a swanky hotel and sit in a lounge chair by the infinity pool, while you sip delicately on a Pimms cocktail. Now wouldn’t that be lovely!

My favourites from the collection are a short strapless dress and a one shoulder number, going for approximately $150 and $130 respectively.

Love the one shoulder dress!

Love this dress!

This collection will probably go quickly, so mosey on over to www.bananarepublic.com to buy your little piece of vacation paradise.

Let’s Wiggle…

Those of you who know me, know that I am a huge Mad Men fan (See my January 17 post); therefore, you already know I watch it mostly for the clothes.  Dressing was an art back then, where women looked truly feminine.  I’ve just received a flyer from Banana Republic who have jumped on the Mad Men wagon and designed a line around the show.  This is their second “Mad Men” collection.  My favourite is the “Joan dress“, which is the cream and bold floral print dresses seen below, I’ve ordered the print.  Remember ladies its bold prints for 2012.  For those of you who watch the show;  you know Joan is a true bombshell, probably a US 10/12 with her red hair and Jessica Rabbit curves to match. The  Joan Holloway character with her sultry style can truly wear a wiggle dress, she’s a woman who would still turn heads today. 

The new season starts March 25, on AMC
