Banana Goes Mad

Call me crazy, but am I the only one who thinks that Banana Republic has gone way downhill lately? I visited a few weeks ago with my mom, and even with a 40% off coupon burning a hole in our pocket, we couldn't manage to buy a single thing! I used to rely on them for great work clothes- sharp jackets and pretty sheath dresses- but these days, nada! So I was very hopeful when I read that Banana is teaming up with the Mad Men costume designer, Janie Bryant, to debut a capsule collection out this August.

Finally, some things I actually can't wait to try on!

I am loving their ladylike dresses that will transition well into fall.

A gorgeous skirt suit- count me in!

 Love the silhouette of these pants...and great bag!

 Ladylike retro pumps.

Animal print- yes- where have you been hiding! 

Gorgeous dress that I can see flattering most any body.

I love how refreshingly ladlylike these clothes much as I love J Crew's more downtown, casual offerings these days, it seems like the glamour has gone out of clothing lately...let's hope this brings it back.

Have a great weekend, all- I am off to Charlotte to spend some much needed QT with my favorite mama-to-be (x2)! Sleepy Poet, watch out!!!

I feel the same way about BR, but when I saw this yesterday I got really excited! I love Mad Men and have always liked the 60's style dresses. Hopefully we can get another 40% off coupon by the time these items are released! LOL

BR use to be my go to store but is been at least a year since I purchased anything from them. I am hopeful about the Mad Men collection.

Agreed on the Banana as of late. I always know I can go in and find something if I can't find an outfit anywhere else. But lately... I've been let down. LOVE the images of the new stuff, though! I'll have to head back in when it hits racks.

I used to adore Banana Republic but I've hardly shopped there in *forever.* I'm loving some of these pieces, though, so I'm feeling hopeful!!

Hope the MoS girls have great fun this weekend - and call me if there's something I *need* at Sleepy Poet!!
