Trina Turk for Banana Republic Swirl Dress

ShareSorry for taking so long to post this! I’ve been crazy-busy wrapping up the DelectablyChic! Social (which was pretty  good, by the way) and just didn’t have time to take pictures.  The dress is so light weight and summer-ready and I’ve worn it out a couple of times already, including to a Father’s Day dinner […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic, Part 1: The Pisces Top

ShareOne of the items I purchased from the Trina Turk collection that Banana Republic recently released was the Pisces top.  I had thought about getting it in the warm combination (pinks, oranges and yellows), but decided on the cool version (turquoises, greens, blues, etc…) as it was more of a contrast than a compliment on […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Loot

ShareSome of the Banana Republic stores hosted an after 5 event to celebrate the launch of their Trina Turk collaboration where people got to shop for the looks as well as enjoy some delicious refreshments.  The collection of brightly coloured, resort-inspired pieces includes a very good selection of petite sizing, including tops, skirts (well, skirt […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Collab Video with Rescue Dogs

ShareIsn’t this ADORABLE? The sale is starts a week from today (June 7)!  Hope there’ll be pieces that’ll fit petite gals!  There are so many brightly coloured pieces in this collection. Though my closet is not nearly as drab as it used to be, colour is always good!   Are you looking forward to this […]

Cynthia’s Banana Republic Mad Men Collection Loot!

I walked into the Yorkdale store expecting disappointment, that it was going to be like last time, where there were NO PETITES AVAILABLE.  Turned out I was wrong.  Sort of.  As noted in the earlier post, there were only three dresses – two dresses inspired by Joan and one by Betty – on the racks. … [Continue Reading]

Mad Men Banana Republic Collection: Petites Available This Time!

Share The number one complaint for the last Mad Men Banana Republic Collection collaboration that launched in August 2011 was the lack of petite sizing.  This time, however, is a different story.  The collection, which has fewer pieces this time (and no shoes), includes petites in pretty much every item (except the cardigan – the […]

Christian Louboutin and Shoe Vanity Sizing

ShareYeah, I know. I neglected to mention that I’m finally a proud owner of Christian Louboutins!  The Prorata 90 mm pumps were purchased from a Christian Louboutin boutique in Hong Kong at the oh-so-hard-to-find size 34 (the similar-looking New Simple Pump starts at 35). Yes, size 34. Not 34.5 or size 35.  I don’t think […]

Mad Men for Banana Republic Animal Print Pumps

ShareEyed this a while back, but didn’t buy until a couple of weeks ago.  I was hesitant in purchasing Banana Republic shoes, because a few years ago, I tried on a pair of shoes and my feet slipped off as soon as I started walking.  Being a very small size 5, I was very hesitant […]

Gap 1969 Skinny Cord Leggings in Aubergine – Thanks ShortieK!

ShareI have been looking for these pants since I saw them on Jean’s September 30 post.  And they were sold out even then – I went to five stores in Toronto and even searched in Manhattan when I was down there for Canadian Thanksgiving.  I probably went to seven or eight stores in total.  The […]
