My Easter Sunday dress.

April 9, 2012

Filed Under: Style

This spring I have the honor of collaborating with Banana Republic! As many of you know, I am an employee at Gap and since Banana Republic is owned by Gap, I shop there frequently. Their clothing is beautiful, professional, classy, and high quality. So when given the opportunity to represent them, you can bet I jumped at the chance!

I chose to feature the Linda Floral Dress from Banana’s spring collection. I love the fit of this dress. It’s very tailored, and features a pleated neckline, fitted waist (that actually hits at my waist) and a pencil skirt with a modest length. The shape is definitely my favorite part of the dress. It makes me feel so classic and sophisticated!

After I made a very slight, 3/4 of an inch, hem alteration (I’m 5’4″ but rarely order petite sizes), I wore it out to yesterday’s Easter church service. It was a little chilly and a lot windy outside, so I added a blazer. I liked the structured detail that the blazer added in contrast to the femininity of the floral print.
