Banana Republic: Shine Faille Full Skirt, Ponte Midi Skirt, Ivory Box Pleat Skirt, Coated Green Sateen Skinny Ankle Pant

I was able to stop by Banana Republic over the weekend and try on some new arrivals, including some items on my current Pinterest Board.

~ Shine Faille Full Skirt, size 6 ~

This shiny skirt is great for the upcoming Holiday season. This size fit well and I would stick with it since I’d use it as a party skirt. The pleating might be too much or full for some but with the length on the shorter side it’s fine for me. 

~ Ponte Midi Skirt, size 8 ~

I want a midi skirt so badly but I feel it just overwhelms my 5’2″ height. Banana Republic has some great ones right now, including the Blue Metallic Jacquard Midi Skirt. The longest I can have a skirt and not feel frumpy is 22 inches. Funny that I used to wear skirts and dresses this length in high school, call “tea-length” at that time. The ponte feels nice and comfortable and the size 8 is a good fit. 
This was on sale at $39.99 and fits really well in the size 6. I like how the pleating does not start at the waist and that the drop waist isn’t too low. The material was a ponte’ knit and felt nice and great for Fall. I would have bought this if I didn’t already have an “Old School ‘Crew” skirt, the Flannel Parlour Skirt, in Ivory. 
I reviewed the Coated Mahogany Skinny Ankle Pant in this {post} and this is the same pant but in green. I liked the green a lot better and the 29 was a good fit. I have a black and a blue pair of coated denim so I’ll stick with those for now. 
I know I’ve said this before and even my friend Dianna and I have emailed each other about it but BR is just doing so well with their Collections right now. I am loving a lot of it! Go Marissa!!
