Here’s another round of Banana Republic, this time dresses.
Mixed Print Riviera Dress, Size 6 – I really liked this dress. It has a slip-lining and fits loose but not like the JC Jules dresses. Just a really nice Ikat Shift Dress. The reviews are mixed online. I like the v-neck and it just sits well on my body. I am a 6 in shift or unstructured dresses so size down. I’m considering this one.
Floral Drop-Waist Dress, Size 6, Ivory – I believe this also comes in Black in-store. Or at least that’s what I thought I saw. This dress runs Small and would take some severe Spanxing to manage in this size. I love the big huge daisies all over the dress. I don’t like the exposed back zipper. The length was good and I didn’t find it too see-through though I was wearing nude undergarments. A pass for me but would be a great option for graduation or in the darker color for a wedding. Kind of loved it though and would consider it in the size 8.
Seamed Fit-and-Flare Dress, Size 6, White (also Navy) – This one isn’t as tight as the Drop-Waist Dress but I would still go up to an 8 in this. The Ponte is comfortable and not very thick but thick enough that it isn’t see-through in the white. You can see it has an exposed back zip in the last pic. I’d consider this on sale, probably in the Navy.
Heritage Textured Stripe Belted Sheath Dress, Size 6 – This dress was the image in my email and I was happy to see it in the store. But, this dress is structured and the size 6 does not fit. You might think it look like it does fit very well but I could not zip it up past the belt/waist. The hips were pretty tight too. I would like to try the size 8 and I really loved the material and the shape is really nice too. I hope the size 8 gives me the look of that tiny waist I see in these pics. 😉
