Printed Banana Republic Wrap Dress

I got this dress when I was in Florida at the Banana Republic Factory store. That is always a stop off for me when in the US because they have a petites section. Little did I know that the BR Factory store near my work ALSO has a petites section LOL! I guess I can now try to fit in some lunch time shopping instead of waiting all year round to hit the BR factory store ;)

BR Factory Wrap Dress – XSP
Shoes: Nine West size 7
This dress fits me quite well but I still wear a camisole underneath – it’s a wrap dress so I have to be careful about unintentional gaps. I also find that I need to be cautious about the bottom of the dress as it can split open quite high if I’m not paying attention. I’ll probably have to look for a black slip to solve both these issues.

I had seen Jean tweet a picture of Khatu and then later in the week saw her Mono Print post. Aren’t the dresses so similar?
This dress is perfectly work appropriate and I don’t think it needs much of anything to dress it up since the print is fairly bold already and there is so much contrast with black and white.

Any thoughts as to where I can find a black slip made for someone my height? (Can you even buy full length slips anymore?)

Shop a similar look:

    The dress looks great on you! For full length slips, they are probably harder to find than half slips, but try Sears or Winners. You might even find some at Walmart or something, but I can’t attest to the quality.

    Love that dress! How about some fashion tapes to avoid the flap from flying away without having to wear some extra layer? Slips will be perfect for the fall warmth though. Hmmm try Macys or target?

    This is a great dress! Wrap dresses are so timeless and classic, especially in black and white like this one. I do wear a cami and slip under mine so nobody gets any unintentional flashing, lol. I think I found my black slip at Target? Heather

    I’ve seen shorter length full slips at Wal-Mart for around $16. They come in black, white and beige.

    Love the print of this!

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Thanks Cher! I’ll definitely look into those store – funny how I never had a use for slips before ;)

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Thank you Christa! :)

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Ooh good idea! I just bought some fashion tape too! Sadly no Macy’s or Target here :( But Target is coming to Canada next year!

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Thanks Heather! LOL yeah I’m always worried about that ;) Gah wish Target was here already!

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Ooh thanks! I’ll have to check them out! I RARELY go to Walmart though – I hate the crowds – but maybe I’ll pop in on my lunch or something ;)

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Thanks Kat! It’s actually REALLY comfortable too. Reminds me of the DVF ones ;)

    I love the Banana Republic Factory Store. I always shop at the Vaughan Mills location :) I love the print and the wrap style makes your waist look itty bitty!

  • http://thepetitefittingroom.blogspot.com/ Michelle

    You look amazing!! This hugs your curves so nicely! I just posted a BR Factory dress, too! :)

    Maybe consider using a safety pin for the bottom part?

    you look great in that bold print! so work appropriate :)

    You look gorgeous in that dress!

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Thanks! I don’t know why I don’t have more wrap dresses!

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Heee thanks SL ;) Any good finds recently?

  • TOBeautyReviews

    OMG a safety pin! I never even thought of that LOL! Oooh I’ll have to check your post out and see if we have it in Canada too!

    The print is fantastic, but I think it would look pretty great with a bright/bold coloured belt to break up the pattern!

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Thanks so much Jenny! I was a bit worried the print would be too bold for my frame but I think it worked out :)

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Thanks so much Tracy!

  • TOBeautyReviews

    Ahh good thinking! I’ll try that out next time. The ties of the wrap dress are kind of long though so with a belt it might be a little bulky under? I’ll try it out though. Maybe I should pair it with some brighter accessories like bangles or a necklace? Or even just earrings?

  • witheachpassingday

    The dress is gorgeous on you. When I wear a wrap dress I usually used a safely pin to pin the bottom together. Just be careful because the safely pin may create tiny hole in the dress. Fashion tape may be a better option.
