There was a lot of excitement and buzz over the new Banana Republic Mad Men Collection. I generally have fit issues at Banana Republic and have to shop the petite section but still I find most of the Banana Republic items I have are from the US Factory stores.
I was excited to hear there would be some petite pieces available for the collection but when I went online I was disappointed that on the Canadian site there were only 2 dresses in petites.
Next up from the Mad Men Collection was the lace shell. I fell in love with the look of this one but I didn’t have high hopes since it didn’t come in petites.
way too big 🙁
Next I got a Chambray Shirt:
Chambray Button Up (petite)
I little messy untucked but I wanted to show the fit.
Looks much better tucked, but I’m still unsure about it. What are your thoughts?
I also saw that there are shoes online now! I have never tried Banana Republic Shoes so I thought I would give these a try.
Kamea peep-toe black
Overall I liked these shoes. The fit seemed decent and true to size but my right foot felt tight and my left foot was slipping a bit. I’m pretty picky with shoes now, the HAVE to be comfortable I’m not willing to compromise anymore. I might walk around the house in these for a bit and see how they feel, but the peep toes themselves hurt my toes, so I have a feeling I will be returning these as well.
I got all these items for 25% whatever price was listed on the website. The only item I *might* keep is the Chambray shirt, but I would love your thoughts on it. I actually re-ordered it at 40% off along with a couple other things, so essentially this whole order will likely be going back.
Did you pick up any pieces from the Mad Men Collection or Banana Republic in general?
