I keep coming across images of Banana Republic’s Spring 2011 Line in all my fashion magazines. First InStyle featured a maxi dress and then I noticed a blurb in Bazaar too. I was pleasantly surprised. I am usually not a huge Banana Republic fan. I have bought some shoes and jewelry there but for the most part their clothes are just not my style and never really fit me right.
Their new Spring line has me rethinking things. It is feminine and slightly edgy. I am digging the florals and 70’s vibe. I totally agree with Bazaar’s statement, “Banana Republic’s new collection of flowerly summer frocks gives new meaning to the term Garden Party.”
The best part is the prices only range from $70 to $300. The blue floral Maxi dress, shown in the third picture (online now Here) is only $140 and I consider that a real steal for a fabulous maxi dress. I for one am thinking about giving Banana Republic another try, starting with one of the maxi dresses. What are your thoughts? Here are a few pics from the BR Runway.
