BR Sale Section, you foul temptress
The sale section of Banana Republic seems to have exploded over night. There are lots of new additions to wage war with your wallet (glancing through the sale has already been and epic battle of will). There are some beautiful new pieces on sale now, including several in the Trina Turk collection. Plus, use code BRJULY through tonight at midnight eastern to take an additional 25% off sale prices. Make sure to get $50 in your cart, pre-code, if you want free shipping. Here are some of my favorite pieces from the sale, and the discounted prices shown take into account that 25% off code…
Soft Wash Denim Shirt – $37.49 ($69.50)
A denim shirt like this is a great staple to have in your closet. It will go with so many things, and you can layer it or wear it solo. A great shirt for fall.
Trina Turk Pisces Top – $48.74 ($89.50)
Reviews are all over the place when it comes to this top, but the colors and print sure are pretty. According to reviews the fabric is very thin, like a tissue tee, and for some the fit was funky. Perhaps a garment to take a risk on only if it truly strikes your fancy. Fortunately it can be returned for free in store. Only the “warm” color version of this is on sale. The “cool” color version is still full price in regular sizes (petites are marked down in both color options).
Polka Dot Trench – $97.49 ($150)
Most of the country is in a severe drought, but something’s got to give. And when rain does finally show up, trench coats come in very handy. It’s just about August, and that means cooler, wetter weather is just around the corner. A coat like this will add sass to any outfit.
This is a great blazer f0r showing off that lady like figure. The clean peplum cut accentuates curves, and the single pleats in front give it a Victorian flair. If you want to wear it casually, just roll the sleeves up like the model.
Another gorgeous garment from Trina Turk in the same Pisces print from above, but this is the “cool” color version of the print. I love the color combination. Reviews are great on this dress. This color scheme could definitely move into fall. Wear a pretty jewel toned blazer or cashmere cardigan over it.
Here is a beautiful dress for a curvier body. The cross front provides good coverage, and the pleated waist slims in the right place. Reviews are all positive on this dress. And bonus for the short girls, petite sizes are down to $67.50 with the sale code.
Only the navy version of this skirt is currently on sale (it is also offered in a khaki color). What a cute, and flattering, staple that can be worn year round. Perfect for work attire, but with a tank and pumps or wedges, this is also great for grownup playtime. The skirt is mostly cotton, so should be comfortable this time of year.
Sizes are few and far between in the blue color option at this point, but there are plenty of sizes in the brown. This maxi would be great for early days in the fall season that are still comfortably warm, but might be leaning towards cool at points. This skirt has nice coverage and a fun, big graphic print.
Nina T-strap Sandal – $67.49 ($120)
There’s a lot going on with this heel. Peep toe, t-strap, gladiator, all wrapped up in one stylish package. Also available in “truffle”, which leans more grey.
Nothing but glowing reviews on these peep-toe pumps. I love the red, but they are also available at a slightly lower price (and leather texture) in “Ivory” and “Vintage Caramel”. Gosh these are tempting.
Have a plain dress that needs a little something extra? This belt will probably do the trick. Also available with a “natural” (tan) colored flower, if you’re looking for something more neutral.
Purple Majesty Necklace – $37.49 ($79.50)
Add some glamour to a black or plum dress with this necklace. The “stones” are plastic, but they look really pretty. An easy way to make a statement.
Code BRJULY will get you 25% off your sale purchase thru 7/31/12, 11:59pm eastern time.
