I am always looking for great classic pieces. Something with a classic cut, color and a twist of modern elegance that will work right into my existing wardrobe. When I saw this dress online at the Banana Republic NYFW Spring preview I knew I had to have it.  For months I waited till it became available and than I stalked Banana Republic's website for a month before it went on sale. As soon as I saw the mark down, it was in my cart and purchased so fast you would have thought my pants were on fire. Yes!! It's mine.
The dress arrived just a few days ago. As soon as I unwrapped it I knew it was a keeper. The deep navy color is an instant classic and can I just take a minute to talk about the fabric. AMAZING!  The tweed is stunningly beautiful with a subtle multi-color weave. It almost looks like fine ribbons woven together and it is so soft. I love everything about this piece from the color, to the fabric, to the modern neckline, which is extremely flattering.  This piece will stay in my closet season after season for years to come.  In ten years when it has been worn bare I know I'll cry when I retire it. Yep I mourn the loss of good pieces. There are tears, tissues and I become a hot mess. Thank God for Ebay.




  1. wahoo for great weather! such a chic dress! I love the neck line!

    1. Kelsey Bang, hands down my new favorite dress. I can't wait to wear it in the summer as is and in the fall/winter with a blazer or camel coat!!

  2. I mourn when my favorite pieces wear out, too :( Now I'm getting sad about this fabulous tailored sweatshirt I had to retire. RIP!

    1. Briton, your sweatshirt is getting a moment of silence right now....
