Royal Blue

{Banana Republic Issa wrap dress c/o, Evado sandals, Classic Coach shoulder bag worn as a clutch, J.Crew Factory necklace}

I’m sure most of you already heard, but for those of you who haven’t, Banana Republic recently teamed up with Issa (one of Kate Middleton’s favorite British brands) to recreate some of the brands popular pieces at a more affordable price point. When BR asked me to style one of the limited-edition dresses I was both excited and nervous at the same time. You see, I’ve never even tried on a wrap dress let alone a replica of the dress the Princess wore for the royal couples engagement announcement (pressure!). After a few hems here and there, I fell in love with the dress. I love that the shorter hemline keeps the dress fun and sexy, but doing so without showing too much skin. I think this was a case of “it looks better on than it does on the rack,” if you know what I mean. I may have to give wrap dresses a go!
