Fitting Room: Banana Republic & H&M New Arrivals

Textured pocket blazer – size 00P (pink version here)
I’ve been wanting this blazer for awhile and finally got to try it on. It fits really nicely – requires no alterations on someone my size. I’m patiently waiting for a better sale. Use code BRTAKE30 for 30% off purchases of $150 or more.
Left to right: Belted ponte sheath, Chevron ponte dress, Vanessa v-neck sheath – all size 00P
Unfortunately, none of these fit me but would look great on someone taller and bigger. I had high hopes for the chartreuse belted ponte sheath but it didn’t work out. Just wanted to share in case anyone is curious on the fit or likes any of them.
H&M honeycomb open cardigan – size XS
Fits nicely but I didn’t love it enough to bring it home.

I went looking for these three items but I couldn’t find any of them. I really want the cream full skirt so if anyone sees it, please let me me know!
On another note, it was brought to my attention (unfortunately not in a positive way) that I didn’t properly link fellow blogger Cee to my last post and have fixed it. For what it’s worth, it was not intentional nor did I remember her outfit from 2011.  I think she is amazing and apologize for any confusion.  I have made my Twitter account private due to some recent activity that was not cool – so if you want to follow, please send a request.  If you have an issue with me or if I have done something wrong, please contact me directly instead of using Twitter or any other platforms to humiliate me/my blog or get readers/retailers involved.

  1. Well, it’s not like it’s a research publication. I don’t see any rules for correct citation of outfits. Seriously.

  2. I like the textured pocket blazer. It has a sharp and refined look.

    Separately, I am sorry to hear that people are giving you a hard time on your blog. Personally, I always thought it was unfair how some readers have always seemed to target you whereas giving biased comments to another petite blogger. It was not fair and it is still not fair. Do you know that the other petite blogger recently has a post where her exact posture in the picture was a copy of her “friend” Wendy on Wendy’s lookbook? How come I didn’t hear anything about copycat in that case? Anyhow, don’t like negative stuff like that gets you down. Your blog is great and many readers enjoy your style and posts.

  3. I love the BR dresses and the H&M choices. I see a H&M run in my future. I have been following your blog for over a year and feel really bad that other bloggers are targeting you. We all see things we love and try to recreate it in our closet but goodness, who remembers where we saw every idea? I am not a blogger so I don’t get it but maybe it’s the competition for sponsors. I would never follow a blogger that used the internet to bully others – it’s just unprofessional.

  4. Oh I’m sorry to hear about the not so cool problems on twitter about you or your blog. I’ve always enjoyed reading your blog and you’ve given me great advice 🙂

  5. I have decided not to post to Twitter going forward. I had a lot I wanted to say when it first occurred but sometimes taking some time and stepping away is best instead of saying things you can’t take back. My mom said people are always so quick to remember you for the bad things you do rather than the good. :/ This has proven true time and time again.

    On a lighter not I missed the 40% off promotion earlier this week (or rather last week now since it’s Sunday) but I’m sure you took advantage of it. 🙂 I love the pretty print pattern of the H&M dress so it’s really too bad about it didn’t work out for you.

  6. We’re a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme
    in our community. Your website provided us with valuable info to work
    on. You’ve performed a formidable process and our whole community shall
    be grateful to you.

  7. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone
    else experiencing problems with your blog. It appears like some of the
    text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please
    comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Many thanks

  8. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to
    the whole thing. Do you have any points for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  9. Hello! I simply would like to give you a big thumbs up for the excellent information you have here on this post.
    I’ll be returning to your web site for more soon.
