I was thrilled to be invited to a special breakfast event this morning to preview the Banana Republic Pre-Fall Collection. My sweet friend Marilou of 20 York Street extended the invite to me and I hopped at the chance to go.
I got up bright and early this morning to attend the 7:30am event and got a tour of the new collection and tried on just about each new piece. This collection features lots of blush pink colours, flowy fabrics, beautiful delicate prints and shots of army green and navy were punctuated throughout.
I was thrilled to see that pretty pastels and some jewel tones such as cobalt blue would be big this fall. I don’t care what anyone says, but cobalt blue looks wonderful on everyone! I happily handed over my exhausted, used-to-death credit card in exchange for some classic pieces to add to my fall wardrobe…all of which will transition nicely from the oppressive August heat to the milder, crisper September temperatures. Also, Marilou’s invite couldn’t have come at a better time…my work wardrobe was looking sad and tired.
Here are some pics of the event and pieces I scored today! Be sure to check out the Friends & Family event which runs from August 19th to 23rd!
