While I was at the mall this weekend I popped into the Banana Republic. I was surprised and entertained to find that I already own a lot of this seasons fashion items. I could literally re-create an outfit on a mannequin with items I already have at home. All bought for a fraction of the price. A prime example are the ballet flats. They don’t look identical in the picture but they looked the same in the store. I bought the shoes on the left for our New York trip last summer and I love them. If you’re looking for a deal it’s something to consider. Added bonus is free shipping.
