Stairing Down

Me:  Dress: Banana Republic BRxIssa c/o Shoes: Oscar De La Renta Necklace: J.Crew (similar)
Sadie: Dress: Banana Republic BRxIssa c/o Shoes: J.Crew  Necklace: Loren Hope

I’m loving the recent Banana Republic collaborations, especially the latest with Issa London. The dresses that Sadie and I are wearing make such a classic addition to any wardrobe. I paired my dress with fuchsia suede bow pumps and a statement necklace, but the simplicity of the dress allows you to wear it in so many different ways.

    You look so lovely in solids! It's a shame how Issa has separated itself from the Royal family, especially since the Duchess used to be such a big fan.

    I love Sadie's dress, I'm working on buying it for myself, for an obvious reason. Love you and your style/life style.

    I have the dress that Sadie is wearing and I love it! I can't believe how similar it looks to the Kate Middleton Issa dress. I'm so excited to start wearing it!

    Love the bright colors – if you had worn the royal blue one, you'd look exactly like Kate Middleton when she announced her engagement to Prince William!
