So..Banana Republic has always had a "Mad Men" inspired fall line. But this year is the first year that they collaborated with the costume designer from the show.
These clothes are simply divine! I ran out looking for that tweed suit that the model is rocking. And as soon as I saw that tweed suit, I had to have it. It would be a great investment piece and I DID NOT CARE what the price was.I think when I saw the initial ad for it...i was in LOVE!
I went to 2 stores. The first store had my size skirt but the jacket was a tad tight. So I called another location and asked if they bigger jacket and the same size skirt. They kindly held both the skirt and jacket for me until I got off work! I was in LOVE! I got so many compliments on it from the staff (who was a bunch of gay dudes..they wouldn't lie. LOL...) I was going to rock that thing with leather gloves, leopard pumps, and a schweet updo.
They do have shoes but for the price (about $120) they are a bit on the boring side...(well blah really). But check them out! Banana Republic does make a quality product
I'd actually pair these classic sillouttes with a more modern shoe. Perhaps an ankle boot. Or a platform wedge with detailing. Or maybe even an "industrial" stilletto. Like this one by Sam Edelman:
