My visit to the promised land

As you may have already read over at my should-have-been sister's blog, I visited the holy grail for the plus-sized woman, Banana Republic. I'd never actually been INSIDE one before because ... well, I didn't fit in the size 14 clothes that are the top of their in-store sizes. Sure, I could have bought from them online ... but it's not the same. Not the same at all.

So yesterday, I went, armed with my 30% off Friends and Family coupon. And I walked out ... with this. And this shirt to go under it, only in a very pale pink.

And I may or may not have teared up a little in the dressing room. Just a little.

What? I'm a girl.


  1. Wow, nice! Love the suit! :)

  2. It is indeed the holy grail! The suit is mega hawt!

  3. That's awesome! I love Banana. I feel like their buyer calls me each season and asks me what I'd like to see in the store. That's how much I love their clothes. I feel like they know me.

  4. I feel the same about Banana. Unfortunately, on a law student budget, I'm not buying much there. :)
