Hi friends! Doesn’t it seem that nowadays every retailer offers an outlet? From J Crew Factory, Gap Factory, Ann Taylor Factory, etc., they all offer items made specifically for their outlets. Stylish pieces of course, but made to be sold at a lower price. 👍🏻 I’m a big fan of J Crew Factory (love their clothes!), but thought I’d give Banana Republic Factory a go. 😀
This darling dress comes in three color options – red floral, blue leaf print and black floral. The red option is more of a red-orange color. It has a crew neckline, short sleeves, elastic waistline with a self-tie and feminine flounced hemline. I’m 5’6 for reference and you can see the length hits right above the knees. The top portion is meant to be blouse-y. It’s made of a poly- spandex blend. How cute would this look with a denim jacket and white slip-on sneakers!

Next is this t-shirt dress, which is cute and simple. When you’re rushing to get ready, this dress is easy to slip on and super-comfortable too! It’s a blank slate that can be accessorized with your favorite scarf, necklace, or denim jacket. The options are endless! Sneakers, flip flops or heels – you really can’t go wrong. It has a deep v-neckline, cuffed sleeves, and an elasticized waistline. Clever side pockets come in handy for storing any little bits and pieces. My only complaint is the material. It’s very lightweight (rayon blend) and while it’s comfortable, I feel the material is a bit thin. I don’t like to see the outline of the pockets in a dress (or skirt), so it took some finagling to not see that. Does that make sense? Otherwise, super cute! It’s available in olive green, maritime blue, red stripe, yellow stripe and black stripe.
I could not be more excited to try on this striped top! Oh my gosh, too cute. 😍 First the colors – stripes of camel, gray, pink, and red against an ivory background. It has ribbing along the crew neckline, cuffs and hemline. It’s lightweight, cotton-blend and just fits perfectly- not fitted nor loose. It also comes in a navy stripe option. Pair it with skirts and trousers, jeans and shorts.
Banana Republic Factory definitely has some cute, fun pieces that are very budget friendly! Have a great day and I’ll see you all next time! XO ~ Michelle
