When I received an email from Banana Republic with a model wearing this dress, I searched the Banana Republic website and even went to their store looking for it. Unable to find it, I kept going back every few days and finally asked a salesperson about it. He said that merchandise shown in emails isn’t automatically sold in the stores. When I had finally given up hope that I’d find it, it turned up in the store.
I realize that going back to the store every few days to look for a dress is obsessive, but what intrigued me about this dress is the dropped waist. Dropped waists haven’t been shown in a while (so I thought the style was fresh), and they bring back good memories. In college, I had a black tank dropped waist dress that I loved and wore until it was so faded it was embarrassing. I guess it’s true that everything old is new again!
