Later that evening, we hit up a launch party for Issa’s new line at Banana Republic. Banana Republic has got my number down with these designer collaborations. I LOVED the Milly line and got a couple pieces for summer and I was equally impressed with the Issa collection. I have an Issa dress and the fabric quality was on par with the Banana Republic version, but a fraction of the cost.
The little party included virgin Pimm’s lemonade and adorable cookies. The launch included a 30% off coupon, so I treated myself to that orange-zebra number on the left (when my husband saw this dress in my closet he responded with, “nice, you got yourself a squirrel suit“….he later showed me this video to show me the resemblance) . I was on the fence on the green short sleeve one, but it may end up in my closet at a later date.
Since my sister is a huge theatre person (super talented and amazing), we also went to see Book of Mormon.
We also did the college campus tour circuit and visited Northwestern, DePaul, and University of Chicago. I cannot tell you how excited I would be to have Ella in Chicago with me. This means I would have a make up artist, a dog sitter (when I get a dog), and a buddy to explore the city with.

This also happened.
Every visitor must experience the carby goodness of Glazed and Infused.
How many siblings do you have? What are the age gaps? It is just us two girls in my family, and we are 10.5 years apart.
Thoughts on the new BR Issa collection? Some of the necklines were a little high for my liking. They seemed more “business-y” than the original line. I love my “squirrel suit” Issa and very comfortable- perfect for vacation.
