Banana Republic x Trina Turk: "Crazy Botanical" (Part One)

As a longtime fan of Trina Turk's famously fabulous prints, I was excited to have the opportunity to style a piece from the the Banana Republic Trina Turk Collection for Summer 2012. Per Trina, this capsule collection was "inspired by Palm Springs, pop prints and mid-century design" and created exclusively in collaboration with Banana Republic. The best part? All of the pieces come in petite sizing.

This collection hit stores on June 7, 2012--while I was in Turkey--so I unfortunately didn't get to see the launch in person. I was thrilled, however, to have this piece, the Crazy Botanical Twist-Strap Dress, waiting for me when I returned home. This dress runs a little small, so a size up (0P) from my normal Banana Republic Petites size was a touch roomy, but ultimately very comfortable since the 100% silk doesn't stretch at all.

In these photos, I've styled the dress for a summer evening out, adding my favorite turquoise cardigan for possibly cooler nighttime weather. Tune in tomorrow to see me style this dress for work! Want to see more ways to style the versatile Crazy Botanical Print? Check it out on fellow petites Jean, Wendy, and Khatu.


Readers, did you pick up any pieces from the Banana Republic x Trina Turk collaboration?

    1. Thank you! I really love the size of this bag, too! It's not overwhelming, but I can fit so much stuff in it. The big pockets on either side of the main compartment are pretty amazing as well. What color is yours?
