Who could forget the dress Kate Middleton wore for her official engagement photo? That navy blue number got as much attention as the engagement announcement itself, and it put Kate's favorite designer, Issa London on the map.
After seeing Kate in that dress, I was dying to have an Issa creation of my very own. Unfortunately, the average Issa dress costs at least $700, which is way beyond my budget.
But I've got good news, girlfriends. Issa London has teamed up with Banana Republic on a 40-piece capsule collection, and it'll be in stores and online on August 6th! What will it look like? Check out these selections from the lookbook.
It's a little hard to tell from the drawing, but I think this will be a lovely emerald green draped dress, with a plunging neckline. Issa's strong suit is draping a dress to flatter a range of figures. I'm definitely going to have to check this dress out!
This looks like one of Issa's fit-and-flare dresses in an animal print. Could be cute!
The collection, according to a release from Banana Republic, will be safari-inspired and include kimono tops, animal print, and oversized accessories. Prices will range between $40 and $150.
I can't wait to check it out! What about you?
