I ordered this striped dress last week for 40% off and I also used my $20 in BR Rewards. I always assumed that we lose the rewards in the event of a return but Annie assured me that there is nothing to worry about. She had the same concern and confirmed that the rewards eventually get credited back to our accounts. First world problems. :)
Here is the dress on my dress form:
I actually struggled to put the dress on her and zip it up because she has a 33" bust but it fits me perfectly (I am one inch smaller at 32").
The measurements of the 0 petite are as follows:
13 1/4" waist
35" total length
Without further ado, here is the dress on me:
It hits right above the knee on me making it perfect for work. I really love the way the box pleats fall on the skirt and the fact that it has pockets. There is a exposed zipper on back but the dress is so cute that I don't mind. It's made of a comfortable, stretchy ponte material that drapes well and is not very wrinkle prone. (Any wrinkles seen above are due to the harsh lighting and they are not apparent to the naked eye in real life.)
Banana Republic has been running a 40% off one item promotion every Wednesday (including today) for the past few weeks. I'm not sure how long they'll keep this up but it's a decent discount if something catches your fancy. This dress is a total keeper for me and I definitely recommend trying it on for size when you get the chance.
