I'm trying another piece from the Banana Republic slim-fitting Sloan line today--these ankle-zip pants in black. A 00P fit me pretty well--the inseam and the fit down my legs were both perfect, but I did experience some gapping at the waist in the back, which resulted in a little bagginess through the seat. I'm planning to have them taken in at the waist and possibly in the seat to get them to a perfect fit.

As I mentioned in my last post, I am really liking the Sloan fabric. The extra thickness and stretch makes for a flattering and comfortable fit. I'm definitely considering adding a few more of these pieces to my workwear wardrobe.

Hope everyone at NYFW right now is staying warm and having a great time! Wish I were there!



  1. You always rock classic and professional look so well! Loving this blazer on you! You look like you are ready for spring :)

  2. The pants look great on you, and I love that jacket!!

  3. How do the pants fit at the end of the day? I find that Gap and BR pants tend to have a baggy butt come quitting time. I hate that!

    1. I still have to get the waist taken in a bit, so I haven't tried wearing them for a workday yet. So far I'm not seeing much sagging, but I'll report back!

  4. What a lovely outfit! The pink looks so pretty with the jacket :)

  5. Aren't you cute! You always find the best petite stuff, and none of it looks babyish or immature. You have so much poise and give me the best inspiration as a fellow petite girl for work and weekend.
