I never really did, until I read about them on xoxo's blog last year. I always thought of them as stuffy, old-corporate, mostly for men, probably good quality but boring and strictly for the office. There is a Brooks Brothers store in the mall that I visit quite often, and even if BB store is on my way to J.Crew, I don't think I ever stepped inside until last year. I love to try new brands and since xoxo was raving about the line, I decided to check them out. I am glad I did. I actually went in to try their dress shirts, because I thought I can always use another white shirt, but instead, I left the store with this dress:
|From Brooks Brothers 2011|
|Size 6 and perfect fit|
|it was about $85, totally worth it|
This was one of the my best purchases last year.
Xoxo recently did a post on Black Fleece, more upscale line from Brooks Brothers and she will be doing more reviews of the line, so be sure to check it out, because her reviews are one of the most thorough and detailed in the blogosphere.
The Black Fleece is too rich for my blood at full price, so I will wait for the sales and I want to read xoxo's reviews, to get an idea on sizes and fit before I order anything.
However, here are few of my picks from current regular Brooks Brothers offerings.
|Liberty Print Meadow Dress|
|Linen Pinstripe Jacket|
|Supima® Cotton Long-Sleeve Cardigan with Pleated Hem|
|Cotton Dot Print Skirt|
That's all folks!
