I LOVE these pants. This material is super thick for the Fall season, and a great quality. Sorry, dry clean only but it gets better....The back of the pants are very flattering on the rear, if I don't say so myself  ;) I might have just bought these too! If you become a Banana Republic Card Member, once you spend 800 dollars, you get complimentary alterations! Always check out when they are having their sales on certain days. Happy shopping xoxo

Elegant Black Lace Dress from the Anna Karenina Collection

This dress is incredible... 
Nothing is sexier than a little mystery. 
I just bought it yesterday!
The dress runs a little long, so you will most likely have to get it altered(so it comes above the knee). It is sexy, classic, yet has a modern edge to it! Buy yours today during their 30% off sale.
