BCBG Dress for a Bat Mitzvah

Trina Turk for Banana Republic, Part 1: The Pisces Top

One of the items I purchased from the Trina Turk collection that Banana Republic recently released was the Pisces top.  I had thought about getting it in the warm combination (pinks, oranges and yellows), but decided on the cool version (turquoises, greens, blues, etc…) as it was more of a contrast than a compliment on […]
