Thanks to Jean from Extrapetite.com, I was able to find this tweed dress at the outlet in 00P and I love it! It fits perfectly except I have to take up the hem:)

That dress looks terrific on you! Is there some room in the hips for you still? (looks like it)... I would need a few more inches than you there.

Here's how the same dress in 00P fits on AubreyOhDang (photo attached). She's a little taller so no hemming needed...jealous!

And here is a fitting room pic of the 00P on jetsetmeg: http://jetsetmeg.blogspot.com/2011/01/oohs-ewws-at-outlet.html

After purchasing this dress, I got a customer survey. I filled it out and got a code for 15% off. I have not used it. I would love to pass it onto someone else so that they can get this dress for less.

**************************************************
Dear Aubrey,

Thank you for your recent participation in the Banana Republic Factory
Store Online Survey. Below is the website for retrieving your 15% off
reward coupon, valid at any Banana Republic Factory Store location. The
coupon is valid until the expiration printed on it.

The website to retrieve your reward is at:

http://www.brfssurvey.info/reward/index ... P344M858QM
(Note: If the link above does not work, please cut and paste the entire
address into your web browser address bar)

Your Reward Code is: QP344M858QM

If you have any difficulty in dispensing your reward voucher, please feel
free to contact us at specials@brfssurvey.info.


We look forward to serving you again soon!

Banana Republic Factory Store
**************************************************


*You can only use this code once at any BR Factory store, so please reply to this thread if you have used this code.
**I know that you can use this on top of sale or clearance items. Not sure if it's stackable with the AAA discount Jean mentioned in her recent post about this dress. I would ask a SA for further info.
***You MUST print out the coupon. They wont accept it otherwise, even on your phone.

Good luck!

Drzaius- yes there is def some room in the hips area which I'm hoping will look much better once I take up the hem:-)

It looked like it worked on Jean's dress after she tailored it!!

Aubrey- u look amazing in the dress!! So happy u got it!! And wish I had that 15% off before.. Lol

Ooo Aubrey thanks for the coupon! I hope someone will put it to good use : )

And someone asked me whether the 15% student discount at regular BR stores also works at the outlet. I don't think so. While checking out I asked the sales associate about ANY possible discounts, including a student discount, and she said just the AAA.

I posted pics of pre and post-alterations here:

The photo below is with 3 inches hemmed off.
