For this edition of the Shop with Me series I headed to my local Gap because they were running their Friends and Family 50% off deal and I had a gift card burning a hole in my wallet. While I was excited to see what they had for Fall, I was left a little disappointed. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood to shop, I don’t know, but I felt like very underwhelmed with what was in store. Here are some of the items I tried…
For size reference, I’m 5’9″ with a pear shape frame. I am typically a S/M up top and wear 8/10 on bottom.
Cold Shoulder Dress $69.95
I actually REALLY liked this dress – it was cozy, cute and would look great with opaque tights and booties. The only reason I didn’t snag this piece up is because I already own an obscene amount of gray dresses and wanted to be responsible. Fits true to size, I’m wearing a medium here.
Long Sleeve Mockneck Dress $69.96
This was another great item for the Fall/Winter season but again, I decided to pass. I liked that it hugged my curves without being inappropriate, the color was beautiful and it was warm but still lightweight however I didn’t think I would get much wear out of it which is why I didn’t buy. Fits true to size.
Bell-sleeve Eyelet Top $64.95
In theory this top was everything I look for however the material was just too stiff. I liked the delicate detail on the sleeves, collar and hem but again, I couldn’t get over how the stiffness of the material. It was also a little short, if I lifted my arms my belly would show. I would recommend sizing up.
Roll & Go True Skinny Jeans $79.95
These jeans were good but nothing ground breaking about them. Super soft and they sucked everything in pretty well. Fits true to size.
Flutter-sleeve Tee $44.95
The material of this tee is so cozy and soft to the touch! It drapes the body beautifully and the flutter sleeve is darling. I only passed it up because I have enough flutter sleeve tops. Fits true to size, I’m wearing a small.
Camo Girlfriend Chino’s $49.99
Another items I really wanted to love but they just didn’t work for my body. What bugged me most was that they were a mid-rise, and I also wish that they were more skinny in the pant leg. Fits true to size.
Stripe Rib-Knit Cardigan (on sale) $29.97
I didn’t expect to like this cardigan as much as I did. Very warm yet still lightweight which I loved! I also didn’t hate the stripes, lol. I was also a big fan of the fact that it had pockets.
Mid-Rise Destructed 360 Stretch Jeans $89.95
This was another piece that surprised me. They fit great and I loved where the distress hit the knee but wasn’t willing to drop almost $100 on jeans I wouldn’t be able to wear to work. As I was leaving I grabbed an undestressed black pair hoping for the best abut they weren’t the same. I ended up returning. I would recommend the destressed ones, though. I’m wearing a size 29, they fit true to size.
Eyelet Ruffle Shirt $39.97
This shirt screams, “JOANNE!” I was expecting to take this one home with me but it was just okay. I think I have too many blouses like this and everyone and their mom own’s this top so I decided to pass.
