*Fall Into the Gap*: Items Worth Mentioning...Part II

As promised yesterday...here are a few more items from the Gap that I had the opportunity to see IRL and think are worth mentioning. *If you click on the name of the item in blue it will take you to the item's page on Gap.com.*

First is the
Supersoft V-Neck T which comes in numerous colors. I didn't get the chance to try this on, so I cannot comment as to sizing, but the tee appeared to be a substantial weight...definitely not ringspun, by any means. At $10 each I think they could make a great *basic* wardrobe piece. Next is the Pintucked Jacket which comes in Classic Sepia and New Off White. This jacket is really lovely IRL...the colors are pretty and the fabric is substantial. The colors of the jacket work well with numerous pants, shorts, and skirts currently being offered. I'm not sure how the Mandarin collar would look on me, but the jacket is definitely on my list to try out when it goes on sale.Then there is the Lightweight Woven Scarf. This particular one comes in Aran Cream and New Navy, but there are also Ombre and patterned ones, as well. I thought the scarves felt nice to the touch, and the colors are very pretty. I love to wear scarves and think they are a great way to *pull together* an oufit.
Last up is the Floral Pintucked Shirt . I must say that this shirt is so much better IRL than in the online pictures. The fabric and print are lovely, and it was in the sale section in both the Blue and Khaki floral. Now I really wish I had gotten one while in the store with the extra 25% off, because most sizes are sold out online. I think it's definitely worth checking out if you happen to be in a Gap store.

So that's it from the Gap for now...I'm sure there will be more to come in the future. :)

Are you planning to visit the Gap soon? Have you been recently? Did you find any items you feel are worth mentioning?

  1. Love these Gap posts, the Gap was my first go-to store. I got a few of the new cuffed tees several weeks ago and like them a lot. They run a little large, but colors and shape stays well after washing and drying. The light fabric is great for summer and the arm cuffs are flattering with the v neck. The look is very Scarlett Johanson, if that makes any sense.

  12. !!!Happy Birthday FFM!!! (Thanks to Gigi's post to you on her blog for letting me know.)

    I appreciate the Gap posts as I was a 'Gap-girl' for quite some time. I'm happy to see some nicer items from them and I still buy quite a bit clothing, esp. kids clothes, from them. I'm awaiting an order now and wish I had checked in here before ordering (hate to pay the $7 more than one time, then it's not a deal).

    I am also sooo excited they purchased Athleta! Athleta is expensive but the quality is #1 as far as swimwear.

    Thanks for all the postings and I hope you have the best birthday ever! Eat lots of cake and ice cream!! :)

  13. Thank you IRL!

    I also think it's great they purchased Athleta, especially since the shipping charge is for all 5 stores, and you can buy something from all of them for that rate.

  19. Happy Birthday!! I hope you have a fantastic and blessed day!!

    I recently purchased one of the striped tees from Gap and I really like it. It is the one in Navy and white and the fabric is like a ringspun, a bit different than J.crew's ringspun but I really like it. I wear it with my Target Pearl Cluster necklace and dark dark denim.

    P.S. I like your picks from today too, I've been eyeing that jacket.

  28. Thanks to you FFM I had to check out this top at the GAP and purchased it right away!! It is such thick cotton and a great fit, I think that that I can pull it off for work this Summer with the right jewelry. I also used the promo they had where if you purchase a pair of pants at FP then you get a top at 50% off. So I picked up some cute Capri's for $49.50 and got the top for $34. I liked the white best as the brown did not seem right to me?
    Love your blog and happy belated birthday! Sorry about the loser and your car incident. I try to tell myself that Karma will take care of these sorts of situations. Someone can only do these kind of things for so long before Karma gets them back!!
