Looking to expand your denim wardrobe without spending a ton of money? A pair of jeans that do triple duty, like Gap’s 1969 pintucked trouser jeans — part of their “LA Story” campaign — ought to do the trick. The high-waist and flared leg are totally on trend, the dark wash and trouser cut are office-appropriate, and, of course, denim can be styled to suit almost any occasion. Dress them up with heels and a cute top, go casual with boots and a sweater, and conduct serious biz by pairing them with a buttondown and blazer. One pair of jeans that go with everything? And did I mention they’re on sale? Yes please!
Gap has built its reputation around its classic denim jeans, but this fall, the retailer is shaking things up. The Gap 1969 collection will feature deep, saturated colors like the rust corduroy legging above. Gap has also developed unique washes. Its legging jean will be available in a gummy texture along with subtle camouflage and leopard prints. These definitely aren’t your regular blue jeans, but the corduroy leggings and legging jeans are just as affordable and comfortable. I lived in my Gap cords and black legging jeans last winter because they have just the right amount of stretch to be comfortable, but also hold their shapes.

It’s spring cleaning time! And if de-cluttering isn’t enough of an incentive to go through your closet and dresser drawers, then how about an awesome shopping discount? Gap and Goodwill have partnered up in support of the Donate Movement, “an effort powered by Goodwill to educate the public on the positive impacts donations can have on both people and the planet.” From May 19 to 29, Gap stores in the U.S. and Canada will accept used clothing donations that will be given to Goodwill Industries. In exchange for their donations, Gap customers will receive 30 percent off regularly-priced and sale merchandise! As any bargain shopper knows, Goodwill sells its donations in stores, but what you might not know is that 84 percent of the revenue generated supports job training programs across the U.S. and Canada. Donating to Goodwill also helps the environment by keeping discarded clothing out of landfills. Don’t you just love being rewarded for things you should do anyway, like helping your community?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just name your price at retail stores, like on eBay? Now you can, sort of. Gap has introduce a new name-your-price feature — Gap My Price, which makes no sense, but whatever — where you tell the Gap’s website how much you’d be willing to pay for one of their 15 negotiable items of clothing and it makes a deal with you. It’s a cool idea, to be sure, but it’s also a head scratcher. This U-neck stripe tee retails for $19.95 and I offered $16. Gap My Price came back with an offer of $19. Then I offered $18. Gap My Price then said the final offer was $19. So … I could save a whopping 95 cents by clicking on their website a bunch of times? [Gap My Price] Keep reading »
Listen, Gap, I know you’re calling this a “denim romper” to try to make it seem trendy and fresh, but the truth is, I had the exact same piece of clothing in 4th grade, and back then we called it by its rightful name: “shortalls,” aka jean short overalls. Your version might not have Winnie the Pooh characters embroidered on the front pocket, but that’s the only detectable difference. The jig is up. And honestly, I don’t think the world is ready for shortalls to make a comeback. Keep reading »
