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 »
Prince William and Kate Middleton might have royal connections, but that hasn’t stopped them from dressing like common folk. Both William and Kate have been keeping their looks casual in the days leading up to their wedding.

Everyday, until April 30, there will be one winner in each Gap store. That means more than 6,000 winners! So hurry into a Gap near you and enter for your chance to win! Keep reading »
Earlier this week, we asked you to tell us the most ridiculous fashion hybrid item you could imagine, along the lines of jeggings, jorts, shooties, and my contribution to the fashion lexicon, bradigan. The most original and hilarious suggestion would win Gap’s Soft Trench, part of the brand’s spring collection. We’ve picked a winner — read her winning comment after the jump — but the rest of you can still grab a Soft Trench of your own at a steep discount during tomorrow’s Gap Flashion sale. The Soft Trench — normally priced at $89.95 — will be available in stores for a mere $50 tomorrow only. I’m not passing that up! Keep reading »
Jeggings. Shooties. Jorts. So many hybrid fashion terms, too little time after shopping to memorize them. It’s okay, here’s one worth remembering — FLASHION. That when flash sales occur on hot fashion items allowing shoppers the opportunity to grab them before sell out at a major markdown. Gap is having one a Flashion sale of their own this Saturday March 5th — in-store shoppers will be able to grab this Soft Trench for only $50, nearly $40 off the retail price of $89.95, and just for that one day. But like Veruca Salt, do you want in nowwww — and for free? We’re giving away a Soft Trench to one super lucky reader!
WIN THIS! Tell us in the comments what the most ridiculous fashion hybrid item (a la jeggings) you could imagine would be — and what it would be called. For example, BRADIGAN: a bra that buttons in the front like a cardigan. The most hilarious answer will walk away with Gap’s Soft Trench and the rest of you will have to get your own on Saturday. Enter by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 3, 2011. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, March 4. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. (Read the official rules here.) Good luck!

What woman needs another new bag, right? We’re willing to break the “the holidays just happened so you can’t buy yourself something new” rule for a versatile hobo bag on sale for a whopping 50 percent off. It’s funky enough for a night out with the girls — without going into tacky studs overload! — and low-key enough to throw your books in for class. Heck, you could even use it as a diaper bag if babies are more your thing! A gorgeous satin lining will let you feel super chic, even though you know you got this bag for a steal. Now, every new bag needs a new pair of shoes to go with it, right …?
I have a really hard time walking past a Gap store without going in. But I have an even more difficult time paying the ridiculous prices of some Gap basics. Fortunately, this weekend I didn’t have the latter problem because the Gap is having a mega end-of-season sale. Not only were many of the winter and fall items on sale, but the Gap was also offering a 40 percent discount on top of the sale price in stores. I didn’t go crazy in there because sizes in the store were quite limited. There is, however, a large selection of sizes, colors, and styles on sale online. Check out some of my favorites.

Oh, if only we had $200 for shoes we don’t need. Gap‘s latest collaboration with Pierre Hardy brings us these fierce black suede peep-toe wedges trimmed with leather. The latest Gap/Pierre Hardy collab is just one of many the store has put out lately, including Vena Cava, Stella McCartney, Keds and the (alleged) Valentino collab yet to come. Retail price on these bad boys, $195, is a tad high even for a high/low collaboration, but they’re versatile enough in the fall and winter months to make it worth it. I’d wear these with black tights and a brightly colored dress. And you? [Style.com] Keep reading »
Earlier this week, the internet was buzzing over Gap’s new logo. And most folks weren’t happy and took to Gap’s Facebook fan page to express their displeasure over the new look. Now, Gap is backpedaling. Keep reading »
Fall is a splendid time to update your bag wardrobe — your go-to straw tote is looking quite out of place right now. We’ve fallen hard for Gap’s Leather Tassel Tote, which can fit just about anything, including a laptop. It’s constructed well of thin, soft leather so it won’t add extra weight to your daily load. Plus, the tassel gives the tote a playful feel, whereas the unlined interior keeps the look rugged.
