The Gap is usually a go-to for our fall shopping, so we were pleasantly surprised to see this Groupon offer land in our inbox this morning: Sign up for the deal and you’ll only pay $25 for $50 worth of merchandise in stores. For those not familiar with Groupon, it’s a sort of local coupo…

Should Some People Not Wear Shorts?

“Put some pants on!” this ad in the window of a Gap store declares. “Because we can’t all look good in shorts.” The provocative ad has inspired a controversy.

Are These Baby Gap Mannequins Too Sassy For Their Own Good?

This Baby Gap store window display in NYC caught our eye and we just had to snap a pic for your review. Yeah, the jeans are adorable, but the girl mannequin appears to be midway through a pelvic thrust (do babies have that kind of coordination?) and he’s popping enough collars to be initiated into…

Cheapskate: Gotta Love The Gap

Last week, I sauntered into the Gap to escape the heat and to check out the sale section. Once again, Gap didn’t let me down and somehow I walked out of there with a shopping bag full of sale goodies. While the items weren’t truly remarkable, they are staples, like a striped oversized T-shirt and…

Get Stella McCartney’s Fancy Panties At Gap Prices

Remember days of the week underwear? (We were the girls who could never get it right and were always wearing Tuesday’s panties on a Thursday. So rebellious.)

A Soft Denim Shirt Resurrected From The ’90s

Trend alert: denim button-ups are on the up-and-up. We’re seeing this ’90s style come back through all of our favorite retailers. While we scratched our heads and said, Huh? at first, we’re now kind of digging the look, which strays from the preppy Ralph Lauren aesthetic of yesterday and now seems vintage and model-perfect. Our…

Get Rid Of Your Old Jeans For A Good Cause

We know you own a lot of denim. So when you tire of those blue jeans, don’t just throw them in the trash. Gap recognized the fact that many people own multiple pairs of jeans, which adds up to a huge waste. So, in an effort to reduce and reuse, the brand teamed up with…

Pierre Hardy For Gap: Is The Third Time The Charm?

When the first pair of Pierre Hardy shoes for Gap launched, I rushed to the store, assuming that I’d be in love and willing to part with almost $100 for said designer shoes. But I left Gap that day sans new shoes, dejected and disappointed at the collection. Then, editors obsessed over the fur-lined boot…

Has Feminism Gone Too Far?

You know, I understand there was a time in history when the word “feminism” meant something. Women fought to win equal rights. And some 50 years later, great strides have been made. Recently, it seems like old-school feminism has returned. This time around, though, it seems like all the political action is gone,…

Our friends over at Refinery 29 usually have pretty impeccable taste, but this headline, “New Pierre Hardy for Gap Shoes Send Us Into Cardiac Arrest, Almost,” gave us pause. When Amelia sent me the link, I was practically salivating: This shiz is gonna be AH-MAY-ZING! (I had plenty of time to anticipate this due to…

Rumor: Uniqlo Taking Over Gap?

It’s no secret that the Gap has been struggling in recent years to keep up profits and keep the attention of buyers. The denim giant may be doing worse than we thought because rumors have begun circulating that Uniqlo is considering purchasing the business.
