Check Out This Interview With Amelia On Gap’s Blog!

This week, a friend of mine from college interviewed me for Gap’s blog about my style and how I would transition a work outfit into something I’d wear to a holiday party. With Gap’s permission, I’m reprinting the interview and the before and after photos here. Enjoy! — Amelia

Party season is i…

I Have A Big Butt, But I Found A Pair Of Skinny Jeans That Fit

You know that line in Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back,” where he goes, “I like big butts and I cannot lie”? Well, I have a big butt and I cannot lie. I’ve always had a big butt. Ever since I can remember. To be clear, it’s not like I have trouble getting through doorways, but…

Malia Obama Shops At The Gap

Malia Obama, seen here exiting the musical “Memphis” on Broadway with sister Sasha, seems to have rejected the stodgy way of dressing in D.C. for a kick-ass wardrobe. Peep her Gap Denim Biker Jacket and studded motorcycle boots. And her plaid tunic completes the look. [NYC, 3/21/10]…

The Gap, Completely Turned Upside Down

Did April Fool’s Day come early or something? While it would have been nice to get that out of the way, this Gap store turned upside down is a prank of its own doing. As part of some quirky marketing for its new loyalty program called Sprize, a Vancouver branch was completely flipped around. (Those…

Wearing Kids’ Clothes—Wrong Or Clever?

So, turns out adults have been chasing after Stella McCartney‘s new Gap Kids collection. Maybe it was Grazia magazine who put the idea into people’s heads that they could wear the line after its staffers put a video online of them trying on looks from the collection (and yes, the skinny ladies did fit into…

The Gap Has A New Perfume!

Usually, I go to The Gap for staple pieces. But Patrick Robinson is revitalizing the brand with must-have items, like the newest Pierre Hardy boots. Those are majorly swoon-worthy. Now, he’s introducing a brand-new perfume to the store called Close.

Created with perfume house Givaudan, the new fragrance is a mix of salty…

Gap Body Makes The Best T-Shirts In The History Of Mankind

Gap Body’s new T-shirts are probably the best I’ve ever encountered in my life. I’ve gone fancy, forking over as much as $110 for a simple tee in the hopes that it would hug my body and make me feel complete. Things always went well at first, with the v-neck laying just so. Then everything…

Remember When Gap Was The Bomb? They May Be Back!

For years now, it seems the Gap has struggled to keep up with competitors like H&M and Topshop, which have painted themselves as class-to-the-masses retailers. Yet despite several image-changing attempts such as its collaboration with Colette last year, this year’s launch of an affordable luxury denim line, and a disappointing Pierre Hardy shoe collection, the…

Crave: Gap Striped Lounge Leggings

We love shopping for “lounge clothes” — you know, the duds you throw on the second you walk in your pad after a long day at work. Lounge clothes are different than pajamas because, in theory, you could go outside in them and not look like you just busted out of a mental institution. These…

The Gap Ganks Its Latest Ad Campaign From American Apparel

The hilarious part of this is that a quick glance at this new Gap ad will only send interested customers running to the rival they ripped off. (In fairness, they did add a dash of Calvin Klein, circa the Brooke Shields days.) Back to the drawing board! [AdWeek via Scanner]…

Spotted! The Michelle Obama Clothes Line

Sure, she knows a thing or two about high-end designers (Jason Wu, anyone?), but that doesn’t mean First Lady Michelle Obama doesn’t wear less pricey ones. Her love of The Gap and J.Crew is well-documented and she recently wore both at the cover shoot for a new magazine, Children’s Health. The makeup artist on set,…

Crave: Fur-trimmed Parka

We’ve finally had to admit that it’s cold outside and our sweater coat will no longer keep us warm. We spent this weekend looking for the perfect coat. You know, a coat that is stylish and substantial enough to keep us toasty on blustery days, but not so thick that we’ll look like Frosty the…

Cheapskate: Not-So-Basic Finds At The Gap

Every year or so, there’s something really cute and cool that I want at The Gap. But right now, with their current Fall line, I want a whole lot more than one thing — and in these rough economic times, it’s nice to crave silly items that are at least affordable. After the jump, six…

The Gap Is Bringing Romance Back

I’m the type of shopper who walks into a Gap and sees through the basic necessities to the wonderful fashion possibilities. In fact the last time The Gap had an item that I HAD to have was last year. I’m sure you remember the ruffle-front shirt dress that was all over ads last summer. Well,…

Crave: Artsy Fartsy T-Shirts For Cheap

The Gap has joined forces with the venerable Whitney Museum to design a line of t-shirts celebrating the Whitney Biennial. The t-shirt above is not from that collection — it’s from Uniqlo, a Japanese chain that’s similar to The Gap. See, the Gap t-shirts are retailing for $28, but Uniqlo’s line of T’s with influential…
