Gap Haul

Saturday, 23 May 2015

 Today I have a little Gap Haul

One of the reasons I love shopping at Gap is that they always seem to be having a sale.... and today was no exception! 

I was originally just going to have a little browse but once I heard that all regular priced items were 40% off I thought it was the perfect opportunity to buy a new summer outfit! (What can I say? I'm very opportunistic ;) )

The first thing I spotted was the hat since I was already planning on buying one. Then I saw the jeans and the blouse and I thought why not? It all fit and looked nice and I walked out of the store with a complete outfit for 40% off in less than 30 minutes!

That's a second reason I love shopping at Gap...It can be a one stop shop for a complete outfit! I say, "can be," because I haven't always been so fortunate but more often than not I am!

I think Gap is often a place people forget if they're not looking to buy some basic pieces, but I would definitely recommend checking it out if you have the time. Especially while this sale is on!

What's your favourite place to shop?

The Perfect Summer Dress

Wednesday, 20 May 2015

I've found my perfect summer dress

I would love to say that I found this dress after scouring countless stores in relentless pursuit of the perfect summer dress. In all honesty, however, finding this dress was much more of a right place, right time, right price, right dress situation.

This gorgeous dress is by Diane von Furstenberg. However, I did not find it in a fancy-shmancy department store (of course not!). No, I was at Marshall's, of all places, buying socks with my brother (oh, the glamour!). 

I had been eyeing the dress since we walked in the store. The dress was on display by itself in the shoe section (a very odd place for it to be in Marshall's) and every time I walked by I could not help but stare at it. When my brother and I were finally in line to pay for his socks I started to think that I could not leave without at least trying it on. I walked over to the dress snatched it right off its display hanger and walked straight to the fitting rooms to try it on (ha ha, I was a total woman on a mission!). 

I tried it on and, to my absolute joy and excitement, it fit perfectly. 

What happened next was fairly typical. I bought the dress (of course). Brought it home, tried it on and did some obligatory twirls.

I'm sure I'll be wearing this dress all summer long!
