Last week, I came home from work to a great package from Gap! Just when I was in the market for a new, cool denim jacket - Gap came through. You may remember the Born to Fit parties and contest I posted about last year - well, here's more awesome design out of Gap.
It's got that trendy faded thing going on and it's thin enough for (most) summer days. The jacket totally adds some casual style points to a summer dress...
Ever since I received the jacket, I'd been dying to use it in an outfit - all outfits! - since I do love layering. However, New York has been ridiculously humid and hot. To the point that I would have a slick of sweat on me the moment I stepped outside. I know. Gross.
Luckily, yesterday the humidity had lifted, I came home from work to find a non-sweating husband, and we decided to celebrate by getting sushi and semi-stalking the movie filming on our street (it stars Zooey Deschanel and Paul Rudd, go figure!). It was also the first time that I could wear my new Gap denim jacket! I was very excited. Jesse obligingly caught me in the act of my sartorial happiness, and I didn't crack a sweat!
It's cute, am I right? I like scrunching the sleeves up a little. What do you think?
I also heard about an iPad app for Gap called 1969 Stream, and after making Jesse download it to his own marvelous device, I was stoked to see that my first blog post about Born to Fit Jeans was featured on the main page! SEE:
It's a free app that allows you to check out a bunch of celebs in Gap, other Born to Fit bloggers, Tweets about Gap, a Gap locator, and probably the most dangerous feature: you can shop directly. Looking through the clothes so easily was pretty tempting! I know where to turn for future retail therapy via the couch!
Finally, tomorrow I'll be throwing a little contest for one of you readers to get yourself some Gap denim for free! Check back tomorrow for details and how to win!
(Full disclosure: they sent me this bit of sweetness for free, but it's not like I had to blog about it, or, rave about it, OR hold a contest so that one of my readers could win some of their own denim!)
