With all the amazing 30-40% promos at GAP, Banana Republic & Old Navy, I’ve been doing a LOT of online ordering. Some of the items are DEFINITE keepers – others will be going back, but I thought I’d share their “fitting room review” photos anyway, in case anyone else was thinking of ordering them.
|GAP 1969 Camo Front Zip Always Skinny Jeans / Minkoff bag / ZARA necklace|
These 1969 Camo Front Zip Always Skinny Jeans are definitely staying. I think GAP will be my new go-to source for denim…even on sale their jeans are pricey BUT their material is very thick and sucks me in – definitely worth paying up for!
|Old Navy Sequined Sweatshirt / Old Navy Fox Graphic Sweater|
Old Navy has a lot of cute sweaters & sweatshirts this fall- their sequined sweatshirts are reminiscent of J.Crew’s beaded sweatshirts at a fraction of the cost! And I’ve been seeing their fox graphic sweater EVERYWHERE – it’s adorable! I’m trying to decide which of these 3 I should keep – right now I’m leaning towards the grey sweatshirt.
|Red Floral Long-Sleeved Wrap Dress / Red Print Crepe Shift Dress / Pink Stripe Long-Sleeved Wrap Dress / Navy Blue Cap-Sleeved Wrap Dress.|
I ordered a variety of Old Navy dresses to try on. Pictured from left to right are the Red Floral Long-Sleeved Wrap Dress, Red Print Crepe Shift Dress, Pink Stripe Long-Sleeved Wrap Dress and Navy Blue Cap-Sleeved Wrap Dress. After trying them on, I only really like the long-sleeved wrap dresses – I’m definitely keeping the striped one – I think it would look great in the fall with black boots. I kind of wish I had ordered the Black Birds Wrap Dress too- it’s a timeless classic!
|BR Flared Trench / GAP Classic Trench / BR Outlet Trench|
And finally a quick note about trench coats – I ordered the GAP classic trench to compare to the Banana Republic Flared Trench. Although they’re both XS, the BR trench seems slimmer and more fitted around the shoulder and chest. I prefer the color of the GAP trench but the BR one is made of higher quality material. The picture on the right is one I took at the BR outlet – this trench was less than $80 and it fit perfectly (I loved the design and the tortoise-shell buttons) – but the material was very wrinkle prone and the stitching wasn’t that great (it had loose threads). If I could design the perfect trench coat, it would have the design of the BR Factory coat, the color of the GAP one and the luxe fabric of the BR Flared trench…am I being too picky?
Help me decide – which sweater & dress should I keep?
