the dressing room diaries: the gap

So I've been shopping a lot lately. So what? Joe's out of town. I'm lonely.

I arrived at the Gap in my own clothes: chambray Built By Wendy top, black Paper Denim and Cloth jeans, Kragh Rosenberg bag, and A.P.C. mocs.

I tried on this dress and did a curtsy. Because I'm a lady. The dress is only available online because it's from the European collection, but I guess somebody returned one to the store. It was huge on me, but I really liked it. I'm not usually into tiered styles, but the beautiful linen fabric grabbed my attention right away. I would have never even considered buying this online had I not seen it in the store. When I got home I ordered the dress from the website in a size 4 (the one I tried on was a 10), and it was only 25 bucks! There are several dresses from the European collection on sale for around that same price here. They're pretty cute and as cheap as a dress from Target but better quality. Just to give you an idea about the European collection's sizing, I am normally a Wiksten size 6.

I'm sorry that I'm such an enabler. Note to self: stop spending so much money on clothes and start saving up for a decent camera!

I didn't even scroll down past the first dress you posted. And I ended up buying that blue plaid sundress. Thank you, enabler.

i have this dress as well. i fell in love with its simplicity and lightness that it gives in summer.

it's fun to wear even with slim jeans!
