Good Abs At The Gap

I will never forget the first pair of jeans I bought from Gap.  It was my sophomore year of High School and the “long & lean’s” were my cut (which is ironic because I was neither long nor lean.)  I had a kind of uniform that year.  I wore my long and leans stiletto boots and either a turtleneck, jean jacket or something cashmere I got on clearance.  I was 16 going on 25 and slightly delusional. To this day I can’t find a pair of jeans that fit quite like the long a leans circa 2001.

On a recent shopping trip I decided to give Gap the good old college try.  So I crashed a Sigma Chi/ Alpha Gamma Delta mixer, got “piss’d in the brook” and made my way to a mall.  A little thrown off by “piss’d in the brook??”  I was looking up synonyms for inebriated and I came across a list of Ben Franklin’s 200+ Synonyms for “drunk” as published in the Pennsylvania Gazette January 6, 1737.  Here are a few of my other favorites: Owes no Man a Farthing, Sir Richard has taken off his Considering Cap, Juicy, Smelt of an Onion, Wasted his Paunch.  Getting hosed sounded way more classy in the 1700’s!  Anyway, as I was saying I gave Gap a try and I found some great pieces to share with you.

The  elusive proper fitting harem pant.  I feel a little like Jasmine in these but I have to admit they are actually pretty chic.  Gap calls them a Jersey Jogger Pants $49.95 but I think that names a little misleading.  I’ve paired them with this simple Twist Tank $19.95.

Today’s photos can only be described as a visual violation.  I know what you’re thinking “I thought that was last week?!”)  Well, if possible these are the worst ones yet!  I actually had more Gap finds to show you but I felt like everyone needed a break from the tragedy that is my “photography”.

  1. The white tank has a really nice fit. It is a cute look!
    If Ben came up with 200+ synonyms back then, I wonder how many there are today.

    1. You would look good in one of those tanks mom!
      I can think of a few more synonyms…. (;
