Outfit of the day: Gap tie dye dress



Outfit Details:

dress - Gap, cardigan - PURE by Alfred Sung (Zellers), tights - Joe Fresh, boots - Frye, necklace - Forever 21

If you've been following my blog, you probably know what a Gap fan girl I became over the fall and winter seasons.  The reason is a two-fer:

1) I think Gap has totally stepped up their style, and a lot of their items have been resonating with me.

2) Their sales have been epic the last several months. EPIC. They might be spoiling me for all other sales (40% off? meh... that's no bargain), but as long as they keep it up, I'll be a life long customer.

So I was a bit surprised when I realized that I hadn't made a purchase from there in well over 2 1/2 months. I have a few things on my wish list (like wideleg jeans), but no item or sale was enticing me into the store.  Until this weekend that is. Their new mobile campaign brought me into the store despite a cold and a preschooler in tow.

One of the items that followed me home is this tie dye print dress.  I think it has kind of an abstract snake print, but done in a girly-fied way (flutter sleeves and flowy cotton fabric).  I paired it with a bold necklace (amazing find from my first in-store Forever 21 trip in 3 years) and cognac accessories.

Oh that is a cute dress! The print is very nice. I have been impressed with Gap things as well. They keep on dropping off coupons at my work too, so that does not help lol. I agree, when they have sales lately they have been good (as far as Canadian retail sale). Silk sleeveless shirt for $9? Yes please :)
