Mind The Gap

Today I did some browsing around the Gap store on the North Side of Chicago, and discovered what might just be my new scent! This picture isn't of it, but it's the same category of body spray/perfume in a scent called Love Shack. I wasn't really looking for a new body spray/perfume, so I didn't get to check how much it was, but I loved the smell. It's a light, slightly floral/fruity perfume, so it might be too girly for some people...but it definitely wasn't overpowering. I kind of regret not picking it up, since I've been running low on perfume and since it's not available online (which is a sign that they may be discontinuing it).

I also tried on a couple of things, all conveniently in varying shades of grey.

First, there was this adorable pair of flats...but I'm not completely sure about them, which is why I didn't immediately spring for them. Maybe if they go on sale later, I'll get a pair, but for now these $24.99 flats will just remain on my "awww, that's cute!" list.

This dress is also surprisingly adorable. The satin part is "fringed" with little tiny pom-pomish things, but they're so tiny that they just look like really cool detail. Unfortunately it was $34.99, which is more than I'm willing to spend on an everyday dress right now, but it was pretty flattering...despite what the picture may suggest. And I'm 5'2", so finding a flattering dress with a slouchy shape is usually pretty hard.

Finally, this sweater is on my "love" list. I tried it on in the colour in the picture, and while it's essentially a basic sweater I'm kind of in love with it. The fit is perfect, the buttons add a bit of interest, and it's unbelievably soft. It's kind of like an affordable version of cashmere. I probably wouldn't spend $38.00 on a sweater right now, but I might revisit it later when sales start to pop up.
