Swinging in Solitude

stripe8

I'm not sure why I never shop at Gap.  It might sound stupid but I pretty much associate that store with jeans.  As someone who lives in dresses, jeans are never a selling point.  I did go in however while shopping with my husband.  He was looking for new jeans and I spotted this gorgeous dress on the sale rack by the dressing rooms.  It was originally seventy dollars and was on clearance for twenty.  I can never pass a good deal and I happened to find it "almost" in my size.  As a nearly exclusive online shopper I tend to buy things without ever trying them on...  Even if I'm in a store.  Luckily this dress fit perfectly when I tried it on at home.  It was meant to be!

Dress- Gap (similar)
Belt- from another dress
Shoes- UrbanOG
Tights- H&M
Bag- Vintage

I've been doing a massive clothing purge this week.  There are many pieces I just don't wear anymore and I'd like to have a little more space in there.  I've been slowly adding these items to my store if anyone is interested in shopping my closet.  I think of all places my closet was in need of a spring cleaning.  Everything else in my home is obsessive compulsively cleaned by my husband on a weekly basis.  I'm absolutely aware that I picked a good one ;).

Speaking of Kevin, he and my brothers are going away to Vegas this weekend.  It's my brother's bachelor party and they've planned a night involving a Tool concert and lots gambling/drinking.  It will be my first night alone with the baby so I invited my sister and my soon to be sister in law for a girl's night in.  Not sure what we have planned but it will probably be low key.  Can't get too crazy with Bianca at my side!

  2. I love that dress. What a great deal!

    I'm like you, I rarely shop there. Mind you I've given up shopping most retail except for Anthropologie and sometimes ModCloth or Ruche. I'm trying to buy most items consignment or thrift now.

    I really like that little bow belt. And your hair is looking fine!

    Have fun with the girls. Maybe watch that movie I recommended on Netflix..."Only You" : )

  4. Can't go wrong with a striped dress :) And omg just looked through your store...I'm not usually in love with most shop my closet sales (which is good I guess because my sizing is difficult) but with yours I'm sooooo tempted!

  6. I love scoring awesome deals like the one you got on this dress. I find it hard to pass them up too. And this is definitely a quality dress, especially since it seems like it can be remixed many different ways! It was a lucky find. :)

  7. Ha! I do most of my shopping online (I dislike dressing rooms, but still end up using them if shopping in person. Things never fit me right...)

    You look darling and I like the red belt. Hope the ladies' night in is fun!

  8. That dress is so cute on you! I only go into Gap every once in a while for the same reason but was shocked when I found the floral version of that dress!

  9. That dress is gorgeous!! I don't think I've ever actually bought anything from Gap, I associate it with jeans pricier than I'd like to pay for jeans. :P

  12. Aww your girls' night in sounds like it's going to be fun- I love cozy nights in like that! And seriously, I feel the same shock you do about Gap. Last week I went to Old Navy and wanted to buy them CLEAN. I've always been a snob about Old Navy, thinking only middle aged moms shop there haha how wrong I was.

  15. i love the simple black and white stripes on this dress, so great w/ the red pumps. and ah, girls nights in are the best, i swear you'll even have more fun than the guys, or at least I would : ). spring cleanings are wonderful as well, i'll have to do one of those soon & not keep it to the last minute when i move.
