Gap - July

Last weekend I stopped briefly at the Gap to see what's new. I had stopped on a couple of occasions in the past, but each time, the items I was interested in had already been sold out. This time I was a bit luckier. I really wanted to try on a couple of dresses. One of them was the Eyelet Shift Dress size S and 'true black.' It has two lateral pockets and is fully lined. The hem is about 2 inches, but I would just go for a Tall size instead. I really liked this dress and looks nicer in real life.

The Sweater Hoodie in 'oyster,' size S. The cotton is really soft to the touch and liked the hood.

Another sweater I liked a lot is the Cable Step-Hem Sweater in 'charcoal heather,' size S again. This is my favourite shade of grey, but it also comes in a lighter shade, as well as four other colours. The skirt is the Rugby Skirt in 'gray stripe' and size M. There was no S to try on and M is sitting lower on my hips. I liked both 'gray' and 'black' stripe this skirt comes in.

Lastly, my favourite piece: the Rugby Short-Sleeve Maxi Dress, size S and 'black stripe.' The knit is a cotton and modal mix, with a bit of spandex. This is a great dress, and I like it almost just as much as the J. Crew dress I tried on here.

Here's what else I lie at the Gap right now:
How about you? Have you been to the Gap lately? What did you think of their stock?

Have a great Wednesday, everyone!

Silk Stars & Seamed Matelasse

The other day I received the Seamed Matelasse Skirt in 'black' and this is how I plan on wearing it. I have tried the 'navy' version on here before. The Silk Star Blouse in 'sandy reef' was an absolute bargain in the store during the 50% off sale items promo. It's one of the colours that apeal to me, and the star print makes just a bit more fun to wear.

C. Wonder New Arrivals Picks

Last week I got a notice regarding the C. Wonder new arrivals and I managed to take a look through it earlier today. The theme of this new launch is 'Take A Walk On The Wild Side.' There are several cute animal motifs, featuring elephants, camels, zebras and giraffes. Printed Signature Tote in the 'saffron/latte' is my favourite:
I also liked the Cotton Bee Happy Embroidered Intarsia Sweater:
Silk Marching Camels Shirt in 'saffron' is my colour, but it also comes in a 'dusty olive' or 'ecru' backgrounds.

Shirred Double Layer Sleeveless Dress is made from a rayon/spandex mix, perfect for the summer.

Same idea in the Shirred Double Layer Crewneck Tee. This one comesin four different colours:

Lastly, a few bracelets. I liked the Camel Caravan as well as the Elephant Charms bracelets, but the Enamel Printed Bangle has to be the top favourite:

Do you like animal themes in general? Have you checked the C. Wonder website lately? What did you think?  

Hope you had a restful weekend, and have a great Monday, everyone!
