Gap - March

I haven't stopped by the Gap in what seemed a very long time, but their latest arrivals tempted me to finally do so. I was happy to see they had the Henley Drawstring Dress in store. The favourite colour 'bordeaux' was missing in my size, so I tried on the 'deep true navy.' This dress is cotton/rayon 60/40 and fits TTS on me (size S).

The other dress I liked from the new arrivals was the Eyelet-Stripe Fit & Flare Dress. I am wearing size 4 and 'true black' below. Would love it if it were a couple of inches longer on me and if it were less tight across the shoulders. I could barely do the zipper up on this dress.

Stripe Slit Maxi Skirt (size M, navy stripe) seemed to be very popular with the young crowd when I was in the store. I sized up one size as the S seemed a bit too narrow. This skirt is all cotton and would be a great addition to the summer or vacation wardrobe.

Lastly, also a favourite, the Leather Tote Crossbody in a bright orange colour called 'lettermen orange' which doesn't seem to be available on the website any longer. The tote is not lined and seems quite roomy.

That's about it for now. Have you been to the Gap lately? Did you find any great deals? Please share!

Thank you for stopping by here and have a great Thursday, everyone!

Madewell New Arrivals Picks

Early this morning I received an e-mail from Madewell about their new arrivals but I didn't have a chance to check them out until now. This cotton/linen Raglan Crop Top in Honeycomb Floral seemed to have an interesting pattern and colours.

I loved the side-tie detail of the Chambray Side-Tie Crop Tee:

Ruffle Bodice Sundress  is made of a cotton & silk, crinkled fabric:

Lastly, this Wirestack Cuff Bracelet is calling my name since I am a big cuff bracelet fan:

J. Crew - March (II)

I have a few photos from my last week's trip to J. Crew. One of the favourites from the new arrivals was the Pleated Chiffon T-Shirt Dress (size 4, navy). I am 5'6" and this dress falls more than 2 inches above the knee on me. Size 4 fits large, so I would probably size down one size in this. On my feet you can see the Marlow Mules (size 8, seashore beige). They fit TTS, are quite comfortable, and I liked these a lot.

Another pleated dress is the Chevron Pleated Dress (size 4, vintage peri). This dress is lined and is all cotton. It fits TTS on me, but I found the front to be too low cut for me.

Slim Cargo Pant (size 4, coal grey). I loved these new cargo pants at J. Crew because they have a bit of stretch. The flap back pockets are also flattering.

The other cargo pants are the Skinny Stretch Cargo (size 28, pesto). They are a cotton/lyocell/elasthane mix and much more stretchy than the cargos above. I prefer the Slim Cargo Pant  for myself. The top is the Embroidered Colorblock Tee (size S, heather black ivory). It's all cotton and has a slightly loose fit.
