Ode to the Gap

The Gap has been a cornerstone of my style, since as long as I have cared about fashion. I never really gave it much thought before, however the Gap has been there for me for so many fashion milestones over the years.

Though my love of the Gap goes deeper than the clothes, it's one of the few places I shop where the employees are always genuinely nice and extremely helpful.

In the case of this leather jacket, I bought it online because I had gotten a 30% off coupon and figured I probably would not be able to get a better deal. Of course the day after I order it I get 50% off coupon in the mail. When the jacket arrived I decided to go to the store and ask if perhaps I could return it and then re-buy it with the new coupon. Turns out I didn't even need to go into the store, a call to customer service was all that was needed to get a price adjustment.

Gap is pretty awesome. And so is my $150 genuine leather jacket.

    After that "conversation" we had I actually got me a vintage Carolina Herrera ;) You're bad influence.

  17. The jacket is fantastic on you, love it!

  18. Well shopped! I have to say, when it comes to fairness in customer service, Gap can't be beat. Unfortunately I find their sizing doesn't work that well for me anymore but there was a time when I never shopped anywhere else and the price/quality ratio is really good. Plus, genuine leather for $150? Can't be beat! I know you're going to style this jacket in so many wonderful ways as the season goes on :)

  19. I am also a big fan of Gap for similar reasons and this leather jacket is amazing - I want one!

    I had a very similar experience at Gap in London last time I went. I had a 30% off coupon for ONE item after signing up for their email service, and guess what the employee did? He said they had a 50% off for signing up that had ended the day before, but he actually gave me the 50% on the TWO items I took home with me that day.

    Gap rules.
