I’m the first person to admit I don’t go to mall stores. It’s not often I find a bunch of pieces I like at places like the GAP, but while at NorthPark a few weeks back, I decided to stop in for a peek. As you’ve seen on my SnapChat (username: merrittbeck), I’ve had difficulty finding denim I like lately. I feel like the fabric is getting thinner and thinner – anyone else? I ordered several pairs of white jeans from Shopbop recently and they were all super sheer. I also really love the look of raw-hem jeans, but each pair I order is shorter than the last! It’s disappointing!
Anyway, I saw a denim jacket I liked in the window at GAP and popped in. I discovered an array of great denim styles, so I grabbed a few pairs and hit the dressing room. Much to my surprise, I found a pair of raw-hem skinnies that don’t look like high-waters on me, AND the perfect pair of distressed blue jeans. I was elated! Both pairs are under $100 too, and you really can’t beat that. I’ve been l-i-v-i-n-g in this pair. I’m actually wearing them as I type this post. They are so comfortable and don’t feature the crazy stretchy fabric you’re starting to see everywhere, so they don’t stretch out when you’re wearing them.
Needless to say I’m pleased with my recent experience at the GAP. I highly recommend checking out their latest denim – it’s all great!
