beating the system…

So as I have already said… I LOVE a bargain… So last night I headed over to Gap to get a black cardigan. Somehow my black cardy got stuck under the washer and the button was violently ripped out. It was sad, of course. What is more sad is that I pretty much wear a cardigan every day – and suddenly I found myself black cardigan-less. TRAVESTY.

I headed into Gap knowing I was also going to be checking out their Real Straight jeans – they are THE BEST! Plus, secretly, I wanted to try on the Legging Jeans. See I have been a HUGE anti-pajama jean advocate ever since I saw those original commercials. But Meg swears by them and I wanted to try them on… well other than the fact that I’m pretty sure I tore my ACL trying to get them on – I kind of loved them. But the term “Pajama Jeans” was hovering over my head and alas I could not bring myself to purchase them. However, they DID have these fantastic Real Straight jeans in black. I had to get two sizes bigger than regular jeans… (weird)… but they were SO COMFORTABLE – almost pajama jean comfortable. I was hoping they were on sale, but they were not. 😦 I couldn’t bring myself to pay $70 for them considering I actually do not have a salary.

I could, however, convince myself for the need of that adorable striped tunic, so I got it, the wide-leg pants (but in a houndstooth), and the cardigan I originally went in for.

Then I came home to check online to see if there was some sort of coupon code I could get the jeans with and I realized that both the jeans AND tunic were massively on sale – What the What?! So I ordered them (free shipping) and am going to return the tunic to save some money! What I think is strange is that the ladies looked up both of these things to see if they had a certain size – and neither mentioned them being on sale online – I am over that though because they were SUPER sweet and helped me a lot.

So lesson learned, that is why we have iPhones people!

Happy Gap-ing!

    but seriously. im pretty sure i tore my acl trying to fit my thighs into that sausage casing of a pant.

    the real straights felt like pajama jeans – but because they weren’t – i felt better about my purchase. 🙂

    I’m so glad you started posting on your site again! It gives me something to do when I’m trying to avoid homework (and I’m assuming it is giving you something to do to avoid studying) 🙂 Anyway, I have a video of Jackson singing Bruno Mars that you need to see ASAP. See you in Florida soon!!!!
