My recent purchase: Gap and Gossip

Happy Friday, everyone!

How was your week? Is it just me or did this week feel like it went by slowly?

I mentioned way back that I bought some stuff from Gap and a little store called Gossip - here are the pictures now. ;) So really, this isn't very recent, but I would still like to share them with you.

A few months back, I told my Mom that I wanted to get shirts to wear for school. You know, for those days when you just want to wear jeans and a shirt? So we went to Forever21 (of course, haha!), but they didn't really have many shirts. I was just about to give up - good thing we decided to check the Gap store. :D


On the day we went there, there was a sale going on!



These two were originally $24.50 ---> reduced to $10!


This V-neck shirt is originally $16.50 ---> reduced to $10!

Then we went to a store called Gossip - there's one in Santa Barbara, the other one is in Pasadena.


They have really cute and affordable items - clothes, shoes, bags, accessories. If you ever find yourself in Santa Barbara and Pasadena, definitely check this store out. :)

I got these:





These are $5.99 each.

During the summer, I wore them with shorts or sometimes jeans. They are also long enough to wear with leggings or tights - just throw on a blazer and a scarf. :D

Oh, and another NOTD:


Sinful Colors -- Forget Now

I hate how I always forget to take pictures right after I paint my nails a new color, so I never get a photo of nicely painted nails, haha. ;)

More shopping posts soon! :D

Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Hi Mimi! I like the first top from Gap, the one with the...was it a zipper on the back? I don't have a 20/20 haha. Black and Grey yey! And the V-neck...I think I have that one, in exact same color! Gap shirts are very comfy I love them!

  4. This week was excruciatingly slow! Great basic tops!


  5. super cute basics !

    you know what would look cute with it ? a big bow brooch, you can hang it around the neck of a basic top and it makes it look fabulous :)

  6. Gap always has great basic tops! Cute nail polish colour!

  7. Those tanks are pretty and it's great that you can wear them with leggings! I often struggle to find a decent top to pair with my leggings -_-

  8. i love sales, these are great for layering!
    come follow xoxo

  20. Hi there! thanks for the follow :) I will have to look for that Gossip store next time I am in PAsadena. I just had a shopping trip to JCREW (in pasadena) and I got so lucky with great sales.

    Like you I have been really into nail polish this season.. Loving the Sally Hansen manicure in a bottle in Commander in Chic and also obsessed with the taupes.

    Have a great weekend!

  21. Love everything! Have you seen the latest controversy with the GAP's new logo?

  22. Great pieces! Love the nail polish too! Have a great weekend xoxo

  23. Cute, I really like the tank tops with the adorable pocket. I really like the Gap, most of the time! I was quite upset when they took it out of the mall here.

  26. oh, don't you just love going shopping on sale day?you get good deals on stuff you will not usually buy on its regular price. :p
