Dear GAP,
Why are your sizes so awkwardly off? I am not a 0. I am not a 00. This skirt is a 0 and its hugemongous. Please return your sizes to normal. I would really appreciate it, because now I'll just be depressed next time I pull a size 6 off a normal store's rack.
Love,
K
F21 tunic as a top, Gap skirt (thank goodness for gift certificates because this skirt is the most perfect shade of blue I have ever seen in my life)
Also, how had I never read Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli? I can't put it down.
The best thing about sushi is leftovers. You can unselfconsciously stuff it in your mouth, pull it apart, and splash your soy sauce without thinking that the waitress is laughing at your terrible table manners.

  1. Love sushi. It looks so good. I want some now.

    That sizing sounds so weird, but that skirt is really pretty. Definitely the most perfect shade of blue ever.

  2. I remember Star Girl! It was one of the books we all read when we were 12 and fell in love with and then our teachers made us read it for middle school English, which usually ruins a book, but it was still fantastic!

    gah, sizing is so weird everywhere! The biggest problem I have is H&M & Topshop running small and Gap running large

  3. DKNY does the same thing. I know it's called "psychological sizing" and while it's intention is to flatter, it kind of bums me out. Because I can't tell if anything will fit me based on stated size.

    Wish we'd be like men, and size things in inches. Because my rather thick 32' waist stays the same regardless of what store I shop in.
