Take It Or Leave It ~ Gap Style

When I enter a store my eye is immediately drawn to the displays. I rarely just got to the racks and start digging through. I like to take the easy way out and just buy the outfit. Unfortunately for me it doesn't always work out the way I would like. After all what size are those mannequins anyway?!!

My mother tends to shop the same way so for years we have been playing this game we call “Take It Or Leave It”. Here’s how it works . . . grab a shopping buddy and head to your favorite store. Find a display you love then recreate the look in your size. Turn to your shopping buddy and simply say, “take it or leave it”. Then trust their judgment!

Now I’m inviting you to be my shopping buddy! Here’s this week’s selection:


Striped unstructured blazer
Bleecker tank
Sunkissed shorts

What do you think . . . should I “Take It Or Leave It”?


  1. This one is actually pretty cute and something I wouldn't have thought to work but it really does!

  2. I kind of like this one. Good pieces that can be used with other ensembles.

  3. Because you are tiny, and I would go with a coordinating shirt to the shorts. The outfit looks fine but I think the mono chrome base would work well. (Make your pictures the width of you blog, it's more interesting). Great feature. I think you could get your readers addicted!
