Label Love: The Gap

It was 1987. I was just entering the 7th grade and I was a sucker for everything Reebok and Gap. I was a tiny little yuppie in training. While my love for Ronald Reagan and hi-top aerobic sneakers in every color of the rainbow waned, my love of the Gap did not. I still love the Gap.

Fairytale Fantasy

Lately, I’m being drawn to these romantic, ethereal with an edge sort of styles. Kind of a mix of Victorian England with some 70’s Gunne Sax, a splash of 90’s babydoll grunge, a pinch of 80’s New Romantic and topped with some Laura Ashley. It could be side effects from binge watching three seasons of Once Upon a Time lately. I am sooooo smitten with the fantasy.
