My Shopping Reunion

So today was a pretty quiet day, just hung out with some fam and went to pick up my contacts. I went to pick them up only to practice putting them in and out, because last time I was sitting in the place for the two most miserable hours of my life. Afterwards I looked like I was on drugs, because my eyes were so red and sore. Horribly not-fun, but Im really hoping I can get better because glasses do get annoying from time to time.

Yesterday though I did go shopping, it was so long overdue, after my no-shopping vacation I was in serious withdrawal. The mall didn't seem to be as exciting to me as it once was, perhaps the new fall stuff hasn't quite arrived? I dont know, anyone else feel this way? I was rather impressed by The Gap though, after seeing spreads of their new fall collection(featured a few posts down), I was kind of excited. A few years ago I wouldn't have ever really payed attention to Gap, but this time I made probably one of my first real purchases. Its a seriously soft sweater, that I made oversized by getting it in xl, can't wait to wear it on those freezing cold days! But don't worry Im not saying I want the serious cold days quite yet! As Im sure you all know, Richard Chai for Target also came out yesterday, pretty excited to check that out, theres a couple things I've already seen in some magazines that caught my eye.
Also as I was trying on a pair of heels, my mom mentioned to me that she thought jeans and heels were somewhat trashy.. *gasp* mom =o. This doesn't work to well since I happen to love the look of denim and heels, how shall I ever convince mom my way!?

Now back to gap, I also loved their fall/winter 08 ads, am I the only one who finds these much more appealing than usual? I also think Im falling love with black and white all over again. II think I love Clemence and Julia's photos the best, but like I said before I do like all of them =) Oh yeahh and um who is that dude?? (Hugh Dancy as the photo states) Never heard of him.. but uh he's pretty cute haha ;)

Those ads are fabulous! It's about time the Gap spiced things up. Did you hear about the fashion night at the Gap on Robson? I mentioned it on my blog here: http://www.civilizedspice.com/2008/08/05/who-likes-free-food/
Oh... and I believe Hugh Dancy is in the film Evening. Great film...

I love this campaign and their stuff lately ... I keep on going back to the Gap store for the comfy tops :)

oh my gosh, i loved those gap ads. they were actually extremely fashion-y, and it was cool that they used models like lily donaldson and chanel iman in them. their oversized pants and sweaters paired with boots and scarves with messy hair and other variations are simply to die for and very fashion forward for a pretty commercial place like the Gap.
also, i buy things in larger sizes to give them a slouchy, too-big, loose look, which i love for fall and winter.

OH NOES! I am anonymous! But yes, just wanted to tell you that hugh Dancy was in Ella Enchanted =]

And I really love seeing Clemence's pictures together like this, cuz my vogue doesn't have my favorite of her.

He was also Galahad in King Arthur and was pretty awesome in a few period pieces. If you like his work you might want to know he's going to be in a movie called Adam coming out next year.
