  1. I soo wish that an LA [or really anywhere in cali] would have a Born To Fit party. I'm hearing about them all, but they are all so far away! Jealous.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Your party looks like it was tons of fun! New jeans, drinks, food, great company -- what more does a party need?

  19. Love the flip video camera, so easy to use and nice & small so it's easy to take any where. I can only imagine the footage you'll get with it on your next bike riding bar crawl...

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's funny that you're mentioning GAP. I was in Toronto yesterday and I walked by their display and they seem to really be breathing new life into their line. I love the guest designer t-shirts they have out right now not to mention their denim.

    You gals looked like you had an amazing time!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think your Flip HD has sexier editing software than my Flip Ultra.

    Jealous.

    ReplyDelete
  22. These parties have hit DC by storm- and it looks like they are doing good over in Cleveland too!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I could use a great pair of jeans. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. wow, all your friends are friggin' super models, haha

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would like some jeans and a lettuce wrap but I will settle for your company this coming week!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am jealous!!! That sounds like a blast! I LOVE GAP jeans. I was sort of a GAP whore for awhile. . . and in recent years ventured out, but always go with my standard there!

    ReplyDelete
  30. So sad I missed the party, sweets. :(

    P.S. thank goodness, sort of. I would have felt like the Hunchback of Notre Dame next to your tall skinny friends.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Dude. I still can't believe that the jeans @ Maxie's GAP party actually FIT me

    I mean.

    Seriously.

    ReplyDelete

    Bring on the jeans!

    And trust me, if Gap can make a pair of jeans that fit my birth-hippin, junk-in-the-trunk-havin body, I'll be in their debt forever.

  43. Did you play "In Those Jeans" on repeat the entire time.

    PS - Unimpressed you are missing Who's Bad.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Niiiiice. I'm hoping to dive into this Brand About Town thing soon ... if they pick me, of course. Keep your fingers crossed for me please.

    And jeans? Can I leave a few more comments? Ha.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Holy posts!

    I'm just really jealous that Edward Cullen took time out of his busy schedule to join the party!

    ReplyDelete
  46. The party looks great! I LOVE Gap jeans, and have only worn Gap denim for a few years now! Nothing else fits my weird hips-ass-thigh ratio like Gap!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Since I followed your lead and cut up a credit card, I could really use the free jeans..haha!

    ReplyDelete
  48. So I have a question for you, oh guru of denim. I have a large-ish (okay fine, it's just large. I add the "ish" for my ego) bum and wide hips. I'm not huge, but I definitely could be considered pear-shaped. My question is this: can I wear skinny jeans? I mean, I KNOW I can wear whatever I want but I don't want to be walking around emphasizing my large behind. I guess my real question is: does the Gap make skinny jeans for non-skinny gals?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I want some jeans, yo!!! Pick me!!! Also, why are you not in the video? Alexa, how am I supposed to adequately stalk you, if I can't keep up-to-date on your daily looks? Hmm?

    ReplyDelete
  50. What a great party! And how thoughtful of RPatz to stop by and chat with you ladies and indulge in GAP related products!

    ReplyDelete
  51. You have got to be kidding me!!! Why was I on vacation???? I need some new jeans!!

  52. Is this exclusive for women? Cause im definitely looking for some jeans and the Gap around here is quite expensive. : )

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanks for inviting me to your awesome GAP party. Maybe I need to get a plum shirt to go with my new jeans. After the baby comes of course!!

    Also...for all the girls that got the skinny jeans... check out this link.

  55. That's so awesome! Looks like everyone is having these GAP parties!

    I would love a new pair of jeans! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Shit. Small world. I know Lauren. Our moms were besties when we were little - we went to the swimming pool together all the time! So freaking weird. Brb while I go write on her Facebook wall and tell her I just saw her cameo on Cleveland's a Plum.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Your party looks awesome. Mine will be so ghetto in comparison. And why would I hate you? Did you try to steal my man?

    ReplyDelete
  58. For some reason that Edward Cullen thing made me laugh really hard.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Is Edward a straight leg or loose kind of guy?

    ReplyDelete
  60. What a fun party! I would love to win a new pair of jeans. I really loved the gap essential jean, which they discontinued, so I'm hoping to love the new fits just as much!

  67. I'm a former Gap girl too -- 3 years in college. I still find myself absentmindedly folding sweaters when I am shopping there...

    And who couldn't use another pair of Gap jeans?

    ReplyDelete
  68. All 3 styles look fab! I'll have to check them out!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I've been wanting a Flip camera--did you find your easy to use?

    It looks like you threw quite a party!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Love the skinny jeans. And I certainly like the way you threw a party!:)

    ReplyDelete
  71. What a fun party! I reallly need some new jeans - especially now that I can wear them to work!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Gah. How awesome! I want to live in a larger city to be able to participate in something like this! Loves it!

    What kind of jeans worked best on you?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ah, the memories..I lived in Gap flare bottom jeans in high school.

    Haven't had a pair in years but if I recall, they generously fit the female figure very flatteringly.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Very, very cool!! Skinnies look totally cute.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hi there! First off let me say how much I love this site for all the wonderful information you provide!

    When you first mentioned you were chosen to be a gab brand enthusiast I immediately got excited because I wouldn't wait for the honest and thoughtful reflections you would give of their products, and you really delivered!

    I am leaving this comment to be considered for a Gap card for a pair of jeans. I am interested in the Real straight because of the wash (beautiful dark denim that I can wear during the day or jazz it up at night) and because of the fit. I'm a typical lady with curves and these jeans look like they would complement my shape. Thanks so much for the post and your consideration!

  76. pick me. i'll buy you alcohol.

    ReplyDelete
  77. who can pass up a chance to win free jeans? not me!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Look at all the free schizz you're giving away this week!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I only wear Gap Jeans. Shopping there helps me avoid pity parties in the dressing room...Plus, I only have two wearable pairs of jeans (both from the Gap)left in my wardrobe so winning this would be incredibly helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  80. i always find out about these parties after the fact. boo. i'm in cleveland, yo, the shipping fees would be minimal! hell if i get picked, let me know and i'll pick up the jeans.

    ha one more day til friday... in survival mode over here.

  84. Ok so I'm a little late but enter me please!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I am officially obsessed with this line. Yesterday I bought the Always Skinny and Curvy in a trouser cut. Every pair I tried on fit like a glove but unfortunately my bank account won't allow me to buy them all. Hope I get a free pair!

    ReplyDelete
