the trouble with THE GAP these days is that things sell out before you can blink.  or if you’re really lucky, they go on sale for 60% off and they still have one in your size.  i gave up on finding another pair of my new favorite boyfriend cords (there are a few remaining on line in size 16 and size 00), but i decided to brave the post-holiday crowds in search on a bowery tee in  gray-and-black stripes that had caught my eye awhile back.

well, those tees were long gone.  but i did discover a pile of legging cords that looked appealing.  in knew they’d be way too tight in the right size, but on the advice of angie cox (youlookfab.com), i thought i’d try sizing up and see if i could make them fit like boyfriend cords.

most of the neutral colors were gone (except, again, in very large sizes) but i found some winter white ones in my new 2-sizes-too-big size and popped them on!  hey, not bad!  not quite as loose as the boyfriends, but quite comfy, and surprisingly, the winter white was flattering.

so, at 50% off the sale price, i have a new pair of cords.  as you can see, i haven’t QUITE forsaken shopping……but at least i’ve cut down.

collecting cords,
