Gap “What a Rack” Sale

I stopped by the mall after work today to visit the Apple store. I am on the market for a new laptop, and I am seriously considering purchasing my first Mac. I thought I wanted a MacBook Air, but after a series of consultations with store experts, I am leaning towards a MacBook Pro.

Anyway, on my way out of the mall, I spotted the following sale signs in the Gap.  What a rack? $5? $10? $15? $20? What?

A rack filled with $20 dresses particularly caught my attention. So, I went in and tried on a couple.

So, the dresses weren’t quite right on me. Darn it.  That purple asymetrical cascade dress (on the right) is currently retailing for $69.95 online, so $20 is a steal!

My favorite GapBodyFit pants, though, were 30% off, so I added the gFast leggings to my collection.

According to my store reps, the “what a rack” sale is in stores only, started on Sunday, and will run throughout the week at that particular store.  If you are on the market for a new dress, tops, or workout clothing, there could be great deals on those racks.

    MacBook Pro! That's what I have. Seeing posts like this makes me miss the U.S. I really like the look of the two dresses. They look as though they would run rather short on a taller person.

    @Peacheslcg-Oh…you do? After realistically assessing my needs and the capabilities of the different computers, the Pro emerged as the best match. I hope you will be back soon!

    Ok, although I find their slogan pretty offensive, I thought those dresses looked awesome on you. Dunno why you decided they weren't perfect! Unless you wanted to save your ducats for a computer. Then I do understand. 🙂

    @Someone: Good observation about the slogan! I did not catch that at all until your comment.

    I really wanted these dresses to work too. What's not obvious in the photos (because of the way I am standing) is the very tight fit of the lower end of both dresses. I would have liked to size up on the first dress (on the L), but the size was no longer available. The top of the purple one, though, was already too large, so I did not bother trying a larger a size. I usually have difficulty fitting straighter cuts because I am heavier on the bottom than the top.

    No prob and thanks for stopping by, Lauren!

    @Sing: I so wanted to. The cut didn't work with my proportions.

    @Shasie: Aren't they though?

    @Muffadal Photographer: Say what? That is awesome!
