StylePantry 's Thoughts:

How’s this for memory lane, eh?

This dress I have on is so special to me. I bought it with my first paycheck when I worked at The Gap in college. I was 17 years old. I worked at The Gap part-time, so I could buy nice clothes from there with my employee discount (at the time I think it was 40% off, maybe less).

I purchased this dress, shirt, black thigh-high socks and some other items. I wore this dress the same way with black oxfords. Fast forward 17 years and 3 kids later, I’m wearing the same dress & shirt. Styled the same exact way.

I wish I had pictures to show. I’m sure if I dig really hard, I could probably find some pics. I don’t think it looks the way it looked on my 17 years ago, but I’m pleased and proud nonetheless. And I’m keeping it forever.. Perhaps for my daughters (lol). Enjoy.. xo

I went crazy with the pics, so more on the site. http://stylepantry.com/2010/11/18/gap-dress-gap-shirt-thigh-high-sock/

Also, one of my favorite independent handbag designers is giving my readers 40% off on bags. The code is on the site. Here’s a link http://stylepantry.com/2010/11/18/alchimie-bags-by-genny-novoso/

Love to you all. xo

Oh WOW, what an interesting story behind this look! You were so stylish back then! I remember what I bought for my first paycheck too.. 14 years ago.. ugly cotton t-shirt that I could possibly wear as a pyjama these days.)
