Forgiving Gap

It makes sense that losing weight is the big New Year's resolution, because after holiday food and holiday drinking we usually suffer from holiday gut. Not only is January for getting back to work, but it's also about getting back into work clothes. Some will diet, but Erica, after the ritualistic joining-of-a-gym, went shopping and bought new work gear at Gap. And her look is GOOD:

on the the subway.........the art shot (aka "moving train")

I'm really feeling this '70's working woman look. Nice job, Gap (blouse, $44.50 and pants, $49.50). And Erica, as usual, puts it together great: the print shirt, the schoolboy blazer, and the patent pumps is all perfection. And the soft, winter white pants look so January modern, it's refreshing. Why else should we shop Gap in the new year? It's all about the size. At Gap 6 is a 6, not an 8 or 10.

Get a further jump on the upcoming '70's trend with this Bitten jean vest, right, at Steve and Barry's. What's hipper than a denim vest, man? This is $14.98 and fits pretty well. The color is perfect for the retro feel. It's very Sears Toughskins.
