Gap Born To Fit Party!

Last night I hosted 18 lovely ladies at my new house for a Gap Born to Fit party! We all had a great time eating, drinking, socializing, and enjoying all the goodies Gap and Brand About Town sent for the party.

We had so much fun I didn't take that many pictures! Oops! Luckily I took some pictures before everyone arrived and we got a group shot at the end of the night.


Everyone got to try out the new premium jeans in all three styles; Always Skinny, Real Straight, and Sexy Boot.


In an effort to be fair and to make sure everyone got to try all three styles, I had all the girls fill out a card ranking the three styles and the size that fit them best. More than half of the ladies preferred the Sexy Boot, but Real Straight and Always Skinny got a lot of love too!


There was a lot of talk about the overall construction and feel of the jeans; you can really tell that all three styles are high quality. People also noted that the jeans are more on par with designer jeans than previous Gap jeans. The ladies loved how the Gap jeans have a nicer price tag than traditional designer jeans. And while all that stuff is important, I think everyone was most excited about how they looked in the jeans. There was a lot of talk about the jeans being sexy!

In addition to sending the jeans, I got some snacks, bowl, digital camera, jump drive with a short movie about the jeans, and a digital video camera! How cute are the M&M's, popcorn, and snack bowl?




Everyone received a reusable tote bag filled with a pair of jeans in their favorite style or a certificate to purchase their favorite at Gap! They all loved being able to try out the jeans and take home a pair of their choice! By the end of the night, ALL of the jeans found new homes and I am sure their owners will get a lot of great wear out of them.


I also was able to give one lucky lady, Landlocked Mermaid, a gift card for 50 dollars!


I have a bunch of jeans certificates and coupons to give away so leave a comment telling me which style you want/need! Make sure you also leave me an email address so I can contact you if you win. If you tweet or blog about the giveaway I will give you an extra entry for each. You can put all your entries in one comment. You have until Friday the 14th at 12pm to enter!

  1. Ooh can Canadians enter? We have GAP up here too :p anyway I'd like to think that I would go for the straight legged pants, but I think I'd end up buying the boot cut ones because, you know - they fit over your shoes moreso than the straight legged one's. So, that's what I'd choose if I do happen to win (I never win anythingggg!) :)

    Good luck all! Yay!

  14. I love the jeans - I think I'd like the skinny jeans but the boot legged jeans are always a classic style. I will need to hit up the Gap in MD sometime soon! Love the pictures!

  17. So many people are talking about these Gap Brand About Town, and now I'm really intrigued by these new Gap jeans. I hate shopping for jeans and have lived in the same pair for almost 4 years - which was acceptable back when I lived in Florida and only wore jeans occasionally. Up here in D.C. though, I need some jeans in my life!

    I'd love to try the boot cut or the long and lean. I struggle to find jeans long enough for me, but I've heard good things about that cut from other Brand About Towners.

    By the way, your party sounds like it was so much fun! I hope you enjoyed yourself!

  18. wow, i haven't tried Gap jeans on in probably a century. the last time i loved them it was their bootcut that fit me better than any other brand... then they went and skinnied out all their jeans so even their bootcut hugged the ankle, not cool Gap, not cool.
    i'd love to give their Sexy Boot another chance though : )

  21. This looks like so much fun!!! I wish Bloomington had a Gap (can you believe we freaking don't???!) so I could check out all the new fun stuff. Le sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Very cool that you got all of that stuff! I liked the Gap-branded M&Ms myself.

    Thanks again for including me! It was way fun. :)

  23. The Gap recently discontinued my favorite cut of jeans ever, the Essential. I'm so bummed! I think the Sexy Boot would work for me. Skinny jeans never fit me, because well, I'm not skinny, I'm curvy. Great idea for a giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm actually wearing my new Gap, curvy dark wash boot cut jeans that I purchased last night and I.LOVE.THEM. They are so comfortable!!

  29. First of all, I can't believe you are all moved-in and hosting a party already! You are a rock star. Secondly, I'm going to the GAP to look at these jeans - I've heard so many good things about them and I can't wait. I think I'd like the Sexy Boot Cut the best!

  37. What a fun concept! How did you get the chance to host this? I'd love to hear the details (itiseverlasting at gmail dot com)! I am in serious need of new jeans as my size is getting smaller -- woohoo! I think the Sexy Boot sound fab.

  38. Gap is doing a great job with their marketing. It's obvious they want honest feedback from bloggers. I've always said that I would trust what a real person says over a magazine any day!

    I have a Gap outlet near my house. Hopefully these jeans will turn up there in a few months. I want some Sexy Boots!

  39. I'm pregnant now, but will definitely be needing to revamp the wardrobe in just a couple of months. New jeans would be fantastic! Sexy boot cut, please :) [Etoile484(at)aol(dot)com]

  50. Wow, sounds like a great time! I would have to choose the sexy boot cut style because I'm a little bit more curvy - no skinnies for me!
