When Gap got its most recent CEO, he/she was quoted as saying that they wanted to return to the basics that defined Gap and made it popular in the 80's. This time warp fizzled and left of with colections that bragged about dorky hoodies with butterflies and rhinestones in the corner. Their RED brand is inspiring but what was once a staple of my childhood became a store filled with boring clothes that cost way too much. I really could write a novel about how frustrated I am by Gap. However, I was flipping through the new Teen Vogue (who is that girl on the cover?) and in the Shoes feature, there were a pair of braided Gap sandals. "Finally", I thought, "Gap is going to step out of Hoody-land and in to some fashion!"
