The Gap's Born To Fit Party - 1969 Demin Launch & Giveaway!!


I was so excited to be selected by Brand About Town to help promote Gap's 1969 Premium Jeans launch. Last Sunday, ten of my closest girlfriends headed over to my apartment for jeans, wine and a good time.


Delish Beverages (don't you just love those mini 1969 waters) and Born To Fit Jean Bags

The Gap to me is one of those classic stores that you can always find something to buy, whether it be a T-shirt, dress, swimsuit or kick ass tote. I have never been able to purchase Gap jeans however as I was blessed with the awesome combination of short legs (inseam 30" with heels) and a bubble butt. Jean shopping is a nightmare, to say the least (and I don't think I am alone here). So I excited to try these new 1969 jeans but a little hesitant to believe the would actually fit. We had three styles to choose from...




Real Straight



Always Skinny

and Sexy Boot

All of us ladies grabbed our size in one of the styles and are you ready for the best part...they truly did fit everyone. I was amazed, as were most of the girls. I opted for the sexy boot and was pleasantly surprised that I was able to go down a size (as were the other girls) for the perfect fit.

Mrs. F went right for the Always Skinny jeans...

And of course they looked darling and perfect on her (and paired with boots)!

Lindsay & Nancy opted for the Sexy Boot (fitted with just enough flare)...


While the newly married Mrs. C and I chose Real Straight (perfect to dress up with heels and a top for a night out with the girls)...

Mrs. L & Mrs. F were happy campers with their waters, jeans and totes to go.

While not all the girls cared to be captured on camera, every girl left with a pair of jeans that they loved (thank you Gap & Brand About Town)! The washes are fantastic and the fits are even better! Also, when was the last time you dropped under $70 for a well fitted and crafted fashionable pair of jeans (crickets anyone)?

I can honestly say that I was very pleased with the alterations that Gap has made with their denim and if you haven't already tried on a pair, you need to rush out immediately and do so. I am pretty positive that you will find a pair that you were born to wear :)

And to make it a little easier to find a pair you love, I am so excited to share YBB's first giveaway to you lovely readers! Up for grabs are two free pairs of jeans and a $50 Gap Gift Card! That means there are three winners to be had, and three just so happens to be my favorite number! All you have to do is leave a comment sharing what you will pair your new denim jeans with, and where you plan to wear it . I will select three random winners on Tuesday, September 1st, so be sure to get your entry in before midnight (PST) on August 31st. (If you already left a comment I automatically entered you as well!)


Good Luck To Everyone!

Loved your jeans party, Lynds! I have not bought Gap jeans since I worked at the U Village Gap in high school but all you ladies definitely inspired me to give them a try!

Courtney and Nicholas said...

What a fun night! Ditto on the GAP jeans from the past, but your post has made me want to go give them a whirl now!

Erin said...

The jeans look adorable on each of you! I too have not bought Gap jeans in years, but I'm loving the sexy boot. I've been inspired by this post to give them a shot. Thanks Lynds!

I want those skinnies! Looks like fun! Great puns too.

J said...

Everyone looks so great in the jeans they chose! I've been debating ordering a pair of the Real Straight (my store ran out of sizes almost right away!!) but since I haven't been able to try them on I'm not sure what size to get.

Jaclyn Z. Reiss said...

cute cute! you all look D-A-R-L-I-N-G! I have been totally impressed by GAP denim lately - the boyfriend jean is fab too (love the sizing, nothing makes you feel better than getting to go down a size)! ;)

Tara said...

What a fun party and you all look so cute!

I am also blessed with short legs and a bubble butt... glad to hear of a pair at that price fitting such a combo! I just might have to give their jeans another try!

Sweet Nothings said...

Blyth Family Blog said...

Lynne said...

Such a cute party! I wish I lived closer :) I was just eyeing the boyfriend and skinny jeans last night in my Instyle mag. I was leaning towards the skinny jeans to wear with my Hunter Rain boots once fall hits.

Shelby said...

Umm really fun! And I want to win! I would pair my new jeans with my favorite pair of boots, a fitted tank and scarf. And I would wear them everywhere! To work especially - since we're lucky enough to wear jeans here. Oh and of course I'd blog about them too ;) Ha! XOXO

Chuck said...

OOH! I love the Always Skinny jeans!! Especially to pair them with knee high boots, a simple v-neck tee and a scarf for a comfortable and classic look for my long days in class.

Love your site!!
And thanks for the contest!

Mariana said...

I love a giveaway! I haven't been able to give in to the skinnies yet but if I owned a pair I would probably wear them with a t-shirt and my favorite pair of red TOMS and a simple hoodie if it was cold out.

Ariel said...

I would wear my GAP Perfect Boot jeans with this cute little black top with ruching out on a hot date with my boyfriend. The great thing about jeans is you can wear them with anything and you can wear them almost anywhere.

The party looked fun- thanks for giving us the chance to win some jeans as well!

Beebs said...

Ah, I'm dying to try a pair of the Always Skinny! I'm heading to Paris with my sisters in a few weeks and would totally pair these with a blazer and floral blouse and always chic flats.

Irwin Esq said...

Wow I haven't worn Gap jeans since high school but I'm def going to have to try a pair now! I'd pair mine with a classic white shirt and wear them for a casual night out :)

Lindsay said...

I am so jealous of your fun party! I will wear my new jeans with some fun going out shirts! Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway!

a.mi said...

wow your party sounded amazing! I'm loving the always skinny ones! I haven't tried GAP jeans in forever but would love to jump back into it :) I'd wear it going out with my girls with a flowy blouse top, strappy heels, and having a great night while being comfortable and looking great ;)

Amanda said...

What a fun party! I love the Always Skinny jeans!! I would wear them with boots and a comfortable oversized sweater for the fall.

Thanks for the contest!

Short White Coat Notes said...

Looks like all of you had fun! I would love the Always Skinny paired with Lady N Hunter wellies and a short sleeved cardigan.

JW Events said...

I just recently planned a fashion show for an outdoor shopping center in Seattle. The name of the event was "The Great Denim Event: Love Your Genes." I worked with a Gap denim fit expert to fit six models of varying heights, shapes and sizes. Plus, I decided to try their jeans as well. I, too, did not think that I could wear their jeans - I'm 5'11" and have curvy thighs. However, the LONG & LEAN jean fit me perfectly! (Unfortunately, I didn't get to keep a pair). I paired it with a fun,long, fuschia sleeveless shirt and a pair of fabulous black pointy-toe stilettos. I would wear that to a business meeting with a client planning a cocktail party or out on the town with my husband. Gap has done an excellent job with their new line!

Michelle said...

Um, I am totally obsessed with your GAP jeans girl party! I would love to rock the REAL STRAIGHT, and I would pair them with a cute dressy tank and some heels for a night out...since you know I NEED one! ;)

The Lil Bee said...

What a fun party idea! That is so neat. Well, personally, I would wear my new jeans with a non-maternity top...maybe a plaid button-down or a cozy knit sweater...something I've been coveting for the last, oh, eight and a half months!

Anonymous said...

Wow- i might have to go try some of these jeans. I am excited for fall so i can wear my jeans with my riding boots and fitted blazers. Super preppy and super chic. - ABF

Rosellini said...

Love your jeans Lynds!! You look adorable!!! I've been dying to try on a pair of these jeans, but since I'm still sporting the "bun in the oven" I have to wait...but defintely will as soon as I'm able to get myself into a pair! :) What a cute idea!

Luci said...

What a great party!!

I think the curvy bootcut would be perfect for me, and I would pair with with a white v-neck tee, a fitted blazer, long necklace, and heels!

winks said...

What fun! I think I like the real straight jeans the best - I've been in Europe a lot for work recently and like the look on the locals. I'd wear it with longer shirts and heals or boots.

Jaime said...

I would wear my new jeans tucked into cute Chinese Laundry black suede over-the-knee boots and a loose white tunic with black bomber jacket. All fab trends for fall! :) I plan to wear them for a day of fall shopping on Newbury St in Boston!

Jamie A. said...

Awesome giveaway! I love the Gap, they have great classic pieces. My boyfriend loves me in skinny jeans and boots so I would wear them on a date night with him! (jmajunkmail@yahoo.com)

Courtney said...

Gotta love classic Gap Jeans! I would pair the jeans with my greay Uggs! I would wear them out on the weekends! cwink@siu.edu

Kris said...

Fun night Lynds! So my little dream is a new pair of skinnies (since sadly mine from last year don't fit anymore, ugh!) and I would wear them with BOOTS! I am not looking forward to fall/winter, but looking forward to boot season. And.. I'd wear them everywhere!

Caitlin :) said...

Jean party looks so fun! I def need some sexy boot jeans to wear everyday! I'd pair them with a cute top for weekends or a tee and cardigan for class. Perfect for everything!

Molly said...

I'm looking to add to my shoe collection, so without question, I'll be pairing these with fantastic high heels - hopefully of the colorful variety. And I will wear them out on the town with my girlfriends on a rare saturday night when I'm not working.

JAG said...

I'll be pairint them with a white shirt and necklace you featured from forever 21 a week ago. It's gold and has pearl and blue 'baubles' on it. I saw it on your website....and went straight over and ordered it!!!! Wouldn't have found it without your blog! and have worn it with soooo many things. Thanks - even if I don't win!

caustin said...

I love the always skinny jeans! I would wear them out and to work on Fridays. Love!

Kelly said...

I have not taken the plunge into skinny jean world, so I might have to do that if I won this contest - and wear them with a fabulous pair of heels, naturally.

Recruiter Girl said...

Jeans! I need some like you wouldn't believe. Lost some weight, wouldn't even know what size I am anymore! I would wear them with these rocking pink shoes I just got from J Crew and a tank I bought on Etsy!

Katy said...

Gap jeans, I can't lie, I am surprised, I guess I will have to try some on...or just a bit of GAP:) Thanks Lady!!

little ms. sassy shelby said...

I've never commented before but this post seems to be a good time to break my silence.

Your jean party looks fab! I'd wear mine and host a party of my own.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Bree said...

What a fun party! I'd struggle to pick between the real straights or the long and leans. I'd be wearing them for girls night out with some tall platform sandals. :)

Doreen said...

Wow, you girls look GREAT!! I'm short, '4 11' and I know growing up and even well into adult hood, finding jeans was tough! I've never shopped GAP before. I know that's bad huh! :) I would love to win a pair of jeans to fit my short frame and I have a booty on me. hehe I would pair the jeans with a nice shirt and if I ever buy a pair of UGGS, I'd pair it with that. Thanks soooo much for the chance to win!! *hoping*

Mrs. Bunyard said...

What a fun party for you adorable ladies- I'm so jealous! So hard to choose, but I think I'd go with the staple Seattle winter outfit and wear the "Always Skinnies" with tall boots and a comfy, cozy sweater. Miss you!

Amber said...

I would definitely go with the skinny jeans! Pair it with some super cute boots, a cute top and wear my cute peacoat :) Perfect night out during the winter outfit!

Lindsey said...

I would love to win a pair of skinny jeans, and I would pair them with the Victoria riffle cami I just caught at the Jcrew store. Where would I wear them? I would totally rock that outfit on casual Fridays at the school I teach at.

fromatopink said...

Oooh that's tough... I'd pair my new jeans with my favorite pink heels and a shirt I got because of one of your Frugal Finds! Then I'd wear it to happy hour with my girlfriends :)
