Aight so let me tell y’all. A couple of months ago, I got contacted by Justine of the firm Brand About Town because they liked my blog and thought I was a “buzzmaker” and “trendsetter”. I was surprised because I was like “My blog? My lil corner of the intrawebs?” I was all cheesy face and stuff.
Well, Brand About Town is doing a new campaign for the Gap, who just redesigned their new line of jeans. Long story short, they picked me to be one of 50 bloggers from around the country to become Gap Brand Ambassadors. So I got to throw a little get together with 10-20 of my girlfriends to try on the new GAP Born To Fit jeans before they are released in stores. FREE jeans? Party with girlfriends? Y’all know I love hook-ups! WIN and WIN!
I threw it this past Saturday at my homie Karyn‘s crib (thanks hun!). I was the new but broke Oprah. You can call me Luvvie Winfrey. You get jeans! And YOU get jeans! And YOU get jeans!
They sent me their three new styles “Always Skinny”, “Real Straight” and “Sexy Boot” in sizes 0-12. The girls I invited weren’t huge Gap fans and were expecting to not fit anything. Shoot, I had my side-eye READY. Well SURPRISE! All but 1 out of the 16 girls there found jeans that fit them really well. The one who didn’t leave with jeans in hand needed a short length pair, but armed with the jeans certificates I was sent, she left with a smile. YAYYYY!!!
Everyone was checking out their booties in the mirror to make sure they weren’t “PANCAKED” out (fortunately, no one was). And no one had to jump to get into the jeans, since they were soft and stretchy. THUMBS UP! Methinks Gap may no longer need more people. We had a BLAST trying on jeans, sipping on Chardonnay and
roasting talking. I’m a fan of these new jeans, especially the “Real Straight” ones, which really fit like bootcut jeans, while the “Sexy Boots” were more flared. Those are the pair I came away with.
Much thanks to Brand About Town and the Gap for this.
Anywho, I am giving away a $50 Gap giftcard and a free Jeans certificate to 2 lucky readers of AweLuv. Why? Because Mi hookup es su hookup.
Leave a comment with your name and email (and if you make me cackle, you increase your odds of winning). LOL. Nah I’mo throw names in a bowl to determine who wins. I’mo give y’all till Friday (Aug. 7th) at 9am CST to “enter” this contest.
P.S. Check out Ishea’s (aka the South Shore Social Lite) recap of my party.
