Mind the Gap (See Jane Shop)

I just realized that I bought a a few months back that is about to expire.  Lucky for me, the deal is for $50 to the Gap.  The caveat to this deal is that I need to spend it soon, as the expiration date is looming.  Though my visits to the Gap are less frequent these days, I've always held a special place for it in my heart since childhood.  I loved Gap hand-me-downs from my sister almost as much as I loved stealing her own tops that were easily three sizes too big on me.  (But, I wore them anyway.  It was the early 90s and practically everything was worn three sizes too big.)  When I begged my mom to take me to the mall when I was a wee middle-schooler, the first stop was always the Gap.  However, I didn't only shop there for their hip, logo sweatshirts; I really loved using their iconic, blue, plastic bags to carry my gym clothes in junior high--in fact, I insisted upon it.  Ah, the frivolity of youth.  If I could tell my 6th grade self anything, I think it would be:  'It doesn't matter if you carry a Gap bag to school--no one will think you're cooler.'

Anyway, whenever a deadline is put upon a situation such as this, I get anxious.  Will you help me choose?

Gah, I absolutely love all of your picks! Those shoes are incredible (though a $50 gift card won't nearly cover the cost of those, so that's something to factor in while choosing!) and I REALLY love the sequin skirt! Especially for holiday time! The other two are more practical (though still gorgeous) so I guess it depends on if you need a party outfit or something more day to day! Can't wait to see what you choose!

I love that sweater! I need to check out Gap soon, I'm noticing that I don't have nearly enough warm sweaters.

I am torn between the cozy and cute sweater or the sequin skirt. If you are lacking in the sparkly department then do the skirt! Love, A

I always find myself back at Gap for the basics and great sweaters. But recently I've been finding all kinds of things there (jeans, belts, work clothes, etc). I feel like they've really stepped it up the last few years. I love the cable knit sweater! That would be my first choice, but everything you posted is adorable.
