i haven't had a chance to write any letters in a while, nor have i felt compelled to do so...so feel special gap.
unfortunately, it's not a happy one. last night, i had date night with my mom. i went to nordstrom cafe (had delicious shrimp and asparagus risotto, omg) and saw how do you know (highly recommend!). on the way walking to the movies, i spotted a beaaaaautiful cardigan on display in the window at gap.

it was seriously calling my name.
but i was running late for the movies, so i (sadly) had to walk away.
the movie was over around 10 and the mall was still open due to special holiday hours. on the way walking back to where we parked, i saw the cardigan on display in yet another window.
obviously, i took this as a sign that i needed it. the shopping gods were calling...duh.
so, i walk in and i ask where i could find it because it was literally nowhere to be found. one of the sales associates checked around and then went to his manager. his manager then rudely said that there were none left. when i mentioned the POSSIBILITY of taking it off of the display, the manager looked at me like i literally just murdered someone with a scarf like, on the salesfloor.
a. i have never been in a circumstance where they would not sell me the item off of a display model. ms. rude manager, you could have been nicer.
b. really, corporate WOULDN'T want you to make a sale?
c. um, i wanted the cardigan. I BATTED MY EYELASHES AT YOU DUDE.
d. i was tempted to take it off the mannequin myself.
(and it was destiny because the mannequin size WAS MY SIZE)
e. CHEER UP, IT'S THE HOLIDAY SEASON, DUDE.
have to say, i have no interest in going back for the cardigan. or ever shopping at gap again. i'm super disappointed.
