An Old Navy

Tuesday, April 13, 2010
If you saw all the labels I'm wearing here, you'd think I was a walking Old Navy ad. I didn't even like Old Navy. They have cheap quality clothes for cheap prices - enticing for some, but it doesn't last. Old Navy has definitely upped their game. I've been loving a lot of their pieces lately, i.e. my bag.

The newest addition to my closet is this jacket in a packet. I'm all about practicality and being able to stuff all that in your pocket makes it very mobile and makes for a very happy Elaine. I told Chase it was for the Philippines. It is...and I can also use it after!!

  3. You're right, they have upped their game, i first got that pocket raincoat from Topshop, not sure how i felt when i saw it at old navy, but i still find some great Basics there! their newest cargo/military style jackets are great!! Love your outfit, creatively and elegantly put together!
    Enjoy your day!

  5. jacket in a packet!? seriously, how awesome and handy.

  6. Haha, I love your "90% of the time"" look, just adorable! I agree about ON, because there are times when I walk out of there with some real winners, but mostly I peruse and leave empty-handed.

  7. Haha. You're too funny! I don't like candid photos for that reason, but I like staged candid photos, though. It makes you look cool and collected every single time.

    Philippines! <3

  9. I agree with you that ON has sersiously stepped it up with their clothes recently. I love your yellow jacket and that floral tee is amazing.

  10. I can't tell, does that raincoat have a hood? Not bad, Old Navy!

  11. You should make more silly faces, they're always fun. :D I like Old Navy time to time, but they're usually good for basics for me, rather than the stand-out pieces that I so desire.

  13. Old Navy has been putting out some really cute stuff lately and that coat is one of them. I love it - that would be perfect for summer rain.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Haha I normally don't like Old Navy too much, but you got some really cute items from there! Once in awhile they have some really nice things.

  15. Ha, love the last two pictures :)

    That jacket in a packet would be fabulous for bicyclists. I'm excited to see something both chic and high-viz. I may have to find one of those for myself.

  16. i like old navy because it's a good sub for H&M -- a place way far away from me! :(

  22. I haven't been to old navy in forever! frankly because of the cheap quality of the stuff and lately stuff hasn't been appealing. but i did wander over to their website to check out some stuff when i saw it on some one's blog and yeah they have totally stepped up their stuff, at least by the looks of things.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Cute cardigan! I will have to go check out Old Navy--I haven't been there in quite some time.

  24. Great cardigan, I love your style. Fashion on a budget!!

  27. Old Navy surprises me too sometimes... and how awesome is that jacket. Bright, pretty and it comes in a bag? Genius.

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a cunning rain slicker! I want one!
    As for Old Navy not lasting: I'm not so sure about that assessment. Sure, their jeans wear out in under a year, but I've had my striped cardigan from there for... 5 years? I just replaced the buttons and now it works better than ever.

  29. i don't think i've ever seen this gorgeous green cardigan on you... that bright color really highlights your hair color :)

  30. I love Old Navy! When you hit them on sale days and get tops for $2 or $3 dollars it is worth it to shop there. I do think their shoes are too expensive for the quality though.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is a totally adorable look. You are gorgeous. Love the short cardi belted like that. Love this. Such a "fresh" look. Beautiful.

  59. I agree with you on Old Navy.....i think i have only one top from them - they are usually plain cheap.
    But it's goof to hear they are improving their quality... and now where is that bag?!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love the pic of you "90% of the time" - you still look gorgeous. And this outfit is fabulous (Old Navy or not! Very chic).

  61. I have a hard time shopping at Old Navy (so many people! so many colors! so much loud music!), but I find their jeans to be worth it. It's been so long since I bought anything other than jeans there that I have no idea what the quality is like otherwise.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Adorable - I love that shade of green! I agree - Old Navy has gotten better. Their clothes are now less boxy and more fitted which I also like. I just stocked up on sun dresses.
    Have a great day!

  63. ooh yeah, that raincoat is a pretty colour! I usually don't like old navy as well, but thats a good find!

    ReplyDelete
  64. No way! I saw those jackets in a pile in the clearance section last time I was there. I had no idea the shape was this cool! I couldn't seem to figure it out...looks great! The color is so unexpected.
