I have to give Old Navy a lot of credit here… I think their merchandise has improved significantly over the past year or so. (Gap and Banana Republic, on the other hand, seem to be experiencing the exact opposite.)
I took an afternoon break with Soccer Mom the other day and… wait for it… bought something from Old Navy. Usually I love styles I see online and then can’t find a size that fits properly! Anyone else think that the clothing fits a little looser than it should? Well I liked a few things, but they didn’t have my size and they weren’t alterable. But… just as I was heading to the fitting room, I spotted (haha) the cutest dress!
It fit beautifully and the fabric isn’t cheap feeling at all. In fact, it definitely reminds me of something J. Crew would carry… and look, it’s really similar for a fraction of the price:
That’s the Old Navy dress on the left and the J. Crew dress on the right.

One thing to keep in mind about the clothing in Old Navy is that everything looks better after a trip to the dry cleaner! You have to try to look past wrinkles and crumpled clothes… A fresh pressed dress looks so much better.
Have you bought something from Old Navy recently?
