In reflecting upon how much desire these simple sneaks from Gap have just inspired, it’s entirely possible that New York has finally tipped my internal balance to 51% NY, 49% CA — because when I look at these I think SPRING!!! Which is hilarious because they are black leather sneakers, says California me. No, no, says New York me, can’t you see?? Shoes that aren’t boots that you can wear without socks? That’s practically a tropical vacation for our feet!
Controversy aside, these babies are a perfect transition from the recent winter of our collective discontent AND a perfect price to boot — $49.95 and an additional 35% off until tomorrow, 4/24 — so get while the getting is good, and we can be spring twins.

I was very pleased to attend the Fall 2012 preview for The Gap a few weeks ago. Marisa and I spent a lovely summer evening over drinks and live music atop the McKittrick Hotel in Chelsea, visiting with the new fall collection. Full of the kind of basics we’ve all come to love and expect from the brand, the new collection is a playful and modern update of several iconic wardrobe staples. Of particular interest are the blazers, a whole slew of colorful flats and one adorably polka dotted chambray shirt. Be sure to visit The Gap for more fall goodness.
Aside from the fall fashion inspiration, the highlight of the evening was a truly showstopping Manhattan sunset. From our perch above the west side we were treated to the kind of skyline porn usually reserved for Sex and the City flyover shots. Funny how sometimes floating above the city can feel more “New York” than walking along its streets, no?

Pardon the repetition — I did mention these shoes only yesterday — but after noticing that The Gap currently has a 30% off Friends and Family Sale on through this Sunday (promo code: GAPFRIENDS), I realized that these slips are *only $27!* Order two pairs, and you get free shipping.
Boom. Your summer-to-fall footwear, instantly solved.
