Nothing Crazy Good

I agree with Amy's review of the Folk Rock Collection. I would imagine more eccentric looks. The looks shown are much more subdued and casual than I would expect.

While I'm all for a casual vibe, I feel like there's nothing really unique about this collection. It's falls suit with my major gribe with the Gap: blah clothes overall.

FOLK ROCK FASHION..A collection inspired by summer festival fashion

However, the thing I find so fabulous about festivals are the eccentric looks worn by true Fashionistas and their ability to stray away from generic brand name outfits. To me festivals are all about scavenging up some random pieces at a flea market or a consignment shop.  On a recent online shopping rampage, I noticed Gap had a special section called Folk Rock, which is …
