Wonderful Wednesday: Perfect Pleats for a Lazy Lady

I’m trying something new this Wonderful Wednesday.

It’s called being too lazy to finish writing up The Great Gatsby inspired post I started last night.

Instead, here’s my clothes thrown on the floor in a way I would wear them!

Jacket: Forever 21 $27.80

Top: Macy’s Bar iii

Skirt: Forever 21 $17.80

Necklace: Dunno

Bracelet: Forever 21 $7.80

Shoes: Michael Antonio $44.99

Ring: Ariel Gordon Jewelry – (I got this for basically free with a coupon code)  $75

WHAT DO YOU THINK

of this new Wonderful Wednesday format? It comes from the purest place of not wanting to either do research or even put on real clothes.

Let me know in the comments!

Rory Beca for Forever 21 Serves Up WTF

When Rory Beca’s fun, flirty and fresh designs showed up in Forever 21 stores earlier this year I breathed a sigh of contented relief. Looks from Rory Beca like the one below made Forever 21′s near simultaneous collabo with local LA designer Petro Zillia look a candy colored poop on a stick by comparison.

So when I learned late last month Rory Beca would be doing another collection for Forever 21 meant to outfit every holiday moment from meeting the parents to New Years party, I was pretty stoked.

But this?

Textured Heart Skirt: $24.80

This right here? This is a damn shame.

Lace-Up Boxy Top: $13.80

This top is relatively inoffensive but what is happening south of the border? Distressed, gold lamé skinny jeans? It looks like what the Tin Man wears when he goes gay clubbing.

Rory Beca Floral Lace Blazer: $27.80

Again, let’s just for a second forget about the broad shouldered, Sunday football linebacker blazer on top and peep what’s occurred around the waist and beyond.

Are these golden nuggets (read: turds) even part of her collection? Sadly, I think they might be, as they are featured in the promo clip for the collab from Forever 21, along with an actually cute little black dress (Rory Beca’s personal favorite) that is nowhere to be found online at Forever21.com.

Maybe they’re planning on putting the rest of the collection up for sale later? If anyone has the inside scoop, email me (racheldkane(at)gmail.com).

Forever 21 (and you too, Rory Beca!), WTF?

Wonderful Wednesday: It’s Raining Men(swear Inspired Outfits)!

Ah, yes. The first rainy day of Autumn in LA.

It’s been coming down outside today like cats riding soaking wet dogs on chariots of water AND I LOVE IT!

Yes, people in Los Angeles act a fool when it rains. Yes, the weather turns cold and nasty and taking a walk is even lower on my scale of priorities when it rains. But that all means absolutely nothing in the face of the best reason to do a rain dance: Rain Weather Outfits! And since I am particularly partial to menswear inspired clothes during this time of year, this positive post is dedicated to looking posh while it’s positively pissing out.

Casual Tweed Vest: $19.90

Man up. It’s Wonderful Wednesday.
