Ombre Tassel Earrings: $5.80
You know that scene when she thinks the fork is a comb?
She was confused.
Just like you seem to be confusing those titty danglers for ear adornments.
Fixed that for you.
Living in Los Angeles amongst both the rich and the famous, I am presented almost daily with a double edged sword of delights and disappointments.
We have amazing restaurants with amazing food that are sometimes so amazing you have to wait a fortnight before you can actually eat in them.
The streets are littered with beautiful women and the odds of seeing an actual celebrity can go from slim to none to almost unavoidable with the change of a zip code.
And, most importantly, we have every shop you could ever want and every shop you could never afford to actually shop in.
One of those shops just happens to be one of my favorites.
One of those shops is Chanel.
Even though I love the crisp, clean lines and posh quilted loveliness this super luxe brand has to offer, I’m in no position to pay super luxe prices.
However, through the wonders of Forever 21′s copy cattish homage items to Chanel, we can all indulge our silly desire to look like skeleton puppet genius Karl Lagerfeld’s dream girl.
Leatherette Rose Bag: $19.00
If you can’t afford Rodeo Drive, why not just take a stroll down Front Street?
Take a walk with me, ladies. It’s Wonderful Wednesday. Continue reading
Ladies in long term relationships – brace yourselves. Engagement season has officially begun.
So in the spirit of this magical time of year, and also because I’d like to indulge in my own matrimonial fantasies, this Wonderful Wednesday is dedicated to all things wedding! Budget wedding at that!
Lace and Pleats Dress: $29.80
This is the most inexpensive alternative wedding dress I have ever come across.
With the sweet pleats and lace top, it’s perfect for a bride on a serious budget who is having a less than formal affair. If the black ribbon bothers you, snip it off and cover it up with a satin one of your color choice.
Say you do. You know you wanna. It’s Wonderful Wednesday.
Peekaboo Shoulder Dress: $16.90
Suplice Neckline Dress: $24.80
Forget the old clichés about bridesmaids dresses being ugly. These are your best friends! Put them in something chic, sexy and affordable they can wear again and again.
Glittered Flats: $16.80
Suedette Peeptoe Slingbacks: $24.80
Blinged out black flats for the reception and something blue in a sky high heel for the ceremony. If the wood grain on those sling backs bothers you, cover that part with some clear glue and cost the area in gold leaf or your choice of glitter. You could also paint over it with a high shine lacquer.
Graduated Tear drop Earrings: $3.80
Opaque Beaded Circle Earrings: $5.80
Love Trio Bangle Set: $6.80
Sparkle Woven Bracelet: $6.80
So many jewelry options under $10, so little time! The possibilities are practically endless, but I’d keep it simple as you can with muted colors and classic details.
Forever 21, Wonderful.
This week’s prize is one for both the fellows and the fairer sex among you!
A $25 gift card to Express, free to a randomly selected WTForever 21 reader.
I know. I know. Hella dope.
All you have to do is
(If you already like and follow, go ahead and spread the free love by tweeting the link to this post or sharing it on Facebook!)
I’ll select a winner next Tuesday at midnight (9/27).
Need some inspiration for how to spend your totally free, marvelous money? Of course you don’t. Who need inspiration for shopping?
Here’s some selections from Express under $25 anyways!
Skinny Cropped Pant: $19.99
I would probably tuck these into some high tan boots. Very cute.
Long Sleeve Crew Neck: $22.90
Layers, layers, LAYERS! Probably my favorite thing about Fall. Throw this on with a wrap sweater on top and a cute scarf bundled around your neck – BAM! Warmth, adorableness, casual, comfort, all the ingredients of the perfect chilly weather companion.
V-Neck Dolman Sleeve: $24.43
Despite (or maybe because of?) its resemblance to a flying squirrel, I love this type of sleeve on a sweater. It’s flattering and chic. Works really well in air conditioned offices.
Glitter Post Earrings: $19.90
I KIND of want these for myself. Just sayin’. You should get in on this freebie before I come to my selfish senses.
Color-Rimmed Aviators: $23.92
I loves me some aviators, ESPECIALLY in this color. I can smell the crisp air and see the leaves changing color already.
Open Plaid Scarf: $19.90
Something from the men’s side, but easily worn by both sexes.
Knit Sport Trunks: $19.90
Yes, yes, this is for the guys.
But it’s also FOR THE LADIESSSSS. High five.
GOOD LUCK, EVERYONE!
Owl Pendant Necklace: $6.80
Anyone with super big, furious looking eyes surrounded by feathers that glow in the dark of night can see Forever 21 has a thing for owls.
Owls with rhinestones for eyes.
Bright Owl Ring: $3.80
Owls which stare eerily at your friends, perched from the safety of your earlobes.
Owl Earring Trio: $3.80
Owls who watched knowingly from your ring finger, judging your every key stroke.
Textured Owl Ring: $2.80
Owls with little pearl white clock faces for bellies.
Owl Watch Necklace: $2.80
Owls with big pearl white bellies.
Enameled Owl Necklace: $2.80
Big owls, little owls, owls that are on socks!
Owl Heart Ankle Socks: $0.95
OWLS. OWLS. OWLS. Forever 21 has got owls on the brain and it’s really starting to stick in my ass.
I thought this owl trend would be dead by now. Girls were wearing large owl necklaces when I was in high school in 1998. WHY won’t this DIE?
What are your thoughts? Do you enjoy owl accessories or wish Forever 21 would give up the feathery ghost and let the owl trend pass peacefully into the dark?
Once in a great while, when the moons align and a tender breeze whistles through the dankest sweatshop sewing floor, we here at WTForever 21 press pause on the almost endless vitriol injected into posts to thank the Heavens for Forever 21′s standout selections.
In honor of my birthday tomorrow and impending Princess Party to celebrate it, today’s positive post will highlight all that’s pink and regal in the realm of WTF.
Hold on to your tiaras.
Floral Leatherette Flats: $19.80
It’s Fantastic Friday. Continue reading
Forever 21 has made their fortune selling cheap trend items to the masses and although I respect everyone’s right to safely shop for items of the moment, there are a few things still in stores that should have stopped existing by now.
Stupid Owl Accessories
I still haven’t figured out how wearing the wisest bird in the animal kingdom on your person makes you look so effing stupid.
Dumb Ass Sublimation Tops
Basically anything with those stretch marking looking lines over the print of the shirt needs to stop. It looks like some lazy form of tie-dye and it’s so ugly even hippies won’t wear it. Stop it.
Lamé. It’s spelled that way for a reason.
Ridiculous Gladiator Sandals
Accessories, Clothing, Etc. with Feathers
Despite the fact that I have never actually seen anyone in real life wear a feathered accessory, Forever 21 keeps cranking out these oversize cat toys. I can only hope they’re being purchased and then shredded to bits by irate felines in homes across America.
Forever 21, WTF?
