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.

For when you absolutely have to be super fabulous but only on the shoulders.
Forever 21, WTF?
Well before the dawn of modern Hipsterdom, adventurous young men and women began flirting with the fashion line between counter culture trends and just plain looking like you got dressed in the damn dark. In the photo below (sent to me by the very Diva-licious Aldo of WhatHadHappa.com) a brave mannequin at the Forever 21 in Salinas, CA took the whole “mirrors or eyes or a sense of complimentary colors and patterns are SO mainstream” look to a different level this weekend.
The hideousness of this ensemble is, I assume, without question, but there is one mystery still to be uncovered in this unfortunate photo (well, besides the obvious “Why would you ever do this?”).
Is that mannequin … or a MANnequin? As in, a statue with testosterone? As in, meant to be wearing male clothing? Our intrepid photographer tells us he spied this delight in the lady’s section but I am dubious. The legs are pin thin enough and the shoulders are far too broad for a Forever 21 women’s display.
What do you all think? Does this dude look like a lady or does this lady just look like a douche?
Forever 21, WTF?
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.

Check out this Studio 54 velvet rope reject costume.
The Drop Waist Lacy Contrast Dress looks like what a figure skater at the Fugly Olympics would wear. The only landing she’s going to stick is the one that’s smack dab in the middle of a shame spiral.
Here’s a hint, ladies: if you’re considering purchasing a clothing item with a description that uses the words “crinkled skirt,” “velveteen,” “taupe” and “coral” all in the same sitting, you may want to seriously assess the life choices that led you to this point.
Forever 21, WTF?
