Ah, the true and comforting signs of Winter. The days get shorter. The mid-morning lines at Starbucks get longer. And suddenly, you go from galavanting in the crisp Fall with your chic scarves and light weight layers, to bundling up like a baby in swaddling clothes or a sausage rolled in puff pastry.
In essence, you need jackets & coats. Jackets & coats to go from the car to the front door. Jackets & coats for heading to work in the morning and going out with the girls at night. If you even have a dream about leaving the house, you need jackets & coats.
So in honor of this Wonderful Wednesday, here are some tasty, toasty offerings from Forever 21, good for any cold weather occasion.
Crest Button Knit Jacket: $29.80
Bundle up, beautiful. It’s Wonderful Wednesday. Continue reading
In what I’m entirely convinced is an effort to net cash from the coveted hipster boi consumer segment, Forever 21 has rolled out what is quite possibly the douchiest fucking tee I have ever laid my poor, puffy, red eyes on.
Classic Tee with Scarf: $18.90
It’s a slim cut tee with a skinny scarf ATTACHED to it. They might as well call it the “I’m sure you’ve never heard of this band I love. They’re pretty obscure” tee.
All that’s missing now is a pair of dick strangling jeans and a Spock haircut, along with a sleeve of tattoos that hold absolutely no significance to you what so ever. Basically, this tee is the main ingredient in the Privileged Hipster emergency kit.
I’ll bet that scarf only drinks fair trade coffee, too.
Forever 21, Corporations like you are the REAL Enemy, Man. You Don’t Even Know. Let’s Meet Up at Starbucks and Talk About it While we Smoke Parliament Cigarettes.
I know what you’re thinking.
“Rachel! You HATE faux fur! You think it’s overall tacky and it makes you sneeze and it’s itchy and you have no idea how to wash it!”
If that’s what you’re thinking, you are thinking wrong, because after today’s trip to Forever 21 I have discovered I LOVE faux fur. I’ve just been wearing it wrong.
Leopard Top: $22.80
Leopard Leggings: $10.80
Purple Faux Fur Vest: $29.80
Grey Faux Fur Vest: $37.80
There it is, chickies. Soak it in. The only way to wear faux fur properly is to wear IT ALL AT ONCE and WITH LEOPARD PRINT.
Now, again, I know what you’re thinking.
“This bitch has lost her damn mind. She looks like a gender confused woolly mammoth.”
IF that’s what you’re thinking, you’re again thinking wrong. This ish is the height of fashion.
You just don’t get it.
And I feel sorry for you. Hate on me haters. I do not have time to explain fashion to you or why I ‘m dressed like a Russian Bond villain.
Forever 21, Furtastic.
