Wonderful Wednesday: Chanel without the Credit Card Hell

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

Wonderful Wednesday: How to Dress for The Hunger Games

Like so very many if you out there in the land of WTF, I have recently become completely, butt crazy obsessed with the series that is The Hunger Games.

The story of a future world where teenagers are pitted against each other in an annual to-the-death, no holds barred arena game is not exactly new territory.  Never the less Katniss Everdeen, the heroine of the wildly popular Hunger Games trilogy, and her tough yet vulnerable, trusting yet cynical, beautiful yet brutal character has managed to work her way into my dark, shriveled little heart as well as the hearts of millions around the globe.

In hot anticipation of The Hunger Games’ March 23 opening date ( as well as the multitude of movie goers who will be seeing it dressed as their favorite character) and to honor the positive spirit WTForever 21 tries to embody during this time of the week, I present your guide for what to wear to The Hunger Games.

Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) & Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence)

Belted Sundress: $14.80

May the odds be ever in your favor. It’s Wonderful Wednesday. Continue reading

What to Wear When you Fall in Love with Channing Tatum

Sometimes the most obvious things in the world can be the most surprising. Like finding a quicker route to work by taking a wrong turn or learning that ratty old sweater you lounge around in at home is the sexiest thing he’s ever seen.

In this way, I guess I had every right to be surprised by the fact that a large majority of you enjoy the pouty lips, soulful eyes and perfectly sculpted abs of Channing Tatum, co-star to Rachel McAdams in this coming Valentine’s Day’s chick flick epic “The Vow.”

20120201-134010.jpg

In what is sure to be the first guilty pleasure pic of thousands of people in 2012, “The Vow” tells the based on a true story tale of a married couple whose deep and profound love is torn asunder by a case of amnesia. Rachel McAdams’ character awakes from a coma or, something equally soap operish, to discover the cut and beautiful, model turned actor Tatum is her husband.

She then inexplicably objects, speaking nonsense in the trailer like, “I don’t remember you” and “You are devilishly handsome and extremely physical fit. Back up off me!” Okay, maybe she doesn’t say that, but how she musters the gaul to do anything but rip her own clothes off at the news this god amongst men is her surprise husband is beyond me.

Thus, in the spirit of pleasant surprises and full on pleasures of the guilty variety, this Wonderful Wednesday is dedicated to capturing the style of the woman (albeit fictional) so appealing she caused Channing Tatum to full press court her (twice!) in hopes of winning her love.

Strap on your longing looks, ladies. This is Wonderful Wednesday.

Cable Knit Boyfriend Cardigan: $19.80

Wrap Cardigan: $32.80

20120201-140422.jpg

Toggle Closure Cardigan: $37.90

Theres something to be said for being comfortable making you feel more sexy. One of the most romantic days I’ve ever experienced was spent at home with my then boyfriend on a rainy day in LA while I was in my period. Both of us spent the entire time slubbing around in the toasty confines on his apartment, me bundled up in a long thrift store cable cardigan, a thin tee and yoga pants. He was never more eager to surf the crimson tide. I’m assuming Channing Tatum feels the same.

Pom Pom Hat: $10.80

Heart Trimmed Necklace: $4.80

Faded Denim Shirt: $22.80

20120201-141806.jpg

Moto-Bomber Jacket: $16.99

Make sure when you put this outfit together you have twinkly, sparkly lights to halo your frame. That way when Channing Tatum somehow, against all odds, despite his strong jaw and no doubt firm, round rump, convinces you to fall in love with him again the moment will be all the more magical.

V-neck Tee: $5.90

20120201-142426.jpg

Floral Cuffed Sleeve Top: $22.80

Wearing something with flowers is key to this moment in the seduction of you by Channing Tatum. Mainly because when he comes rushing into your art studio, or sculpting class, or cheese curdling factory or wherever the Hell they are, he will be subconsciously motivated to pollinate your flower as he takes you on the cool, stone floor.

Forever 21, Wonderful.

Friday Non-WTF Find: Jacket

I know how I’m always picking on Forever 21 for their gross misuses of pleather but after a mini shopping spree in the spangled, multi-level corridors of my Pasadena Forever 21, I found and subsequently purchased a beautiful little bargain.

20120113-142943.jpg

Leatherette Jacket: $24.80

I got mine in brown, but it comes in dark blue and purple as well. Purple, I know. They just HAVE to give it the chance to be fugly.

The pleather is very soft and not noisy or sweaty. The lining is nice and the zippered pocket detail is very luxe looking. For about $25, you’ve got yourself a jacket that will transition perfect from winter into Spring and beyond.

Forever 21, not bad. Not bad at all.

Wonderful Wednesday: All White Everything

Maybe it’s the unseasonably warm weather here in Los Angeles or just the eager beaver in me wanting to get a jump on my bangin’ ass Easter Outfit, but I have a serious hankering to wear me some white.

20120104-131038.jpg

Turtle Neck Sequin Dress: $29.80

Now, I know this colorless color is mostly reserved for the Spring time and the dress code of rap mogul birthday parties, but wearing white can make a lady look so damn fine and fancified it’s worth jumping the gun.

Plus it’s Wonderful Wednesday. And on Wonderful Wednesday, we does what the fuck we WANTS.

20120104-132753.jpg

Mesh Spaghetti Top: $19.80

There is no love lost between me and mesh anything. Most of the time it manages to make the person wearing it look somehow simultaneously sloppy AND like they’re trying too hard, but this top is an exception.

The soft dip of the fabric and the tight, neat circle spaces on the mesh makes it both work and weekend errand appropriate.

20120104-134552.jpg

Embellished Knit Cardigan: $29.80

With a new season of Mad Men perched on the horizon, this ivory cardigan with its delicate bead trim is the perfect way to get your Peggy Olson on.

20120104-140011.jpg

Beaded Burst Clutch: $22.80

We all know beaded Ice Queen envelope clutches are not for everyday wear (at least I HOPE we all know this) but on a special occasion or night out the all white appliqué is subdued enough to be classic and sparkly enough to be eye catching.

20120104-141253.jpg

Sunglasses: $5.80

If these don’t make you feel like Beyonce on Caribbean yacht vacation then I don’t know what will.

Okay, I know what will but where are we going to find a diamond encrusted thong bikini and a Jay Z look-a-like on such short notice? Forget it, lady.

Forever 21, Wonderful.

What Not to Wear on New Years Eve

New Years Eve is a beast of a holiday. It combines the unrealistic expectations of Valentine’s Day, the excessive drinking of a 21st birthday and all the outfit fretting of Halloween rolled into one ridiculous evening that by definition can’t help but disappoint.

This is made even worse by the assumption you should look like your outfit was weaved out of unicorn manes, your make up was applied by a magical fairy godmother and your hair was laid perfectly into place by singing woodland creatures.

Just in case you don’t have a team of fashion savvy mice to sew you a ball gown in time for this December 31, here’s a list of items to avoid wearing as you ring in the new year.

20111230-111821.jpg

Headwrap: $3.80

This is why Swamis and genies of the lamp do not get laid on New Years Eve. That and they’re too busy either following a deeply spiritual, religious path or being a mythical creature of lore.

20111230-112255.jpg

Bodycon Zebra Dress: $19.80

Pro tip: If you can avoid looking like you skinned a gay pride zebra and dipped it in Presto Polyester juice, please try. This is not cute.

20111230-113434.jpg

Sequined Bomber Jacket: $19.80

Unless you plan on doing a slow motion cannon ball off a tall building to coincide with the midnight countdown, do not place this glittering mistake on your body.

20111230-114146.jpg

Sequined Beret: $18.80

Girl, do I even have to say anything. Disco Mushroom is not a good look for anyone, especially at midnight. Make the resolution to keep your dignity in 2012.

Forever 21, Happy New Year!
