Acid Wash Denim Jumpsuit

There comes a time in the life of every multi-national clothing retailer when they must face a challenge. A challenge seemingly insurmountable. The challenge being how to make jumpsuits more dumb.

Button Up Denim Jumper: $37.80

Lovelies, Forever 21 has wrestled that challenge into the dirt, wrapped it in acid wash denim from head to toe and hogtied it with a good, sturdy price tag.

Pleated fronts. *Shiver*

Side fact* – this piece was modeled after what NASCAR pit crews and house painters in Mentos commercials wear in their downtime.

Forever 21, WTF?

*Not a fact at all.

Jersey Shore Style

We all remember the expertly placed PR stunt about a month back where Abercrombie & Fitch allegedly offered to pay MTV’s Jersey Shore star The Situation a hefty sum of shekels to NOT wear their clothes on camera.

Having been in the business of dressing preppy Bros and high school girls who can’t quite afford Diesel but wouldn’t be caught dead in GAP, Abercrombie & Fitch supposedly didn’t want to be associated with a lifestyle principally revolving around the gym, the laundry mat and The Club. Are you still in your chair? Because if you are, you’re a stronger person than I – the irony of this news knocks ME right on my ass every time I think of it.

With news of  The Jersey Shore losing its tax breaks to shoot in the namesake city and the general feeling of the whole thing getting kind of old already, who besides MTV is going to take a chance on selling merchandise associated with the beat bumping, hard partying, grenade smooshing crew that single fistedly keeps Dep Gel from going bankrupt?

Saved by the WTF

Certain trends, like a one-night stand or a mysterious rash, add nothing to our lives and serve to only seriously overstay their welcome.

The 80′s trend is one such rude and unruly visitor.

Vibrant Geo Top: $10.80

I can’t think of a style choice more up its own ass right now. At least the whole Ed Hardy thing had the decency to slither back into the Drakkar Noir scented darkness from whence it came. But no matter how much I want it to end, tops with brightly colored shapes that look like drunken toddlers drew them seem to persist at Forever 21.

The fact that every article of clothing like this top hasn’t spontaneously burst into flames or unhooked itself from hangers in the store and walked straight into heavy traffic is PROOF no one is listening to my many prayers.

Forever 21, like, WTF?
