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.

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.

Crafts for Cat Ladies in Training

This has to be one of my favorite “spin” descriptions of a Forever 21 garment, ever.

Crochet Knit Shawl: $15.84

“Snag granny’s style with this tiered crochet shawl.”

Man, oh, man – if I had a nickle for every time I rifled through my grandmother’s closet looking for something to wear on a first date.

I can smell the old lady funk coming off this thing through the computer screen. It looks like the product of a junior college class called, “Crafts for the Forever Alone” or “Crafts for Women who Have just Plain Given up and said ‘Fuck it. I’m just going to be with my cats.’”

Well, let me tell you something – don’t kid yourself, even CATS would you judge you for wearing this. Especially cats.

Forever 21, Hiss.
