Wonderful or WTF: High Waist Overalls

I always say some people can make anything look good. On them, the biggest WTFs become the best scenarios.

Every once in a while WTForever21.com readers decide to test the fashion fates and see if they can overturn a miscarriage of style.

Exhibit A:

“When I first saw these pants I thought, ‘Who on earth would ever wear those?’ I gave Forever 21 the benefit of the doubt since Halloween was fast approaching, reasoning they were probably reaching out to their railway professioned and old paper boy clientele. So I bought a pair for a one time use costume even if I was dissatisfied with the way I looked when I tried them on in the fitting room. After going home and trying to ignore the fact that I bought something for $20+ dollars that I was never going to wear, I thought of giving them a second chance. Low and behold they are wonderful and I am glad I have ever pitied them in the first place.”

WHAT’S THE VERDICT, CHICKENS?

Has she salvaged those overalls?

Are they Wonderful or still WTF?

Let us know in the comments!

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

It was the Best of Pants, It was the Worst of WTFs

“Please, sir.”

High Rise Overalls: $24.80

“May I have some more fabric? So that I may completely engulf this girl’s torso in periwinkle polyester and take this high rise overall party to the holy land of underboob?”

“MORE? High Rise Overalls has asked for MORE!”

These pants should be beaten within an inch of their old timey lives and then thrown into an orphanage for things with rolled hems that come in the color periwinkle.

More fabric, indeed.

Forever 21, WTF?

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.

Swamp Ass

You know that thing where you’ve been out in the sun all day and it’s really hot and humid and your shirt is all moist and clinging to your torso and you feel like you need to shower but you can’t because you’re in a restaurant or at the park or something and then you get an itch on your lower back from some grass or whatever and then you go to scratch it and realize your butt crack has turned into a tropical rain forest?

Satin Floral Wide Leg Pants: $29.80

These pants are the visual equivalent of that feeling.

It looks like a colony of spores are springing forth from what appears to be here abnormally long ass crack and pancake flat cheeks. If you KNEW these pants did this to the MODEL’S ass, WHY, oh why would you provide photographic evidence of this to people considering making a purchase? These make her ass look like it’s trying to escape onto her back. It reminds me of Station’s awesome Martian but from Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.

Forever 21, Heinous.

Hot Mesh Mess

Until today, I’ve avoided writing much about the half mesh, half solid trend in pants, maxi skirts and dresses this year. I guess I thought it would fix itself or go away on its own, like parking tickets or unidentified  skin rashes (fingers still crossed).  But, alas, upon inspection of Forever 21′s New Arrivals area online, I found more selections in this schizophrenic trend.

Lace Maxi Skirt: $17.80 

Neither sexy nor modest, this hot mess of mesh defies seasons and all fashion logic.

Fishnet Dress: $15.80

Frightening to both fish and man, this dress pulls double duty in the dumpy department.

Lace Maxi Dress: $27.80

This is what Wednesday Adams wore to her Winter formal.

Velvet Burnout Maxi Skirt: $29.80

Just enough leg to be sexy. Just enough fleur de lis to be suspected of traveling to this dimension from an unknown world where  velvet and chiffon peacefully co-exist.

Lace Flare Leggings: $22.80

These bell bottoms are funky. And not in the George Clinton, Atomic Dog, “We Want the Funk, the Whole Funk, Nothin’ But the Funk,” way. More like the “Where in the shit am I going to wear these pants to? A Goth disco party?” way.

Mesh Knit Pants: $17.80

Mesh. Knit. PANTS. Honestly, I mean, the name really does say it all.

Floral Chiffon Pants: $19.80

Chiffon and what look like loose fitting Bermuda shorts underneath. SO turned on right now.

Forever 21, WTF?

Woven WTF

*Sigh*

Leopard Woven Pants: $24.80

It’s Sunday, so I am just going to leave this here for us all to think about.

Consider the print, the cut, the ankles and the pairing of the shoes.

And finally …

Consider the shame.
