Mysterious WTF

Much like the desire to pierce ones genitals or how what I am assuming to be Lindsay Lohan’s reanimated corpse keeps making all these television appearances and court dates on time, there are some things in this life I just don’t get.

Layered Ruffle Shorts: $17.80

We may now add ruffled shorts to the list.

Why anyone would want the area surrounding their goodies to look like a singed Swiffer duster is beyond me. I am sure some of them may have a hard enough time convincing people that thing isn’t harboring cobwebs as it is. We don’t need a pair of shorts that resemble a mop of Shamwow swatches to add to the unpleasant mystery.

Forever 21, WTF?

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

Old School WTF

It’s been a good long while since I scoped something in Forever 21′s online catalog that literally made me say, “What the fuck?” out loud.

Polka Dot Flowers Top: $13.80

Congratulations, Polka Dot Flowers Top. You broke through that WTF dry spell like a ruffled, mismatched BOSS. And the styling addition of what appear to be piss soaked cutoffs is nothing short of inspired.

My standards are impeccable. My expectations are high. You have exceeded them this day.

Forever 21, WTF and Thank You.

The 5 Things that Ruin an Affordable Find

We’ve all known the pain. The unadulterated let down festival that is seeing an awesome dress, sweater, bottom, top, etc. beckoning to us from the rack. It whispers to you, “Buy me. Buy me and your life will be DOPE.” So you go to it, speed walking across the floor, holding your anticipation in like a person waiting to hear the last matching number of a lotto ticket. Trembling, you reach your goal and gingerly remove the item from the rack only to discover the awful truth. Your dream garment, the article of clothing that was going to change your life, is soiled. SOILED with a deal breaker.

It could be almost anything. The Affordable Find Dealbreaker is completely subjective. It could be rosettes. It could be ruffles, or a hideous print or a minor detail which just completely throws off the entire thing. Whatever it is, it’s a fuck damn bush league cluster eff and it can ruin your whole afternoon.

Here are my personal top 5 deal breakers in affordable fashion finds.

1. Unecessary and Ugly Details

Graphic Crop Top: $9.90

Oh, hey, look. This top looks kind of cool. Just basic, really. Wait a minute … is that …

Yep. Yeah. It’s a giant eagle face. Well, it’s not THAT bad …

Seriously? Seriously crop top? Side boob action? No chance.

2. Too much Skank

Sequins Dress: $20.99

Okay, okay. Little Black Dress. Looks cute enough. Some nice details on it. Let’s just get a better look here…

Holy ovaries, that’s short! If it wasn’t for the tiny shadow and black void of Spanx we could probably get a good eye full of camel toe right now. And that’s when she’s standing still. Imagine teetering around on heels wearing that shirt masquerading as a dress. An innocent walk to the car could turn into a full blown booty show in mere moments.

3. Sneaky Romper

Peacock Feather Romper: $19.80

Ohh! What a sweet little summer dress. I hope they have one left in my size!

WAIT…

WTF IS THIS? SHORTS?!?!?

This is the WORST. Rompers are the ninjas of the fashion world. I’ve gotten INTO the DRESSING room with a romper in my midst and not known it until I was half naked and ready to put the thing on.

4. Pukey Print

Bow Skirt: $15.80

Hmm.. kind of cute. I love pleats. It’s very pretty girl on summer vacay at the cape. But I’ve been burned before. Let’s get in there for a closer look.

Leopard. Print. Bows.

SHIT.

5. RUFFLES

Ruffled Shirt Dress w/ Belt: $24.80

Poseidon’s trident, look at that mess! Ruffle on ruffle action at it’s most natty and hardcore! She looks like Oscar the Grouch’s bottom bitch. I half expect the next product shot to be of her poking her head out of a trash can having a surly interaction with a gigantic yellow bird costume.

Forever 21, You… What Have you DONE?

WT inFantilism

If I had to name the least sexy and most disturbing fetish on the planet it would probably be  the one for adult diapers.

But for a small subset of folks, adults who dress and act like babies are the most erotic thing ever and the ultra hip designers at Forever 21 have got their finger on the fashion and passion pulse of the infantilism world.

Price: $19.80

Merry Christmas, pervs.

Gross, sexy baby shorts. Good for a night out on the town or a cozy evening in with your rattle and binky. Just doing the cursory research for this post made me want to thoroughly wash both my eyes and soul.

Forever 21,  WTF?

Fugly Shrugly

I’m not the biggest fan of ruffles.

Nor am I the biggest fan of skin-tight half sweaters that accentuate nothing but the joint between my shoulders and arms.

Enter the Ruffle Knit Shrug:

Price: $13.80

Let’s pause for a moment and forget about the absurd ruffles, which are too short to provide any neck warmth and too plentiful to provide any sanity.

Briefly disregard the overall uncomfortable, bunchy polyester clusterfuck of it all.

Just focus on the models face.

The model, whose sole purpose here is to sell the garment by inspiring our lustful envy, could only muster a look of peeved bewilderment, as if someone had just told a racist joke in mixed company or asked her to take her shoes off before coming into their house.

Forever 21, WTF?
