Today, Melissa and Lindsey took the Leopard Panel challenge. The results? Ever so fucking sweet.
“My best friend and I are avid readers of WTForever21.com and honestly we constantly talk about how we’re surprised we didn’t create this website first haha…so as we were browsing through our local Forever21 in Tallahassee today, we came across this little gem and snapped a pic of my friend Melissa (who quickly slipped it on over her pants to avoid the 25-person long line for the fitting room) wearing it. It’s zoo-a-lisciously dreadful. Enjoy.”
One thing I love about being an adult is the ability to design and decide my own vacations.
You see, I’m turning 28 in August of this year and after much deliberation and doubt and a whole lot of “I’m too old to celebrate my birthday” thoughts, I have decided on not only WHAT I want to do for my birthday but also on where I want to be.
And that where happens to be in the desert. Palm Springs to be exact. The crazy hipster haven of The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs to be even more so.

Just picture it. Sun, fun, drinks, cabanas, fire, food and poolside shenanigans. Baking in the delightful haze of cheeseburgers and frozen liquor treats. All this and more I could not resist.
This Wonderful Wednesday is dedicated to pieces with the rosey and red colors that match fiery, Mexican hearts around the globe and all the people who will become enchilé from the fiery Mexican food to be consumed this Cinco de Mayo.
While I can understand how the whole “I’m covered up but, just kidding, not really, you can almost see my bits if it wasn’t for the mini skirt underneath this large swath of fabric” thing could be appealing to certain people.
Such as people who enjoy watching porn through a semi-transparent piece of cloth. Or people who want the look of patterned tights without committing to full foot coverage. (Hey, if I can imagine it, trust me, these people are out there and you have probably shared an elevator with them.)
What troubles me about this trend is not what you CAN see, it’s what may be lurking beneath that may pop out.
It’s probably just my own imagination, which we already know to be … a little off… but when I see this:
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.
Listen up, ladies who like to dress as sexy insert film or television character here every Halloween! Forever 21 has made their first, clear cut addition to the many clothing items in their catalog which can be used for costumes.
Reader Anjanie caught her local Forever 21 mannequins dropping it like it was ever so hot this week.
I have to admit, it looks less like dancing and more like someone in a line outside a Hollywood club who dropped their birth control pill on the sidewalk and is trying to pinch it off the curb between their press on nails.
Unless you’ve been living under a large rock for the past few months, you’ve probably heard some kind of news on the Republican presidential candidates. (Honestly, even if you did live under a rock you’ve probably heard some news about it – what kind of rock doesn’t have Internet access now a days?)
As the 2012 elections draw near and candidates begin to release their ads, both attack and otherwise, I have a feeling we’ll all be treated to a parade of corporately funded WTF the likes of which our airwaves and internets have scarcely seen.
Exhibit A: Herman Cain’s ad which was just dropped in my inbox by a friend.
I think YouTube commenter JohnVogel561 sums this up best, “… that smile at the end. Have you ever farted, and tried not to get caught, but the smell is so God Awful, that someone calls you out on it, and all you can do is smile, well that is what that last scene looks like.”
Now, I know what you’re thinking – Rachel, politics are boring. Rachel, what does this have to do with fashion? Rachel, Herman Cain looks like a broke ass, busted, creepier version of Samuel L. Jackson.
Yes, nothing and yes. But for the simple fact of this ad making me laugh until my ass literally fell off my body, I am dedicating this Wonderful Wednesday to the Republican candidates.
How am I dedicating it to them? By featuring items I think embody the spirit and persona of each candidate’s recent campaign ads.
These pretty well sum up Herman Cain’s ad. At first glance, you THINK you know what it’s about. Fine, those are high waisted, booty destroying Mom Jeans. Fine. But then they start smoking a cigarette and you’re all like, “What? Is that a quilt-like swath of material coming out the crotch? Why would they do that with jeans?” And then you see them start smiling super slowly. And then you see that super slow smile turn into a creepy, Bond villain chuckle and it hits you.
Those aren’t jeans at all. It’s ugliest skirt you’ve ever seen. And it’s running for president.
