Wonderful Wednesday: Sophie’s Choice

As all of you would know if you were part of the awesome, totally exclusive and cool Facebook club for WTForever21, I have been in Seattle on business for the past few days.

As I’m otherwise indisposed, today’s post is brought to you by an adorable 9-year-old fashion prodigy named Sophie, who just happens to be the daughter of my de facto boss on this wonderful excursion.

Cropped Cut Out Shoulder Top: $17.80

After we finished giggling about the shorts, Sophie threw down her take on this adventurous look:

“I like the top and the color but the pants are weird. I like how it’s not see threw (sic) and it is wavy. I think the neckless (sic) goes really well with the outfit.”

Now, before you start making jokes about how blogging is so easy a 9-year-old could do it, let me pose to you THIS quandary:

Is this so simple a 9-year-old can do it OR are those shorts so secure in their mayorship of Crazy Town, that even a 9-year-old can SEE it?

Talk amongst yourselves.

Wonderful Wednesday: Palms Springs Getaway

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.

Now there’s only one thing left to do, chickens.

Plan the outfits!

Get ready for the hot, hot heat!

It’s Wonderful Wednesday.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Top to Bottom: Wearing a Shirt as a Skirt

Keeping on the cusp of new fashion trends is hard work, if you consider hard work to be window shopping and finding a storage space big enough to house the hundreds of old magazines I refuse to toss out. And trends change so quickly, cycling through the truly innovative and back around to the same old, sometimes it can be hard to keep up with what’s chic and what’s shit.

Now comes a trend that seems to straddle the worlds of retro and ridiculous. BEHOLD – the Shirt as a Skirt silhouette.

The last time I tied a shirt around my waist was probably in the first grade and, not surprisingly, it wasn’t for fashion’s sake. As a special Fantastic Friday treat, J., the beautiful face, closet and mind behind JsEverydayFashion.com, is guest posting on WTForever21 and has braved the waters of this daring trend, going where only people who have accidentally pissed their pants have gone before (and manages to look FABULOUS doing it!)

Here’s J’s take on the look, top to bottom.

“Shit guys I forgot my pants.”

Don’t worry, it happens to me *all* the time. Which is why I was so elated/relieved/excited when I found this new trend on Chictopia. An answer to all of our pesky pants-less conundrums: you can now wear your denim shirt as a skirt! Not only is it so freaking hot right now, but it’s also a fun magic trick that you can use to impress your friends at the next house party. Does it look like I’m sporting a long-sleeve shirt tied around my waist 80′s style? Well, yes, I technically am… I’m just also wearing it instead of pants…

This trend is coming soon to a Forever 21 near you. Will you rock the shirt-as-skirt? Or pass on this denim magic trick?

Check out J’s blog, J’s Everyday Fashion, to see her try out all the latest trends and runway looks for less.

And just in case you wanted to give this a go yourselves, here are the basics, F21 style.

Snap Up Denim Shirt (skirt): $19.80

Extended Basic Tank: $6.80

Forever 21, Fantastic.
