Skirts and Stripes

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Forever 21 blazer, t-shirt, skirt and shoes, Betsey Johnson Handbag

Who says you can't put together an entire outfit from Forever 21. Now, usually I like to mix my pieces from Forever 21 with more expensive lines, but every once in while I seem to put together an outfit and realize it's all from that store. I've been really into stripes lately and I also love these body con skirts. They are perfect for tucking in a loose tank or tee. I have to admit that this outfit was more comfortable with a coat (due to the 50 degree whether -which is darn cold for where I live), but I went with out it for the pictures. I also was having a terrible hair day and so I went for a nappy braid. That always seems to do the trick.

Oh, I've been craving pulling my hair back into a braid for a few weeks now- it's like you're in my mind!

I love this whole look. F21 can be amazing on certain occasions, hm?

What's up, fellow Chictopian?

I have the tendency to pile on the Forever 21 all at once as well, especially lately. I generally like to mix thrifted/vintage with new, but the monster that F21 is has been producing some pretty stellar stuff, with my kind of price tag.

I'm a walking fucking ad, aren't I? They should really hire me. CEO material, right here. Except, without the ugly box suits.

BTW, you're looking great, as always. XO
