A spring in my step.

I worked all day today like I do every Saturday and Sunday.  To brighten up my day on this rainy Sunday, I wore a bright colored cardigan and skirt.  I bought this outfit months ago and I have yet to wear it yet.  I bought both the cardigan and skirt from the Liz Claiborne Outlet right before it closed.  I scored both pieces for $9.99!

Cardigan: Liz Claiborne Outlet $4.99 

Skirt: Liz Claiborne Outlet $4.99

T-Shirt: Forever 21 

Watch: Bulova

Jewelery: my grandmother’s (vintage)

P.S.  I cut my hair shorter too–in anticipation of summer!

Oh, pretty please?

I want these for Christmas.  They are not my normal go-to pair of shoes—I’m almost always in heels, but with the weather we’ve been having lately, these are perfect.  I’d pair these boots with a pair of skinny jeans and a chunky sweater.

Swoon!

Cheers to finally getting it right.

Hey, Forever 21!  I’ll raise a glass to you tonight for finally getting an outfit right!  Don’t get me wrong fashion darlings, I love Forever 21.  They are great for accessories, cheap prices, and trendy items.  Lately, though, and I hate to admit it–I’m really not digging the length of the dresses.

I’m a pretty short girl.  I’m only about 5’3 without heels so I’m on the shorter side.  It boggles my mind that every time I find a great dress at Forever 21, my booty is hanging out.  Granted, I may have a little more junk in the trunk than most girls, but I’m not going to wear a dress that would help me get work on a corner. Call me conservative, but I prefer people to be looking at me and not gawking at my skankalicious attire.

Is the short length of the dresses the reason for the cheap costs?  Can F21 not afford an extra inch of fabric?  I’m curious.  Someone, please, enlighten me.

For the time being, I’m totally gushing over this dress, hoping that when I get to the store, it covers my bum.  I could always rock some spandex under it (Um, no! Ew!)

Gorgeous design though!

Baby Mama.

Forever 21 has recently unveiled its new maternity line.

Yes. I was pretty shocked too.  Last time I checked, F21 was marketed for young girls.

I hardly shop at F21 because it’s geared towards young girls–tweens to young teens. Have you seen how short their dresses are lately?

1. I’m not wearing those at my age.  I’m 21 (insert F21 pun here).

2. I’m not a skank.

It bothers me and I really hope it bothers you that a company whose main target audience is young girls, is making a maternity line.

That all aside, the line does look nice.  The prices are affordable and considering a woman is only in true maternity clothes around her third trimester, there is no reason to break that bank.

I wish that Forever 21 would make a new campaign- not just for pregnant moms but for an older audience.  This left field pitch for an maternity would have been more successful, in my opinion, if F21 made a few lines to target women in their 20s who are about to enter the workforce or something.

But that’s not for me to market—unless F21 corporate is hiring.  (Call me–I graduate soon!)

In closing, I will not take this out on the clothes.  The maternity line is pretty fab for the price.
