Forever21...
































 









Top: Forever21Leggings: JCrewJacket: American Eagle: Steve Madden old (loving these)Sunglasses: Tom Ford

I don't shop at Forever21 often.  My personal style is more on the classic/traditional end of the spectrum; however,  I do like to browse the store when looking for trendy pieces.  For example, a few weeks ago, Jordan and I were in Charleston, and I found the most beautiful top with leather sleeves.  Said top was perfect. It was a deep, rich purple tee that felt as if it was made of the softest cotton known to man. It had the right amount of stretch, and it had real, supple leather sleeves.  The only draw back was that this tee was $198... I just couldn't do it.  I couldn't make such a large purchase on such a trendy item, so I headed down the street to Forever21.  Now this top is not purple, and the sleeves aren't real leather, but for less than $15, I felt I could make the gamble on this trendy piece.  Thank you Forever21 for always having cheap, trendy clothes that are exactly what the doctor ordered. 
Happy Tuesday!

  7. I hate it when super trendy pieces are so expensive! I just saw an adorable sweatshirt today for $300! No way :) This F21 top is definitely a good substitute, it's so cute!

  12. That is a gorgeous tee and I am looking for something similar with Faux Leather Sleeves. Great color once again. You are rocking more Burgundy. BTW, you always have the best Designer Glasses, too. I am jealous.
