Every now and then, or maybe more than that, I find myself popping into Forever 21 to check out the new cheap thrills. I never could resist a good deal (see here), and I swear some of my favorite pieces over the years have come from Forever. Remember this coat from 100 years ago? Still have it, still love it. And I wore these favorite faux leather shorts of theirs at least a thousand times before recently retiring them. R.I.P.
On a recent trip I came across this little floral bomber, and I was like, my closet could use that, right? The answer, by the way, is always yes. It’s the cutest floral print with a slightly shrunken fit. For $30 I couldn’t pass it up, and once I got to the checkout line and found out that it was actually on sale for $16? Well that’s a bargain-lover grinning from ear to ear. This little guy sadly seems to be sold out online, BUT I’m linking several similar versions below that are equally worth the enthusiasm.
And once you score the sweet jacket on the cheap, you can mosey over to the Loren Hope website and spend your savings on something sparkly for yourself. I’ve always been a “gold jewels only” type of gal and only recently got into rose gold and mixed metals, but silver is making a serious comeback right now and I can’t say that I’m mad at it. Sometimes you just gotta switch it up a little, right?
Also, my aunt bought me these Tory Burch mules last year, and they are THE most comfortable heels I own, hands-down, bar none. I need them in any other color imaginable, but unfortunately they are all gone. (Besides this lonely little taupe pair that someone needs to scoop up.) I guess my point is that if you ever come across these anywhere in the universe or somehow get the chance to chat with Tory and tell her to remake these, you know what you have to do.
Hope everyone has an amazing weekend – we made it!
