Forever 21, my favorite store, has been letting me down lately. These recent mishaps have been getting on my nerves and now I'm going to voice them as respectfully as I can. The list I'm about to provide are my questionings of Forever 21's taste in attire to advertise as "fashion".
Unfortunately the first item I cannot find a picture of, but please believe me when I ask you to go to Forever Love at the Westfarms Mall by the Starbucks stand and look for this THING they're trying to sell: rainbow sequined berets. What. The. Hell. This wasn't a "few scattered sequins" - this beret was the kind sold at halloween costume warehouses. This didn't belong there. Daylynn will vouch for me when I say we saw a RAINBOW SEQUIN BERET. Christ.
Second item: The Sprinkle skirt. Just because you love sprinkles doesn't mean you should wear them. Even worse, elasic waist.
While we're at it, third item: Elastic waist jeans. Okay, maybe if you are in elementary school. Or pregnant. But seriously, what?
Then this made things even worse: The Parka article.

As Daylynn and I also observed, Forever 21 has been abusing plaid and peep toe shoes. Not all shoes need to have a peep toe. In fact, this french bootie would be just PERFECT without a peep toe. And this outburst of plaid not only makes me reminisce of my days of plaid skirts that I voluntarily wore in high school and lumberjacks, but also makes me vow to not wear anything plaid. Think I'm extreme? I don't even go to an overly liberal and artsy college where plaid (or even better, GINGHAM) is like a uniform. Why not add the scarf?
Oh, and Forever 21? The late 80's and early 90's fashion you're trying to sell? Don't. A girl will never be attractive because of a huge shirt, a manly vest, and elastic waist jeans. I'm just holding my breath for the return of the catsuit. Avoid that bandwagon and throw rotten fruit at it!
