Recently I wrote about a couple of great bargain blazers from Forever 21. I purchased the red buttonless blazer. It turned out to be better than I expected. The Medium fits perfectly and isn’t too snug when over a long sleeve shirt. The sleeves cuff nicely or you could roll them for a more business/casual appearance. The lining is a black and white pinstripe which is a little cheap if you get up close to it…which noone is going to do. I plan on wearing this jacket with….well everything. White jeans, polka dots, stripes, I had a mint dress (similar) I planned on wearing for Easter that looked great with the red blazer over it.
I also purchased the cheetah shorts that I had been eyeing for a month or so. Initially I had wanted the orange cheetah shorts but went with the gray pair instead. It was a good move. I love them!!!! I’ve already worn them and have paired them with pale pinks, whites, and even stripes! The gray makes a neutral which makes them more versatile than most would think.
Lastly the fedora. I have been wanting a fedora for the beach so I don’t have to wear sunglasses because of coon eyes. Unfortunately F21s fedora ran a wee bit small and wouldn’t fit on my head. My roommate also pointed out that I might want to get a bigger brim on the hat. It was really awkward looking perched up on my head. It just didn’t fit but I did love it!
I hadn’t planned on wearing these three different items together but once they arrived and I had them arranged on my floor I couldn’t help but to want to throw them on for the night.
How would you wear Cheetah, Red, and a Fedora?
For some reason, as I was browsing www.NastyGal.com I was drawn to this dress. I didn’t know what it was at first, but I think I have figured it out. It reminds me of the fruit punch outfits my mom and friends moms use to put us in when we were tots. The spandex shorts with melons on them with a T shirt with a watermelon patch smack in the middle adorned with some dirt/popsicle stains.
I miss those summer days where we would hopscotch over to the nearest Kelly’s Kids trunk show and get to pick out our flashy outfits with matching headbands. Maybe thats where my love for colors started?
Anyways. I love this dress. If I was going to Carolina Cup would I wear this?? Yes. I don’t even know if I would wear a belt with it……I like the juvenile feel to it. Will I be purchasing it? Probably so. Will I wear it all summer? I think so.
Go over and check out NastyGal.com……they have some cheap cute clothing. But watch out sometimes it can be a miss. I ordered a couple of things and the fabric was so cheap I couldn’t put it on my body without the fear of breaking out in hives. I am a little dramatic so give it a go. Besides the fabric….is was kindof awkward handing the post office my return package to NASTYGAL.COM. Or was it more awkward I assured him it was just a button down? Oh well.
