While I dream of one day being able to own a closet filled with the likes of Gucci, Chanel and Prada, I currently have a salary that would force me to forgo eating food for a solid two weeks to afford even one earring from such a fine establishment.
So, in desperation, newly post-collegiates like myself find a temporary mecca in the one and only Forever 21. And the greatest part about this discount superstore?! Why, the clearance of course!
Just yesterday, I meandered into the sale section and scored a cobalt blue pea coat, a pair of floral/white cutoff jean shorts, a zebra top, and a two-tone mustard/cream dress – all for under $24! XIEOLIDAKVNLERIGHONVUEJHRLFAOWEGHO! That was me being excited. In case you didn’t get it.
So today, I busted out one of my purchases in a mod and retro-inspired fall getup (um…it’s already October…how’d that happen?!?!). I paired this two-tone gem with patterned black tights, my patent leather Guess peep toes, a few layers of necklaces, and arm candy (every outfit needs a little candaaaay!). At my cubicle I threw on a black cardigan, and BOOM! Perfectly appropriate for work!
It was especially cute when I took my dog for a walk this afternoon and had to bend over when he decided to utilize el bano – numero dos – right on the sidewalk. I may have had a poo bag in hand, but I looked damn good with that poo bag in my hand. I mean, according to every romcom, that’s exactly how we’re all supposed to meet our dream man, right?!
Ok, maybe not. But where there lacks a sexy god of a man, there exists style – and that is timeless 😉
