So yesterday, after quite the tolling day, I decided to visit the local mall! I’ve been scoping out Forever21.com for a while so I decided to stop by the store and to my surprise I found some really awesome piece that don’t look as inexpensive as they are! Check them out:
So this little number…how fun?! It’s a chiffon lime top with animal print panels and then the skirt is a lovely, ultra-flattering black a-line skirt. What I love about this dress is that it’s really fun and stylish without
Here’s a detailed shot–I love the color combo! The black and dark animal print keep things Fall/Winter-friendly. Speaking of Winter, just because the cold weather is coming doesn’t mean you should put this in the back of your closet. This dress would look very chic with black tights and black flats!
The second piece I found and loved was…
A cool military green jacket. I love this piece! It’s great with jeans and a striped tee, or a casual black shift dress. I was a little nervous about the bottom pocket placement, seeing as I like my hip area to look smooth and not bulky, but I like the fit! You can cinch it in at the waist if you want or unroll the sleeves – it’s a really versatile jacket.
Here’s a view of the back. Between the darting, different snaps and cinching it’s a nice jacket! The hood adds an element of casual coolness. Honestly, it’s the color that drew me in most – I think this green looks really great on everyone! You can style to stay casual, or layer on some bright jewelry for a most fashion-forward look.
