If you haven't figured it out now, I'm a bargain hunter who likes to play around with styles and prints. Good deals make me excited, and a buy one get one free sale could draw tears from my eye. So you can only imagine my excitement when I discovered a full outfit at the Forever 21 buy one get one free sale.
I tend to avoid graphic tees unless they have a musician on them (if I'm being completely honest). The only graphic tees I wear are covered with Jimi Hendrix, Tupac, and Snoop Dogg. When I saw this graphic sweater at Forever 21, I knew I needed to have it. The words on the sweater drew me to it, Fashionista Advisory: Explicit Style. I felt the shirt would be perfect for a blogger like myself, and the $4.99 price (originally $29.90) was perfect. This sweater may still be available at select Forever 21 Stores.
My next find at the Forever 21 sale was a pair of grey boyfriend jeans. At first sight, these jeans looked like they were good quality. They were a higher price ($34.90) which typically equates to better quality in Forever 21. I was wrong. These jeans are cheaply made, poorly stitched and made of the thinnest denim. Shortly, after taking the photo below, this pair of loose fitting jeans ripped leaving an incredibly large hole in the seat area while I was walking. Do not buy these jeans, save your money. I've never purchased a pair of jeans that ripped, and am normally satisfied with a purchase of jeans from Forever 21. If I hadn't gotten this pair of jeans free in the sale (they were also $4.99) I would be completely upset.
To accesorize my outfit, I added my extra large fedora hat from Forever 21 for $11.99 (on sale) and my silver hoop earrings. I choose black heeled boots, which were purchased from Charming Charlie's a few years back and my one of a kind black leather feathered purse. I'm a sunglass fiend, and have over 50 pairs of sunglasses that I've collected over the years, a true waste of money if you ask some. For this outfit, I choose my favorite pair, my silver "Ozzy Osborne" style round frame glasses. I've had this pair for years and don't recall where I purchased them, although similar sunnies can be found on Forever21.com.
Now that I've ruined the jeans in this picture, I'll have to come up with other outfit ideas for this sweater! I'll be sure to show them off in a later post!
