As anybody around can tell you, times are tough. Aside from those heinous Kardashian's, nobody is making enough money these days and, trust me, it's not the best idea to be constantly tossing away those paychecks on designer outfits. I am not one of these bloggers and who takes daily pictures of myself standing broodingly on a cobblestone street draped in Miu Miu and Isabel Marant. Who are you girls and where the hell did you get all of the disposable income to not only blog all day (jealous) but to do so while wearing amazing clothes?
So as a shockingly under-paid PR girl, you have to get creative and by creative I mean...Forever 21. I know a lot of you will turn your nose up to this store and yes, I have before as well, but something has changed over there. Yes, it is still unbelievably mass-marketed. Yes, it still isn't the best quality, will only last you one season, and yes, you still can't put it in the washing machine as it will shrivel up to something the size of a mitten BUT certain pieces have gotten a definite makeover. Their store is a lot less trashy-Miami-club-gear and now a lot more cute-dress-to-wear-on-a-date. Forever 21...it's not just for high school girls anymore.
