don't be fooled!

caution everyone! forever 21 is trying to make us believe that wearing jungle print is a good idea. they dedicated an entire section of the union square store to leopard and tiger and zebra and whatever else you can think of print. blah! no time, in my opinion, is ever a good time, to wear such prints. however! i did find this lovely, flowy skirt there the other day and while the print is very much, not a jungle print, i kind of liked it's feminine floral pattern.

tank top: target
belt: thrifted
skirt: f21
shoes: uo
necklace: birdhouse brooklyn

I've been browsing the dresses on their site, and I've been trying to talk myself out of buying far too many of them. I can't help it. I'm a sucker for a cute, girly dress.

What I really need, though, is a job there, so I can get a discount and at least partially justify buying things all of the time. *Sigh*

I completely agree about the jungle print. I've always been adverse to it and didn't know if it was just me. Thanks for the back up. Though I will forgive Forever 21 their lack of taste in this regard since I own far too much of their clothing to hate on them extensively.

I'm not such a big fan of jungle prints either, but then again, maybe it's because I've never tried it out myself... You look lovely in that outfit.

BTW, would you like to do a link exchange with my blog?

i saw this skirt on the f21 website and thought it was lovely (especially compared with all the jungle jazz going on, as you mentioned). i like the outfit you've created!

Mila said...
