Street Vile: Couples Edition

3 lovely comments

2nd Runner-Up: Matching whites, brights, and tennies. The wife really led this couple to near victory with her cargo bell-bottoms and denim bag.

Runner-Up: Another matching couple, but this time up top with their blue wife-beaters. However, it was the husband's semi-mullet and army boots that pulled them through.

Grand Winner: A couple with equal amounts of style. Fluffy brown hair, Hawaiian print shirt, backwards cap, suede backpack. Teamwork, teamwork.

Forever 21: DC Grand Opening!!

1 lovely comments
This Saturday was the grand opening of DC's first Forever 21 (there are tons in the metro area but none actually in the District). All customers got 10% off, which in F21 terms is a lot. It's located in the Woodies Building at 1025 F Street NW if you want to go!

As much as I'm into F21's clothes, I was more impressed by the workers' style. They were incredibly creative and bold - I loved them! I also ran into a customer or two who looked beautifully put-together. Get inspired!

The weekend my wallet hated me...

3 lovely comments
July has incredible sales apparently... haven't noticed before. Here are (most of) my purchases!

My favorite purchase of the week:

BDG shoes - Urban Outfitters, $19.99, orig. $48

Blazer - H&M, $20, orig. $35

Circle scarf - Commander Salamander, $4, originally $12

Lace top - Charlotte Russe, $15
I was surprised to see this store have some decently cute clothes!

Bonjour tank - Forever 21, $11.70

Gray striped tee - UO, $9.99, orig. $18

Scalloped shorts - F21, $26
Since I can't exactly afford the Chloe version (as seen here on FabSugar), I opted for a much cheaper version from F21. They came with a tacky rhinestone belt but I'll replace it with a leather breaded one.

The most expensive item I've ever bought from F21!

One Trend I Won't Latch Onto...

You will not see me wearing these:

Elle Street Chic

Opening Ceremony

Leather mini skirts and shorts: too hot for sweaty summer, too cool for fall. I see no point. Do you think the impact is worth the lack of utility?
