Everyone has guilty pleasures, right? I, for one, could lose an ENTIRE day watching Sex and the City reruns. I enjoy a good buffet and wear drug store makeup. I read tabloid magazines, love sour patch kids, and there was a point in my life when I dunked cheese doodles in chocolate pudding (thankfully this was just a phase and sadly it wasn’t when I was pregnant).
When it comes to fashion, my guilty pleasure is Forever21. The blaring dance music, synthetic fabrics, way-too-bright fluorescent lighting, and the fact that I am usually the oldest person in the store should make me question my desire to shop there, but it doesn’t. I look the other way because the clothes are cute and they are CHEAP! Plus, there is something cathartic about digging through racks overloaded with merchandise while trying not to run over 90 pound teenage girls with my stroller. It’s my go-to place for basic T’s, skinny jeans, fun tops, accessories and trendy pieces. Who cares if its out of style next year? At these prices, you add a few trendy pieces each season without breaking the bank.
The thing about Forever 21 is that they carry limited stock, so if you see something you like you have to jump on it. When I saw this vintage-inspired blue polka dot dress, I grabbed it right away. I paid full price: a whopping $27.80!
