Quality not quantity.

Pants: Paige Denim, Top/Necklace: F21, Cardigan: Old Navy, Shoes: Steve Madden, Bag: H&M.

In the grandeur of Forever 21 this little pink blouse was calling my name, in the far back corner it hung on the wall waiting for me to come and buy her. I knew she fit before I even tried her on and when she told me she was only $8 we both cried together. 

My love affair with Forever 21 is out of control. You can't not love it. You also can't not love my new Jeans. Yes NEW! I can't even tell you the last time I bought new jeans. 

You see shortly after getting married and having the devil of a drug of birth control in me I went crazy and hated wearing jeans, and never ever wore them. This insanity has slowly been wearing off, thank goodness right? How does someone live without jeans, they don't it was hard, people thought I was always dressing up all.... fancy?

So I found these guys and I actually felt beautiful in them not like a large circus animal eating your peanuts and stealing your mother's good Sunday hat. 

I know I'm all about the affordable fashion but sometimes you have to buy quality and everyday jeans are something you should not buy on the cheap. I think they fit into the staple items category. All staple item's should be of good if not great quality, meaning they will last a long time and you can wear them with anything. 

So sometimes $12 F21 jeans just don't cut it, you need something that is going to fit your body correctly and make you feel good,not like a circus animal. But then other times cheap is awesome, like my pink top, and my faux watch.

  3. This was hilarious. And I agree, quality anyday. Then again, I just scour the 75% off racks at high end stores to find cheap, quality items. Best of both worlds.
