No Ma’am

This $27.80 Love 21 by Forever 21 gold lamé creation features an open back with an oh-so-classy elastic strap and front slit. 

We are not impressed.  Your thoughts?

Cat Scratch Fever

These tees by Forever 21 are a definite “No ma’am.”  Trust us: the world is not ready for your tribal cheetah, jaguar sublimation or galactic tiger to be unleashed.  There are more fashionable ways to let your inner fierce kitty roar without looking like an alley cat.

Check out haute mommy Beyonce in these Elson silk crepe tapered pants by A.L.C., worn with a loose-fitting neutral blouse and the to-die-for (and sold out)  Christian Louboutin Unbout Illusion pumps (LOVE the way the PVC and patent leather cap toe create a d’Orsay look).

The Look for Less: Kate Spade Bow Bracelet

I love the thought of wearing a bow and packaging myself as a gift, but with this Kate Spade two-tone bracelet’s $128 pricetag (now $79.99 via 6pm.com) I had a feeling I’d have to admire this one from afar! I found the perfect compromise with Forever 21’s glossy black bow cuff (and it was easy on my pocketbook at under $5!).  It’s so easy to find current trends at “fast fashion” stores like Forever 21, H&M, Wet Seal, or Charlotte Russe that mimic more expensive pieces.  While my bracelet is no longer available online (that’s the downside; you have to be quick about buying because these stores sell out), this one is quite similar.

Harpo, Who Dis Woman?

We’re surprised our friend (in the head) over at WTForever21 hasn’t covered this crime against fashion.  Yes, the 1970s/Annie Hall look is back, with palazzo pants, flowy blouses and floppy hats.  But wear this flammable, unsubtle disaster masquerading as pants from Forever 21 and you will look like an extra from the Miss Celie’s Folkspants scene in The Color Purple.  And no, we don’t mean that in a good way.

This is the last time palazzo pants worked (around the 0:23 mark).
