Twist

I only make it to an actual Forever 21 store a couple of times a year. In between actual visits, I treat myself to a shop at the virtual store. It’s usually prompted by another blogger raving about a vintagey looking blouse or a surprisingly well-made jacket. This time, it was the buzz about the Tres Paris Twist collection.

Jacket, Forever 21 Twist. Cami, NY & Co. Skirt, Herman Geist (thrifted and shortened). Open-weave leggings and necklace, Forever 21. Shoes, Madden Girl.

I liked nearly everything in the line, but most of it was either way too short or out of stock. I browsed the entire collection and bought only this jacket. It looks like the Tres Paris line is now gone, but the newest Twist offerings are Pinup Girl inspired.

Cute jacket! And I'm in love with your skirt. I'm not usually a fan of florals but there's something about those colors.

I like the sleeves! I'm constantly amazed by how many ways you wear that skirt. Brava!

Cute! Cute! Cute! I came visit your blog after reading your idea on Love At First Shop with the cute hooks for bag to help on her closet situation! I must say I also like very much your outfits! Especially this beautiful floral skirt!

Do you have a bricks and mortar store for their accessories line? It's called Love 21, and yes, I LOVE it. I just got a pair of fingerless faux-leather gloves with bows on the back for just $10! So cute - and you can also find them online.
Speaking of love, I love your new jacket - very cute, and so flattering!

Are you growing your hair out? It looks longer!

Londyn - I am growing it out. I really loved the short cut, but I like the versatility of long hair, too.
