stripes + stripes

Apr 6, 2012



Another title for this post could be something along the lines of splurge versus steal, because the skirt I'm wearing is similar to one from Club Monaco. The shocking thing is, in terms of quality this Forever 21 skirt is comparable to it! The tell-tale signs of a cheaply made garment aren't there; usually with fast fashion items the stripes don't line up along the seams, but surprisingly, that isn't the case with this skirt. The material's a good weight too; a thick cotton with a tiny bit of stretch. The only difference is the Club Monaco skirt is a few inches longer, but other than that they're pretty much the same. Well, except for the price, the Forever 21 skirt was $7.50 and the Club Monaco one was $125!!!

I hope you're all having a nice long weekend, mine started yesterday and I couldn't be happier. A lot of my friends are home for the holiday :) Happy Easter everyone!
