I was this close to not having anything to wear today, y'all.  The better half of my wardrobe is out of commission as it's in the laundry pile and the other half that's left is a mish-mash of odds and ends that didn't make the first cut.  I ended up throwing on this orange top that I bought back in my early days of college (which was over 10 years ago!  anyone wanna guess my age?  lol).  Whoever says Forever 21 clothes fall apart easily has yet to meet this shirt.  It's basically like a little sister to me now.  I kinda half ignore it most of the time and don't give it the attention it deserves, but it always saves me in an emergency.  Does this mean I'm not an only child anymore?  :)

  1. haha, I would bet that you're about the same age as me! Luckily we both look good ;)

    I totally agree re: F21 though! I think many times, as long as you treat it well, it'll last.
