Let me be the first to tell those of you who forgot about Forever 21 that the store is worth a second look. Like I’m sure a lot of you did, I abandoned Forever21 a few years ago, after I got really tired of their clothes falling apart in the washing machine. Things at Forever21 have changed for the better, though! The trend retailer recently stepped up their game, improving the quality, fit and styles of their clothing.
I was shocked when I came across this amazing top that looked like it was something I could never afford, straight out of Tash Oakley’s closet. Want to know the best part? It cost me only $30, but it looks and feels like an $100 top. The back detail is unbelievable, with the most adorable button-up back and shoulder tie. If you can’t tell, I’m obsessed. This perfect little crop made the best addition to my late summer wardrobe and can be perfectly paired with almost any bottom.
