Summer O' Fun

summer is FINALLY getting exciting! Today I went and grabbed coffee with two of my guy friends (wink michelle, alena, and jessica) and then we went and played Wii at one of their houses. Tomorrow I am going shopping with Alena and Michelle. Jessica would be there too but sadly she cannot because of her recent knee surgery :[.

Tomorrow the real reason I am going to the mall is because I need a semi-formal dress for formal night on the EUROPEAN CRUISE I am going on next week! (it will be my first time in europe and i am exceptionally excited in case you couldn't tell!) Unfortunately, I am making ANOTHER trip to forever 21...I know, I know I have a PROBLEM! But I need to go the mall because my brother needs to shop too so my dad can drop us off at the same place, and until I can drive (two more months, two more months) I cannot get to any thrift stores. But you better believe that as soon as I CAN drive, the first thing I am doing is finding a thrift store nearby and going shopping!

I looked at the forever website to find some options, what do you think? I'm tight on money so I'd rather buy one that I can dress down to wear on a day-to-day basis.

I think this one might be the winner, because it seems the most versatile:
I have been dying for something floral, and this one is cute. I am planning on buying a pair of knee socks tomorrow, so I could definitely use them to play this up:
I have also been dying for something fringe: This one is a lot similar:
I tried on these two last time. I liked both of them, but not enough to buy them:

From far away, this kind of reminded me of something Rodarte would do.. But a closer look and turns out its just striped linen, not knit...

Also, I can't help but post some of the most OBVIOUS knockoffs ever:

Miu Miu-
Marni-
And seriously, I could not stop laughing when I saw these...I think its also funny, because to people who don't have "fashion minds" the Chloe heels are a little strange so to abercrombie wearing girls who stumble into forever, well, I really wish I knew what they were thinking
(i promise, I wont come back with these! i dont have a problem with knock-offs, but these just...wow... i think I would feel like I was betraying Chloe or something...)


Ah..two more months of Forever and H&M days...then its all vintage from there!

oh one last thing: I really want to try a Karla's Closet tomorrow, and try on some men's clothes. To get into the Vatican in Italy, I need to wear something past the knees, so I want to get a pair of men's pants and roll them up!

Ok expect some pictures tomorrow!

I laughed when I read what your wrote about those Chloe knock offs. I was at F21 today and saw some A&F girls just totally confused. I want the black version.
