Separated at Birth?

A few weeks ago, Anthropologie presented me with this outfit, which I loved.  However, there was one item in particular that I fell hard for.

Of course, it was the most expensive part of the outfit.  This skirt is beautiful.  I love the lace and the fact that it is light-weight for summer and a fun skirt to twirl in.  And did I mention it as beautiful?  Was it versatile enough for me to pay full price?  Not really. 


Rosaline Lace Maxi  $168

And then yesterday happened.  I was shopping with a girlfriend at a new Forever 21 (that honestly, was the biggest I have ever been to), and I saw this waiting for me.  It might have even waved. 

Tiered Lace Skirt  $19.80

Let me first say that the picture DOES NOT do it justice.  The actual color is more of a neutral nude and the material doesn't look as cheap in person.  Two people asked me were I found it on the way to the fitting room.  And this version is also full of twirly goodness, and at a price point where it doesn't need to be something I will wear forever.  Although, I just might.

Don't you just love Forever 21? It's store for everybody. Men and Women and all sizes. Don't buy custom jewelry anywhere else. They have the best prices and it all seems to be under $10.00.

Yes, sometimes we can be surprised at Forever 21.
My top today is from them.

Hi, I'm Erin. I am living back on the east coast after 15 years out west. Currently readjusting to humidity and mosquitos. I love to take pictures and read fashion magazines.... and to talk about nothing in particular (ok, and my dogs).
