Who Said I Needed a Prince to Save Me?

Petersen A -- Dress: Forever 21 / Earrings: Forever 21 / Headband: Saks Off Fifth / Ring: dbDesigns

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, there was a betch. A betch who didn't have a job, but had quite an admiration for clothes. This Jobless Betch not only longed for a job but for a Prince to save her. Yet one day, as she wandered through a whimsical woods she realized betches do not need to wait for a Prince to save her. So rather than wait for a Prince, she found herself very content in the idea that she was in a simple tribal dress and earrings from Forever 21 -- and if her Prince is to come one day it will not be to save her but rather for him to gloat upon the fact that she once was a Jobless Betch who had a blog [this is with the hope one day this betch will have a job].

The past year and a half has been filled with a variety of tribal designs; in that time they have filtered down from bigtime-name-brand department stores [Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue] into stores for the retail masses [Forever 21 and H&M]. What attracted me to this tribal-maxi was not only the fact that is was under $20 but the fact that it wasn't the typical loud tribal pattern I regularly see. The print on this dress is subtle enough that it is a "sustainable piece." It can be worn during the day with flats, at night it can be dressed up with heels, or can be worn at the beach absent of shoes. The other sustainable factor is its color -- grey is multi seasonal and a perfect color for the summer-fall transition. I'm sure you're wondering: "Well if it's so sustainable why wouldn't you buy a more expensive version of this dress?" Petersen A has to say, "Why would I!" The fact of the matter is tribal will go out of style, especially with galaxy prints gaining in popularity, but until that time I will not regret having bought this from Forever 21.

P.S. Can you believe the ducks that were following us?
