Tribal


Hi all!
If you've noticed I have been wearing some new duds from Forever 21 lately. My hubby gave me a surprise gift card for our anniversary. He always listens to the oohs and ahhs... This outfit reminds me of Tribal Native America. I have some native blood in me (Cherokee), but would never be able to reproduce their glory. So I added a vintage hat and a misplaced fuzzy scarf. The weird thing is I like cowboy hats, too? Odd...

As I was looking back through last year's outfits, I have changed from the girly look to a more eclectic mix of strangeness. I am feeling a vintage need coming on - I suppose that's the fun of style, changing things up now and then. Plus, since I am a larger size this year, F21 doesn't fit the way it used to. Why don't they just make and xl and get it over with? Oh well, the shoes still fit ;)
(Actually it all did except for the dresses) 
Beware! A Large isn't a large in F21 land...


"The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us."

I laughed when I read the Large in F21 isn't really large. I have looked at some of their things and think Oh my, that L looks like a S.
You look great in this look. Love the vest and your jewelry.

Wow...I love the tights with the jewelry...great look! The only thing I have purchased for myself in F21 are accessories! But, I have bought my daughter several outfits!

Crazy leggings, gilet and turquoise jewellery, what's not to love? Fabulous outfit. A F21's opened in Birmingham but I haven't been. It's over 2 years since I shopped retail! xxx

OMG where do I begin?
Love the tribal prints--all of them! Love those leggings.
Forever 21 has some good stuff this year--not so teeny-bopper. And decent material. They have a great dept. with tribal prints--sweaters!
My father claimed to be part cherokee too--idk tho. But I totally am down for the philosophy. Very zen.

Reva, those leggings are reminding me of Proenza Schouler's Fall 2011 collection and they look great on you! I also love that turquoise jewelry. As soon as I get my act together I am coming to you for a widget! I read about it on your site and am now going through pictures to select the best one. Have a great weekend! XO, Jill
