Party Ready Under $30

Sequin Love From Forever 21


Forever 21 a line top / Forever 21 top / Mini skirt / Forever 21 skirt


If you're in need of a holiday outfit - be it a company party or New Years Eve bash - there's one place that'll never let you down: Forever 21. Maybe it's just me, but I can always find something at the wonderfully affordable store. Yeah, it's not made of the best materials. And it'd definitely not designer. But let's be real. It gets the job done and you'll get compliments. Two wins in my book.

As you can see I have a slight sequin issue. I understand that the pretty little disc shapes borderline on tacky, but since they're in style for the moment, I'm going to take full advantage of the trend. Who's with me? I mean, and with all of these pieces currently on the F21 site for under $30, how can you go wrong?

For more serious sparkle, link up with Long Distance Loving for Friday's Fancies!


And don't forget to come back Monday to join Sami's Shenanigans (who I think owns that last sequin skirt!) and I for our weekly link up, Weekend Update! We love meet new bloggers so stop by and say hello. 

Unfortunately, to our surprise the colors pink and gold, along with glitter, are property of another blogger. We were sent the blog equivalent of a cease and desist. For the record we didn't copy anyone, by any means, and colors do not belong to anyone. But, instead of dealing with drama, because who wants to fight with bloggers (and frankly, who has time?!) we just decided to move along to a ANOTHER new button, designed yet again by the fabulous Aubrey of The Kinch Life Designs. So if you're linking up with us, here is the most recent Weekend Update button. Sorry for the inconvenience. See ya Monday, friends!

So cute! I feel the same way about F21. I love the black dress so much! I'm a fan of sequins too, but it hurts me. I feel like I'm always scraping my arms on my shirt. I'm so lame. Haha.

I think I might actually have a weekend worth blogging about on Monday. I love the new button!

Claire Kiefer said...

Are you freaking kidding me? Pink, gold, and glitter? Uhhhh . . . that is quite a popular color combo and I'm alarmed anyone would try to claim it as their own! Totally ridic, but I don't blame you for wanting to just avoid the drama.

I love sequins and that last skirt is adorable. I want it!

Brianna said...

GOSH LEEANN. Well I own leopard and black and pink so can you please CEASE AND DESIST?!
haha that has got to be the most ludicrous thing I have ever heard. The new button is adorable though so good for you girls for taking the high road and staying out of lame drama! some people...

I've been looking at some fun sequin tops, mostly at old navy, but I like these options too! Especially the skirts. I'll have to check them out (:

Message to the blogger who owns pink and glitter and sequins: Save the drama for your mama.

The new button is super cute still...oh if only my name were still on it.

That's 3 buttons in 3 weeks. Can't wait to see the new button next week. Juuuust kidding.

Sorry to hear about the drama..no one needs it. Love the new design button. Love the use of pink!! have a fab weekend!!

Allie @ Tales of a TwentySomething said...

I am so over people thinking they OWN the rights to something in blog land. They should seriously get over themselves and worry about more important things. Love the new button, but I totally OWN leopard...:)

Blue Dog Belle said...

Oh jeez. Well. Good for you, being above the drama. Love forever 21!

I love Forever 21 for fun pieces like these! Great picks!

Sami said...

I do own that last skirt and I lurve it! Yep, people think we copy them and we are not original but newsflash... pink, gold, and sequins have been around for alot longer than blogs. It's sad people have to be so mean! But onward and upward! Our new button is gorg and so are YOU!

Whitney @ I Wore Yoga Pants said...

Don't you love those blog cease and desist emails? Don't worry, you two aren't alone - I too have received such (except not at all classy lawyer verbiage) from the same person! Welcome to the club, girlfriend. :)

Brooke said...

Those sequins speak to me. Not saying anything, but I might have worn a sequin top to work today -

And love the new button, so sad to hear that you received a bloggers ceast and desist. Who has time to blog? Much less troll other bloggers for that kinda stuff.

Oh well, can't wait to link up on Monday!

Stephanie said...

Honestly, I loved the new weekend update button! This one is pretty too, but I just don't get why bloggers have to be so mean! :(

Chris said...

You can't have black in your button. I have black somewhere on my blog and it's mine. All mine. Muahahahahaha!

p.s. can't wait to see if a certain someone will say anything to you about button gate.

Neely said...

GOD FORBID TWO BLOGGERS USE THE SAME COLORS. The world will implode. Some people are straight up skankity bitches....yes I said that

smk053078 said...

Sweet new linkup button! Roarrr.

I wish I had some sparkle on my person today. My holiday party is tonight and I'm fresh out.

Annemarie @ Brunch at Saks said...

So pretty! I think I want just one of everything! Great picks!

Amy Powell said...

sorry you got a cease & desist, but I actually love the new button more... nice of you guys to just deal.

and oh my goodness all those sequins are gorgeous!

Aubrey Kinch said...

1. You're the sweetest.
2. I need even more sequins in my life because of this post now.

Great picks, I am in love with sequins too.
Sorry to hear about your blogger drama, I can't believe someone seriously thinks they own pink, gold and glitter! I know you can copyright colors but it has to be very specific (Tiffany blue, Kodak yellow) not just any random combination. I don't blame you for wanting to avoid the drama though.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

I visit your blog often never leave comments but always reading. I find it rather sad how much hate there is in this post & comments from your friends. After the newton shooting I thinks it's rather immature to write anything negative about anyone right now, despite how you may feel. I've lost respect for you & some of these commenters. You've lost a daily reader.

ty said...

In re: Brooke - I don't think there's any hate anywhere. Just a general desire to not have any drama. If that causes you to lose respect for a fellow blogger, perhaps you should eat a bit of your own advice and not spew negativity.

And for the record, people who go on and on about intellectual property should probably have a pretty good idea of what it is before they start throwing out legal terms. Just an idea.

I sparkleheart the new button :)

So many beeyootiful sparkly finds! I always turn to F21 for New Year's looks :) So sorry to hear about the silly blogger dramz, but the new button is adorable! xo
