Granted, I did pick out the dumpiest of the dumpy, but look at the rest of their dresses here, and let me know what your thoughts are. To give Forever 21 credit, I also took a gander at Forever 21 Twist and I am so so happy. Just look at this dress.
It's not exactly the new party aesthetic I'm hunting for, but it's something. Now there are some adorable satin-y offerings in lovely jewel tones, but that's dressier than I want. I'm a college student. To go to ye ole Saturday night party in a purple satin bubble dress might be a bit much. So something has sort of struck me. Does it have to be a dress? I mean, if there's any sort of pattern I've got, it's ignoring skirts and skinny jeans for parties. I will investigate this. More later :p
