forever a good deal

Last night as I was standing in line at Old Navy waiting for a fitting room, I spied a girl wearing this jacket. Usually I am not very bashful about walking right up to people and asking them where they got such an adorable item of clothing, but last night I just wasn't up to the task. As soon I the girl with the adorable coat was escorted to her dressing room, I was mad at myself for not asking. I sort of became obsessed over this coat, but I figured, hey, it probably cost $300 at Anthropologie right?
The night continued on and I had almost forgotten about the jacket when out of the corner of my eye I spied something yellow and white, could it be? Yes! Right there in the window of Forever 21 was the sought after item! I squealed with excitement and bolted right into the store to hunt it down, dragging my sweet friend Jill right behind me. After combing every inch of the disorganized store, and asking about 5 sales people who all gave us varying answers, there was good news and bad news...
The bad news is, they were sold out of the jacket.
The good news is you can buy it online and it is only $34.80!
This is why I love Forever 21!
I am not crazy about the buttons, but isn't the yellow and white hounds tooth just adorable?

I LOVE Forever 21! I'm so sad because I bought the cutest shirt from their store and it had a snag on the back. So I took it back to the store, and of course they didn't have it in stock. So I got store credit thinking I could find it online and they don't make it anymore!!!!! I'm so sad!!

Anyway, I'm glad you found this cute jacket!!!! It definitely looks like your style.
