It was quite wise and stylish of Forever 21 to combine the rose trend with one of the hottest colors of the season, mustard, in these Rose Cut Stud Earrings, for a mere $3.80. If you want to get all matchy-matchy on us, don’t miss the Rosebud Ring for $2.80.

handbagOnce again, leave it to Forever 21 to make designer style accessible to the masses! It was love at first site with this vibrant red/magenta Chroma Hobo Handbag for $19.80. It’s a pretty good “interpretation” of the Prada version, which naturally contains a tiny triangular logo and costs a lot more. The leather strips and colors definitely evoke memories of handbags in the late eighties, but done in a fresh, new silhouette. If you’re not sure if your wardrobe’s color palette works with this one, there’s always the black and cream version to tone things down a bit.

I can personally vouch for the fabulousness of Forever 21 jeans — I’ve gotten many compliments on my $13 jeans from the retailer, and have recently told two other people that I liked their jeans, only to discover that they had on Forever 21 jeans too! I really think these Zip Ankle Skinny Jeans, ($12.50) will look right at home with a pair of vintagey booties and long tunic top. Choose from dark denim or indigo. Add $5.95 for s&h.
