Forever21 is one of my favorite shops and I first discovered it when I went to Las Vegas for my friend’s 30th birthday 3 years ago (Oh my god! its been 3 years!). I must of been inside the shop for about an hour or so and it wasn’t even a big shop – poor Ben (was boyfriend and now fiance) was bored!
Every night before bed my guilty pleasure is to window shop online via my iPad. I just find it really relaxes me and put me in a good mood before bed and yes the credit card does always stay in my bag, which is where they belong most of the time. Last night I was browsing the Forever21 website. The nearest one to me is Westfield Stratford so I don’t often get to go in, their online shop is the best I can do 🙁 However, I did make an exciting discovery. Well I thought it was exciting anyway.
What so exciting? Well in one of the ranges called I Heart H-81 the model is wearing glasses and it seems that is the only range where glasses are featured. All the other ranges just feature sunglasses which is the standard for this time of the year.
I mean even tho they may not be actual optical glasses but they are still pretty awesome to see the stylist for the shoot thought of using glasses as part of the styling. These shots prove glasses can alter an outfit just like any other accessory can. The outfit above is pretty smart but without the glasses it may not be so smart. I know some optical wearers are really against the idea of people wearing glasses who don’t need them but I personally don’t feel it is a bad thing. This is because effectively these people that are willing to wear them help the fashion industry to become more open to the idea of glasses. Then glasses won’t seem so frumpy anymore 😉 That is my thought on the matter anyway and feel free to share with us your thoughts on this topic!
