We all know trends come and go so sometimes, it's ok to mix things up with affordable (aka cheap) dressing. Forever 21's clothing collection under Twelve by Twelve has some amazingly stylish (aka not hoochie) outfits that can fit your 2008 budget (aka post-holiday 'i'm broke' syndrome). I love the Chiffon Couture Dress ($29) that's perfect for a nice dinner out on the town and lately I'm getting drawn into the grey and black hues of winter.
Here are more favorites from Twelve by Twelve:
Parisian Cropped Bubble Jacket ($39)
Bow Detail Tunic ($39)
Modern Weave Dress ($69)
Sequin Luxe Sweater ($52)
