Outfit Pretty in Pink

 Forever 21 Coat + Vintage Fur Collar (get the look with this or this)

Forever 21 has always been my dirty little fashion secret – just because they have so much good, on trend clothing.  The thing is though, after a few wears the piece doesn’t always look so great.  Over the past year or so I’ve stopped shopping there so much in favor of purchasing with intention… adding higher quality, wear-forever pieces to my wardrobe vs. things that will get thrown out after a few months.  But sometimes I just can’t resist.  Over the holiday break, I snagged this coat (so obsessed) amongst other things.  I’ve been wearing it constantly and it shows no signs of letting up so far.  I paired it with my new-to-me collar, a striped tee, and of course – Tuesday’s DIY.

    LOVE this combo and the coat…to-die-for. Unfortunately, I find myself getting frustrated with Forever21. Maybe patience should be my 2013 goal/resolution ;)

    Ohhh, so pretty Grace! I love finding good snags like this at Forever, and the fur is a perfect accent. It makes it look so luxe and expensive!

    F21 is definitely hit or miss. Definitely not a store to be shopped when you’re in a hurry. Sometimes though, they will surprise you. The first pic is gorgeous. It looks like something shot for an ad.

    You look so, so, SO unbelievably gorgeous in these photos, Grace! OMG. And that coat looks amazing with the fur on it–great look!

    I don’t think I would have ever thought to put on a pale pink coat in winter- but it is darling! An awesome idea and it looks so good when paired with the fur!

    PS. Isn’t Forever 21 everyone’s favorite dirty little fashion secret? As I get further and further from 21 it just seems to get dirtier…

    I actually decided the same exact thing about f21 and since one isn’t super close to me, I haven’t been in forever. I am getting the itch though…

    Obsessed with your DIY cuff, Grace!! And, as always, I love how you perfectly combine high-end with affordable…totally buying those 9 West boots!!

    Looks incredible!

    What an amazing Forever 21 find! I hadn’t shopped there in months either for similar reasons, but when I went home over the holidays there were having a major sale and I couldn’t resist- I walked away with several really cute items. Your pink coat is so pretty and you look particularly stunning in the first picture!

    I love this look Grace! And you are so pretty. I think I need a fur collar like that. Forever 21 is my favorite. I get the low quality thing, but honestly I have had so many great finds from there that have lasted a really long time! That coat is adorable.

    that jacket is an amazing f21 find… so pretty!

    I feel the same way about Forever 21. It’s such a love/hate relationship. I’ve found pieces that have lasted years that were even subjected to the worst conditions and I’ve had pieces that died after a month. It’s hard not to be drawn to their stuff though. That’s a really beautiful coat and the color is lovely on you! Great find! xo
    Best, M.

    That coat is so feminine and pretty, and paired with that fur this outfit is the image of style and grace. Well done lady.

    I agree about the quality of F21 but sometimes there are things we just can’t pass up, and that coat is great! And I have to say, you have THE best hair.
