Spotted at the Beverly Center: this. It's from the latest Forever 21 "fast fashion" capsule collection. And it is seriously?we'll save our vitriolic adjectives and just tell you that if you ever need a skirt that's 33% gladiator, 33% schoolgirl and 33% garbage bag, you can find it at Forever 21. It's pieces like this that make you almost wish XXI would continue their not-very-Christian ethos of ripping off?er, borrowing from DVF, Anna Sui, Trovata, and hundreds of others designers who produce goods less antagonistic to the eyes.
