This week I decided to do a mall run, so obviously, I had to run through Forever 21– the bane of my wardrobe throughout all of high school. (Damn, I looked good!)

I found this tiered mini dress for less than $30!

thinking throw on a pair of opaque tights, Sam Edelman booties, your fabulous new leather jacket (that looks like Rick Owens but only costs $500!) and head out for drinks.

This dress escapes the usual F21 curse by having detail that wraps around the back. Remember: the tell tale sign of a cheap anything is when the details are only on the front and the back is left plain.
