21 Forever?

I've written previous blogs about women of a certain age prancing around Forever21 like it's the cat's meow... well, consider my mother one of those women! The horror, the horror.

My mother called me while I was out of town asking about stores called "Urban Chic" and "21 Forever". I told her those stores didn't exist, that there was an Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 but they weren't for her demographic (she's 55). I further explained to her that she couldn't even get the names right (yet another reason she had no business going in there) and refused to give her directions to them. Well, the woman was determined because upon my arrival back to AZ she proceeded to show me what she got at "21 Forever" o_O.... some bracelets and this top - - the same damn top that I have!!! Let me say that it was definitely a conservative top, something I would've worn as a dress... but still, the world is coming to an end when MY mother likes Forever 21.

*le sigh*

She was thrilled with all the cheap jewelry and couldn't wait to go back and see what other tops they had.

Now I must say that my mom just lost like 30+ lbs so she's excited to fit into clothes she hasn't worn in a while. She said that "Urban Chic" (urban outfitters) wasn't her speed but she would be going back to Forever21. I can't say I'm thrilled about this... Hell, I feel torn that I still shop there... but it is what it is.

Too funny. I used to think after a certain age that I would have to stop going in Forever 21, but I do think they still classic like pieces and the jewels really reach across all ages.
I can't imagine though my mom wearing my same item of clothing. haha

This post is HILARIOUS!!!! "Urban Chic" and "21 Forever". I can't~!

And you not giving her the directions Bwahahahahaha!

I see how you feel because I would want to DIE if my mother wore the same clothes as me. However, I have to give your mom a GET IT Girl! for dropping 30 pounds! I can see why she wants to show off her accomplishment. You'll be okay *smile*

She's only bought 1 shirt and 3 bracelets from there but it's WAY too much for me. I mean, I'm cringing at the thought of her even walking into the store. I can say that the top she got is a tunic style and conservative... no hoe clothes for my mom! lol... She keeps it classy.

*DEAD* @ "no hoe clothes for my mom." Maybe the website would be a better option for her. Suggest that to her. I don't see too many "hoe" clothes online LOL!
