I am all about investing in staple wardrobe pieces that will stand the test of time and still be fashionable when my first child goes off to college. But when it comes to trendy items, or pieces I know I won’t be a fan of five years from now, I opt for a thrifted piece or an under $10 item from Forever21.
This sleeveless top from previously stated fast fashion conglomerate, is the perfect example. The fabric leaves much to be desired, and I’m not betting on it lasting more than a couple washings. I do like that it is extremely light (perfect for these triple digit temps we are having!) and I’m a sucker for anything with French writing on it.
Will I be a fan of this top a year from now? Maybe not. Will it even hold its shape and quality that long? Definitely not.
But it was $5.99. I’m not too worried about it.
