It’s been a solid five years since I last bought something at Forever 21, which makes sense because five years ago, I was 20 and it was appropriate for me to shop there. Well, “appropriate” by my standards as a 20-year-old.
I’ve walked into the store a couple of times in search of cheap clothes or accessories, but I always find myself suddenly feeling like I’m a 70-year-old woman at Abercrombie and Fitch, wondering why the music is so loud while I drown in a sea of crop tops and denim shorts that are smaller than any pair of underwear I own.
Now Forever 21 is collaborating with Taco Bell (yes, you read that correctly), and I don’t think I’ve ever been more concerned for the generation I’m in.
Anyone else think this looks like a jacket Taco Bell would make their employees wear?? I mean, seriously.
My mother would have keeled over if I tried to leave the house in one of these body suits. I will admit that the one in the middle kind of gives me some “Saved By The Bell” vibes, which I don’t completely hate.
Don’t worry, fellas. They’ve got a couple of goodies in store for you, too.
I don’t think I want to be a part of this generation anymore.
