Fourth of July

Happy Birthday, America!

Happy July 3, everyone! If you're anything like me, Fourth of July really came outta nowhere this year, right? Like, tomorrow is the day with all the BBQs and fireworks? I feel like I was just sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner. Anyway, whether or not you forgot tomorrow is a national holiday, you still have time to swag yourself out with the American flag. You can even do so from head to toe, if you're so inclined. We traveled high and low (on the interwebz) to find the most patriotic gear out there that is available in stores all across the country.

Let's get started—the big day is quickly approaching!

You can begin your flagfit (flag + outfit) on your head with this hat from Forever 21. It is currently on sale for $5, but the color is appropriately faded so it looks vintage and will appear like you've long been celebrating the U.S.A.

Throughout the past couple of weeks we've been talkin' about prom. We've shown you dresses for different price points and rompers and jumpsuits to consider instead of a dress. Sure, finding a prom dress for under $150 is cool, but you know what's cooler? A billion dresses for $150. JK, it's finding an entire prom look for $100. Yep, even though it sounds impossible, we've found three dress/shoe/bag combinations that not only work together, but are under 100 bones. TOTAL. While there are plenty of expensive dresses out there, you definitely can cop your entire look for less, if you want to. Check out our three fave combos below!

When it comes to prom, tulle is probably the fabric that first comes to mind. Like, LBR, your mind doesn't immediately go to cotton when the word prom is uttered. This dress ($22.80) reverses typical prom dress styles with a layer of tulle on the outside of the skirt. Throw on a leather jacket you already own and pair it with metallic silver shoes ($47.04) and a small clutch ($19.99) and you're good to go.

TOTAL: $86.83

Today, Forever 21 released their collaboration collection with the NBA. From loose layering tanks to teeny mesh shorts, cropped short-sleeved jerseys to easy T-shirt dresses, the range features sporty but still feminine pieces repping seven of the league's teams: the L.A. Lakers and Clippers, the New York Knicks, the Brooklyn Nets, the Boston Celtics, the Miami Heat, and the Chicago Bulls. Most of the items are free of player affiliations by way of names and numbers, but there are a few special cases.

IDK about you, but I generally like to know at least a little about what I'm wearing before I step out into the world repping it, so if you feel the same and need some schooling in the NBA history department, I'm here to help. Consider this your Forever 21 x NBA collection primer.

#91 CHICAGO BULLS

Thanks to Miley Cyrus, Mike Will Made It, and their "23" ode to Michael Jordan and his namesake shoes, '90s-era Chicago Bulls gear is cooler than ever (well, since the actual '90s, anyway). Naturally, that solidified their spot in this collab line, but instead of showcasing the team's current star, #1 Derrick Rose, a Bulls dress ($16) AND a bodysuit ($14) feature The Worm, #91 Dennis Rodman. Rodman is definitely one of the greats and certainly one of the most fashion-forward NBA players, maybe ever, so this is a good pick for the edgier/nostalgic NBA fan.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry loves her some headbands.

If there's one thing Katy Perry's good at (I know, there are actually a million things she's good at, just stay with me), it's taking style risks and completely OWNING whatever look she decides to try out. Her latest shocker came when she chopped off her hair a few weeks ago into a bob with blunt bangs. That's not where her retro lean stops, though. She's also been integrating cutesy, bow-laden headbands into her steez.

Food Friday

Don't go hungry at home.

If you live on the East Coast or in the Midwest, chances are today was a snow day, because the white powder decided to pour down on us all night. (If you live on the West Coast, #BYE.) For those of us who are at home and didn't stock up on provisions and are not really down to go out in -5 degree weather, our food options are limited to the things we have left over in cabinets, like cereal and soup. For this installation of Food Friday, we figured we'd pay homage to the foods that are keeping our hunger at bay until we decide to go out or get delivery. Check 'em out below—they may even help you remember a nonperishable you forgot you bought precisely for situations like this!

We'll be the first to admit that trying to make plans for New Year's Eve stresses us out: the 12-month anticipation, the unavoidable crowds, the ever-important, gotta-be-stunning outfit of the YEAR. OK, so maybe we're being a ~little~ dramatic, but with less than a week to prep your look after a month of holiday hustle and bustle, sometimes you just gotta reach into your closet and hope for the best. Of course, you also want to LOOK your best, so why not start with one of your tried-and-true basics? Instead of going full-on Toddlers & Tiaras, take what you know and give it a new life by adding a few easy-to-find pieces from your local mall. (And TBH, this is how WE plan to roll, so don't knock it till you try it.)

THE LBD

+ Dress: Must-Have Bodycon Dress ($6)
+ Kimono: Fringe Floral Jacquard Cardigan ($136)
+ Shoes: Report Zinny Velvet Heels ($69)
+ Necklace: Silk Road Falling Coin Necklace ($58)
+ Bag: Iconic Quilted Minaudière ($20)

The Little Black Dress: Chances are, you don't just have one, you have like, 100. It's the one wardrobe staple that every woman has been conditioned to own since the 1920s, when Coco Chanel made it "a sort of uniform for all women of taste." Give your little black dress a big night out on New Year's Eve with a Stevie Nicks-approved fringed kimono, velvet strappy pumps, a heavy metal statement necklace and a cross-body clutch for hands-free dancing.

Word to the wise: anyone who tells you that they already know exactly what they're packing for Thanksgiving break is a flat-out liar. Or, like, a really good planner and someone we could all stand to learn something from. Either way, packing for a four-day weekend can be harder than packing for a two-week trip—because if you're going away for a legit long-vacay, you at least have an excuse to stow away half of everything you own.

For a shorter stay-over (and one that revolves around eating, at that), it's way better to condense your clothes into a bag or two and be comfy—which translates into cutting back on shoes and purses. *GASP* I know, I know. The HORROR. Let's be honest though: you're praahbably not going to clomp around the kitchen in those strappy suede stilettos you just bought. And do you really need to bring a giant tote when you'll be parked on the couch in a food coma for most of the weekend anyway? That's what I thought. ~Tough Love~

So, in an effort to help guide you through your inevitable procrastination, we went ahead and put together an entire Thanksgiving wardrobe that's all ready to be crammed into a carry-on.

THE OUTFIT YOU WEAR FOR A CASUAL HANG

+ Shoes: DV By Dolce Vita Java Boot ($89.99)

Maybe you're meeting up with friends for lunch. Maybe you're headed to that one place in town where you ALWAYS run into EVERYBODY. Or maybe you just need an excuse to venture outside and change out of your PJs. No matter what you're doing during the day, being at home shouldn't be an excuse to look as lazy as you feel. Besides, no one has to know that you're actually wearing jeggings.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez: she's just like us! She dated Justin Bieber, is on a 56-date "Stars Dance" tour, hangs out with Donatella Versace, and oh, NBD, wears Forever 21 on the regular. The last one really is like us. The others are not (yet).

Selly is back in the U.S. on tour and, as usual, posting pics from her meet and greets on Instagram. Onstage, she's wearing the tour outfits she talked with us about (and helped design!), but offstage, she's really into cheap threads. Sels posted a pic with two young fans wherein she's wearing a striped, sheer shirt from Forever 21 (P.S. it's only $15.80)! She skipped the faux-leather bustier that Forever 21 paired with the shirt, opting instead for just a black bra. Seems like dressing in solids is making its way from stage to real life for Selena: black on black on black.

ZOMG, y'all. Maybe it's just a product of the East Coast's patented humid heat. Maybe I'm just a weather wuss. But MAN, is it just me or is this one of the hottest summers in a minute?? IDK about you, but for me, nothing puts a damper on a cute outfit (literally and figuratively) quite like excessive sweating. Thankfully, though, sweltering heat is a great excuse to partake in one of my all-time favorite foods: ICE CREAM. Which brings us to this week's Food Friday shopping exercise. We've rounded up the best ice cream-themed clothes, accessories, and beauty items pon de web and wrapped them up in this here little internet package for your Friday shopping enjoyment. Enjoy!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
