When I was working in retail a few months back and my clothing department received a huge shipment of the so-called “eyelash” sweaters, my eyebrows shot up (so punny). I was convinced they would go straight to the clearance rack. But, much to my surprise, I watched woman after woman try them on. From light brown to baby pink to pastel blue- these strange sweaters flew out the door. I held off on purchasing one for myself because it seemed far too trendy to justify the $50 (which, when you receive an hourly wage, is about five hours of work and just not worth it!).
Well, I finally caved in to the trend today. Sticking to a style from Forever21 means that I can enjoy a fun piece without worrying if it will be dated next year. As a general rule I tend to stick to more timeless pieces- I view my clothing as an investment that will last me several years- but I’m happy I indulged this time.
