Red carpet natural: striped maxi-dress, corset belt, open-toed booties, and floppy hat

If you’re a regular visitor to StyleIsMyPudding – and why wouldn’t you be, with fresh outfit ideas coming your way three times every week?! – then you’ll certainly know by now that I’m an unabashed fan of the fabulousness that is Forever 21!!

Sure, the store can get kind of crazy sometimes (those racks are jammed!) but you can’t beat the prices, or the virtually endless selection of both classic and “of-the-moment” pieces.  You might have to do some digging (literally!) but I’m convinced that there isn’t a fashionista alive that couldn’t find love at FXXI!!

Need further convincing??  Celebrity style mavens give their stamp of approval, too!!  Jennifer Lopez, Diane Kruger, and Charlize Theron (to name a few!) have all been spotted in somethin’ somethin’ from Forever 21.  Call me biased, but with just a quick change of accessories, I think this “little bit boho, little bit rock-and-roll” striped maxi-dress – which I wore here with open-toed booties, a wide leather belt, and a floppy hat – wouldn’t be out of place at a red carpet event!!
