I typically shy away from the skater skirt silhouette because I find it to be cute and sweet, which are very wonderful traits when not pertaining to my wardrobe. That being said, you would think that a dress with a skater skirt and flowers on it would not be included amongst all my pencils skirts, slits, and minis. But there's black. And mesh. And strapless. And off-the-shoulder. Then topped off with a pair of exaggerated mary janes and a vampy lip...more than enough dark and twisty details to temper the sweetness.

Many people don't know that Forever 21 sometimes carries lux material when it comes to items, you can often find something silk, linenblend, or even suede. Currently they've got a ton of suede items getting you ready for fall.
