Forever 21 in Jumpsuits

During an accessories trip to Forever 21 last week, when I was helping a colleague shop for an upcoming wedding event, I spotted this disco-era, Mary McFadden-esque jumpsuit and knew I had to come back and try it on.

Here are the bangles....and here is the jumpsuit. For those of you not familiar with designer Mary McFadden, she is associated with accordion pleats, goddess looks, and, allegedly, 11 ex-husbands.

Yeah, I like the concept but it didn't work so much for me. I then tried on what looked like a blue jumpsuit on the floor, that magically turned purple in the dressing room. I really dislike taking photos in F21 dressing rooms. The lighting is, *ahem*, crap! But their bangle selection was very cute. And I'm still wondering if I should have bought this jumpsuit...both are $24.80.
