Hat- H&M, Shirt- Thrifted, Skirt- Forever 21

I swear, this hat has to be one of the most annoying things I own. It has a tendency to fly off my head at terrible times, like when I'm in a parking lot and a car is waiting for me to cross. Too bad I love it. 

Lately, I have been trying to stop shopping at Forever 21. Unfortunately for me and my lack of money to spend, that has been a lot harder than it should be. I mean I'm even wearing a skirt from there in this post.
There are many reasons not to support Forever 21. The main one would be that they support child labor. Forever 21 buys most of its cotton from Uzbekistan, were the government forces children to leave school and pick cotton. 
Another reason I do not support the company is because of the terrible customer service. I'm not even sure what the employees do there to be honest, because it seems like every time I go in there you can't find a single thing because nothing is in it's place. And when you ask someone working there to help you find something (who will probably act all pissed from you "bugging" them) they never know where anything is. 
Not only that, but in my opinion Forever 21 ruins a lot of trends. Their ability to present a trend in the most tacky, cheap, and horrendous way possible stuns me. For me, it is usually a good warning sign to stop wearing a trend when I see a poorly made bedazzled version of it hanging in Forever 21. 
But I think the worst thing about Forever 21 is how cheap their prices are. It is so tempting to go in there and spend $15 on a top, especially when you are unemployed like me. For a while now I've been telling myself that I need to stop shopping there, but that temptation keeps pulling me back in. Lately I've been doing pretty good. Besides the felt hat I just bought on sale...
But I swear. I'm really going to try to stop. 

If child labor is a really important issue to you, I encourage you to go to this website and sign a petition telling Forever 21 to stop supporting child labor. More information is on the website.
