Forever 21 Collection

I stopped by Forever 21 the other day to give its newish better line Twelve by Twelve a once over. A couple of the items in the collection were actually pretty cute including this $69 faux leopard cropped swing jacket. But at close inspection, the button strings were frayed and it didn't instill much confidence that it could function beyond the world of disposable clothing. Personally, I thought the purpose of Forever was to buy trendy items that won't last more than season (both literally and stylistically) and while $70 isn't a lot of money, it's certainly more than I could see dropping there.

Would you spend $70 on a Forever 21 item - even if it was "collection?"
