Forever 21 x Khalid #WeAreForever Celebration; #GirlsTrip Is The Movie Of The Year

July 18, 2017

Happy Monday! Today was a good day *Ice Cube voice*. After work, I quickly head over to Arclight Hollywood for a special advanced screening of #GirlsTrip. Huge thanks to Tracy and Chardae for the invite. First off- I was excited about this all day. It’s a comedy with a long list of superstars: Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, Larenz Tate, Kate Walsh, Mike Colter, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Queen Latifah. Just watch the trailer. This is a girl’s trip of a lifetime.

I’m not allowed to say anything about the movie because it comes out on July 21, but just know. I was cracking up the entire 2 hours. If you’re human, you will love this movie. It’s probably my favorite of 2017 thus far. Yeah yeah, I said that about Wonder Woman, but this was legit pure gold. Comedy never fails. Shout out to my babygirl Val being my date. We literally had the best time.

Next up was a special event titled #WEAREFOREVER with Forever 21 and Khalid. They had me at fashion and music. Huge thanks to Dartes for shooting me the invite. I would have never known about it. And of course- all my babes were in attendance. Always a vibe with them. The event took place in the Wilson Lot at Arts District.

Huge thanks to Zev for letting me know when Khalid was taking the stage. I made it just in the knick of time. I heard they were being hella extra with getting in, but luckily things died down once I pulled up. I hear Khalid on the stage and run my ass over to the very front. I was surprised to see him playing “Location” first, but every song after that was just as lit. Salute to one of the most talented artists in the game right now.

This wasn’t just a normal performance- it was acoustic. Fuck yeah. Him performing all the cuts off American Teen on his guitar was the perfecting ending to this Monday. He played “8Teen” and “Young Dumb & Broke” next. Summer vibes af.

This made my week lmao. Totally forgot he had this track with Calvin Harris. “Rollin” is gold. Calvin is a genius for this joint.

This #WEAREFOREVER campaign is super dope. In celebration of their favorite creative and inspiring young influencers, Forever 21 is doing a collab with each one of them. Khalid fits the bill perfectly. Homeboy is only 19 years old (kill me now). I think everyone goes through a Forever 21 phase at one point in their lives. They are definitely for the culture.

Saw Karen Civil and had to say hi. She was super sweet. I was definitely waiting for the photo opp and had to steal her flick. Peep the abs though lmao. Yeezus. Another amazing event with all the essentials: signature cocktails, photo opps, food trucks, ICE CREAM TRUCK that gave out candy, glitter station, live music and slaps, art, and fashion. I walked the premises and found two pop-up shops in the corner. Genius.

#khalid we love you. #forever21 we love you. 💎 #weareforever @ashleewith2es
