I went shopping with my friend yesterday and I am absolutely in love with forever 21. If I wasn't on a limited budget, I could possibly buy up that whole store! We were doing our back to school shopping together that day and even though I don't want to think about school, I do enjoy new clothes! We spent a total of 5 hours at the mall (would have been longer, but they closed at 6!!) and visted every store, but I only brought stuff from the food court and Forever 21!
This post is pretty much going to be pictures with descriptions of what I brought. I will be styling these clothes later, but I really want to show off what I got! ohh and the total for all these items was just a little bit under 50 dollars thanks to the BOGO they were having in the back!
~I am always between sizes S and M in most stores and for all my clothes here, I chose to go up to M. I know forever 21 runs big (and short) most of the time, but I like my clothes baggier I guess~
This shirt that I got that I didn't like that much at first, but my friend convinced me to get it. I am happy she did since I am in love with it now although I should have opted for a small, but ohh well! This shirt has pink bow-ties on top of a white background. The part that sold this outfit for my friend was the puffy sleeves since she loved the way it looked on me. I wasn't a fan of it at first, but I like it now since I am a bit bottom heavy and puffy shoulders balance me out nicely!
This is a sweater and it is made more for the fall/winter, but I got it since it was part of BOGO. It's a cream color and it is much warmer than it looks! I was sweating when I wore it in the dressing room. I got this in a medium and it is still a bit short on me, but if I had gone up a size, it would have been too wide. I love the design on this sweater. It's so simple yet chic!
Please excuse the bad photo of this shirt. I couldn't work the lighting here well. This is probably my favorite shirt that I picked up. It is made of a super light fabric and I love the contrasting colors. On top, it is a hot pink and the bottom is black. It fits loosely on me and there are cute little bottoms on the back! I know it looks off in my pictures, but this really is my favorite purchase!
This purple top was given to me by my friend actually. She was also utilizing the BOGO, but couldn't find something to pair with her dress. The store was closing in less than 10 minutes so she grabbed this and gave it to me. It's really nice, but it's humongous on me. The size is an M, but it is huge on me! I am thinking of giving this one to me mom =)
This top is really cute too! It is made of a chiffon fabric I think and it is really cool on the body so it is perfect for summer. The color is a light beige and it has a pattern of flowers. Near the top, there is a white lace design. The top is super sheer so I must wear a cami or tube top under it!
I got 2 shorts at the store too. The first one are blue shorts and they are adorable. I want to venture out and get colored denim, but I get scared of bright colors, so this is a nice color until I get braver.
These pair of shorts are gray and they have pockets on the side. I love how comfy these pair are. They are made of a felt like material and they remind me of jeggings but a shorts version. I can see myself wearing these a lot during the school year!
And here are all my clothes neatly folded! Hopefully they stay neat throughout the year! I still can't believe I got everything here for less than 50 dollars!
Do you shop at Forever 21? Love it or hate it?
If you are between sizes, do you go up or down?
