Soo, I've been a little bad at Forever 21 lately. Actually, I've been filling up my cart for months and finally pulled the trigger on a few items when they were having their anniversary sale a while back. It was equal parts good and bad, I think....
First up, a couple of boring work shirts. I wear solid white and sometimes black at work... I just hate how boring it is.
I do like this Rosette Longline Top though. Just enough interest to keep it from being SOOOO boring.
I ordered a cute ruched-side top... but they accidentally sent this instead. Nice. Hmm. It's going back for sure.
I think I'm reeeally into these Curvy Fit Jeans... unfortunately, I think the ankles are doing something weird. Should I get them taken in at the ankles or something? Or maybe if I wash them they'll just shrink up and look better. Hm. I reeeally liked them when I was wearing them and had no clue the ankles got all bunchy. Wah.
On the upside, they aren't even THAT low rise, which is quite a feat for F21. Will be ordering another pair if I can figure out the ankle issues. Also, I sized down from my last order (even though I haven't lost a pound) and they actually look good. Muffin topping is minimal.
Now... the next 3 dresses are all sold out by now. This lace bodycon dress is SO not my thing... but there's something strangely hot about it. I was really sold because it's actually long enough - as opposed to most F21 dresses that are shirt-length.
This one is not really befitting of my lifestyle... but I just love black and white. Classic, classy, black and white. Unfortunately it's probably too tight in the hips. When am I going to learn I can't wear a structured shift dress?
And then there is this Love 21 wrap dress. I really wanted to like it... but it was kinda boxy, even though it was prettily lined and quite comfy. Maybe it's just too big??
Soo, confession. I bought something called Scuba Leggings. Not only did I live to tell about it... but I kinda liked it.
I need to know... can I wear shiny leggings??
The Sparkling Bow Hair Clips are rather amazing. And sparkly. I only wish they were in red.
These faux-emerald Faux Stone Teardrop Earrings are SO pretty and cute... I just need to find some hair accessories that work with them.
The Polka Dot Bow Hair Clips are not as cute as I wanted them to be.... but I think I can still make them cute with sparkly pink earrings.
And the Glittered Bow Hair Clips are just about the tiniest hair bows I've seen. Maybe my nieces will wear them?
I can't find these sparkly bow earrings anywhere on the website... but they are large and fabulous.
I ordered a Draped Chain Necklace but it arrived broken so I didn't take a picture.
So, most of the accessories are a win. The dresses are pretty fab but I'm just not seeing the opportunity to wear them, so they might have to go.
Right now, I'm loving the bottoms at F21. And I'm going to HAVE to wear shiny leggings just to prove I can. I feel bad about keeping them otherwise.
Thoughts? Can I wear shiny scuba leggings as pants? Cause we both know I'm going to try it.
Only 4 days till Black Friday. Barf.
