A couple of days ago I was curled up on the sofa doing a bit of online window shopping when I found myself on the Forever 21 website. Forever 21 is not somewhere I have ever shopped before, I briefly walked into their London Store but found it very overwhelming and quickly left again without really browsing, and I have never really given their website the time of day. I think I have always felt “too fat” for Forever 21 but never the less I found myself browsing the sale section, and about an hour later, I had several things in my basket and was ready to check out.
Fast forward a couple more days and my order arrived. I have to admit the shipping was on point and my order arrived a lot faster than I had expected. I quickly rushed upstairs to try everything on
So lets take a look at what I bought
First up, these two Dual Strap Cami’s. The first thing I will admit is that I had no idea these were cropped when I ordered them. I’ll be honest, I didn’t read the description which states “slightly cropped”, but the picture it shows is styled in a way that the cami just looks tucked in so it didn’t occur to me that they would be cropped.
I wouldn’t wear these out just as is, I don’t have the confidence for that, but I think these would be perfect for layering under check shirts as I always find that my usual vests are a bit longer than my shirts and then it either looks weird or I have to tuck my vest in which I then find really annoying and uncomfortable. So these could actually turn out to be a very happy accident.
Next up, a simple V neck T-shirt. This is by far one of the sheerest t shirts I have come across, but for the sake of £3 I’m not sending it back. I will get use out of it, even if I have to layer it up, or just wear it around the house. Its super soft so its a shame its so sheer.
A blue denim jacket has been on my wish list for a while. I have a thick, fur lined black denim jacket that I get so much wear out of, but I wanted a lighter jacket (not fur lined) for the spring / summer that I could layer over dresses or t-shirts for the day time and with this one being 50% off I couldn’t turn it down.
Its slightly cropped, especially in comparison to my black one, but I fits me nicely and is super comfy. The distressed patches give it a more laid back feel which I really like.
Next up, a tweezer duo. In my mind these are something you can never have too many of. They grow legs and wander off almost as fast as bobby pins! These ones are a cute pale pink with glitter on and at £2 they don’t break the bank. So bonus points from me!
Last but not least, Eyelash curlers. I’d have my current ones for ages and they just aren’t as effective any more. These could be a disaster and if they are I will buy a different set but for £2 I figured they were worth trying. Who knows, they could turn out to be amazing.
So that’s everything from my first ever Forever 21 haul. I have to say I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of everything (except maybe the t-shirt, ’cause that is beyond see through) and providing I learn how to read the description I can definitely see myself shopping here again, I may even brave the London Store when I go back in the summer!
