Forever 21, plus a few.

Holy guacamole! Two posts within two days? What's going on?!
I'll tell you what's going on-- you need to get yourselves over to Forever21 right now. They have their Fall/Winter stuff out and so many of their pieces are absolutely phenomenal. I especially like their new fur vests, sweaters, and their plaid tops.
But, shhhhh. Because I didn't just buy any of those things yesterday or anything. ;)
It's not as if it's not obvious. But, I'll just put it right out there and say that I'm a huge F21 fan. I love that I can find such a great variety of things at prices that don't make my husband freak out when he looks at our credit card bill. (Love you, babe!) 
But, back to the point. People are often surprised that I find so many of my wardrobe pieces at Forever21. But, it's true-- I have everything from blazers to skinny jeans and scarves that I bought there. And I will tell you-- sometimes I feel a little weird going into the store dressed in my work outfits and my badge and definitely NOT feeling like I'm 'forever 21'. (Let's just say that I've gotten referred to as "ma'am" more than once.) But, I keep going back (or going online. Lol.) because I genuinely like a lot of their pieces and I feel like I can find and afford so many trendy or work-appropriate things there.  
I know that to some, the store can feel a little overwhelming at first because there are just so many options. But, I guess it doesn't bother me. I have a strange laser-like focus when it comes to shopping. It must be an awesome gene that I inherited from my mother. For us, shopping is an extreme sport with one goal in mind: to WIN. 
To win at buying all of the things (without breaking the bank!). 
And now that you know about my secret shopping superpowers, here are a couple of outfits from this past week. (See how many are Forever21 pieces?!)

  1. I'm a HUGE forever21 fan too - they have so many great items - and after a while, you get the feel for which materials will last through repeated wears & washes.

    As for the jewelry and the shoes - can't beat the cute styles!

  2. LOVE the sequin pencil skirt, I hopped over to F21 and bought it almost immediately after reading your blog, I can't wait to wear a skirt to work that has more than solid color going on! F21 has free shipping no minimum through tonight too! :-)

  3. I haven't shopped at F21 in years, but I keep hearing everyone say how great it is now so I guess I need to go back! I'm totally in love with that pencil skirt and the gingham outfits!
