Forever 21: My First Purchases

Gooood morning!

Only 2 days left until the weekend so I will be cranking up the music to get me through the day ๐Ÿ˜‰

A few weeks ago I went to Birmingham for the first time and absolutely loved it.

I’d never been to the Bullring Shopping Centre and was absolutely blown away by how big it was and how many shops there were.

Including Selfridges (which was a lush surprise for me!) it has pretty much every shop you could ever hope to go in and I have already bribed M that we need to go for a serious shopping day ASAP!!

Whilst I was there a small (!) wander in Forever 21 meant that I picked up a few new items for my wardrobe and jewellery collection, as you do.

I must have tried on about 35 items and genuinely couldnt carry them all by the end!

They have such a wide variety of clothes in multiple colours and it left me wishing that it was sunny outside instead of pouring with rain. The bright pastels and neons that basically took over the store definitely lifted my mood a few notches and that was before I’d even found the accessories!

So here’s what I picked up, starting off with the beeeeautiful jewellery hence the hearts!

(I took these on my phone….sorry if they come out a bit awful!)

First up the bangles….I love gold and black and cream so these were winners for me.
There were loads available in different patterns and I would have picked them all up if I could have!
They were all so wearable and pretty but would go with anything….bracelets SOLD.

I am neither a big fan of earrings or rings. I’m probably the kind of person who will when engaged/married (when?/if?) will freak out at the thought of wearing the same rings all the time.
I find them uncomfortable and they get in the way, also I couldn’t decide on gold or white gold either!

However this ring has ‘me’ written all over it and I liked the thought of literally having ‘studded’ ears so snapped them at the perfect price of ยฃ3 each….earrings and ring SOLD.

Lastly were my primary finds in the accessory department and the whole reason for me buying an entire new set of jewellery.
The necklace is bold, statement like and pretty all at the same time. It’s enough bling to catch your eye but not enough to blind you, I’ve seen a few similar at varying lengths but this was the best so far. It was also only ยฃ7 so a lot cheaper than others I’d seen.
The bangle was also another I couldn’t leave alone and at this point was in a frenzy, of course it went straight into my basket! Necklace and bangle….SOLD.

I also picked up some tops as I couldn’t resist the prices.

These were all under ยฃ12, with the black and cream top only ยฃ7.25 not even in the sale!

They’re so wearable and the orange cardigan just seems to go with everything. It’s so soft and washes really well so I’m half tempted to order off their website.
We don’t have a Forever 21 in Cardiff or anywhere near (that I know of?) so it was great to finally go in and have a browse and I’d be a lot more likely to buy off their website now too!

I fell in love with so many items I can’t wait to make another trip there. They have the perfect summer clothes and even if we don’t get the weather there are still some luscious clothes to brighten up a rainy day.

What do you think of Forever 21?? Have you picked up some bargains there too?

I thought I’d died and gone to heaven in the accessories department!
