My First Forever 21 Experience!Wednesday, 23 May 2012 11:48
At the weekend I took the long journey to Birmingham with my boyfriend, we'd never been before and I really wanted to go to the Bull Ring, as I heard it is amazing for shopping. I'm not going to lie though, the main reason I wanted to go is because I was dying to go to the Forever 21 store! There are only 3 in the UK and Birmingham is the closest one to me, but still so far away so I probably won't go again for years :(.
First impressions were great, the store was HUGE, with I think 3 floors (?) full of gorgeous and affordable stuff. I have scoured the website hundreds of times and already had an idea of what I wanted to look for. Although luck wasn't on my side on that day as they didn't have my size in almost all of the things I was planning to buy! I did find a few other things though though I wasn't too upset!
I didn't have much money to spend at all, being a poor student and all! So I had to choose wisely. The first thing I got was this basic top from the 'I Love H81' range:
It is a very basic cropped tee, I loved it on the shelf as soon as I saw it because I love Mint Green and I don't own very much in this colour at all. I think it'll look great with my Mint Green Barry M nail polish! It does come up quite short, as in above my belly button, but I wear it with a white camisole underneath and it looks great. There were loads of different colours, including pink and yellow if I remember rightly! and I think it was around £8- I have lost the tag so I am not sure of the exact cost. I can't find it online either, so I don't know if it is perhaps really new to their stores or if I am looking in the wrong place!
The next and final thing I bought was a beautiful polka dot dress, at an absolute bargain price of just £12! They had it in store in like a coral pink or the white one, but I thought the white one would be easier to dress up a bit with my black blazer, heels and some nice jewelry. It is a mini dress and it has a zip on the front as you can see. It has hidden support in the chesty area, so I am not sure yet whether I'd wear a bra with it or not. I love it though! You can find this dress on the Forever 21 website here.
I will definitely be buying from Forever 21 in the future, I was amazed at the range of stuff they do. Their jewelry section was particularly impressive and the prices are brilliant, really affordable for good quality items. There is something for everybody's taste, so I would really recommend getting to a store if you are lucky enough to live near one, or take a look at forever21.com!
