Weekend Shopping: A Few Forever 21 Finds


Do stores just not want me to spend money or something? I went shopping today with Candice who (thank God) is back from Barcelona and I must say I didn't find much...but the shopping trip itself was fun!

Candice got a gorgeous Tory Burch clutch today and I would say that was the highlight of the shopping trip. I was pretty happy with a few Forever21 finds...but the rest of the stores seemed really lacking today.

Here's what I got:

These fabulous, sparkly bow flats from F21. They remind me of a lot of the J. Crew and Kate Spade flats that cost a lot more.


The next item I got is this pretty lace top. It looks kind of not that great on the hanger, but it is very cute on! It needs a white tank underneath though. I love the buttons on the front.

Lastly, I got this gorgeous black top. It looks like nothing special on the hanger but the sleeves are so awesome that it really creates a statement when worn (Candice bought this one too!)

That's all for today's shopping :) I'm happy with my purchases. I guess I'll have to wait a month or so for all of the great fall stuff to really start emerging in stores.

Oh and before I go, I have been using my "Banana Republic Wednesdays" coupon where you get 40% off of any one full-priced item on the next Wednesday of each week until the end of September. I might get my trench coat using this promo.

Last Wednesday I got this pretty black skirt from their Monogram collection. It has some draping at the front and is overall very flattering.


Hope you all have a lovely weekend!  I am going on a girl-date tonight with Candice :) We are still working on picking a dinner place. I LOVE going out for dinner with a great friend.

Did you buy anything this weekend? Share your purchases in the comments below :)

xoxo,

Veronika.

  3. Those are wonderful finds. I like the sheer black top the most. I agree-- although the deals are best right now, you can't really find the perfect Fall clothes until mid-Sept. Yesterday Ipicked out a dress and jacket from JC Penney, and a light sweater and 2 pairs of earrings from Forever 21. I'll be doing a haul post on my blog, Confessions of a Beauty Guru soon if you're interested. :)

  6. Cute flats! I bought a little TOO much today. I like to shop in spurts. I got two pairs of heels, one gold pumps and the other velvet black peep toes from a discount show warehouse and Marshalls. also got a super cute dress from Macys, pink on top and black on bottom. I also picked up an off white ruffle v neck tank at Marshalls. Last I got a few work out pieces at Target. love your blog:)

  14. I love flats, but I'm not a big fan of those; they don't look very flattering to me. Look forward to seeing the tops on and seeing how you style them!

  16. Are the flats comfortable!? I have been looking for a new pair of black flats and have never bought them from F21 before.

  19. anon- i haven't worn the flats other than trying them on. I will report back soon :)

    LT- my friend from work gave it to me, she got it last weekend when she shopped there. I think you had to buy stuff to get it?

  20. Great purchases Veronika - I really, really like those flats! Are they comfortable on? I've hesitated buying F21 shoes because I feel like they'd be "cheap" ie not comfy to walk around in! But those are adorable and I could see myself wearing them with a lot of things.

    I actually ended up finding some really cute jewelry at Target this weekend! A chunky beaded bracelet for $2.50 and a pretty gold layered chain necklace for $4.25! I thought both pieces would be great for fall. I love when I unexpectedly come across a good deal like that!

  21. Kinsey they felt comfy when I tried them on but I'll have to wear them before I give a final verdict :)

  25. Love the flats! I may drop by and grab a pair this weekend. I'm hoping to pick up a ruffle cardigan at Macy's that I've been eyeing. It's on sale so hopefully it will still be there Saturday!
