The long awaited Forever 21 clothing haul has arrived. After my trip to the states earlier this year, I showed you the jewellery haul as an attempt to ease you into the hauling masses. Next I showed you Zara, which most of you have seemed to think I did well with, or just haven’t said otherwise.
Now, it is my last official clothing haul. I love Forever 21 and in the past I have spent a bucketload every time I walk into one of their stores. As with all the previous hauls this year, I tried to stay calm and only buy exactly what I thought I would need. Here is what I came home with.
NOTE: I am still working out the best way to take haul photos. Does the mannequin work for you? Let me know!
I am definitely a skirt girl. I find with my constantly changing body shape, skirts are often the item I can get a little more wear out of even when I put on or drop a few inches. I would like to think I have no problem in the area of selecting skirts, but when I look back on photos of me wearing what I thought at the time fitted me, I realise it did not look so great. Hopefully I have done ok with these two.
Floral A-Line Skirt with Pockets
I like the almost-structured look of this skirt that the hard linen fabric creates. I thought it would work well as a skirt that goes over tops around my waste. It has deep pockets that are hidden quite well, and I love pockets on skirts and dresses when you can’t tell they are there. I also liked the large buttons down the front for a little detail.
I paid = US $12.50
Floral Mini Skirt
I love skirts with a bit of ‘swing’ or movement, and I actually had a skirt very similar to this one that I bought at Forever 21 last year, and it was my favourite for months. When I saw this one I thought it would be just as good as my previous version so I snapped it up without really trying it on. The skirt has an elastic waistband at the back, but flat at the front, and I like this because somedays I am fatter than others. It is double layered, cream polyester on the bottom and a floral chiffon over the top. I thought it was just a really pretty combo I could wear during spring summer.
I paid = US $10.50
I was unable to find these skirts on Forever 21 online, but there are lots of similar styles available!
Dresses are my favourite style of clothing.
