What's in my shopping bag?

I though this would be a fun little post to do - not sure if you are like me but I often peruse the Internet in search for cute and affordable clothes. Forever21 is one of those sites I have a love/hate relationship with but I must admit that when I do buy from them, I end up being happy and satisfied with my purchase. Now, here's one of my online shopping tricks to make sure that what I do end up buying, I really do love. I fill my virtual shopping bag and save it. I step away from the site for about a week and if I remember and care enough to go back to it in a week, check the saved shopping bag and if I'm still into the clothes (or some of them, at least) I buy! It means they passed the test in my mind and that they are worthy.

So without further ado, here's my little shopping bag at Forever21 at the moment -



how cute would this be 1 size larger and worn off the shoulder? :)




I'm so adventurous when it comes to colour, aren't I? ha ha

  1. I do the same thing you do! The only bad thing with Forever XXI is that sometimes the sizes run out too soon :(.

    I really like the second top though, you have great taste :D

  2. I have those shorts! (and a matching top but who's counting...) they're actually adorable on and look really cute with a more casual sweater on top. they are a little itchy though so if you're sensitive I would hold off!

  6. I do this too. It's such a great way to shop and avoid buying things you don't really need. Also, if the item suddenly becomes out of stock in my size I (generally) move on and forget about it. I do hate websites that erase your basket after a day (Topshop is guilty of this). x

  7. I also love/hate forever 21. I feel like that store is a mess whenever I see a clean one I'm surprised. I've wanted a pair of sequined shorts forever. If you get them please let us know how you like them.

    1. haha it's perfectly fine, I loved the old one but it wasn't my photo of those shoes so I figured it was best to change it. I like ASOS too but they always charge obnoxious amounts for Customs :(

  13. I love them all, but the last piece you pictured really brings out the beauty of Pearl to me. The blossoms, the pearls, stunning without needing to be over the top.
