You Wouldn't Know

 Peplum Top: Forever 21 Geometric Skirt: Forever 21 Heels: #73 Target Sunnies: Target Clutch: R+J via TJ Maxx (similar) Bracelet: Nordstrom Rack (similar) Rings: Forever 21 Watch: Michael Kors

You wouldn't know this outfit was from Forever 21 unless I told you, right?!? I hadn't stepped into a Forever 21 in years since it seemed like everything I picked up was too short, too tight, too see-thru, etc. But a few weeks ago I went on a lil shopping trip with my friend (remember this?) and we stopped in because she had a gift card... and I was pleasantly surprised by what I found. In-store I got this top and this dress (in a mustard yellow color) from their Love 21 line. I saw this faux leather peplum top and I just knew I. had. to. have. it. Unfortunately they only had a medium left... and it was still too big. So I did what any shopaholic would do... immediately went home and ordered it online! And of course we don't want to waste any money on shipping so you add more to your cart... I loved this printed skirt (also from Love 21) and these rings which are meant to be midi but I like them on my pinky better :)

If you had also written off Forever 21 from your list of shopping destinations, you should go back and check it out. Their Love 21 line runs half a size to a full size bigger and their hemlines are longer so no worries of indecent exposure. Plus you can't beat the price!

Have you had any luck in Forever 21 recently? Send me links to what you bought & how you styled it!

PS - Can we all say a quick thank you to my BFF who took these amaze ball pictures?!? She needs to be my permanent photographer! :)

PPS - Classes start tomorrow, ahhh! Wish me luck with my 12 credits :(

  2. Great find! I don't have a Forever 21 close by the nearest is an hour away, but I still like getting some pieces online. I thought I was the only one who added to the cart so as not to pay for shipping. haha Hope you have a great week! I also start classes tomorrow from 7:45 am to 8:25 pm :/

  6. I JUST got back from F21 and found two fabulous hats for the Fall and winter that I can't wait to style. They were on clearance too, so only 4 and 5 dollars for both of them. F21 is really making a turnaround.

  7. Hi Kamola,

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I absolutely love this outfit on you - both the skirt and the peplum are amazing! I have a F21 gift card that I haven't used yet because I haven't been able to find anything to spend it on recently, but because of your post I'll have to go check it out again. =)

    I am a new follower on GFC and Bloglovin too!

  10. Oh I do this alllll the time! Especially with ones that you can return in-store and get a full refund... why not?!? No point wasting $10-$15 on shipping... that could be another shirt! Lol hope your classes went well today! You are there all day long, don't know how you do it!

  14. I just got a pleather peplum top at Century 21. No way I was paying hundreds for this trend. Love that you scored it for less too. Nice work. I'm going makeup-free this week for #MondayMingle

  17. omg! you are right! I wouldn't have guessed this outfit was from Forever 21!. I love that you said you immediately went to their website and also add more things on your cart, cause that's a thing I would do too :) haha..

    This top is lovely and great looking, paired with that beautiful skirt was great! You look stunning dear! Such great deals you got ! Also those sandals are a must! Love that clutch. It's so chic and the color is beautiful and great for this upcoming season.

    kisses!
