Forever 21: Style Scrapbook - Vintage Romance

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and I hope that your week started out well. :)

Last week, I went to the mall with my friends (yup, besides watching Harry Potter, hitting the mall is the highlight of my summer, haha!). We looked around our favorite stores (Forever21 and H&M, of course!) and some new-ish stores that we don't normally go to (Cotton On -- separate post, maybe?).

I was able to take two photos while at Forever21... I got way too busy looking at all the clothes, shoes, and accessories, haha. ;)

I could stay there for hours! ;P

My best friend and I both want a fascinator (haha!), and we were trying to see if Forever21 had a fascinator-type hair clip or something (they didn't), but they did have fedoras!

Here's one I liked. At $9.80, I think it's a good buy. :)


You'd think I got my Forever21 fix for the week, right? Nope, I had to check out their website too! ;)

They are featuring a collection from Los Angeles Stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn. The collection is called Style Scrapbook - Vintage Romance. "Vintage Romance" sounds so pretty, right? They named their collection perfectly because the pieces are pretty, and definitely the type of clothes I would love to wear!


Here are some that I loooooved:

Crocheted Lace Dress ($27.80)


It looks so simple from the front, huh?


What I really liked about this is the back!

Applique Chiffon Dress ($22.80)


I love the applique! And you can style this dress in different ways.

Sleeveless Trench Coat ($27.80)


I love trench coats, but we rarely get the chance to wear them here in L.A. Sleeveless trench coat = genius!

Linen Blend Career Jacket ($29.90)


This linen jacket is light - it can be worn for Fall, Winter, and Spring.
For Fall, I'd wear it with skinny jeans, a cute top, and pumps. For Winter, layer it up! For Spring, I'd wear it the same way the model is wearing it, or perhaps with a floral dress? :)

Flower Print Shorts ($17.80)


Oh gosh, don't even get me started with those shorts. I saw a loooottt of shorts with cute prints at Forever21! Aaaaah, I wanted to buy them all!

A-Line Lace Skirt ($14.80)


I've also been on the lookout for lace shorts (I loved Emma Watson's shorts from her Lancome shoot)! But then, isn't this skirt pretty? I love that it's A-Line and that it's way above the knee so it won't make my legs look short. ;)

Braided Rope and Serpentine Necklace ($8.80)


At $8.80, this necklace is pretty cheap, don't you think?
At first look, I thought it would be about $10 or so. This necklace can dress up your outfit, and it also comes in a gold/black combo.

Pointed Leatherette Flats ($22.80)


These are versatile - you can wear them with shorts, skirts, or dresses. :)

*Sigh* That was nice -- shopping without spending a dime. ;)

Have you bought anything recently? Which of these pieces did you like the best?

P.S. My Perricone giveaway is open until Saturday, July 23rd! Enter now for a chance to win any one product of your choice. :D

  21. I can find a million things I like online, but when I visit the store I never find anything. Maybe because ours look like a bunch of Justin Bieber fans had a romp in it.

  23. I agree with Nikki, the F21 online shopping experience always tends to be better for me than actually going into the shop.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love F21! We have a huge store in West Edmonton Mall (the biggest mall in Canada) and sometimes it's so overwhelming to go in there because there is so much to look through! It's like 5 stores in one!

  36. Agreed. Forever 21 is like crack. You go in and it's so hard to leave! My fiance refuses to go in with me - he goes to the food court instead because he knows I'll be at least an hour looking at everything. lol Very cool post :)
