One of my favorite stores to shop at is Forever 21 (or XXI) because of their uber-reasonable prices and cute, trendy clothing. In all honesty, I have to be very careful with the way I take care of my clothing from this store, and I have brought home items on more than one occasion that had a hole in them or that didn’t last – so we’re not talking the highest-end clothing here. However, for a fashionista on a budget, like me, it’s a great place to shop, because when my white cami bites the dust, I can easily afford to buy a new one at $2.50 a pop! Anyway, I spent a good 2 hours in the store today, sifting through the racks as usual to find gold. Yes, it’s a total treasure hunt, but worth it in the end. Check out some my purchases!
A total Francophile and former French teacher, I couldn’t pass up this adorable but simple Paris tee.
I’m always on the lookout for new cocktail dresses or summer dresses, and when I put this Satin Swept Pleat dress on, well, I just couldn’t bear to pass it up. It looked so sophisticated and dressy on, plus, at $19.50, it was a downright steal! And yes, I bought it in pink.
I couldn’t resist grabbing one of these classic white button-up shirts with a skinny belt to cinch the waist. A modern spin on a classic look, perfect to pair with my black skirt and heels for a meeting.
I also grabbed one of these gathered knit tunics – it will go great with a pair of jeans but I can also slip it on with a pair of dress pants for a meeting!
