Neutrals & Scalloped Floral Embroidered


This outfit was inspired by stylish and fabulous Pink Peonies. I browse the Forever21 website almost daily to see what they have in their new arrival section. If I see anything I like on the website I will try to track down the item at the store since they have a "return for credit" policy. I usually want to see how the item fits before I make a purchase. Sometimes I'm get lucky and I'm able to find the item in store but, more often than not, I don't have much luck. I've learned to save myself some of the headache of making a the trip to the mall by calling the store first and asking the SA if they have the item in store.  You want to provide the SA with the product code and they are usually very helpful. In cities where there are multiple Forever21 stores, the SA can tell you which stores have the items. 

I saw this Scalloped Floral Embroidered Skirt (currently sold out online) while browsing on the Forever21 website and knew that I just had to get the skirt. I headed to mall during my lunch break to see if I can find the skirt in store. (My husband is threatening to drive me to work so that I can't do this in on a daily basis lol. He says I should be eating lunch because he worries that I don't eat and always end up at the mall instead.) But I digress, luckily I was able find the skirt on my first trip to the mall.

  16. That skirt is just so you and your style. It matches a pretty blouse perfectly. I havent visited Forever21 in ages but it is calling my name. After last purchase severall months ago only led me to disappointment as how thin their fabric has become. However, there are gems to be foubd there but we all know what a headache to shop in a mega store wit racks and racks of clothing in Forever21 store.

    I promise to do reviews on Caudalie products soon, i just have to use them a bit longer :)

  17. I actually wanted to add this pretty scalloped number to my post about F21 clothes, but while writing the post, I could not recollect on whom did I see it! Now I know and have added a link in my post! Sorry for the delay, dear!
