forever21 shopping haul 5

I applaud my shopping skills. I placed yet another order at forever 21 using my giftcard a week after my previous one and it's $209.44 altogether. How is this gift card prize going to last me? Hopefully there won't be anything much to get during autumn and winter with all that crazy sweater weather. But i crush on cardigans and pretty sweaters so much, it's going to be hard. 

I used a 20% discount code with this purchase. F21 sent me an email one fine day telling me that they have been having technical issues and apologised for it, but I didn't know their website was malfunctioning. Everything seemed alright to me. Maybe they're just finding a reason to give a discount code and I'm not complaining. This saved me a lot. Plus, I used Ebates to get 4% cashback on my purchase. (Sign up and get $5 immediately!

Such graphics are quite in trend nowadays so although these are probably suitable only on mondays and maybe on sundays, I got it anyway because I just couldn't resist it. The material is really soft so it fits nicely. I'd wear it with denim shorts and plaid tied around the waist, and white sneakers to finish the look. 

NYC Knit Tee $12.80

This shirt is super soft as well and makes a very cute crop top. The waist is very flowy so I'd match it with some denim shorts or woven shorts and sneakers for a casual look. 

I'm not a big sunflower fan (more of a daisy girl), but this shirt had a nice sunflower print that was not too glaring and in-your-face. It is also made of the same soft material as the shirts above so it feels really nice to touch and wear. 

This top has got to be one of my favourites. I love the details of the top. It's a bit expensive but it's got a lace back and front, and crochet trimmings and pretty crochet details at the front! I'd pair it with a kimono or marled cardigan on top of this outfit here. It would be great for boho chic looks as well. It actually fits weird on though. The straps are quite long and the centrepiece is translucent so you can see right through. So you either wear a low cut bra or a white one.  

Well, got these to wear with my graphic tees around my waist or as an outerwear because I'm getting bored of my flannels in my cupboard. 

These shoes definitely fit true to size and are super comfortable! They fit a medium width foot and the soles look really good, like they would last a long time. For the price, I think these shoes are a must-buy! Moreover, white plimsolls are so in trend right now. I just ordered the black one as well. I hope they bring in more colours. 

This is such a pretty necklace. I'm loving anything with feathers and arrows right now. They are quite long though, but still good for a boho chic look. 

I was hoping that these shorts would fit me better since the sizing runs small for forever21, but they are still quite loose at the waist and hips. Guess I gotta wear a belt with it as well. The thigh openings are also big.. I haven't planned an outfit with these yet but they would look good with simple tops. 

Can't seem to resist these woven shorts although I haven't figured out how to style them yet. The rose prints are too cute! 

These are similar to the tribal print tulip shorts I bought in my previous haul. They'd go well with simple tops so that the attention would be directed to these super cute shorts. 

These round sunglasses are not as huge as the ones I bought before so I prefer to wear these. I think they look better on me hehe. 

These are quite expensive but the details and lace are so pretty!! It feels really good as well because it is fully lined. If you are looking for woven shorts, invest in these because they can match anything! Yup, save your money for these (and not the others). 

I got this skater skirt in dark grey but I just ordered the black one because it came back in stock. It is actually quite long in my opinion but it is a staple and reasonably priced. I wouldn't say it is made of quality material unlike the reviews on the website. It is just plain average cotton to me. There are better cotton skirts at f21 but for a higher price. If you are just going for the look, these are good. 

This kimono has got to be a favourite. I love how flowy it is and the fact that it is a maxi makes any outfit elegant and cool! It kinda reaches my ankles so I guess I'll be wearing it with boots or shoes with a bit of heel. 

So glad I got these as well because the lace trims are cute and goes with printed tops. I will be styling more of this soon!

Uhhh haven't tried this on yet, so I have nothing to say. 

I know it is summer, but my love for floral leggings will not end! 

Roses and lace are always a cute combo. I have no idea what else in my closet would match these shorts other than lace. I'm waiting on my new orders with basic spags in white and black that I could use to match with my woven shorts so these will have to do for now.

forever21 shopping haul 4

I finally received my forever 21 gift card prize from the 30th anniversary instagram challenge. I paid 24 bucks to ship it back to singapore though. The gift cards were split into 500, 500 and 200 dollars each and it also came with a cute little necklace. No idea why forever 21 likes to use huge ass boxes like this though. 

So the moment I got them, I immediately used up the 200 dollar gift card. I got 19 items for $199.98 altogether (after 10% discount). 

This is a cute tank top with an interesting back. It's got a little slit and overlap at the back, hence the 'tulip'. The graphic is nice too. 

As usual, I was hesitant about these shorts in case they were too big for me. I got them in XS and they are still a bit big. It rests slightly below my belly button but they can be worn higher if the waist band was smaller. Not a big fan of the cutting and shape of these shorts. 

I didn't know these were from the men's section till I got them. They totally look like raybans but they are less than $4! Since they are wayfarers, they are unisex and still the same size as the wayfarers from the women's section. Got these because basic is always good. 

No real reason as to why I got this. I don't even use cosmetics or carry along any. So far, what I've done with them is store my sunglasses in them because this bag is quite big. It feels cheaply made and printed though and definitely looks nicer in pictures. 

I've waited a long time for these sunglasses and although the lenses are not in my desired colour, I'm still very happy I finally got them. I've been wanting heart shaped sunglasses for the longest time. I know UO has them for 16 bucks but since I shop so much at f21, I figured I might as well buy from them. I am super happy with them. I wanted to collect all the heart shaped sunnies they had but I always missed them. These were super cute and I'm glad they look good on me as well. 

These tank tops are very basic but super pretty! I wanted them in white but they ran out of smalls by the time I got my gift card. They still have many other colours though! I got it in taupe and beige since they didn't have any more whites. The length is also perfect since it is not too cropped and not too long and the material of the tank tops are really soft and comfy as well. They'd go great with soft casual shorts! 

These shorts are super cute because of the tulip cutting! I bought them because they curve upwards at the thighs to show more sexy legs. 

I've always wanted this dress but 22.80 for it is just too expensive. Plus the material is so light and sheer! Even their backless dresses go for 15.80 only. I don't know why this one is priced so high. The prints are really cute though and I do love the cut and look of it so I took this chance to get this dress! I'd pair it with the peek-a-boo bralette like the model wore and wear some safety shorts underneath as well since the dress is sheer. 

This skirt had many good reviews and I can't believe I didn't see this skirt earlier while browsing the store so many times. It is quite an old design. The measurements also looked like they would fit me unlike their newer items. The material is silky and smooth, quite like a swim suit's material but I don't mind. I actually quite like it. I got it in white but the black one looks pretty as well. I might get that too. 

I took my chances with these shorts and I love them! They are a tiny bit big but they still fit me very well. The colour is pretty though and it's my first acid washed shorts. It came wrapped in a bundle (no idea why) and I was so happy when I saw that the shorts were small in size and not huge like the previous denim shorts that I got. These have a button fly which can be a hassle but I'm not complaining since I found a pair of cute denim cutoffs from f21. For the price, I think it is a must-buy!

Got this one because of the good reviews. I'm not a big fan of the prints but there aren't any nicer kimonos online at the moment. 

Because I am loving wayfarers. Impulse buy?

This skirt is a bit big for me, unfortunately. The material feels very thin and flimsy as well. It has a stretchable waist at the back but I can't get it up high waist as the sizing runs big. The prints also don't seem to look as pretty than in the picture. 

Can you believe this jacket is only 15 dollars?? The reviews were all so positive as well! I'm so glad that I looked through the jackets section for this! It's so worth it! I'm thinking they restocked this in Small only because that is the only size available. 

Yeah, I probably have a million graphic tees with 'love' in them or are about 'love'. So this is one more to the collection. 

Like how the model wore it in the first photo, this is cute for layering over a low cut tank top or slip dress! It would also be pretty for a translucent top like in my previous haul. This is not padded at all. 

I've been looking for a similar cardigan as this one after seeing one at debshops' sales section. Some how, I never could bring myself to check out my cart at debshops. So, I'm glad I found this and although it is quite pricey, I think it is cute and seriously comfy. It's got batwing sleeves and they are full length so I guess that's why it looks like a shawl. Also, it is quite light so it is a dream to wear.
