I’m terrible at money management. There is no arguing at that. I feel like each month there is some unexpected special occasion and expenses preventing me from my dreams. Dreams of being able to finally save some money. This time I’m blaming my failed attempt to save money on my poor will and big sales at Forever21.
One Saturday evening I didn’t feel like sitting at home so I went out not really knowing where I’m going. Sitting in a subway I was thinking about “what I feel like doing” kind of away and I just wanted to sit in a subway with my headphones on and just go. So I did. While I was approaching the final stop I decided to head out, check out one of the biggest shopping malls in Prague and head home. I was already there so why not.
Suddenly, I found myself in front of one of the 2 Forever21 branches. The well-placed sale signs were calling for me from afar. Not only did Forever21 had 30% off, just like they have on their website, but there was also an additional 1+1 sale. So yeah, buy one with 30% off and get the other one for free. How could I possibly resist?
Three hours went by very quickly and I found myself with plenty of new items. But that was still not enough. I had memorized their merchandise heart by heart, but I was wondering if the other branch had different goods. So my poor bank account had to suffer yet another shopping spree couple of days later, cuz what if they have other items still in stock. And they did. Funny how the same Forever21 store but other branches offered such a different variety of clothes.
I was on a roll and I’m gonna take you to my unpacking with me.
Here are some of my favorites from my Forever21 shopping haul:
I found these hot tight black dresses in plus-sized sections and start to believe in love at first sight. I have obviously wide hips and a big butt, something I used to be very insecure about. It’s hard work to learn to accept yourself and even harder to love yourself. Here is my thought story: Road to self-love is a mess but it’s worth it. As the global opinion on different bodies changes, or maybe it’s just my lack of fucks to give, I feel more and more comfortable shoving my curves out.
I used to fantasize about a dress like this and how I would wear them and blow everyone’s mind. This dresses and my shape gives me the confidence to do just that.
You can get these dresses HERE.
I got the other plus-sized dresses but in a much different style. Baggy red-ish t-shirt dress that’s just so comfortable and sporty.
The exact style can be found HERE.
I’m gonna show off several things at once. I’m incredibly pleased with my new knee ripped blue jeans I got from a plus-sized section as well. Big ass ladies got to admit that shopping for pants is very difficult. To find one that actually fits is a blessing and a relief. Forever21 plus size pants are just what we all need.
My one weakness is shopping for a shirt. I end up getting one too many, resulting in me owning more shirts I can ever wear off. But those three were a must.
I recently finished Stranger things season 3 and you can check out my many opinions HERE.
So when I saw this “Smarter girls” shirt made in stranger things style, I had to put it in my shopping cart right away. Funny enough this is size S. Yay reasonable sizing.
My obsession with turtlenecks and chockers resulted in purchasing my new khaki green chocker shirt made from the softest material ever.
The third one had to be a baseball-styled Bowie shirt.
Bowie in my ears, Bowie on my tits.
Another beautiful piece I got myself from Forever21 was this fancy black flower pattern dresses. Love how classy they look and how sophisticated they make me feel. Got so many compliments wearing them.
The variety of summer dresses on sale was stunning and it was so hard to choose just some.
Just check out this page HERE and you’ll see how hard it is.
You know that section of random stuff right next to the cash register right? Can you ever just walk past and not buy, or at least touch anything?
Well, I couldn’t and besides items shown here, I got some sandals, makeup tools, eyebrow scissors that looked just so easy but are actually much harder to work with. Almost cut off my eyebrows before I got the hang of it.
Still, worth it. It’s been a long time since I went on such a shopping spree and I’m very pleased with my new wardrobe treats. My wallet not so much.
Forever21 still has those major sales so check out their website or visit their stores to get yours.
