I will be the first to say, I used to despise Forever 21. My friends and co-workers would rock the cutest items; I ask where it’s from and get the same answer every time, “Forever 21”. *Insert stale face*. Every time I would step foot inside the fast retailer, I would leave empty handed. It took a trip to the biggest (and most annoying) shop in Times Square for me to leave with a bag of goodies, particularly goodies I won’t regret. The bonus is that everything, including accessories, you see here was under $100. *brushes shoulders off*
I couldn’t resist the Alexander Wang-esque shades or the hand chain (I’ve been searching high and low for one that doesn’t cost a million dollars). And this speckled Robin’s Egg blue polish was a steal at only $2.80. So even if it turns out to be a goopy mess, I only spent 30 cents more than a one-way swipe on a metrocard*. I will also post a mini product review on said polish. Wish me luck.
Most pieces are available online but I also included items very similar to the ones I purchased.
What was your most recent budget haul? I’d like to hear from you.
