I went shopping the other week with my best friends for some new clothes now that school is (quickly) approaching. Not that I actually needed any new clothes, of course, but you know how that goes. 😉
We popped into Forever 21 to have a look around. I typically don’t purchase much from Forever 21, especially lately, because their quality just isn’t worth it for the price. Maybe it’s because I’m an H&M snob, but I can find pieces at the Swedish fast-fashion retailer at the same price point that last me literal years, where as Forever 21 items fall apart after a couple of wears.
Nonetheless, I tried on this dress and really loved it. My best friend ended up getting it, too, which happens a lot, but it’s fun to twin with her. 😉
This dress is only $14, and the quality is pretty nice, even by Forever 21 standards. I love the fit and flare style, but my favorite part of the dress are the bell-eqsue sleeves. So adorable!
I pared this dress with some strappy black flats from H&M that are from last year, but these are still all the rage so you can find something similar pretty much everywhere. I finished the look with some of my favorite Alex & Ani bracelets. I think this would be a great outfit for back to school. It’s fun, it’s comfortable, and it’s cute. Not to mention, it’s affordable.
Where’s your favorite place to shop?
