about 5 months ago, I had returned some stuff to Forever21 & got a store credit of around 60 bux... I lost the gift card somehow & have forgotten about it... but I finally found it in September & so I decided to get some stuff....

so here are the cute pieces I got from Forever21 last month, I just never got the chance to post them....

{pictures courtesy of}

Water Color Roses Dress

Large Leatherette Clutch

Zipper Flap Clutch

Faux Diamond Headband

Folied Heart Earrings

Shiny Rhinestone Ring

Oversized Faceted Ring

ooohhh this dress!! need I say more??!?

I love how versatile this clutch could be... you can use it with the chain as a shoulder bag or hide the chain strap & use it as a regular [oversized] clutch...

& to compare the size with my iPhone...

I needed a brown, casual, oversized clutch so I fell inlove with this as soon as I saw it....

& to show the size..... 

look at how huge this thing is!!! it almost covered my entire hand... 

this thing is a little chunky as well but I like how it looks on my hands....  

don't you love the foily effect on the details of this set of earrings??

I wore it when were in Vegas (October 18th)... here are some pictures before we went to dinner at the Carnival Buffet at the Rio Hotel....

[if you can even see the earrings... LOL]
I used the brown zipper clutch that same night but I couldn't find any pictures of it... 

I bought these stuff coz I was supposed to go to my friend's bachelorette party in Vegas this weekend... but something came up, so I wouldn't be able to go.... ***pouts**

have you been to Forever21 lately??? what did you buy?? I would love to see your F21 haul....


  1. You gotta love 'forgotten' gift cards! specially from F21!! You got great stuff!
    That dress is so pretty!
    I love those rings as well!


  2. Oh I love that dress. So CHIC. Did you mention Rio Carnival Buffet? Girl, I love that place. Best buffet I've ever been to. I can't believe it even has PHO. I would die to go back...and this time I'll go with sweat pants. lol Great haul.
