this weekend has been pretty blah. i've opened blogger so many times to write, just to sit here with an empty post for a few minutes and x out. i guess i was feeling a bit uninspired and to be honest i still am a bit.
i ordered some liberty of london items from target last night at 4AM. i've been seeing good reviews on various blogs and twitter so i'm hoping that i love it. JPG did NOTHING for me. i'm totally in love with all of the beautiful floral prints from LOL. the county in nj that i live in has "blue laws" which mean you can't buy clothing/electronics on sundays - aka no target. i could go out of county but there's a lot of damage because of the awful 40-50mph winds and rain we had yesterday...so i'm trying to get to the store tomorrow to look at some stuff in person, as well as hunt down a particular bag i'm looking for as well as a wallet. i'll be sure to do a review once i see things in person.
most of you already know, but for those that don't - forever 21 is offering FREE SHIPPING with any order! use WEMISSYOU10 as the promo code. today is the last day to use it.
here's what i snagged from the free shipping offer - i made a few separate orders, but i did spend over $75 cominbed...which kind of defeats the purpose of the free shipping code since i'd get free shipping anyway, right? lol
grand elephant necklace
this was the item that i've had my eye on for a while now. i didn't purchase it because i didn't feel like paying shipping on one necklace. needless to say, i immediately took advantage of the free shipping for this super cute necklace! i love anything with elephants. i first fell in love with emily's necklace on cupcakes and cashmere and then was happy to find this alternative from dianna from the budget babe! i also bought this necklace after rai told me about it - so cute!
retro twist cardigan
this was another piece that i found on the budget babe (thanks dianna!). it was actually worn by one of the contestants on american idol. that show is sort of my guilty pleasure and i actually adored the cardigan, so i HAD to get it! i don't own anything like this cardigan, even with the seeming abundance of cardigans in my wardrobe already.
fab pencil knit skirt
i've been looking for the perfect black skirt for a while. i work in a conservative work environment and i can't wear anything too too short. this seems to fit the bill! and for under $6, how could i pass it up?
brushstroke sleeveless tunic
i couldn't make my mind up if i wanted this or not, but i kept going back to the page. i like the detailing and i think it's a unique piece. a bit expensive for f21, but it's silk. i hope it looks as pretty in person!
double banded headband
i've only recently become obsessed with headbands! i couldn't pass this cute headband up for only $1.50! i bought three colors and i also bought this and this in regards to headbands.
bejeweled woven tunic
i originally saw this on erika's blog and fell in love with it. i don't shop at f21 often and i never shop online because i hate paying for shipping (lol). i took advantage of the promo code to snag this! i think i'm going to get a ton of use out of it this spring/summer!
side handle leatherette tote
now, this isn't for me. i've been looking high and low for the perfect bag for my mom's birthday in april. she doesn't like to wear black bags in the summer, so i figure this shade of brown will be perfect for her!
bouquet ruffle dress
i didn't purchase this online but instead in store a few weeks ago. the print is gorgeous! i don't care for the slip underneath the dress, but without it the dress is a bit sheer/see-thru. i think i'll be cutting the slip out and paring it with something else. this is a great f21 find though.
i also made a purchase from anthropologie for the first time EVAHHH and i'm thrilled with my purchase. i'll post a separate entry this week about it!
DID YOU BUY ANYTHING THIS WEEKEND? DID YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE FREE SHIPPING AT FOREVER 21?
