Forever yours...

Forever 21 is one such store which is always full of surprises. Some of the pieces are really high-end looking but without the high-end price tag. I have seen so many of my blogger friends wearing some really beautiful, expensive looking pieces and when I scroll down to check out the brand, I'm so pleasantly surprised to see that it is from Forever21.
Some very recent examples are Bessie at  Bravoe Runwayherehere, and  here  and Mary Ann at  The Dapper Bunhere and   With Each Passing Day-   here.
The other day, I spotted this top in a Forever21 store which looked very expensive, but, as always, it was just about $15! The material, the cut and the finishing- everything looked like it belonged to some high-end name brand.
I was especially drawn to the sweetheart neckline and the color which is neither red, nor pink, a very pretty mix between berry and wine- a rich jewel tone so appropriate for the Fall.

While we all crave for a Zara and a J.Crew every now and then, or even a Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, and a Manolo Blahnik every once in a while,  it is ultimately stores like Forever 21 and H&M, that keep our constant crave for fashion alive by providing us with the 'oh! so gorgeous' look at 'oh! so affordable' prices!
Forever 21 , if you keep providing us with such amazing stuff, I'll be forever yours!

Tell me, do you like shopping at stores like Forever 21?

  7. I have a hate love relationship with Forever 21. I love that Forever21 has cute affordable clothes but hate some of the quality of the clothes. The top you got was gem. I love how you styled it with the bright skirt.

  8. This top is beautiful and it goes great with our skirt ;-)
    I feel the same way about F21, but the trick is to dry clean instead of washing it at home even in the gentle cycle. This top will last you longer that way.


  9. You look absolutely gorgeous and its true.. Sometimes you just find something as elegant as this top at forever21.. One place to find unusual things!!


  10. I too have a love hate relationship with Forever 21. I tend to buy a ton of their accessories. I really love your outfit. I like the neon and nude.


  11. nice top...and the yellow skirt looks great with it..somehow whenever I go to forever 21 I end up buying either jewellery or a skirt from there..never bought a top from the store..:(

  12. These colors are wonderful on you, and that top is such a great find! I do like shopping at F21, although I get overwhelmed when I go in person - so I try to do all my F21 shopping online.

  13. Love that top! I love it when I find pieces that look like they could have come from Zara or a high end store!

  14. Gosh, you pull off brights so well! Mad props for making such bright colors look so classy.

  15. Thank you so much for the shout-out lady :) I love this outfit, and you are right. The top is def looking much more than $15. I plan to shop at f21 for as along as possible scoping out their best quality items. The pink and yellow look fantastic together, and I am loving that handbag.

  16. LOVE forever21! I LOVE this outfit - what a great skirt, but seriously, EVERYTHING is FAB!

  17. ahh!
    i NEED to get me this color combo!
    i love it
    you look stunning!

  18. Another color blocking perfection! Love it!

  19. I love that color combo! The purse is gorgeous! I think you should give it to me ;)

  20. You look so chic in this entire outfit! I love the color combo and all the cute details on you!

  21. Love the colors! Pure Inspiration.
    Like the fit of the skirt.

  22. Looking gorgeous as usual! I love the colour mix, it's so punchy and your bag is gorgeous! XxxX

  23. Oh i love your look *-*

    If you follow me, I said, I will follow you back!

  24. Amazing color blocking outfit, Juneli! Love the yellow with the berry, definitely looking very classy with a twist for chicness! I like to shop at F21 and I lot of my clothes are from there. I think if you take your time to look, you can really find some gems and if you can match them with nice accessories, you can definitely end up looking much more expensive than what you really paid! I think looking great in your outfits depends much more on your own sense of style and confidence than the price tags of your clothes!


  25. Great shirt! I love F21..especially their buy one get one free clearance sales!

  26. I love the colors, they're so happy! The bag is really cute too :)

  27. I'm more of a lurker, but visit your blog regularly! This must be one of faves! Love the outfit and the bold pops of color. You make wearing bold colors look so easy! :)

  28. Love this color combination! Your bag is gorgeous

  29. I love your blog! This post is awesome!

    1. Thanks a lot and sure, dear, I'd love to do so!

  30. Love the top. Forever 21 always has a bunch of great things and the prices don't hurt either. Fun color combination.

  31. WOW, can't believe that top is from Forever 21! You are so right, it looks so much more expensive. Stores like Forever 21 and H&M are what allow me to buy so many new items without breaking the bank. I would have a lot fewer clothes if I couldn't shop at those stores!

    xo Jenny

  32. I absolutely love shopping at stores like forever21! If it wasn't for the affordable stores, then I would have like nothing in my closet. I really like your top, it is sooo pretty and I never would have guessed that it was from the forever 21. The top has such a beautiful color and I love the button detail on it :)

  33. I agree, Juneli! F21 sometimes really does have some amazing things at fabulous prices! The blouse you found is a great example! Thanks so much for the shout-out, too! ;-)

  34. Love the bright colors together and the nude shoes are perfect!

  35. Oh, this is such a splendid outfit! The colors are abslutely delightful. That neon pencil skirt is drool-worthy. And that top is lovely and so unique!

    May the force be with you.

  36. The neckline really is special! F21 surprises me too, though I've only bought a necklace from them and love it!
