Friday Favourites: Forever 21

I'm one of those girls who browses online shops to kill time- even when she's skint. And in doing so I always end up with a wish list a mile long.
Today I've put together a post on some of the Forever 21 lines that have caught my eye.
 Beautiful fitted blazers with a pop of colour and a few prints thrown in for good measure. I really love the houndstooth cuffs on the black one.
I've been looking for the perfect fitted blazer for many years now, and I still haven't found it. I own a soft navy waterfall blazer, but I really need a fitted version for a neater silhouette.
These colourful dresses are really pretty and a decent length for the leg-shy lady like myself.

I can see myself wearing these sheer blouses over jeans or with skirts. The leopard print and navy polka dot shirts are particularly appealing. They're very 'me'.

It's always good to have a few tops for those dressed-down days. I tend to over-dress more than I under-dress, but even I have a casual day once in a while. I love these fruit prints, and the studded tee.

And I also love a statement bottom half (though usually more on other people than on myself). I love the leopard print skinnies- such a great colour for Autumn! The leggings are really cute and such an easy way to update an old or plain outfit. I think the colour block trousers are also really interesting. They're such a great shade of red, and I'd imagine the black strips would give the impression of slimmer legs.
I've known about Forever 21 for a couple of years now, but I still haven't made a purchase. I was going to buy a few things in the Times Square branch when I was on holiday in New York last Summer, but the queues were so long we ended up walking out. We intended to go back at a quieter hour before we left, but never got round to it. One of these days I'm going to have to take them for a test drive!
What do you think of Forever 21? Which piece is your favourite?



  1. i'm quite the fan of forever 21, its a bit like primark price wise but better quality and they really do design plus size clothes that i actually want to wear, it's youthful and doesn't make me feel old and the fit can be really good.

    1. I agree, it looks like an affordable brand with decent quality. A little like New Look, as far as I could see in NY.

  2. forever 21 has some lovely things! they always confuse me though because almost all of their items say 'hand wash' which is thoroughly impractical but i'd be scared of ruining them otherwise! by the way louise do you have twitter? PS i'm re-nominating you for a liebster award. i know you have about 4 already haha but it's the thought that counts! xxx

    1. Oh really? Hand washing is so impractical, and not what you want from inexpensive items. I do have a twitter, but I don't really use it anymore. I've been wondering whether to create a new one for this blog though.

      Thanks for nominating me! That's so nice of you :). I'll put a post together for it :) xx

    2. awesome new post once again :) yeah let me know if you do use it more, i'm @doodleheart, it's just i've been chatting to char on there more and it's nice to chat with other bloggers rather than just through comments all the time :) xxx

  3. nooooo!!! That spotty blazer is gorgeous!!! I just placed a wicked order and am waiting for it to arrive- so wish I had that blazer tho!!

    1. Oh no! I hate it when that happens. Hopefully you'll be able to buy it next time!


I love reading all your lovely comments, so don't be afraid to leave me a comment or a question below! I'll do my best to reply ASAP!
