Forever21 Haul

Thursday, September 23, 2010

You know Forever21 could update their website more often and I would be a happy camper. I want to show you guys what I picked up yesterday from their plus sized Faith21 section (without doing the whole take pictures of everything myself thing) and it's just not cooperating with the plan. I can only find about 3 of the items I bought, grrrr, so I guess I'll have to give in and just do outfit pictures later - this should at least tide you over and give you an idea of what's out there!

I know that we are very far from it actually being cold enough to justify this, but I bought a coat. I do feel slightly vindicated by saying that it looks better on me then it does in this picture - but that's just the excuse I used with myself when I decided to buy it. It's not very thick, which makes it perfect for fall, and I LOVE the forest green color against my skin.

This is what I really went to F212 to try on. I saw this dress online and fell in hard core lust, despite the fact that cowl necks are very iffy for us who are bigger on top. The color was impossible to resist in person though and the fit was just not awkward enough to ensure that it was coming home with me.

Let me start off by saying that this skirt is cuter in person. When I'm wearing it it doesn't scream 'slightly off' like it does with in this stock photo (the roomie has confirmed this so I know I'm not going crazy). It's very light weight fabric though, and a little stretchy, so when it gets colder I'll definitely be rocking it with tights.

Bonus SHOULD I TRY IT Round!
Sequin Mesh Tunic

I saw this shirt on the hanger on F21 and was torn. I like the shiny/glitter look but what you can't tell here is that it's COMPLETELY sheer. The model is obviously wearing it with a tank underneath to achieve this look. Plus I don't on my body it's going to anything like tunic length and I'm kind of sensitive about where across my abdomen tops lay.

What do we think people? If I end back up at Potomac Mills or Pentagon City should I try this on?
