Forever 21 Online Haul







All from Forever21.com

Although these arrived a few weeks ago, I wanted to show some of my favourite new items of clothing which I bought with a Christmas voucher from my boyfriend.
I've been a bit low on motivation throughout winter, so I counteract this by drowning myself in lashings of florals and garish neon colours and it somehow makes everything feel much better. I love that I live in the UK, it's one of the most incredible places for street style in my eyes (bar Japan, of course), but I just wanted some casual clothes with a bit of an American flare to them to get me through the Winter. I've been dreaming of LA and watching countless youtubers bask in the sunshine, and all the things I have bought summon these images in my mind. We're only just struggling to pull ourselves out of the glum burgundy hell hole of A/W12 on the High Street and contrary to popular opinion, I'm loving it, bring on the pastels!
Another thing I like about my experience buying on the website is the fact that I didn't have to deal with piss poor customer service. Last time I was in Forever21, I heard a member of staff call a customer a "fat cow" under her breath, the time before they messed up my refund and made me feel like it was MY fault and that I should leave without them giving me the correct change. It's a shame I love their clothes so much because I normally stop shopping somewhere when they give such rude and poor service (here's looking at you, HMV! Haven't bought anything in there for a year). We'll see if next time I'm in there, they might have changed their service?

  1. Amazing trousers! Last time I was in F21 the server 'forgot' to subtract my student discount and said 'oh well, you can get it next time'..it only takes a minute to refund! Definitely having a browse next time I'm up in London. --beckyalyssa.wordpress.com xx

  2. I always hear so many bad things about F21! I personally have never had a bad experience with any of the employees, but I've stopped shopping there recently because I've noticed the quality of the clothes I've bought has decreased. F21 always has great prices, but I can't take falling in love with a top or a dress, and then having it unravel or rip within a week. I do partake in their cheap accessories from time to time though!

    Love that peplum top, and the makeup set is adorable! I have the matching tweezers!

  6. Those make up brushes are so cute! I've fallen in love with their make up bags but the shipping to NZ is $40 :/ Not quite sure if I can justify it. Their customer service sounds shocking! xx

  11. Wow those trousers are incredible and will look so lovely with the turquoise peplum top. Awful to hear about their service, it really doesn't take that much effort to be pleasant. I'd definitely consider complaining, when I worked in retail any complaints involving customer service was take incredibly seriously. I hope your next visit is a better one :)xo
