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?
