Forever 21 Frills

Last week I found two awesome tops at Forever 21. Unfortunately they aren't online so my pics will have to do, sorry! Excuse the cheesy photos. I generally don't do outfit posts because I live alone and have nobody to take my pictures.

I am a sucker for bows and ruffles so I was immediately drawn to these items. Plus it didn't hurt that I paid less than $40 for both blouses. Did I just say blouses? When did I turn 74?...Also purchased from F21, $5 flats! I have only worn them twice and currently have the biggest blister from them. Hopefully they'll soften up a bit.


Personally, a new outfit makes me want to go out. So that's just what I did last Friday! My great friend Elana of Good Girl Gone Shopping came over and we made it a night.

For dinner we grabbed some sushi. I got jalapeno tuna and a random, mediocre roll, and stole a few of Elana's baked mussels. It was my first time eating mussels and I am not sure if I like them. The slimy texture is a little freaky for me.


After our sushi, we headed to a few local bars. I have lived in my apartment for about a year and a half and never hang out in my neighborhood. It's stupid really. I live in a central LA/Hollywood location and there is so much to do around here - and many places are walking distance.

It's nice to go have a few drinks and walk home, not having to worry about driving home.

y'all look so fun and pretty and I LOVE your new tops! Seriously, this motivates me to head to a F21 and seek out some similarly cute tops. :) And you're right--"blouse" is totally a grandma word, haha! Too funny.

Those tops look expensive and they are both so sweet. Great choices. The ruffles and the bow made a huge impact. Have a great day! xoxo

I'm gonna head down your way one day and we gotta hit up Velvet Margarita and do a Monday Night Social. So Fun!

Cute tops! Flats in general guve me blisters, but some are worth it ;-)

LOVING your new buys! Fabulous clothes always make me want to go out and show them off, as well!!

Gah! How on earth do I not remember The Babysitter's Club board game? The Saved By the Bell board game I remember; but not the BSC!! :P

Good Girl Gone Shopping said...

Yup! It was a fab time, and had a great evening with ya. I didn't care for the mussels either. They are usually so much better! lol

shari @ little blue deer said...

You guys look too cute! Adore those bows! Great finds! XX!

Gracie said...

I'm a huugggee fan of ruffles and bows so I would have been drawn to those tops as well.

I hate getting blisters from flats. But it seems to happen a lot with the cheaper shoes :( Well with my anyway.

Preppy Pink Crocodile said...

Love the ruffles and the gold shoes. So cute!

Coco Coterie said...

Is that a black sweater or a coat from Forever 21. Either one, it's fab. We've got Forever 21 here and I'm off to it, if I can find this piece! Have a great day ~ xox Alexandra

I’m all about the ruffles and bows too. F21 really has great deals. The top with the tuxedo looking bow is absolutely adorable and I love it. I also like the flats and hope they get a little more comfortable for you.

The night out with your friend looks like fun and I haven’t had sushi in forever. I could go for some soon. Places in walking distance are the best. Unfortunately we don’t have many around here. They’re close, but not close enough to walk.

You look great in the last pic!

P.S. I miss you (as if I see you everyday…lol). I have been working like a crazy person and haven’t had much time for blogging. Hopefully things are less hectic for me soon.

Ha Ha... I'm dying laughing at your comment, "Did I just say blouses?" I'm a sucker for ruffles and bows too. Great finds. The sushi looks so good, my mouth is watering.
