Forever Frugal Friday: The Review

I received a Forever 21 GC from sister for my birthday back in February and just got around to spending it last week. I thought I would share my purchases and review the good, the bad, and the ugly...

First the Bad....

I purchased the Strapless Pleat Front Dress in blue after I saw my cute coworkers pics from Vegas in it. At under $15 I felt I couldn't go wrong. Well I ordered the size M and it was much too big for my upper area and just kept falling down. I proceeded to visit my local Forever and try on the same dress in a S but of course they were completely out...I am trying another tonight after work...

The Fab Colorblock Bubble Dress was anything but fab on me. It had a great fitting top, but the dress was much too short for this shorty...

I took a chance on these Metal Aviator Sunglasses. They are a bit big for my face, but the thing I dislike the most about them is rhinestones across the top. However, I am to blame as the description of the product clearly states rhinestones are present. Oh well, since they were an accessory they were final sale and have since become my walk the dog in the morning shades. All was not lost.

The Good.....

I have had my eye on this Woven 3Q Gingham Shirt for awhile and am happy to say that it has been a GREAT purchase. I have already worn it twice with leggings but am looking to sport it like the model above hopefully for concerts in the park this summer.

I am always looking for a good pair of gold earrings to jazz up a simple jean and tee look. These Filigree Medallion Duo Earrings are perfect blend of tarnished gold that look like you have owned them for years. I haven't actually worn them yet, but they seem like they may be a little on the heavier side, which makes me a little nervous.

All five of the purchases above totalled $49.50! STEAL!!!

Silver Lining...

Since I had to return the much too short tube dress and the much too big in the bust dress, I received a gift card with the returns back on it and spotted this adorable Peyton Flower Ring at the counter.

I have been looking for a cute cocktail ring for quite some time and this puppy fit the bill to a T! Gotta love those impulse buys right at the register!

My experiences ordering via Forever 21 was a pleasant one. Returning the dresses was a piece of cake and seriously 5 items for $49.50??? Now I have $22.50 left over and am planning to find spend it as soon as possible for a little something for Miami.

Woo-hoo!
