I took advantage of Forever 21’s free shipping for orders of $40 and more last week and ordered from them for the first time in what appeared to be forever (probably years..). I first heard from The Owl’s Closet about a sample sale for F21’s Twelve by Twelve line and found some things that I thought might look cute. I am only reviewing the items that I plan to keep, everything else is going back.

This darling skirt photographs better than it appears in person. I just love the wings in the back. The XS fits perfectly, if a little snug. I have a little muffin top action going on but I am glad it’s not loose around the waist.

These shorts were big. I definitely got them in the wrong size. I am not sure what size translates into F21’s size 25, but I plan to get these altered around the waist.

I think my expectation for this top is a little high, I know it’s far-fetched to demand F21 quality to be anything other than mediocre but I couldn’t help myself. It looked truly beautiful in the pictures. I do like that it hooks up in the front instead of having zippers. I think it looks reminiscent of my A&F Mandy dress in pictures.

Also got some cheap hair accessories for kicks.
