between xmas and new year, i headed out to the bullring, with a friend, as she wanted to have a proper look around the new forever 21 store which opened recently - i had only had a little browse in there also, so we made that our first stop and must have spent the best part of two hrs in there! there are three levels, and a lot to look at, although quite a bit of repetition around the store, which i don't mind so much as they seem to group things together with other items you could wear together, so that's nice for outfit inspiration..sadly the website seems to be quite difficult to actually navigate; it took me three different pages of "info to fill in" before i was able to put an item onto a wishlist, which was a little frustrating, and then it crashed..but maybe that's just beginner's bad luck..
anyway, back to the actual shopping trip - i was very restrained, as can be seen from the purchases..the brown skirt was a forever 21 purchase; the only one from two baskets full of items to try on!
the shoes were in the schuh sale - i checked out the irregular choice sale, of course, but the only pairs i want via schuh are determined to stay at full price it seems..so the floral heels it was for £29!
the watering can brooch really appealed to me, and for £3.75 in miss selfridge i felt i couldn't go wrong!!
and slippers were the only thing on my 'list' of specific things i need..(that and a black cardigan, but the less said about that epic fail the better!)
and my shopping outfit: i was determined to wear my christmas hat, and sort of matched the rest of the outfit to it, which has all been seen before..dress: newlife, cardi: h&m, petticoat: primark..
