Pleasant Surprise by Shannon

Coat: Banana Republic (old)
Blouse: Forever 21
Pants: J.Crew 
Shoes: J.Crew
Gloves: Anthropologie

I love when I get a pleasant surprise from a store. I got that from Forever 21 the other day. I have to say, I almost gave up on Forever 21. I'm not even close to 21 years-old anymore and everything always looks so young. Last week I found armfuls of clothing I wanted. This blouse is one of the treasures I found. I love the green. I had fun pairing it with my Anthropologie gloves and J.Crew shoes. My advice to you is never disregard any store because it might surprise you!

  1. Cute top! I feel like F21 goes in cycles, sometimes the store is full of amazing deals and other times it just gives me a headache :)

  2. I'd have to agree with you about Forever 21. It's hit or miss and it's disposable clothing for the most part. BUT once in awhile I find great items with prices you just can't beat. Cute outfit!

  3. I completely agree with you about F21! The store is so overwhelming and it's always hit or miss. But when I find one great piece I tend to walk away with a haul of great deals.

  5. Those shoes are HOT!
    And I feel the same about Forever 21... I mostly try to stay away because of their cheap quality.. I need to save my monies on things that'll last!

  6. Cute sweater. Stripes are totally in right now. Yes, I often get surprised at Forever 21. I never intend to shop there but always end up in that store somehow.

  7. When I go into F21 I am always feeling like I am going to get carded and sent out because I am too old to shop there....LOL! I buy ONLY super trendy stuff that will be out of style in 3 months. :) I spend on stuff that are staples and will be worn for years.

  8. I am a green addict myself and far from 21 so I shop there only occasionally. So I think they should have a section named ocasionally 21- don't you?
    Love the gloves!

  9. That sweater is absolutely beautiful.  I love that the stripes in your sweater are picked up in the straps of those heels (which are fierce as all get-out, by the way).

  11. Love the shirt! And your shoes are very cute! I love shopping at Forever 21, however there are none in Montana (where I live) so I have to resort to online shopping, or once a year trips to Spokane WA.

  12. Great top!  It's so bold, the perfect complement to your edgy shoes.  A Forever 21 was just built near me, but I have yet to go (only because it's in a kind of hard-to-drive-to area).  But now I want to get on it!

    Forever 21 is hit or miss for me, but sometimes their stuff is SO good. I love your blouse - so fun & bright!
