Up until now, I'd been ordering necklaces online - this was risky because they're final sale - and the website photos are not always accurate. I once ordered what I thought was a delicate leaf necklace - only to end up with a HUGE medallion type chain (think Mr T)! So I was VERY excited when Forever 21 opened up at a nearby mall (Sherway Gardens). Although there are less options in store than online, you can actually see what you're buying!
Here's what I got:
|Top: F21 Rhinestoned Chain Necklace Bottom: F21 Circle Bib Necklace|
The rhinestone necklace reminds me of the crystal ones from J.Crew. I adore the silver and mint bib necklace - it will look gorgeous both with winter greys and summer whites.

This post on PhiPhi's blog highlighted the versatility of this black & white pearl strand as a layering piece. And the messy pearl cluster was just SO HUGE and dramatic - as a pearl-lover I HAD to have it.
|F21 Quilted Bucket Bag in Taupe|
I also picked up this taupe crossbody bag while at the store (can you tell that I'm a little obsessed with taupe accessories?). I needed a cross-body bag for the weekend with enough room for my continental wallet. In the website photo it looks a little cheap & shiny - but it is really nice in person. Here's a picture to show how roomy it is:
I'm SO happy to have a Forever 21 store near me now! Here's what I'll be looking out for on my next visit:
|L: Rhinestoned Chunky Chain Necklace, R: Opaque Rhinestone Necklace|
|L: Pearlescent Bead & Spike Necklace; R: Spiked Chain Link Necklace in Rose Gold|
I'll leave you with my OOTD:
Sweater: Old Navy
Necklace: Ily Couture (similar for $38)
Shirt & Jeans: Garage
Have you had good luck shopping at Forever21? Don't you wish they'd improve their online photos?
