Little girl in big store

Fashion is what you're offered four times a year. Style is what you pick out of that's what you make of it once you've learned what you accept and ignored based on what best suits you. 
-Lauren Hutton

This quote sums up my sartorial resolution for what suits ME, and only what I absolutely love. No more it looks okay but I really love the color kind of pieces. Only ones I wish I could wear everyday without public mocking. I also need to focus on getting some key classic pieces...a killer button up white shirt, for one.

For Christmas I got a wonderful Forever 21 gift card (THANK YOU MOM&TRINA!) and I think we'll be hitting it up saturday. Since that store is a fashion jungle, I'm trying to think of pieces that I actually want to keep the focus. Some of those shirts really could come to life...hopefully they have safari wear. Besides that, my sweet Husband will be with me and I think two hours in one store might make him crazy. I'm pretty sure it'll make me crazy too.

Here are the goals-I could end up buying none! Who knows. But at least there is a game plan now. What do you think? Suggestions?


  1. 2, 4, & 7 seem to fit you very well. I think they would get some good use for sure. Pants are definitely not my specialty so your on your own there. Have fun spending your gift card!

  2. I love the earrings! They will look really beautiful once they're on!

  3. Hehe! I totally do this! LOVE the necklace! Yeah, so I can get "lost" in that store for somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 hours at a time. No kidding. LOVE F21, in fact, I don't think I could come up with an outfit that doesn't have at least 1 piece from there. However, it is like a fun house to men (you know, the things at the fair with mirrors?) Poor boyfriend went in ALONE to get something for me for Christmas. I told him just to shop online. But he gets brownie points for daring to enter.

  4. I AGREE. i think this year, i shall stand by this as well. i need so much more basics and just really good stuff instead of, it's okay stuff it'll do.

    awesome post. good luck to us this year!

  5. I love that you just want to buy what suits you. I am really trying to focus on that this year too! I tend to overbuy so many things just because everyone else is... I think you have 7 amazing picks!! Have fun shopping!
