Mall Haul: Forever 21, Coach & Camo Pants

I was at the mall earlier this week with one of my besties for lunch and shopping – best combo ever! We went to Forever 21…I didn’t want to shop TOO much because I’m trying to streamline my closet – but we definitely found a lot of lovely things!

I loved this cream blouse (although it’s not very photogenic & needs to be ironed!) it’s soft and drapey – and perfectly complements colored & patterned denim. Speaking of which – I finally found some camo pants! They’re more grey than green – but they fit perfectly and were on sale for only $20 at Garage!

Forever 21 Studded Gladiator Sandals

My favorite purchase were these BEAUTIFUL studded heels. As you can tell from my outfits, comfort is key so I favor flats – but these heels are SO light & easy to wear! And all the gorgeous studding reminds me of the Valentino Rockstud Heels. They’re not perfect dupes – unlike these flats I spotted:

Valentino Rockstud Flats & Forever 21 Studded Flats

I’m not a fan of the pointy toe so I didn’t pick them up – but I definitely admired the gorgeous color & studding detail. And how identical are they to the Valentino flats?

Forever21 Rhinestoned Tulle Necklace

I think it’s physically impossible to leave Forever 21 without purchasing a statement necklace – so this cream & pink chain necklace came home with me this time!

Coach Waverly Cherry N/S Universal Case & Forever 21 Forever in Love Metallic Cosmetic Bag

My last Forever 21 purchase was a black & gold makeup bag – it’s quite roomy and I plan on using it to store my toiletries on overnight trips. The Coach wristlet was a recent gift from my mother – it’s sized for an iPhone with a few slots for credit cards – prefect if you’re just running out for a few errands. And how cute are all the hearts?

Here’s a quick OOTD from last weekend:

Sweater – Old Navy

Shirt – Gift from my Aunt

Necklace – J.Crew Factory

Jeans – Target

Bag – Longchamp Le Pliage Small

Flats – Old Navy

Have you tried Forever 21 shoes? Do you like the Valentino Rockstud heels?

    Oh my gosh the F21 flats are almost an identical dupe of the Valentinos! They'd be so cute with some flared jeans. 🙂

      They are SO close – I wish they'd do a "version" of the rockstud heels too – those are SOOO beautiful!

    I really need to get to a f21 soon! Fabulous finds! I love everything- that necklace is beautiful and the shoes are great dupes. I'm going to check out the the flats. Do they run true to size?

      There was SO much good stuff there – it was hard to narrow it down to a few choices! The flats felt pretty true to size – I'm a 7.5 and the 7s were still comfy enough on me – but I could wear the 8s too.

    The flats are adorable! I love pointy toes (although I never used to) so I'm a big fan! I also love the camo pants. I wish we had that Garage store here in the U.S. You look great Ella!

      Noelle – I think Garage have a US store (at least an online one) – let me try find you the link.You should try a pair out to see if you like them. Unlike a lot of other skinny jeans, their ones suck you in on top and aren't skin tight around the knees and calves.

      Thanks Lindy – I'm loving the F21 at our close by mall – it's much easier trying on the clothes in person rather than ordering online and hoping for the best LOL!
