Fall Fashion Haul

I seem to have a habit of buying things and then forgetting to post about them for a month! Back in October when I had my reading break, I bought some clothes, shoes and accessories. I also bought some makeup and skincare, but I will save that for another post, since I will be doing a full review on those products.

So first I went shopping with my mom to Forever 21 (my favourite store). I will try to link what I can, but since things sell so quickly at Forever 21 I might not be able to find everything.

blue and white shirt

The first shirt I got was this navy and white stripped shirt. It fits loosely and has a shorter hemline but not quite cropped. I am surprised at how much I love this shirt. It’s not typically what I go for but I feel so polished when wearing this shirt. Price: $22.90

purple sweater

Next I got this crew neck, cropped lavender sweater. Now one of my favourite fashion Youtubers, Jen Im, came out with a clothing collection called Eggie. There is this beautiful purple fuzzy sweater that I would have purchased if I had the money, but I was able to find a similar one at Forever 21 but way cheaper. I think this lavender colours really stands out from all the dark fall colours, but paired with the right things can be really fun piece. Price: $22.90

turtleneck

I got another sweater because sweater are my weakness. This black turtleneck is quite different because the ends of the neck and the hem are frayed. Kind of tip toeing into the whole destroyed/hole-y look. The material is a little itchy around the neck but I’m not complaining since it wasn’t expensive. Price: $24.90

jeans

Excuse the blue tones of the photo, but next up is a pair of jeans from the Gap. I told my friend I needed a new pair and she took me to the Gap saying that they have the best jeans ever. So after trying on several pairs on jeans I decided to get their Mid Rise Curvy True Skinny ones. Luckily for me, when I went they were 40% off so I got them for $50 instead of $70.

shoes

Next I got two pairs of shoes. I got a pair of black ankle booties for Forever 21. A staple that I didn’t have but got at a reasonable price ($39.90). The second pair I got from DSW. They are the Mix No. 6 Alexcina Mule. I got the black faux leather ones. I was so happy to find such a nice fair for so cheap, most mules I was seeing online were double the price. These are very comfortable and look very stylish. Price: $29.99

earrings

Finally for accessories I got a belt and a pair of earrings. The earrings I got are from Forever 21 and are these fake diamond earring cuffs (Price: $7.90). Finally I got the belt from Forever 21 as well. I had been looking for a belt like this for some long and I am very happy to finally have one. Price: $12.90

And that is it for my fall fashion. Next time I will definitely try to post my haul sooner to the date of purchase so I can actually link the products I brought from Forever 21 for you guys!

Back to School Haul

Hey guys! So a couple weeks ago I went on a big back to school shopping haul! When I went to Forever 21, there weren’t many fall pieces out yet so I tried to get mostly transitional pieces. I also got some miscellaneous things from Chapters. The clothes are going to be hard to find, but I will link everything that I can find. I also got some makeup but I’m going to save that for another post otherwise this one will be really long.

First I got a grey cropped top that says “Made in the 90s”. I wore this during my school’s Orientation Week since my program’s theme was 90s. Next I got this floral off the shoulder top. I think it’s perfect for fall since it has longer sleeves and is a dark floral. It is made of a silky fabric. Next I got a ribbed halter top similar to this one, but in burgundy (my favourite colour). I think this top because it is slightly longer than some other halter tops that I own so my belly is covered.  Also it may look small in the picture but it stretches out because of the material. Great top for casual going out night. Next I got this boho vibes tank top with red floral at the top. I think this top will be cute with jeans and a jacket for fall. Finally top is a grey suede tank top. The cut is very simple but the suede fabric makes it different. I wore this top and ripped black jeans when I went to the Green Day concert with my brother. A little grungy but something different.

jeans

Next I got two pairs of jeans from Forever 21. Now I am currently in between regular size and plus size at Forever 21 for jeans. Sometimes I fit in a 31 and other times I fit better in 12. Anyways both of the jeans I got were from the plus sized section. The first pair are black distressed jeans that I absolutely love. They’re edgy but can balance nicely against a dainty top. Love them! The second pair I got are these distressed denim jeans. I got them in denim wash. I accidentally got a size that is slightly too big but I lost the receipt so I’m just going to buy a belt to wear these! I love the wash and amount of rips in them. Very comfy jeans.

Lastly from Forever 21 I got two work out tops. Now my school has a policy where you can’t wear tank tops to the gym, and it is hard to find a not-tank not-cropped work out shirt. Luckily I found two, one long-sleeve and one short-sleeve. The long-sleeve one is grey and very soft. I will probably just wear it more as athletic-leisure than to the gym. The other top is similar to this one but short-sleeve. The material is almost see through so I will probably pair it with a cute sports bra.

hat

I also got this cute hat! It was great during my school’s Welcome Week because it keeps my face covered from the sun but it’s also cute!

leggings

When I went to Aerie they had a really sale of all leggings for $35 so I picked up two pairs. They are in the same style just two different colours – True Black and Deep Plum. They are high waisted and have a pocket on the side. I have wore these leggings a few times and I already enjoy the quality of these.

chapters

Next I got a few cute things from Chapters. First I got a large marble pencil case because I needed a new one and marble is so trendy I love it! Also something nice about pencil cases from Chapters is that they come with pencils, an erasure and a pencil sharpener. Next I got a new notebook. I couldn’t resist when I saw this one. The cover is a soft fake leather and has the word “notebook” embossed in gold on top. It is a nice size and the pages are lined and OH I love it. Finally I got another candle (because you can never have too many candles!). It is Blond Tobac by the company Voluspa. It has notes of tobac, vanilla and sandlewood. It is a very neutral scent; not too feminine and not too masculine. My male housemates really like it!

And that is everything! I will be posting a makeup haul soon!
