Spotted In Gold


Forever 21 Blouse, Vintage Levi's, 67 Collection Booties (love these), Flower Clip from a Minnepolis Boutique (similar here) 

I saw a blouse almost identical to this one at Zara a couple of months ago. I thought it was gorgeous, but a little pricey. While digging (and I mean digging) through racks at Forever 21 I spotted this version that was less than half the price! That is an example of a time I love F21, but I have just as many frustrating trips too. I have a love, hate relationship with F21. Do you guys know the feeling? Don't you feel like it is a little overwhelming sometimes?

Lots of Love xoxo

  3. I'm the same way! They have so much stuff packed into a small area that it is overwhelming! I love this blouse though!

  4. I have this same top from Forever (only the black/gold version!). This outfit is totally adorable...but do you find your shirt sheds glitter a lot? I look like I've rolled in it by the time I take the shirt off–which is never a bad thing ;)

  14. Cute outfit! You look absolutely adorable!
    I am not a big fan of literally having to dive into racks full of clothes, but when you find something wonderful for a small price... It's worth the frustration, isn't it?

    Love,

  16. I always get overwhelmed when I walk into those HUGE, multi-story Forever 21 stores because I don't know where to start! But it's always a gamble, it seems like I always find something nice when I not particularly looking for anything but when I'm determined to find something, I leave empty-handed!!

    But finding a similar item to something more pricey is always a good feeling :)

  21. I'm all with you about F21, it's definitely a love/hate thing. I found a very similar blouse at Target yesterday but ended up putting it back because I'm trying to cut back - no fun!

  30. That top is so pretty, I love the polka dots and how you dressed it down with shorts and booties! Ahhh I totally know what you mean about forever21, there's just so much stuff in store and it's usually super messy. Which is why I usually buy things from there online since it's so much more organized :) Anyways, now following!
