As a huge fan of Forever 21, I was super excited to receive the invite above. I think I’ve already proven through my blog and outfit posts that I’m forever a Forever 21 girl. I just love that you can get such trendy pieces at such affordable prices! And the brand name suits me for even though I’m in my 30s, I feel Forever 21 (as evidenced by my silly hello kitty purse in the picture below)! Ok so here are the pics from the Forever 21 Spring 2012 Fashion Presentation.
My yellow poof dress is from Forever 21 (had to wear something from the brand to the party now didn’t I?). I winterized the summer dress with my new Cynthia Steffe cardigan from Marshall’s, charcoal textured tights, and accessorized with my Hello Kitty purse and necklace from Off 5th. Also pictured to the far left is “Courtney Henley-Anderson, from blog “That Girl At The Party” and my dear friend Kate who is wearing her signature legging look – sexy!
The spring 2012 presentation was in this beautiful loft space with the most amazing view of NYC but I was so enthralled by the fashion preview that I couldn’t take my eyes off the clothes. They had cute little vignettes setup shown below.
I wanted the Tiffany blue pumps, tan tie blouse on the left mannequin and necklace from the front and center mannequin. Speaking of jewelry, my fellow blogging friends told me that we were instructed to take whatever jewelry we loved HOME. I couldn’t believe my ears and actually had to check twice and then ask another person to double-check I was understanding correctly. I could take any jewelry that I wanted? Really??
My eyes widened as I tried to control my excited, thumping heart and search the room for my favorite finds. I looked around to see whether others were doing the same and indeed they were! This gave me the final liberty to select my new finds.
I kind of felt like a clepto when I took the bow ring and the bracelet seen here but everyone around me kept re-assuring me that it was A-OK. What a fun fashion party! Who ever heard of one where you can go in and take what you like? And if that wasn’t enough, we got to enjoy some free drinks and delectable treats served by models clad in head-to-toe Forever 21. How cute are they?
