Forever 21 Sale Alert & Fitting Room Try-Ons

Forever 21 is having a Friends & Family sale in store and online with code F21FRIEND and today is the last day. I stopped ordering online from them since last December (the inconsistent sizing resulted in constant returns and I was racking up store credits that took me forever to spend) but I would still browse their new arrivals from time to time.

I finally gave in to temptation and ordered two items that I'd been lusting after and I couldn't be more pleased. See them on be below as well as my other sale picks. I also hope I come across this jacket and plush bathrobe in stores during one of my visits in stores since they're both sold out online.  However, I really hope they either restock or my size comes back in stock online since the in store experience is always a mad house. The popular tartan plaid scarf (also sold out online) may be worth a visit to the stores if you've been on the hunt for a similar scarf to the Zara version.

@Forever21 'draped attached-scarf cardigan'. Wearing #Love21 size XS. It's so soft and warm which is perfect on this cold, rainy day. 👯 @liketoknow.it www.liketk.it/AwyQ #liketkit #F21xME

Burberry Bowpark Rain Jacket, size 2; Forever 21 Draped Attached-Scarf Cadigan, size XS (Love 21)

#TGIF! @forever21 'Asymmetrically draped jacket' in size XS. The sleeves are a tad long but I plan on wear it mostly pushed up. Love the draping on this piece when zipped. I also decided to keep the #stuartweitzman Justmine boots I posted on @shopwhatjess

SHOP MY SALE PICKS:


Yesterday I finished my morning appointment early and perused the multiple sales in stores before the weekend crowds came en mass. Here are some quick fitting room try-ons:

I received an email code for J.Crew for 25% off in stores through Sunday 11/2 so I decided to swing by to see if they had any coats that were on my wishlist. Meanwhile I'm patiently waiting for my coveted bow coat to arrive in the mail.

J.Crew Chateau Parka, size 00 regular

@JCrew 'Chateau parka' in regular 00. It definitely runs very loose fitting but is a good coat for lots of warm layers. I am wearing my chunky F21 sweater from earlier today underneath. More try-ons coming soon on the blog. 💁 @like
Other views for reference (please see my clothing size reference here)

I tried on this vneck sweater at Banana Republic and loved how flattering they were in both colors so I took them home. They were on sale and 35% off my total since I'm a card holder so it made the price a little easier on the wallet and I really need sweaters.

Banana Republic Extra-Fine Wool Vee Pullover, size XSP

I was hoping to see the Kate Spade x GapKids collaboration pieces in stores but it either isn't in stores yet or the collection skipped my local Gap. In the meantime, I came across this cute, lightweight parka that would be perfect for layering since it's a very loose, boxy fit. I wish the waist had the option to cinch in like this jacket.

Gap Kids Solid Parka, size 12

Since I was in stores early, I spotted this sold out Lou & Grey Colorblock tee dress as reviewed by Jean in the petites section. It was an online return in SP which fit me decently but I think I would need XSP for an even more flattering fit. The material is thinner for the winter but it's a good fall dress and looks good with tall boots.

Note: I found that this shift dress fits just like their online stock image.
You can't tell here but it hits me mid-thigh which is too short for my taste.
