My finds

I promised all of you that I would show you my finds from Forever 21 yesterday. I got a ton of comments about how much you love the accessories there, I had pick up a few for myself.
*
The first ring I found and fell in love with but they only had a size 6. I have even looked online but still only a size 6. If you find one in a size 7, 8 or 9 will you buy it for me? I will pay you back plus shipping. The ring was only $5 but it is so cute. It looks like something you would find in your Grandma's jewelry box or at a thrift store and never want to take off!
(Trust me this picture does it no justice, it is 100 times cuter in person.)

I did pick up another ring last minute at the cash register while I was checking out. It was also only $5 and it is super cute and sparkly. It once again is better in person, my stones are a little different colors as well.

Now on to my big item...

Love them or hate them they are all the rage this summer. I am excited to be able to wear them with my skirts and have the outfit look totally different just by switching up my shoes. These are the shoes I feel in love with last week and have truly been thinking about everyday since.
Tell me what you think of this trend.
I like it obviously so don't worry about hurting my feelings.

I like the gladiator sandals. I have a pair that are similar to yours but a lighter shade of brown leather and they don't go up as high. I don't know how to wear them or with what to wear them with!

I honestly have never been to the store! They just opened one a few months ago and I will have to go and see it!

I love the rings...not so sure if I would wear the sandles, but it's just because I am afraid of trends and run in the other direction! My husband has to help me shop...that's how bad I am! I'll have to see them with an outfit then I can give you my FULL review, but whatever it is YOU will look great I am sure :)

I'm scared of 'em! Haha. I'm a fashion scaredy cat. It took me years and years before I would wear capris.... such a chicken. ; )

I can't do the sandals - mostly because I did them the first time around (think 8th grade) so I feel like it's ok for me to pass on it. If you didn't do the trend the first time around, then for sure wear them, they are pretty fun.

Love the rings!

Kristen said...

The shoes remind me of a gladiator, but not in a good way. I'm thinking of blood and guts (and I'm sure lion/other person spit) being flung all over them and trying to keep your balance. I'm not personally a fan of the style as a whole, but if you like it that's all that matters!

(I'm not one for trends in general)

I love the first ring! I like gladiator sandals but I just don't know if they would look good with my feet. I will have to try some on sometime. I have never been to a Forever 21! I have shopped their online store though. Have a great week!

I think that some trends are better for other people- I'm sure those sandals will be very cute on you, but I don't feel like they would flatter my legs (which I call linebacker legs)!! I know my limitations...haha!
The rings are precious!

The rings are adorable! I hope you find the first one - LOVE it. I am not into the gladiator sandals look :-/ though. To each their own, right?
