Fade to Black

Not much to say today, ladies. My brain is fried, so TGIF indeed. Hope you all have nice plans for the weekend, and go check out the pre-fall Anniversary Sale at Nordstroms!

Here's another piece from my recent Forever 21 purchase. I get sensory overload every time I attempt to enter a Forever 21 storefront, so I mostly shop there online - thank goodness they list their dress lengths, because I don't need my milkshake bringing all the boys to the yard, if you know what I mean (not that it would anyways, haha - yeah I'm fried).


It's really hard to capture the details of this dress correctly. I think it's really cool up-close.

And this last pic is for you gals who may be thinking I am starting to get too Suzy-Seriouson with my posing -
nope, the Boogie is definitely still in there.

Dress: Forever 21 woven lattice cutouts
Belt: Anthropologie Infinity
Shoes: Indigo by Clarks Edamame
Bracelets: J. Crew zebra enamel & studded abacus

  2. Haha you look great! I almost feel silly going into a F21 because I'll be surrounded by 16 year old girls trying on items way too short for them and telling each other that "the dress is...like...totally cute on yewwwww!"

  3. Oh, gosh. I am the same way about F21. They're ginormous - it's so overwhelming.

    Love the LBD! It's perfect black for summer.

    And LOVE the last pic!!! :D:D

  5. Very pretty dress!:D I like it with the belt.:D

    Oh my gosh, the last time I was at Forever21, I got a migraine! Everything was all over the place and the sales people were rude. Thank God for online shopping!

    Have a restful weekend, Lisa!:D

  7. I never would have guessed the dress is from F21! It's super cute. I never go into that store though, anytime I enter I feel like I'm about to go into a seizure or something because of the lights, music, and crowds (okay, totally sound like a paranoid old lady here).

  8. I guess living on an island has it's advantages when shopping at F21. LOL. Ours is NEVER crazy, jam packed, or messy. It's quite organized. Hope you have a fab weekend Lisa. Ooooooo and I think you should show your face more in your outfit posts. You're such a cutie. :)

    xx Love & Aloha

  10. Gorgeous! I love when you do fun photos :)

  11. You are hilarious! I love that last pic!

    Navigating the website of F21 is much more relaxing the store. I feel like I need to do two tours of it before I can good about going to the register. I went last night looking for your beautiful yellow dress and nada. I did end up buying a faux fur jacket for $10 though. Just what I need in 90+ degrees :)

  12. Haha love the last photo! I wish I was a few inches shorter and I'd totally be dress shopping at Forever 21. At 5'8" most of their stuff is indecent on me!

  13. Lisa- The details in this outfit are just great! Your bracelets, belt, and tobacco colored shoes add such dimension to your LBD.

  14. I am so in love with your dress!!! You look lovely in it. AND, it is very nice to see your pretty face!!! =)

    Hope you have had a fabulous weekend to get you geared up for the week!

  15. I'm completely feeling what you mean about forever 21. I love so much of their stuff, but when I put it on, it is just way to short for anyone over the age of 17. I was there the other day and I was noticing that they have an older line now called "Love 21" the skirt lengths are much better!

  16. Good to know I am not the only one who feels that way about the F21 stores and there sometimes questionable dress lengths!

    Thanks for stopping by and visiting, Becca, Lisa, Fallon, Couture & Crayons, and Leslie!

    Pamela - I just purchased two pairs of boots for winter - so we're not being questionable, we're just planning ahead.

    Sharon - I went into a F21 store in Dubai and must admit I found it highly organized and not crowded. But my eyes still got crossed at all the choices!

    Kathleen - Most of their stuff in indecent on me and I am far away from 5'8" - do 16yos nowadays really roll around in 30" long "dresses?"

  17. Cute last picture!! I hope you had fun shopping at the Nordy's sale I went a little overboard! Beautiful dress!

  18. LOL, that last picture is awesome!! And I love this dress!! I agree that it is fortunate that F21 actually lists their dress lengths. I took have had to weed out anything that's less than 34" (which is like 9/10s of their dresses, sigh). I also think your shoes are fantastic btw :)
