Recent Acquisitions: Forever 21 Mini Haul

Forever 21 has such cute pieces recently!
I stocked up on some closet staples, for cheap! 

Below is the Asymmetrical Maxi dress. This  dress is a result of the collaboration that
Forever 21 did with hip designer Rory Beca.

I really wanted to keep this.  I loved it - but it was really big on me.  I was swimming in it. 
This dress is sized as a "S/P" but I really think it fits like a medium. 
Had it fit, this would have been a new favorite of mine.
The material was a bit heavy, even though it looks light, and it was well made.
Retailed for $27.80.  This is unfortunately, going back to the store.

This is the Tiered Ruffle Dress - the color is much brighter than it appears in this picture.
(Second photo below is a better representation of the color of this dress).
I like this - it was only $12.50!  The material is thin, and the dress is fairly short (yikes), but 
it will stay in my closet because it will be a very cute layering piece for spring and summer.
I'm planning on wearing it with turquoise thong sandals.  Runs true to size.

The best buy! It's the Essential Striped Top - it's white with bright pink stripes in a boatneck style with 
3/4 length sleeves.  It's adorable and can be styled so many ways.  I already wore it to work this week w/ a black pencil skirt and blazer (pictures below).  Retails for $8.80 and is of good quality cotton.
Old Navy version here for $19.94 
And another Old Navy version here for $10.
(what's up with these random prices?)

This picture is from my Facebook page.  Do you follow The Fashionable ESQ on Facebook?  Please do!
Can't get enough of this pretty sweater. 
 It's soft and has a black chiffon rose applique with silverish sequins
in the middle of the flower.
On the back the sweater has a black exposed 
zipper that comes down from the neck about 5 inches.
Great find at $17.80.  This looks just like the Ella Moss Kinga sweater from a 
couple of seasons ago.

Essential Double Knit Blazer (Sold out) retailed for $22.80.
A great color and cut.  Very soft but still has a professional appearance for casual work days.
I've worn this a lot this week! :) 

Rory Beca Embroidered drawstring top.  A pretty chiffon top with teal embroidery.
I plan on wearing this in the most simple way: jean cutoff shorts and bright sandals.
Runs true to size; the fit is a bit billowy with an adjustable drawstring bottom. 
Adorable.  <3 Retails for $19.80

Wearing: the Essential Double Knit Blazer (again) & the Black Halo Jackie O Belted Dress.
PS: Every girl needs a dress in this style.  Ultra flattering, on all of us.  
Even those of us who think this won't be flattering.  Try one on. Promise.

I also bought these mint skinnies which run way big (size down) and this basic taupe tank $3.80 which comes in a ton of colors (both of these pictures from
Update: Of course, mint skinnies are now sold out at F21. Alternatives here & here.
