Do I have a problem?

Dress:Forever 21 (of course) | Shoes: Urban Outfitters | Belts: From Another Dress | Necklace: Target | Ring: Forever 21

Yes, it's another Forever 21 outfit. Blah...blah...blah.  I know, I know, I seriously need to find another place to shop!  Don't get me wrong, I adore other retail storefronts like the Limited, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, J.Crew, Old Navy, Gap, Zara and the list goes on.  As I have said before (here), Forever 21 and I have a relationship like no other. Maybe it's because I am a budget shopper and I can get a dress, like this one, for $20.00. Or quite possibly it's due to the fact that the Forever 21 in my hood has a plethora of styles...dressy, fun, professional and just straight up trendy.

After this post, I have come to realize that I am pigeon holing myself and seriously look like a straight up junkie. So, from here on out, I am going to try my best to bring to you a little more variety, but I can't make any promises.

And, when it comes to patterns with birds; I am a sucker every time. Remember this one?  Well, I have another one up my sleeve coming soon to a blog near you!

So do I have a problem? Or do I have a problem?  It's okay, you can be honest.  

Cheers to a $20 dress!



Today I am linking up with The Pleated Poppy.  Hop on over for some more fun!

No judgement here! I swear our F21 does not carry cute stuff so I live vicariously through your awesome purchases!! I am going to channel you next time I'm there and hopefully find some gems!!

Morgan said...

To be honest, I think we all have a slight addiction with F21. On trend pieces at low price points!? I see no problems here!

I need to jump on this Forever 21 bandwagon. I can confront my fears and DO IT! I just get so overwhelmed in there!!!

Katie @ My Darling Days said...

Howz about you just go ahead and ship me your entire closet when you're tired of it?? :) Also, you should make sure to wear that color blue, with that color orange, EVERYDAY. They look stunning on you!

Simply Sarah said...

Haha it's a good problem to have! They have amazing clothes for super cheap, at least you aren't addicted to a crazy expensive store! Love the pattern on your dress! The blue and orange are gorgeous together [and I'm not just saying that because it's NY mets colors ;) ] so pretty!!!!

Xo,
Angela

Karen said...

I LOVE your dress! I bought my first dress (and another skirt) from there a couple of weeks ago and I love them both---and love that they are so affordable!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

No you don't have a problem. We don't have one where I live so I always go nuts shopping there when I go out of town. When I go to Houston I am headed straight there!!!

I love that you find amazing finds there, I always have trouble picking out the good pieces. The more birds the better! Bring it on!

I don't think there's anything wrong with loving F21 because I feel the same way. Your dress is just so cute and I love the color and the birds, everything. You look fabulous!

SO Cute love! I'm a sucker for the blue orange combo this season!

SylviaLovesPink said...

I'm a budget shopper too, so you go girl! I love how you paired the blue and the orange together. I'm going to have to steal this color combo from you :) You look so lovely in your birdie dress!

Laura Burtis said...

First of all, you look ADORABLE (as always!) LOVE this dress! And I'm a sucker for the bird print trend too! In fact, you have inspired me and I'm thinking I need to add more to my wardrobe :) And you absolutely DO NOT have a problem! If you have a problem, that I have double the problem - I'm addicted to both F21 AND Target! HA!

Meghan @ More from Meg said...

I shop at Forever 21 online all the time!!!! I'm definitely not judging you! :) Love the blue and orange - and I might be ordering that dress today! :)

Raquel said...

Very cute outfit!!

Ashley K said...

I don't think you have a problem. When you have a problem they usually take a toll on you and your always looking so cute! ;) If you want to try another store H&M (if you have one near you) is a great place to branch out to they prices are a little bit higher but they always have tons of cute stuff.

Debra said...

Being a budget babe is always in style. And you find the BEST stuff @ F21. I wanna go shopping with you. Lol! Dress looks pretty on you. LOVE that blue!

Oh goodness, I am a Forever21 lover too! Probably more H&M, but Forever really does have some great pieces and of course, you can't beat the price! You look great girl! xx, Allie

i love bird pattersn! and this dress looks exactly like one tulle made for about 45 dollars. foreevr 21 offers a lot of variety - and they do kind of steal a lot of their designs (i had a bag that was originally a 300 dollar bag in the barneys co-op section, a month later, it showed up in yellow in cheaper fake leather at forever 21. i had the cheaper one, mind you!) and this is just one of those dresses that is well worth 20 dollars.

i dont have a forever 21 nearby anad havent bought anything from them in over a year now. i find the stuff falls apart too easily or is too short these days.

also - those heels! the BEST! i'm glad to see them on yet another blogger!

Ashley said...

Those SHOES!!!!!!!!! Love them.

Katie said...

I have been wanting something with birds on it forever!! I just saw this on much love illy's blog and LOVED it and now I love it more and want it!!

TheTinyHeart said...

That bird print dress is adorable! There's nothing wrong with shopping at F21...probably 85% of my wardrobe is from there!

Kate @ Green Fashionista said...

I love F21! I worked there in high school around when it first started getting popular and I've loved it ever since.

I completely agree with you, that of course I'd shop elsewhere more often, but when you're on a budget F21, Target, and Old Navy just call out to me for more of my regular shopping. Keep those fabulous dresses coming!

April said...

Ok first of all the colors in this outfit are amazing! And I adore that bird print pattern... I want it! And F21 is the best! Love their prices! You look so great!

Lindsay said...

LOVE the outfit! Finding an adorable dress (and many other outfits) for $20 and under is soooo NOT a problem. We should change Jay-Z's song to, "I got 99 problems, but Forever 21 ain't one" Ha!

TaraMixandMatch said...

LOVE the bird print, so, so cute!

Krystal Schlegel said...

Cute dress! Such a fun summer look!

yes, you do have a problem. and the first step is admitting it. ;) now i need you to help me find awesome things at f21 without having a panic attack.

Girls Love Fried Pickles said...

Hell yes you have a problem and I am sure there's an institute for pretty people like you and I think you probably should be committed for a 21 hour period but then I would have to go all Lifetime movie on someone and break you out so you could post more inspirations. Then we'd have to swear in pinky blood not to tell a soul.

Andrea {blonde ambitions} said...

I think it is a good problem to have! Bonus is for the price you get so much more! I love your bird dress and just realized I have a shirt I just love with birds all over it too, from Target! I seriously need to get myself to F21 quick and check things out :)

A Mode World said...

Great necklace. xA

MySweetCreations said...

Great colorful outfit, love the pops of red! I have been eyeing that necklace at Target the last few times I have been there, waiting for it to go on sale. :)

Chris said...

I don't blame you for shopping at Forever21... it's inexpensive! You're going to be in trouble when an H&M open up in your area. Did you check to see if you can order online, yet? That should be coming soon!

No judgment at ALL - I do the same thing with J. Crew and Madewell and I only wish I had more patience so I COULD be a Forever 21 junkie :) This dress is SO cute Shanna - love the pattern, and love the orange accessories!

haha! You don’t have a problem - you found something you love, i mean, i get it! I just went to forever yesterday to pick up dresses to wear to all of my weddings, and I spent $65 on THREE dresses! I’m on your side, i love that store!

Ashley said...

The dress is lovely - great find! I love Forever 21 and I wish I could wear more of their dresses. I'm 5'10" and most of them are just too short :( Makes me jealous of this cute one that you're wearing!

Sugarr2518 said...

Loving this dress and paired with the orange and white belt, it's soo pretty:)

Tamara @ Go Fish Style said...

so cute!

Audrey @ Putting Me Together said...

Guuuuurl, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Shop at Forever 21 with freedom. Why force yourself to shop at other stores when you can look cute (and still modest) shopping at Forever 21? Unless you want different quality or to change up your style, stick with what's working! And you are working this dress, lemme tell ya. :)

Kelly { MessyDirtyHair } said...

Who cares where you got if it looks good rock it! I love the dress & the red heels. So cute! And love it even more bc it was only $20 bucks!

Stephanie said...

You have the best Forever 21 finds! That bird print is so cute!

Emily said...

This is absolutely adorable! I love that dress.

MissRockwell said...

I don't think you have a problem either. I have stores that I frequent as well (Target, NY & Co) and all of my outfit posts have at least one item from one of those stores. I call it loyal consumerism!! LOL

AHHH I missed this post (and it was hard to find lol!). So adorable on you! I hope I can pull it off half as well as you do!

How do you get the slip to not ride up?! Help a sistah out!
