I go to the mall with my family on Sundays, which we usually do, but I wasn't expecting Forever 21 to have a crazy good sale - a further reduction of 50% off on all markdown items! I wasn't planning on buying anything, but one valuable tip I've learned was this:
Buy clothes when you don't need it, not when you need it.
The rationale behind this is that you'll have the luxury of time to window shop all you want and get the best deal when you don't really need a particular item as of the moment, but in time, you know that you'll have use for it. Example: jackets are on sale during summer, and swimwear are on sale during rainy season. Take advantage of that!
And, when you need clothes, this is usually something urgent, so you'll buy the first one you see. It might not be the best deal, but you still buy it because you need it. Example, a party dress for an event happening tomorrow. Even if it's not on sale, you'll get it anyway because you need it.
The lesson here is that, when you see a good deal that you can't resist, wherein you know that the purchase will give you good value for money, by all means - go for it!
Okay, I think I said too much just to justify my guiltless haul!
Forever 21 Green Athletic Jacket (
P1,025.00 -> P719.00 -> P359.50)
Say hello to my first ever hoodie purchase, since I graduated college! I've worn cardigans at work for the longest time since it looks more professional. This one is for weekends or my "feeling sporty" days. I love that it's green! It brings back memories of college.
Forever 21 Light Blue Tie-dye Short Sleeve Knit Top
P915.00 -> P619.00 -> P309.50)
My sisters hate this, but I love it! The fabric used in this top is so buttery soft and it feels so nice on the skin. (Pardon its wrinkled state here; it looks nice after I had it washed and ironed.) Because it's loose, it's so comfy. I'd pair it with a high-waist black shorts for an effortlessly sexy look.
Forever 21 Teal Clip-on Earrings (
P330.00 -> P179.00 -> P89.50)
My favorite purchase yet! My ears aren't pierced, so it's hell to find clip-on earrings. I actually spotted these months ago in store when it was still priced at P179.00, but I didn't buy it because it's not something I can use everyday. Lo and behold, it's now crazy cheap at less than a hundred bucks. You know what happened next. :D
I'm very happy and satisfied with my purchases. Tell me, what's your favorite Forever 21 find?
