new jewels



Like I said I went shopping yesterday and went to Birmingham, Obviously I went to Forever 21. Now when it comes to Forever 21 I'm in two minds, the jewellery hands down is some of the nicest stuff I've seen on the high street. The clothes leave a little to be desired, infact no, The clothes are nice there is just SO much stuff to look through its over whelming and so easy to just give up looking! Plus if you are over a size 12 I'd not even bother looking. There clothes a crazy small! I'm a 8-10 and seriously some styles I struggled to squeeze myself in! If you ever visit the Birmingham store you can see the whole visual merchandised layout of all the jewellery, its really beautiful and creative. I wish more highstreet shops took their approach! The prices of the stuff I bought ranged from about £2.80-£5.60, The prices are quite odd there!

According to the Forever 21 website there is a free shipping code with no minimum spend over the bank holiday weekend, but I'm having loads of trouble logging on so Im not sure whats going on!

  1. Wow, some amazing pieces there! I was definitely most impressed with the jewellery when I went to New York recently as well.
    I love the bold black cross,

  3. The colour of the blue stone is insanely amazing! Really wishing there was a Forever21 down here.

  4. I know what you mean about their jewelery, I went BONKERS when I went there, they set everything out so nicely. The clothes are a let down though, but their shoes make up for it a little bit.

    Love that black cross! xx

  5. Ooo I love the dark blue necklace!! I agree, they have fab jewels on offer but the clothes... I've never found anything that I liked and it's incredibly frustrating! Bit of a shame really.

  6. These are all really nice and sound very reasonable in price. I've only ever been to Forever21 in New York, and I know what you mean about there being so much stock it's overwhelming! I came out empty handed, despite loving it.

  9. The Forever 21 website isn't working for me either, maybe they are having an influx of visitors because of their free shipping code! Those necklaces are gorgeous, I really like the second one from the right, the colour is lovely.

  13. I always see other bloggers wearing some great stuff from Forever 21, but I can never seem to find it myself online. Wish I could get to Birmingham to take a look! x

  16. I live in Bham and I totally agree with the 'merchandised layout' comment. It feels nice to shop in there because it's all set out nicely.
    Anyway love the new jewels :) xx

  17. I'm a size 8-10 as well and I have to say I have to squeeze myself into some of their clothing as well.. That's basically the main reason why I never buy anything from F21 :/

    ReplyDelete
  18. absolutly loove these! We don't have Forever 21 at all in Portugal :( I also love the jewellery they have.

  19. I love them all, wish we had F21 here :/

    ReplyDelete
  20. I wish there was a F21 in London - it seems so cool :) x

    ReplyDelete
  21. I really love the big blue one :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I adore the navy necklace! I totally agree with you, the Forever21 store in Birmingham is so overwhelming.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've never really heard of Forever 21 except for on here I think, and after searching for their stores I now know why. The jewellery looks really lovely though, so I may have an online splurge!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love the first crop and the tooth necklace they are really lovely!xxx

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love Forever 21 jewelery too but the clothes are rubbish! I bought a dress and it ripped as soon as I got it and the sizes are tiny! I got to go to the press opening and wrote a review for the Uni of Birmingham newspaper if you are interested :) I think we share similar opinions! http://www.redbrickpaper.co.uk/2010/11/never-21/

  26. Those are some beautiful necklaces! I might have to invest in some like that!

  30. Lovely necklaces, a Forever 21 opened recently here in Dublin, I was a little disappointed though, I get what you mean by giving up, its huge like spread over 2/3 floors, so hard to find anything xx

    ReplyDelete
  31. F21 has an amazing jewelry collection all the time and for cheap as well. I love the ones you got, especially the gemstone and cross pendants.

  32. These pieces all look lovely, I adore F21, spent $126 while in their new york flagship last month so may just have to take advantage of that kind tip off - cheers! x

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ooh, I rather love the black cross. I haven't graced a F21 since I went to the NY store. I picked up some amazing jewellery but the clothes can be so hit and miss like you said :/

    ReplyDelete
  34. ooh purdy! i've never actually been in a forever21 store :(

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love everything on their site! x

  38. Gorgeous jewels! I would so love to go to Forever 21 but Birmingham is literally miles from me and such a rubbish location for me to get to. Hoping they open in London very soon!

  40. GORGEOUS peices!
    and i totally agree with what you said with forever 21. i live in birmingham so i know exactly what you mean about the store layout, what i tend to do is look online for clothes i like then just search for them in store!
    and dear god 8/10! would be a dream come true if i was that size haha

  41. I'm yet to buy anything from forever 21.. I agree it's so overwhelming to search through everything, and I don't like buying stuff till I've seen it all but usually don't get through it all!

    Love your necklaces though.. beautiful :)

  61. Those are some mighty fine jewels. I'll have to tell my housemate she's going through a 'The Craft' inspired phase.

  62. Forever21 is my favorite place to buy jewelry. it's all so fantastic, yet thrillingly inexpensive. you picked out some great pieces! my favorite is the whistle.

  63. I completely agree with you, I adore the store itself but the clothing can be quite lacklustre, small and there is way too much. I bought a beautiful lavender lace top from there however, and a load of jewellery! My favourite piece was a little gold ice-cream necklace :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Gorgeous necklaces, I agree Forever21 has some of the best jewelery :)

  66. 21 is a must for accessories.I also went to Micheals Arts and Crafts here in the States for art supplies and I found out they sell natural stone pendents and all sorts of jewlery odds and ends. I got a cool large turqouise pendent similiar to the one you wear for $2.65 with the 40% coupon they emailed me.
