I had to run some wedding errands yesterday (I had to see if a wedding dress I saw online was the one I wanted–it was!) and before going to my appointment I stopped at Forever 21. I honestly can’t stand being in that store. I typically make my F21 purchases online or early in the morning right as the store opens for business. I got to the store just as they opened (9am!) and I was able to browse in peace.
This particular Forever 21 has three floors (AHHHHHHHHHH!!! MY HEAD!) and the top floor has hundreds, maybe even thousands, of stuff on sale. I had no plans to dig through the stuff, so once I found a few racks of skirts I quickly sifted through them and found the skirt I’m wearing today.
Every sale item was buy one get another item free. The skirt was marked down to $8.99, but when I got t the register it was and additional 50% off.
So I scored the skirt and a Japanese inspired buttonless cardigan wrap for $7.49 total (above; I bought the belt at a thrift store three weeks ago). They had plenty of different skirts, but the majority of them were small and medium sizes. When I tried the skirt on I figured I had either lost weight or Forever 21 mismarked their skirt. This skirt actually fit! Since I’m on a mission to drop 20 lbs I’m hoping I lost the weight!

Modest bridesmaid dresses: WHERE ARE THEY? I only have two attendants in my wedding (my sister and my awesome friend), and both ladies have agreed to wear what I suggest. However, I can’t find anything that I like! I thought about getting a dress made, but the fabric I like is WAY too expensive. David’s Bridal? Ugh. That place is my last resort.
eShakti: I haven’t found anything quite yet on the site that I like for my wedding.
Shabby Apple: My friend ordered her bridesmaid dresses through the company and the girls were not a fan of the fabric or the quality of the work.
So, I need your help. If you’ve been in a wedding let me know where you found your dress. Brides, what did you do about modest wedding dresses?
Speaking of weddings…check out the succulent plants I just purchased. They are gorgeous! You can read more about succulents on my wedding blog.
