Hello everybody and happy Thursday! Today, I decided to bring you a more, I guess, talky video and present to you a haul of the things that I’ve purchased recently from Rainbow, Forever 21, and the Goodwill.
It’s mainly just a mini haul of things that I’ve picked up recently, especially since Memorial Day has passed and a lot of stores have been having really great sales. So I decided to share these things with you before I post them into actual styled outfits on my blog.
So, first I’m going to begin with things that I’ve picked up from Forever 21 during their Memorial Day sale. So I picked up a couple of necklaces from their, the first of which is this fringe necklace.
And it’s just really fun and it’s this nice kind of rose goldy shade with all of these beads all over them – eugh- all over it. It just dangles down and I really like it. I think it’s good to style with a plain white t-shirt if you wanna have, like kind of, a really quick outfit.
Just throw this on top and it’ll take it to the next level. And it is $8.90 on site. I picked it up for about, I think, $6 during the Memorial Day sale cause I think it was 30% off. And I’ll be sure to link it down below if they still have it.
The second thing that I purchased from that sale is this nice really dainty necklace. It’s kind of got this fringe on it and a little bar and a small silver pendant. And I really like this. I think it’s fun to style with an outfit that maybe already has a lot of fun pattern or print to it, and then just add this on so you can have something around your neck to add a little extra emphasis there, but that won’t really over power the outfit.
And this was, I think, around $6 normal price on the site and I got it for $3.49. I’m not sure. As I said before, I will link this on the description box if I can find it. So the next store that I did a little shopping at was Rainbow.
And the first thing that I picked up there was an overall dress because I am obsessed with overalls and shortalls and pretty much anything like that. And it is just this very nice blue and white striped one – oh – this is actually a baby blue.
And it’s kind of like a bit of a denim pattern – I don’t think it was real denim. It was only $10. And what I like about it is that it has a zipper on it so it’s really easy to put on. And then it also has multiple buttons on each side so it’s adjustable at the waist.
So if you have any kind of waistline fluctuations or you just have problems where sometimes things don’t fit you, it’s really good, because even when you get it in the size it’s still not one size fits all.
It can accommodate any size. So maybe you’re a medium but you might be more of a smedium – smalle medium – then you can just pull it in. So I really, really enjoy that. So the next thing that I bought at Rainbow is just this basic infinity scarf.
And it is just this nice light pink color and it has this fun pineapple print all over it. Which I love because I’ve been seeing pineapple print all over the place and I think it’s a very fun trend for the summer and spring time.
And I think, again, like, all, like, that huge fringe necklace that I got from Forever 21, this is a good piece to add to a really basic outfit to give it an extra touch of something very, very fun. and it was $3, because all of their infinity scarves were $3 when I went there.
And I really like it and I’m excited to wear it! The last store that I went to was the Goodwill and I bought 2 things that I really like and on thing that I’m kind of iffy on and a little bit disappointed and probably will be re-donating back to the store.
So the first thing that I got was this nice chevron print top. And it’s got these blue and tan, I guess, chevron zig zaggy pattern all over it. And I really like it. I has a nice aquatic touch to it. I think it’s good for the summer because it’s sleeveless and I feel like it’s a really good transition piece.
You can style it casually as I have done before – and I’ll link the post where I am wearing this on my blog down below in the description box – but I feel like it’s also good for dressing up. I’ve worn it to job interviews before, so I feel like it’s a really flexible piece which is something I really enjoy.
And it was $3.49. The second thing that I got at the Goodwill that I really enjoyed was this kind of, like, kimono-y jacket. (sings angelically) Yeah. And it’s from American Eagle Outfitters. Like the top that I got it was $3.
49. And it’s got this really cool light blue pattern all over it which I really like. Just like centralized on the shoulder area. And then this lace all around it so I feel like it’s just a very fun piece to throw on.
And I’m really pleased with this purchase because I’ve been wanting kind of like a kimono type jacket for a while. So I’m really glad that I came across this one. And the last thing that I got from the Goodwill that I’m actually very disapppointed in are these short.
Ummm. And they are just this nice pink and white pattern which I really liked. And it had the double closure up here and i’m really a fan of that rather than the traditional button style because I’m not really a huge fan of just having a huge button in the middle of shorts.
So I picked these up because I was like “I should get a more structured short that also doesn’t have a lot of the stuff that I hate in structured shorts.” But, unfortunately, the fabric of them is very thin.
They have these white pockets on them but because the fabric of the shorts are so thin, when you wear them – or I don’t know if my skin’s just too dark for them or something – but the white of the pockets shows through and then you can kind of see the darkness of my legs and I don’t like having that contrast.
So I’m not really sure that I’m ever actually going to wear these just because of that and they say on the tag that they’re J Crew and I’m not sure if it is, because I’d expect that if it really was then the quality of them would be a lot better.
But if I do end up donating them I won’t mind. They were $3.50, so whatever! But, yeah, that was basically my haul of everything that I’ve recently purchased over the past couple of weeks. If you like it be sure to subscribe and click that thumbs up button for more cool videos like this.
