Forever 21 Comes to the UK (and I go Shopping!)

Today I took a trip to Birmingham and paid my first ever visit to the brand new Forever 21 store. It’s the only Forever 21 currently in the UK and opened a few weeks before Christmas. I have to say I was just a little excited to see it! Although I didn’t actually end up buying any clothes (major disappointment!) I did have a good nosey around the store. It’s actually pretty nicely laid out, the same as the larger stores in the US (if anyone has been to the Las Vegas Flagship store, it’s very similar to that) set out over three floors.

As with previous visits to Forever 21, I tried on various items of clothing but didn’t end up buying any of them. I tend to get overwhelmed by the selection and just buy basics if I do pick up anything, but as always I was very impressed with the jewellery selection. A literal treasure trove of affordable jewellery with walls and walls covered in enticing gems! Price wise, as common with US brands, they have basically changed the Dollar sign to a Pound so it does work out more expensive, but still very affordable. Similar prices to H&M.

I did make a little purchase in the form of a necklace that I’ve been on the hunt for forever. Actually I picked up two different variants on the necklace in order to layer them…

Pretty thin gold chains with pink/coral ‘stones’ (fake ones!) held within it a la Tiffany’s Diamonds by the Yard!

I also picked up one of the finer chains as a little New Year’s giveaway gift for one of you!
