The other night I took my sister on a last minute shopping trip before she heads back to uni. One shop that continues to impress me is Forever 21. Primark I feel is ever increasing in price, but the quality remains low. Forever 21 on the other hand always offers good value for money - the clothing lasts longer, it's better quality and I would argue that the prices are lower than Primark's nowadays. Thoughts? My sister managed to pick up a whole basketful of things ready for her return to uni and it came to just over £30! The Oxford Street F21 is massive - three floors worth! - so we spent a good few hours there. I didn't buy much, but I did pick up these beauts:

This top made me laugh and I grabbed it straight away because I am very particular with language. Bad spelling, bad grammar and comic sans font are all life's little annoyances.  I was an English teacher for a year so I can be excused right?! Although a small (the smallest size they do it in), this t-shirt is very over-sized... but it's such a comfy fit, I can turn a blind eye to that! It came as a set with these alphabet / typeface shorts which are good around-the-house-type-shorts. The sort of thing you can pull on if the postman rings the doorbell helluva early in the morning so you don't give him an eyeful!

This is me to a tee (pardon the pun!). I'm just not myself if I'm hungry... but I'm sure I'm not alone! :) This tee is actually part of a PJ set, however the shorts were missing on all of them for some reason. The shop couldn't find them either. In the end they gave me some money off of them because they obviously weren't a complete set! I don't mind though - I'm planning on using it as an everyday top anyway...

This top was one of the most expensive items I found that day... but for a mere £18, it's still nothing! The gold embroidery detail is gorgeous and - in my opinion - really calls for hair to tied up to show it off. I have a friend's birthday this weekend and think this'll look perfect with some heels and an up do.

Big love for this pyjama set with the tea cup shorts! I don't usually wear anything to bed - plus I'm a bit unsure of the colour pink - so I left these behind. I'd love a phone case or a purse in that print though!

Thanks for reading!
