So, since moving to Marylebone in Central London, I am only a 10 minute walk from Selfridges, Bond Street and Oxford Street. Which basically means serious danger for me (in shopping terms).
Whenever I am bored, restsless or just in a shopping mood, I stroll down and look through the shops (although I always try to avoid Oxford Street like the plague). I have been quite curious to check out the much hyped Forever 21 since it launched in the UK earlier in the year, and it was exactly what I expected. Mass produced and trend led fast fashion. I’m not saying this is a negative (Zara is great example of this), but I do feel like the majority of styles are a bit too young for my personal taste. However as always, I manage to filter through and spot key pieces that can work well in my wardrobe.
One of the two pieces I picked up was this plaid shirt. I love the rugged material and colour combination. I can’t wait to dress this up with my leather skirt and heels for a night out, or keeping it more casual with my Converse.
Shirt from Forever 21, £16.75.
