I figured since I’d just recently posted photos of my hair a month after that horrible dye job (dis), why not post photos the day after?
Obviously, I’d seen my hair after that woman had destroyed it, but that was during night-time and in artificial lighting. The morning after, outdoors and in natural sunlight, I took one look at my hair color and let out a colorful stream of expletives. Not to beat a dead horse, but I payed a lot of money for dry and frizzy hair (my hair is still mad at me since that incident) and worst of all, that looked nothing like the ashy-blonde that I’d asked for (and shown them pictures of, from their own Instagram account lol)
It might sound like I might be exaggerating for effect, so I figure a picture is worth a thousand words ergo here ya’ go! That said, it’s not really that big of a deal. It’s just hair. I’m glad I went through with it anyway, because it confirmed the fact that as I’m getting older, I much prefer darker hair on myself.
As you can see, I went hard at Forever 21!
I was only cutting through Forever 21 to get to the rest of the mall (It’s just more convenient to park my car right outside the store), but as soon as I set foot in there, I clocked the cutest Tulle Mesh Tutu Skirt (which I tried on in every single size), but sadly didn’t end up getting. Undeterred, I practically tried on the entire store (or at least several pieces from each section)… Everything at Forever 21 looked mad appealing to me, ergo this haulage! I never even made it out of the store (to the rest of The Avenues) lol
I parked my car outside Forever 21 to get to H&M so I could exchange the H&M White V-Neck Frilled Blouse (haulage here) for a smaller size. I was only passing through F21 when I saw some stunning Blue Tweed Lace-Up Platform Boots (they had metallic thread running through them that sparkled so beautifully) and these gorgeous White Pointed Toe Ankle Booties. Realistically speaking, I doubt I’d feel comfy wearing the Blue Tweed Lace-Ups out in public (they were a bit extra), but I had to try on those White Booties! One thing led to another and I ended up getting 2 Red Tops (one from the men’s section and one from the women’s section) and 1 Blue Crossbody Bag and even a colorful Lilac/Pink Ombre Wig (don’t ask), in addition to those White Booties! The total for everything I got was only KD 39. Out of all my hauls, I think this one was hands down the cutest!
I don’t like Forever 21 because I always get suckered into buying things I’d never actually wear. I can’t help it though. Everything they’ve got in the entire store looks so stinkin’ cute! That’s saying something because I’m not even a clothes person (you know what I mean). I just wear whatever (namely jeans) and be done with it. Even back before Forever 21 opened up in Kuwait, I’d always purchase a bunch of stuff from the Forever 21 in Dubai (because Dubai is way cooler than Kuwait and they already had a Forever 21 over there years before we did) and end up with buyer’s remorse as soon as our plane touched down in Kuwait. With that being said, I prefer not dealing with the whole underground parking situation at the Avenues (zero sense of direction) so I’d park right outside Forever 21. As such, I usually pass through Forever 21 to get to the rest of the mall, which means all those cute clothes dead-eyeing me as I pretty much gallop out of the store in my haste to avoid the cuteness! More often then not, I’m able to resist their siren song. This haul however is the result of my giving in (which I do, from time to time). I’m only human after all…
If clothing stores were restaurants, Forever 21 would be a trendy fast food joint, satisfying and inexpensive. That said, in their bid to take over the retail world (contemporary line, and plus-size line) they are now delving into the realm of cosmetics with a new makeup line called “Love & Beauty“. Again, emphasis on the glitter.
Now we’ll be able to get our cheap makeup fix the same place we get our cheap fashion fix! What do you lovelies think?
