When: Saturday, July 10th, 2010

Where: On the way to brunch at Community Food & Juice

What: Tee (Forever 21), shorts (H&M), sandals (Michael Kors), bracelets (Forever 21)

For the second time this season (which is a lot for me), I decided to don a pair of shorts.  To jazz things up a bit, I had to add in an embellished tee.  Unfortunately I forgot to snap a rear view pic, because this one has a ribbon that ties in a really cute bow at the neck.

I originally had on a pair of platform wedges to help elongate my legs, but as I was leaving the house I thought it looked a little too high maintenance so I slipped into a pair of sandals instead.  I was so glad I did, because we wound up doing a lot of walking that morning!

When: Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Where: The Great Outdoors

What: Dress (Forever 21), shoes (Gap)

Yesterday was my first day back after an awesome trip to San Francisco (outfit pics, shopping notes, and packing tips to follow shortly).  We were pretty tired after catching a red-eye flight that morning, and the three hour time difference didn’t help matters much.  Also, facing 95 degree temps was definitely a big shock after having 5 straight days of 60 degree weather.

I’m not typically one of those people who dresses for the holiday (i.e. wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day or orange and black on Halloween).  But I did want to look a little festive since I was taking pictures for the blog.  Alas, red and white was about all I could muster.  But hey, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad… right?

Forever 21 Grand Opening in Times Square

Whoa Nelly… This sucker is huge!

Like any real New Yorker, I absolutely loathe Times Square.  But that didn’t stop me from braving the crowds this morning to head to the Grand Opening of this 90,000 square foot behemoth.

Like a giddy teen, I happily scoured 3 massive floors of cheap, girly goodness. After being handed a goody bag and a free gift card, all of us shoppers were greeted by dozens of screaming, cheering F21 staffers as we streamed into the store.

As I descended the escalator, I was immediately overwhelmed with the sheer size of it all.  Luckily, everything was meticulously organized, and the store clerks were quick to refold and restock items quicker than you could blink. Some cool new additions that I noticed were a shoe salon in the basement along with a cosmetics section where they served up free manicures to customers.

2 hours and 3 fitting room trips later, I left the store unscathed and with the following bounty in hand:

The best part is that between my free gift card and F21’s bargain basement prices, I barely put a ding in my wallet!
