11th of October


Top and shorts from Primark
Vintage bag
Graceland shoes

There it is again, the hat! It's just one of my favorite items right now and I love that it goes with so many different outfits. However, I'll try to be more versatile with my accessories from now on, haha.

A few days ago I heard some news that made me very happy. In 2011, Forever21 will come to Holland and Belgium! I've been windowshopping at their online shop for ages but I've never ordered anything cause of the crazy shipping costs. Shopping in Amsterdam will be so much better from 2011 on: we will also get our very own Primark!

Oooh dear bank account, I apologize in advance.

Mind you, it has been said that Primark has awful ethics concerning employees and the environment!

Yeah, I'm aware of that. There has to be a reason that it's so cheap - besides the bad quality of the garments. But then again, nearly all popular brands (H&M etc) work this way, otherwise everything would be as expensive as American Apparel.

aw! haha, there are TONS of forever 21 stores here in arkansas and everywhere else in the US. The prices are cheap, but the quality isn't so great on most things. I also can't buy their jeans because I have hips, and I don't weigh 90 pounds, ha- so i have to shop at Gap, which is nicer anyway. However- f21 does have alot of cute stuff and its cheap! y'know, you can always let me know if you see something really cool- it'd be easy for me to pick up something for you!

Laura @ The World Looks Red said...

Yeah I guess it's the same as H&M over here. There are some places outside of Europe that don't have H&M and then I'm like: WHAT? Cause you don't really appreciate them being there, but then again; if they wouldn't be there you'd miss them a lot.

I don't really mind if something is not great quality; I only buy dresses, really, and stuff usually disappears into a dark corner of my closet after I've worn it like 5 times.

Thanks, you're so sweet, Jessica! But I guess I can wait 'til we have our very own F21. There's nothing that i like SO MUCH that I need to have it NOW. ♥

You're going to love having a Forever21! I remember when it first opened in the local mall, it was mind-blowing! :D Now if only we could have a Primark too! We're just starting to get H&Ms though, so maybe someday!

Anyway, you look really pretty. :)

Kristina said...

Excellent! Love your style, the dresses, hat, vintage pieces...everything

Laura @ The World Looks Red said...

Thanks everyone! ♥

@Suze: Ja dat denk ik ook! Maar gelukkig is het voor mij dan niet meer zo'n onderneming om er naartoe te gaan; deze week ben ik eens 's ochtends naar Rotterdam gekard, want voor 11u is het nog niet zo druk. Maarja, dan zit ik dus een uur en 10 minuten in de trein (ik gebruik dat altijd als excuus als er een tentamenweek aan zit te komen; in de trein leer in tenminste fatsoenlijk ;)). Hoofddorp is maar een kwartiertje! <3
