If everyone goes to the Forever 21 opening...will that mean they will all come to school next week wearing the same thing, feeling like unique, individualistic fashionistas? (Joseph, 2010)
At least more girls will dress better; even if they do in the same way. (Kim, 2010)
DUH Joseph, I'm gonna wear everything I bought next year pa! It's my style! Hahaha. (Nissy, 2010)
It started with my friend Joseph's facebook status then comments that followed were either interestingly funny or hilarious. And this one came from my boyfriend.
I don't know Forever 21 until today. (JR, 2010)

Long cover-up Vivienne Westwood | Slashed Necklace DIY | Bag Thrifted |
Earrings Dept. store | Black socks | White belt Herbench |
That's how I left the Forever 21 store today after checking out racks and racks of clothes (along with about more or less a hundred other girls) because I realized that I'd rather spend my shopping savings on ukay, Divisoria, Quiapo, and department store shopping.
Yes (with a slight chuckle). I, the one who swore (to myself) never to go to Forever 21's opening day, the one who swore not to give in to the at-the-moment fashionista "craze", like every trend-savvy shopper in Metro Manila, ended up checking out the brand's flagship store in SM Megamall today.
Won't be using this shoe. I'll be selling it in my store! Hardly used. Wore them here and during my friend's wedding only (to be posted soon).
I need shoe closet space. ^__^
Price range of apparels is okay but pretty much just the same like Bayo, Kashieca, Kamiseta, Oxygen some Topshop and Zara items, etc (in short, like most brands in the mall). Accessories are affordable enough.
I liked a few items but aside from the fact that I am kuripot (so I plan to buy at least two items only if ever), I wasn't patient enough to fall in line and I meant LIIIIIINNNNNEEEE. So maybe, I'll just go back next time when there are "fewer" people. Saw a lot of girls with fab outfits but I was way too lazy to take pictures. Shy din kasi ako eh! Haha.
At first I was all cheers. I made it.
After a few minutes waiting... I looked bored and ready to leave.
While waiting in line, I saw my orgmate Joseph (contributor/photographer of Rogue magazine, daily newspapers, etc.). Thank god I had someone with me because my boyfriend really wanted to get out of there, go to the hardware store or book sale. Since Jo went there alone, we decided to be window shopping/ actual shopping buddies for the day.
Jo wasn't that happy with the men's section of the store. We went to Oxygen then SM department store for their 70% sale promo. Weee! I bought new shoes. That's all.
Jo was like: What? P700 for a white shirt? My favorite white tee is from Divisoria. Just P90.
Yes that's our price standards haha. Echos.
Since it's our 25th monthasary, I had to leave Jo and go with JR. For more cheap thrills, we dined at Max's because they have an all-you-can-eat-chicken treat. Yey for JR only kei. I had tofu! Boo diet and healthy eating. Haha.
That's about eeeet! Oh wait! My necklace was inspired by Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2010 key accessory. DIYed it myself. I just slashed relentlessly on my old gray shirt and tadah! That's the product of my experiment. Though it doesn't look exactly like it, I'm still proud of my own little project. Haha. Lots of people kept on looking. Maybe they were wondering what exactly this is. Haha.
