After many failed attempts to try to use up my gift card at the Forever 21 stores, I went online and found tons of cute stuff! I found two tops that I was very anxious to get from the Love 21 line in XS. Up first is the orange ruffle top!
Top: Forever 21 Ruffle Crinkle Top- size XS
Skirt: Bebe White Skirt- size 00 (similar HERE)
Shoes: Nine West Escher Peep Toes- size 5 (on sale HERE)

This one doesn't fit perfectly but it fits well enough to get away with. The only complaint I have is that it has a side zipper so it doesn't tuck in well- which we all know I love to tuck in my tops!
This top reminds me of the Ann Taylor Charmeuse ruffle top. I just love this bright, bold orange color! I can wear it for fall underneath a cardigan and dress it up or down. Not bad for $20! The fit could be a bit smaller but I think I can deal with it. Totally keeping this!!!
I attempted a brown skinny belt.....didn't like it.
Here is the 100% silk top in XS:
Ooooo the color is just stunning!!! I so wish it fit better! I even tried tucking it in but it's just too big! And alterations on silk is way too much for me to spend on a F21 top. I am so sad that this is too big. Even too big to get away with. The material is 100% silk and super soft against the skin!!!! The detail on the ruffle area is lovely. But unfortunately, it's going back! :(
Here are some other F21 tops that are super cute: (not sure about the sizing since clearly all XS's are not the same)
Ruffled Hem Silk Top (on major sale for $11.99)
This is perfect for those of you who like loose, flowing tops! You really cannot beat the price for silk!
I am shocked that there are so many silk tops at Forever 21! I wish the sizing was consistent. It seems to me that shopping online as suggested by some of you lovely readers is MUCH easier than putting up w/the loud music and crowds of teeny-boppers in the store. My petite GAP jeans should be arriving soon so stay tuned for a review on those!
