“ Brand: Forever 21 / Type: Floral Dress. „
When it comes to the summer, I like to change my wardrobe completely to ensure that I am stocked up with lovely, girly pieces. I am a huge fan of bargain high street stores such as Primark and H&M, however when I went to Birmingham recently, I had to take a look in Forever 21. Forever 21 is a huge store in the US, and I am not sure how many are open in England, but I'm pretty sure it is minimal. The one in Birmingham is huge and full of gorgeous goodies for reasonable prices. I wanted a nice top to pair with leggings, and stumbled upon this floral twisted back dress.
I bought this quite a while ago, and I think the price was £11.75 or along those lines. This is a very reasonable price for a good quality and unique top. As I am 5"4, I can actually wear this as a dress which makes it perfect for the summer months. Although £11.75 is a great price, I actually purchased this on a student night, so I got this for just shy of £8.00 which I think is absolutely fantastic. This, as well as all other items are really well priced in this store, so price was fantastic.
This was actually available in a couple of other shades, but I opted for the navy/black shade with coloured flowers all over it. I think it was lovely and stood out quite well, without being too in your face. The scoop neck of this top makes it very flattering, and the overall shape when worn looks fantastic. In terms of length, it is quite short, however I can get away with wearing it as a dress just because I am short, however this looks fantastic on its own, with leggings, with jeans etc... It can be combined with many things to look great. If you team some jewellery with it, it really stands out and can make a lovely, yet bargain outfit.
The appearance of the top/dress is wonderful, but I did find one problem with it. It comes in the sizes S M L which makes it a bit awkward for those who are oddly sized. I went for small as I am quite petite. However, I have quite a large bust, so this meant that it fits perfectly in some places, but then is extremely tight around the bust. The next size up was just too loose, so it would be better if they had a wider range of sizes. This is really the only flaw I could find with it. In the areas it was tight in, I found that the fabric stretched slightly which ruined the overall look of it.
Overall, this is a lovely top which can be used as a dress and is perfect for both day time wear as well as night wear. Unfortunately, it is no longer available on the website, however it is worth looking in stores if there is one near you. There are many items which are similar to this if you are interested. I found this is a great quality item for such a good price. Hope this helped and thanks for reading.
