Forever 21 Opening Day : Short Note

2 Jul

I am still gathering my thoughts about opening this morning at Megamall A 2nd Floor, where the HUGE, and I mean HUGE, Forever 21 stands. I only slept for three hours (stupid insomnia 😦 ) but still managed to get up at 8:30 and get ready. I’ll follow up on this as soon as I get some sleep!

Every person who was there this morning knows how the excitement and adrenaline pumped your body into grabbing everything that catches your eye. I can honestly say, I felt I was in line for a rollercoaster ride because I was excited but at the same time scared. Scare that I might spend all my money, which were not a lot to begin with. On the note of my recent purchase, I was not well equiped for the battle but I still showed up!

Ok, I’ll rest now. I promise to come back in a few hours. 😀 Good night for now, Forever 21 Manila!


Countdown: 4 days to go! Forever 21 Fever!

28 Jun

Seriously, I feel like fainting when I see sneak-peek photos of the store from bloggers who also anticipate the grand opening! I don’t know if you feel the same way, but I feel like a kid waiting for the opening of Disneyland in the Philippines. Although I don’t think it would fit well here. Look at Enchanted Kingdom. Sorry, but its not so ‘enchanting’ anymore.

Anyway, as we are all waiting for THE day, I’d like to share some of my Forever 21 items that I’ve used until the color faded. Hahaha. Most of these babies were purchased online and then I’d pick them up over at my sister’s place in New Jersey. I also buy stuff at Old Navy for casual tank tops and cool bags.

Here they are:

1. Violet Babydoll w/ 3/4 sleeves Smocked Dressy Top – One of my favorites, I wear it a lot. Like a lot. But now when I wear it I look like an eggplant so I rarely wear it na. Hahaha! I think  Ashley Gosingfiao, a Filipina cosplayer, also has the same dressy top I think, I’m not sure. But it does look alike. Of course she wore it better!

(ME) Dress by Forever 21, bag from Nine West, bracelet from Juicy Couture, bag from Eastwood City Tiangge.

2. Jeffrey Green Babydoll Eyelet Dress – Another favorite. I love wearing this on formal events. This picture was taken when DF’s band before had a gig at a hotel in Makati and I sang a few songs. Old school photo obviously ‘coz I’m a little bit thinner here. Okay, super thinner here. Hahaha!

3. Flower Print Top – Its satin-feel makes it very comfortable to wear. Sorry I don’t wear it without cover ‘coz I’m not zexy!

4. Black Bolero Cardigan – I love this so much! This is probably my favorite. I love how it goes with everything. You’ll see me wearing this when I have a sleeve-less top or a tube top on. It’s a life saver!

5. Black Tunic Print Top – I usually wear this without the belt because it gives too much emphasis on the ladies and my belly.

6. Striped Tunic – Another favorite! This was taken while on vacation at Sonya’s Garden at Tagaytay.

7. VIP Baseball Tee – I love wearing this on casual days. Taken during one of our stays at Holiday Inn Galleria.

8. Hello Kitty Tunic Top – Hello Kitty is ❤ and I can’t wait to wear this again. 😀

9. Yellow Watch – My mom actually got this for me with a matching yellow hobo bag. But I exchanged bags with her ‘coz she had green, and I love green more than yellow. See next picture!

10. Green Hobo Bag – It’s so roomy I can fit everything in there! Only problem is I put so many things it becomes too heavy for my shoulder. Hahaha! (Sorry, I can’t seem to find a picture that shows the whole bag. But here’s a peak of it.)

I’ll take more pictures of my other Forever 21 stuff that I got. I’m planning on selling the other accessories that I have that hasn’t been used yet. Sayang naman. But it’ll be less than the price of course. What’s the point of overpricing it when its coming to town! But these were last year’s find. Maybe you’ll like them. I’ll post it here and on my Multiply Store site: Roxi Sells . 😀

Forever 21 in Manila!

27 Jun


If you haven’t heard yet, then you must have been living under a rock. Forever 21 is coming to the Philippines this July 2nd! Now Filipinas can also enjoy the fashion and style of Forever 21. Worry not, it is not as expensive as Zara or Top Shop (at least for me those shops are way too expensivo). Forever 21 will keep you within your budget and keep you stylish at the same time.

According to the dashing Mrs. Cecile Zamora-Van Straten of Chuvaness.com, Forever 21 will have:

34 fitting rooms
60 sales assistants
17 cashiers
91 total staff, including management

I cannot ask for a store that I want to be franchised here in our dear country! I have been an avid fan and shopper of this wonderful store ever since I was 15 years old. I would always look at their website (www.Forever21.com) for new finds. I’d put them on my wish list and then have my sisters check it out and see if they can buy it for me.

You can create your own account on their website www.Forever21.com and have unlimited freedom of browsing through their online catalog for the main line, Forever 21, or Heritage 1981, Heritage81 Kids, Twelve by Twelve, 21 Men, Love Contemporary, and Faith 21. You can add items you want to your wish list or directly to your shopping cart.

Back then, I’d have my sisters in New Jersey buy them online and have them delivered to their home where I will be staying at. But now, I have our own Forever 21 store just a good 10-15 minutes away from my condo!

I’m telling you, you will find me in that line the morning they open their doors to public. I am dying to spend my hard earned money for new clothes, shoes, and bags. Maybe I’ll add a few accessories. I even have some accessories here from Forever 21 that I haven’t used yet, so let’s see if I find some new things I like. Sadly, they won’t be carrying the Faith 21 line here according to sources. I guess I just have to work ‘em fats off fast! Hahaha!

I hope they open up an online store where we can just order them through their website and have them delivered right at our doorstep.

I will update everyone on my first take on Forever 21 in Manila right after I shopped! Maybe I’ll post pictures too. 😀 See you guys at the opening! 🙂
