Hauls of the Week: From Forever 21 SM Makati Sale

March 17, 2013

There is a pandemic in Manila. People, mostly ladies are hit. How would you know you have the symptom? If you found yourself carrying a yellow shopping bag. I saw alot in Makati yesterday, and on my way home, I am one of the victims. But I am a happy victim.

Did I make you worry? Well, the pandemic is happening only until today, February 17th – it is Forever 21 Mad Sale in SM Makati and SM Cebu.

I just couldn’t resist. I used to do alot of shopping online from Forever 21 even before the brand landed in Manila; and after it has opened a store here, I thought I would stop. But I never stopped. Even if I am outside the country, I will find my feet bringing me to F21 store – and on my mind I will think “this is the last time I am doing the major hoard, we have a store in Manila anyway”. But back in Manila, I found myself inside the F21 store again.

Ladies, can you relate? Maybe, I grew up loving the brand, and in my genes run the Forever 21 DNA (and H&M and now, Bershka – my friend just introduced me to the brand).

Anyways, enough of the talk and analysis. I just want to share my purchases. There aren’t much though, just two pieces (essentials).

Black Lace Dress
From Php1,175 to Php 587 (50%)
I wish there was one in nude, but I bought this anyway. I love how 
I can wear it in the office, or even during events. 

I love the zipper detail at the back.
As usual this looks like a top on me, but who cares?  😉

Bubble Gum 3/4 Peplum Top
Regular Price Php 875
This one is not on sale, but I like it so it goes to the shopping bag. 
I have been looking for a nice peplum top, and this one fits the preferences. 

So there you go – I didn’t really have a lot in my shopping bag. I left some for the other shoppers. Wondering what to expect? Items on 50% off – but mostly broken sizes (Large size), and items on Buy-One-Take-One deals.

I saw a lot of dresses with sequins and glitters at Buy-One-Take-One, lace and leather skirts (but large sizes) at 50% (around Php500), and chiffon dresses.

You only have until today to check the racks. Enjoy!

Please come back and share me your hauls!
