Ootd: Plus some Forever21 reviews

Happy April Fool's Day! Did anyone play any pranks on you today? Nothing for me, and I much prefer it that way.

Slept in today, did some house work, went out and ran errands. Planning on dinner out with friends tonight, same old Friday night for me. Just how I like it pretty much.

 What I wore for my errands etc. Compeer Dress, Forever21 yellow camisole, Bluenotes cardigan (picked up for $5!), Joya and Vane necklace.

Since I had to go to the bank today, I stopped by Forever21 to try on some different sort of things that I would not normally reach for.

 Military style zipper front dress. Priced at $18.80 CAD, this was a really cute piece. I am wearing a medium, but sadly it is way to short for me to wear comfortably without tights. I am 5'6", and I would say it came to just the end of my finger tips. I think if the skirt was less flared, it would feel a bit longer.
On the plus side, the wide ruched middle would make anyone's waist tiny. I recommend if you are more petite in height then me.

Rust coloured pullover, $18.80 CAD. I have been looking for a substitute for Anthropologie's Neo-refinement pullover, and this might be the perfect choice. Wearing a size medium. I love the colour (obviously), and the ruching plus fabric hides any flaws without looking sloppy. Also shown are a pair of purple cuffed tencel shorts from the Love21 line in size medium. These are $23.80 CAD and such a pretty colour. They have a little bit of pleating on the front, but just enough to create interest, not add bulk.

Speaking of pleating, everyone says it is a no-no, but I find that it sometimes a good thing, depending on your figure. While I am not a fan of them with pants, I think for shorts, they work well. Never hurts to try them on at least right?
