Iconic Casual Trench Coat
My last two purchases from Forever 21 were mostly unsuccessful. The Twisted Wrap Top was perhaps the best of the bunch but I can't help but feel there are better options out there. The Romantic Lace Midi Skirt that I was initially very excited about was just mediocre and the Dainty Crochet Lace Crop Top overpriced. The Daring Darling Moto Jacket is far from adequate unless you happened to be the exact size the design is fitted for.

The Go-To Sporty Jacket was, as other reviewers noted, awkward when zipped up and the material not as substantial as I expected (which gave it an easily wrinkled appearance).

I recently went to Madewell to test drive the Transport Tote and think it's a purchase I will make at some point this year. For those of you who are also interested, I will keep my eyes peeled for discounts that will work on the bag (as it is currently excluded from most promotions).

    1. The mini transport is so cute and looked great on my friend, who is about a size smaller than me. It is limited in use because of its size so if you are interested, a Madewell visit may be necessary. :)

  2. So many cute things!

    I was wondering what are the heeled boots on the bottom pic? I've been looking for black boots that would fit my small 5.5 feet for so long!

    1. The boots are Ralph Lauren but I have bigger feet compared to you (I take a 7 in boots) so don't know if my recommendations are appropriate. Jean at Extra Petite wears a 5/5.5 so her boots reviews are probably more useful (http://www.extrapetite.com/) :)

  3. I'm on the lookout for a trench.. the one from Forever 21 looks like a perfect length for someone petite. Did you get a chance to try it on? I don't want to take the plunge and order online, but the closest store is kind of far from me.

    1. I have not. Ordering online is also risky so if you don't have F21 store credit that need to be used, I wouldn't recommend it. I'll look for it when I go to the mall next and will report my findings. :)

    2. Unfortunately I don't have any store credit. I really wish they had a different return policy. Thank you so much!
