Forever 21 Liverpool Store Opening! #F21LayerLaydown

Last Saturday was the opening of the new Liverpool Forever 21 store and we were invited along to host the #F21LayerLaydown challenge! We arrived an hour after it opened and it was jam-packed with fashionistas snapping up the bargains.


Jacket, Jumper, Leggings: c/o Forever 21

We were both kitted out with Forever 21 for the event, and I chose these super velvet suspender legs (£10.50), Los Angeles knit jumper (£18.75) and this olive/faux leather jacket (£36.75) which has a nifty zip so I can get my crop on if I want. The store opening was the most successful one in the UK, the boys and girls of Liverpool just couldn't get enough and neither could we!

The shop had an incredible atmosphere, the first 200 shoppers were given gift cards and the instore DJ was playing the hottest tracks! There was also a performance by the beautiful A*M*E who was decked out in Forever 21 (naturally). I want her floral kimono, how cute!?

Both Jade & I were extremely impressed by the prices, everything is so affordable with lots of garments as cheap or cheaper than Primark! Hello £7 jeans and £2 vest tops. We were hosting the #F21LayerLaydown challenge in the basement with the lovely Frances of Frances Cassandra which was lots of fun. The store was giving away a HUGE £1000 gift card to one lucky shopper who styled an outfit, took a snap of it and uploaded it to Instagram using the competition hashtags. We can't wait to find out who the winner is, there were lots of awesome outfits created!

I'm sure you'll agree Jade looked amazing in her plaid/leopard combo! She fell in love with these leopard skinnies (£18.75) after spotting them on the mannequin and a helpful member of staff tracked them down for her. It's worth noting all the staff in this store are just sooo nice.

We noticed lots of layering and clashing prints on the mannequins and the way the garments are merchandised is fantastic! The items placed on a rail work well together, allowing you to shop easily if you're someone who likes outfit suggestions. We really liked the Plus Size department which had tons of stylish pieces and even more helpful sales assistants. Special shout out to Fern - it was lovely to meet you! ;)

Both of us went shopping once the challenge was finished, we bought jewelz, accessories and bargain knitwear! Stay tuned for some outfit posts featuring those bits. We could happily live inside this store forever...

Do you have a Forever 21 near you?

  17. Want that olive/leather jacket! The closest F21 to me is London so I've only been a couple of times. Trying to be a good girl and do the whole 'less is more thing' at the moment but it's hard when I see lush outfits like these! Looking forward to seeing what you've bought x
