You all know I love love love pretty designer handbags.. and shoes (okay, and maybe jewelry & jeans as well). But, I also find a lot of joy in finding cute, trendy pieces at a good price point. Personally, I think it is best to buy super trendy items at a lower cost mainly because you can only get *so* much wear out of them. Either they are too memorable to re-wear a ton or they are not on trend 3 months later. Any who, I was in Forever 21 a couple of weeks back and was kind of shocked at their cute, trendy pieces, all of which were like $25 and under! Now, before I get ahead of myself – I will be the FIRST to say ‘you get what you pay for’ – so don’t expect this pieces to be the most flattering or to not have strings coming lose after a wash… BUT still, they are great for a date night or concert. If you pay attention, you’ll see that even though I have yet to wear the sandals from F21 – they are already missing a gem. :/ 
 
But I found a couple of other sites I like that have trendy items at great price points that I’d thought I’d quickly share those pieces.
 
Oh and sorry I am not ‘ modeling’ these… this baby is really, really large and totally in charge. Things do not look quite that flattering on me anymore!! But I’m ok with it!!<3 OH! And this is in no way form or fashion a sponsored post. I wanted to do something a little different. 

 

^these pillows are available HERE & settee HERE.
Cute striped pink off the shoulder top w/bell sleeves HERE. (I got a medium for the bump and it works!)
Rag & Bone shorts are from past seasons – this seasons are HERE. (these are designer & HIGH quality.. Ive had mine for years and wear them like crazy).
Pink bow slide sandals HERE.

 

One of my FAVE online shops is Chicwish – I am obsessed. I think they have the cutest clothes – w/ the best quality – and the best price points. No, they aren’t $25 or under, but they are much better quality and I wash and re-wear their stuff a ton!
 
Striped bell sleeve bow top is HERE.
Monogram is HERE.
Wedges are HERE.

 

Off the shoulder striped dress w/tie on shoulder is HERE. This dress works well w/ my bump and I got a medium. Runs large.
Sandals HERE. (these same sandals are available HERE and they are much better quality if you are willing to pay just a little bit more – which I would recommend bc they are more comfy.)

 

This dress is another Chicwish find. I was hoping it would work w/my bump but no way jose. 
 
The white lace dress is available HERE

 

Okay, this dress is from an online site that is VERY hit or miss. I actually placed a huge order bc they e-mail me a lot asking to collaborate. As a blogger, I don’t collaborate with 90% of the brands that reach out… I do a lot of researching and sometimes even place an order of my own. I ordered 4-5 items and honestly I was pleased. The shipping cost me $15 and I had it at my house in 8 days. Sadly, not everything fit well – mainly bc of this big bump! But I went ahead and steamed and kept it all so I can wear after. This stuff is VERY cheap, so it is not the best quality but it is good for a 1-2 time wear w/o a wash. 🙂 
 
The pink pom dress is available HERE. The medium actually fit over my bump (which is massive) but was too short in the front. SO I would say it may run a little big!

 

How cute is this bag from F21?!!? I think it’s perfect for the lake or beach… or work. Just take off the tassels if you want to calm it down a bit!

 

Sandals HERE. (these same sandals are available HERE and they are much better quality if you are willing to pay just a little bit more – which I would recommend bc they are more comfy.)
