Monday Fun W/ F21 RED

F21RED

Annnd welcome back from the weekend. Mondays are rough, I know, so I'm kicking off the week with a little giveaway action on Instagram today to try and make things a littleeee more bearable. I've partnered with fashion giant Forever 21 to celebrate the opening of their new F21 RED store in Downtown Brooklyn (located at 490 Fulton St.), and give away a $50 F21 RED gift card to one lucky winner. Get the details on how to enter here.

I had a chance to preview the store with my own gift card in hand a few weeks ago, and if you can believe it, pretty much everything was priced slightly lower than at a regular Forever 21 store, which means you can get a whole lotta bang for your buck. I was able to score a super cute sweater dress, plus these black skinny jeans (just $12.90, seriously! And they fit a lot better than quite a few of my pricer pairs.) and this lace-up denim top ($17.90), all c/o Forever 21. 

I paired the top and skinnies together on a trip to Williamsburg over the weekend, and braved the cold to take a few shots sans coat. I added a gifted wool hat to the mix, and finished the look off with a new leather bag (a recent Christmas gift!), plus a pair of $6 sunnies and some $26 black booties.
