Forever 21 Mania in Manila

Forever 21 fever is on! Or at least for people here in Manila. This American chain of clothing retailers has recently opened its second branch at SM Makati. (The first branch is housed at the enormous SM Megamall.) I was in Makati last Sunday with the boyfriend, his sister A and some friends from Cebu. After having a hearty lunch at Good Earth Tea Room courtesy of the vouchers I got from Groupon Philippines, we decided to burn some calories by walking our way to the nearby SM Makati. I asked our group to peek into the Forever 21 store before heading to Mall of Asia (MOA) to meet up with more friends.

We didn’t know it was just the second day of opening of Forever 21 so we were kinda surprised at how big the crowd was. Boy, was the store huge! As soon as we stepped inside the store, I saw people everywhere I looked. There were lots of merchandise to choose from, I tell you. But it was quite difficult to actually inspect the items and decide to buy because we were in a hurry as we were supposed to go to MOA. In short, I left the store empty-handed but promised myself to be back soon.

Anyway, I saw a lot of fashionable dresses, cute tops, girly skirts and tons of lovely accessories. I am definitely going back for that cocktail ring I had the chance of trying on my finger. It had this nude pink gem with studs on the edges. It retails for just P399 and I think I can afford to buy it. Haha.

Have you checked out Forever 21 – SM Makati yet? What’s in your haul?
