Try-On Shopping Haul

Wow, who would've thought I'd do one of these? Well, you probably did, but I actually hate hauls because the person usually buys about 3 things and drags it out into a 15 minute video/blog post.
The reason I am doing this haul is because I really enjoy telling people about what I bought.

Pink Floyd T-shirt - $15 at Forever21
I'm so excited about this because--EEEEEEEE!--this was such an unlikely find. I was shopping at Forever21 when I found this. We were actually leaving the store when I saw it, and I wanted to go back and buy it, but my friends tried to drag me out. Then my other friend found a pencil case and we had to go back in anyway, so I went back and bought it and I'm so glad I did! I'm not sure if I'll wear it with these exact shorts or not, but I can tell it wouldn't look good with a skirt. I love how they made a masculine band into a girly lace t-shirt. It's a little big for me because it's a Small and I'm an Extra Small.
Description: Black shirt with Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" album cover. Has black lace trim on arm holes and bottom (not neck hole). Almost a muscle tank, but not quite. Large arm holes.

Floral crop top - $9 at Forever21
Also a little big for me (only Forever21's Love21 line carries Extra Smalls) as it's a Small. It's just a floral crop top; I got it because I can never find shirts to wear with all my skirts. It's not too low cut, but just enough to show off my necklace. It's also a little too long because it's a Small so I just tucked it in to the skirt.

Black textured skirt - $10 at Forever21
This skirt has one layer of cotton underneath, and one layer of black floral lace on top. The fabric is super soft and the skirt is a fashion staple: a solid colored, textured skirt that can be paired with any top, plain or patterned. From

Short floral T-shirt - $14 at Kohl's
The reason I initially picked this up was because the fabric is super soft, plus the shirt's pattern is really cute. But when I put it on, it reminded me so much of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (my current obsession) because it's not super long and sometimes shows a sliver of tummy, but shows nothing other times when you pull it down slightly more. Buffy loves to wear shirts this length. It would probably be a crop top on taller people, but I love the length on me. Also, this way there's no extra fabric bunching up at the bottom.

Black leggings shorts - $3 at Forever21
I'm going to use these for wearing under skirts. They're just black cotton shorts, nothing special. They're kind of ugly, which is why I didn't post a picture.

Purple heart necklace - $24 at Piercing Pagoda
Yes, I know. I went there. I shopped at PIERCING PAGODA. I know, I know. But to my surprise, they actually have some nice necklaces! My ears aren't pierced, so I didn't get the matching earrings.
Description: purple Sterling silver heart necklace encrusted with purple crystals (fake).
My only complaint about this necklace is the large triangular jump ring at the top. It's just too big. It was hard to find a necklace I liked because I refused to get one where the jump ring was bigger than the charm itself.

Silver double dolphin charm - $14 at Piercing Pagoda
What? It was buy one, get one half off! I had to buy two! I liked this one because it had no color so it's more simple, and it's very small yet it has an even smaller jump ring. Also, I love the smallness of it. I can wear it with anything, and it won't attract too much attention; it will just sit there looking pretty.
In the picture, if you're wondering, that's the tag at the top in gray. I didn't want to take it off yet.

That will be all. I hope you emjoyed my little haul here, as it took a couple hours to write and photograph.
