Wedges

What I Wore: Victoria's Secret plaid top, Kamiseta DIY shorts, Mango bag, Forever21 wedge boots.


Finally got my hands on the Forever21 boots I've been eyeing for ages. Saw them on the site a good one or two months ago and I was just dying to have them. When they finally opened in Manila, I wasnt sure whether they were going to have stocks of these shoes there, especially since I thought that the branch here would get old and unwanted stocks. But I was wrong.

Unknowingly, I went to Forever21 last Monday just to go check it out. I never visited the shop since its opening but I just knew that Monday was the perfect day to visit it --and it was. No crowd whatsoever. And then I saw the shoes. THE SHOES. Theres actually a pretty long story to that. I first saw them on a mannequin and just wanted to buy them immediately. I asked an assistant for help regarding the shoes and she said there were no more stocks! --that it was the last pair left, in either size 8 or 9, and that they had it ever since the opening so its already run out. She actually asked another sales person and she said the same thing that there were no more stocks. At first I asked her if she could remove it from the mannequin, but she said they cant. Asked her if I could come back the next day for it, but she said they only change the mannequin's outfits every after each new stock delivery. I was really fighting for it because I wanted them ever since I saw it on the site. But I had no other choice. I had to give them up. Atleast, for a month or until they get new stocks. Hence, I just asked her if I could give her my number and if they could give me a call once they get new stocks of it (Yes, I had to go through ALL that). She actually even told me that they only get stocks of a certain item ONCE so it is very unlikely that they will get new stocks of it. Yet I persisted. I told her that I really wanted them bad so I'll just leave my number and she'd give me a call once they have them. She agreed.

After the whole thrill and adrenaline rush with the shoes, I looked around the store more. And thats when I saw the shoes and bags area. The shop was so big that I missed it the first time I went through it. I walked closer, and there they were, FIVE STOCKS of the same ankle boots that the sales assistant earlier stated were "OUT OF STOCK." So I looked for my size (8!) and got all giddy when they had it. At the same time, I was pretty pissed off because I couldnt believe I just went through all that with a sales personnel who didnt know what she was talking about. Parang hello, ginagago mo ba ako? I mean like, I understand with all the items F21 has in their store. But please, atleast train your personnel well enough to actually know where they're working and what they're selling. As much as it is a great store with fabulous items, it gets you down when you are surrounded with employees like that. I'm loving the shoes, but I expect better service next time. Forever 21 has a name to live up to, people!

i think that's a concern for forever 21 stores all over.. i've had an experience like that here.. it's for pants.. i was looking for a particular size and i was in the fitting room, but the salesperson told me they didn't have it already.. so i ended up leaving the pants in the fitting area.. after much browsing, i finally saw the size i wanted.

that's the real concern with big big stores like f21 who not only have lots of items, but the turnover of stocks is so continuous and ever changing..
