I’ve mentioned it a few times here and there, but if you don’t know, I’m the Senior Buyer of Accessories and Jewelry at Forever 21. That means, my team and I are responsible for the styles you see, and buy, in stores and online. It feels weird to put that in writing on my blog every time… I don’t know why, I guess it’s always been something I’ve kept super separate from Worship Worthy. But lately, when I’ve met people or people have asked what I do, they’ve been surprised and have encouraged me to share it a little bit more, so here we are!

Most people think that being a Buyer means that I basically shop for a living. And to an extent, you’d be right. But there is also so much more that goes into it. My job is SO much fun, but it’s also a lot of hard work. Essentially I work on a daily basis with vendors that provide us products, and they own factories overseas to produce the goods. They send me samples, or I develop samples with them, we the decide which items we are going to buy and take into stores and from there I am involved with what colors to buy, how many units we need, what the retail price should be, etc. So as much as I am working creatively with accessories, I’m also deep into Excel sheets, financial reports and analyzing data.

My job is incredibly fun, and I’m so thankful to be where I am. I literally dreamed of being a Buyer in the fashion industry since I was 12… yes, 12. Coming to California to live my dream still feels surreal. It’s a lot of hard work, but I’m so grateful.

I thought it would be fun to share the styles that I have bought for F21, that you can get your hands on RIGHT NOW! I have to admit, it’s crazy to see these styles live, and real. Makes me so happy to see them making others happy- and proud.

I hope you love these pieces as much as I do!

You guys know I’m a jewelry fanatic, obviously, so I feel super compelled to tell you that the statement earring trend is NOT going away. It’s been around for a while now, but this year it’s really taken off. And if you’re not already on board, it’s time to hop on, ladies! There are so many options to choose from, there is literally no excuse. If your style is edgy, or boho, or classic, or sexy, or whatever else there is, there are earrings FOR YOU, boo!

Earrings are such a great way to add some spice to your outfit! Necklaces are great and all, but earrings pack a little more punch, in my opinion. You can be wearing a black tank top, jeans, and flip flops, then adding a colorful statement earring completely changes the look.
