Forever 21

Has anyone else lately been so excited to find something cheap and fun at Forever 21 but sadly left empty handed, uninspired and frustrated?Align Center
I know the store overwhelms some but I have to say I have found some of my favorite pieces there. I love to splurge on classic pieces that will last forever and add in some fun accessories and tops from there. The price is right and if you know what you are looking for you can find the perfect item. One of my favorite purses is from there; I get compliments on it and asked if it is a designer purse all the time. I get more comments on it than I do on my designer ones. I even bought skinny jeans there last winter for $12.

Now that you know my love for it I have to say I have been very disappointed with them lately. I leave the store without trying anything on and feeling like everything was way too extreme. Even the high school girls I have gone with feel the exact same way.

Tonight I was on their website and found a great new line of theirs!
It's called Love21 Contemporary and it's made for people our age not the teens!
How cute would these be for the office?
Isn't that jacket great for only $27.
This skirt is only $17
I linked both pictures if you are interested in the items just click on them. Also if you want to browse just this line you can click on the link on the top right of the home page.
If you do order something know that they have changed the size chart for this line, they don't run as small I believe. Sadly the line isn't carried in most stores yet but for something so cheap it can be worth the gamble. There is a store in Colorado that carries it so I may make the drive to go check it out. If I do I will of course fill you in!

I have never been to Forever 21 but I have the same feelings about Old Navy - I never used to buy anything there but I was always full of hope every time I went in...so far this season I have been there 3 times since they have come out with some nice clothes that wont make me look like I am trying to dress for someone 20 years younger :O)

I know people get cute stuff there but I have never had any luck. I may have to check out these new line though!

I stopped going in there because of the same reasons. I got way more stressed out than excited. They just opened a HUGE new store here, so I might have to stop in to see if they carry that line. Keep us updated :)

I have to admit, that store panics me! It is always so hot/crowded/stuffed with clothes that I don't even bother going in. But, those pieces are adorable, so maybe I should just browse online every now and then!

Living in the Fort I rarely get to go to F21...it was a couple years ago that I was there last. I love the website to shop with.

I feel the same about F21 as I do with American Eagle and Aeropostale. Those stores are very hit and miss with me. I will always wear AE jeans but the tops are just awful sometimes!

Where's the store at that carries the new line?

I love that black jacket! I rarely go into Forever 21 these days, but maybe I should pop in the next time I am at a mall.

such a great deal! I love how you can get some good staple wardrobe pieces there for so cheap!

I had no idea they had a new line! I love that jacket! You will have to let us know if you find it in a store and what you think about it.

I love F21 but lately I really haven't found anything that I love. That jacket is gorgeous however so I'm definitely going online to check out the new line!
