Pretty cheap.


Forever 21 is probably the only modern store I'll shop at and pay full price for clothing. There's something for just about everyone, and it's so cheap! A few years ago I got a skirt at Anthropologie for $88, only to find the exact skirt a few months later at Forever 21 for $25!

There are some really cute vintage inspired items right now, especially for holiday wear. So if your budget is tight, here are some cute things for yourself or for gifts ;)

Clockwise from upper left:Bow headband, $4.80....Grey caplet, $34.80....Bangle, $6.80....Bow slippers, $6.80....Blue sweater, $27.80....Sparrow brooch, $4.80....Gossip girl tee, $10.90

That headband is my favorite...and so reasonable too!

I agree...their selection just seems to get huger and huger! I always feel a tinge of guilt though since I know those low prices result in lower wages for those workers. Yeahh...

I did try on that little cape blouse at a forever21. It wasn't as flattering on me as on that mannequin!

I love to go and buy jewelry there, I have a bangle almost just like that one pictured except mine is more Asian inspired. They have the BEST cheap jewelry. I get complements on all the pieces I have from F21.

I can't wait to come see the shop in the next couple weeks, I am searching for a Plaid 70's winter coat, let me know if you have anything like that! I guess I can just come see for myself.....lol!

I visited this store when I visited New York and was impressed with the quality of its clothing, that I went back 3 times.

The cheese stands alone on this one I guess but I don't like Forever 21,Ive bought a few pieces from them when I was in my early 20's and found they were poorly made and never survived past a few washes.Plus everyone I've known who has worked there has told me about an utterly unethical company it is so I refuse to do business with them at all.

i love that shop so much but their international shipping is ridiculous! it's like $30 or something :(

I rarely see something and buy it without further mental discussion, but I just bought that bird pin.

If anyone opts to order anything, enter the code MISSYOU at checkout by 12/18 to get free standard shipping.

High five, Solanah! I feel the same way about F21. I'm crazy about their designer inspired styles. A few years ago, I found an Anna Sui look-a-like top at a thrift shop for a few bucks. This top was by F21, which closely resembled an Anna Sui for Anthropologie peasant top, which was being sold for about $300.

Thanks for these recommendations. I might just stop by F21 tomorrow. :)

That blue cardigan is so lovely, and very reasonably priced...i can just never bring myself to buy something new from a shop.

Lorena said...

Hurray for F21.... it's always a MUST to visit. Indeed they have stuff for everyone-

Nina said...

I like Forever 21...I remember when their clothes used to be even cheaper...ha! They have really cute jewelry pieces, but what I hate is that they are very cheaply made and break easily. I'd pay more if it were better made. It is also hard to find anything there in a size large. It's all a sea of xsmall and mediums...that is mostly everywhere though! I don't shop there as much as I used to. Great picks though!
