Forever 21 … at 26

40 Comments 11 May 2009

One of my favorite stores to shop at is Forever 21 (or XXI) because of their uber-reasonable prices and cute, trendy clothing. In all honesty, I have to be very careful with the way I take care of my clothing from this store, and I have brought home items on more than one occasion that had a hole in them or that didn’t last – so we’re not talking the highest-end clothing here. However, for a fashionista on a budget, like me, it’s a great place to shop, because when my white cami bites the dust, I can easily afford to buy a new one at $2.50 a pop! Anyway, I spent a good 2 hours in the store today, sifting through the racks as usual to find gold. Yes, it’s a total treasure hunt, but worth it in the end. Check out some my purchases!

A total Francophile and former French teacher, I couldn’t pass up this adorable but simple Paris tee.

I’m always on the lookout for new cocktail dresses or summer dresses, and when I put this Satin Swept Pleat dress on, well, I just couldn’t bear to pass it up. It looked so sophisticated and dressy on, plus, at $19.50, it was a downright steal! And yes, I bought it in pink.

I couldn’t resist grabbing one of these classic white button-up shirts with a skinny belt to cinch the waist. A modern spin on a classic look, perfect to pair with my black skirt and heels for a meeting.

I also grabbed one of these gathered knit tunics – it will go great with a pair of jeans but I can also slip it on with a pair of dress pants for a meeting!

    i love the gathered knit tunic. ive been so happy that the trend for shirts has been for them to get longer as ive been getting wider. haha. when i was stick thin i didnt mind belly shirts (of course i was a teenager, too, so it was a bit more fitting) now i want that thing almost to my knees!

    and under $20 for that dress? youve got to be kidding me! someday ill have to check out that store! thanks for the heads up.

    We don’t have a Forever 21 here unfortunately, but I was talking with my 17yr old who works at a store named Sirens and she says that the clothing is pretty much the same!

  11. Nadia says:

    I love Forever 21 as well. My cousin is the one that got me into it, and now I’m hooked! =)
    I didn’t know you were a former French teacher! My native language is French. I’ve been living in the States for 15 years now.

    When I first heard of Forever 21 I told myself I would never shop there because I thought it was mostly for teenagers. Boy was I wrong. Love Love Love their clothes and prices. My sister-in-law dragged me to the store and I am now an official convert.

  13. Stephanie says:

    I LOVE forever 21! Most of my work AND play clothes are from there or H & M!

  14. Christie says:

    I love Forever 21!! They have some interesting stuff, but a lot of great stuff, too! I lvoe their accessories, which are usually super cheap:)

  15. JenniMac says:

    Cute finds. I haven’t shopped at Forever 21 in a few years. It may be time to head back in.

  16. Dana says:

    I really like the tunic. Can be dressed up or down. Great Choice!!!

  17. cassidy engle says:

    this store is sooo easy to get addicted to! and it’s great because you can get trendy pieces (that will only be in style this season) without it costing an arm and a leg!

  18. I have to be honest and tell you I’ve never shopped in a Forever 21. The closest one is about an hour or so away in the Mall of America. Too big and too many people for me. I’d love to get all those great deals!

  19. Whitney says:

    I wish we had a Forever 21 closer. I especially like that first dress and the last tunic.

  20. Vanessa says:

    I’m also a fan of Forever 21 but I agree about the quality.

  21. tuesday says:

    I have never stepped in that store because I didn’t think the clothing was well made but maybe I will check it out!

  22. Anwar says:

    The Paris shirt is awesome! The line work is interesting, and the red heart really pops out.

  23. Aura H. says:

    I haven’t been to the store since I was a teenager but I should check it out again, the tunic is really cute! And with one year old twins almost no clothes last through the summer

  32. Tina W says:

    You made some excellent choices – especially the pink dress! It looks fabulous and with a price like that, it only has to look good for one or two wearings and you’ll get your money’s worth.
