Terra said it best when talking about Forever 21 recently, "when you are closer to 40 than 20, you feel a little weird shopping there".
I immediately jumped to comment on her blog and agree.
You all already know how difficult it is for me to shop in a sea of round racks.
And millions of different items mashed in together tends to make me nauseous.
That being said, I have recently found a few really great things in there recently.
Oh sure, when you spend under $20 for an item, you can expect the fabric to pill where your blazer rubbed against it.
Isn't that what those electric shavers are for?
And to get a great "trend on" piece for mere dollars sounds good to me.
When I saw the satin shirt with the side tie I almost died.
I loved the detail and it certainly did not strike me as an item ticked at $18!
I wore it the very next day to work and when people asked where I got it, they were shocked that it was F21....it looks like so much more.
After such a good find, I ducked back into the store closest to my home on Monday morning.
And I found this cute dress.
Sure it's a little short...but with leggings?
satin shirt: f21
fur: vintage, thrifted
leather biker jacket: id
