Forever 21

Whenever I walk into Forever 21 I really have to search for something that’s appropriate for me to wear and not seem too trendy/teeny-bopper-ish. It doesn’t help that the store can give anyone ADD just by walking in. But I was very surprised when I decided to shop at our indoor mall and came across the “NEW” Forever 21.

They took over an old Mervyn’s and is now two…uno, dos…two stories and 80,000 square feet. The old store was a single-story and 7,000 sq ft. It’s so organized and you can browse without bumping into anyone. There are different sections – 21Men, Heritage 1981, HTG81 (kids), Twelve by Twelve, Love 21. I love it!

Here are two outfits with Forever 21 pieces. The cardigan is the Wrap Up Cardigan in Navy.

Tee: J Crew Perfect Tee
Cami: Gap
Jeans: Gap

Today I went to our Christmas Ladies Luncheon and wore another F21 piece (which I could never find online). It is the lace cami that is layered over the J Crew FS Posy Cami. I bought the Lace Cami about a month ago.

Cami: J Crew Factory Silk Pleated Posy
Cardigan: Express (old)
Belt: Forever 21
Jeans: Gap
Shoes: J Crew Penelope in Black/Gray

I received lots of compliments on the Lace Cami. It’s not cheap looking or feeling at all. I like the scalloped edging too. I think it would have looked better with a longer cardigan but I wanted to be a little festive and this was the only red sweater I have.

Have a great day!

    I know what you mean about the ADD. I will only go to F21 right after the store opens in the morning bc by 11am it's a disaster. At least at 10am there is some sense of order.

    Great lace tank. it looks like it should be one piece the with j.crew one. So cute!

    The cami is gorgeous!

    I, too, know what you mean about the F21 store. It gives me headaches in a matter of minutes. But last time I was there I was able to find a very pretty skirt that intend to wear soon.
