If you read my last post, you’d see that I had some trouble when shopping at the Forever 21 on Long Island. But I still had some hope left in me when I went to NYC, which is like one of the bigger Forever 21 stores ever. Incase you were wondering where it is, it’s in the middle of Times Square and it is HUMONGOUS. It is four floors, YES I SAID IT.. FOUR FLOORS of adorable clothing at a cheap price. I love it.
So, I went to the plus size section and it was alright. First of all, I wish it was a little bigger. I know it “technically” is still a new business venture of Forever 21, but I wish it was bigger. It took up about I’d say 1/6 of the third floor. The floors are big, I’d just like to see more of a selection. I’m going to stop bitching now, let’s get to the review of my shopping day experience.
So I’ve been DYING for a blazer, I got money from my mom’s boyfriend for a blazer and when I shopped at Torrid, I couldn’t find any blazers that looked good. I always have trouble with jackets and stuff for some reason, City Chic jackets never worked and Torrid’s were always a little weird on me. And I know Forever 21 has some cute blazers, so I first started trying the blazers on. They fit pretty well, but the problem was that the sleeves were too long. And even when I rolled up the sleeves on the blazer, it just didn’t look that good. It was really upsetting, but I persevered, knowing that I had to find something cute there. I couldn’t give up hope over something silly like a blazer.
So my mom and I shopped around the section. I learned that at Forever 21, you have to do A LOT of digging around. The store is messy and there’s always like clothes packed on the racks. When you grab one shirt, three other shirts fall off and it’s just really frustrating to shop there. But luckily, I was able to find a couple of cute items that I’m really happy about.
First, I found this amazing Red Fleece Jacket. The jacket also comes with a hoodie in gray which adds a cute touch. I can’t wait to take a picture wearing it because it seriously is so much cuter in person than it is online. It’s not that heavy though, but I’m not expecting it to be at the price. The only complaint I really have is that it has a deep v-neck when it’s buttoned. So you basically always have to wear a scarf with it. But it’s really cute and it looks a lot more elegant than a 30 dollar purchase. A++++++ So happy with this purchase.
I really love one of my sweaters that I got from Forever 21 over the summer, it was really comfortable and cute, so I was looking for another one. I luckily found this shirt, the Heathered Crochet Bib Top. It’s really cute and is perfect just to wear with jeans. I really like it because it’s nice enough to wear to something nice, but makes a quick easy outfit that’s not only cute, but comfortable to wear. A-
The last thing I got as was the Striped Bow Swing Tank. This shirt is SUCH a steal! It is a cute shirt and was only $8.80. Like I would buy any shirt despite what it looked like as long as it fit for that price. It’s really cute with the bow and sits well. I feel like it’d be a perfect shirt for when it gets hotter. I also was trying it on and put a jacket over it and it also looked good. A
The last thing I got is my favorite shirt ever. Although it hasn’t been posted on the F21 website yet, this is the closest thing I could find. The Eyelet Back Blouse is really similar to it. The only difference is that the shirt has a cream/see through color to it and there is like a racerback design on the back of it. It seriously though is one of my favorite shirts I’ve ever gotten. I wore it out the other night and got SO MANY compliments on it. Especially when it’s paired with great accessories. I was trying it on in the changing rooms or whatever it’s called and couldn’t stop smiling once I put it on. It looks exactly like something my friends would wear. I’ve always complained that I just want to look like all other girls my age, so it was really nice to do that. A++++++++++++ A+++++++
Let’s not get ahead of ourself, last time I bought like 50 shirts and was head over heels in love with Forever 21. I got a couple of items, my total was 66 bucks (which was lovely), but I just wish there was more of a selection. F21 clearly has a great design team because so many people shop there to begin with. I just wish they would get the designers that make clothes for the skinnier people to get clothes to make for us.
Anyways, comments are always appreciative. xoxo
