As crazy as it sounds, I’ve never shopped at Forever 21. I’ve blogged about them, but never dropped any cash at a F21 store. So, I decided I’d change all of that as I’m in the market for a new pair (or two!) of skinny jeans.
I checked out the Union Square location in NYC and the crowd was just annoying. Yes, I can manage to deal with pushy thrift store crowds, but for some reason the crowd at Forever irked me.
I made my way to the jeans and was underwhelmed with the selection. That kinda surprised me because I always find cute stuff when I surf forever21.com.
I moved upstairs to the dressy area and looked around. I came across a flirty, fringe number, but I wasn’t really sure if it was a mini or a shirt. But it reminded me of Giambattista Valli’s Fringed Leather Mini Skirt (there’s a green and white version in last month’s Glamour).
I didn’t buy the dress (it was way too short and I didn’t like the texture of the fringes) but I thought it was funny this under $30 garment automatically made me thing of the Giambattista Valli I saw months ago.
Though I didn’t find the one thing I wanted (guess I’ll just look online), I walked away with a cute romper, earrings and a pearl headband…all for $21.
