What You Should NOT Be Buying At Forever 21… EVER.

Forever 21 is not what it used to be. There were times in years past when I’d go in the store and just have to scratch my head at all the bizarre, ugly, terrifying things for sale. Nowadays it’s just as overstuffed, and there is a great deal of questionable fashion going on that you have to weed through to find the gems, but it’s not the same. It’s not nearly as easy to find the horrifically awful.

But that doesn’t mean it’s not still there…

After the jump, the things you should NOT be buying at Forever 21. Not right now, and not EVER.
