What You Should Buy At Forever 21

Every now and then I’ll go into Forever 21 and they’ll just be killing it. Great fits, great materials, great quality, and right on trend. It is serious excitement for me when that happens. Sit down and catch my breath type excitement. Other times I’ll go in and it’s a dearth of bad clubbing attire and I just feel depressed.

I generally consider myself a Forever 21 pro. Having been a student or the wife of a student for seven of my eight years of marriage, I have gotten really good at spotting the diamond in the rough of cheap poly blends at the Forever 21. And shouldn’t I use my powers for good? Don’t you think so?

Forever 21 is a great way to safely try a trend you’re not sure about just yet. If it turns out to be a bust, you’re usually only out about $25. Forever 21 is also great for when you decide you are really into a certain trend, and you want to buy in bulk without feeling overly ridiculous about it–or is that just me and my striped shirt collection?

After the jump, here’s the best of what’s in stock and what you should buy at the Forever 21 right now!
