On the other hand, I've found some pretty classic pieces there that look way more expensive than they are and have lasted me for years. My favorite is when someone asks where I got my jacket and I say Forever 21. The next response is a look of confusion/slight disgust. Yep : )
And recently I've found even more good stuff on their website. I especially like shopping on their site because:
• You can look at everything in a neatly design web page, rather than having to trudge through the often over-crowded racks at the store.
• Online purchases can be returned for a full refund, where at the store you can only exchange items for store credit (except jewelry. I think that's always final sale).
• Rarely do the retail locations have sales, or if they have a sale rack its small and never very good. Online you can see what's on sale right away and there is more of it.
For instance, this sweater is on sale for 5.99. Now even if it is 55% acrylic that is not a bad deal.
Here's a jacket I found today on the site. It's so dang cute and comes in three colors. This kind of thing is less risky to purchase online because it's a jacket and most likely it will fit nicely if you get the right size. Price: $24.80. Not too shabby.
So there ya go. Eye candy for your Monday morning, and a new site to waste minutes on while we procrastinate actually doing some work today. I love the Internet.
