Forever 21 Treat: A Pretty Bow Shirt

Sometimes you just need a little fashion pick-me-up. This is all good, just as long as you don’t let your “treat” turn into an oops-I-accidentally-blew-my-rent-on-a-pair-of-shoes. This Forever 21 t-shirt is the perfect option. A basic with a fun bow detail, it’s just enough to add a bit of newness to your wardrobe this week. (We’d…

A More Wearable Skinny Jean

For so long the skinny jean has either been uber-hipster or uber-sexy. Now it’s found some middle ground by becoming just a bit boyish, thanks to Forever 21’s construction pocket cut which has been adapted for a tight leg. The flattering back pockets add a little something different too, so maybe, for the first time,…

Brown And Black Come Together At Last

This two-tone cardigan from Forever 21’s Twelve by Twelve line proves our point that black and brown can be worn together. Notice how the taupe-y brown softens the basic black so the complete look has a classic Chanel feel, but the zipper flower pin adds a bit of kitsch. Pair this cardigan with blue or…

Gimme, Gimme Twelve By Twelve

Forever 21 has unveiled the new arrivals to the Twelve by Twelve line, and we’re totally smitten. Maybe it’s the styling. Maybe it’s the fact that model Georgie Badiel is the epitome of Parisian chic, despite hailing from Burkina Faso. Or maybe it’s simply the clothes. One thing’s for sure, we’ve got some spending to…

Get Your Hands Off

Forever 21 goes avant-garde with their new skirt offering, which gives a new meaning to the phrase “hands-on attention.” We’re not really sure how we feel about it though. [Forever 21]…

Forever 21’s Blatant Banksy Copycat

Please, Forever 21, at least try to make it look like you’re not totally ripping off the street artist Banksy with this $22 cotton hoodie. Admittedly, he probably doesn’t care that he’s being ripped off by a mall chain store: Banksy is so “arty” that he doesn’t sell doodads with his designs on them; instead…

Forever 21 Goes Militant

It might have taken a while for the military jacket trend to trickle down to the affordable mass retailers, but we’ve finally found a version we love. (Of course, when you spend time seeking out the perfect alternative to the luxury model, the second you find something, no one’s really talking about it anymore. Which…

Check Out Forever 21’s New Beauty Line

Continuing their obvious bid for complete and total retail domination, Forever 21 has expanded into beauty, because clearly they’re not satisfied simply sticking to fast fashion. The new collection, Love & Beauty, will launch on Nov. 8 and include lip gloss, mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner. While the products surely won’t be Sephora-style quality, it’ll most…

Skinny Jeans—For Less Than 10 Bucks!

Forever 21 has just released a pair of dark wash, one-percent stretch skinny jeans for $9.50. Yes, $9.50. (I’ve been known to spend more on lunch!) Got to say, they’ve got the right amount of spandex stretch to be flattering, are in a great, go-anywhere wash and, on the model at least, look to be…

Cheapskate: Forever 21

Any fashionista worth her wardrobe knows that she can buy trendy stuff from Forever 21, but who really has the patience to wade through all the crap and mess that plagues the actual store? We don’t, that’s for sure. So we’ll just surf the website to find all the trendy and classic (bet you didn’t…

Forever 21 Debuts A “Punk” Line, Sid Vicious Rolls In His Grave

Forever 21 debuted their “Twist” line online today, which they call “Fashion With A Twist Of Punk!” I love shopping at Forever 21 so I checked it out. I found a very cute swing-y, satiny gray skirt ($19.80) I love and a shiny, black-and-gray striped strapless dress ($24.80) that’d be cute to wear out dancing.

Crave: Forever 21 Knit Jacket

When the weather turns crisp, style obsessions turn to fall coats. However, thanks to this Forever 21 design, we’re now finding the idea of the non-coat sexier for in-between weather. The heather grey color, piping, and hefty waist tie make this knit sweater-coat look like a designer number you’d see on chic Fashion Week attendees.

Crave: Zebra Stripe Skinny Jeans

Finally, some animal print pants to wear so you’ll fit in during all-night “Real Housewives Of New Jersey” viewing sessions. Sure, leopard print might be more New Jersey-erffic, but we can definitely get on board with this overture by Forever 21 at Fabulosity, too. It takes a fashionista of hearty stock to pull off zebra…

Dressing Like A Circus Freak Isn’t An Insult Anymore

We know, we get it: Vampire fashion is so hot right now. But we all know human blood (or True Blood, for that matter), is a bitch to get out of silk. What’s another trend you can jump on? Circus chic. No, seriously…

Crave: Bookworms Need Love, Too

If you’ve been holed up in the library stacks for so long that your face is as pasty-white as this tee shirt, you, my dear, need some lovin’. Thanks, Forever 21, for reminding the menfolk that nerdy girls need affection, too. [$16.90, Forever 21]…

Get Ready To Fill Your House With More Cheap (Hopefully Cute) Stuff!

Move over Ikea, there’s a new king of cheap furniture in town: The Los Angeles-based company, Forever 21, which is forever legendary in our minds for selling $21 knockoffs of $2100 dresses, is now launching a home collection. The line will launch at Forever 21’s largest stores later on this year, followed by a debut…

Why Will People Keep Buying Chanel and Vuitton In A Recession?

Apparently Topshop, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Forever 21 aren’t doing too badly in the recession, even as their peers are experiencing millions of dollars in losses. A WWD survey of a 100 luxury industry experts came up with those four brands as the most likely to succeed in this economy and, as you can see,…

Say What?! Kim Kardashian Isn’t Plus Size Or A Size 2

Forever 21 will debut a plus-size collection in May called Faith 21. Us Weekly dished on Faith 21 in a recent issue, but the mag misleadingly connected Kim Kardashian to the new line. Here’s a little faith for fuller-figured fashionistas: On May 1, they can try on a new plus-size line, Faith 21, from hi…

Forever 21 Jumps on Plus-Sized Bandwagon

It would seem that American body image desires are shifting — an NYU study found that in a depressed economy, men go for meatier women, while super-curvy singer Beth Ditto recently made an impression with her nude Love cover and is planning a plus-size clothing line. And she’s not alone — now megachain Forever 21…

Coming Soon! Forever 21 Swimwear

On my daily (um, I mean, bi-monthly) visit to Forever 21’s web site, guess what I saw? At some TBD future date, they’re coming out with $12.80-and-up swimwear sometime soon! Oh no, this is going to be so bad on my wallet. Already I’m addicted to their cute cotton panties and their dress-up clothes &#8212…
