Wardrobe Expansion

I know some people hate Forever 21, but hey, it's cheap and rent in LA is high so that's where I shop. During a trip to the store this week, I picked up a few items to add to my summer wardrobe.


$1.50


And since it's pink and green Thursday, here are a few of my pink and green F21 items I wouldn't mind owning.












Floral Lace Dress
$24.80


What's your opinion on the retail chain?


To join in on the Pink & Green Thursday fun, head on over to Pink Preppy Lily Lover!

Exciting news: tomorrow I am guest blogging for Kori of Blonde Episodes! Be sure to stop by and read my Fashion Friday post!!

I don't live anywhere near a Forever 21... but I wish I did!
I stopped at a store while in Toronto recently... picked up 4 items (2 dress, a top and a blazer) and they are some of my favorite pieces! Cute and super affordable!

I love F21, so nicely priced and cute stuff!

Miss Angie said...

Who cares if people hate it? I LOVE accessories there, and when I lose the weight I'll probably shop there more often. They're cheap and fashionable, so why not?

I'm loving that teal.

And still not getting what Pink and Green Thursday is in theme...

I totally agree with you on F21. I know a lot of people do hate it but it's so cheap and their pieces are really cute! Love what you picked!

KDC Events said...

I have never shopped there but it looks like they have cute stuff!

Leesh said...

I like the star charm and the ruffle dress. There is no shame in shopping at F21. I think we all do. It's cheap and why the not shop there so you can get more bang for your buck.

Love F21! I may be too old for this store...haha...but I love it. I'm short, and it's got things there I actually fit in (not always though), and as you said it so nicely it is cheap! :)

Madeline said...

I really like everything you've got. And I usually like what they have at Forever21.
I'm craving for a shopping spree as well. :)

Meghan said...

I love Forever 21. I actually call it Forever 31:) You're never too old for cuteness, right?

Christianna said...

I freaking LOVE Forever 21! I can't help it. I call it the black hole, cause you get sucked in and it's hard to get back out...

ae said...

I am loving that cardigan! I may have to make a trip to F21 soon.

Oh I love the cardigan! Our store is under a huge 3 story re-model, can't wait till it re-opens.

christi @ burlap and basil said...

i agree -- forever 21 is great for certain things, especially with rent high in LA {we live here too!}. like your finds ... i posted some last night, too!

Christina said...

I love Forever 21. It's got the cutest, trendiest stuff so cheap. It's not meant to last forever, but neither do trends. I love the empire waist top and both dresses. So cute!

Lauryn said...

I've shopped at Forever 21 a lot through the years, but the one at our local mall is GIGANTIC. I'm tempted to hold hands with my friends when we shop there so we don't get lost. I have no idea how they get enough clothes to fill the place, but they do!

Cute buys!

Elina K said...

I think Forever 21 is so misunderstood! They have some cute pieces and the accessories are lovely too! Everytime I wear a F21 piece noone can tell the difference between it and some other more expensive pieces in my wardrobe!
I found u on ifb and I'm now following you1 Feel free to do the same! x

I absolutely love the pink cardigan. And who hate f21? They are only the cheapest cute clothing store around. lol.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Looks like you did really well! Everything is super cute!

Jules said...

I have to trek down to Delaware for the closest Forever 21, but it's worth the trip. The store is huge and they have a great selection. They're also cheap, which is key! I don't like to spend a lot on clothes and would much rather splurge on a great handbag or pair of shoes.

I love the cardigan you got and the green one shoulder dress is really pretty.

Josie said...

Lady, no worries -- I'm all about the F21! And I love that teal dress.

bananas. said...

that lace dress is a good find!

i have a love/hate relationship with f21...only b/c most f21 shoppers are basically zygotes...aka youngins.

Belly B said...

I loveeeee the first top!! Gorgeous!!!

<3 Belly B

Erin said...

Ha I admit it too, I am a F21 shopper even though a lot of my friends stick their noses up about it. I feel like if you put the effort into looking you can find cute stuff like yours that doesn't look cheap.

And random question...any advice to someone moving to LA? I'm graduating from college in Arizona next year and will probably end up making the move. Thx!

I don't know what people have against Forever 21! Its a great place to get trendy things for a great price. And every once in awhile I see something I never would've guessed came from there. So many cute things!

hotpants™ said...

I have only just recently jumped on the Forever 21 bandwagon. I especially love their cheap jewelry.

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

Let the haters hate. I LOVE Forever 21!! I get stuff from them at least once a week. They have great stuff.

Trish {Pink Preppy Lilly Lover} said...

Hi Leeann! What fabulous finds and wonderful new additions to your summer wardrobe! I especially love the striped lace back top and pink cardi with the flower brooch. Too cute and super sexy! F21 is so great for keeping up with the trends without spending a fortune. Well done lady! xoxox Hugs!
