Fabulous Finds at Forever 21

by Jessica Sturdy on January 6, 2013

I was doing some online perusing this weekend and I found some FABULOUS pieces at Forever 21! I started tweeting them, but they were too good not to share with my non-tweeting followers. Enjoy!

It’s kind of funny, some of my favorite pieces have come from Forever 21. I’ve found that with a little tweaking, you can turn some of their pieces into items that you’ll have for the long haul. For example, take my Forever 21 Faux Fur Vest. Originally, it came with some ugly ribbon sash on it, but I just removed the sash and cut off the ribbon loops on the side. And wah lah, a cute, versatile vest that I’ve been wearing for 4 years now!

PS – Hurry! You know how their diamond-in-the-rough pieces sell out quickly! :)

I’ve been debating over that leopard jacket for so long…such a staple piece!

I wish I could score some staples from Forever21! I always feel overwhelmed with the amount of clothing and people in there!

PS – “wah lah” is “viola” ;)

Sorry it’s VOILÀ… not viola (it’s mean rape at 3e person at the past tense)!

Thanks for the tip…I never thought to take away from Forever21 pieces, because often I like aspects of pants or a top or something but then there’s a cheesy add-on. Will try!

You weren’t kidding with some of these fab finds, I went online and threw about 7 of these things in my bag to purchase and try! Thanks!

Gosh, I love Forever 21. You can find so many great items there for so cheap!!

I will say though, I have a few pieces that I absolutely love & adore from F21 but I also have a few (I should really say “a lot”) of pieces that fell apart or shrunk or faded from there as well. I’ve learned you have to be really careful with what you pick out & ensure that the fabric will hold up over time!

Love the items you picked!

TOTALLY agree. Some of the things you buy there, you know you will only wear once (due to the quality or overly trendy nature), which doesn’t make them so budget-friendly after all!

I was loving all the pieces you were tweeting from F21!

I totally agree with this post – I have bought wool coats there, swapped out the buttons and they’ve lasted me for years. I love when you can find hidden gems there like this :)

I have that EXACT fur vest and have been wondering if it’s the same one from Forever21 from your posts, and now that you mentioned the silk ribbon it came with, totally confirmed! I took it out too :) Love the finds, thanks!
