Remember back in the day when Limited, Too was the one and only cool place for clothes? Everyone had the same pajama bottoms from there and the same pleated denim mini skirt (what were we thinking?).
Forever 21 is the grown up Limited, Too. Only I’m betting it’s probably cheaper. I love Forever 21 for a variety of reasons. They certainly are up-to-date on the most recent trends and they’re prices are amazing, but the quality : cost ratio is oftentimes downright terrible.
I’ve found that it’s best to stick to what I know is good. And thus far, I’ve narrowed that down to Forever’s $10.50 skinny jeans (love), their bras and their Love 21 line, which features more “conservative” styles and is basically classier stuff in better fabrics and pastel, pretty colors. It’s all meant to fit your body, not mutate it.
I haven’t checked out Forever’s recent activewear section, though, and I must admit that they have cranked out a bunch of cute, colorful stuff. As I mentioned before, wearing bright workout clothes helps to motivate me to actually, you know, work out.
I’m typically a fan of the Nike goods, but I got to say, this cami top quickly caught my eye. I love the spaghetti straps and the slightly-sexy, just-a-little-extra-skin back. (Also, a shout-out to their halter top. Too many options!) My only beef is that I wish it came in more colors (pink gives me a headache… where’s the blue? Green?). Plus, if it came in blue, it could match their black and blue biker shorts. Obsessed.
