^ lol, so is it tacky or just don't fit you right? or maybe it's tacky because it doesn't fit you right? anything can be taken if worn by the wrong person or with the wrong things....

f21 uses everything from nylon to cotton to silk to pvc....to my knowledge, only certain materials attract lint.

point being...i just really have to shake my head when ppl make blanket statements like yours. you can not like a store...heck, i don't like fcuk because i don't like their general fit and style but i'm sure not all their stuff is unwearable as i haven't seen/tried every piece.

oh and the whole no defined style thing? that is the whole POINT of that store. CHEAP TRENDY THRILLS is what defines f21. so if you didn't know, now you do.

I've got to agree with you, ellesea, for the most part.

Of course, not all of it is just trendy cheap thrills, though. If you really dig, you can find perfectly useable items for layering or otherwise that doesn't attract lint and looks perfectly fine (for me, at least!). How a person uses what they buy ultimately defines if it's tacky or not. Yes, their stores are pretty mad but that's easy to bypass if you just use the site and shop carefully.

i prefer shopping at f21 when they start bringing in their fw items. i used to find it tacky because they carried a lot of cheap-looking prints in spring summer but now i get quite a bit of stuff from them. i like buying their accessories and black pieces for layering. some people are surprised to know that it's from f21.

forever 21 is just like any other cheap store chain. in general, the things aren't that nice but if you look you might just find some hidden treasures.

I've just bought what I thought was some basic and classic pieces from there! Spent about $95 for 3 hats, 2 shirts, a belt, pants, and a long cardigan!
Can't wait till it arrives to start piecing different outfits together

I just bought a leather jacket - which is freakishly soft for only $100 (real leather) and fits extremely well and a lace dress that is adorable. Very happy with today's purchases!

Here is the F21 picture, which does it no justice at all...



The leather is sooo soft and squishy.



and here is me wearing it. The sleeves scrunch up really well ^__^

Wow, the leather jacket is so gorgeous. It fits great on you, Michelle!
I think I'll get myself one from their online store... How does the sizing run? Does it run small or big? I usually wear M in tops so should I get a M?

I'd say it runs true to size to a little bit smaller. I am wearing a size S, and my size is usually XS-S.
