Has anyone here been to one of Forever 21's ForLove stores? For months now I've walked by the shop at my local mall without stepping inside, but the other day my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to take a peek. I felt like a kid in a candy store, only with necklaces and scarves taking the place of sweets! In the end I walked away with a spot tie dye scarf and an orange coin purse (I'll post photographs later), all for around $12 or so.

I love Forlove, I dont care how cheap their quality is. They do have some great jewelry sometimes. Just stay away from the gold stuff though because they fade

I want to get these shoes from F21 but I'm not sure how the quality is like shoe-wise because I never purchased them before. What do you guys think?

The link you posted leads to an error page, so I'm not sure what your shoes look like, but from my experience their shoes are nice enough quality. I paid around $15 for a pair of patent flats last summer and they still look as good as the day I received them in the mail. A few scuffs on the front, but that's more due to my clumsiness than the quality.

I agree about the stores being a treasure hunt - not only are things in piles or super tightly filled racks, but once you find something you like it will likely have a ripped seam or loose strap (at least that has been my experience). So I can imagine shopping online would be a better option in that aspect.

Ever since they started shipping internationally F21 has been all the rage here. The tabloids fashion pages are filled with their stuff. Personally I don't think it's so different from what you could find here that it'd be worth to risk getting hit with customs duties.

Can someone comment on the quality of their scarves?
I'm interested in ordering them (i'm currently located overseas) but don't want to end up with scratchy itchy fabrics.

I kinda agree. Still. I wanted to buy some stuff, but the shipping rates put me off.

I have them, I'm a size 5-5.5 and the smallest size F21 carries is a 6 so I had to make do with those so they're too big for me. Sorry that's not much help, but if you go to the Affordable Alternatives to Designer Shoes thread, I know a few other girls have also bought them so you could try asking them.

I would stay away from the shoes...they generally look really cheap in real life. I have the same issue with shoe size

Their shoes kinda run small. I am a true size 7, sometimes can fit 6.5 and I got a pair of gladiator sandals and they were a size 7 but too small. I wish they had half sizes so I could've gotten a 7.5.

That is the problem I have with their gold jewelry. But really, you pay for what you get.

Forever21 is coming to Vancouver! I don't know whether to be happy or sad. I loved looking forward to visiting their locations in Washington state or any other places whenever I visited the US. It felt like such a treat And then every once in awhile I'd order off the Canadian website... Now it's going to be so..... accessible

^^omg! i was totally devastated when i heard! i loved going on road trips out there and now everyone around here is going to be more cookie cutter-ish (especially since we have H&M and Urban Outfitters here now too). this majorly bites! why would they do that?!
