Going to Forever 21 makes us feel older than getting our high-school-reunion invites in the mail...but we're totally fine with that. Along with our suitemate's closet and that Goodwill just off campus, Forever 21 was our college style staple — and we're sort of amazed to see that it's still going strong.
Sure, F21 serves up some fashion no-nos (we'll pass on that muscle tank with skull cutout, thanks). But beyond the bandage dresses and sub-Nasty Gal wear, there's so much stuff we want. Like those Perspex-heel pumps to dress up our go-to jeans and tee. Or those cobalt shorts — because every girl needs a pair of scarf-print hot pants, right? Maybe not, but whatever: They're $12, and we're getting them.
