I’m a few days out of completing my 2 week challenge and I can say that it was more difficult than I anticipated. My closet is filled with about 80% Forever21 but I never wear it head to toe. Normally, it is something I sprinkle in with higher end pieces and classic staples.
I had the hardest time with shoes and handbags. Shoes are always tricky because you don’t want to kill your feet, luckily the picks I chose were not devastating. Now, I will admit I am a handbag snob – to me, that is the one piece you need to splurge on. A nice handbag will elevate your outfit and can last a lifetime. But, Forever21 did have some fabulous designer look-a-likes that can hold you over til its time to splurge.
Coincidentally, Forever21 launched their new ad campaign the same week I started my challenge. “ForeverYou” is aimed to target a customer beyond 21 and really strives for higher fashion. I have read articles, here, comparing the new ad campaign to the likes of Zara. I really believe Forever21 is only going to get bigger and better. Stay tuned, I think we are really going to see some fabulous, affordable fashion.
