Love21

Up until this last year, I had no problem going into Forever21 and shopping up a storm. I like it because they have trendy pieces for low prices. If something goes out of style in a week, why should I care? I only paid $15 for the shirt anyway. But since turning 25 I feel uncomfortable in this store. Seriously, it's filled with teeny tiny pre-teen girls, applying their super shiny lip gloss and typing away on their iphones. It appears that you can not really be Forever 21 after all.

That is until I discovered their new line, Love21, and according to their website, Love21 has a more sophisticated and modest fit than Forever21. I'm excited to try it out, but it's only going to be at select locations, found here. Otherwise, do your shopping online and be quick about it. One of the shirts I really wanted is already sold out!!!

Even the models seem more "mature."

Thanks for the heads up on Love21. I agree that we can't all really be Forever 21. I'm excited about this more "mature" line!

CUTE!!! We have a Forever21 here but I hardly go in there because of the same reasons you talked about. I would have never known. Oh how I love the blogworld.
